The birth of the Women’s Gatherings came from a craving to experience a deep, raw connection with other women, a craving for community, a craving for the power of the womb to be reclaimed and honored. It came from a craving for more ceremony and a craving to have a sacred space to rest in together and a craving to clear the personal and collective trauma of the womb and the divine feminine within that we all share in some form or another. Historically, women have gathered together and the time has come to reestablish this tradition so greatly needed.
I thank Lora Munn, my dear friend for being the midwife of this offering. We offered these gatherings for the first 8 months or so before I began to hold them on my own. I feel so blessed to have had her come into my life and take on the feeding of this craving together. She is a Mamma of three beautiful children and her heart called her to retract to allow more time with her family. I feel she blessed the space with her genuine heart before stepping out and leaving it with me to carry on. I will always thank her for that.
I have a history of facilitating Maya Full Moon Women’s Ceremonies since a couple years back. These ceremonies deeply involve the medicine of cacao and it is the Maya lineage that I have studied Womb Healing. Though the Women’s Gatherings are not this particular ceremony, this is where I built my relationship with the spirt of cacao and the spirit of the womb. I want to thank and honor my teachers Katie-Keath Silva, Ann Drucker, the Goddess IxChel who these Maya ceremonies are in name of, as well as Miss Beatrice Torres Waight - Maya Medicine Woman and dear friend of Katie-Keath and Ann’s who’s family the Maya Women’s Ceremony came from.
I hold this space with the intention for women to allow themselves to let go, where they can be held and hold one another. A space where they can connect and let spirit flow through them, a space for them to journey to their womb and find their power, voice, and wisdom within. My intention is to hold a space for you to release, receive and surrendered to the healing that is awaiting you.
These gatherings come from deep within my heart and it is an honor to hold this space and share what has been shared with me.
