“I believe First Moon Circles are special because they provide a unique environment for young people to prepare for menarche (the first period). They are helpful in providing information that parents themselves do not have or are not able to impart on their children, and are empowering as they acknowledge this rite of passage in a positive way.”
Charlotte Pointeaux is the creator of First Moon Circles and the Facilitator Training. She is a Cycle and Embodiment Coach, trained Youth Mentor, Teacher, Podcaster and has 13 years experience in the education industry. She is mother to three little girls and hopes passionately that they grow up knowing that periods are powerful and they can live the life of their dreams.
Charlotte digs deep from personal experience to show girls how to celebrate all that they are, and all that they’re becoming. She loves empowering young people in the way she wished she had been when growing up: with positivity, being heard, accepted and celebrated just as she was.
Charlotte created the First Moon Circle Facilitator Training to initiate passionate people into holding their own menarche circles for girls, and to share in her vision for inclusive, empowering, and holistic period education to become mainstream, so that people can support themselves emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually at the start of the menstrual journey and throughout their lifetime. She also coaches women to find harmony, health and happiness within their own cycles.
Charlotte holds First Moon Circles in her home region of the Southern Highlands NSW, holding seasons circles in Mittagong NSW, and also available to host private circles to celebrate individual girls and their friends as they approach or experience their first period.
