Sacred Women’s Teachings
Orfeos 13, Iliopouli, Ground floor,
This workshop is for women who want to become reacquainted with their natural cycles.
In ancient times women were taught in a “Red Tent” setting by elders. This tradition has been lost in our culture of alienation and lack of reverence for our elders. In these lost traditions, women and men were taught how to become a woman, a mother and finally an elder. They were taught how to move through the stages of their lives from virgin to mother to elder with ritual and rites of passage. Through this workshop based on Native American Sacred Women’s teachings, passed to me by Laura Shurts through her teacher Nanatasis, I will introduce you to these sacred teachings and assist you in your transformation. Learn what it means to be a ‘sacred’ woman, the women’s medicine wheel teachings, moon time teachings, the four seasons of a woman’s life, sacred bleeding ceremony, womb healing, cord release and spiritual bathing assisting you in your transformation.
The workshop will include the following sacred teachings:What is a Sacred Woman?

- Women’s Moon-time Teachings

- Moon Cycles

Guided imagery is a gentle but powerful technique that focuses and directs the imagination in proactive, positive ways.
Research findings have demonstrated its positive impact on health, creativity and performance.
Even 10 minutes of imagery can reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol and glucose levels in the blood, and heighten short- term immune cell activity. It can reduce blood loss during surgery and morphine use after it. It lessens headaches and pain. It can increase skill at skiing, skating, tennis, writing, acting and singing; it accelerates weight loss and reduces anxiety; and it has been shown, again and again, to reduce the aversive effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, especially nausea, depression, soreness and fatigue. This 6 week program will help you become more peaceful, centered and grounded in your life.
Vivian Menjivar has been leading guided imagery groups since 1996. She learned these techniques while interning at NY Presbyterian Psychiatric Hospital, leading groups for depression and general wellbeing. She has been integrating guided imagery in her seminars and groups for Arvigo Self Care which focuses on Men’s and Women’s Reproductive Health and Intuitive Healing for opening your extended senses to experience life more fully.
