Unity: The Meeting Place Festival at Castle Mountain NSW
I will be facilitating a post-fire Women's Circle and creating the Red Tent space. Info and tickets here.
The fires have brought us collectively to our knees, stripping everything to the fundamentals. There is opportunity in this moment to anchor change and to take responsibility as a custodial species.
The title of this gathering is Unity. As a society we have had a collective experience.
The timing is perfect to gather and reflect on what Unity means.
This circle is about reflecting and sharing around how these fires are shaping our individual/collective consciousness. As women how do we respond?
To nourish us in this circle, Light Worker Etty Ayalon will support our processing with a heart centred guided meditation for healing within ourselves and Mother Earth accompanied by her crystal bowl sound bath.
sacRED tent at Unity
Over the past few years I have been offering red tent spaces at Women”s Gatherings and Festivals. It gives women a place to just Be and Restore.
Even though Red Tent traditionally is a space where women can retreat, rest and reflect during their menstruation, it is a space for women of all ages. It used to be the place where women's knowledge was shared between women, stories & traditions passed on. Modern red tents offer a sanctuary to be witnessed and held within the common Unity of women and continue to be places of shared learning.
There will be oracle cards, crayons and paper for personal reflecting and I am available to hold space in my capacity as a counsellor to support anything that may come up at the gathering.

Journey with the Seven Greek Goddesses: a weekend experience at HearthGround.
Join Yia for a Journey with the Seven Greek Goddesses: a deep exploratory journey into feminine psychology, spirituality, myth and women's mysteries.
Over the course of a weekend, we will explore how these mythological figures from the deep past can be allies in this time of great change and challenge.
Ancient archetypes – modern perspectives:
Ignite your inner spark and reconnect to your life purpose.... Hestia
Develop strategies for success in key areas of your life.... Athena
Honour your cyclic nature and develop the art of timing...Demeter
Transmute your wounds and reclaim your inner authority....Persephone
Reconnect to your inner Shaman/Medicine woman....Artemis
Reclaim personal power and responsibility....Hera
Renew the alchemy of feminine passion... Aphrodite
Archetypes are powerful inner forces that are encoded in the stories/myths that live on through time. They enable one to see more clearly the stories and psychological patterns that are shaping behaviour and influencing emotions.
Recognising and activating the fundamental patterns revealed by the stories of these Goddesses helps to deepen our Own Journey of self discovery as we seek our own wholeness/holiness in this Life time.
Arrive from 4pm Friday for a Saturday morning start. We finish 4pm Sunday. Bring your own camping accommodation, or glamping available.
Cost: $350 pp - includes workshop, chai and snacks. $100 deposit to secure place. Glamping $100. To book: email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for bank details and all info. Looking forward to journeying together!

Bone Woman ~ Shamanic Mystic: a weekend experience.
This weekend experience can be a companion workshop to the Journey of the Seven Greek Goddesses or as a stand alone experience.
When women maintain a silent /passive response, as a default setting within the
paradigm of the overculture, the rich emotional life that acts as a wise guide, settles deeply
into the archaeological layers of the psyche. Incrementally these daily compromises
marginalise the untended emotional inner community. The great SHE /intelligence,
connection to the Oneness, that lies beneath all the layers, needs expression. An anarchy
of emotions can erupt when the authentic soul tries to free herself of unhealthy cultural and
As women start to take responsibility for their own story, they liberate dismembered soul
parts, not only of their own hereditary patterns, but also the inherited cultural belief systems.
In this space something new can be born.
This weekend experience will feature a process which supports women to consciously journey into their biography to tend, transmute and integrate their Life Journey. This work is inspired by the Biographical Living Way work of Karl-Heinz Finke, anthroposophist and the Personal Journey work of Raphael Locke, a leader in the transpersonal movement in Australia.
This process is divided into seven year sections called septennials. As every cell changes
over a period of seven years, so too, do the physical, emotional and mental states evolve.
Whats In the Harvest Basket? allows one the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding
of self. To integrate past experience (often forgotten) and to recognise any patterns of life
depleting attitudes and belief systems, and in so doing, invites one to re script oneself.
To reflesh ones own Bone woman with values that resonate from deep Truth and Love.
Arrive from 4pm Friday for a Saturday morning start. We finish 4pm Sunday. Bring your own camping accommodation, or glamping available. Cost: $350 pp - includes workshop, chai and snacks. $100 deposit to secure place. Glamping $100. To book: email us at email@example.com for bank details and all info.
