TENDING THE FIRE, ST
Connecting with the wisdom of the body &
fanning the fire of our longing
18 January - 8 March
8-week closed group, online
Tuesdays 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
An invitation ... To journey inside ourselves [and remember] - a journey of re-imagining, re-membering, re-embodying
What if we reframed all of our challenges as opportunities? As invitations to grow, expand or flip the lens through which we view/frame the world? As love notes from the universe intent on prompting us to vary the dance?
Welcome to the women's journeying group-an opportunity for deep connection.
We are in a time of collective and personal disconnect from what nourishes and inspires us - the source of life. The systems, within which we are all deeply woven, collude to keep us dis-connected with false promises that leave us empty and wanting, anxious, depressed and isolated.
The journey aims to bring us back to a sense of belonging and connection which is essential for health and well being.
This is a journey of re-membering -our authentic voice and expression, re-membering lost and abandoned parts of ourselves. It is both a personal and transpersonal work of soul recovery, healing and empowerment. It is a journey of
grief, sorrow, rage, despair, beauty, joy, peace, forgiveness, and acceptance
This is a journey to support our desire to live fully.

The women's journeying group has a one-year cycle, but can also progress to two years for those who want to go deeper into the work. It is a closed group of no more than 8 allowing for deep interaction, intimacy and sharing.
The purpose of the group is to open more fully to inner knowing, higher self, and all that guides and supports us. To bring healing to aspects of ourselves that prevent us from feeling connected and living authentic lives.
Often we have a sense that we are being authentic, but we know that there is something missing. As we journey into these feelings there are many valid reasons that we have learnt to hide, protect, shut ourselves down or defend ourselves. This however, can leave us with a feeling of being 'dis-connected'. These behaviour’s become outdated in time, and can get in the way of our connection to the source of life, and to our capacity to have truly meaningful and deep relationships with all beings.
In order to access some of these wounded places, and the stories we carry, safety is paramount. The journey and the energy of the group provides the possibility of experiencing how it is to be held, and witnessed. For some women it is the first time aspects of themselves have ever been witnessed, which can be transformative in itself. Through practices and tools, we learn to embody that holding and witnessing for ourselves.
As a part of that journey we are inevitably confronted with all that contradicts our highest expression - the places of hurt, rage, grief, despair, longing, abandonment, loss, and all that in makes us human. It is not our purpose to get rid of these places, but to befriend, witness and eventually learn to hold ourselves fully, so that we are in an empowered place, at the centre of or being, co-creating our own lives.
In the group we use shamanic tools- journeying, ceremony, movement and questing as well as processing tools. It is deep soul work, and a mixture and culmination of all that Fiona has used and worked with in her life journey to date
Format for the year.
You will have an individual session and a group meeting once a month. Over the year the group meetings will include one fire ceremony, and a 'night out' questing on the land.
Prior to joining the course you will be required to have had at least 2 individual sessions with Fiona.
£160.00 per calendar month which covers a one to one session with Fiona and one group day.
This can be paid in full in advance or monthly.
(By joining the group you commit to paying for a group and a session per month, even if for whatever reason you have to miss a group or session).
Fiona’s work takes many forms but in some way all the threads of her work are concerned with ‘soul’, healing, supporting and enabling people to be more present and connected in their lives.
