Femtheogenisis is a compound of the word made up of feminine and entheogens. Entheogens is made of the words entheo and genesis. It refers to the mystical and sacred properties of the psychedelic experience. Femtheogens, through its roots in entheogens, refers to the feminized sacredness of the experiences such substances can induce. Femtheogens is as much a word as it is a concept. It refers to the capacity of entheogenic experiences to revive the broken Sacred Feminine and filter its essence to us. This capacity is enhanced by the strong connections between the archetypal feminine and the entheogenic experience. The two share qualities that can heal, transform, and support the expansion of our consciousness. These qualities are also major points of suppression for both, as they run counter to our Western mind-set and emergent social paradigms. ~Maria Papaspyrou “Psychedelic Mysteries of the Feminine”.
~When a woman is fully engaged with the intuitive wisdom of her womb body, it’s subtle and often sub-perceptual messages, her life and all of life around her restores to balance and natural laws of reciprocity.
The Womb Body expresses as a physical manifestation in the pelvic bowl, as an energetic manifestation in overall health, vitality and creative expression and spiritual manifestation in deep peace within heart and mind. The Womb is also an archetypal body that lives within and around all living beings.
Everything, every human, has a womb body or feminine body. Women have greater access to the mastery and mystery of the Womb Body as the birthers, life givers, water bearers.
The Womb Body holds the codes of Sacred Law. These laws, and therefore the creations, wisdoms and guidance of the Womb Body are Life inclusive. The wisdom of the Womb Body supports the full expression of every soul’s innate gift and the abundance for every life to bring that gift alive. Sacred reciprocity is our birthright and it relies on the feminine body to be in balance for all to thrive in this reciprocity.
When the choice points in a woman’s life are made in alignment with the wisdom of her womb, her life and all of life re-balances to this regenerative, reciprocal abundance and vitality. She is nourished and fed by the Well of Life. Never is she depleted.
As this collective re- alignment happens in each woman, a Universal re-alignment follows and the First Song of Gaia is resurrected. Her Voice restored.
Following the wisdom of the Womb Body is allowing oneself to listen to the deep and often oppressed hunch in the deep heart. It is allowing the ever present whisper to rise as the guide. It is reclaiming the intuitive body as the most precisely tuned compass. This intuition is often felt and known on a level within the psyche that has no, or few, words. There is never much story, just clear direction. This direction is often counter to current corrupted culture and may feel very foreign at first.
The Womb Body is ageless always ripening. It is never too late to reclaim the wisdom of the body, the feminine body, the womb. And it is necessary for harmony in all Life.
True power of the womb body is the resurrection of the inner healer. A woman who heals herself heals all of life because the elements of healing are life inclusive- based in unconditional love -and there is no power stronger.
The womb body is where the story keeper lives, the crone mother, the grandmother, the medicine woman, the mother, the initiate, the priestess, the lover, the wise woman, the prayer and the song circle. It’s innate gift is connection to Her, the mysteries of life and the bounty of wisdom and medicine that is your birthright.
In order to walk this path back towards wisdom it is imperative to cultivate daily practices and supportive connections for when the wobbling nervous system flares as you begin to make new choices opposite of conditioned patterns. Repatterning is a birthright. Your inherent blueprint is a birthright. Overriding the false identities takes devotion, tenderness and guidance from sources that have walked the deep feminine path.
The Mentor/Mentee relationship is ages old. Women’s circles are the pillars for this support and reflection. When one woman braves to take a step back towards herself, she opens the path for all women and we all heal. Every Womb is born of the First Flame and fed by the incorruptible Well of Abundance- we are all connected by way of the Womb Body.~
This online mentorship circle is an intimate 3 month immersion into the innate wisdom and power of the feminine womb body through femtheogenic states of consciousness. I am bringing together many of the tools of the medicine woman basket for deep, integrated, embodied feminine wisdom.
You will learn maya womb massage for lifelong womb health and body awareness that every woman should know. Prayer, femtheogenic breathwork, oracular presence, ritual arts and daily practices will aid in the resurrection of womb consciousness all while microdosing magic mushrooms. It’s a packed immersion. It is a three month ceremony.
Our magic medicine allies all contain the same womb consciousness that lives within our bodies. The medicine will ally your ability to differentiate true innate intuitive wisdom from the societal programming that has purposefully blocked this wisdom. Psychedelic medicines are intimately intertwined with deep feminine embodiment, creativity, unity consciousnes and ecstasy- you know, everything that patriarchy has tried to destroy.
You will learn how to microdose and potentially support others in this process if you want to dive deeper with me.
A woman’s circle is a living and breathing thing. Receiving mentorship and mirroring in an intimate group setting with other women, you receive healing and support that is not possible without community. Although there is an outline for our journey and I am tending the fire, it is the circle itself that holds the wisdom and feeds the flame. Together we reclaim our sisterhood and leadership without hierarchy. We will be in practice with the emergent nature of our bodies and moment to moment subtle, and not so subtle, shifts. All of you is welcome.
Life is in the hands of the women. Within our wombs lives an oath we took to steward life. We are the architects of a Universal love story, the gatekeepers of birth, death and resurrection. Women have a tremendous impact on which story the next generations inherit.
