Both masculine and feminine energies must be cultivated within each of us, regardless of one’s gender, to enable us to respond to life with attunement and intelligence, and embody our complete potential.
From an archetypal perspective, the enlightened feminine is the expression of the conscious, awakened, Queen/Goddess whose entire being is listening for the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs of everything in creation. She functions with clarity and responsiveness to what each distinct creation needs, in order to become realized, whole, and contribute its gifts.
From an archetypal perspective, the enlightened masculine is the expression of the conscious, awakened King/God who is passionately driven to provide and create the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual– inner and outer– structures that are needed to support the wholeness of each aspect of creation.
At Inspiration, we are seek to incorporate into classes the potency of dwelling in both of these energies. For instance, there is a great receptivity and attunement to each persons individual processes and needs; yet, also a call to discipline and structure. There is a deep compassion for the suffering of each person, while emphasizing a deep call to function as a mature adult. There are parts of classes that are trance-like, poetic, spontaneous, yielding, and soft, and there are parts of classes that are rigorous, challenging, highly directive, and concrete.
In the dance between these two energies, unity through the inner sacred marriage becomes possible. Students can become creatively responsive to the ebbs and flows of life. Through integration of masculine and feminine energies, students have contact with choices and the wisdom to utilize a greater spectrum of responses, aptitudes, and intelligences and identify what would bring healing and actualization to each moment.
