There is a magic when women sit & share together. It is transformational, it is pure Alchemy.
I run groups and workshops for women in many different settings. My work is transferable and flexible and in addition to my private groups I also offer workshops for both public and private organisations, vulnerable client groups and the general public.

Menopause – When a Woman Becomes Her Power
Sunday 7th April – 11am – 4pm – Pranayama Yoga Studio, Top Floor, 36 High Street, Pershore
Who do you want to be? The Crone; the Wise Woman, Healer & Midwife;
As women, we are not being routinely informed of how to harness our hormonal cycles, either in menstruation or peri & menopause.
This session is for any woman wanting to reclaim themselves during this, potentially, most powerful stage of our womanhood.
Together through our sharings we will explore
the physical aspects of peri & menopause, and equally importantly the psychological & spiritual journey of what ultimately defines us as Women.

I AM WOMAN – Spring
Body-Rhythms & Alchemy Woman
From Sunday 28th April – 11-5pm – Top Floor, 36 High Street, Pershore
This is the first in a series of four sessions for women to explore their own sense of ‘self’. We are starting with Spring; an opportunity to reach toward or into your Winter Wise Woman, a time of retreat, turning upwards and all that means.
We are starting with Spring; an opportunity to revisit your maiden years, that’s birth to mid-twenties and all that meant . Looking at all you have brought forward to your here and now. Finding ways to transform and reframe some elements and celebrate others.. We will sit, share stories, get creative, ceremonial, vocal, physical and use therapeutic bodywork techniques. Using eclectic ways to look at women’s life passage through the lens of the seasons.
Our group will be moving through those early years, feeling into the spaces within. We will use voicework techniques to express the trials and tribulations. We will incorporate some gentle bodywork – some “holding” of our younger selves, some nurturing of the fragmented parts and some joyful expressions of our emerging womanhood.
Michelle and I are sacred sassy women and that’s how we work, with the profound and profane. You will sit in a safe space to share deeply and laugh equally.
We are women who are passionate about being the best we can be in this world. Together we focus on finding ways to smash down self imposed limitations and connecting deeper and deeper with ourselves and others.
With passion we will work to explore and transform our internal relationship and dialogue within. After all, how can we can have authentic relationships with others if we don’t know what our own authentic self is?
These gatherings are run as four linkable or stand-alone sessions; Summer on September 9th, Autumn October 14th and Winter 2nd December and similarly these will equate to the passage through our life’s journey.
If you book all four together you will receive a discount.
If you want to rap with us about this series, either call JoRae on 07769225086 or Michelle on 07443637063
March 15th – 17th 2019 – Gaunts House, Dorset
To celebrate Spring Equinox and following the resounding success of the Autumn retreat, the magnificent Gaunts House is hosting a second Women’s Wellbeing Weekend, led my myself and co-facilitated with Michelle Beagley, Body Rhythms.
WE are SO excited to offer you this sacred, safe space to share, to explore and learn from each other there present.
We will hold space for sacred circle time, women’s hormonal health focusing on reclaiming our Maiden years which also align, mirror and synthesise with Second Spring, our Menopause an empowerment spell, budding creativity session along with a Seeding Drumming Journey and en-chanting!
All this and daily stretch n’ movement, Friday night Ecstatic disco, a profound Sound Bath on Saturday night, culminating on Sunday with a Spring Rites of Passage Ceremony.
This weekend is all about YOU.
Gaunts House is a place of peace and deep learning, a natural and ideal setting for you to be nurtured and held. With amazing vegetarian menus, catering for any dietary requirements and warm, comfy rooms, you will be served with love and care.
Before we can authentically serve others, we must first be whole and well ourselves.
As women we are not routinely being educated to do this. This weekend will focus on providing you with a toolkit to fill with the practices of those of us who have explored, tried and tested insightful, yet often simple techniques and found them to be both healing and wholesome.
It will also include time for you to take some space in the ancient surrounding or choose to book one of only two 1-1 bodywork or reiki sessions.
Monthly Mindful Moments
Can’t seem to find a moment in your day to be fully present and aware of yourself and what you are doing?
These monthly sessions are bite sized thoughtful moments to give yourself permission to pause and come back to you being you.
With a mindful practice theme for each month, we will also take time to ‘be’ and surround ourselves with a comforting blanket of silence.
You are very welcome here.Book your place
Women’s Drumming Journeys
Sunday 7th April – 7.30-9.30pm – Pranayama Yoga Studio, Top Floor, 36 High Street, Pershore
I have been called to offer this exploration to women who are seeking a safe place to allow inner knowing and answers to rise to the surface and guide you forward. You don’t need anyone else to tell you what to do. You only need the safe space to hear yourself, where you can rest in your own healing, knowing that you are your own answer.
This Session Focuses On Meeting Your Ancestors, Those On Whose Shoulders You Stand And Those Who Have Your Back. To Discover And Honour The Power Of Your Lineage And Thank But Release The Toxic Content. Those Whose Unmet Yearnings Sit Now In Your Gift, To Acknowledge Then Make Your Own Conscious Choice To Implement Or Relinquish. For After All, What Do You Want To Pass On To The Next Generations? We Carry Seven Generations Worth Of Genetics Within Us; With The Power To Pass On Another Seven Generations Of Gifts And Yearnings. This Is A Truly Beautiful Yet Responsible Position To Hold.
Come Lie Down And Be The Lineage Breaker You Are Called To Be.
‘When a Woman finds herself, she has a mansion she can inhabit with dignity for the rest of her life’. Jennifer Lynn Clien
JLC is a Shaman. I worked with her for over five years. The drumming journeys she led contributed to profound changes in my life, outlook and vibration. Her work also led me to a much greater and deeper understanding of myself and ‘my place in the world’.
I have been called to offer this exploration out to other women who are seeking a safe place to allow your inner knowing and answers to rise to the surface and guide you forward. You don’t need anyone else to tell you what to do. You only need the safe space to hear yourself, where you can rest in your own healing, knowing that you are your own answer.
Come, lie down in your own cocoon of warmth and comfort and be soul drummed by me, into your own sacred inner world and all it wants to reveal. In these times of frenetic lifestyles, you are welcome to come and receive and be served.
This third session focuses on meeting your Power Animal. Animal energy is a powerful medicine and one we can use in our daily lives, once we know which animal seeks to currently guide us. Power animals represent our interconnection to all life, their qualities of character and their power, their inner self. The animal you meet today relates to your current challenges and will show you the way by taking you on a sacred journey. Let’s get started …
The setting for these sessions is the beautiful, gentle atmosphere of Pranayama Yoga Studio, top floor, 36 High St, Pershore, WR10 1DP. www.theartofpranayama.com
free parking available nearby.
There are only 12 spaces available per month. You are very welcome here.
These sessions are not suitable for pregnant women or those with either heart or brain conditions or devices, women who experience epilepsy or those suffering with severe mental health conditions, due to the rhythmic nature of the drum.

