Honour Abortion Loss - a healing circle
In this circle, we deeply honor and respect all women and their experiences surrounding abortion.
We acknowledge that every pregnancy, including abortions, marks a significant transition in a woman's journey.
Every woman has her own unique reasons for seeking abortion, whether they are related to medical, social, familial, emotional, or economic circumstances.
Within this circle, we create a sacred space to honor abortion as a rite of passage into motherhood, recognizing that women carry profound and personal experiences within their cellular memory, their wombs, and their hearts.
It is common for these experiences to be accompanied by unacknowledged grief, shame, silence, confusion, disbelief, or shock.
We warmly welcome all aspects of you to this circle and ceremony.
Here, we provide a safe and gentle environment to honor the unborn and courageously speak aloud what may have remained unspoken.
We practice active and compassionate listening, holding space for one another with open hearts.
As we come together and acknowledge this rite of passage, we may discover more ease and peace while recognizing the valuable teachings held within our individual experiences.
By co-creating intentional spaces for women to share, process grief, and honor their respective choices, we work to dismantle the cultural taboos and holding patterns that surround abortion.

As a guide, I am deeply passionate about supporting women in reclaiming all aspects of themselves, allowing them to embrace their full feminine power.
My own lived experiences of two pregnancies ending in terminations have profoundly shaped the woman I am today, fueling my commitment to this important work.

Reflections from previous Honouring Abortion Circle + Ceremony:
"The choice to attend the circle felt important, although it didn't necessarily feel easy. However, once settled into the welcoming space with women who each have their own experiences to bring, I knew I was in the right place. Arahni established and held the space so beautifully, so that I felt safe in my body and in my expression."
"I learnt that the judgements I place on myself and on others are often not truth. I learnt that it is important to share my story in the way it presents in the moment. I learnt that much wisdom and healing can come from being in a safe and altered state with other women, and in storytelling." Anna
