Writing is a primary form of expression for our curriculum. We encourage daily journal-writing to get creative juices flowing, and create poetry and short stories that defy category and appeal to our senses.
Visual art is our way of communicating without language. We create short films, draw, paint, make collages, and experiment in nature. We invoke the traditions of indigenous cultures to honor Mother Earth.
We use technology wisely, to communicate wisely. Videos and plays involve paying tribute to sacred writers and creating sacred texts for a new beginning in our world. Our performances honor women as often as possible, and celebrate gender fluidity.
Our members focus on monthly themes to help bond and learn. Current and upcoming themes involve October's theme: "The Woman as Man," ways that women have had to adopt masculine tendencies through art and literature; and "The Wild Rose," a journey through literature and art that celebrates and highlights our inherent wild nature as a path to discovery and healing.
You can find The Madame's books here, and/or follow along on her Substack Newsletter for young people about art, sensuality, storytelling, and tapping into our bodies' and soul's intuitive wisdom to make good decisions. (All ages welcome.) You can also learn more about her life-coaching for individuals wanting to grow deeper in self-love and couples desiring more intimacy, fun, and expression through her website Janamarierose.com
We base our connection and community around the joy of creative expression, the importance of silent contemplation, and knowledge of the inherent wisdom of our bodies. We also recognize the importance of play, silliness, and fun for people of all ages.
We use creative expression and bonding practices to heal from the repression and shame often instituted by rigid doctrines and ideology that have led us away from our intuition and inner wisdom.
We educate about the connection of sacredness and sensuality and teach a healthy integration of the two through the use of scents, touch, crystals, and more. We explore our senses so we are not dominated by them, and remain rooted in the tradition of yoga philosophy.
We honor Mother Earth and her bounty in the digital age, so that we may recognize the vastness and beauty all around us. We do not limit ourselves with screens to determine the reality of our world.
We use technology in a wise way that helps us learn, explore, and experiment, as well as educate others about social justice, equality, spirituality, and the dignity of human beings that goes beneath the surface of image.
Madame Rose Center knows the importance of contemplation, solitude, and time spent in nature to create art that heals. We teach meditation, cafe-sitting, breath and energy movement, crystals, and artistic alchemy for discovering the mysteries of the universe. We also communicate through oral storytelling and encourage natural settings for our practices whenever possible.
Our purpose is to help women bond so that we can revive the feminine energy that has been lost in our world. We seek to defy categories and labels and live as fully embodied human beings, acknowledging the strength in femininity. While we pay special focus to young women, we also welcome women of all ages, mothers and daughters, and even men who'd like to learn about how to tap into unique creative expression, fluidity and flow, and take time away from technology to help engage the soul.
Madame Rose offers private healing sessions of reiki and energy work as well as coaching and mentorship surrounding intimacy education, so that people can adopt lifestyle practices to grow in self-love and foster meaningful relationships. Madame also teaches yoga and meditation. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about coaching and mentorship.
