Going back in time to our menarche is an enlightening experience.
Themes and patterns in our lives become more obvious and so then does choice.
I have had the pleasure of facilitating the menarche ceremonies of two of the young women who came to the Southern Highlands Moonsong this November. In the role of midwife, 13 years ago I also held one of them, when she was 2, up under my arm so she could see over the pool edge, whilst guiding with my other hand, her baby sister, back toward her mother as she was being born in the water! Its a beautiful thing to have the babies coming to the workshops now as young women!
There is something magical and very familiar with women of different ages sitting together in a circle, sharing stories and experiences. Moonsong provided lots of opportunities to do that, in a gentle and supportive environment - plus so much more. The weekend with Jane was refreshing, informative and hugely inspiring.Through learning about the moon cycle and life cycles of a woman, I have got in touch with my inner womanand recognized how powerful She was. Yay! This is a workshop that every woman should do.
