Imagine a world in which ageing is not something to be feared or fought against, but welcomed.
A world in which the maturing and ripening woman is revered and celebrated for her beauty and wisdom, and where our changing bodies are a testament to the depth and richness of who we are. A world in which the incessant narrative and encouragement to reverse ageing becomes obsolete and where elders are given their rightful place again.
Imagine it’s up to us to create this world.
When Women Blossom: a Celebration of the Wisening Woman is an invitation for women over the age of 40 to come together and explore the topic of age: what it means to us in our current realities, and how we might support one another to positively and proactively shape this.
What exactly are the dynamics behind our ageist cultural conditioning and how might I have internalised this? What are the ways in which I have suffered due to this, such as judging my appearance, doubting my value and comparing myself to others?
Making space for any grief or rage that arises, we ask ourselves what we are ready to let go of, so that we can create space for something new and life-affirming to take root and blossom.
Who am I beyond my conditioning? How do I want to feel? What new and empowered framings, narratives and perspectives might we be inspired to create together?
Through personal and shared enquiry, simple rituals and embodied practices we will create a field of playfulness, trust and curiosity where each woman is invited to reconnect with her blossoming, her individual essence and her gratitude and appreciation for her body. Bringing together our individual journeys and learnings, we will harvest our collective wisdom together and shape this new world, in which the beauty of the wisening woman is celebrated.
Anyone who identifies as a woman, over the age of 40.

Iva Samina loves and lives sensuality, as well as a conscious, aware and satisfying sexuality. She loves accompanying people of all genders and ages into their true expression, passion and creative power. It is a heart commitment to make her contribution to a free sexual culture: confidently, with humor and depth.
Iva is driven by the inner call to follow her passion. She intends to empower herself and other women, as well as involve men in the (re)discovery of a new, strong femininity. To shine from within, and allow others to shine: that is the mission she dedicates her life and work to.
After many years of self-discovery – immersing herself in her own femininity, magic and authentic creativity – she founded a coaching practice for sexual development in Berlin. In this professional space, she weaves elements from Tantra, Tao, Womb Wisdom Sexological Bodywork, Yoga and the art-of-intuition. In addition, Iva works as a birth-preparer and doula. As a mother of 3, Iva sees birth as a sexual and spiritual process: she wants to pass on this knowledge, take away people’s fear of childbirth, and support them in experiencing childbirth as empowering.
Ruby May is an educator, activist, coach and community leader in the field of feminine leadership and human connection, who is rallying for a revolution through listening to the wisdom of our bodies.
As well as activism being something we do, Ruby is facinated in the question of who we need to be.
Her initiative Know Your Flow, an online education and membership program brings together an international network of women who are exploring menstrual cycle awareness as a tool for developing body literacy, inspiring their leadership and creating cultural change.
She is also the creator of “The Game:’ which helps people connect more playfully and meaningfully.
Iva and Ruby share a deep friendship that began as they entered their forties, and have since accompanied one another in this new chapter and archetype of being a woman. Together they offer over 25 years of experience of enquiry, teaching and creating spaces for women. This is their first workshop they are teaching together.
