I’m writing this right in the middle of our Easter holidays, chaos of children all around me! In the midst of the chaos I find it vital to weave the sacred and ceremony into the mundane, whether its a quiet walk in nature, making my moon time offerings at my moon tree, crafting medicine bundles, adding to my menstrual staff, sitting with oracle cards…. all of these bring moments of stillness and gratitude into our family life.
I was honoured to hold the Thirteen Moons closing circle at the weekend, a day filled with ritual, ceremony and lots of laughter as we said goodbye to the group. As part of the circle we have taken part in countless rituals and ceremonies, all of which I hope the women will take and use themselves and share with others. If you would like to partake in some ceremony and ritual with me, there’s still time to join my Mid Girl and Menarche Passages where I teach bundle making, medicine bags, making your menstrual staff and much more!

This group will be closing at the end of April, so do join us to work deeply with your Mid Girl and Menarche girl, healing our inner girl, celebrating her menarche, giving her the ceremony she needed/wished for, listening to our body wisdom and our cycles and supporting one another! Rachael will lead you through these two thresholds, tenderly holding and guiding your mid girl and menarche girl, as we create space for healing. You can take your time to go through the work in your own time, at your own pace.
