Sacred Women’s Circles
Sarah Miller and Grace Funk from Priestess Your Life will be holding monthly women’s circles in 2018. You are warmly invited to join us.
Step inside the circle, be welcomed by your sisters. You will be held and heard, touched and moved.
The circle is Shaman. The circle is Way shower. Join us to co- create the magical space of a Sacred Women’s Circle. These sacred circles are imbued with the wisdom of the gentle-wild woman, of the divine goddess, of Self in her myriad forms.
The circle provides women with a connection to a deep seated tradition of coming together to support, nurture and hold one another in a sacred space. It is a red tent experience, honouring the mysteries of the feminine, of the cycles and the bodies sacred intelligence.
Reconnect with the women’s mysteries!
These circles will be held monthly on the following dates:
Thursday 8 March

Thursday 10 May
Thursday 7 June
No circles in July and August- We rest in Winter!

You can come to one or all of the circles but the more we gather together the deeper we can journey into Wholeness.
Circles will commence at 7.30 and run for 2 hours.
All circles will be held at El Camino Wellness Centre, 102 Grange Rd, Glenhuntly.
Get in touch with any inquiries.
Winter Solstice Dance
We dance to celebrate the longest night, the deepest dark. We celebrate the dark and then the return of the light. This is the moment when formlessness becomes form, when the seed dreams itself into being. What dreams will arise in you, what energy will flow through your body into this spaciousness of you?
We will have a small ritual to honour this seasonal moment. Bring a gift of nature for our altar. No dance experience necessary only a willingness to move and be moved.No steps to follow, only the impulses of your moving body.
This is a women’s only movement and dance session.
Friday 22nd June
7.30 – 9.30pm

It is time, women are awakening..
A one day women’s workshop
with Sarah Miller
Reclaiming feminine power through reconnection with the women’s mysteries.
Reconnect with the women’s wisdom within you –
- Learn about the wisdom of the cycles and our life seasons
- The influence of the lunar cycle and the earth’s seasons
- The spiritual practice of menstruation and the transformative power of our rites of passage
- Understand why you feel the way you do!
Do you feel the sacred tremor within your own body, that deep call to reconnect to your power and wisdom?
This is a day of remembering a time long ago when women were revered, where women regularly gathered in sacred circle…When our bodies, our cycling, and our blood was honoured.
It is a day of healing the wounds of this culture- which demeans our bodies, and denies our voices. But we are remembering, returning, gently rewilding,
We are coming home to our bodies, to ourselves. The map home has been within us all along.
We would be delighted to have you join us. Bookings

“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

Some Past Events:
Connecting with Your Medicine Drum Workshop
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
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
* Barefoot dancing on the earth
