Our Meditation Secrets for Women community is a vibrant, empowering connection with a diverse group of women around the world. For the past six 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 80’s – an array of individual differences shared within the deep commonality of womanhood.
Many of the women have been on the journey for most (or all!) of the prior years, stating that each round through the 12 Secrets reveals important new depths and insights. Some have even become my authorized teachers, several of whom are helping facilitate the 2017 Course, Living in Love's Body.
Our web of connection is astonishingly nourishing, intimate, and enlivening – truly a Sanctuary of Love. Having this context to commune and communicate with women around our Planet is deeply meaningful to me personally, and a primary reason I continue to offer the Meditation Secrets for Women Course.
Map KeyAfter a couple of rounds of the Course, inspired by the transformation being expressed, I invited a select number of women to participate in a two-year facilitator training and mentoring program, as a context to go deeper into our Female Energy Ecology. Now there are 13 women who are fully authorized to share this embodied wisdom in their own unique way – this is the circle of Golds. Several others have completed the first year – these are the Emeralds. Those who are or have been members of the global online course we call the Pearls.

Kimberlee OrensteinKimberlee Orenstein’s current mantra is “Bust out, get naked, be inspired.” She wow-fully seeks new dimensions of yoga practice, teaching and directing Yoga Loka in Reno, NV where she is also the catalyst for a local circle of Meditation Secrets for Women that comes together regularly in recognition that we NEED these practices and EACH OTHER to support our passions, pleasures, and inner peace.
A few gems of Kim's embodied wisdom: Opening to space and noticing that a lot happens when simply listening. Remembering that less is more and that doing what we love can actually be a service. Kimberlee is available for one-on-one coaching in, on, and around the meditation secrets.

Sera CrandellSera Crandell has found her calling through the practice of engaging deeply with life and love, whether she is focusing on her personal life or working with her private clients. Her eclectic skills as a yoga and Pilates instructor, bodyworker, meditation guide, and somatic therapist create a broad vision that helps her support every individual in a unique and special way. Coupling this with her personal experience of trauma and some intense life challenges, especially in her family relationships, Sera brings a distinctive wisdom and insight to her work with clients or any group she connects with. She has been a part of the Meditation Secrets for Women group since its inception in 2010, having fallen in love with the practices and Camille’s powerful presence since the day they met in September 2009.

Julia Perch, MDI was born in Ukraine, came to live in America 18 years ago. I am a single mom and a psychiatrist with special interest and experience in Women's and reproductive psychiatry. I have helped many women to heal from traumatic experiences such as abuse, neglect, and other adversity. I especially enjoy working with difficulties in mother-daughter relationships, along with issues of sexuality, intimacy, and sexual polarity in a couple.
I discovered Camille's work some 10 years ago, and it completely revolutionized my understanding of who I am as a woman; what my needs and desires are, and how I can live my life with passion and purpose. I credit Camille and her work for awakening the erotic dimension of my being. Without the Secrets, I honestly don't know if I would ever discover what it's like to be truly, wholly in love, with my entire body and my soul.
Currently I pursue a vocation of a writer, and a storyteller. Most of what I write about was inspired, dreamt, envisioned during my years with Camille, and under her wise and loving guidance. I am available for private sessions incorporating Meditation Secrets for Women.

Yvonne (Vonnie June) KendallMeditation was new to me when I was introduced to MSW. That was over four years ago and today I cannot imagine my life without this meditation practice. I am proof that these secrets can work for everyone. After experiencing a life changing injury, I left the financial industry and started a small business in 2013, a food truck that makes Maryland Style Crabcakes and other family favorites.
MSW provided the tools for me to overcome the daily frustration of not being able to perform like I could before the accident, and joyfully live and love this new version of myself. My current mantra is, "Flowing through each day in Love's Body, on the ride of my life!" I am currently available for private group or individual meditation sessions, to support healing and transformation for others who desire to live an authentic life, built on a foundation of love.
