I help you liberate your feminine power through the Art of Being Feminine.

A N-African girl with a (wild) dream

I am born and raised in N-Africa. I did not feel free as a girl. Some of my feminist idols changed my life with their philosophy. Tahar Haddad (1899) and Habib Bourguiba (1903) from Tunisia, were pioneers: the first ‘male feminists’ to defend women’s rights in the (Arab-Muslim) world. Simone de Beauvoir (France) laid the foundations of my faith and ideals. Maya Angelou (U.S.) inspired me with her revolutionary ideas about womanhood, celebrating her bodily beauty but also her inner glow. Fatima Mernissi (Morocco) completed the emancipation circle and brought Western and Muslim- Arab feminism together for me.

Women are imprisoned in patriarchy.

Let’s break loose.

Building bridges

I left for Europe looking for a better egalitarian system, to spread my wings and fulfill my little girl’s dream: study at Sorbonne in Paris. However on arrival I soon learned that women in the West were not as free as I had thought. After studying at the Sorbonne-Paris III, I obtained my PhD (magna cum laude) at the prestigious Université Lumière II (France). I lived and worked in 3 continents and 5 countries, as researcher, lecturer, and for 15 years as a Professor in media & film studies at the university of Amsterdam. In parallel, I worked as an international consultant and public speaker in Feminine Leadership. I love creating bridges and connections between my original African-Arab-Muslim culture and my adopted Western culture; as well as bridges between my two favorite backgrounds: the scientific-academic world and the artistic world of film and dance.

The dance of the goddesses

To help women use their sensuality and bring back the goddesses that are hidden in them, I use the 4000-year-old Arab dance of the goddesses (Raqsat al Ilahat). An important part of the dance is the Al Cabassa, where we use our pelvic floor muscles to gracefully unlock our Erotic Capital. Not only does this movement have a therapeutic effect, it also has many emotional and physical benefits. It helps to release our sensual and sexual energy. This energy is the source of life according to the ancient Arabic culture.

Manifesto

The world lacks feminine qualities. We’ve lost the value of connecting and caring. There are too many cold decisions that are made. Too many male standards that are enforced. Too many people feel unhappy due to the toxic patriarchal behavior that’s expected from them. Let’s empower ourselves and bring the WoMan back into the world.

I believe in a world where there is room for us to use our feminine qualities. Where these qualities are seen as a strength with added value. We are in need of more feminine beauty and wisdom. So it is time to tap into our bodies and sensual energy to restore the balance between masculine and feminine.

There has been no better time to create the world we want to see. It is time to heal ourselves and balance out our values with more beauty, love, courage, strength, vulnerability and …
fun!

Let us take the lead and care for the world with compassion. Let’s bring back the WoMan!
