A few years ago, for our Talk Back conference, I was brainstorming ideas for workshops. 

Before I knew it, I typed this:

“Some of us treat our vaginas like we treat our money— we give them away without ever looking at them.”

I was talking about myself because I had spent years feeling disempowered, both sexually and financially. I was afraid to look at my body and my bank account because both were “less than flattering.”

So I gave away my coins and my "nether parts." I put them on the clearance rack because, in my mind, they were discounted. Sexual trauma, poverty and "survival sex" had convinced me that I was less than.

Tired of feeling broken and being broke, I began to examine my thoughts.  Yes I realized that my perception of myself had, that I had decided that was all I was worth, and then was surprised when nothing improved.

I began to wonder,

Is there a correlation between how I treat my money and my body?

Is there a correlation between other women’s bodies and their money?

I noticed that, in many cases, there was a pattern. And what I discovered was eye-opening. I saw that even women who seemed empowered sexually and pretty good at managing their money were still short-changing themselves. These women were the epitome of what I aspired to be, confident, sexually empowered, financially savvy, and secure — and yet, they are still dreaming small and are afraid to step outside of their comfort zones. Why? Because of the correlation between how we manage our bodies, sex, and money.

Naked: The Sex, Money, and Power Retreat is about rising above turning your vulnerabilities into strengths so that so that you can live by a new model designed to help you gain more freedom as a woman by offering you one set of tools that will inspire and teach you how to authentically own your sexual power and increase your bottom lines.

Insight on handling the new power and increased wealth that comes with your empowerment

A few years ago, for our Talk Back conference, I was brainstorming ideas for workshops.

I was talking about myself because I had spent years feeling disempowered, both sexually and financially. I was afraid to look at my body and my bank account because both were “less than flattering.”
So I gave my money and myself away. I put them both on the clearance rack because they already felt so discounted. But sitting on the clearance rack was a different feeling. I felt less than, and when I really examined it, I realized that my perception of myself had put me there, that I had decided that was all I was worth, and then was surprised when nothing improved.

THIS VIRTUAL RETREAT IS ABOUT VULNERABILITY AND POWER AND LOOKING AT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HOW WE SEE AND UNDERSTAND BOTH OUR BODIES AND OUR FINANCES.

IT’S ABOUT RECLAIMING AND OWNING OUR BODIES WITHOUT APOLOGY SO THAT WE CAN OWN OUR DOLLARS WITHOUT APOLOGY.
HOW OFTEN HAVE WE DENIED OR RAN FROM THEIR POWER?

If you are sick of your lackluster relationship with:
  • sex
  • money
  • power
  • pleasure
  • or personal and professional partnerships
then learning from Dr. Sagashus Levingston directly, in a live environment, versus only through pre-recorded video is how you’ll learn to feel empowered between the sheets and between the folds of your wallet. You’ll find the strength to be bold enough to experience the freedom of embracing all that you are and how your body looks every day of the month and position yourself as an inspiration to other women and your daughters - no matter how taboo it seems. We want you to come to this retreat and begin honestly discussing and creating strategies for managing the cultural and personal challenges that come with owning your sexual and financial power.
This virtual retreat will be over 80% off for the duration of the Nothing’s Wasted Tour (typically a $10,000 retreat) - but don’t wait. There are a limited number of spots, as the retreat works best with a small group. While you will be covered and dressed, we expect you to show up ready to be vulnerable for this two-day retreat with the award-winning teacher, Dr. Sagashus Levingston.
Limited space available. Save your spot today!
