“I want to unfold, I don’t want to stay folded anywhere because there I am a lie” – Rilke
The Butterfly School is home to circles of women who wish to whole heartedly welcome all aspects of themselves. It is a process of deepening intimacy with your voice, body, creativity, sexuality, vulnerability and strength. A place where women can risk diving into the unknown landscapes of being as a pathway to liberation and transformation.
Butterfly is a mystery school that holds deep reverence for that wisdom which is both embodied within us and beyond us. Through movement, mudra, poetry, voice, yoga nidra, breathwork and creative enquiry this work invites us to new frontiers within ourselves, helping build courage to relinquish what we are not to become more of who we are.
Next year, 2021 will mark 7 years since the Butterfly work was seeded here in Sheffield and now it’s form is changing shape again. Over lockdown it has become clear to me that the Inanna – Erishkegal work is the work of now. So from 2021 the Heroine’s Journey will now form the main body of the work.
Therefore from 2021 Butterfly will be a 6 month initiation journey followed by a 9 month Heroine’s Journey.
The Initiation Journey takes us into the emotional, sensual, visceral and spiritual landscape of our being. Over 6 months we adventure into a different portal of our humanness beginning with womb wisdom, undressing the voice, breathwork, the wheel of consent, sexuality and pleasure and the naked heart. A key aspect of Butterfly is the inclusion of emotionality as a valid and vital part of being fully alive in our humaness and emotionality as a part of spiritual practice. The course invites us to the places within that have been calling out to us but that we never dared visit until now…
