A Day of Deep Sensous Delight
I have a question for you—do you make time for everyone and
everything else? Your work, partner, kids, family, friends and community all come first and somehow you find yourself last on the priority list.
I've been asking the women in my life what I’m about to ask you:
What about you? What are your wishes & desires?
Do you know what you want? Do you know how to ask for it?
Are you in touch with the signals of your body?
Have you embraced self-care?
When was the last time you sensed real pleasure?
We women are oriented toward service and devotion, however, we can forget that the feminine thrives on beauty, attention and pleasure.
Deep within ourselves we know the female creature needs to be fed,
her senses must be tickled, her wishes spoken. This is an innate part of
who we are as women.
I know this story inside-out, as a woman who’s made it to the top of the fashion industry (which isn't known for its health and wellness) I was in service only to my career and my relationships, taking care of my family and supporting friends. I had starved myself of self care and attention to the point of depletion.
My rock-bottom was a life threatening depression—a terrifying experience. In order to heal myself I embarked on a journey of self discovery.
In the process I began acquiring skills in transformational technologies, healing my under-nourished body, overstimulated mind, armoured heart,
and deprived ‘sensual creature’.
It was a long and arduous path but the gifts I've gained are many,
most notably the many women who held my hand along the way, showing that it’s safe to feel good, that I can relax and trust my sisters.
There was no way I could have predicted that I’ll reclaim as much aliveness and vibrancy as I’ve since experienced. The flatline of emotion has shifted,
I am comfortable in who I am, my body feels good and I feel my body;
all which allow for true joy and deeper presence in my life and my relationships.
I know I’m not alone, this is the missing piece that so many of us are
waking up to right now.
For the past 7 years I have been sharing what I’ve learned on my healing journey through coaching, curated experiences and healing photoshoots.
I use many modalities in my work and I find that the part which gets neglected is what I refer to as your ‘ feminine creature’, it's your feminine somatic wisdom,
a part of us whose voice we're trained to block and so she becomes unpredictable and sometimes outrageous trying to get our attention.
However, once I learned to hear and feed Her
She became trustable and playful.
The most consistent and reliable way I found to connect to Her
is through the senses.
I’ve awakened my ‘feminine creature’ through sensual based practices
such as Ecstatic Dance, ‘dropping in’ with my sisters and creating self care practices that really nourish my body and soul. This is what works for me and we are all different. So now I am curious about YOU
and what your 'feminine creature' desires.
I want to take you by the hand and and show you what’s possible,
I want to invite you to come explore at:
This day-long, women designed and led event, is a 100% safe environment for you to get comfortable in your body, indulge your wishes and desires,
relax into self care and lean into pleasure
But how do you do it? How do you just … Indulge?
To help guide us into our feminine essence, my friend, coach and feminine leader, Ashley Apple, will teach us how to connect to our female animal and drop into our senses. Ashley has been teaching embodiment, sensual wisdom and feminine empowerment for 19 years. She will take us on a beautiful journey into our heart, body and senses to help us connect to our somatic feminine wisdom. To activate your relationship with pleasure and embodying your sexual power, Ashley will be your guide as we journey into the heart, body and senses.
The Flow of the Day
We’ll spend sometime getting to know one another and creating a safe container for the day, so please arrive around 10 am, settle in, enjoy a hot beverage while you change into something that brings you joy and delight and makes you feel comfortable and sensuous.
Ashley Apple will lead you in an exploration of your sensual self,
activating your sexual power and turning on your radiance.
Learn how to trust your intuition, your desires, your YES!
Ashley will introduce simple exercises, meditations, movement and breathwork that cultivate your feminine essence. This is an opportunity to indulge
your senses and explore a new paradigm of what an embodied,
pleasure filled woman looks like. Learn how to express your feminine power with confidence and pleasure and still find success in work, family and
home life. Ashley uses the magic of the group energy to initiate
life changing perceptions and activate your feminine essence within
a safe circle of sisterhood.
We’ll break for a delicious organic lunch—vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free options will be available. During lunch you are welcome to relax by the pool or in the garden, dropping-in with dear friends, old and new, leisurely digesting and integrating the morning’s journey.
We will continue to indulge in an inner and outer spa experience. This is an opportunity for you to ask your sensual ‘feminine creature’
"What do you want? What will delight you?"
We will have self care posts set up that will include a massage table & oils, hair washing, scrubs, facial masks and more, as well as guided inquiry so we can deepen our relationship with our sisters and ourselves.
Throughout the afternoon, we will offer more luscious snacks, elixirs and beverages. You may enjoy the solar heated saltwater swimming pool,
the hot tub, the gardens and the joy of being with sisters
in the beauty that’s all around us.
After this you will have the option to take it up a notch and put what you've learned into practice if you are up to it. I've arranged for a few man
who are trained in relating to women—not by treating you as a sexual object but by being of service to the feminine, by listening and appreciating you
for who you are.
I’ve carefully curated and invited these men to attentively and expertly serve you. This afternoon, you can be tended to by the masculine and practice
asking for your wishes.
