Spring Equinox Yoni Egg Meditation

My most cherished qigong ritual you can use to bro down with the nascent magic of your Ovarian Palace and align with the potent gestational power of the shifting spring season. Throw a yoni egg in the mix to add a hefty dose of fertile spring mojo and cosmic egg medicine!

1. Sit quietly with the eyes closed in a comfortable seated position, with the hands in Yoni Mudra, forming a downward triangle over the ovaries. 

2. Begin by doing a few rounds of Ujjayi ‘throat breathing’, rasping the breath over the throat, making an ocean-like sound with your tongue resting on your palate, mouth closed and lips soft.

3. Focus your loving attention on the ovaries until you feel their energy expand and become warm. 

4. As you breathe in, gently contract the opening to the yoni using your kegel muscles, and as you breathe out relax the muscles. Use your mind, breath, and muscles to do this gently. This motion draws qi and energy into the Ovarian Palace (the Taoist name for the womb, essentially the mid-point between ovaries), allowing more and more qi to gather here with each out breath.

5. Continue pumping qi into the Ovarian Palace using your yoni muscles, and begin to collect the warm energy in your ovaries like a vessel filling with honey.

6. As this energy builds, you can start to allow the Ovarian Qi to flow down to the perineum, and then gently pump this qi up the back of the body to the brain. 

7. Spiral this potent qi inside the brain to allow it to charge up all the master glands. Spiral 9 times counter clockwise and then 9 times clockwise, breathing normally. Don’t feel the need to be too exact about this. Experiment with the energy in a way that feels natural and organic.

8. When you feel the energy potently spiraling in the brain, on an out-breath, allow the qi to flow back down the front midline, and either send it around the orbit again, or finish by gathering and storing the qi into the womb.

9. Breathe deeply, smiling unconditional love into the Ovarian Palace.

Yoni Care + DIY Gynecology Workshop

Yoni Care

With our bodies under ceaseless attack and our rights to healthcare perpetually threatened, there has never been a more crucial time to enter into dialogue about women's health and self-governance. How do we take care of ourselves when the system fails to protect and sustain us? What resources do we have to promote healthy cycling and family planning beyond our yearly check up and the limits of conventional medicine? How have traditional medicines sustained generations of women and nurtured their bodies from maiden to mother to crone? How can we claim agency over our own reproductive health, and engender a state of true bodily autonomy?

Join Carolyn Barron L.Ac of Botanarchy Herbs & Acupuncture for a Valentine's workshop on yoni care and DIY gynecology. We will imbibe women's elixirs, commune with herbal allies, discuss cycling, menstrual health, yoni eggs, vaginal steaming, and holistic strategies for gynecological and reproductive health. Class will commence with a yoni clinic to address your most sordid gynecological queries. Class space is limited, so please email carolyn@botanarchy.com to register in advance.
