Regena Thomashauer


Regena Thomashauer – the one and only “Mama Gena” – is a teacher and best-selling author, mother and media personality, and founder and CEO of the School of Womanly Arts, which began in her living room in 1998 and has since grown into a global movement.

Regena believes that women are the greatest untapped natural resource on the planet, and that as people of all genders reclaim the magnificence of the feminine, the patriarchy will fall away, liberating us all.

She’s dedicated her work to women, specifically, because Regena knows Woman. And while Woman is an expansive concept (there are so many ways to be a woman), those of us who identify as women are connected through a common global experience of oppression. We are living in a culture that shames our bodies, rebukes our emotionality, fears our sexuality, violates our safety, and makes us wrong for having feminine aspects, for being women at all.

In her classroom and through her books, Regena shares our foremothers’ knowledge and embodied wisdom from pre-patriarchal times, the thousands and thousands of years when goddess culture (and pleasure) reigned. She shifts the way women hold their sexuality and identities, both individually and culturally. She creates communities of women who are so outrageously and wildly

“I am devoted to raising women up to feel comfortable, strong and powerful in their bodies and souls. I am devoted to banishing shame and replacing it it with irrepressible pride and joy. I am devoted to teaching women to reconnect with turn-on and to release their fire, their outrageous outrage, their unstoppable love, their enthusiasm, their eros. I am devoted to women.” – Regena Thomashauer

The Pleasure Revolution

Regena Thomashauer (Mama Gena) is a revolution: an icon, teacher, author, mother and one of a handful of pioneers on the planet researching the nature of pleasure and dedicating her life to the discipline of pleasure. Self-taught in the social, cultural and economic history of women including the ancient Goddess religion, which dominated for 30-50 centuries of recorded history, Regena uses her more than 20 years of research and her knowledge of female pleasure to open doors for women today by giving them a context in which to maximize their power, passion, enthusiasm and creativity.

Difficult to Speak Truth

Does Your Truth Hurt?

How hard is it for you to say your truth? What happens when you see something you are in complete disagreement with? Do you squirm yourself to silence, inside? Or flick out the truth like you were tossing a handful of coins in a fountain? And how about the truth of the way you feel? Like—let’s say—when you feel scorched with jealousy? Or unhappy with the way your lover is treating you?
