Meditation Secrets for Women:
Discovering Your Passion, Pleasure, and Inner Peace
Camille Maurine and Lorin Roche, Ph.D. (HarperOne, 2001)
In this year-long journey, we delve into the twelve Secrets of energy ecology that every woman needs to know. Whether you are a teacher of yoga or meditation or a beginner on the path, this course is intended to give you a deeper foundation in what works for the female body and psyche, and for your individual nature and life.
These liberating Secrets bust open the stereotypes and show you how natural, vibrant, and pleasurable meditation can be:
• Tap in to your inner roots and draw strength, nourishment, and inspiration
• Experience profound release of tension
• Get vital energy from all your emotions
• Celebrate your sensuality, inner beauty, and flow
• Honor your instincts and inner authority
• Cooperate with your hormones and biorhythms
• Connect to your primordial female power
• Move and breathe in your divine essential being
"Wise, wonderful and revolutionary. It returns the whole human being to joy, restorative serenity, and embodied, psychological and spiritual expansiveness." – Sylvia Perera, Author of Descent to the Goddess.
"Women's meditation insights and needs are very different from the traditional methods used for centuries by men in monasteries. Meditation Secrets for Women teaches you how to meditate with full access to the emotions and body wisdom that are a part of the divine." – Christiane Northrup, M.D., Author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
More Praise for Meditation Secrets for Women
If you are not familiar with the book, you may wonder what type of meditation we propose. This approach does not adhere to a specific tradition, yet it is informed by many. No dogma here. Lorin and I know from our decades of teaching that women are natural meditators. Rather than impose a structure from the outside, in this course, you learn to claim and cooperate with your innate wisdom to find healthy, pleasurable ways to meditate. We call this Instinctive Meditation®.
Read an excerpt from the Introduction
Each chapter covers one of the essential Secrets and is full of helpful insights, information, and anecdotes from other women. The friendly format includes:
Explorations (questions to help you personalize the message)
A fun Warm-Up
A Skill Circle
Reflections (great for journaling)
Your body and psyche are pulsating with wisdom and intelligence – your direct and personal communion with the infinite. Meditation Secrets for Women gives you twelve different doorways into that connection.
Meditation puts us in touch with the larger cosmic body in which we live and move and have our being:
A field of vibrating energies that gives birth to creation
A body of love that nourishes and sustains us
A network of information that inspires and in-forms us
A movement of evolution that heals and transforms us
The sanctuary of meditation allows your body, mind, and heart to commune with the forces of life and love. It is sacred time and space in which your nervous system can let go and receive the communication.
Camille with Israel David, son of Ana Claudia and Tim
When Meditation Secrets for Women came out in early 2001, it was the #1 bestselling product under $25 on Amazon. It struck a chord of truth. I’m proud to say it’s been translated into German, Dutch, Czechoslovakian, and Japanese, and on its way to more. We receive emails from women all over the world. How I love the web of connection!
Back then, women’s spirituality had taken root in some circles, but no one ~ until our book ~ had asked what women need in meditation. What must women know to thrive in their practice and get the greatest benefits?
Some people were shocked and even outraged. Why should women have their own approach? It just wasn’t on anybody’s map. The truth is, most meditation traditions are from male, monastic practices from the Far East and distant past. Many thanks to the monks and yogis for what they have preserved (and I have experienced and loved those forms), but let’s face it, they don’t have a clue about what works for women.
The time has come. It is up to us, Women of the 21st Century, to discover and evolve a female-savvy approach!
