Event description

This free CYCLICAL WISDOM teaching circle will share the foundational map we journey with in the SEEDING WISDOM course FOR MOTHERS & DAUGHTERS (9-12), a year-long transformation coming of age journey.

How can we know ourselves more deeply by tuning in to nature's cycles? This teaching circle explores the wisdom of the cycles.

We can observe the cyclic pattern of birth, growth, full bloom, harvest, decay, death, rebirth, growth, full bloom and so on as it happens all around us, as within so without.

Together we will create an invaluable map. This map helps remind us how the Earth's seasons, our life seasons, the lunar cycle and menstrual cycle are all inter-connected.

This map can teach us to:
* Notice the connection between where we are in our menstrual cycle, our energy levels, emotions arising and our state of mind.
* Simply be with what is happening, and go with the flow, not against it.
* Get creative in how we use our time and energy.
* Celebrate all aspects of ourselves coming into wholeness.

What to bring:
* Journal to write in
* Warm blanket/shawl to cover your body
* Water bottle


About Jo:

Jo has training as an art therapist and transpersonal counsellor.  She has facilitated group workshops for adults and children for over 20 years and utilises creative techniques to enhance the therapeutic relationship.

Jo lives on the South Coast of New South Wales and has found the natural world to be her greatest friend and teacher.  As a young girl she had a special connection to nature and to the land and spent hours "just being" in the natural environment. This love of the natural world deepened as an adult and she discovered as a therapist the value of working restoratively with the land and with earth-based practises.

Through Jo's involvement with ‘Rites of Passage’ work she has found a special joy guiding individuals and groups as they move through life’s transitions and assisting them to find their full potential and true essence.  Jo has come to believe that when someone has a need to understand themselves at a deeper level, they can achieve this through a weaving of the arts such as body movement, stories, archetypes, writing, collage and with earth-base medicine.   In this way a person's psyche strengthens and resolves and reflects back inner wisdom, guidance and healing.

About Arahni:

Arahni began her journey with the School of Shamanic Womancraft in 2013 and is a graduate Teacher of the Four Seasons Journey. Arahni consciously walks her own shamanic path of healing and transformation and serves to re-awaken the innate healing wisdom and soul essence within others.

For 20 years Arahni worked in trauma informed family support centres, refuges, schools and outreach street work with young people and families in therapeutic case work and educational roles. Designing and facilitating peer education programs in sexual assault prevention, domestic violence, alcohol and other drugs and sexual health was a great passion of hers. Over a period of 8 years, she had a specialised role working closely with women and children with lived experiences of domestic violence.

Practising the healing arts of wholistic counselling, shamanic woman-crafting, intuitive body work and compassionate enquiry, she now walks alongside women who seek guidance to orient themselves through change and transformation, from birth to death and other significant life events in between.

In her community and beyond, she offers 1:1 shamanic healing, initiation rites, healing rituals, reclaiming ceremonies, sacred women and mixed gender circles and Seeding Wisdom, a year long coming of age journey for mothers & daughters aged 9-12. She facilitates positive menstrual education, offering a new narrative to young girls as they walk through the threshold of Menarche and beyond.

Arahni lives with her daughter in a place between the escarpment and wild cliffs by the sea in the Illawarra, held by the lands of the Five Islands Dreaming, the Wodi Wodi people of the Dharawal Nation and acknowledges that sovereignty has never been ceded. These lands always were and always will be, Aboriginal land.