The attendants will offer an array of non-sexual experiences
including foot rubs, hair washing, serving delicious refreshments to your specific request, cooling you with scented water and if it’s your jam,
whispering poetry in your ear. Each man will have a menu of services he can provide and YOU get to ask yourself: "What do I want?"
The energy will be sweet, sensuous and respectful, these men have one wish
and that is to ensure you have a wonderfully indulgent day.
If you rather not engage with the men that's no problem!
You can continue to hang out with the ladies.
What are the men trained in?
These divine masculine creatures have been devoting their lives
to the art of being in service to the feminine. They are trained in being able to put their focused attention on the feminine and fulfilling her desires.
We invite your sensuous 'feminine creature' to come play and
explore her wishes.
Will you give yourself this day to indulge?
If the answer is "Yes!" we invite you to bring one or two girlfriends along
to indulge together. When do we have the time to drop in with our equally busy sisters? Enroll a girlfriend in an experience that will feed and nourish you both. Let’s stand for each other’s wellness!
"Indulge is the most enlivening, sensory delighting, trust building, empowering event I've ever experienced. This year will be my FOURTH time. It's the not-to-be-missed sacred event to kindle your capacity to receive so that you can go back out into the world and give from a place of surplus. It's so exquisite. Don't overthink it, just say YES. Your heart, your mind, your body, your soul will bow at your feet and say thank you." ~Stacey Morgenstern
“It was an honor and a privilege for me to serve the women. Watching the women take in the care and pleasure was deeply satisfying, healing and fun. Providing and serving gave me a real sense of being a Man!” ~Gregory Kellett
"It's a precious opportunity to be deeply seen, adored and nourished by men who truly know how to serve the feminine with their profound presence and respect. I felt safe and deeply held in this garden of delights!" ~Sige Wiseman
“I'll admit, I was a bit nervous at first but it was a true pleasure! And a practice in relaxing and receiving. I felt comfortable, respected and uniquely cared for. When I expressed a desire whether for food, drink or in my case, a little quiet space to meditate and help me get grounded, it was offered freely and with support. I learned how to surrender to being taken care of and I was guided in a new meditation that was so helpful in having me "land" with the group, which I later used with my partner and he really enjoyed.” ~Rebecca J
“I have truly enjoyed serving at these events. The men who serve at these events create a strong bond of brotherhood in which we support and teach each other how to be of service. There is nothing a man wants more than to experience a woman in her pleasure—and being the source of that pleasure has instilled in me a quiet confidence and glow of assurance. I am appreciated and revered for my masculine essence and my attentive affection. Every man should be so lucky! “~David Niebauer
“The event was expertly crafted and facilitated. From the opening circle to the closing, the different stations and areas to hang, to engage with, to experience, left me feeling like anywhere I flowed, there I was supposed to be. All my senses were stimulated with beauty and yet it was not overwhelming at all. It seemed like a sacred place where healing could happen between women and sisters, and between the feminine and masculine.”
“It's in our genes, as women, to take care of others often at the expense of our own well being. I know so many women who put others needs ahead of their own often leaving them feeling depleted. So I'm a great, big YES to a day dedicated to our pleasure. The relaxed flow and setting allowed my system to open to receiving nourishment and healing largely as a result of being served by the masculine. The men were so sweet and delighted to be of service to us. Whether it was lounging with women having deep conversations or laughing so hard our bellies hurt, it's a day I look forward all year.” ~Dana Muscatello
“Filled up. Nourished. Honored. Cared for. Empowered. Embodied. Radiant. Yummy. Delighted. Sensually uplifted. Serene. Grateful.” ~ Julia Alison
Kim's life has been an international journey of self discovery and healing. Born on a kibbutz in Israel to a British mother and an Israeli father, her childhood was unconventional.
Wanting to experience the world as soon as she completed her mandatory 2 year army service, Kim moved to Milan, Paris, then NY to start her modeling career. For the most part of her 12 year career she was a top runway, editorial, and advertising model appearing in Vogue, Marie Claire, and Elle. During this time she worked with the most talented A-list designers and photographers in the world.
But even with all the money, fame and fun; her soul felt progressively more bankrupt until finally a life threatening, multi-year-long depression set in, which was further aggravated by the loss of her sister and 3 late term pregnancies.
In service of saving her life, Kim left her modeling career and began a full time spiritual healing quest that would last the better part of 8 years.
Her journey included months at Plum Village with Mindful Meditation master Thich Nhat Hanh. Two years living and practicing and teaching Kundalini Yoga in an ashram in San Francisco. Ayurvedic medicine trainings, as well as years of NLP, EFT, life coaching and NVC training and teaching. Working with plant medicine in Peru was also a key part of her transformation.
Today Kim uses what she’s learned during her dark night of the soul to develop innovative new methods that help others on their journey of healing and awakening. She leverages her experience as a fashion model and training in NLP and EFT to lead women through a process that reconnects them with their inner radiance, self worth and love.
