Growing Bodies and Cycle Wisdom for mothers and daughters aged 9 - 12
Time & Location
About the event
Puberty is a special time in a girl’s journey, rich with growth, change and discovering the world within and without. It can also be daunting and a little excruciating to put into words. Many girls find it an uncomfortable topic, yet are full of questions.
This workshop aims to gently unfurl the wonders of puberty and menstruation. We create a warm and welcoming space where we gather around a central altar. We open the circle by checking in and ease into the morning with a gentle activity to create a safe container. We use story, activities, craft and conversation to guide us through the beauty and practicalities of the girls' growing bodies and their menstrual cycle, using the four seasons as a metaphor for traveling through each lunar phase. We present the anatomy in a fun, visual and interactive way with opportunities to ask questions both into the circle or anonymously.
This circle is a beautiful opportunity to strengthen and celebrate the mother/daughter bond, to build trust, openness and to normalise these conversations within the home.
