New Years

Red Tent

Sacred Women


Sat, Jan 6th, 2018!

Saturday 6 Jan 2018. 9.30am-12 noon. Machans Beach Community Hall.

Join us for a sacred circle of women to reflect upon, honour and acknowledge your journey through the past year and nurture your flow, intentions and dreams for the new year in sacred, safe and supported woman time space through talking circle, breath, dance, sound and a guided feminine medicine meditation journey with wild woman dreaming medicine woman Kathy Popplewell. 

Throughout the ages women have gathered to nourish themselves and each other, share, connect, rejuvenate, let go and celebrate their moon time and menstruation. A time when the feminine energies of creativity, creation, intuition and reflection can be heightened, harnessed and channeled to bring more joy, wellbeing, love and energy into our beings, which naturally overflows onto those around us. In our modern world however for many of us this ritual and celebration has been forgotten, repressed and lost. Join us to reconnect, empower and celebrate that wonderful womanly aspect of you in circle as we flow into 2018....

About Kathy Popplewell
Nature lover, dancer, writer, facilitator, women's sacred space holder, creative goddess, gardener and wild woman dreaming medicine woman.

Kathy is an experienced mind-body and fitness professional with over 10 years experience in the mind-body and fitness industries and in facilitating sacred women's circles. She is a qualified and experienced Fitness Instructor, Yoga Teacher, Laughter Yoga Teacher, and more recently completed her Akasic Earth Training.

Throughout her career as well as teaching her popular yoga classes at multiple Fitness First health and fitness clubs in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs and CBD and Elixr mindbody health centre in Bondi Junction, she has regularly presented to fellow industry professionals at Filex, Australia's cutting edge International Fitness Convention, been a popular presenter at Being Woman Festival, Evolve Yoga and Wellbeing Festival and Peats Ridge Festival; toured the east coast of Australia with her Vibrance Laughter Tours and run her 2 day Certified Laughter Yoga Leadership Trainings in Melbourne, Sydney, Central Coast, Port Macquarie, the Gold Coast and Brisbane.

In 2010 & 2011 Kathy ran her Celebrating Womanhood Conference in the Gold Coast which attracted women from all over Australia.

Originally from the Central Coast NSW, Kathy made her way up to far north in 2012 on her 'loving life' tour around Australia however she never made it past the Daintree Rainforest where she fell in love. Going against all her logical insticts and following her soul guidance she came to live on a remote and isolated off grid property on the never never furthest reaches of the Daintree Rainforest which is only accessable by 4wd where she has been on an extended vision n soul quest since (in between visits back to her original hometown on the Central Coast of NSW visiting friends and rounds of caring for her parents), living back to basics and connecting with her inner medicine woman on the land, on country and in the jungles of the rainforest. 

Nurturing her tender Daintree Love dream seeds into little seedlings which are now getting their roots down she shares her wild woman dreaming medicine woman and sacred woman time offerings in Cairns, QLD and down on the Central Coast of NSW when she can and is looking forward to finally starting her small group wild woman dreaming camps on country up where she lives this winter in 2018.