When you are brought back into balance and belonging through your intuitive sensibilities and your ability to listen to the deeper and incorruptible currents of life, you become a relic of womb consciousness for your life, your community and the Earth.
This is a trauma aware space. I have worked with trauma personally and with clients for a decade and one thing holds true- the wound attracts the medicine.
The container will be held by the tenets of natural Sacred Law and prayer. Prayer is a foundation for entering states of sovereign communion and expanded Universal gratitude, and therefore support. You will learn the architecture of prayer and laws of reciprocity. You will be asked to cultivate your own prayer practice and share your prayer with the circle.
This is essentially in immersion into the priestess path. Owning our oath to its core is a choice as we have free will. However, in order to experience true abundance and radicalized systems of worth and prosperity alignment to the womb/priestess codes and remembering your oath is paramount.
Microdosing psychedelics and entheogenic plant medicines, when engaged with properly, is a gateway to a holistic lifestyle of belonging to more than the human realms of life. Microdosing holds the great potential to repattern and expand communication pathways within our own biology and between ourselves and the living breathing Earth. Unlike a large therapeutic dose of entheogenic medicine which induces a full altered state of perception, microdosing works in a sub-perceptual, homeopathic way over time- slow medicine. Microdosing is an amazing way for the nervous system to prepare itself for a larger, ceremonial experience.
This approach is integrative and sustainable as it engages the individual in understanding the enormous, positive impact on the nervous system of subtle changes over time. Microdosing has been used for various physical and spiritual ailments, enhanced creativity and mental clarity and has been proven to be very beneficial in cases of long held trauma.
When approached with reverence and awareness of the relationship between the person ingesting and the medicinal gift in their hands, great life transformations can ensue. Every living being is wired to be in communion with their natural environment in a healing and reciprocal way. Microdosing plant entheogens can help reawaken the remembrance of that relational gift. – Shira Stardrift on behalf of the Port Townsend Psychedelic Society
All other embodiment practices are direct channels to communion with self as this is the first, most true and wise source.
Our journey will be broken down into three focused months~ These months will land in the Summer and therefore we will be fueling our healing with the energy of WHAT ARE YOU HARVESTING from your womb, your life, your story?
Month 1- Connection with the sacred corporeal womb body. Connection and intimacy with self. The cliche is unfortunately under tried but true-that your healing is all that matters. When you heal and have a deep embodied connection with your first love, your life- you then begin to mend the broken healing model and the mother wound of depletion, over giving, and martyrdom. Repattering old stories into love stories so that you fall in love with every moment of your life is the “reward” if there was one to claim. This communion with self is foundational for communing with any other aspect of your life. There are many ways women have been indoctrinated by society’s oppressions so that they become susceptible to corrupted misinformation and/or severe lack of information about their body’s wisdom. The first major corruption is the disconnect from even understanding- and trusting- how our bodies function. So, we begin with the corporeal self and the corporeal womb with hands on self healing techniques such as womb massage following the Maya Womb Healing lineage I am initiated into, and anointing. These simple and ancient practices of servicing the body as a vessel of wisdom can shift generations of disconnection from our wisdom as women.
Monthly Practice- womb massage.
Month 2– Aligning heart and womb. When there is depletion from over giving, the heart is not in alignment with the direction and power of the womb; the womb body is offline and out of balance. When the creative energy/second chakra has been over or mis- cultivated and the outward expressions are not life inclusive, then the feminine energy has not been healed and wielded in a way that includes love at its center- which is true power. Or, corrupted desire is at play and looks like reaching out for and/or creating things that are once again, not life inclusive, not based in love. When there is harm anywhere, there is harm everywhere, and that harm begins on the inside- projected to the outside. In our modern life, we unfortunately live with hypocrisies that defy our hearts and create harm everyday. We have choice. Harm reduction happens naturally when the heart and womb are aligned.
Practice – Breathwork and breathwork ceremony!
DAY LONG RETREAT: To deepen into the sensual and subtle essence of the feminine body we will be preparing ourselves for a day of fasting and ceremony together. You will need to plan ahead so that you know you will be uninterrupted for a whole day with plenty of time to integrate the following day. We will be going into deep embodiment practices of prayer, meditation and then a full breath work ceremony followed by channeled writing and sharing from the oracular space that was just opened. The microdosing will support this so we will make sure that whichever microdose schedule you choose, this day aligns with taking the medicine. You will be fully prepped. I will be vetting those who sign up for this course as the healing will open up the nervous system to states of expanded perception and there are contraindications. Safety first. Slow medicine most of the time- is the best medicine. And although this day will be highly potent it will be woven with trauma awareness and practices that cultivate the inner healer, integration and slow medicine.
SPECIAL GUEST TEACHER~ Leah Barsher will be joining us in our ceremonial immersion to guide us through embodiment and breathwork practices that help us understand our threshold of tolerance and where old patterns weave and live in our nervous system and womb bodies. Leah’s gifts are pure and heart centered. She is the embodiment of womb and heart centered breath.