Alchemy Women Gathering
A monthly talking therapeutic space for sassy women’s sharing. Closed Group now running until July 2019.
This Women’s Group is an opportunity to really connect with yourself to share deeply and listen to one another. It’s a safe, creative and fun space where we all get to choose the monthly themes: those which touch our lives and affect us, as women in our past, present and future. Now, more than ever, with the crazy pace of daily life, we need a space and; time to reflect, to hear ourselves, be heard and witnessed in our sharing from the heart. This without judgement, without prejudice.
We also explore ourselves through Cognitive Behavioural and NLP techniques and some BodyTalk tapping. Both techniques help assist and ease some of the troubles and life patterns in which we can all get a bit stuck.
Call me for a free 20 minute chat to see if this is the group for you on 07769225086.
This is the third year of running this closed Women’s Group and I am constantly honoured and amazed by the women I sit with.
Group-work focuses on
- Empowerment and self confidence for women
- Reclaiming ME after childbirth
- Holistic Health & Happiness
- Food as Medicine: the link between nutrition and mental health
- Easy peasy mindfulness techniques
- Menstruation- When a Woman Steps into her Power
Menopause – When s Woman Becomes her Power
I offer many more practical and creative workshops to offer. If you have a specific area you would like me to explore, just get in touch to discuss it.
