Women’s Rose and Fire Celebration
Oct 28 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm$150
Women are the Rose. We are also Fire. Join us to celebrate the sweetness, passion, strength and beauty that is you, dear sisters.
We begin the day with settling in. A fire is warming us in the late October morning. Around the fire we have fabrics, petals, beads, shells, ribbons and sweets. We are making an offering. We are making a Despacho. Each one of us is speaking and sharing from her heart, her body, her life. We are making prayers for ourselves and our communities.
We then gather around the fire and witness each others beauty. We sing and drum a powerful heartbeat of vibrancy and colour. And we allow the fire to feed us, to fuel us, to bring alive our power and passion.
Next we rest for a while. A gorgeous vegan, gluten-free lunch is served as we laugh, chat and connect over the embodied act of sharing food.
After lunch we study archetypes of the feminine. Drawing on North American Indigenous teachings, we look at our shadows as well as our creative capacities. We look especially at how these archetypes manifest in and through our womb and our mother line. This is intensive inquiry, with so much richness in the stories to anchor us.
Brining our morning of prayer, song and inquiry together, we then dance. A delicious warm up, breathing and stretching builds into a most beautiful dance of grace. Drawing on Persian and Sufi Dance as well as Natural Movement, we celebrate our beauty and move collectively. Our feet slide across the floor. Our hands make beautiful patterns. Our hips guide us as we circle. We sweat. Maybe we cry. Perhaps we become ecstatic. And at the close, we rest for a bit of silence and integration. A guided meditation if it feels appropriate.
To close the day we return to the fire. Our offerings have been piled and waiting next to the glowing embers. Raking the embers apart, we offer the depths of our selves to the fire of our ancestors. This part of the work is in the style of Despacho from the South American traditions. Our prayers are more than prayers for ourselves, they are prayers for earth and all women.
A celebration. A ritual. A healing. A connecting. Bringing the various lineages Hannah carries together, this day is a brief immersion into what womb and women’s work is like with Hannah.

‘I cannot put into words how beautiful this journey has been. Hannah held such an incredible loving space for all of the ladies. The love, generosity, wisdom, gratitude that she brought to the work was breathtaking. That you so much Hannah, I will be forever grateful for your energy.’
‘Dearest Hannah, I have had the most amazing journey with you. My transformation has been miraculous. Your teachings and songs are so captivating. Your dedication is unwavering. I truly enjoyed the whole experience. Thank you for witnessing me.’
‘Dear Hannah, your wisdom through stories, songs and silence brought about important reflection, deep introspection and changes in my life and in myself that I had been wishing for. With your guidance, I found courage and trust to step on the path that is true for my soul. I loved journeying with others women, their stories and transformations reflected parts of me I have not paid attention to. Sisterhood is so strong. Your perspective on women’s leadership changes how I see it and how I wish it manifests for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.’
