This workshop is truly unbelievable! It doesn’t matter where you are at right now – relaxed or stressed out – which questions you are asking for yourself and what you do professionally – DO IT! It’s a huge gift for us women, all women, because it works on such deep levels, and strengthens our courage and trust in our talents and uniqueness through our feminine essence and beauty. It shows us practical exercises that we can use in our everyday – and especially professional life. The workshop helps with tremendous clarity to confront oneself, to re-discover and accept yourself anew and to say yes to your weaknesses and shadow parts. With purposeful exercises Joya supports to let go of old patterns that stop us to take off, to have fun, to feel like a woman and to live our life and our dreams and be successful in our professions. – Ulrike M., Actress/Director/Painter

I took so much more out of this workshop than I expected. I don’t know how we could make that many experiences in only 2 days – a miracle! How amazing it is to be supported by women and to be held with such generosity, warmth, grief, pain and the loud and soft laughter, the humor, the strength. As the artist I have learned how much power and strength the woman inside of me holds and I won’t hide it any longer. My emotions and feelings, my intuition are my strengths. My beauty, my knowledge, my emotions are part of me, they enrich. And you, dear Goddess Joya, you rock! – Judith S., Actress/Writer
