Todays guest on Wild Flow with Charlotte Pointeaux is Carly Mountain, she knows myth and what’s involved to descend into the depths of the underworld where we face our darkest shadows and tallest hurdles, having discovered and recognised her and many others own life stories mirroring the great ancient myth of Inanna, Queen of heaven and earth who descended to the underworld to meet her sister Ereskigal, Queen of the Underworld after sacrificing all that she knew about herself and the world she inhabited, only to be struck dead immediately by her sister.
imagine a world where mothers were given sacred space to welcome their daughters intentionally into their coming of age rite of passage. and where girls were welcomed into circle with other mothers and daughters to find deep wisdom, loving support and a chance to experience true sisterhood all before their 13th birthday. there is a place on earth: it’s called the seeding wisdom journey held annually in the illawarra (nsw) by wise women arahni lion and jo rockendorfer. If you’ve ever wished you were more supported, more seen and heard, more understood and respected in your own maiden years, this is a truly special way of healing that part of you, and to give your child the best start to a conscious, empowered, embodied and connected womanhood. I know that when my daughters are of age, we will be taking the journey together, one by one.
Arahni and Jo share the story of why and how they created this potent experience, what happens within the journey, and why this kind of initiatory journey is needed now, more than ever.

how does the universe and cosmos, the earth, our environment and the people around us influence our menstrual cycle and menopause experience? As within, so without, as above, so below. My guest Tracey Stevens is an emotional root cause health practitioner and sees a strong connection between the universal flow and chaos around us playing out in human health – which can impact our menstrual health and menopause.
Spells, crystal balls, and black magick: that’s what happens in circle, isn’t it? if you’ve not been to one yet, you might have some curious ideas about what really goes on at a women’s circle, your imagination running amok thinking of wild women letting loose, conjuring up all kinds of magic. so if you’re curious, intrigued, but unsure, and a bit wary, then i’d love to bust some myths and clear up what it’s all about, because circles are joy, and you deserve to join one.
Women have come together to share stories, wisdom, support and encouragement in circle for thousands of years, before slowly our way was lost, eroded, hidden. Modern women’s gatherings might look more like meetings in cafes, to sewing circles, mothers groups or going out for dinner and drinks. But recently, there has been a huge reclamation of women’s circle in its original sense. Now circles are coming back into the mainstream, you’ve got the chance to join us at your local circle here in the Southern Highlands NSW with me, Charlotte!
Because I know that we aren’t raised knowing what circles are, what happens, and how to simply be in circle, I want to help you feel confident and ready to attend your first one. So let’s get into it, let’s bust some myths and get to the heart of what circles are…
Hormones get a bad rap by anyone who doesn’t understand their cyclic power, the role they play in creation and creativity, and anyone who finds them inconvenient, which includes many women and girls, as well as males.However hormones are such a gift! As female hormones change across the cycle, day to day, week to week, we see a beautiful rhythm emerge that really clearly mirrors the moons phases and nature’s seasons. These layers of cycles (menstrual, moon, sun, and seasons) show us how we are meant to live: in a way that honours the cycle and our humanity. We aren’t robots. We are moons. So let’s live as we are meant to.These cycles show us how to get the best out of ourselves if we can listen.
After I tried womb steaming for the first time this year in a group on a women’s retreat, I realised I had a layer of shame around the idea of tending to the health of my vagina through steaming in public. However the experience was profound: enjoyable, spiritual, and pleasurable. It opened a door to something new for me.
Recently, I took the step of purchasing myself a steam stool and had my first at-home steam, which was divine. My curiosity piqued – and many of my instagram community wanting to learn more too, I invited Toyah Hicks to share about pelvic steaming for menstrual health on Wild Flow Podcast with me, in episode 14.
Toyah Hicks is a Pelvic Steaming Practitioner, Birth Trauma Support Worker, Postpartum Doula in Training and a Māmā to her 16month old Son. She is committed to the Reawakening of Feminine Consciousness and the Reclamation of our sacred Rites of Passage.
