Modern Medicine Circle





I am privledged to create this unique experience, a safe space where courageous women can take bold steps in discovering and declaring who they really are: their full, true, Authentic Selves.

It really is my signature event, into which I’ve poured all that I have learned, been taught, witnessed and experienced in my life to date — from working inside women’s prisons, to the shanty towns of South Africa, to the deepest places in the Amazon.

I’ve distilled all of my wisdom into this beautiful heartfelt Sacred Modern Medicine Circle; every woman’s story that I’ve felt, every broken heart I’ve held, every courageous step I’ve witnessed, deepens the safety of this circle and opens the portal and opportunity for profound transformation.

In this full day workshop you will be held, supported and guided in the discovery of your very own medicine configuration, a crucial step in offering your unique contribution to the world.

This unique combination of soul aspects will not only allow you to shine as the brightest version of yourself, but also raises the vibration of the collective feminine.


What to expect:

  • An immersive Shamanic journey to find your Spirit guides and speak with your ancestors

  • Ancient Rituals to discover your Sun and Moon Medicines

  • Earth-based wisdoms & teachings

  • One-on-one coaching

  • Heartfelt sharing with a conscious community of like-minded women

  • Self-discovery through journaling

  • Deepened connection to your newly awakened sisterhood

  • A beautiful, nurturing ‘Medicine Bag’ to take home

  • A nutritious lunch, snacks, and tea

  • A 90 minute followup group Zoom call to assist with integration and build our community



What are our Medicines?


For the challenges we face and the dreams we hope to realize, we have a range of inner medicines to call on. These are the gifts and qualities, in unique combination, that were planted inside of us when we entered this world.

Sadly, you and I both were somehow taught to hide away the gifts that made others feel uncomfortable, to turn down our shining light or to play particular roles to win approval and love. This means that the most important and most rewarding work of our adult lives is to uncover, reclaim and express these medicines. That is the work of this series, to claim our power, find our voice and embody the qualities with which we are specifically blessed.

What is the Modern Medicine Circle?

I am creating this circle as a container where we can confront our real-life fears, challenges and opportunities in the company of other courageous women.

In this space I will lead us to journey within and explore our medicines. We’ll work to access the Sun Medicines and amplify their impact in our lives. Some of these are available to all of us, our human qualities of wisdom and compassion, playfulness and trust. And we will acknowledge with compassion our Moon Medicines (shadow) lest they throw us off-track or sabotage our efforts.

Each month we will shine a light on a specific medicine that will serve us all, working to remove all that stands in the way of us accessing and embodying that particular quality. So expect to shine light in shadowed corners, confront real challenges, share your experiences and be inspired by others in the circle, and ultimately get access to new possibilities that arise from learning to embody your medicines.
