What does this mean?
In this context, it refers to the path of healing for and between women. It acknowledges the sacred relationship we have with Spirit, with one another and within ourselves. The medicine is honouring those relationships and living in a way that restores them if they have been broken.
In our society, there is a sister wound where women undermine and hurt one another, as they also do to themselves. This needs to be addressed, cared for and to heal if we are to be empowered and in our wholeness. If we want to dance the sacred dance with the masculine in a good way, we must first find our own dance within ourselves that honours our inner feminine and masculine.
Learning how to love ourselves as women, to put aside the cultural conditioning that tells us to be a certain way, and to love and support one another is women's medicine. It is where we connect into ourselves, our bodies, our ways - and honour, celebrate and learn from them.
Women's medicine includes the weaving of our many different ways into a collective basket and is a walk of wisdom, beauty and power.
Your Facilitator - Christina Niven
I have a passion for sisterhood - for women coming together to share, to support and learn from one another. This makes my heart sing! It's a beautiful thing when women gather and share from their hearts. And it's transformative and so healing. And, in my experience, we need it now more than ever.
My passion is to support women in their growth using the tools and knowledge that I have learned and am able to offer. My approach to life is heart and spirit guided, and also grounded.
Drawing from over 25 years of being on the transformative path through yoga, meditation, breathwork, plant medicines, sacred ceremony and deep inner work, I offer a safe, compassionate and loving space for self reflection, inquiry and growth. I love supporting women to come to know themselves more deeply, and to discover what is wanting to come forth in their lives!
SUPPORTING THE WOMEN'S JOURNEY
For women looking for spiritual support, connection and guidance.
Currently in session. Will be offered again in fall 2020. This is a celebration of the journey through mid-life where we redefine ourselves and reframe the narrative that our culture tends to tell about being a middle age woman. Instead of withering, this is about connecting into our inner magnificence and potency with age.
Postponed. New date TBD post covid.
In this gathering of women, we will move, breathe and share together. This is a time for community and connection - to share from our hearts, laugh, relax, listen, cry if need be, and come together to deepen within ourselves and with one another.
