Bringing Empowered Embodiment to Women all over the world.
HoneyRoot has been developing and presenting extraordinary programs for women of all ages for many years now. Our goal is to provide vital tools and formative experiences that welcome woman back into her fully embodied birthrights -- wisdom, power, relational sensitivity, and leadership.
After 5 years of gestation within our Summer Embodiment Retreats and our School for Embodied Leadership, we have now put together a potent selection of on-line courses available to women all over the globe.
Embodiment, Somatics, and The Feminine Soul is offered in a way that supports real growth from the ground up. It's simple, actually: experiential, body-oriented, heart-fueled education works. You can opt to design your own curriculum, as well. The main benefit of participating in the Embodiment, Somatics, and The Feminine Soul sequence is that each class builds on top of the next. We have designed this program to support whole-body integration. Additionally, there is a significant financial advantage: $250 savings.
We invite you to complement this program with additional electives (see below), all taught by exceptional facilitators focused on bringing you individualized, experiential learning. All of the courses we offer can be taken individually.

CORE Curriculum Course Descriptions:
Root: Building a Felt Sense of Safety, Security, and Belonging
August 17th - September 14th
Connecting to your root is foundational to any relationship. Whether with ourself, our friends, our partners, our children, our colleagues, or our community at large, feeling safe, secure, and connected is a crucial ingredient in creating and maintaining healthy relationships. In this course we will 1) inquire into what gets in our way of feeling safe, secure, and connected, 2) move into experiential exercises that provide us with a felt-sense of being rooted, up-held, and connected, and 3) share about our experience and dialogue with one another as we take our practices into our day-to-day lives. May all women feel relaxed in their own bodies, secure in their interactions, held by the earth, itself.

Alchemical Creativity: Making Art of Your Womb's Story
October 5th - November 2nd
As women, we are carriers. Whether is be unprocessed energy of past relationships, pregnancies, miscarriages, abortions, births, surgeries, or physical injury, our womb spaces can be left with a deep need to be held in safety, to tell its story, to be honored and revered for all it has experienced. This is where healing happens -- in the telling... in the being received. Come contribute to the conversations that so often go unspoken. Make art of your womb's story. Write, tell, draw, dance, tell, sing, paint, unwind and heal.

November 9th - December 14th (no class Nov. 23rd)
We are living in a dynamic time in human history which is calling for us to continue to grow our capacity for discernment and to set healthy boundaries. There are many aspects of our complex human lives where it is helpful for us to turn towards nature and animals to resource ourselves and from which we can source inspiration. Observing animals can show us how to re-engage our own innate animal body wisdom. The wisdom of our animal bodies can show us the pathway back to our core boundaries, our “yes's” and our “no's”, and our impulse to move towards or away. This wisdom paired with compassionate self reflection and heart centered, body based communication allows us to continue to refine how we utilize boundaries to shape and engage with all aspects of our lives.

Heart: The 7 Flavors of Love
January 4th - February 1st
There are different textures and qualities of love, and we all tend to be better skilled at some more than others. In this course, we will explore each of the 7 flavors of love and learn 7 different ways to connect with ourselves and others. We’ll understand how our expression of love gets constricted, blocked or distorted, and we will use embodied practices to restore the flow of love.
Because our capacity to love impacts all of our relationships - including family and friends, at work, with partners and within ourselves, The 7 Flavors of Love gives you access to the quality of connectedness that is relevant to each relationship. This course is designed to bring wisdom, clarity and compassion into everyday interactions and expand your capacity to love the people in your life whole-heartedly.

Additional Course Offerings/Electives:
September 27th - November 1st
In this unique and richly experiential 6 week course we will be exploring the deep and transformative journey of Menopause. For many of us - it is at this very real and biological shift that we 'KNOW' things are transforming and changing within and we seek a new vision for our lives. But our society is often unsupportive and it can feel impossible to step outside the cultural waters we swim in to create a new vision for our lives. You are on the 'threshold', and there are choices. I invite you to create a new vision of your journey: Menopause as a Rite of Passage. Menopause as Initiation into a wise woman life of wisdom, meaning and power.

Teens and Sex
February 14th - March 14th
Everyone knows that times are different now for teens than they were when we were young. The extreme pressures young girls face today only exacerbate the already challenging times of adolescence, especially when it comes to sexuality. What this calls for in us, as community, is not only to be up-to-date on what is happening via social media, porn, etc., but to also do a bit (or a lot) of our own sexual inventory so we can face sexual issues head on, with vulnerable honestly and ultimate freedom. This course will help mothers and role models create a potent & lasting connection with their teen, so they can support them to be safe & make informed and healthy sexual choices in their life (and it just may influence your own sex life as well!).

The Shadows of Sisterhood: Next Steps
Born into women bodies, our identification with both the feminine and masculine archetypal energies can be potent and transformative. Leaning too heavy into one side or the other, can lead us to relegate vital aspects of our being to the shadows of our unconscious. This can lead to things like competition, self-betrayal, rejection of other women, etc. Together, we will embark on an embodied mythopoetic exploration of our gender's shadows. Using the tools of somatic inquiry and creative reflection, we will slow down and drop into the deep well of wisdom that resides just beneath the surface of our everyday awareness.
Join us in reclaiming and re-membering that which is essential to our ongoing personal evolution-- our feminine-masculine nature, our ally-ship, our wholeness.
