“While I had an idea about what Moonsong was about, I did not expect to be so deeply touched by the openhearted tender acceptance of the beautiful women I sat in circle with. Moonsong has a way of bringing women together in a raw undefined way, allowing us space to express ourselves and feel heard/held. Through learning to weave our own cycle into the universal rhythms I felt great kinship with my fellow sisters. So thank you Sarah for all that you do and all that you say. Your work is potent and your ability to conduct it is met with kindness and immense wisdom. I have been changed by it. ” Myshell
Public Drumming Event
Sunday 4th February 2018
more details to come
We will gather together on BoonWurrung Country to drum for the healing of the feminine and the masculine. We will drum and circle together to recognise that our women’s work occurs on BoonWurrung Country – and/or depending where you work on Aboriginal Land more generally.
We are dreaming this event into being and plan to have a Welcome to Country by a BoonWurrung Elder to acknowledge that we work and live on Traditional Lands. We hope this circle can deepen our connection to Country and deepen our understanding of Boonwurrung Culture and connection. We envision that our intentions and prayers will be drummed, and sung to the Spirits of this Land, to the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine in support of the healing that is so sorely needed for all our sakes, and the sakes of our children’s children and the land.
We remember the words of Bunjil that when we are invited to country we must abide by his Law, to look after Country (Biik) and to Look after the Children (bup bup).
All women and those who identify as women are welcome to this event. We ask that you come in support of these Prayers and Intentions.
More details coming….

Sacred Sensuality- Pathways to Presence and Pleasure
A Retreat for Women
25- 27 May,
Vine & Branches,
This nourishing retreat 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 waxing Moon. 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.
We bow before you Holy woman.
You are all that you need to be. We welcome all of you, the joy, the shame, the grief, the love, the 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 – 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

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.
