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

A Blessingway is a nourishing ritual for expectant mothers and her dear friends and family, to bless and honour her transition from woman to mother, regardless of how many children she already has. Together we humble to and celebrate the rich beauty and sacred power of woman’s capacity to bring forth new life through her body. (This ritual usually takes place towards the end of pregnancy and is offered on demand, so please contact me with enough time to organise!.)
