I will be offering Womb Sovereignty Skillshares over a full weekend, Saturday & Sunday from 10am – 6pm with potluck lunches in 8 different cities during my summer teaching tour:

Oakland, CA ~ June 3 & 4

Topanga, CA  ~ June 24 & 25

Nevada City, CA ~ July 1 & 2

Lawrence, Kansas ~ July 22 & 23

Detroit, Michigan ~ July 29 & 30

Hudson, NY August ~ August 12 & 13

Lincoln, NB ~ August 19 & 20

Seattle, WA ~ September 2 & 3

I created this skillshare as an opportunity for me to share some of my favorite skills for claiming Womb Sovereignty with individuals as well as nurture the creation of intimate, self reliant communities across the country.

The cost of this skillshare is a sliding scale from $250-$350, & includes teaching materials as well as supplies for each participant to create & take home their own menstrual extraction kit. After I have secured 5 paying participants for each skillshare, there will be limited sliding scale, barter, work-trade, & scholarship available.

If you would like to join us for one of my Womb Sovereignty Skillshares this summer, please copy & paste the application questions below into the body of an e-mail sent to sam@samanthazipporah.com with the subject line “WSS + your location” (ex: WSS: Nevada City, CA) to begin the registration process. Space is limited, & all those interested in registration will be asked to answer the application & may require a phone interview.

 

 

What are previous participants from my Womb Sovereignty Skillshare offering saying?

“Womb Sovereignty skillshare is not only a deeply through convergence of the spirit, science & basics of the fertility cycle, its a deep act of women’s wisdom, friendship & trust. The circle created & the stage Sam sets is one of righteously & radically reclaiming our womb wisdom while subtly subjugating colonialism & the patriarchy!”

“I have dreamt of living in the paradigm of empowered, autonomous woman care, & at the Womb Sovereignty Skillshare I realized that I was actively living in it. What a breath of fresh air to reclaim our innate womb knowing without the need to be certified. I have a cervix; I can feel it everyday! Thanks to Speculum Spelunking with Sam, now I can look at it everyday. After returning home from the Womb Sovereignty Skillshare I received my moon blood. Being able to watch blood drip from my Cervical Os (which I learned to identify in the Skillshare) was truly an ecstatic empowering experience. Since the skillshare I have charted my cycle in a deeper way, everyday, including charting my temperature; cervical position, texture,  fluids, energy archetype, emotional experience; moon position; & dreams.”

“Absolutely amazing – my mind, heart & womb are ablaze with magic & new purpose”


*Respectful participants of all genders & sexual preferences interested in learning these skills are welcome to join, with awareness that our content is explicitly designed to empower folks with wombs who like to have sex with folks who have sperm.
