Meet the Mirror

Meet the Mirror became a closed group following July’s session*

*Should you wish to join, please email to discuss the possibility.

This group is for women at a pivotal transition time in their lives. It will become a space for deep discovery, mutual sharing, mentoring and support. Do you identify yourself as the archetypal wise woman, someone moving into the Autumn (or later) wisdom cycle? Creatrix, Priestess or Dark Mother? Perhaps you are using this phase of life to retrain or share skills / tools that you’ve kept hidden for many years?

Activities will be aimed at helping you to delve deep into questions and prompts to bring clarity where there’s confusion, and ask those burning questions that arise at this challenging yet exciting phase in our lives that is full of potential.

Absolutely no writing experience is required – we utilise stream of consciousness in order to bypass our inner critic – that voice that keeps us small and our dreams and gifts hidden.

You may have heard of Julia Cameron’s ‘Morning Pages’ ~ this is journal writing with edge

A voyage of discovery in a safe container – where you are able to explore with others sharing this life stage. Sessions will combine various tools, for example:

  • Meditation to ground our energy
  • Writing prompts to engage hearts & minds
  • Embodied practice to get us into our flow
  • Use of oracle / tarot / photos + more to inspire

As a group, we shall create from what we need in the given moment and be encouraged to bring our gifts to share and also help design future activities.

Women who’ve already signed up come from backgrounds in shamanism, mediumship, Jungian counselling and astrology. We would love to welcome you too.

Testimonies: What People Say

I have enjoyed the opportunity to explore a ‘new to me’ way of expressing myself, maybe also thinking about my life and how it is changing.

I’ve loved the freedom to vomit out all this stuff, such an affirmation of creativity & life. Thank you Claire.

The creative energy. The insights I’ve had along with nurturing & nourishing myself emotionally & mentally. Thank you for this beautiful, provoking space.

Feedback from recent LGBTQ Survivors writing workshop

The use of poetry as a stepping off point was really useful and helped me get out of my comfort zone

Safe and welcoming space. Claire [was] great

More of this please, and other events where we can do stuff and chat 🙂

Podcast: Wisdom Keeper with Dr Miles Neale

Here this wonderful video (also available as a podcast) centres on Tashi Mannox’s life and his art of calligraphy.

Perfect viewing on a lazy summer’s day
