Women & The World

With a rising global conflicts, women have new challenges as they live from day-to-day. Men endeavor as better role models than their predecessors. Young adults must navigate an often confusing landscape of gender roles and relationships.

GODDESS RISING is part of a huge network of organizations which are dedicated to raising the status of women. While there are a variety of perspectives on the gender gap in many societies throughout the world, statistics show that women have a ways to go before they can enjoy relative safety in their neighborhoods, respect in their homes, and equal pay in the workplace.

Our GODDESS RISING organization is managed through the HONORING the FEMININE Foundation, dedicated to helping families everywhere with personal growth programs geared toward emotional intelligence education and sustainable relationships, using social skills studies.

Over the last 20 years, we have been providing dating and relationship advice, launching global campaigns to educate families and individuals about the benefits of honoring the feminine. By treating women and girls with more respect, everyone benefits. Many imagine going from one extreme to another, but we suggest finding a balance between the needs of men and those women and children.

Consciously co-creating more sustainable societies results in more peaceful & prosperous communities for everyone’s benefit. A society which educates its people and care for its health enjoys a more vibrant quality of life. Each member of a village or town can contribute something to improve the well-being of every population. Inspiring others, improving governmental agencies, and building consensus results in more a innovative and peaceful  world.

How would you like to help make this world safer for women to live the lives they choose?

Summer 2016 Update

Path to the Beloved Art by Dorina Costras

Greeting Beloveds!

We are now up to almost 200 members on Ning! On Facebook, we have many more. This group gives us more dedicated online space to cultivate our conversations and learn how to further this romantic paradigm & lifestyle that celebrate the sacred, mystical feminine wisdom which nourishes the heart & soul as we innovate Love in the 21st Century. On this PATH to the BELOVED, we must first find our inner divinity. From there, we can more clearly see That in others. As we explore our soul’s essence, we learn to better articulate our needs and wants in a heart-based way. This nurtures our fulfillment in Love.

As we progress on this Path, we discover the many options for Ecstatic Lifestyles. Some of us celebrating the rising feminine in our lives still crave masculine leadership, some prefer more feminine leadership, and others want both, in varying proportions.

Keep exploring! Life is change. Evolution happens as innovative necessities. As we continue exploring, we do our shadow work to dissolve the old wounds, and make room for our birthright of Bliss. Sometimes, we need to first grow as individuals before we can successfully attract & keep our Life Mate. Everyone is different. Your path is your path!

Some enjoy exploring their shadow healing with power play. This can be a dedicated FLR or MLR or switch between the two. As we grow more comfortable with more joyful lives, we discover the sublime found as Angels Rising. As a community of conscious, heart-based men and women, we are pioneers in this realm of loving relationships.

During this last year, I’ve taken a sabbatical to go within and process the transition of my Beloved Mother, who taught me so much about FLR Tantra, though she would never have called it that.

Now I’m back to further this work in the world.

The Sacred Feminine is a most precious gift to our ever-evolving world. We are the expanding Universe, as we innovate choices & options in our lives, given the desires and insights which arise through our daily lives.

I’m eager to hear from you again, to hear your ideas, your challenges, and learn what’s been working for you in the area of your interpersonal romantic relationships, with regards to “Honoring the Feminine”.

As you may know, GODDESS RISING is not only Female Led Relationships, but a fundamental desire to Honor the Sacred Feminine in each and every human being: the yin essence which deepens our compassion, forgiveness, and tenderness, as well as the feisty, primal, sensuous shakti essence which dances so effortlessly with the kundalini energy.

This group is a forum for singles and couples, men and women, who want to learn more about the divine in us all, through the sacred feminine, evolving masculine, and the social, sustainable innovations resulting from our pioneering work.

Please take some time to reflect on your relationship history, your heart’s desires moving forward, and how you can be best supported on your journey. We are planning live retreats in major cities which are closest to the largest GODDESS RISING members. Let us know your preferences for topics, formats, and such as we send out surveys to help us help you!

Meanwhile, enjoy these last precious weeks of Summer and prepare for the deeper meditations which loom on the horizon.

Together we are making this world a better place. Our mission is to help men become their best S’elves, while honoring women to become ecstatic, mystical, & luminous Goddesses.

Each couple must learn to cultivate agreements based on their respective values & understanding. We are here to help with that. Whether you are leaning toward female-led, male-led, or 50-50 models of romantic relationships, we have the resources to help you navigate this circuitous Path to the Beloved.

All roads lead to OM!

Honoring the Sacred Feminine & the Divine Masculine brings Joy, Sanity, and stronger families and communities to our world.

Blessed Be Forever!

What is Goddess Worship?

Female-Led Relationships

What is Goddess Worship?

 

There’s quite a bit of hush-hush talk about “female-led relationships”.  Few seem to relax enough with the conversation to make much progress.  My guess is that women are both hard-wired & socially allowed to be more intuitive in a relationship than a man.  Conversely, men are both designed & encouraged to be more linear in accomplishing goals & producing certain tangible results. Men who are powerful in the world & submissive in love have much to say when they feel safe enough to say it.  Worldly riches only gain a man so much.  Love is eternal…

Goddess Rising sees men strong enough to be humble enough to serve the needs of the feminine in a manner which cherishes her sacred vision.

Goddess Rising recognizes that men continue to suffer in their misguided treatment of women.

Goddess Rising is the evolving practice of contemporary goddess worship which uplifts both men & women to their full potential as humans reaching nirvana.

