Songs and Initiations of Womanhood
Rites of passage, initiations and celebrations serve to distil and value changes in our lives, giving our journeys different meanings as we travel through our experiences of womanhood. We mark the passing of time through transformations in our bodies, the flow and ebb of bleeding, the shifting shapes of face and womb. The sacred house of women exists inside the spirit of our gatherings; the remembered voices of our ancient mothers sing of our common bonds as women and our universal prayers. These songs reach to the core of the transitions that define us as women as they travel through first blood, spiralling motherhood, precarious midlife, being elders and deep into our shamanic bones.
