For so long, we’ve been told how we should be, what we shouldn’t be, and WHO and WHAT we are. And guess what? I completely followed the script! Or…the TRANCE.

Consequently, for so many years, I’ve been thinking and being in a way that has been going against my TRUE nature – ultimately limiting myself from living fully and authentically. I’ve contracted, when I truly wanted to EXPAND, I’ve acted small, when I truly knew I was BIG. Why would I do this??

Through deep self-inquiry, somatic movement work, combined with journaling, discussion, and a variety of literature, held in a safe and supportive setting with other divine women, I was able to explore and dig deeper into some of these beliefs and ways of being – through my body.
In moving towards healing the separation from the Divine Feminine, I feel like I am truly starting to come out of my cocoon so that I can expand my beautiful, bold wings and fly!


I was fortunate to participate in the Queen of the Jungle six-week program. I was aware that my beliefs about myself, as a 68-year woman, continue to influence how I move through the world. One of those beliefs that permeated my being was: “I am not OK in this body”. Fortunately, I have a huge toolbox of how to manage my feelings, fears and doubts, yet even with that, I found myself often struggling inside myself with negative self-talk and I had deep pain that lingered throughout my cells for most of my life.

After taking this course, I joined together with eight other women, to explore the “trance” that happens to many women. I realized that the work was unpeeling the onion of my pain through sharing, witnessing others, moving our bodies, daily inquiry, homework assignments that included research on this topic, and the brilliant leadership of Maryanne Comaroto. Sharing her life’s work enabled me to access a new paradigm of possibilities for loving myself unconditionally.


I found out there was so much I did not know about listening to my body, and why that was so. After a while, that just hurts. In this class, I learned to listen to my body, dance with it, cherish it. Amazing relief and healing followed. I loved experiencing “embodied learning” and sharing with the other women. This is a wonderful awakening experience.


QOJ was a transformative experience that has put me on the path towards greater consciousness. Each online session was well-facilitated and exceptionally crafted. Maryanne’s passion for helping women awaken from the trance is contagious and inspiring.

Not only did I gain profound insight into my own deeply rooted struggles regarding the trance, but I found the power of a small group of women sharing their own unique experiences around the trance to be both cathartic and healing.

The program was well worth my time and energy, and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking deeper connections in their life.


To recognize the voice of the Divine Feminine speaking to me through my body and my inner knowing with such insight and wisdom was one of the greatest gifts from being involved in QOJ. To begin to see and break through the trance of all the old voices, conditioning, and limitations that were so much a part of me they were actually the skin that I wore, is freeing, empowering, and life-changing.

I am so grateful for the community of women I have now for support for the continued awakening and expression of our full, embodied Divine selves.
