"Teaching Forging a Feminine Path was mind-blowing, heart-opening, and totally exceeded my expectations. I knew the material was powerful, but I had my doubts about just HOW powerful it could be online, without even meeting the women. It turns out that online was what made this course even possible for most of the women to participate. The anonymity provided the right amount of safety to approach taboo subject matter. Every day women had revelations about the way they saw themselves, how their identity was composed, why some of their experiences were the way they are. One women even had a revelation about her sexual identity. It was honestly so powerful even I could handle believe the impact that women reported on their whole lives, not just their sexual lives. The course and the women in it showed me that it has medicine for each one. I cannot wait to teach this course again and again."Kimberly Johnson, Viva Institute Instructor
"Healing and finding my sexuality was something I wanted to do for awhile, but I never knew where to begin. I had a feeling this course would be a good starting point, but it wasn't until I really got into it that I realized how essential the information would be for my relationship with my sexuality...and to my womanhood in general. After taking Forging a Feminine Path I found my voice and began to enjoy sex more. Instead of just going through the motions, I spoke up about what I wanted and started having the best sex ever. I felt like my connection to my husband grew even stronger, and a month later we got pregnant! I'm so grateful to Kimberly and for her knowledge. Every woman should take this course."Kiersten, California
"I love running into Viva Institute alums all over the country! I recently attended a workshop in Maui, and on the first day of class, I turned to the person to my right to introduce myself, before I could ask her name, she excitedly blurted out, “Bernadette, you’re the reason I’m here - I was in your Viva Institute class!”  So in a room of about 500 people I just happened to sit next to my Viva Institute alumni! Thank you for bringing us all together in such a loving, supportive, mystical, beautiful and educational environment. I am so happy my path led me to you!”Bernadette, Washington, DC
