The Queen of My Self: a workshop with Mama Donna Henes, the urban shaman

The Queen of My Self: Stepping into Sovereignty in Midlife

An empowering workshop with Donna Henes

Based on her award-winning book from Monarch Press

Throngs of female Baby Boomers are now entering midlife. We are unique in history for our freedom, education, longevity and wealth. We hold positions of unheard of responsibility and stature. We are no longer Maidens, nor Mothers, and not yet old Crones. So where do we fit in the spectrum of women's lives? We are poised on the brink of a new, exciting, and as yet uncharted, stage of life. We are pumped and primed for personal sovereignty. Make way for the Queen —the new inspirational archetype for Women of Power. Come and join your spirit with other incredible, mature, accomplished women. Meet and celebrate the Queen in yourself as we share a spirited and profound mythological, philosophical and ritual exchange.

In a ceremonial counsel of encouragement and support, we will summon, name, and claim the wealth of our experience, our resources, and our best intentions. We will drum up the passions to fuel our potent midlife transition and chant for the persistence to maintain it. Our gathering will culminate with a Royal Coronation Ceremony wherein we will crown ourselves our own power and authority.

Turn your midlife crisis into your Crowning Achievement! The Queen is the earthly ruler of all Her domains. Preeminent, She is capable, accomplished, assured, respected, and in charge. Passionate and compassionate, She is an active woman of the world. The scope of Her natural abilities is vast and Her influence enormous. The Queen accepts and initiates personal response-ability for circumstances and conditions in ever-expanding circles. The chief dispenser of order, measure, justice, and right relationship in all realms, Her rule is informed by Her keen cosmic perspective as well as the heart-felt promptings of Her own intuition. She reigns supreme by virtue of Her great virtue. Today, just as the accumulative damage to our Earth is reaching a perilous point of no return and our entire natural and cultural environment is in the throes of dangerous disconnection and dis-ease, we Women of a Certain Age are called upon to ascend the throne of conscious and conscientious leadership and exercise our special Queenly powers to redeem and transform ourselves, our society and our planet.

Long live the queens! May we rule in a peaceful world!* As for age. If you feel like you are on the cusp of becoming the Queen of Your Self, then you are! We Queens have visions to create, projects to develop, communities to organize, a country to run, and a planet ot protect.
