Red Owl Women’s Lodges
Awakening the Ancient Feminine Mysteries
Her spirit is alive within every woman
In our blood, and our skin, and our bones
Her ancient wisdom is awakening
In our hearts, and our bodies, and our souls
Her mystery and magick continues birthing itself
From the universal womb of wakhan
Out through the passage of life into this world as we know it
And also into every grandmother, woman and girl
Let us come together and celebrate
Let us seat her within our own wombs
Let us invite her to dream with us
To flame us on
To awaken us to our inner knowing
To our acceptance
That we are. Beautiful. Magickal. Powerful.
That we are the walking temple of Wakhan
The Universal Womb
The spirit of Red Owl guides us into the matriarchal teachings of our feminine nature.
A woman’s womb is a vessel for transformation and magick. Her natural cycles grant access to powerful mysteries of rebirth. It is from this powerful place that she can heal, shift and birth herself into her true nature. This is her celebration, her give-away to the world.
The womb is also most often the holding place of our deepest trauma, pain and wounding. It can be described as the driving seat of the self, which can result in low self esteem, lack of self confidence and a holding back from living when it isn’t consciously cleansed and cleared regularly.
If we are to birth ourselves into who we truly desire to be – our ‘natural self’, then we must learn to harness this power. It is our birthright to honour, celebrate and love being a Woman. To hold the sacred temple that is our physical body with intimacy, respect and care.
We gather together in Women’s Lodges: sisters, mothers, daughters and grandmothers, to heal the wounding of our past, find comfort in our own skin and show up for each other in our authenticity.
Are you ready to journey into the depths of your mystery and embody the wisdom within your womb?
Then come and explore the depths of your mystery, reclaim yourSelf and embody the wisdom within your womb.

The Moon Lodge is a New Moon Women’s Circle that gathers every month. We come together in support of ourselves, one another and our connection to grandmother earth.
It depends who is present and what is needed, both individually and collectively that informs each gathering.
Using ancient ritual, ceremony, conversation, sharing, healing, journeying etc we connect to the elements and powers of creation and the ever present cycle of sister moon.
The Moon Lodge also hosts Rites of Passage related to our feminine unfolding as and when they are needed.
We welcome women of all ages from girls who are about to or have already begun their bleeding, to great great grandmothers.

Using the matriarchal teachings as our vehicle, we journey into the mysterious differences and the profound similarities of the feminine and masculine to find balance and wholeness.
To sit in this women’s teaching lodge takes a commitment to yourself, and a willingness to confront the dissonant patterns holding you back from self-love and living in your naturalness. It demands a firm dedication to healing the relationship between your inner man and outer woman as you refine your character and develop your maturity.
These Teaching Lodges take an experiential approach, incorporating a variety of teachings, tools and guided processes.
You are encouraged to become your own disciple – to search and reflect within, allowing ‘what needs to be seen’ to arise, and use the energy of the circle to clear it away. The more actively you participate in the process, the more you will gain from the experience.
Are you ready to be inspired by the powerful woman within?
If your curiosity has brought you this far, then you probably are!

They speak to the four faces of your feminine & how these faces have profound relevance in your everyday life. They can also help you to find more flow rather than the overwhelm of responsibility & doing for others. There will some sharing of teachings, exercises, discussions & personal inquiry.
– A strong, safe container, a sacred space to hold & support you through the process as you relax into the embodiment of your most sacred & natural self. This is a ceremony, one of many we will explore together.

– To laugh, cry, dance, rest, learn, talk, share, rattle, howl & release your wonderful wild woman…
