So what are the Roots of the Feminine?

Our Roots are our foundation:

Our sources of self-care and healing.

Our Roots are the Timeless Wisdom Teachings that support

the unique, life-giving abilities of our female bodies!

This is our foundation!!

This is what feeds us!

shadow-ornament

How do we nourish our roots?

By becoming aware of them, taking time for ourselves, believing ourselves to be worthy. By opening up in conversation and community with each other.

How do we treat our bodies? What do we think about our bodies? How do we approach menstruation? or fertility, or birth? What do we think we are capable of? And what do we draw on for support?

We have a wonderful circle of women here, to help us honor the aspects of ourselves that make us uniquely female, and treat our bodies and our lives - our way of being in the world, and the things that matter to us - with respect and care.

Do you ever hear yourself asking?

  • Are you burnt out, putting yourself last, and running on empty?
  • Are you tired of living in a culture that demeans your body and experiences?
  • Are you done with messages that deny your strength and power?
  • Are you so over the trivialization of all things feminine?
  • Are you ready to learn things you should have learned long ago about your fertility, menstrual cycle, and self-care?
  • Are you disconnected from your own roots of meaning and fulfilment?
  • Do you feel like there must be more for you than what you are currently experiencing?

Barbara Hanneloré

The Power of the Menstrual Cycle with Barbara Hanneloré

Growing up in the hills of Northern California, I spent a lot of time outdoors and developed a deep connection with the earth. Mt. Shasta was visible from my yard, and has always felt like home to me.

As a young adult I spent many years living close to the earth; farming and gardening, working with young children, gathering wild herbs, and joining with friends for seasonal rituals.

I took many silent retreats in nature, communing with the living earth and living Spirit. All those years have become the foundation of my work.

As I learned about the similarities between women's cycles and the moon and seasons, I realized that this was a powerful rhythmic connection, bringing us into harmony with the natural world and its healing gifts. It is something to be supported, not suppressed!

Those experiences moved me to receive additional training in things that interested me, which I still continue to do! After receiving my BA, and while I was taking Expressive Arts training in Santa Rosa, CA, I met the late Tamara Slayton in 1993.

I was charmed and fascinated by the way she wove so much meaning and beauty into her work about the menstrual cycle. It was her mission to help women and girls to know the depth of nature's wisdom that was operating within them. It has now become mine as well! My study with Tamara enhanced what I had already learned about the "Moon Lodge" practice of many cultures around the world, in which women's cycles were seen as reflecting nature's cycles, with a balance of activity and rest – one of the keys to optimal health!

Now, my work on reclaiming a positive experience of menstruation for women seems to pull together everything I love – health, nature, creativity, ceremony, the Sacred, and the emerging Feminine: honoring female perspective and experience.
