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

Autumn Equinox Ceremony

 Calling all Wemoon!: Its that time of year again for a Wemoon’s Circle to celebrate and recognise Autumn and the gifts that she brings.  The heat and long days of summer are over and we are now experiencing the wind down and shorter days of Autumn.  This time of year is perfect to take a look at what we have achieved over the last 6 months, and whether we are still going in the direction we want.  Have we created what we needed over the last few months?  Have we created excess of what we needed?  Are there things that are now outdated and need to be let go of?  Do we have gifts to share physically and also with our wisdom and learning’s over this last summer?  Autumn is a perfect time to let things go… clean out cupboards and give away clothes that we do not need anymore  – and to share the fruit from our trees and gardens!   It is also the time to let go of old emotions we do not need, and old ways of being with ourselves.  

Autumn is also a time of gratitude as we reap the rewards of our efforts, and we can now stop and take stock of where we have been and where we are going.

Come and join Samantha Miccallif and I in celebrating this time of year with a women’s circle.  This is the perfect time for you if you need some time out and some clarity on your life and your priorities.  Do you need a clearer vision on how to nourish yourself or how to direct yourself right now?  Do you need to let go of things holding you back, or needing to make space in your life for something new?  This might be the perfect thing.  A beautiful opportunity to connect with yourself and other women, learn about the cycles of life and Mother Nature, and go away with new space and clarity within yourself…

When –  Sunday 25th March
Time –  1.45 pm – 4pm sharp
Cost – $25
Where – Fiona’s Aldgate practice.  (Address given upon booking.)

Please note that this is a beautiful circle to bring daughters (above age 11/12), sisters, mothers and best friends!

Please RSVP ASAP as numbers are limited.

Spring energy special offers

Spring is here with the ups and down of Spring weather!  One week we have gorgeous warm days in the 20’s, then back we are to cooler days and cold evenings again.  As I sit in my office and look out onto our land, I see the trees now bursting through in bud, and the fruit blossoms coming out in full bloom.  I love spring as I get to head back out into the garden and revisit my weedy flower beds and vegetable patch!  I love the feeling of having more energy, waking with more light, and being able to go for a run without long sleeves on!  Do you love spring too?  Read on for our Spring Equinox Celebration happening this weekend and ways to get back into that routine of looking after the body and eating well. (And remember that I also have Eftpos/ Credit Card facilities too!)  **Special offer below!**


Winter Blues are over!  Time to revisit that body!

Life is a cycle.  We have seasonal cycles, moon cycles, life/age cycles, and for women, we have menstrual cycles.  With these cycles are the ebbs and flows of life energy.  In the seasonal cycle, Winter is that time to hibernate, stay still, warm, inside and go within with more for contemplation and rest.  Now that we are in spring, it is the time to move that energy outwards again.  Most people feel the change without thinking about it.  They clean out cupboards, start going for walks, lighten the type of meals they eat, start thinking about socialising more.  These are all natural rhythms of human beings adjusting to the change in energy.  By embracing this spring energy and considering goals and changes we wish to make in our lives, this is the perfect time to re-establish routine and begin to reacquaint ourselves with our bodies.  The energy of this time is to support your goals, and desires and will encourage you to get active again.

Spring is a great time to look at our eating habits, how we eat, and how much we eat.  Its also a super time to get back on the bike, take some bush walks, go camping, and generally get outdoors again.  Its also the perfect time to start your massage routine again.  As bodies begin to thaw (so to speak!) and we are wanting to exercise more, we need to get the blood and lymph flowing again and ease the muscle aches and pains associated with renewed exercise.  Massage is great for this, and also for toxin release, so people who want to diet at this time find that regular massage supports their bodies in the weight loss process, and eases its workload in detoxifying.  Massage is also incredibly relaxing, eases anxiety and promotes deeper sleep, deeper breathing and clearer mental capacity.

To support you in your process of getting fit, healthy and ready for spring,  I am offering 15%  off all appointments as an encouragement to revisit the body, send it some love and begin to reacquaint yourself with a great massage.  This offer is only valid once per client, and is only valid until 30th September.  There are not many spots left, so get in quick to avoid disappointment.  This is my way of treating you all to a spring celebration! (Only valid for bookings made between 20/9 – 30/9.  Not valid for gift vouchers or 5.45/6 pm time slots
