Coming Home ~ Sacred Women's Circle with Kathy Popplewell
Kathy Popplewell 2023

I AM SACRED ~ Circle, Dance and Sound Journey for Women with Kathy.

Have you forgotten that you are sacred? Lost connection with your sacredness as a woman? Or perhaps the busyness, noise and demands of everyday life and meeting the needs of others has overtaken or drowned the needs YOU have and you can feel that you are loosing or have lost yourself in small or big ways?

Or perhaps you just love any opportunity to come together in sacred space with other women and celebrate, explore and connect to the sacredness in you and others!

Would you like to nurture the experience of yourself, as woman, as sacred?

This Saturday morning women’s circle, dance and sound journey with Kathy will be a gentle, welcoming, sacred space created to support you to reconnect to, rediscover, explore, express, and nurture yourself, as a woman, as sacred, within a safe and supportive and sacred women's space.


As women we naturally and instinctually give so much to everything and everyone else, tending to everyones and everything elses needs. We are actually wired that way as a woman. But left to instinct (which is basically our survival instincts) we can easily become depleted and not meet our own needs of filling ourselves back up, expressing ourselves and our feelings (yes we ARE feeling creatures, it IS natural and normal for women to have lots and lots of feelings, and it's not the feelings that are the problem but NOT having safe, sacred spaces and none harmful ways of expressing or channeling them IS a problem. Because these feelings don't magically just go away all by themselves, they can instead get trapped into the body and mind causing all kinds of harmful effects which impact both ourselves AND the ones we love and care for the most).

​Join us for a gentle, moving, expansive and relieving morning of exploring, expressing, discovering and connecting to yourself (and others) as sacred.

"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."
