Body Love ~ Mareeba ~ Circle, Dance & Sound Journey for Women ~ with Kathy Popplewell

February 10 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm AEST

Are you a deep feeling, big hearted and caring woman who is always busy tending to everyone, and everything else?

Has your body been missing out on the full care, attention and love it needs to be well and thriving as you’ve been compelled to tend to all the many other things first?

Are you missing the connection to your body?
To your passions and things that light you up and make you feel lighter, playful and joyful?

Are you hard on your body or have unsupportive feelings towards it? Would you like to expand into more love, joy, acceptance and playfulness within your body? Or change the legacy of relationship to your body as a woman for future generations? For you, your daughters or granddaughters?

Perhaps even create healing through your linage back in time for your mother, your grandmothers or great grandmothers.

Perhaps you come from a long line of women who give, give and give and you’ve realised this is not sustainable for you and it’s time to make a change and change this pattern so that you can be well and thrive also?

Or maybe you are a woman who already has made it a priority to put your self care high on your list of priorities and you enjoy any opportunity to get together with other woman and nurture yourself and fill up your energy tank as a woman, as you know this help you to have more to give and radiate out for others when you are giving from overflow instead of giving from a depleted state….

Come along and join us for some self care as a woman and a connecting, nourishing, releasing and uplifting morning of woman time, connection, the sharing of women’s wisdom, body love, laughter, dance and relaxation with a supportive and safe circle of women.

“Kathy is a medicine woman to her core, just talking with her I experience healings, her events are well thought out, well prepared and WILL leave you transformed energetically. They have been my safe space to be held many times when transversing tough times over the past 10 years”

Tegan Rein ~ Life Coach & Author ~ January 2024

“Attending a ceremony with Kathy Is like being at one with nature. She doesn’t call herself a healer but she is !
The sacredness of her magic is something to be experienced and unforgettable .The fact that she has lived deeply in reverence and harmony within nature for so many years is evident with how she intertwines the elements within ceremony. She is humble, and a true goddess of this earth. I highly recommend experiencing her offerings to connect with self and Mother Earth . You may even be transported to a place you can only dream of.”

Niomi Reardon ~ Nurse and Women’s Circle & Retreat Facilitator ~ November 2023

“Thank you soooooo much for today, I felt so safe and was so inspired and can’t wait to start to reach out and reconnect with other goddesses . Today was spectacular! You held the most nurturing and creative space and I definitely felt like I was coming home- in style! What a beautiful bunch of women I got to meet today”.

Diana Rain ~ Mama and Nurse ~ June, 2021

“I have been to many of Kathy’s Women’s Circles and recently joined her Ancestral Women Circle and Dance Journey. As usual, it hit a beautiful target in me. I was feeling quite separate and unsociable when I arrived after a hard week, but listening to the other women share in circle drew so much compassion from me. Like always, I felt that as different as our details might be, we are all sharing the same one path. The same aches, pains and breakthroughs of waking up to who we are and healing our wounds and those of our ancestors. The barriers of judgment and criticism, my own ancestral wounds, melted and gave way to a feeling of unconditional love and softness. During the dance journey, Kathy guided us confidently from a space of nurturing our own individual ancestral hurts to an elaborate and beautiful artwork filled with the all the colours, qualities and strengths of our lineage. Then she drew us magically into a shared space where even the shyest and private among us were joined together in a feeling of courage, joyous sisterhood and mutual support. So freeing and fortifying at the same time. Thank you Kathy. I will continue to show up wherever you are holding Women’s Circles.”
