Healing The Maiden, Restoring Elderhood.
This is a body of work that goes deep into the journey of recovering and retrieving our natural power and true essence as women by going back along the map of womanhood to recover our Maidenhood. Journeying back and picking up the threads of our younger years and honouring four important thresholds and natural rites of passage which she went through. Healing, witnessing and celebrating those times in wholeness so your maiden can receive what she never had and bring through her unique gifts and medicine for our beautiful world, Mother Earth and Community. Retrieving her power through shamanic techniques really allows the
soul to become fully intergrated so she can take this wholeness of herself into her Elderhood.
So many Elders are missing from our community due to trauma at a young age, by healing this and really being seen and celebrated in your maidenhood by a circle of women no matter your age is essential for your ability to really express your true self and bring your deep authentic wisdom to the world from menopause and beyond. Healing the Maiden is a beautiful journey which is also valuable for the rites of the Menopause as this threshold really is about any unfinished or unresolved issues surfacing to be acknowledged and healed to enable your transformation into deepening woman to be all that it should be.
This work will then assist you in recovering your inner mentor through this wholeness enabling you to naturally understand and respond to the next generations of women from this healed place gifting them your unique insight into the journey of a young woman.
This is deep and transformative work so to enable us to hold the space in a good way we are creating two Healing the Maiden weekends….the deeper space for those who want to go deeper and who are able to witness the sometimes strong stories from the Maidens of other women that need to be heard and a “beginners” for those who can only touch on it and need to get used to the potent transformational process held within this
Healing the maiden, restoring Elderhood facilitator training.

Sacred world Offering yourself to life – Restoring the outer
Spiral 2. brings us to the natural purpose of women on this earth, which is to be the sacred guardians of life. As we recover ourselves through the ancient practice of soul retrieval during spiral one, we begin to see the bigger picture that we are a culture of soul loss and trauma. The outer is a reflection of the inner, this culture of separation and destruction of nature comes from the fragmentation we feel inside, our loss of connection to nature and our sense of belonging. So spiral 2 starts the work of stepping into our own unique sacred purpose. This has always been there throughout our lives, even in the darkest of times, our soul mission,what calls us. We will begin to gather the threads of our medicine and recreate the village that holds and recognises who we were born to be, enabling us to empower ourselves, embody our medicine and offer ourselves to life.
Work from home – Becoming the sacred guardians of life. Preparation work and becoming native practices.
Circle 4 – Sacred Purpose – 14th/15th November 2020
This weekend we step across the next two thresholds of our maiden years, enabling us to finally step into our womanhood fully, and for those of us crossing menopause to step towards elderhood consciously . We will create two powerful ceremonies, for birth and for woman-becoming which will allow you to feel your sacred purpose fully. Using the tools we have already taught you in spiral 1 to access your deep guidance and healing.
Work from home – Continuing with your heart lodge council and your soul mission work. Becoming native practices
Circle 5 – Restoring the village and the place of the Elders – 12th/13th December 2020
