Moon Lodge Workshops

It is time… Women are Awakening.

Last year I was given the opportunity to journey for a year with the School of Shamanic Womancraft when I completed their Four Seasons Journey.  I drove interstate 6 times and spent 5 x 4 day weekends with them and participated in my second 10 day Vision Quest.  I have not shared so much of this journey as it is deeply personal, however it has truely increased the potency of the work I do both on myself and with others.    I am now helping to bring this work to South Australia.  In April SSW teacher Sequoia Krop will be traveling over from NSW and is introducing the work with two 1 day long workshops.  Both workshops can be taken independently, with no prerequisite, and no future commitment.  The two workshops are ‘Moonsong’ and ‘The Shamanic Dimensions of Pregnancy’.  We have limited space for both days, so if you are interested, please book ASAP.  Tickets are being advertised elsewhere and are already selling.

Moonsong

Reclaiming Feminine Power through Reconnection with Women’s Mysteries.

A one-day workshop for women.

Long lost to our culture is the trust in life, deep knowing and connection to all things inherent in the wisdom of the seasons and cycles of a Woman’s life. Every Woman has direct access to this and can find a sense of balance and harmony missing from the sanitised, disinfected and censored modern life. Our blood cycles connect us to each other, to the Earth, and to the Moon, yet we perpetuate a mythology that disregards this.

Hearing the stories and using ritual and ceremony, we can heal our past wounds, create new attitudes to our bodies and new ways forward for ourselves, our daughters and their daughters.  This workshop opens up the doorway to understanding the true connectedness of our menstrual cycle, the moon cycle, the seasons of the year and a woman’s life cycle.  It will shift your understanding of our bodies, and support you in creating scared time for yourself each month.  A must for any woman on a soul journey.

Date:  April 21st
Location: Moon Lodge, Aldgate
Time: 9-5pm

The Shamanic Dimensions of Pregnancy

This workshop focuses on the shamanic dimensions of pregnancy, in other words: what lies beneath…  This one-day workshop is for all women – pregnant, planning to be and birthworkers – delving into the shamanic dimensions of pregnancy and birth.

With prior preparation contemplating our life experiences, we will do some shamanic processes to understand the origins of our beliefs, attitudes and fears around birth, seeing the connection between how we were born, our menarche (first period) and the stories about the women in our family, as well as any experiences of pregnancy and giving birth we have had so far.

Then a Letting Go of Fear process and fire ritual and a shamanic drum journey to meet the baby, soul baby or Inner Goddess, to seek guidance, clarity, information etc.

This workshop is for all women. You don’t have to be pregnant or planning to be and there is no prior experience necessary.  

Date: April 22nd
Location : Moon Lodge, Aldgate
Time: 9-5pm

Bringing The Womb Blessing to Adelaide

I have just arrived back in Adelaide after the Moon Mother training in Lausanne, Switzerland.  This training allows me to now offer The Womb Blessing for ladies in Adelaide!  Developed by Amanda Gray, author of Red Moon, the Womb Blessing is a beautiful, gentle and powerful female energetic awakening session.

This work supports women to be more authentic in their nature, awakening, energizing and healing the three main female energy centers, thereby increasing a woman’s ability to love.  As well as helping to clear old patterns and blocks, the Womb Blessing energizes the womb energy center, clearing depleted energy and bringing a sense of completeness.  The Womb Blessing also brings increased self -empowerment, a sense of peace, self acceptance and self love.

The Womb Blessing is performed in a chair and is similar to a Reiki initiation in its sequence, but is focused specifically on the awakening of dormant female energies.  Miranda Gray’s book Red Moon talks about these energies and how connecting to the menstrual cycle and bringing this awareness into our lives helps improve our relationship with ourselves and our cyclic nature.  Each time I see clients for Mayan Abdominal Therapy I am alerted to how much of a ‘taboo’ our menstrual cycle is seen and how this impacts our bodies…

Along with The Womb Blessing, I am also incorporating the Womb Healing into my work with women and their journey for healthy menstruation and fertility.  The Womb Healing is a shorter energy balance and is a beautiful way of supporting the female energy.  Both The Womb Blessing and Womb Healing will be available from July.  The Womb Blessing is a stand alone 45 min appointment, or it can be included into a 90 min appointment when connected to the Mayan Abdominal Therapy or a Holistic Massage.  The Womb healing will become a regular part of my Mayan Abdominal Therapy appointments and another tool I am able to use when needed in Holistic Massage sessions.

It’s a win-win approach, as women have gained a source of income and new skills, and their female customers now have access to an essential hygiene product.

As well as addressing women’s practical needs, PLAN for Girls is also promoting better awareness among women and men to reduce embarrassment, cultural practices or taboos around menstruation that negatively affect the lives of women and girls.
