Sisters, let’s come together.
I want to be in circle with you, and I know you might just need the same thing. Whether or not are in your menstruating years, if you would like to connect to the feminine energy inherent in all of us, I invite you to join my workshop series, with other likeminded people. I love to hold a safe space for connection and comfort, to feel and be heard, to listen and to share. 2019 is the year of ‘together’, and I am so pleased to offer this opportunity to you.
With the guidance of yoga and herbs, we will explore each season's energies/qualities and connect these to the woman’s reproductive/menstrual cycle. This is crucial for all of us to move forward and balance the masculine energy that is currently more prominent in our society. Our society expects us to live and work according to the masculine cycle, which is only 24 hours, compared to the women’s cycle which is a full month. What would happen if we (all people) switched the way we work, socialise and live to realign the feminine energy?
This sprouts from the ancient wisdom that the menstrual cycle, which includes both menses and ovulation, is linked to nature's own cycles. When we tune into these rhythms, we find healing, more freedom and more appreciation for our periods and all aspects of our cycle.
Each gathering will be part-yoga part-herbal tea blending workshop suited to each season:
Yoga movement - lunar flow, yin yoga
Womb-connection through mudra (hand gestures), mantra (chants/sounds), pranayama (breathwork)
Workshop a host of herbs that are safely supportive of women's health
Explore the benefits of herbs suited to your needs
In a creative circle together, blend a personalised tea mix to take home
Our lives and world can be filled with so much change and unsettling circumstances, not unlike every other generation before us. Our concerns and struggles and happiness are all real to us today, just as they were for our ancestors, who used to come together in circle all the time.
Women coming together is powerful. We need it now just as our ancestors did. When we sit in circle, we lift each other up + bring light and positivity.
We can share, support and connect over the year. I will share my tips + tools, and tap into the ways to:
Feel more grounded as we are connected to Source, to Mama Gaia, the Earth and its rhythms
Allow our cycle to dictate our day to day choices as we apply the seasons' qualities to different phases of our cycle
Become more aware of our menstrual health and take ownership of our health concerns to heal and feel more at ease with any menstrual discomfort
Feel more empowered and in-control, to make choices based on our body's needs/internal expectations, even though it may not meet external expectations
Appreciate and see all phases of our cycle as opportunities to learn from our month-to-month choices
Join me for a year of connection and synchronicity with the seasons
