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

“Before I took Samantha’s class I had deep internalized fears around exploring my own body, and placed my sexuality mostly in the hands of my male partners. Samantha’s approach toward the knowing that we have bodies and we can practice honing in on understanding our sexuality in a very straight forward and clear way was amazingly supportive and inspiring. I honor Samantha so much for her courage and strength to spread this crucial information to women around the country. I am blown away and very inspired.”

“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 subjugating colonialism & the patriarchy!”

“I have dreampt 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.
