Wholly Healed Radiant Woman
Wherever the feminine has been honoured in a culture, down through the ages, women have made special times for being together as women. A time to nurture, support, ‘sort the seeds’, inspire each other to live empowered & fulfilled as women, & celebrate – recognised & appreciated by other women, in your beauty & power. This is just such a time for sharing strength, vulnerability & to touch & realise more fully the deep mysteries of receptive feminine essence. At this gathering of women being together you will remember or learn to appreciate how truly unique each of us women is, & how to live fully in your body, celebrate & enjoy your sexuality, your relationships & your life. .
Come to see the beauty in all women & accept all their colours of being, too. This deepens your self-love. Time to delight in your sensitivity, to laugh from your belly, find your voice & have space to share your story, your joys & struggles in becoming fully conscious, & be with others as they share theirs, be held safely if this is a time of intense emotion or transition, enjoy & relax in time to BE together in an inspiring & supportive atmosphere. Come, remember how you as woman have been & can now be honoured as a physical incarnation of love, & for your easy connection with the divine mystery of being.
These day & weekend retreats can become a vital resource on this spiralling Secret Garden journey in which we come to love ourselves in the bodies we have, in the lives we live, in the woman we are, opening fully to what is touching us now, & finding the love for giving to those others in our lives, & to touch & enhance the lives of those in our communities.

- I feel I am learning in your circles that I can own the woman I am, all her moods and passions and sensitivities. I experienced great wisdom, beauty, authenticity and found Joy’s facilitation extraordinarily responsive and her reflections have really helped me see where I can find more freedom – and that is happening every day now. I found Joy and also many of the women in the circle to be inspiring role models. That gave me a way of sensing what was possible for me as I move into the next phase of my life.

- I’ve realized that other women can be my friends, that I can lean on them and trust them and show them more of me than I ever imagined. My trust has deepened in my own being and my own sex, and my friendships are richer for that, as is my relationship with my mother

- You know how to say the right kind and loving words. you are so real and human.. I love your woman's warm wisdom. You have a gift to make the other, to feel heard. that is a blessing. I 'feel' between the lines that you know what I try to share and where my words might fail you read with your heart. Thank you. You have been a very a healing, reassuring and calming influence on me.
Heidi Ovarassi, Findhorn
- Wonderful – I’m back in touch with softness, tenderness, compassion, peace, acceptance, connection. I had been bracing myself to cope with life for so long, and I was able to let go and surrender – and fall back into myself. Thank you for providing such a nurturing, supportive and beautiful space to enable me to do that
