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.

Sex And The Menstrual Cycle on wild flow podcast

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

Welcome To The Pleasure Club

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!)

Why You Should Track Your Menstrual Cycle And How To Do It

why you should track your Menstrual cycle and how to do it

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.

period power: why you should care about your period​

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.

Waking The Witches: Standing In Your Feminine Power with Jane Hardwicke Collings

Jane Hardwicke Collings is a powerful, magickal Boss Witch who is a on a mission to wake up the Witches. She woke me up when I came across her work, that’s for sure.

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.

How To Exercise For Your Cycle And Pregnancy

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.
