The Goddess In Our Midst:
Woman's Belly Is Sacred, Not Shameful

Contemporary culture shames woman's belly. But in myth, ritual, and sacred image, woman's belly is a goddess. She personifies every woman's power to promote creation.

Through time and across the globe, many cultures have honored woman's belly as kin to the Power of Being that creates, sustains, and regenerates the world. Women on every continent have used dance, healing rites, and spiritual practice to develop and focus our pro-creative power.

In this interactive program, author Lisa Sarasohn will present The Woman's Belly Book as a guide to activating the source energy concentrated in our body's center.

Together, we'll cancel 5 misconceptions about woman's belly, discover 7 good reasons to love our bellies, honor the belly goddess, and learn the truth about the Holy Grail. (Fans of The DaVinci Code take note!)

Lisa Sarasohn draws on more than 20 years' experience guiding women to love our bodies and ourselves. Certified as a Kripalu Yoga instructor at the advanced level, she has created the Honoring Your Belly project and The Woman's Belly Book as ways to support women in claiming and cultivating our creative power.
