Earth Women Rising
A community of women freeing themselves to heal our world
It’s hard to express how honoured I am to witness the growth and transformation that happens in this empowering space, where a sisterhood of courageous women come together to add their vibrant threads to the weaving of richer, fairer, life-sustaining societies.
Awakening to the issues we face today is painful and life-changing. Becoming aware of the depths of the climate crisis, the prevalence of inequality including racism and sexism both within and without, the likeliness of societal, economical and ecological collapse, is devastating. And it’s necessary. After the dark void of winter’s grief, we can trust that the warmth of spring will draw us up again. With growth comes new vision, and with our eyes open we can see the path ahead that leads to a better world.
This community is specifically for people who identify as female, for three reasons. Firstly, the patriarchal system has done a frustratingly good job of oppressing women; eroding our self worth and self belief, sending us way off course from the true feminine beings we were born to be, encouraging friction, competition and mistrust between us, and generally thwarting our power at every turn. Secondly, the world is in crisis because the balance of feminine and masculine energy is way way WAY off. The world has forgotten to nurture, to love, to restore. Humankind has strayed woefully far from our role as stewards of this beautiful earth. By reclaiming our true, wild feminine selves we begin to redress that balance, sending ripples out into the world that spread compassion, love, healing and invite others to rise with us. Finally, holding space for women to emerge authentically and heal the world is the zone where my power and passion intersect. It’s what I was born to do.
I am an HCPC registered dramatherapist walking my own journey to wholeness, inviting you to open your heart to healing, and to feel empowered to act. This is a community, we’re in this together, we support and nurture one another, sharing our gifts as we go.
This is our time to rise up free, whole and empowered for the sake of the planet and all our futures, if we cherish having one. We are the women we’ve been waiting for and we are rising.

*I chose the image above for this page as it evokes strong feelings of women rising together. I created it using a technique called visual medicine and gave it the title “Rising Like Giants”. This is the free-writing I did about it afterwards;
“Up up in colours bright, light, leaning, merging, together, apart. Blurring at the edges, bleeding into the world like a soupy fog across the land. Others coming to join, led by hearts of fire, alight with love and knowledge. Leaning into the warmth, the colour, flowing together, dancing like brightly burning candles. Illuminating the shadows of the earth, gentle smoke like a thousand spirits free at once, laughing, dancing, rejoicing in the air. Who comes here, all alike, all of different colour, shape. Minds and hearts joined, in love and life.”
