The Butterfly School

A place where women can Remember. Reclaim. Reconnect.

 

The Butterfly Mystery School is home to circles of women who wish to whole heartedly welcome all aspects of themselves. All women at all ages and stages of life are welcome. It is a process of deepening intimacy with your voice, body, creativity, sexuality, vulnerability and strength.

For too long we have followed narratives that tell us to work harder and change and reshape ourselves to a world whose tempo does not honour our natural rhythms. We have been asked to dominate rather than partner with what is here. Butterfly is a space that asks us to come home to what is underneath this reshaping. To ask who am I if I open to my own way to start this conversation? The best place to begin is where you are. From this ground, the ground we are standing on, we can meet ourselves and begin to feel what is longing to be felt.

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 and always were.

The Initiation Journey takes us into the emotional, sensual, visceral and spiritual landscape of our being. Together we adventure into different portals of our humanness and sacred practice. Following themes of womb wisdom, undressing the voice, breathwork, the wheel of consent, sexuality and creativity and finally integration. Whether you are just beginning this journey or have been on your path for lifetimes, this work will meet you where you are at and offers a community to walk beside, cry, laugh, tremble and dance beside.

The circle is forming will you join us?

I want to unfold, I don’t want to stay folded anywhere. For where I am folded, there I am a lie. ~ Rilke

The Heroine’s Journey dates for 2022 TBC

In my darkest night I found this story and it saved me…..time and again I see parched women drink from it’s nectar and begin to thrive.

The Inanna Ereshkigal Story is the map for our griefs, deaths and re-births and the honouring of our cyclical earthly nature. Hearing it can nourish the parts of us that have been parched for what feels like an eternity. Guided by the myth, magic and mystery we come together to remember, reclaim and reconnect to the old feminine wisdom in our flesh and bones. Creating a place to grieve, breathe, dance, sound and feel what has not been allowed or known, to journey home to our cyclical and sensual sovereignty.

Only open to those who have done the Initiation Journey.

If you have questions they are most welcome. I look forward to hearing from you.

Wildlife and the Wild Woman are both endangered species. Overtime we have seen the feminine instinctive nature looted, driven back and overbuilt. For long periods it has been mismanaged like the wildlife and the wildlands. The spiritual lands of Wild Woman have throughout history been plundered or burnt, dens bulldozed and natural cycles forced into unnatural rhythms to please others. It is not by accident the pristine wilderness of our planet disappears as the understanding of our own inner wild nature fades…The modern woman is a blur of activity. She is pressured to be all things to all people. The old knowing is long overdue” ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes
