Celebrating Women from Menarche to Menopause…..newsletter

Hello you beauties!

Well I’m brimming with love and gratitude after a day honouring is sister with a beautiful ceremony as part of her red tent retreat. For many years I have held a vision of a retreat place for women to come and rest, be cared for, be celebrated and be witnessed and I am blessed with an amazing community of women who have co-created a welcoming space that is now full of strong healing energy from the many, many rituals and ceremonies that have been held in this sacred womens temple space. I had no idea when I fundraised for the Red Tent yurt where this journey would take me, I hoped that it would be a moon lodge space but for it to have become the hub of women gatherings, holding circles for women and girls, menarche ceremonies and mid woman rituals for the last four years is beyond my wildest dreams! And on my own journey mothering in peri-menopause I’m feeling called more to open this space out to women in need of retreat. If this is you…see my Honouring the Womb page.

and a little reminder…in honour of resting my own womb, I’m closing the shop while I go on holiday, so if you need anything urgently, get your orders in asap! I will be closed from 5th April- 22nd.

On The Blog

An in depth post about my Red Girl teachings…How many girls are taught that their menstruation is her power? How would your relationship to your cycle have been different if you had been celebrated at menarche? What if society was set up to support women living by their cycle instead of encouraging us to ignore it, medicate it and carry on as normal? What if girls that were celebrated at menarche grew up to be women who loved their wombs, who celebrated each bleed and honoured their cycle, who birthed naturally, who walked into their menopause journey with power?
It is my belief that together we can create a new culture that sees womens rites of passage as our birthright, that honours our cycle, supports womens choices when they come to birth and offers alternatives to medicating our hormones!

How can we create this new pattern? By starting with ourselves, going back, 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! By recovering and initiating ourselves we can hold our daughters and sons in wisdom and strength. Read more….
