BODY LOVE ~ Circle, Dance & Sound Journey for Women.
Are you a deep feeling, big hearted and caring woman who is always busy tending to everyone, and everything else?
Perhaps your body has been missing out on the care, attention and love it needs to be well and thriving as you've been compelled to put all these other things first?
Are you missing the connection to your body? To nature? To yourself?
Do you need or would you LOVE a nourishing, restorative time and place to tend to YOU?
Do you know you need to start giving yourself and your body extra love and attention?
Want to nurture and nourish your body?
Need some women's connection?
Perhaps you come from a long line of women who give, give and give and you've realised this is not sustainable for you and it's time to make a change and change this pattern so that you can be well and thrive also?
Or maybe you are a woman who already has made it a priority to put your self care high on your list of priorities and you enjoy any opportunity to get together with other woman and nurture yourself and fill up your energy tank as a woman, as you know this help you to have more to give and radiate out for others when you are giving from overflow instead of giving from a depleted state....

"Thank you soooooo much for today, I felt so safe and was so inspired and can’t wait to start to reach out and reconnect with other goddesses . Today was spectacular! You held the most nurturing and creative space and I definitely felt like I was coming home- in style! What a beautiful bunch of women I got to meet today".

"I have been to several of Kathy’s circles and recently joined her ‘Ancestral Woman’ event. She always chooses great themes that are so essential in the quest for wholeness and her sessions bring the personal and the universal seamlessly together. Kathy always sets up the space in a way that signals a transition away from the world outside to the realm of the sacred. My body senses it and readies itself for something special. What I most love about Kathy’s events is her presence itself. She has obviously lived through a lot, dug deep, held space for her self and genuinely reclaimed and connected with these archetypes and various states. That’s why she feels so uniquely qualified to hold space for others as she guides them into those same states and places. She leads very powerfully and each event feels like a celebration of the whole human being - for everything from the deepest pain to ecstatic joy, from dreams, to spirit animals, to our ancestral connections, to deep introspection and solidarity between us all.… Her dance journeys are my favourite part - her voice is so resonant, her words so evocative and her music perfect. The combination helps you access everything Kathy is guiding you towards - I feel able to dance into my pain, to fully inhabit various states, versions of myself, dreams, spirit animals, ancestors…there’s space for everything and then I eventually transcend myself to join the eternal. By the end, I always feel fuller, more whole and cosmically connected. I leave every circle with with a sense of support, of being backed by my whole self, by the other women I’ve moved with, by all the selves through the ages, by our ancestors. I feel welcome and celebrated."
Tess ~ 'Ancestral Woman' circle & dance journey ~ May 2021
"I have been to many of Kathy’s Women’s Circles and recently joined her Ancestral Women Circle and Dance Journey. As usual, it hit a beautiful target in me. I was feeling quite separate and unsociable when I arrived after a hard week, but listening to the other women share in circle drew so much compassion from me. Like always, I felt that as different as our details might be, we are all sharing the same one path. The same aches, pains and breakthroughs of waking up to who we are and healing our wounds and those of our ancestors. The barriers of judgment and criticism, my own ancestral wounds, melted and gave way to a feeling of unconditional love and softness. During the dance journey, Kathy guided us confidently from a space of nurturing our own individual ancestral hurts to an elaborate and beautiful artwork filled with the all the colours, qualities and strengths of our lineage. Then she drew us magically into a shared space where even the shyest and private among us were joined together in a feeling of courage, joyous sisterhood and mutual support. So freeing and fortifying at the same time. Thank you Kathy. I will continue to show up wherever you are holding Women’s Circles."
