In this Module, we explore what it’s like to be female in a patriarchal society where women’s bodies are seen as a liability. Although it seems ‘normal’, it hasn’t always been this way. Let’s see what it was like in pre-patriarchal times when the female body was revered as sacred. We look the beginnings of patriarchy – when and how did that happen? What is the role of feminism in reclaiming the sacredness of our female bodies? We consider the importance of respecting sexual differences and the imperative to restore male/female balance on our planet.
This Module explores how we begin life as female. We delve into intracellular life, looking at chromosomes, DNA and genes, as well as the processes of cell division – mitosis and meiosis. We see how the sperm carries the deciding factor in sex determination and we follow the miraculous process by which sperm and egg find each other to ignite the formation of a new individual. We then explore the fascinating process by which a human embryo differentiates into male or female - a process with three distinct windows of development that build in diversity. We consider gender as a spectrum, rather than a binary, and the fact that our sameness precedes our difference.

Here we explore our ovaries as spiritual powerhouses! We look at their dual role as hormone producers and egg receptacles, and at the close relationship between our ovaries and our brains. We discover the unique characteristics of the egg cell, its majestic beauty and its spiritual significance. Then we look the ‘arms’ of our reproductive system, the uterine tubes, which connect the ovaries with the body of the womb – and how they dance their way through the menstrual cycle. Like an underwater garden, the tubes play a crucial role as the site of fertilisation. We reflect upon their astonishing mobility, intelligence and intrinsic openness to loss.

The uterus is the organ par excellence that captures, incarnates and expresses female spirituality. In this Module, we explore the dizzying heights and profound depths of the womb! We look into the cleverness of its design, including the cervix, which almost deserves to be respected as a separate organ in its own right. We explore the alchemy of this place of gestation, labour and birth, and marvel at its exceptional power and strength. As the space of the Divine Matrix which provides the scaffold for new human life to take form, the womb is seen as the seat of power and authority for a woman in many cultures. A place of paradox and mystery, the womb is the human expression of the fecundity and sacredness of the Earth.

This Module takes us on a guided tour of our genital anatomy. We discover the exquisite design of the vagina, which is geared towards pleasure, including the G-spot and female ejaculation. We look at the boundary penetration it affords us and the need for discernment and clear boundaries. And we consider the symbolism of the vagina as gateway into the world, a sacred portal. We then explore the intricacy and inexhaustible diversity of the vulva, with its array of erectile and engorgement tissue, glands and nerve supply that are designed purely for pleasure – nothing else!

In this module, we explore how menstruation is a body process inscribed with meaning and that in Western culture, it’s been associated with shame, embarrassment and the profane. We look at the remarkable physiology of menstruation and how excruciating pain is not the design. We dismantle the dishonouring of PMS and normalise the heightened sensitivity of the pre-menstruum as one of the spiritual gifts of our bleeding. Then we consider how we can transform our perspective to go beyond the cultural shame into an experience of menstruation as a deeply spiritual practice.

As the microcosm of Earth’s macrocosm, our female body is the repository of an exceptional form of spiritual power that, when activated, can become a potent form of biological leadership. At this critical turning point in the history of our planet, the world needs our activated female presence as never before. There is an urgent need to restore the balance of male female energies and to move into a partnership model of social organisation that cares for Mother Earth as our top priority. We explore some practical ways of making that change and bring the program to completion.
International author and speaker, Sharon Moloney, PhD, has spent a lifetime exploring these issues. As a women’s health practitioner and clinical hypnotherapist, she’s supported hundreds of women to understand their fertility, love their bodies and transform menstruation into something they value.

"Sharon Moloney has a wealth of knowledge and an impressive depth of understanding about the female body, developed over decades of ground-breaking work in both academic and practical contexts. In this illuminating book, she combines scientific research with the spiritual context of women’s embodiment, offering the reader a profound awareness of what it means to be born female."
"Sharon Moloney has long been dedicated to bringing forth the sacredness of women’s bodies and the importance of female biology in personal identity and as a gift to the world — the gift of life. In a time when people are becoming more and more mechanized and detached from the body, this book brings us back to earth, reminding us we are part and parcel of nature."
"Sharon brings authenticity, wisdom, and power to her life-long exploration of the feminine, as a woman, therapist, mother and writer, and her sharing is generous and deeply nourishing for all of us."
"From the first words of Sharon’s Introduction, we know we are in safe hands. Her knowledge-base covers feminist theories, as well as biological and spiritual perspectives. We know she will keep all these important facets of life as female in mind throughout her book. In the years I have known Sharon, I have been witness to her exquisite and meticulous scholarship, and her beauty of mind and heart which glows in her physical presence. Our conversations have given mutual strength as we each attend the embodiment of femaleness."
"Sharon is highly educated in the fields of psychotherapy, human physiology (particularly of childbirth, menstruation and the stress response) and theology, including the teachings of diverse spiritual traditions. She is a gifted educator and researcher, and a wise counsellor for people from every walk of life, complemented by the wisdom of lived experience. Sharon is a Wise Woman in every sense of the word. She is diligent and creative, sober and joyful, irreverent and deeply respectful of the sacred, nurturing and assertive, wise and playful."
"I attended Sharon’s focus group exploring women's thoughts about menstruation and their reproductive life as part of her Doctoral research. At the time I was peri-menopausal and dreading the years that lay ahead. The way Sharon discussed being a woman in that session completely flipped my thinking. I saw menopause to be a powerful and positive time in my life, the essence of validation of my reproductive life and my womanhood. This strongly influenced my understanding of the role that midwives play in educating, advocating and supporting women."
"As a participant in Sharon’s workshops, I have gained much insight, particularly as a midwife promoting normal physiological birth. The workshops assisted me to gain a better understanding of the paternalistic world women find themselves in, and the sexualisation of women to the detriment of how they perceive and value menstruation, pregnancy, birth and lactation. Sharon is making an incredible contribution to women and families."
"Written with a soft and intuitive flair, this book aptly and magnetically draws the reader in deeper, unfolding it's juiciness as each page turns. Uniquely, this go-to resource about Female Power is inclusive of all genders and provides an enlightening experience for sex educators and birthing professionals alike."
"Sharon has, through her seven-part program Activate Your Female Power, done exactly that. She has created a platform that is a powerful resting place; a safe supportive container to honour our most sacred seat of authority and magic. I experienced a profound actualisation and embodiment of inner teaching, of understanding my body with such reverence as to just how powerful my intuitive womb knowing truly is. I highly encourage anyone to do this course and spend as much time as you can with Sharon!"
