JOIN THE FIRST ROUND OF FACILITATOR TRAINING
and learn to hold your own First Moon Circles!
★ Passionate about teaching girls how powerful their body and periods are?
★ Disappointed with the limited sterile school education currently provided which touches on basic biology and reproductive risks - and is completely devoid of empowerment, celebration, cycle awareness and self-care wisdom?
★ A believer in the power of sacred rites of passage, and wish menarche was widely celebrated instead of shushed and shamed into secrecy?
If you shouted HELL YES to any of this, and feel called to step into period-positive work that empowers young people and their family, and strives for gender equality, this training is for you!
★ Receive all my lesson plans, participant handouts, marketing plan, booking form templates and more to make it EASY to get your own First Moon Circles up and running,
★ Develop an understanding of the biology of menstruation, how to track menstrual cycles (for those with and without periods) and how to practice self-care for your cycle, plus how to teach this to young people,
★ Learn how to hold sacred circles for young people which are safe and inclusive spaces, and how to handle any potential challenging situations or questions,
★ Join a community of other passionate people who are stepping up to take First Moon Circles to their communities. Receive guidance, support, encouragement, ideas and cross-promotion from each other, and have your events featured on our First Moon Circle listing,

WHAT ARE FIRST MOON CIRCLES?
I created and hold events for girls aged 9-12 which aim to both give participants a holistic (emotional, physical, biological and spiritual) appreciation of the powerful changes they will experience at the onset of puberty and menarche (their first period).
Events are intimate, and are either offered as a public event for anyone wishing to attend, or more commonly as private events, for a group of friends.
First Moon Circles aim to go way way beyond what school fails to teach kids, and it reframes periods as the time females meet their power, positive and an initiation.
Mothers and guardians are invited to join the participants for a celebratory tea to affirm the positive celebration, to open lines of communication amongst families and to lift the veil on shame and secrecy that can go hand in hand with periods.
Furthermore, mothers are supported by acquiring knowledge they often didn't know themselves, plus language and strategies to openly discuss these topics with their children.

WHAT IS FIRST MOON CIRCLE - FACILITATOR TRAINING?
This first ever facilitator training has been created in response to requests to share my process, knowledge and experience with others so they too can hold their own First Moon Circles.
I am hugely passionate about the impact First Moon Circles are having on both young people and their parents - and so gladly have created this training course. I would love to see First Moon Circles offered in many communities to empower the next generation.
It's really important that those who are committed to female empowerment, to ending period and body shame, and to holding powerful events with integrity join this training. This is why I invite you to apply to join the training.
