Calling all 10-12 year old girls and their Mums!

I am now preparing for the first Celebration Day for Girls in Adelaide!  I recently conducted this workshop in the UK for a small group of proud mama’s and their daughters.  This is a fabulous workshop for girls and their mums in preparation for their first menstrual cycle.

A Celebration Day for Girls is a one and a half day workshop for 10-12 years old girls with their mother or female carer. This carefully crafted workshop was designed to support girls and mothers at this special threshold in both their lives, and to provide an affirming, grounded and connected celebration of the journey to womanhood.

At the Celebration Day, girls enjoy lively discussion, fun activities, women’s stories and gentle celebration of the magical threshold of puberty and menarche.  Celebration, and positively presented information around these topics has profound impact on body image, emotional health and menstrual experiences, which in turn empowers young women in their relationship, fertility and sexuality experiences later on.

By enabling a healthy and grounded experience of these changes we deeply nourish girls’ self-esteem and self-awareness, well before they are involved in romantic or sexual relationships. In this way we can support a physical and psychological integrity that underpins healthy decision making around relationships, sex and fertility when that time comes, as well as other life choices.

“Thank you so, so, so, so, so much for last Saturday, and for teaching us all about what is on the road ahead of us. I loved what we all made together, and I loved the way you described things in great detail. The workshop was so fun I can’t describe how much! 🙂 P.S I wish I could come again! ;)” – Jasmin, 11

DATE: Saturday 6th August 9.45 – 4pm plus a ‘Mums night’ 3rd August 7-9pm
LOCATION: Aldgate
COST: $130 per Mother/ daughter

Please check the website for more info and contact me if you are interested.  There is a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 12 participants per workshop.

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.
