Do you think of yourself as a ‘woman” or a W.O.M.A.N.? “
“Women are exploited, biologically, sociologically and personally,” says internationally-known keynote motivational and inspirational speaker Gina Cloud, who coined the powerful acronym W.O.M.A.N. – Wild, Open, Magical, Authentically-empowered, Nectar.
Gina’s dynamic, heartfelt presentations put this formula to work as she shares her wisdom and breakthrough perspective on women, plus little-known facts about alternative approaches to health, beauty and body/mind. “It’s time for images of woman that are woman-made,” says Gina. “The true beauty of who we are has been lost or exploited by the media. Beauty is not skin deep – it’s soul-deep and spirit-fed. When you know this, you can reclaim your empowerment from the inside out.”
An expert on natural beauty, women’s issues, and women’s health, Gina has spent 25 years developing new concepts about the powerful – and often misunderstood, misrepresented, and even despised – biological cycles of women’s lives, and her personal journey into self-mastery proves that women can and do heal themselves. The result is an alchemical blending of techniques from every part of the world that spark self-transformation through self-empowerment, and the outcome is deep and beautiful in the areas of self-love, self-respect, self-esteem, and self-confidence – all through the powerful medium of the Feminine.
Gina’s inspiring talks connect women and men alike with the mystery that is woman – her essence, beauty and truth. Her enlightening presentations explode the myths and misinformation put forth by our culture, the media, and the mainstream medical community, and her new formula for becoming who you truly are is part goddess, part feminist, part revolutionary – and all W.O.M.A.N.
You’ll learn Gina’s secrets for nutritional rejuvenation, how to avoid chemicals in the environment and food supply, and little-known techniques that restore health and beauty. And her talks are not just for women. Her keynote presentations for men reveal all they need to know about women’s issues and how to build intimacy with the women in their lives. Audiences leave her eye-opening presentations with a deep sense of self-love, self-confidence and self-healing, reconnected with their feminine power, and open to exciting new perspectives and possibilities for their lives.

As women in a society that emphasizes beauty and youth, we are bombarded with anti-aging media campaigns everywhere we turn, and as we age, we come to believe that we lose value. “We see anti-aging promoted everywhere, but in fact, there is no such thing!!” says Gina. “We can’t stop aging or reverse it, and when we try, we just create more stress in our already stressful lives. In fact, many of the ways we try to fight aging are actually damaging to our health and well-being.”
In this talk, you’ll learn how to age gracefully and naturally with a focus on health and self-esteem, so that you stop betraying yourself by chasing the mainstream concept of “beauty” and embrace your own inherent beauty instead. You’ll learn Gina’s inside/out approach to health and beauty and discover why the deepest beauty that a woman can embody comes from her connection to her true, authentic self. How you feel inside determines whether you radiate beauty, and you’re guaranteed to leave this motivating talk feeling beautiful to yourself – and to the world!
In this signature talk based on Gina’s book, W.O.M.A.N.: A New Definition, Gina introduces her audience to the principles and methods for living a W.ild O.pen, M.agical, A.uthentically-empowered, N.ectar-filled life. You’ll experience the meaning of each letter in this powerful acronym and learn ways to live more fully and freely-empowered as a woman in your inner life, your sexuality, your body and your relationships as we explore…
Living W.ild – How to live in integrity with your Wild Woman, that inner self that embraces your sexuality fully and freely.
Living O.pen – How to open from the heart to find your feminine strength and essence.
Living M.agically – Celebrating the wisdom of your body, from your menstrual cycle to empowered birth, to the wisdom of menopause. We have gifts as women through the magic of our bodies that most women NEVER experience, and you’ll learn how to connect with this vital and integral part of being a W.O.M.A.N.
Living A.uthentically-Empowered – Who are you REALLY? What is your truth, your beauty, your gift from the inside? Learn how to uncover and share that gift with the world.
Living as N.ectar – Reconnect with your beauty, your sensuality, your femininity, joy and playfulness. Find your essential style of expression. You’ll experience the full expression of living all of the above – and it’s already inside you!
Did you know that appearance and body image are the number 1 shame triggers for women? Did you know that women spend most of their expendable income on the “beauty” industry, but in reality it’s the “chasing youth” industry?
“Beautiful is not something you become, it’s something you already are,” says Gina Cloud, who explores beauty as a way of life in this perspective-changing talk. You’ll learn how to access the tools that allow you to strip away the negative programming that our world and society have taught us about beauty – and about ourselves as women.
In this truly life-changing talk, Gina will share with you a perspective unheard of in our modern world and Western culture: the idea that our menstrual cycle is a gift of life and part of the mystery of W.O.M.A.N. And she’ll share her unique redefinition of PMS: Powerful Monthly Sight – a concept that allows women to get clear and honest with themselves monthly, providing us with the opportunity to make important changes in our lives that honor who we truly are. Once you are able to live with these self-honoring truths, your life will change profoundly! You won’t want to miss this empowering perspective on these two much-maligned experiences in women’s lives!
A bold, non-blaming exploration into why men turn to pornography, the hold it can have on their lives, and its effect on their relationships. The journey to authentic empowerment is no different for men than it is for women. Men will learn to look inside to find the key to living a life that honors themselves, the women in their lives, and women and girls in society.
This is a revelatory presentation for men! All the things about women that perplex men are explained, from our menstrual cycle, the PMS that men are all too aware of, the true nature of women’s sexuality, how to communicate effectively with women – and so much more. Gina breaks it all down for men and includes lots of time for Q&A. Her goal is to help men not only live more easily with the women in their lives – wives, girlfriends, sisters, mothers and daughters – but to also honor and support the feminine all around them, and to bring out the honorable man in all men.
