The Womb Ceremony's Story
Your body will tell you when it's your time.
It may come as a quiet yearning
to heal something un-nameable;
to unite with something
you didn’t even know was missing.
It all began at Chartres Cathedral in France, which is a powerful Sacred Altar of Earth.
Long before the Christians built their sequence of churches and today's cathedral, there's been a Temple dedicated to the Goddess at this site since the time of the Ancient Druids in Central Europe - and probably long before that.
Serendipitously, 9 months after I returned from the induction and initiation my Womb received directly from the Earth there, I mustered up the courage to hold the first one of these Ceremonies from my living room in Northern California. It was July 2007 and I called them "The Womb Blessing" back then.
They have evolved me and so of course, the Ceremonies have evolved, too.
After I moved to Australia in 2011, I changed the name to "The Womb Ceremony".
I stopped holding the local ceremonies for a while, because something new was gestating around them.
I waited and I waited.
Then it finally began to emerge - a potent new format for offering these globally to Women all over the World in the cosiness of their own homes.
I wish to acknowledge the inspiration that Arion Light's potent Life Work with Creative Mastery / Activation Program has ignited for these new Womb Ceremonies and for his generous permission for me to 'Wombify' and make my own way with what I've embodied as a result of working / playing / creating with him. Thank you.
I must also acknowledge the incredible life work of Alexandra Pope & Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer that they've published in WILD POWER. Their contribution ignited the ancient wisdom of Healing & Creating in concert with the Menstrual / Lunar Cycle for me, so that I've been able to align these ceremonies upon a template of this profound natural rythmn, now.
The profound unconditional holding by Sh'ana Shean & Kaggi Valentine during my rites of passage over 13 moons, provided the fertile soil for this new octave. Thank-you Beloveds.
It is such an honor to finally be facilitating these in a way that can reach Women everywhere On Earth . . . in concert with The Cyclic Order Of The Earth's Mineral Kingdom because it's with the Earth that these all began!
