Launceston, Tasmania (AUS) with Sharon Woolley

September 10 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Mums, Aunts, Grandmothers and carers of young girls….

Gifting girls across Tasmania with holistic menstrual cycle wisdom, confidence and practical tools to support a happy, positive and healthy experience of menstruation and puberty. This is a beautiful, empowering alternative to traditional and school based period education featuring craft, conversations, a very special parent/carer-daughter celebration, and a generous gift bag. A life-changing circle that you will both remember.
This Spring, in collaboration with the amazing West Tamar florist ‘Lily’, we are offering you a unique opportunity to celebrate puberty, menarche and the menstrual cycle by creating a gorgeous fresh flower crown with your daughter.
The flower crown will bring to life the four phases & ‘inner seasons’ of the menstrual cycle & act as a memorable keepsake for you both.
Like the seasons of the year, the inner seasons of the menstrual cycle have a characteristic feel which helps give meaning and understanding to the different feelings we experience across the cycle.
Sounds good? Join us in our cute & cosy bell tent, empower her with menstrual cycle wisdom, & honour your special ‘maiden’ as she transitions into womanhood

WHAT IS A FIRST MOON CIRCLE?

A First Moon Circle is a special occasion where people gather to sit ‘in circle’ to celebrate the very important and powerful rite of passage of a girl’s first period, also known as ‘menarche’ (men-r-key).  Before industrialisation, women’s menstrual cycles followed the moon or lunar cycles, and periods were referred to as a woman’s ‘moon time’. A ‘first moon’ indicated the very first period that a girl experienced, symbolising her transition to womanhood.

 First Moon Circles offer a very relaxed, really fun and unique yet safe, intimate and inclusive space for parents/carers and daughters/girls to gather together to learn about puberty and periods & to celebrate this upcoming or recent transition from girlhood to womanhood. Sitting in circle provides the perfect atmosphere for creating connection, for honoring and celebrating girls and women, and for handing down menstrual cycle wisdom from one generation to the next.

The knowledge gained during these circles through education, sharing and hands on experience, together with a gift bag packed full of period samples, cycle charts, take home activities for ongoing learning, and a ‘moon’ journal with prompts gives your child the perfect opportunity to feel prepared and confident about their first period, and their journey through puberty. Your child will gain valuable knowledge of the entire menstrual cycle, develop basic body wisdom, become empowered, capable and self-aware, so that they can support themselves physically, emotionally and spiritually as they enter their cycling years and adulthood. 

Celebrating in this way has a profound effect on the level of ongoing discussion you can have with your daughter after the circle. Girls leave feeling confident and excited about getting their period, cant wait to take you shopping for products, and start charting and moon or cycle syncing with you. Mums walk away with great tips for managing periods through perimenopause and a deep understanding of their cycle and inner rhythms – often with much head nodding and many ah-haaa moments during the circle and of course many giggles.