“I am reading your book Meditation Secrets for Women. I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate it! It's a great, great book. Your experience and your insights are simply invaluable... I only regret I didn't come across it sooner...” ~ Dr. Julia P., Psychiatrist, Ukraine and USA
“Your book has made a wonderful difference in my life…Between being a busy wife, mother and owner of a flourishing graphic design business, I have found time to reclaim myself. Meditation has made a tremendous difference and it is now something I really look forward to when life challenges me… I relate to all that you say and use your meditations religiously. I never leave home without your book. It goes everywhere with me. Thank you for writing this for all women.” – Ainslie in British Columbia
“I’m reading your book but have to take a break to let you know how absolutely thrilled and inspired I am. I absolutely love it! Reading the introduction makes me realize that the universe for years has been telling me that meditation is on my path, but has held me back from really diving in, until our path crossed, enabling me to dive right in to the juicy and feminine way, instead of having me and my perfectionist mind struggle with absolute stillness.” ~ Daggi in Denmark

Who should take this course?Mothers, grandmothers, daughters, lovers, wives, business women, artists, homemakers, teachers, scientists, professionals, architects, therapists, coaches, yoga practitioners, meditation instructors, students, bodyworkers and healers of all kinds, dancers, wildwomen, gentle spirits, passionate and compassionate women awakening to their divine essential nature...
Especially if you work with women in any professional capacity, you will want to steep yourself in this embodied wisdom.
In the previous years of the Course, we’ve had a splendid range of livelihood, geography, and experience ~ all decades of age, from the 20's to the 70’s ~ an array of individual differences within the deep commonality of womanhood...
Wherever you are on Planet Earth, this is a context to have live interaction with the author and go deeper into the movement of your soul.
You receive the benefit of Camille’s decades of experience, from her first formal meditation in 1972 to developing this approach and teaching thousands of women (and always learning). Along the way, the practices have taken on depth with her training as a dancer and body therapist, studies in Jungian psychology, and immersion in Continuum Movement since the early 80’s. Not to mention, for 30 years she has been cross-pollinating with Dr. Lorin Roche, her husband and co-author, and one of the most comprehensive and insightful meditation teachers on the Planet. Bio. This year Lorin will be with us for four extra Q&A sessions!
Female meditative practices are not “one size fits all.” No dry and rigid discipline for us. Women must have more than one entry into meditation, so that we can meet ourselves in a healthy way no matter what is going on in our world, in our bodies, in our hearts. That’s why there are 12 Secrets – luscious, love-drenched, life-giving gateways to the Self.
It’s important to find what works for you and your individual life, awareness practices that you love and want to do. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced inner traveler, your practice should evolve as you evolve ~ now, doesn’t that just make sense?
“This course is more than just meditation, it's a course about life and beyond; it's meditation for the 21st century. Naturally woman-orientated, encouraging women to connect and inhabit their specific strengths, challenges and mysteries... That a woman's individuality brings balance, wholeness and health to self, other, the world.” ~ Arian Young, The Intrinsic Group, Melbourne, Australia
“I would recommend this course to any woman who is interested in learning to meditate or deepening/expanding the practice they already have. The monthly calls and guided meditation practices enhance the use of the book and cater to any learning style. Even though it is an internet program, the support and intimacy is abundant and the collective of women on the calls helps contain my process in a supportive womb of transformation. Your generous availability for email questions, and the private sessions, are an important component for feeling connected to a teacher.” ~ Kimberlee Orenstein, Founding Director, Yoga Loka Reno, Nevada
“Camille’s online course, Meditation Secrets for Women, has been an outstanding opportunity to LIVE her book of the same name. She has the most soothing voice on whose frequencies the material seeped in to my being... life changing messages to my cells and soul. A Master Teacher.” ~ E. Jessica Fleming ~ Masters in Mental Health, John Hopkins Medical School; Former Director of the Group Harmonics Retreat Center, Albuquerque, NM and the present Co-Director of SoulPath Journeys, Auckland, New Zealand
“I most definitely recommend this program to other women. I have a whole list of women to whom I will suggest the program because of the richness it offers. The opportunity to explore our deepest woman-ness with such a loving group is exceptional. The fact that we can do it from wherever on the planet we are, benefitting also from the richness of the teleconference discussions and your personal availability and loving support, makes this is an unusual, not to be missed, opportunity for personal exploration and growth. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” ~ ~ Elisabeth Crago, New Zealand and USA

Register Now for 2013!
