The “Fire and The Fragrance” for Women:
Igniting Power, Passion and Purpose for Enhanced Vitality
By Greta Hassel, MFT
The Essence of the Feminine can be summed up in a gardenia bloom ~ sweet, beautiful, and awe -inspiring. This essence takes root in our Feminine Fire, our divine, creative power that is alive, vibrant and expanding. Once awakened, this divine, feminine, creative power nourishes us, matures within us and fuels our purpose to play our part in the game of life. We live in exciting times when ancient wisdom and modern science converge to give powerful technologies for transformation, vitality and optimal well-being.
Our vitality, or inner fire, can become dimmed by chronic stress, financial fears, addictions, burnout, or relationship challenges. When we have good experiences, we feel fired up, life is sweet, and we can easily find ourselves in flow and serenity. Disappointing experiences can compromise our true selves, our relationships and our ability to make a difference.
Do you have a daily practice to maintain balance? How do you reset or regenerate when you get out of alignment? Can you sustain a sense of Aliveness, Joy, and Well being on an ongoing basis? If your answer is yes, that’s great, keep it up! If not, the Fire and the Fragrance program may be perfect for you to build and strengthen your personal practice for optimal juiciness and magnetism.
On Power: Power fuels our vitality, success and our radiance. This is a call for each individual to take responsibility for their Power, and develop it. Awaken and deepen your strength, self-confidence, authority, courage and fortitude. By choosing our thoughts and actions we bring out the best in ourselves; by utilizing our power to inspire, we bring out the best in others. Ultimately, by evoking our power from within, we transform consciousness.
On Passion: Our Passion is what gives us a sense of Aliveness. What lights you up? Are you excited by your life? Are you turned on by what you get to do this very day? Do you give yourself the nurturing and support needed to be successful with your heart’s desires? I am passionate about removing obstacles to the vibrant, loving relationships that fulfill us in heart, body, mind and soul. It is my life’s joy and dharma (service or work).
On Purpose: Encoded within our passion, are clues to our Purpose and ultimately, our destiny. We are supported by our “entelechy” a Greek word that means the deep Purpose that guides our becoming. As Jean Houston, visionary and author, describes it, the entelechy of an acorn is to be an oak tree, of a baby to become a fully grown adult. This higher guidance can help you live from your deeper purpose and higher destiny. It is by awakening our inner fire, empowered by our clear vision, that women are enabled to achieve their purposes in society. In this way, we may fulfill the words of the Dalai Lama who boldly proclaims “the world will be saved by the Western woman”.
In “The Fire and the Fragrance” series, we take on this challenge. Utilizing cutting edge technologies from dance, breath, emotional clearing, movement, focus and play, women learn a system that can become a daily home practice. When a woman has developed her power, her passion and her purpose, she has found her Sweet Spot! Thorns have become teachers. Petals open in multi-faceted bloom. Uniquely self-expressed, she now celebrates her feminine fragrance birthed from deep within.
Fire and Fragrance classes are taught aboard the 57-foot yacht, Concordance, in Marina Del Rey off Mindanao Way. On the top deck, open to the elements of water, sky and fresh air, we stretch, breath, dance and focus.
