Shadow Dance - Sacred Circle & Dance Journey for Women...

Journey inward, shed light on

and bring the healing light

to those deep places and feels

in us as women within

supportive, safe and sacred space.

Friday 31st August 2018. 6.30pm-9pm. Bamboo Buddha, Holgate, NSW.

*Due to a lack of confirmed early bird bookings and the recent passing of Kathy's father this event has been canceled. Deepest apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience*.

Shadow Dance. Allow. Express. Release. Transform. Integrate. A guided sacred circle, dance & sound journey for women exploring, honouring, embodying, releasing and transforming emotions and parts of ourselves that are often 'not allowed' such as sadness, anger, grief, sexuality, sensuality and power in sacred, supported, safe, women’s space and circle. Shining healing light on these places within us.  And also to complete our internal reflection cycle of winter before we move into spring.


Join us in safe and supported, divine sacred women's space with Wild Woman Dreaming Medicine Woman Kathy Popplewell.


Open to women of all ages and stages of life.

{What is The Shadow?}


As a quick intro into what I'm referring to as 'the shadow' is the parts of ourselves, each other, the world and our emotions that in our society we often suppress and keep hidden, shy n turn away from, reject, disown or frown upon. The parts, the emotions, the traits often deemed or perceived as negative, undesirable and not acceptable. This could also include not being able to live up to our expectations (again in ourselves or others) or the expectations of others. However these are things that are a natural part of life and polarity and wholeness. Including but not limited to anger, sadness, grief, guilt, shame, hopelessness, overwhelm, depression and more.

Come to be seen, be heard and be felt.
Come to see, hear and feel.
Come to allow and acknowledge all of yourself and your experiences.
Come to dance it ALL. Come to dance your heart out. 
Come to dance and move and breathe yourself cleansed.
Come to release and let go through movement, breath and sound.
Come to dance, to breath deeply, to shed, to let go, to embody, to transform, to honor, to acknowledge, to complete, to move on.

Come to a space where your wholeness and brokenness and diversity and wildness and uniqueness and everything in between all shades of light and dark and shadow as a woman are not only allowed but also welcomed, embraced and celebrated.

Come to acknowledge and allow and honour wherever in your stage of life and womanhood you are right now.

Come to connect in sacred space with other women.


This circle & dance journey is limited to a maximum of 16 participants.

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 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.
