Sarah Miller and the RAW Garden invite you to the Melbourne launch of Bubbles beyond Borders
A global campaign to support the dreams of girls & women around the world
Bring your daughters, your families and join us to blow bubbles for a powerful purpose – to pledge an action in support of girls and women’s rights and dreams around the world.
The launch will be facilitated by Sarah Miller, from the School of Shamanic Womancraft. Together we will co-create our circle, connecting with other worldwide events circling the globe demonstrating that dreams don’t have borders; that we are a global community that supports the hopes and dreams of girls and women worldwide.
Participants are invited to come in a spirit of hope and a pledge to support their dreams! As part of the ceremony Sarah will also lead a drumming circle, so please feel free to bring a drum or tambourine to send our intentions and pledges out into the world. No drumming experience is required.

MoonDance: Feminine Embodiment Workshop
Saturday 2 September
Reconnect with your body and the feminine wisdom within you.
We will immerse ourselves in the river of sensation that is our lived experience.
This is a day of remembering and returning to Her, fully present.
We will go softly, and fiercely into the wild expression of you.
In this day we explore and embody feminine archetypes: maiden/mother/maga/crone. We play with the deep interconnection between these archetypes and the earth and her seasons, the lunar phases and our own bodily wisdom.
This is a day of playful, heartfelt, authentic movement and expression.
Saturday 2nd September
9.00 – 5.00 p.m
morning and afternoon tea provided

Make Your Own Medicine Drum
A Workshop for Women
Saturday 14 October 2017
Making a medicine drum is a deep and powerful process of birthing a shamanic healing tool for personal transformation. The drum is a sacred tool, an instrument of music, an intimate partner in the soul’s journey and woven through time with women’s spirituality. When you make a drum you enter into a shamanic process of personal healing.
This workshop is for women only.
The space will be lovingly held by graduates and Teachers of the Four Seasons Journey of the School of Shamanic Womancraft.
Cost: $380, all materials provided
Purchase full price tickets here,

Connecting with Your Medicine Drum
Join us in ceremony to connect deeply with the voice and spirit of your shamanic medicine drum. Learn simple, embodied rituals and techniques to deepen your relationship with your drum in a sacred circle.
“The drum echoes the heartbeat of the earth and enables us to connect with the rythm of life.” Jane Hardwicke Collings
This is deep listening – to our drum, to ourselves, to each other and to the Earth…
This is heartfelt wordless prayer – drumming up wholeness, reconnection, trust, safety and love – what the world needs now…
Doing these things in the company of others is a healing act in itself, a re-membering of how we can be together, living our prayers and praying our life.
We are drumming ourselves Home…
Bring your drum (and beater) if you have one.
Cost: $65/55 concession

Sacred Sensuality- Pathways to Presence and Pleasure
A Retreat for Women
Rescheduled due to illness…Dates not set…
Early Bird Price $380 –
Regular Price $440
This nourishing retreat on the Mornington Peninsula offers women a safe space to connect deeply to the wisdom of their living/loving bodies and to remember and reclaim the body as Temple as Sacred as Earth.
This is a weekend of singing up bliss, diving deeply into the pleasure of our female bodies and the present moment, under a Full Moon in the fire sign of Leo. Awakening to the Earth as Lover, listening deeply to our womb space, our breasts, our hearts, our bodies. Singing up our sacred sensuality, our birthright.
Yet, as soon as we make such an intention, we are faced with our other birthright: the legacy of centuries of undervaluing and abuse in a patriarchal culture that still, to this day, rapes, threatens, kills. Shame, pain and trauma – whether arising in our own stories, or the stories of our mothers and grandmothers, the stories of our sisters around the world, or the stories of our wounded Earth – shadow our bliss at a cellular level.
This is a weekend of allowing, rather than forcing. We will lovingly receive our grief and joy, both, as Teachers on this journey to wholeness. We will play, pray, explore and allow all that needs to be expressed to be expressed.
We are not alone. We will listen with the ears of our hearts, sharing our stories in the alchemy of loving sisterhood.
At its heart, this weekend is an invitation to listen deeply to your body and what you are needing. To trust your own impulses and receive your own intuitive wisdom. No activity is compulsory, all is offered in a spirit of openness and a deep trust in your process. You choose what you share and reveal.
We alchemise our past through the power of our loving attention, and Grace. And we do this for all our relations, stretching forwards and backwards in time.
Together we are Re-Membering our birthright for pleasure, for Aliveness, for Authenticity.
Together we are reclaiming our Readyness to offer ourselves fully for the healing of ourselves and our world, emboldened by the truth of our Sacred Sensuality.
A taste of some of the activities on offer:
* Creating sacred space in our bodies and through the intimacy of a women’s circle
