Sharing the loving…

Living Circles

When I share my beautiful “Fragile Please Touch Me” Teraphim with the circle, I feel the ancients holding her with me. This tool, I explain, comes from a time when our Goddesses where close enough to touch. When we built forms we could hold on to when the shit got real! Something power-filled to walk with us as we stretched open in a thousand directions to allow our daughter’s birth through us. Our Goddesses were for support, like we were as women to each other, like we can be now if we let go of our shields and use our swords with respect and tender loving care.

Penelope Shuttle, Tamara Slayton, Marie Stopes, Lara Owen, Jane Hardwicke-Collings, Jane Bennett, Dr Christine Northup, Inga Musico… Please, name me some more!

The Red Tide is Rising… the Mama’s voice, that which has moved me over these last 15 years of becoming a menstrual educator is hankering to be heard. There were library searches I would do back then, questing for someone else that may know about what I was beginning to learn from my body. Not finding very much, but what I did find I consumed with such gusto! The Wise Wound, Red Moon, Wild Genie, Her Blood is Gold.

I tried to create a collective of menstrual educators back in 1999/2000… I wasn’t ready then. I almost owned the Australian and NZ license for the Keeper… that would have made things very different… But what I ended up doing was building the Temple of the Blood CD… A menstrual meditation that is for clearing away the shame. Making the commitment to Her to listen to what moves me. To share…
