The Goddess Way
With Charlotte L. Cressey
The Goddess Way Teachings are the modern woman's approach to integrating ancient Goddess wisdom to improve your life and be all that you can be.
A way of relating to yourself that uplevels your whole life.
Learn the ineffable calm of a self-assured woman. She is a Queen and you can feel it. She is powerful and magnetic.
"Learned selfishness." As women, we are conditioned to put our attention on everyone else. This is the time to learn to live from the inside out: self-defined, self-referenced, and self-directed. You have to unlearn the unevolved selflessness that exhausts us and exploits the caring feminine nature. Yes, tend to the needs of the world. But, put your wellbeing first, always.
Know that you are the director of your destiny. Outside circumstances do not define you - you do.
Work with Goddess archetypes to amplify your unique femininity.
Self-care comes first. Let's redefine what it means to be selfish. Women have been trained to put others first at the expense of our own well-being. To be selfish is to give the luxury of thought to your own self (Jen Duchene). Due to internal, subconscious patterns, putting yourself and your health first can be hard to actually implement. But, for women who learn to put themselves first, life becomes much easier and graceful.
The Beauty Path.
Re-defining Beauty. Beauty is something to experience. Beauty takes many forms. Instead of feeling yourself as something to look at and judged, you learn to create beauty, live beauty, and see beauty in all things. The Goddesses can aid you in reclaiming beauty as yours.
