Jaguar:Wholeness in Fractured Times
A Real World Understanding of the Nervous System and Feminine Sexuality
This crisis has continued far longer than any of us anticipated.
We may not even agree on what that crisis is.
What we probably can agree on is that things are coming apart at the seams in ways that none of us expected, and most of us don’t have much practice in tending to.
It seems that the center cannot and will not hold.
How will we reach hands across the divides as the fissures widen?
Virgin means wholeness- a woman who is whole unto herself. Complete.
Virgin is perhaps as much a starting point, an untouched place as it is an earned achievement.
In the midst of tearing and torn seams, we would do well to turn to our connections to the Earth and to Spirit, to the practices of fortification and restoration inside the cave, to the practice of tending to our wholeness.
Where do you get your strength from when it seems like you can’t go any farther?
From a deeper reservoir of life force that is infinite.
Feminine sexuality has always been a conduit for that infinite exchange between Earth and Source.
✨ Are you shut down to the juicy, delightful parts of yourself?
✨ Do you feel that nothing you do is enough?
✨ Is the thought of having to do anything else at all right now overwhelming and maybe even disgusting?
No one of us can solve any of the problems at hand alone.
Even if we do our part, and more, it will never be enough.
We need to work together to amplify our power.
We need community and leadership.
We need to become more and more known to ourselves and the truest expression of ourselves that is also life generating.
Trading pleasure for righteousness will only go so far.
We will get sick, desperate, and worn down.
WE ARE THE ONES who need to be the steady drum beat of sober awareness.
Sexuality is the most elemental piece of our aliveness, and the world needs us to be awake and aware.
External safety measures can never substitute a felt sense of internal safety.
No matter how long the pandemic lasts, or what’s to come next, you can remain a steady force for good if you can be a mostly accurate translator of your body’s signals.
We have one body and one nervous system.
That precious body needs our tending so that whatever is being stirred to the surface has a home.
Without a landing place in the body, we can never fully heal. We will be stuck in past habits and patterns keeping us from deepening relationships and more compassionate ferocity.
Our animal body needs tending to more than ever- we might even say that the only way we landed in this cluster is from generations and generations of following mental and intellectual goals and not heeding the relationships and necessities of the earth and four-leggeds.
We will laugh, scream, cry, shake, dance and be together in all of the ups and downs.
Our precious body needs tending so that we can be lifelong huntresses, with our sights on justice, reciprocity and harmony with nature.
We need you inhabiting your power to be a part of the grieving of the end of these times and the possibility of an emergent new world.
Your community and your family need you to hold on to pleasure like your life depends on it, even when you’re not sure what that means.
We can discover that together.

How this class is different from Activate Your Inner Jaguar

This is the most in depth course I offer all year.

After multiple rounds of Jaguar Emma has gained a thorough understanding of her own nervous system and has been helping others to understand theirs. Emma has been supporting the Jaguar movement for the last year by facilitating affiliate classes for women of color on the course. Emma is studying Somatic Trauma Therapies and is available to all Jaguar alumni for support and connection should anyone need it one on one.
No problem at all. We’ve had thousands of women take this course, and very few were able to come to every live webinar (and some couldn’t attend any live, because of work and other commitments). The videos in this course are meant to be watched sometime during the week—you’ll get a replay of each video within 24 hours of the live call. You’ll receive information and experiential exercises in each video that you can work with all week.