Month 3- Oracular presence and the third thing. This is tantric union. What is birthing forth from the integration of heart and womb in alignment with wisdom? This is communion with self in action. The external mirroring the internal. Here we begin to really learn how to hear and listen to the wisdom upwelling from this deep inherited well of truth. We will begin to create new feedback loops of trust in another, and trust in the original blueprint of support as we share ”what we know”. You know something- here is a safe place to pray it, sing it and say it into being. Receptivity is power when wielded with embodied intuitive knowing and boundaries. We will begin to practice and integrate how the softening, receptive quality of the feminine body is love in action for all beings. If you are a healer (we are all healers) this is the crucible of forging true embodied transmission that does so much more with less effort. You are a healing force when you embody, transmit, live and share fro
Practice- Meditative listening. Oracular writing/channeling. In our final group session each woman will share her prayer, her prophecy, her oracular transmission.

By the end you will:
Have an embodied understanding of the intuitive womb body and its connection to all living things. How to wield true power based in love. Alignment with the Sacred Laws of Reciprocity. A basketful of practices for a life of loving connection to your womb body. An understanding of microdosing psychedelics and the role of the feminine in entheogens through lived experience (this is a forever process of learning). The foundations for holding and tending a circle. A prayer practice. A compass for group consciousness. Lots and lots of self love for gifting yourself this journey.
Who this is for:
Before I enter deep therapeutic states of consciousness with anyone I ask them if they are truly ready to have their life shift, maybe even entirely change, as they know it. This is very important to understand, and there is no judgement if you are not clearly ready for this kind of transformation. To engage prematurely in a path that disrupts the holding patterns of your life, can retraumatize and create more forms of resistance. It is a kindness to yourself and the medicine to know where you are. With that said, I am only opening this container for those willing to do the work.
This journey is for women of all ages and I prefer a diverse group of wisdoms. The womb is an energy to engage at every stage of life, it never leaves, it never dies within us. The practices are timeless and ageless. Since this is a “therapeutic” setting for healing, it is for the woman who wants to cultivate tremendous self intimacy and begin to understand how to share her own innate gifts and better meet the ever shifting demands of this life- with love and power. You do not need to know “the language”, or you can be fully steeped in the language here, for you to join. You will be fed and you will meet what is ready to emerge from you wherever you are on your journey.
Who this is not for:
If you have a history of psychosis or bipolar disorder you must proceed with extreme caution and I will only consider your participation with consent from a medical professional. If you are on anti- psychotic medications I will ask the same. However, there has been positive feedback from research done on individuals taking SSRIs while microdosing medicinal mushrooms and I have supported many through the process of healing from SSRIs with psilocybin. We can have a conversation about this as the research is still new.
Disclaimers and Guidelines:
This is a highly confidential space. Because most entheogenic plant and psychedelic medicines are illegal in most states and countries world wide, it is paramount that we do not exchange the names of each other or of other practitioners or individuals who work with or provide such medicines outside of the circle, and when we share resources.
Before we begin you will also electronically sign an agreement that upholds right relationship when being in a group setting. There are specific communication guidelines that support the safety and full trust of the space. We want everyone to feel they can open and expand to the edge of their desire.
You take full responsibility for your journey here. I am not a licensed mental health professional or medical doctor. If you are joining it is because you have been invited in, vetted and made a commitment to steward your own healing. Due to the very sensitive nature of what we will be diving into, you must be present to each meeting to fully support the process for each woman tending this circle. This is vital. And there are emergencies.
There will not be any recordings shared due to the sensitive nature of our work together and to uphold the practice of indigenous traditions where wisdom was passed through word of mouth- never recorded. You must download the Signal app to participate as this is how I will send messages and Zoom links.
This is not a microdose training to support others, or a training on how to hold people through the deep initiations that entheogenic medicine can provide. However, it is a beginning, and you will have a good base of understanding how trauma moves in the collective body through your own healing and becoming an antenna for clear intuitive knowing of what is emergent in the space with you and another. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO HOLD A CIRCLE AFTER THIS COURSE WITH AN ANCHOR TO YOUR MEDICINE AND GIFT.
The wisdom transmitted here is to be tended and shared by you in the way that upholds integrity (we will discuss). The sensitive nature of the Womb massage alone has many nuances and contraindications. ALL of these practices are for you only. And, I have no control over how you move about your life- it is between you and the Goddess.
Please only share this document with permission. You may invite others but we must be discerning as to who is ready and can uphold confidence. I am only asking for 13 women at a time to keep the intimacy.
This is the beginning of a path, or the fortifying of the path you are already on. This is a ceremonial space and will be tended as such.
The moment you say yes, there will be a shift in your life.
If this is a YES for you- if you are one of the 13 women joining this circle, your exchange initiates your ceremony. $999 for the total package. $777 without individual mentoring.

There are no refunds once we begin unless the course is canceled. I offer limited scholarships for those who are truly in need- really sit with this if you feel like this is you because sometimes we think we need it because we are afraid to invest and unlock a full potential of what happens with full investment. There are some amendments to some the scholarships. Talk to me.
So much love for you. This will be deep. Welcome..