The 2013 Course officially began February 10th, but no problem ~ you will receive all prior calls, meditations mp3’s, and other supportive material!
How It WorksWe explore one of the Meditation Secrets per month, following the structure of the book as well as Camille’s intuitive guidance. Together we visit the theme of the chapter, the Explorations, Skill Circle, and primary Meditations. Then we discuss your questions and discoveries as a group on the conference calls.
The Teleconferences are twice monthly through a special conference phone line and webpage. You can dial in by phone, use the special Skype connection, or join online via webcast. There are even some local numbers throughout the US, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, and THE UK.
You will receive the Schedule of Calls in advance. The details take into account the location of all 2013 participants.
Our First Official TeleSeminar is Sunday, February 10th for the New Moon ~ and new year on the lunar calendar! Registration stays open throughout February ~ join us now.
No worries if you cannot participate live ~ each call is recorded and you receive a link/mp3 so you can listen later whenever works for you. We have found that even if you are on the call, it is powerful to listen to the recording again and absorb even more deeply.
The two classes per month are spaced approximately two weeks apart, in resonance with the full and new moons. The calls are approximately 80 minutes each. Camille gives an overview of the Secret and responds to your questions and comments. This gives added dimension and living reality to what is in the book.
Throughout the Course you receive feedback on your meditation practice and Self-Care, as desired. As you read each Secret and do the journalling exercises about your personal experiences, you are invited to send your responses to Camille for reflection and support. Every woman has her own rhythm and style of participating in the Course. You find the level of involvement that feels satisfying to you.
The twice-monthly calls are scheduled to rotate between different time zones to accommodate participants around the globe. You will receive the schedule in advance so you can plan to participate live as often as possible. As we have discovered, it is inevitable that people miss a call here and there. Since the teleconferences are recorded, you can always listen later.
Each of the past three years of the Course has been a profound and loving journey
with women around the world. I am deeply inspired to share the 2013 adventure with you.
Feel free to ask me any questions, so that you feel comfortable joining us this year.
“The material is phenomenally rich, carefully thought out and very well presented. The quality of the writing, the examples, the meditations, and the journaling suggestions could not be better. The program was extremely well organized with a carefully thought out schedule, appropriate adherence to the original plan, and excellent use of technology. The fact that there are two calls each month, at different times, facilitated our ongoing engagement. The availability of recorded calls filled any unavoidable gaps. Your presence and accessibility, both during the calls and between them, created a loving container for each of us and the group as a whole. The opportunity for participation during each call allowed for further enrichment by encouraging our sharing of our individual perspectives and supporting us in our struggles. The recorded meditations were an additional gift and represent incredible generosity on your part.” ~ Elisabeth Crago, New Zealand and USA
“Every single word in the book, in the meditations, the music, everything has been carefully thought out but also carefully crafted in a way that resonates with me, as if it had been developed just for me.” ~ Alicia R., Berkeley CA, USA
“A truly excellent part of the course is Camille’s availability via email, phone and Facebook for coaching. A stalwart ally, I feel completely loved and supported by her, which means I can go deeper into the process of self-exploration and discovery.”
“Camille’s meditation audio downloads are exquisite multi-dimensional explorations to guide us deeper into the subconscious and visceral realms where the truly transformative shifts happen. In my own life the ripples of these shifts have been steadily extending far and wide... I always drift into an altered state of profound relaxation and regeneration as Camille’s voice, coupled with the images she evokes, soothe my nervous system and ease my mind. Without fail I emerge feeling renewed and more deeply integrated.
“As someone who is quite cerebral, yet also, as a dedicated yoga practitioner and teacher, firmly anchored in the visceral reality of my body and the power of the body as a locus for navigating the layers of the self, I appreciate Camille’s vast intelligence and practical wisdom. Coupled with her refined sensibility and intuitive understanding of how to put people at ease, it makes her one of the most dynamic, multi-talented, under-stated, yet powerful teachers I’ve had. She is a rare gem. I can’t recommend her highly enough.” ~ Dearbhla Kelly, Los Angeles, CA
