Girl’s path to Womanhood- Our daughters grow strong
A day of circling and gathering around our daughters age 8 and up.
Turning 8 is the start of a long pilgrimage or journey in which a young girl begins to leave behind her childhood and starts the movement towards Womanhood.
She begins the process of turning away from her inner world and turns towards the outer world….the time when the ebbing and flowing of her wavelike hormones begin. This is the age when women should start gathering around their daughters and sit with them in circle.
We will weave stories, nature connection, Earth awareness, fire, drumming, song and ceremonies to bring teachings of belonging, self discovery, women’s cycles and the map of womanhood to our daughters.
To book me to come and hold a circle with the daughters of your community contact me here. I can work with Mothers and daughters together or Girls alone without their mothers.
Cost per mother and daughter £30, concessions £25: For more info:
We are a core group of 5 women- Rachael, Angharad, Robyn, Jenny and Do. We have been meeting together for over a year; we have put the earth in the centre, opened our hearts, held council and spoken our truth and found our way to holding and creating our Women and Girls Lodge. We bring our bundle of wisdom to share; forest school, play, camaraderie amongst ourselves and the girls, nature connection, play therapy, beautiful crafts, sacred girls lodges, story telling, moon time wisdom, songs and chants, beautiful ceremonies, wise women’s ways…

The Intention of our lodge.
For us it’s about making sure that the next generation is fully and harmoniously integrated into themselves, their bodies, their families, their communities and into nature. So they grow up to be happy, strong, and fully functional for themselves, their tribe and families.
The purpose of this is so life works in a good and becoming way and that this carries on into the future and down the generations.
In traditional tribes they would spend a huge amount of time and energy into holding their young people and initiating them because the cost of not doing that is greater.
So not only are we teaching and guiding them, we are giving them the new pattern and that is what culture is.
We are creating new cultural patterns

This is a circle i have set up for my youngest daughter and am now co facilitating with some beautiful women. We are working together to design and create a unique mentoring program that comes from the unique and beautiful wisdom of the women holding it.
One of the women am privileged to be working closely with is a Wise woman Called Amber Bates who works with Menstrual Cycle Awareness and mentoring.

At the moment in our lodge we are preparing for their girl- woman rites of passage. This is to hold them as they cross the threshold of mid girl on the life spiral. See the work of the wonderful Gail Burkett for the nine passages of the life spiral. Look out on my blog for our journey with this threshold.
