Day 1 of our Shamanic Drum Making Workshop. What a gentle, grounding day. The women reflected on their birth stories, connected with their hides and hoops and each other. Tonight their hides bath in the living loving waters, and they dream themselves into being.

Dusk now, the spaces in between is where the magic happens.

One of the joys of sitting (or standing) in sacred circle is welcoming in the babies, the VIP's. If we are holding spaces for women, then we need to allow the babes in arms to attend too. I was delighted to hold a 10 week old boy so that his mother could journey with the drum for a healing ritual for her menarche. The fact that many of us need healing rituals for menarche is because our culture doesn't support menarche, or the menstrual cycle, cyclical living. It doesn't really support birthing mummas, and young parents either Our dominant culture does not put care front and centre. But we are changing the story, one woman at a time....and the ripples are happening, as each of the women restories her self, heals and grows more fully into herself.

I live and work on Boonwurrung Land, and each of us welcomed into this country is asked to obey the laws of Bunjil and specifically to care for the biik, the land (biik) and the bup bup, the children. Imagine if we all did this. It starts with each of us. Here's to holding the babies, and their mothers. Supporting them in this vital work of parenting the children and tending to themselves.

Such a pleasure to support my Co- teacher Jane Hardwicke Collings in the delivery of this MoonSong, Menstrual wellness and Cyclical living workshop.

Embodying the Cycles

Have a read of my latest newsletter here.
How lucky we are to have this beautiful marvel of a moon. How precious it is to watch her grow and fade each month, and to feel this energy shift within us too. How blessed we are as women to live the cycles within us during our menstruating years.
With Love https://mailchi.mp/c5358faf3c94/embodying-the-cycles

In these seasonal dances we remember to trust the ongoing rhythms of earth and moon dancing around sun.  We trust sunrise and sunset, waxing and full moon, waning and dark moon. We trust the rhythms within and without. We dance our joy, our grief, our waxing and waning energy, our growth and desce...

Preserving, bottling the Autumn harvest.

What are we preserving now in this time of pandemic. What outmoded ways of living can we let go of, so that we can all share in war the abundance? So that we can be part of the continuation of life, death, life?

Questions for these times.

We meet again in troubled times. For it is true we live in troubled times. And this is not such a terrible thing, though it can feel like it. Terrible times have been before and are right now for so many - even without the virus. And maybe this guest is just another reminder that there are other ways to live. Ways which respect life and death. Ways in which all people matter, human and more than human.

How we respond is always the thing, and what an invitation this is. To show up again and again with compassion, for self, for the small and for the large Self. The Self that is us all.

This is an excerpt from my newsletter...the poem below comes from Dori Midnight, whose flowering golden heart logo adorns this post.

Wash your hands
like you are washing the only teacup left that your great grandmother carried across the ocean, like you are washing the hair of a beloved who is dying, like you are washing the feet of Grace Lee Boggs, Beyonce, Jesus, your auntie, Audre Lorde, Mary Oliver- you get the picture.
Like this water is poured from a jug your best friend just carried for three miles from the spring they had to climb a mountain to reach.
Like water is a precious resource
made from time and miracle.

Wash your hands and cough into your elbow, they say.
Rest more, stay home, drink water, have some soup, they say.
To which I would add: burn some plants your ancestors burned when there was fear in the air,
Boil some aromatic leaves in a pot on your stove until your windows steam up.
Open your windows
Eat a piece of garlic every day. Tie a clove around your neck.
Breathe.

My friends, it is always true, these things.
It has already been time.
It is always true that we should move with care and intention, asking
Do you want to bump elbows instead? with everyone we meet.
It is always true that people are living with one lung, with immune systems that don’t work so well, or perhaps work too hard, fighting against themselves. It is already true that people are hoarding the things that the most vulnerable need.
It is already time that we might want to fly on airplanes less and not go to work when we are sick.
It is already time that we might want to know who in

It's a tea and crosswords morning here. Yes I've finished my hot cross buns...and the egg hunt won't happen until the teenagers awaken.

And so wondering about the birds in your back yard. What birds are calling you this morning?

For me its #Magpie warbling, #Raven cawing, #wattlebird hacking, and the budgies chattering . Clearly they are in an avery...not local here.

Hoping to get a few more of the regulars later today..And even a special avian visitor or two.

Would love to know what bird calls you are hearing.

And my teacup has a scarlet robin by Katherine Castle.

Oh now the #piedcurrawong has come too. I love her mournful call. And high overhead are the #rainbowlorrikeets .

Delighted this morning by dew on the grass.
Glistening bubbles of wetness.

By the sunshine and the shadows dancing across the lawn.

The picture doesn't capture it but I'm sharing anyway.
Share a photo of what around you is bringing delight this morning.

Juicy, soft delicious love to you all.

Its harvest time, and so we gratefully eat the fruits of the earth...grown themselves and with my mother's love. ( thanks mum)

And we remember too that decay, and death are part of the story too. Death holds life. And we must trust this, even with the necessary sense of loss.

These crisp clear autumn days are singing to us of present, and of what's to come..

Magic happens when you drum
Rippling out prayers of connection
Under a purple sky
Watching light fall
to earth
As the sun sets

Today we were to gather together.

The women were called to birth a drum.

They were called to work with and by worked on by Kangaroo and Deer and Hoop Pine. Together fashioning a shamanic drum, a frame drum, a drum their ancestors played.

We are remembering the time when the drummers were women. All over the world.

Here on Boonwurrung Country, the bagurrk ( women ) fashioned drums from walert (possum )skins. They played the rhythms, they yuuring-tilbuk (beat) their drums.

We are drumming in honour of all those who have drummed before, who are drumming again, and to those ready to make their own drums. We wait for the time.

We need again these ancient rhythms that women played. We need new rhythms now which once again honour life, her seasons, her ascent and descent.

In ceremony we drum for our earth, for the more than human, for the stories and ways of the women who drummed and are drumming anew.

Dear hearts
We meet again in troubled times. For it is true we live in troubled times. And this is not such a terrible thing, though it can feel like it. Terrible times have been before and are right now for so many - even without the virus. And maybe this guest is a reminder that there are other ways to live. Ways which respect life and death. Ways in which all people matter, human and more than human.

How we respond is always the thing, and what an invitation this is. To show up again and again with compassion for self, for the small and for the large Self. The Self that is us all.
