Brighton, England UK with Kim Barnard

June 22 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

June’s First Moon Circle will be held on Saturday, June 22nd, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Fine Feather Wellness in Hove.
The workshop will be approximately three hours (the first two hours are just with the children and the final hour caregivers join us), over which time we will cover various topics including but not limited to:
  • Puberty and hormonal changes
  • The biology of the menstrual cycle
  • The Four Seasons model
  • Menstrual Cycle Awareness
  • Period products
  • What’s normal and what isn’t
  • Cyclical self-care
There will be plenty of space for ask questions and mothers/caregivers to share their experiences. At the end, there will be some grounding refreshments (all to support cycle health).
I am here to facilitate (sometimes difficult) conversations for you and your daughter about puberty, menstrual cycles, and periods so that they (and you) leave feeling empowered, educated, and prepared!! These conversations open the gateway to honest conversations about menstruation.
Research by The Victorian Women’s Trust shows that at the arrival of menarche, 50% of girls felt unprepared, 70% felt negatively towards it, and 9% had no idea what a period was.
Isn’t it time we changed those statistics and empowered the next generation of women to understand their bodies, cycles, and periods? Menstrual cycles are the fifth vital sign of health, yet we aren’t taught in any real depth about them. Let’s change the narrative!
What is the benefit of these circles:
  • period and puberty education
  • sharing empowering knowledge and wisdom so girls feel prepared for their period
  • a deeper understanding of their menstrual cycle and their cyclical nature
  • supports parents with accessible language and creating a community
  • a bonding experience for mother and daughters
  • healing shame around menstruation
  • a safe and sacred place to have open conversations and ask questions
  • rite of passage initiation
What is included:
  • period product introduction and play
  • first moon circle guide to take away and review
  • refreshments
  • special beading ritual
  • gift bags
What happens when we don’t acknowledge or celebrate our first period:
  • creates feelings of shame around menstruation
  • doesn’t realise or utilise the full power of the menstrual cycle
  • pushing through your bleed/ not valuing rest
  • not understanding your body leading to a loss of trust in your body and thus a disconnection from your womb and cycle
  • fear of the menstrual cycle
  • isolated and unprepared children
I am offering an early bird workshop rate of £60 until the end of May. To claim a place at this special rate, click HERE. The standard price after these places have gone will be £70.
Please note that sessions are a maximum of 8 girls.
