Awakening Feminine Leaders Invites You to:

The Women’s Council – A Call to Stand for Life

Circle Retreat 6th-8th October 2017


You’re invited to be part of an inspiring Circle of women change leaders who are dedicated to creating a new future for our world

The Women’s Council is hosted by Joey Walters, founder of Awakening Feminine leaders, in collaboration with TARA approach founder Dr Stephanie Mines; embodied movement specialist Deborah Jay-Lewin; Scottish novelist Margaret Elphinstone; Singer/songwriter Eleanor Brown and more, all of whom are co-participating.

How can we embrace our feminine wisdom and co-create a new culture of care of ourselves and our world?

At the heart of this circle retreat is a Wisdom Council; a deep inquiry and sacredly held space to tap into our collective wisdom and power as women. The practice of the wisdom council is rooted in ancient earth wisdom teachings and nature-based circle principles that will guide our inquiry. We’ll explore the most essential personal and collective questions we are holding about our role as feminine leaders in creating a cultural shift that breathes feminine consciousness and balance into our world.

The purpose of the council is not just to begin to answer these questions, but to empower every woman to become the answer

Whether you are aspiring to lead or being called to the next expression of your feminine leadership, this council is a opportunity for you to contribute to and recieve from the shared field of wisdom that we co-create. In a non-linear way, our intention is for this experience to resource you as a leader in whatever way you need that resourcing. It may be to:

  • Deepen confidence in your authentic voice and wisdom as a feminine leader.
  • Recognise the collective shadows and limiting stories that we carry as women and tap into the collective power of the circle to move beyond them.
  • Strengthen your courage to step forward with your Call to Stand wisdom
  • Strengthen trust in your embodied feminine wisdom  and inner guidance, so you can align with your souls potential and lead in a more feminine way
  • Receive resourcing and nourishment to nurture and sustain your well-being

Experience the power of our collective wisdom

Women’s councils were once held all over the world, in nature based communities that honoured the feminine and held a deep respect for all life. We will be following on the principles and practices of wholeness from these ancient wisdom councils, honouring the power of diversity and collective wisdom.

This timely gathering is a rare chance to connect with like-hearted women; coaches, artists, entrepreneurs, therapists, healers, writers and other ‘change leaders’ who are playing their part in co-creating a sustainable future for our children’s children.

Our 3 day journey will be highly interactive and co-creative experience, sharing wisdom, healing and inspiration. Although we will hold a light design, we’ll stay open to the emergence of what is needed for the circle and for our collective inquiry.

Our time in council will include open dialogue, collective ritual, systemic constellating, dance, story, personal reflection/journalling time in nature and time in circle around the fire. We’ll also have an ending of song and dance on Saturday evening with singer /songwriter , Eleanor Brown performing live.

Our primary aim as a circle is to hold a safe, honouring space in which each woman power is affirmed and to co-create a nurturing field of transformation from which all who participate will benefit.