Goddess Rising means letting go of oppressive dogma.

Goddess Rising uses the term “goddess worship” to stir the archaic sexism which needs to be released, allowing feminine liberation from limiting beliefs.

Goddess Rising & know that the children & elders, the animals & plants, who rely upon the enlightened leadership of the rest of us, shall be cared for.

To balance the power on the planet, we all need to respect & honor & serve the needs of the feminine more.

With women around the world needing allies to just walk the streets safely, this group wants to promote the idea of respectfully adoring & serving women to their highest feminine & female potential…that of an enlightened Goddess, a divine Angel, a beloved Princess, or however she longs to be adored.

Honoring the Sacred Feminine & Masculine

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
— Marilyn Monroe

“A woman’s highest calling is to lead a man to his soul, so as to unite him with Source; her lowest calling is to seduce, separating man from soul and leave him aimlessly wandering. A man’s highest calling is to protect woman, so she is free to walk the earth unharmed. Man’s lowest calling is to ambush and force his way into the life of a woman.”
— Cherokee Proverb ♥

The Emerging Goddess Journey is a magical voyage which will elevate your consciousness, soothe your mind, relax your body, warm your heart, and make your soul sparkle! It will improve your relationships and support all of your heart-felt dreams coming true as you align with the highest vibration of the Infinite Love which sustains us all…

When a woman meets a man who is more grounded than she is… she can let go into her femininity and relax… provided he’s kind & caring. This is an amazing experience for a woman, albeit rare on planet Earth. Still it does happen… and is worth waiting for.

A man who is more concerned about a woman’s comfort & pleasure than his own will surely be a man who will be capable of nurturing her spirit to expand into the bliss that is her Birthright.  Women’s sexual responses are so much more complex than a man’s…and I am sure there is a deep, underlying purpose for this.

When a woman has to relax deeply enough to feel safe enough to allow her bliss to expand for hours, she needs a certain caliber of man to provide this level of safety which for most men is too tedious or time-consuming for them to enjoy.  To dissolve the layers of societal disinformation takes time & practice.  Men who are noble enough to explore this discover they become very powerful & virile as a result of being this self-less.  As we surrender ourselves to the Divine, we are found.

I wish this for you all.

Namaste forever.

Honoring the Feminine: Think Globally & Act Locally

There are volumes of books written to describe the historical & contemporary effects of sexism, with growing interest in internalized sexism.  Everyday there are countless causes to consider, if you have a moment to do so.  This blog is meant to cover both sociological insights as well as relationship skills which focus on the male-female dynamics attributed to romantic love.  Underlying most divorce cases, one could argue, is a fundamental flaw in each spouse’s expectations of their significant other.  One piece of this is aptly described by Dr. Oz, the regular guest on Oprah’s show, when he says men marry a woman and 20 years later wonders where she went, while women marry a man & 20 years hence wonders why he’s still the same man!

Women have a voracious appetite for love & affection which wants to be given in a loving context of virtue, honor, & joy, with regular doses of tenderness.  Men need their frequent sojourns to their favorite cave to still their minds.  Conscious relationships involve self-aware men & women who can articulate & negotiate what they each want & need.  In contemporary, freedom-oriented societies, there is a tendency to give women more say in the terms of engagement under which she will interact with any given man.  This new trend promises lots of surprises, as well as trial & error!  What men are discovering is a type of dharma yoga experience as they begin to honor women more, exploring chivalry, & eventually surrendering to their goddess’ wishes.  But for a man to flow with a woman, he must be very centered & clear on his mission, or else, the feminine chaos will overwhelm him, rather than amuse him.

These ideas are described in detail by author, David Deida.  The sociological changes of the last 50 years might be summed up by saying, From time immemorial, it was Neaderthal meets Barbie.  Then, with the sexual revolution of the 1960s, please note Uranus conjunct Pluto during that decade, women realized they needed to learn economic intelligence for their personal growth while men saw the importance of emotional intelligence.  Interestingly, that led to an impetus to go full circle, while spiraling upward.  Men now want to reclaim their masculine essence but evolve beyond the Neaderthal or Barbaric tendencies & women long to relax into their radiant feminine energy to give & receive love in more meaningful ways.

We are here at a turning point where female-led relationships are providing men & women with more opportunities for emotional intimacy & enduring happiness.  When men are powerful in their domain, they seem to long to surrender to the sacred feminine.  I imagine it’s because they feel balance by feminine energies after they’ve slayed a few dragons in their domain.  The world becomes a better place when priorities are made for more humane ways of living.  For some the path of the feminine is dubious at best.  But ask yourself, Would our planet, our children, & our elders be suffering the way they are if women’s concerns were addressed by local authorities?  Let’s empower women to expand their vision of life while we invite men to bring their deepest presence to each moment with their goddess.

Love your woman, save the planet!

My conceptual model is getting clearer. I’m doing major research on how honoring the feminine helps the planet. Our society, no, world, is evolving 2B allies for women. We’re all Gaia!

I’ve been fantasizing about the next edition of husband & boyfriend training manuals to be the Lysistrata of modern day, except that NOW sexual favors will only be given in accordance with the Domina’s preferences. A modern day Goddess has learned to demonstrate leadership through how she inspires her man to take up the mission of healing the Planet. Crack that whip, Baby! This is what is needed today…and I dare say, tomorrow too. W/we make choices everyday. Every moment.
