Celebrating our Sacred Sisterhood

Saturday 15th July, Red Wisdom Hearth

SisterhoodTreat yourself and the girls in your life to a magical day! We will be sharing in circle, creating a wild flower healing salve, sharing song, sewing a dream pillow full of magical herbs, walking on the land and more. The day will gently introduce girls to the concept of sisterhood. Tickets are limited – book quickly!

This is an opportunity for mothers and daughters to share some special time together, but you don’t have to be a mother or bring a girl with you – all women of all ages, who see the importance of introducing girls to womanhood are welcome.

There will be an opening introductions ceremony around a fire, with chances later on to relax there and toast marshmallows whilst gazing into the flames. You will learn how to make a home-made salve ointment and take your own pot away at the end of the day. You will also sew a dream pillow and make a nature picture from plants & flowers.

Women and girls are invited to talk about a famous woman they admire in a sharing circle and to have the opportunity to hear about other inspiring women. This will give you the experience of bonding, that comes from sharing in a safely held circle.

You can also walk around the beautiful land near Walson Brook as well as nourish yourself with delicious food and company, plus have the chance to chat, relax and make new friends. You can spend time in the Red Tent, where you can browse a library of wise women’s books.

The day will be very child-friendly, and perfect for girls age 8 and above. The day aims to reconnect women with nature, but is not overtly Pagan. Women of all faiths and none are welcome.

The workshop aims to create a space for girls (8 – 18) to feel comfortable talking about menarche, menstruation and their body parts with one another and their mothers (or mother figures).

The workshop will be held gently with lots of breaks to aid processing, which will include walking on the land, hot chocolate around the fire, colouring and songs. It will be participatory and will include the use of video and music.

  • Girls will come away with a basic understanding of the menstrual cycle, including its spiritual dimension.
  • Girls and mothers will have the chance to explore, see and discuss the pros and cons of different types of menstrual product, including menstrual cups, sponges & washable pads.
  • The workshop will help create strong foundations for girls to be able to continue exploration of menstruation after the day.
  • Girls will go away inspired, to begin preparing for their menarche by creating a menarche box.
