This event is for all women who wish to reclaim the power of their original blood rite - Menarche. Sounds serious? It truly is, particularly for the vast number of women who aren't even aware they've missed something so intrinsic to their sense of self.
In times long ago a woman's monthly cycle was revered, and girls were welcomed into the fold of womanhood with a ceremony when they commenced bleeding. This assured them of the blessings of their bodies and promoted a deep sense of acceptance. It helped our girls to trust and nurture their bodies. Today, in our busy, 'just get on with it' society, this honouring has been forgotten, with many women left disconnected from themselves, and the other women in their community.
The reflective nature of the Moontime Awakening Ceremony takes us back to honour the young girl within each of us, who was denied such acknowledgement, and in many cases left to muddle her way through the transition of girl to young lady without the true support of other women.
This is a chance to reclaim that connection - regardless of your current place in a woman's cycle, menstruating, peri or even post menopausal, you are welcome to this restorative form of self healing.
This ceremony has been designed as a group ceremony, as sharing this experience with other women is vital in the process of witnessing and blessing our innate gifts of womanhood.

Words from a recent Moontime Awakening Ceremony participant:
"It was such an honour to connect with you and other beautiful women during our ceremony yesterday. You are offering an amazing opportunity to women who haven’t experienced this rite of passage, to come together in a safe, warm and peaceful place to experience what every woman deserves. To any woman drawn to this, I highly recommend it!"
From time to time I run group Moontime Awakening events which you may attend on your own, or with a friend, numbers are generally capped at ten participants to ensure a relaxed, gentle space where each woman feels heard and accepted. Please visit my upcoming events page for current offerings or consider e-mailing me to register your interest in future events.
If you would prefer to book your own closed ceremony with a group of women you know and with whom you would like to strengthen your sisterhood bond, please contact me. This is an ideal ceremony for friends and relatives of mixed generations with flexibility around location and participant numbers. Experience has shown that groups of 4-12 women create a wonderful experience for most. You may like to consider this as an alternative celebration for a significant birthday or time of renewal.
The fee for a closed/private Moontime Awakening Ceremony does vary depending on your location and number of participants, and prices start from $600 for a 3 hour ceremony - this allows for travel within 20km of Menai NSW. I am open to travelling further for your private group ceremony for an additional travel fee. If you have any questions, please get in touch via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have never done anything like this before, never 'sat in circle' with other women, never found the space to speak openly about things you wish you could, let this be your opportunity. Let this be a gentle and nourishing awakening to the 'something more'.
