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.
I’ve been wanting to have a conversation about sex and sexuality on the podcast for some time now. Sex, desire, sexuality, and sexual pleasure are such taboos and often get left to the wayside and yet its such an intrinsic part of the menstrual cycle, and of our humanity. This conversation has left me feeling nourished, connected, soft, curious and whole. I hope that in listening you feel that way too.
Allow me to introduce you to Ruby. Ruby May is a devotee of the Yin, facilitator, community & connection catalyst, midwifing a world in which cyclical awareness is integrated into the way we relate and shape the world.
With a background in working professionally with intimacy and sexuality and a stint working as a dominatrix, Ruby became fascinated in the phenomena of Feminine leadership and how the womb could become a gateway into embodying this.
She is the community leader for the graduates of the Menstruality Leadership programme for the Red School, the biggest education centre globally for Menstrual Cycle Awareness and her own initiative, Know Your Flow. Both support the cultivation of community for developing body literacy, inspired leadership and social change, with over 200 members from over 20 countries.
The author of “Know Your Flow: A cycle Tracking Journal for Personal and Planetary Revolution” and creatrix behind”The Game”, Ruby currently lives in the creative cauldron of Berlin.
Listen, enjoy, share with your partner and friends, and allow this conversation to inspire you into deeper relationship with yourself and your cyclical experience. Happy listening
Pleasure. What is pleasure? Does the word fill you with shame, guilt or uneasy feelings? Do you feel like pleasure isn’t for you? Does this potent word conjure up thoughts of sex, and how comfortable you are with your own sexuality?
Pleasure is so much more than this, and my guest on Wild Flow the Podcast, Rowena Hobbins, is here to invite you into reframing pleasure as an essential part of your path to healing and empowerment. In fact she’s here to invite you to join the Pleasure Club!
This juicy chat with my soul sister and biz bestie dives deep into:
Our own personal relationships, attitudes and experiences of pleasure both in the past and present,
What pleasure means to us, and what it means to you, and why it’s not all about orgasms,
What blocks you from relating to and accessing pleasure,
Why you can’t open to pleasure until you’ve done the deep inner work, looking at childhood patterns and conditioning around pleasure first,
Why pleasure is essential to cultivate and learn to hold in your body, and how this missing link has been life changing for both of us
and how Rowena is on a mission to invite women to reclaim their pleasure birthright in her new Pleasure Club in 2023 (this sounds seriously amazing!)
In this episode of Wild Flow Podcast I sat down for a delicious conversation with Hannah Brown who offers menstrual story work to women to help them unpick the threads of their stories, lived experiences, and relationship with their body and cycle. By exploring the patterns that run through your womb story, you can challenge what’s true, what’s yours and what needs letting go, with the aim of rejecting menstrual shame and reclaiming your cycle. Hannah is a Children’s social worker, trainer/consultant and menstrual cycle coach who has worked with people to support change for nearly two decades. She’s also a client of mine, having been coaching with me and part of my Cycle Sorcery group journey so this conversation feels like a beautiful natter with a good friend.
What your soul is and how you might relate or connect to it? What is the difference between spirit and soul? What is a soul journey? Your soul journey is a deep descent into finding your soul purpose. Wild Flow Podcast Guest Katara Sky is a guide for people journeying (willingly or not!) on the descent into their soul’s initiation, or awakening, which is when the ego dissolves and big questions about what life is all for anyway, are asked.
Beyond who you think you are, what you do, and the stage of life you’re at, you may or may not have an experience that prompts you to question everything and come face to face with your deepest, truest essence: your soul.
period power: why you should care about your period – wild flow podcast with Charlotte Pointeaux. This week on Wild Flow Podcast…
Understanding exactly what is going on within our bodies as cyclical beings is incredibly profound – in fact it’s life altering, and potentially culturally transformational. When the majority of girls grow up feeling very disconnected from their bodies and reject their menstrual cycles, as they are overwhelmed by cultural and familial menstrual shame, the effects of this play out in a multitude of ways across all realms of our lives. So by learning what your period is, and what your menstrual cycle is as a whole, and intentionally supporting and seeking support during our rites of passages is a sacred reclamation.

Tune In to hear: Jane’s cosmic weather report, a powerfully simple tool to understand how the cycles around and within you are influencing you.
Jane sharing the breadcrumbs she followed that have led her to becoming the woman and leader she is today.
How we got into the state of the world we’re in today with high rates of depression, illness, disempowerment in a broken system, and what we can do at this pivotal point in time to create change individually, and collectively.
Reflections on the deeply transformative year-long Four Seasons Journey is which I’m doing with Jane this year, and what Jane’s intention for creating it was,
Jane explaining the phase of life she’s in right now: the Maga phase, post-menopausal powerful Autumn Harvest Queen, and how we can prepare before hand for a healthy, empowering menopause beforehand, and claim our gifts and power when we’re there ourselves.
Thank you so much Jane for chatting with us, leading us, teaching us and guiding us into our own power.

Today’s guest Emma Campbell is my old listening buddy who I met when we both had small children, and we’re growing our businesses. We both wanted to do things in a way that honoured the season of life we we’re in, and permitted us to simply be where we were at. When I shared that I am a Cycle Coach with Emma for the first time, she soaked up all the information I gave her and began syncing her life and work to the moon, whilst she was breastfeeding.
Fast forward to today and Emma is sharing cycle awareness in corporate teams and seeing huge shifts in leadership and performance when women and leaders notice how staff feel, communicate and perform differently across their cycles. Cycle-aware workplaces are happening people! Listen to Wild Flow Podcast with Charlotte Pointeaux to learn about :
how we both use cycle wisdom to support the sustainable, aligned and impactful growth of our own businesses whilst being present at home
