Goddess on the Go is a day long women’s spiritual workshop founded and hosted by Leora Edut. Her retreats are meant to bring together women so that they can not only connect with each other but to also connect with themselves. I had the pleasure of attending her Goddess on the Go event this summer and it was amazing. Taking place at Ramscale Studio in the West Village this event was filled with sisterhood, exploration, sexuality and bonding.
Leora created Goddess on the Go in 2012, after more than 10 years of self exploration in spirituality, energy work, transformational workshops, sisterhood, and relationships, Leora learned that the thing that truly made her happy was making a difference in the community of women. And that is something that you can tell the moment you walk in the door. I had heard about this workshop from a friend who had been previously and knew that I would love it, as I too am a lover of sisterhood and bonding. She was right. There is nothing I love more than to be in a room surrounded by women who are about not only lifting up themselves but others as well.
I didn’t know what to expect from the event when arriving, but the women were immediately welcoming and made me feel at home. It didn’t matter that I had just met them. I felt comfortable and that is so important when you’re attending events that alone. It made me wish my friends were there, not because I needed them to make the event better but because I knew they were about to miss out on something that was going to be beneficial to them.
Before the event got underway, there was mixing and mingling among guests and meeting the vendors that were on hand with products and services that were geared towards the theme of the event. When it was time for the workshop to begin Leora gave a moving speech about her humble beginnings and what happened in her life that lead her down the path that would ultimately lead her to create Goddess on the Go. The first exercise we took part in was tantric dance/yoga. I cannot tell a lie, it did feel awkward moving in such a way in front of a room full of strangers. But when you stopped thinking about it, it was easy to get into. The movements were not only designed to loosen us up but to allow us to tap into our inner sexual goddess. It’s okay to be sexy, have sex and to travel down other avenues to not only please your partner but yourself as well.
Next, we also learned about the importance of interrupting our dreams and how we can use them to pursue what it is we want in our lives. There was also a group dance, in which attendees formed a circle and danced, and the rest of us had to follow. I was praying that I would not get selected, as I cannot dance. I didn’t pray hard enough as I picked to dance. But when you’re in the circle its not about looking like an extra in ‘You Got Served’ but doing whatever comes to you at the moment and enjoying it. Afterward, was a lesson in nutrition and how we should start to not only savoring our food but being more cautious as to what we’re putting in our bodies. Which was the perfect segue to lunch. Delicious vegan meals were served. Following lunch we learned about our spirit guides and how we should follow the signs they give us so that we can become the person that we were meant to be and not just going through the motions. Sadly the time came for me to depart.
This was by far the most relaxing spiritually awakening event that I had ever been to. When I stepped outside I felt rejuvenated. I had renewed energy and focus in my life, both personally and professionally.
