Embodying the priestess through inner healing and sacred leadership
What a treat to speak with a treasured teacher, inspiring leader and potent role model of mine. Julie Parker taught me to become a Life Coach, and she is still teaching me today through her embodied leadership how to hold powerful, safer, inclusive and transformational spaces – and how to lead from a place of deep integrity. I invited Julie to join us on Wild Flow for a conversation that truly calls us into our own integrity, devotion and healing so we can hold powerful space to create ripples of social change, by embodying our own inner Sacred Leader and Priestess.

Wise Power: How Your Menstrual Cycle Prepares You For Menopause with Red School
Your menstrual cycle is teaching you how to work with your inner power, ready to become a wise woman at menopause. The wise women founders of Red School Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer have released their cutting edge book Wise Power: Discover the Liberating Power of Menopause to Awaken Authority, Purpose and Belonging. I’m THRILLED to have had the opportunity to chat with the authors and Menstruality leaders about how we can practice menstrual cycle awareness as a lifestyle that ultimately builds our self-trust, resilience, and capacity for presence, so that when the time comes, we can surrender, die and be reborn through the “mother of all initiations” that is Menopause.
Coming of Age Wisdom for Mothers and Daughters with Arahni Lion and Jo Rockendorfer
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.
Intuition: When to Say No and Love Yourself First
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.
