Our playful and holistic circles prepare, educate, and celebrate young people at the time of their Menarche (the first period) as a sacred rite of passage, empowering them for life.
FIRST MOON CIRCLES ARE CREATED TO EMPOWER CHILDREN TO FEEL PREPARED, INFORMED AND POSITIVE ABOUT...
what puberty is
and why their feelings, bodies, and awareness develops at this milestone.
how to care for their physical body, emotions, thoughts and spiritual selves
in the different phases of their menstrual cycle.
choosing the right period products for them
exploring options, how to use them, how to care for their body and the earth.
how to support friends and asking for help at home and school
from mums, family, friends and schools, including what is normal and not normal for tween / teen cycle health,
appreciating their changing selves across the phases of their cycle
asso they don't worry about their changing, and know how to honour themselves now and into the future.

a beautiful ceremony, craft and tea with mothers who share wishes and hopes, and role model that we can talk openly about periods!
GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT'S MISSING IN SCHOOL EDUCATION, WE ARE ON A MISSION TO HEAL MENSTRUAL SHAME AND CREATE PERIOD POSITIVE CULTURES FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS...
As a community, our facilitators are passionate about:
Normalising positive conversations about periods,
Promoting inclusion for all people to feel safe and able to have a period,
Healing the damage caused by menstrual shame which has been passed down the generations, and
Hosting safer spaces for all young people to be able to be their authentic selves, and experience the power of healthy sisterhood.
