Supporting Reclamation of Truth
It stirred up old traumas, brought us face-to-face with fear, and prompted questioning about the course of our lives. It was an opportunity for a major awakening.
The “great pause” of the pandemic opened up questions about how we are actually living our lives. Do you feel a future life calling to you?
Can you relate to any of the following?
Hi. I’m Betsy, a licensed psychologist, certified yoga and meditation teacher, author, and momma of 3.
My pandemic was especially challenging as I was forced to face things in my life, both internal and external, that were no longer working well.
At a particularly painful period in the pandemic when I felt especially powerless and lost, a mentor of mine suggested we meet and do some meditation. We sat together for a long guided meditation, and during it, something unexpected happened.
I felt an opening in my heart, a sense of warmth and support behind me, and heard very clearly, “Please stop worrying about your daily life. The important thing to know is that you are here in service to the Divine Feminine, the Goddess.”
This experience was so real, so visceral, and so comforting that I couldn’t ignore it. But what did this mean? Being in service to the Divine Feminine?
In true seeker fashion, for nearly a year, I dove into learning everything I could about the Goddess. This led me to see how healing my inner feminine was well and good, but that I also needed to work with the masculine energy within. This “sacred marriage” of my inner masculine and feminine led me to a beautiful space of vulnerability and strength that I had never known.
I have a sense that at this pivotal point in history, many of us need to reclaim our truth, which is supported by a balanced masculine and feminine. Learning to balance the seemingly opposite energies of rest and work, logic and intuition, kindness and boundaries are what will take us to a more evolved, peaceful state of being.
RECLAIM is a 6-month online program based on the Heroine’s Journey, or a roadmap of healing and transformation that takes you down deep into your soul and allows you to find and reclaim your truth.
This course sets out the roadmap of the heroine’s journey through 6 phases:
Each month, we will explore these phases and learn the delicate art of integrating the masculine and feminine within using the tools of depth psychology, yoga, meditation, hypnosis, shadow work, inner child work, dream work, and group support.
The final outcome of creating a balanced inner feminine and inner masculine is a refined discernment that allows you to better see what serves your highest good, and what limits it.
This workshop is for anyone who feels ready for or is already in the midst of transformational change. This may look like a job change, a relationship ending, an empty nest, the death of a loved one, retirement, diagnosis, or identity shift. It is also for the person who fears change, but knows they are stuck and is curious about getting unstuck.
Although this course will explore the “heroine’s journey,” it is not just a journey for women. However you identify, you are welcome. No matter whether you identify as male, female, or trans, all humans who live in patriarchal cultures are carrying an inherent imbalance and could benefit from learning how to nurture the positive qualities vs. the toxic qualities of masculine and feminine energies.

Betsy Rippentrop, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist, certified yoga and meditation teacher, and reiki master who uniquely blends science, psychology, mysticism, and spirituality into her yoga classes and private therapy work.
Dr. Betsy is especially adept at translating complex concepts into practical tools that can be embodied. She believes in the necessity of taking what we learn intellectually and living it out through our bodies and life. It is not enough to “learn” with the mind, rather it is essential to act it out through the body.
She owns Heartland Yoga, maintains a psychology practice focused on integrating yoga into treatment, has authored numerous academic papers on the mind-body connection, and is the author of Chakra Healing: Renew Your Life Force with the Chakras’ Seven Energy Centers.
RECLAIM takes place September 19–March 21,2023. The LIVE online class occurs each Monday, starting September 19 at 6:00PM CST for 6 months. There are occasional Mondays we will not meet.
Because all the classes are recorded and you will also receive links to the practices, you can essentially do the course at any time. You have lifetime access to this material. However, online access to Betsy via the private FB page only happens for the duration of the 6 months.
Each week contains 60 minutes of content. You will be given additional “soul work” such as journal prompts, meditation, and contemplation that you can do if interested. If you choose to be a part of a small group, this will add on an additional 90 minutes per month. Finally, there is a cacao ceremony once per month for 60 minutes that you can choose to join.
Yes! All sessions are recorded in video and audio format so you can go back and listen at any time.
During the course, there will be several Q&As where Betsy will take live questions and have discussions with those on the call. If you desire more contact, you can add on the “SUPPORTIVE” option for 5 group sessions (once per month). You will be placed in a group with 10 or fewer people and meet for 90 minutes once per month. You can also add the “PERSONALIZED” option which includes both the group experience plus 2 50-minute individual sessions with Betsy.
Yes, all of Betsy’s weekly yoga classes (Tuesday & Saturday at 9 AM CST) are included in the price. You will receive the links for these classes. If there is space to attend live with Betsy in the studio, you can attend on a first-come, first-serve basis.
A big part of this course is discernment and intention setting for your life. New moons energetically are the ideal time to create intention so for every new moon during this 6-month course we will meet for an hour online for a cacao ceremony and intention setting. Cacao is a plant medicine that opens the heart and provides a beautiful seeding ground for asking and receiving. You will receive a box at the start of the program with 6 individual packs of raw, ceremonial grade cacao to use for each ceremony.
It is unknown if this program will ever be offered again. Betsy tends to teach material that is alive and moving through her own life. The content of this program is extremely relevant for Betsy right now, which is why it is the ideal time to teach it. It does seem important that his work will take place during the darkest months of the year in the northern hemisphere, as much of the work is depth psychology and shadow work, leading to eventual rising and returning to the light.
