April 4th- may 9th
There will always be obstacles in the river of our lives. Those which threaten our very rite to choose, to express & to proceed and yet no matter the storm that swirls about us, we will always have access to the greatest source of empowerment within our very blood.
Trace the cycle and the seasons held within your body will reveal the secrets that only you can know. Begin to predict and prepare for when the mood may swing, or the time to nestle and nurture is best. Know when to protect, when to unfurl and when we are most fiery & fertile. Through temperature, texture and self reflection we begin to understand the map or our internal rhythms so that we may carry them out into the world. In knowing our bodies we root down into speaking our truth, maintaining healthy boundaries & trusting in our inner guidance.
So whether you are looking to understand your body, find answers to the seemingly crazy and unpredictable shifts in energy, creativity and mood or you would like to familiarize yourself with the fertile soil which lies within you… come gather in this 6 week journey into all things womb.
This gathering is being called for the Women who wish to:
* Deeply listen to the language of our bodies
* Transcend our deepest wounds into our greatest teachings
* Stake claim to our Rite to Direct our Sexuality, our Fertility + our Creativity
*Strengthen our foundation in order to show up more freely to speak, to redefine + to stand in the Feminine
In order to reclaim our blood & our body, we must first learn to listen. When we put down the sword + the shield, we willingly surrender to the depths of our vulnerability. In solidarity with other women, we may begin to translate the language of our bodies unadulterated by patriarchy, by the media & by the memory of countless women who came before us who were silenced & subjugated.
It is also important to consider that not all Women wish to utilize their creative power to reproduce. Within our pelvic bowl we possess an incredible potency for both creation & destruction and for this reason this is where all things begin + end.
While we are redefining relationships, sexuality & gender roles, We as Women have the power to choose how we want to wield our bodies, with whom we choose to share them with & in doing so, it is of the utmost importance to know when & how to be safe, supported & self assured.
"By Way of The Moon" is intended to be an introduction into tuning into the cycle so we may unveil the potential of what lies beneath. To understand our internal mysteries we must ride the waves of emotion, memory & each symptom of wisdom. Through guiding our attention inward we will follow the entire cycle, illuminating each season & transition we move through in order to heed the many facets of our menstrual tide. The moment we begin to seek significance & correlation between our mood, our body and our environment we have the opportunity to recognize patterns within the first 2 months.
Our 6 weeks together will cast a circle, from which support, reflection + accountability will permeate the experience. Although the journey inward may be wrought by shadow, pain or discomfort, behind every obstacle lies the place of new beginning and it is there that will shall find reverence for both the light & the dark in one another.
To maintain the solid & intimate container...Space is limited to 13 women.
Each Wednesday we will gather for a teaching & discussion.
Each week will be guided by an Archetypal Herbal Ally.
