Fairy/Maiden - Witch/Femme Fatal - Healer/Mother - Crone/Sage

1. In the beginning, feminine magic comes from the fairies. They are pure and loving, they are magical and whimsical creatures, they are tiny creatures that can appear and disappear in the blink of an eye. We’ll explore the magic of our early years (and of our daughters’ early years). What have you grown up with? What have you been attracted to? Discover the roots of your belief system around your magic. What are the roots of your belief system around the femminine and magic?

2. Once we encounter the blood of our menses we switch to the witch’s phase of our life. While the maiden is innocent and virtuous, the femme fatale is cunning, sly and worldly. Our magic switches to the potion of attraction, purpose, sexuality, the discovery of our femminine powers and the power of procreation. Our womb communicates with us monthly, beckoning for relation. Oneness with God(ess), oneness of human relation, oneness of force, oneness of time, oneness of purpose. Here we learn the initiation rites, the phases of the moon, the fertility of our body. We let them 'control" our cycle with drugs, or learn the dance of fertility? We deepen the our relationship with the womb, the healing qualities of the vaginal steam bath, aromatherapy and herbs that help during menstruation. At this stage we explore our heart, intimate relationships, we discover our self through tools such as numerology, astrology, intuition, meditation, dance and yoga.


3. As we turn into mothers/healers/shamans we explore the Fibonacci spiral of creation.The Fibonacci Sequence which is tied to birth of all things. Sacred Geometry the way in and out from and to the material world. Birth, death, rebirth. Learn its rituals, how do you tap into its magic? Here we explore the rituals that we introduce to our little ones to help them navigate the new world. Ritual for us, for our companions during this fundamental change. We discuss infusions that help after postpartum (belly binding), physical healing therapies, emotional, spiritual re-birth birth. Exchange the rites of closing the bones. We will share perineum, scars, and lactating breasts care. We'll explore the return to the mother to the self after breastfeeding is done, however long that is. We discuss the preparation, rituals and self-care for the mother whose flock is matured and ready to flee the coop.


4. Finally, we explore the crone/wise archetype, often associated with the supernatural or otherworldly, providing the heroine (fairy/maiden – witch/femme fatal – mother/healer) with amulets, magic spells and other wisdom or devices that may help her on her journey. This archetype is like the “fairy godmother” bringing the cycle onto itself. The crone can also be a character like the seer or oracle that provides advice or predictions of the future, though the crone often delivers messages with more questions than answers. The crone at times is bitter or useless, powerless or needy. What type of crone will you be? What is the magic of your legacy? Here we will explore the alchemy of menopause, and herb wisdom and hormones. The preparation for this period of exuberance, freedom, sadness, wisdom, meditation, radical change.
