The path of ‘Holding Sacred Space’ is a beautiful journey of service to the Sisterhood, the Divine Feminine in us all, and Humanity as a whole. It is a path that cannot be denied by those who are deeply called to it.
It is a contract set in motion in another time and place to gather the women and lead them home to their hearts through deep engagement with their physical, emotional and spiritual worlds.
The Level Two Facilitator Training is a deep dive into your own individual and unique medicine. It is an opportunity to discover and reignite ancient traditions that have lain dormant in your lineages.
It is a path of conscious engagement with the natural world and the world of Spirit.
It is an opportunity for you to step fully into your role as a lantern-holder for the women of your community, as they cross the bridge of remembrance.
This Training is for graduates of the Level One Facilitator Training who are ready to:
o Work more intentionally with ritual, ceremony, elemental magic and the alchemy of universal energy when hosting your Circles and Workshops.
o Learn about the energetic patterns and cycles that live within us and also outside of us and how when we align with these cycles and energies, we can understand ourselves on a deeper level and work with the natural flow of universal energy.
o Learn about the Medicine Wheel and how to work with the elements and the directions with right intention, to help support you as a space holder. This includes opening and closing the medicine wheel cleanly and safely whilst working with the five elements – Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Spirit.
o Learn how to create rituals and ceremonies that mark the cycles of Celtic Wheel (the Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice). This includes the historical significance of these key points in our seasons and how to work with the potent energies of the natural and cosmic world on these dates. Additionally, you will learn how to work with particular elements and plant allies to enhance healing, release and manifestation for the women who attend your Circles.
o Learn about the cultural, psychological and energetic significance of Rites of Passage and why they are so needed in this world at this time. We will cover the phases of Maiden, Mother, Maga and Crone and how to honour these stages for proper integration on a physical, psychological and spiritual level. We will explore powerful rituals and ceremonies that will allow for celebration and deep connection within your community.
o Explore and strengthen your connection to your ancestral lineage and your own intuition/higher self and travel more deeply into the sacred container of your heart as a portal of divine grace and healing for the women in your Circles.
This Level Two Training is for those of you who are ready to deepen your capacity as a Facilitator in your current Circles and create new opportunities to bring women together to honour and celebrate the cycles of Mother Earth and the Rites of Passage we go through in this life.
The Training will span four days during which time, we will move deeply into the wisdom of the Feminine where we have greater access to our own medicine as well as the collective consciousness. Together we will weave a space of ‘no-time’ and call forth our inner Priestesses to guide us to remember and embody this work.
Like the Level One Training, the teachings will be a combination of short lectures followed by experiential practices so that you have an embodied 'knowing' and 'remembering' of this work.
The four days will be deep and enriching as we complete rituals, initiations and experience joyful co-creation with our Sisters and our spirit allies.
On Sunday afternoon we will complete the Training with a Sacred Cacao Ceremony to celebrate your journey into the next level of service to the Sisterhood.
I couldn't be more excited to share this work with you all!
It is my greatest wish that the training awakens in you the confidence to weave your own unique medicine and feel confident to:
o Start to work competently and safely with The Medicine Wheel when holding your Sister Circles
o Deepen your understanding and relationship with your benevolent ancestors and how important this connection is for support and guidance as a space holder
o Learn about magical herbs and plants as allies that can assist when holding Circles and Rituals
o Offer Rites of Passage (Blessing-ways) and High Holy Day Celebration Circles (Solstices and Equinoxes) within your communities using the templates provided in the Manual
Additionally, the immersion will activate a deep 'knowing' that you are divinely guided on this path of service to the Sisterhood which in turn will allow you to trust your own unique gifts as you bring them forth to share with your community.
The concepts and teachings that are shared in the Level Two Facilitator Training are based on the work of many great teachers with whom I have had the privilege of studying under over the past 20 years.
As a student, practitioner and teacher, I always need to make sense of what I am learning on a personal level. I don't and won't take on concepts as 'truth' unless I have had a direct experience of the concept within my own life. This is the slower path, but ultimately for me, the truer path. Much of what is contained in this course has had many years of percolation in my life, until something clicks from 'understanding' to 'knowing'. It is from this place that I teach.
I feel strongly that I am divinely led to where I need to travel to, or what teacher I need to work with, or what course or workshop I need to attend. As such, over the last 10 years I have been on an intense journey of deep immersion in the world of magic, ceremony, ritual and Spirit. I have travelled to the lands of my ancestors to connect with the powerful frequencies of energy portals and sacred sites. I have sat with medicine women and men in ceremony whilst navigating different dimensional realities. I've co-created workshops on witch work, dream-weaving and spirit babies.
I have furthered my studies in Soul-Realignment - reading the Akashic Records with Andrea Hess and Geomancy / Earth Magic with world renowned teachers Jewels Rocka and Richard Creighton.
I have attended Plant Spirit Ceremonialist and Shamanic Practice Training with Sharon Bolt of Shamanic Energy Training and also participated in The Empress and the Dragon immersion and protocol which focuses on deep womb healing.
I have attended an Ancestral Medicine Immersion with Daniel Foor and am continuing to deepen my understanding and connection to this important work.
I have worked with herbs, and plants and crystals and spells and the list goes on...
It has been quite an initiation for someone who comes from such a mainstream academic background (MA in Counselling), but because of this, I practice a high level of scrutiny and discernment which I know has helped me sort the gold from the not-so-gold. I am grateful for everything I have called in, and my world is so much richer for embracing and exploring the greater mysteries of life beyond our perceived 3D reality.
I believe that we all have pieces of the puzzle. We all have our own unique medicine, and when we come together in the spirit of collaboration and a willingness to open our hearts and REMEMBER our truth, we re-awaken to the extraordinary magic that surrounds and inhabits us on all levels.
If you feel called to take the next steps on this path, I would love you to join me at my Sacred Space in Byron. Spaces will be limited to ensure individual attention and a non-refundable deposit of $250 will hold your place while you plan your finances and travel arrangements.
