The women will be running drop in sessions, some of these based on the work of  Shakti Malan (Author of Sexual Awakening for Women) , copies of this book will be available to purchase at the event. They will also giving advice and info on how to go about setting up your own redtent network. More details coming soon.

As part of this space, Jill Kettle will be running a lunchtime workshop,

Menstruation: sat nav of the soul – Cultivating awareness, creativity and healing through tending to the wisdom of our cycle.

A closed lunchtime session with Jill Kettle.

Jill Kettle is an acupuncturist, shadow work coach and doula. She co-created the Brighton Red Tent and is an activating force in women’s events in the Sussex area. She is passionate about bringing forth the wisdom of our souls, reviving our knowing of ourselves as wisdom keepers, and finding ways to bring feminine power into community. Her perspective is that we are in a process of reseeding and remembering our deepest truths, and that bringing forth of these qualities is instrumental to our healing at this time, as individual women and also of the world.

Most of us were not guided as young women to learn how to use wisely the oceanic potential of our cycles. To understand the different natural powers expressing themselves at different times and how to listen to the messages they bring. This is not about learning information from the outside, this is the journey of how we can grow our awareness of our deepest blueprint to to garden ourselves into wholeness and to be guided from within, leading lives of authenticity, creativity and fullness of expression.

Our cycle is a microcosm of nature’s great turning wheel, with all the lessons of that cyclical journey coded into it. When we honour our cycles as sensitive tools of guidance, knowing how to support the restorative, cleansing and creative qualities, and hold the tension of the capacity our cycle has to take us to the place of inner critic and destroyer, we can harness the enormous natural force that it embodies and deeply enrich our own lives and that of our communities.
