It’s been a while since I actually posted on here. Not because I have lost my passion for my first-born business, but because I have been mothering my feisty now 3 year old, birthing my second business Sacred Hunger (http://sacredhunger.com.au/), and also starting my longed-for year-long Four Seasons Journey[4SJ] (http://www.schoolofshamanicmidwifery.com/School_of_Shamanic_Midwifery/Four_Seasons_Journey.html) with Jane Hardwick Collings from the School of Shamanic Midwifery (http://www.schoolofshamanicmidwifery.com).
It’s been pretty exciting starting the course. Here’s a short description, so you can see why! LOL
“A year long educational program, open to women of all ages and circumstance. The 4SJ offers students an in-depth opportunity to learn the philosophy and practice of Shamanic Midwifery, whilst cultivating a deep personal and spiritual connection with the Earth and the Divine Feminine. The curriculum is delivered via 6 face-to-face gatherings and 5 coursework modules (homestudy reading and preparation) and is intended to add to each student’s abilities as woman, mother, healer, midwife, doula, birthkeeper, the understanding and skills to work in the inner shamanic realms – midwifing transformation for themselves and others on their journeys. Focused on the shamanic perspective of cycles – of the Earth, Life, Moon and the menstrual cycle of Woman – the 4SJ prepares its students to become Shamanic Midwives – teachers and practitioners of the women’s mysteries, for their community and beyond, in the worthy mission of healing the wounded feminine, healing birth and healing the Earth.”
The opening Gathering was amazing! I felt like I’d arrived home in many ways. My creativity was off the radar! Now I just need to find some time to paint my sketches LOL. (One example is below).
Anyway…I am excited to have begun the journey, conscious of wanting to give it the attention it deserves, and being mindful of looking after my Self so that I can actually keep on doing all this stuff that I LOVE doing! So whilst my posts may be less frequent, please trust that I am still henna-ing like a mad women at Avoca Beachside Markets (http://www.fixxevents.com.au/avoca-markets-info.html) and Shelley Beach Markets (https://www.facebook.com/ShellyBeachMarkets), plastering, mothering, photographing, and working on my ‘deathie’ business, Sacred Hunger. Oh, and as always, I am repairing and painting DIY belly casts too! It’s no wonder I am always tired LOL!
So Happy 2014 to you all. May the coming year be full of love, passion, realised dreams and deep connections.
