Imagine a world in which ageing is not something to be feared or fought against, but welcomed.

A world in which the maturing and ripening woman is revered and celebrated for her beauty and wisdom, and where our changing bodies are a testament to the depth and richness of who we are. A world in which the incessant narrative and encouragement to reverse ageing becomes obsolete and where elders are given their rightful place again.

Imagine it’s up to us to create this world.

When Women Blossom: a New Story to Tell is an invitation for women over the age of 40 to come together and explore the topic of age: what it means to us in our current realities, and how we might support one another to positively and proactively shape this. 

What exactly are the dynamics behind our ageist cultural conditioning and how might I have internalised this? What are the ways in which I have suffered due to this, such as judging my appearance, doubting my value and comparing myself to others?

Making space for any grief or rage that arises, we ask ourselves what we are ready to let go of, so that we can create space for something new and life-affirming to take root and blossom.

Who am I beyond my conditioning? How do I want to feel? What new and empowered framings,  narratives and perspectives might we be inspired to create together? 

Through personal and shared enquiry, simple rituals and embodied practices we will create a field of playfulness, trust and curiosity where each woman is invited to reconnect with her blossoming, her individual essence and her gratitude and appreciation for her body. Bringing together our individual journeys and learnings, we will harvest our collective wisdom together and shape this new world, in which the beauty of the wisening woman is celebrated.

When Women Blossom is a rite of passage: a stepping into mature womanhood, letting our masks of perfection drop and just allowing ourselves to be with whatever is there: whether joy, sorrow, anger, shame or lust.

Iva & Ruby created a safe container for all this to unfold. Together they hold a lot of wisdom and knowledge that I bring with me, and look forward to put into practice in my life.

Ruby and Iva were the best possible facilitators:  a very tenderly held and well designed space, taking us on a pioneering journey to vision the second half of our lives.

Travelling back home, I felt like I was carrying a big treasure with me. My heart is full, I am inspired!

Iva Samina loves and lives sensuality, as well as a conscious, aware and satisfying sexuality. She loves accompanying people of all genders and ages into their true expression, passion and creative power. It is a heart commitment to make her contribution to a free sexual culture:  confidently, with humor and depth. 

Iva is driven by the inner call to follow her passion. She intends to empower herself and other women, as well as involve men in the (re)discovery of a new, strong femininity. To shine from within, and allow others to shine: that is the mission she dedicates her life and work to.

After many years of self-discovery – immersing herself in her own femininity, magic and authentic creativity – she founded a coaching practice for sexual development in Berlin. In this professional space, she weaves elements from Tantra, Tao, Womb Wisdom Sexological Bodywork, Yoga and the art-of-intuition. In addition, Iva works as a birth-preparer and doula. As a mother of 3, Iva sees birth as a sexual and spiritual process: she wants to pass on this knowledge, take away people’s fear of childbirth, and support them in experiencing childbirth as empowering.

Ich fühle mich genährt, erinnert, berührt, kraftvoll, bestätigt, gesehen, getragen, hingegeben, still und neugierig. Lustvoll, stolz, angebunden, erregt und weich. Schön!

Der Workshop war für mich eine große Freude.Im Nachhinein kommt mir ein Gefühl, welches an tiefes Ausatmen erinnert.

Ich hatte nicht nur die Freude eine reiche Ernte mit mir nach Hause tragen zu dürfen, sondern auch die Gewissheit, dass es mir im Kreise mutiger, wohlwollender Frauen möglich war (und in zukunft Möglich sein wird) meine innere Arbeit in voller Konzentration machen zu können. Ich muss nicht allein damit sein. Es geht anderen genauso.
