If you’re not familiar with Lara Catone’s work let me share with you this. Lara is the creatrix of the Artemis School, the first and only educational institution weaving sex education with embodiment and nature based mystery traditions. The school teaches the full spectrum of women’s sexual and reproductive health from arousal to climax, menstruation to menopause and from maiden to crone. Students learn to map their sexuality to every aspect of their life from brain chemistry to creative capacity.
When I first stumbled across Lara’s school, my first thought was “wow” what unique work. My second thought was one of sadness. Sadness for the feminine, that these kinds of topics and conversations are not common place and they damn-well should be.
So of course I had to invite Lara onto the show to share her story and find out how she came to be doing this powerful and desperately needed work.
In this interview, Lara and I explore:
+ The history of the exiled feminine.
+ The shift from a lunar consciousness to solar consciousness and the impact of this on the essence of the wild woman.
+ The heartbreak and loss Lara experienced in her 20s which led her on a search to discover her spiritual path so she could better understand life, death, love and loss.
+ Her driving question “What makes sex sacred?”
+ How she stays true to her self and her soul mission, despite the societal projections that come with teaching sexual sovereignty.
As a warning, if you are sensitive to stories of sexual trauma or violence, please listen to this episode with caution.
+ Lara’s Evoke Virtual Mystery School* – The Evoke Mystery School supports you in initiations and rites to reclaim your passages as a woman. Evoke offers sex education like you’ve never had it before. From first blood to sex to motherhood and menopause you will be guided with maps and practices for communing with your body wisdom, the pulse of the earth and mystery.
