Longing to be Held

“In order to step out of our shells and into our greatness we need a place to be held whilst in the process of transformation. As we step beyond our self-imposed limitations, our learned smallness, inherited inadequacy, our culturally imposed confinement, our trauma and own our power we need to learn to find… or create safe space.

A safe space allows you to feel yourself into your own skin and power. It is one that holds you safely, without judgement, that allows – nay, celebrates – the unfolding of yourself. It is a place to be deeply seen and to be heard. We cannot transform in healthy ways, when we are caught in a hall of mirrors of trauma, fear and shame. A safe space provides a circle of reflective living mirrors that cheer us into our greatness and witness our full power before we may see it ourselves.

Every woman needs this – a place to express her doubts and frustrations, to be heard and seen into her power. A place where she can be without shame. Most of us have experienced few truly safe, held spaces in our lifetimes. For many women it is vital that this space is out of the male gaze. For some it may be important to have a circle of women who know us well, for others a group of strangers is safer.

Dear love, if you don’t have one, seek one out, or create a safe harbour for yourself.

Just one. A place where you can be completely yourself.”

From my new book, Burning Woman – out June 2016

Are you longing to be held? Yearning for safe space? Poised on the verge of transformation and feeling alone? Feeling your life whirling around you with nowhere safe to rest?

There’s big stuff shifting right now in the world, in our lives, in the stars. So if things are rocky and intense, know you’re most definitely not alone. This year is requiring big courage from us already. As I journey through challenges in my own life, I am always deeply grateful for the circles of support that hold me. Different circles for different aspects of myself – my father’s kitchen table, my women’s group, Leonie’s entrepreneur Academy, and the many other circles which I have joined as part of e-courses and which hold me as I explore my creativity, my sense of self.

This year, once again, I am joining in a number of transformative women’s circles, created by women I trust. I extend the invitation to you to join me… and get the chance to win a place.

Birthing Ourselves into Being

This immersive, 13-month, online curriculum uses the metaphor of birth to discern and amplify the intrinsic ways women create. I found it extremely powerful as I travelled through the curriculum last year. The program charts a year long arc of support and resources for your self as you navigate growth and change. This year they have adjusted the payment structure to be $55 monthly to make it accessible to even more women.

I am in awe of these beautiful women to hold powerful womanspace, weave beautiful ceremony and attract deeply transformational teachers including: ALisa Starkweather, Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen, Isabel Abbot, Rising Appalachia, Susun Weed, Amy Wrigth Glenn and new Womancraft author, Melia Keeton-Digby.

I am deeply honoured to be one of their teachers again this year. And for Womancraft Publishing be publishing their book later this year.

Picture

Moonwise Woman is an online circle for 2016 journeying from full moon to full moon.​

The MoonWise Woman online circle is a journey for women who wish to re-ignite or strengthen their connection with the moon and her wisdom.  For those women who want to remember their heritage and herstory. To begin or deepen their connection with the Divine Feminine, with the land and also with each other.

Every month, every moon of the year has its attributes and energies which the circle will follow and connect with.  At the Full Moon there will be guidance for ceremony and celebration, a drum journey and suggested journal or art practices.  At the New Moon there will be a guided meditation, a review of the time gone and the time to come, and an offering from a guest teacher.  There will also be a private Facebook group where you can gather virtually with other sisters in the circle, bringing insight and support to one another.

You can join the circle on a moon by moon basis or choose to join for the entire cycle of the year.
Those who connect for the full year will also receive the gift of a power retrieval or divination reading with Awen.

Moon by Moon Sign Up – £12 per month
Full Cycle of the Year – £125

    Hello, I am entering your contest for a scholarship for Birthing Ourselves into Being! I’ve wanted to do this course before, but haven’t had the money. I’m a priestess (and a teacher, massage therapist, etc etc) and I’m suffering from priestess burnout! It’s been so long since I have been at a ritual or workshop that I wasn’t teaching; I really need a chance to reconnect to my own energy and spirituality. This would be an amazing opportunity for me. Wish me luck 😉
    Xx Ciel
