Women’s Rituals

“Moana’s work bridges a gap in our western culture that ancient societies have been honouring for thousands of years.” S.Nunn, 43 y.o. mother of two 
In ritual we step out of the known. We offer our humble prayers and surrender into that which is bigger than all of us, bigger than words can name. We call upon the Invisible, and lay our hearts at the feet of the Great She, Mother of all things, Creation itself.
And there, with no agenda, we become vessels, receptacles for the wisdom of all time. Truth reveals itself in this sacred place.
We use ritual to call in, to let go, to mark cycles and transitions, for birth, death, endings, beginnings, to give thanks….

Menarche Ritual

A menarche ritual is foundational for girls to embrace the great mystery that our menstrual cycle ushers in. This very important ritual serves to honour and celebrate the onset of a girls menstrual cycle, her moon cycle. With the support of friends and family, this is a time for women to share wisdom, make ceremony, and remember Sisterhood.

The sisters understand that as women the knowledge is innate within them and that, besides, they have their uteruses, which hold not the symbolic but the actual power of creation. -Marija Gimbutas, The Language of the Goddess

I am passionate about ceremony and menarche! and would love to support any mother to mark her daughter’s entry into her blood cycle with ceremony.  I have facilitated many of these ceremonies, and each one is unique, depending on what’s appropriate for the particular girl, or girls. I am here to offer my experience and encourage you!

I awoke from the inherited curse of icy sanitation, to embrace creation’s fire, sacred bloodflower, the doorway to her power, and the mystery sweet.’- Moana Pearl

One response to “Women’s Rituals

  1. I wish I had of had a Menarche ritual at the time of my first flow. I had the opportunity though to experience my one and only Blessingway last year.
