Coming of Age Wisdom for Mothers and Daughters with Arahni Lion and Jo Rockendorfer

coming of age wisdom for mothers and daughters

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.

Reclaim Your Menstrual Story to Reclaim Your Body

telling your menstrual story with Hannah Brown and Charlotte Pointeaux on Wild Flow Podcast

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.

Soul Cycles: into Your Soul Awakening

Soul Cycles on Wild Flow Podcast with Katara Sky and Charlotte Pointeaux

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.

cyclic rituals, sacred self-care and an oracle card reading for your cycle

cyclic rituals, sacred self-care and oracle card reading for your cycle

In this episode of Wild Flow Podcast I sat down for a delicious conversation with my friend Clare Foale, a writer, an artist, a teacher, a space holder, a tapping practitioner, a questioner and an ocean-lover. Clare and I met originally in cycle facilitator training with Mitle Southey, and shared visions and journeys whilst we sat next to each other. I loved her earrings and beautifully warm wisdom and laugh. 

Since then Clare has trained with me to become a Certified First Moon Circle Facilitator, and Clare has claimed her creativity by, amongst other things, dreaming and birthing her magickal oracle card deck called Spacious, which is all about honouring our desires, needs, and sacred selves. 

What menstrual / cycle awareness means to both of us,

How we can use incredibly simple reflective questions to support us through the more challenging as well as expansive moments of our menstrual cycles, and daily life as women, mothers, space holders,

Why Clare does not like the term self-care and her own personal practice that she finds infinitely more nourishing instead,

She looks back at the last decade of her life from turning 30 to turning 40, and shares the love notes of wisdom she shares with her younger self,

And Clare offers us an oracle card reading from her new card deck Spacious to hold space for ourselves through the four phases of our next menstrual cycle. This is a beautiful menstrual cycle awareness ritual!

Who Holds The Mother? Healing The Inner Split in Matrescence

Who Holds The Mother? Healing The Inner Split in Matrescence. When a baby is born, everyone rushes to hold the baby. But who is holding the Mother? This is the big question which Amy Taylor-Kabbaz is advocating to be resolved. Amy’s work centres Matrescense, the becoming of a Mother, which happens slowly, almost invisibly to others, but felt deeply by the woman. This rich, deep, powerful conversation bought Amy and I together on something we feel so strongly about: that rites of passages must be honoured in modern cultures to ensure the wellbeing of all – especially the Feminine. Join us on Wild Flow Podcast with Charlotte Pointeaux to hear more about what Matrescence is and where it originated, how we experience an Inner Split as our identities, perspectives and whole self irreversibly changes in Matrescence, how our careers, roles and value changes in Motherhood, and what we can collectively do to reclaim and honour The Mother.

What age is best for girls to attend a First Moon Circle?

Did you know that on average, Australian females experience between 450-500 periods in her lifetime, with the average cycle spanning between 21-35 days, and the average bleed lasting between 2-7 days?

Once we begin menstruating (at menarche – pronounced “men-ar-kee”) which occurs anywhere these days between roughly the ages of 8-15, and commonly around ages 12-13, we begin our monthly bleed (menstrual cycle) until we reach menopause which occurs approximately at the age of 50 (although again, this can occur much earlier or later as it is do individual).

After menarche our periods will be irregular for most of our teen years until the rhythm is established and our hormones settle into their natural, beautiful cycle. You might notice that some months you bleed for longer, or more heavily than other times, or that your cycle isn’t the same length each time. This is all ok – everyone’s cycle is different.
