WOW! It’s been months since I last posted on here..and so much has happened! And is STILL happening.
I am pleased to say that I gave birth to a gorgeous, healthy baby boy at the end of August. He’s now nearly 2 months old and an absolute delight!
Amidst the somewhat challenging pregnancy and unexpected emergency Caesar premature birth, we are still working!!! The Deepening has been running since May..and attendance and feedback has been great! We’ve had both women and men at every gathering!!! (Attached is the flyer however we are just about to schedule for 2017)
I am also still doing other work, such as assisting with some beautiful retreats in the mountains…continuing with my henna tattooing…and about to schedule some shamanic medicine drum making workshops for 2017. So we seem to have struck a balance between parenting and working with our community!
What’s in the pipeline:
- cacao ceremonies
- medicine drum making
- The Deepening
- ‘Whispers from the Womb’ women’s circle
If you’d like to go onto the mailing list please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Blessings…and we hope to see you soon!

I’ve had quite a journey this past 12 months. And so many other people are too. Astrologically, we are being asked (forced!?) to let go of all that no longer serves us, to make way for the NEW!! That can be scary but also very exciting if you are prepared to surrender to what IS!
If you’d like to keep up with what is happening astrologically, I highly recommend you subscribe to Kaypacha’s newsletter, as he sends out weekly video reports in language that even I can understand! LOL Here’s the link
And if you would like to read a little about what I have been up to, check this article out. It’s my most recent piece on conscious uncoupling and letting go!
Here are a few ore photos to accompany the piece too.
Ahhh……it’s a few months off yet, but as deposits hit our account and people step up for our February medicine drum making workshop, the excitement is building this end! I’m feeling that this workshop is going to be full! Yay!
The workshop is open to women and men, and will be facilitated by myself and Karl Griesberg (SOTEMS). It’s such an amazing weekend, learning about ourselves, birthing our own shamanic medicine drums, connecting on the physical and spirit realms. It is suitable for adults and teenagers.
This workshop will be at Circle of Life at East Gosford.
For further details please see the flyer below.
I am so so SO pleased to announce that I have finally set a date for my Central Coast based “Spiritual Practice of Menstruation” workshop. I can’t wait to share all this awesome information with you….sit in sacred space together….create ritual and ceremony…and see you all blossom!!

- rituals for celebrating and acknowledging our blood
- menstrual and lunar cycles
- daily, seasonal and life cycles
- and whatever else comes up in Circle! (how yummy!!)

We have decided to postpone our SPRING workshop, and instead run it in the SUMMER. It all felt a little rushed getting home from travelling and having had no time to advertise. We have taken some time to breathe!!
Here’s the updated flyer. Please feel free to make contact via the email provided on the flyer if you have any questions etc.
Due to the timing, GIFT VOUCHERS will be available and would make fab Xmas presents!
After several months off “work” and mostly “off-line”, I am home! And it feels good to sleep in my own bed, bathe in my own bath, have a toilet that flushes, AND have a washing machine 🙂 Oh the things we take for granted!
I was off creating memories for my four year old who is starting school full-time next year. We ventured all the way across Oz to Broome where we felt our feet upon the red dust of The Kimberly (my ancestral home)….then up to Darwin where I first felt her flutter in my womb….then north east to Kuranda near Cairns to run a medicine drum making workshop. I suspect we travelled 20,000 km!
Travelling over the Winter months and thus missing out on the opportunity to hibernate and rest, was challenging at times. There were many moments when I wanted to snuggle under the duvet and watch a video, but instead found myself in the harsh West Australian sun! (I know! “Poor me”!!) So to compensate, this Spring will have an element of hibernation for me, whilst we transition back to life on the East Coast, in a house with 4 walls and a roof LOL. I am being super gentle with myself as I integrate that Super Moon…some past life insights….and also wisdom gained in Sacred Circle with Blessed siStars and brothers. Big times!
I am pleased to say that my daughter grew in so many ways whilst we explored our amazing country. She learned about all sorts of animals, ate bush tucker on Country, developed a love for mud pies, and co-created priceless family memories. Here are a few of the hundreds of photographs I took on walkabout. I hope you enjoy them.
Hello beautiful people!
After an amazing drum making workshop a few weeks back, we have decided to schedule further ahead this time to give people time to put it in their diaries!
October 17th and 18th, 2015. 8.30am-5pm.
So here’s the flyer below.
We hope you can join us!
Blessings from he deep of winter,
I am delighted to announce our medicine drum making workshop here on The Central Coast.
The foundation of the workshop and the drum making process revolves around exploring, unpacking, and understanding your own birth. My teacher, Jane Hardwick Collings suggests that by revisiting our birth (our first rite of passage) we can better approach, understand, and process other rites of passage…such as birthing our babies. (Even if you have birthed once already, every subsequent birth matters!) My own journey making my own drum has definitely had a huge impact on my life, and deepened my understanding of my Self. I won’t birth a baby again, but I birth projects regularly!
So if you live within an easy drive from the Central Coast, jump on line and grab yourself a ticket. The session is limited to 8.
