Yoni Jade Egg
Workshop & Ceremony
Facilitated by Rachel Santos
Saturday, November 2
Lucid Body House
230 Lexington Avenue 2nd Floor
(between 33rd & 34th Street)
The Jade Egg is the crown jewel practice of Tao Tantric Arts. It originated in ancient China, with the first records dating back to the era of the Yellow Emperor, who was taught by 3 famous female sexual advisors. The traditional practices were passed down from priestesses and courtesans of the Imperial Court, closely guarded as a secret “Elixir of Immortality” for many centuries.
Jade Eggs are used internally in a woman’s vagina (AKA Yoni) to channel sexual energy for healing, wholeness, vitality, creative energy and blissful, conscious love-making.
*This class includes a lecture and time to learn and practice the exercises.

Tao Tantric Arts bring us into harmony with nature, our bodies, and our sexuality. Tao Tantra is a treasure chest of tools and techniques for cultivating creative life force energy. Our sexual energy can be channeled to enhance our physical health vitality, creativity and spiritual awakening. This sacred energy which creates all of life is our common language with Divinity.

Below are the qualities of Jade, Rose Quartz and Obsidian, along with some notes in italics from my personal experience working with them:
When choosing your egg, Rachel highly recommends seeing and holding each one, and allowing the one that says, “Me!” in your hand to choose you. It’s more kinesthetic (feeling sense) than analytic (thinking sense).
This is the classic mother stone, the one traditionally used for thousands of years and highly revered in Chinese culture for promoting vitality and radiant health. Jade is one of the more precious gemstones, like diamond, it is very dense. It is a one of the hardest materials, and can be polished to an extremely shiny smooth surface.
Jade promotes our efforts to cultivate purity of intention and benevolence; a transformative stone supporting our striving for spiritual evolution and promoting centeredness in this process, uniting heaven and earth within the human heart.
The Jade crystal is also known as the stone of eternal youth.
While all the gemstones are related to Mother Earth where they come from, Jade carries a particular vibration and association of healing Mother Love. It is known as a “yin” stone and helps to tonify yin, promote longevity, purity and lightness of body. Jade absorbs negativity and impure energy very easily- and thus must be cleansed regularly. Especially when you first acquire jade, it should be cleansed thoroughly. Also it should be cleansed regularly when using jade to heal or move through some difficult emotions.
It is a protective stone. Nephrite jade protects against negative entities.
Rachel finds Jade Eggs to be regenerative, wonderful for all-purpose mother-love-healing practices, very full, and versatile in terms of intentions for use.
Rose quartz has been used in love rituals and ceremonies for centuries. A member of the quartz family, this crystal is made up of silicon dioxide. It’s sweet, soft pink hue is the result of both the many, tiny inclusions of pink fibers, known as dididumortierite, within the glassy stone that keep it from being totally transparent, and irradiation. This irradiation is also why rose quartz should be kept out of the sun, so as to not loose its pretty shade. Though it’s thought of as the stone of love, it’s not just romantic love that rose quartz crystal embodies. The rose quartz stone meaning is one of unconditional love. The way it facilitates love entering your life is through it’s ability to bring your consciousness to a higher level. Helping you to forgive, understand and see fights or situations from a different perspective, rose quartz healing properties will imbue you with the wisdom to deepen your connection with your partner. In that same way, rose quartz properties provide gentle energy that assists you in recognizing your own need for compassion. It allows you to see that you deserve forgiveness and understanding from yourself. Associated with the element of water, rose quartz healing properties are naturally fluid. They wash out toxic energies and emotions that you have trapped inside of you.
Negativity which you have been holding onto will flow out as pure thoughts of unequivocal love flow in. It may come as no surprise that this crystal is associated with the heart chakra. The rose quartz property of restoring trust is one of its most powerful and important uses. The heart cannot move on from hurt into renewed trust until it fully understands and accepts past situations. Rose quartz remedies this by dispelling feelings of fear and suspicion which poison the outlook. Healing with the feminine energy of rose quartz stimulates the heart chakra, and brings it into balance with the third eye and crown chakras. Working in harmony, these chakras to connect to the curative spirit of mother earth. This spirit teaches that the wounds of the past create beautiful landscapes, and there is always new love to follow acceptance.
In Rachel’s experience using a Rose Quartz Egg brings in the qualities of gentleness, grace, loving kindness and compassion, Quan Yin energy. It really activates the heart chakra and is great for forgiveness practices.
A powerful protection stone, Obsidian helps identify your dark side so that its healing properties can clear it away from your psyche. Instead of hiding from our inner truth, Obsidian shines a light on the negativity and clears it away, helping us to choose the path leading towards light and love. Like a spiritual disinfectant, it’s ready to deep clean the counter tops of your inner spirit, leaving you feeling light, refreshed, and in control of your destiny.
In Rachel’s experience-
This gemstone is the most Yin of the three. I was intimated by it’s mysteries and didn’t use one until several years into my practice. Once I did, I was surprised by the sweetness of it. It is like opening and entering a portal into the abyss, and finding the abyss to be incredibly soothing and welcoming. It carries a vibration that helps in drawing things out, and is therefore highly recommended for clearing work. It can be very powerful for release of trauma, including ancestral trauma.
