Dear Mothers,

Were you ever honoured as you grew from girl to young woman? What is your story of transistion? What is the story of your first bleed? Were you loved, honoured, embraced or shamed, embarrassed and confused? Or maybe your story is a positive one and you wish for the same for your daughter.

Would you like your daughter to take part in a group celebration of all it is to take those first steps on the path to womanhood?

If yes, then this celebration day is perfect for you both. This is a day for 10-12 year olds. It does not matter whether they are menstruating yet or not. Your beautiful girl will be catered for.
Please contact if you have a daughter that isnt in this age bracket.

This wonderful celebration is in 3 parts -
Session one for mothers: Thursday 16th November 7:30-10pm
Session 2 for girls: Sunday 19th November 10-1pm
Session 3 for mothers and girls: Sunday 19th November 1-4pm

The first session is for you, dear mothers. We will gather a few days before the girls. Here you will be guided in how to support your darling girl at this time and of course, you too will be nourished and supported as a woman.

Then, a few days later, we return for the girls. This day is in 2 parts:

The first runs from 10am until 1pm. The girls will be immersed in fun, creative activities to help them understand how their bodies will change in the near future, to celebrate themselves as girls and to consider their path as they step into young womanhood.

The second part is a shared lunch, with mothers and daughters. Here we will share food as sisters, telling stories and enjoying the group company before returning back to a sacred space, where each daughter will take part in the menarche ceremony, held in the space by all of the mothers and daughters present.

Your daughter will leave with a full heart, a wonderous understanding of herself AND a gift bag including a book called Making Pink Lemonade by Sarah O'Mahoney. Written from the perspective of twelve year old Kali, the reader follows her journey into womanhood from starting her first period at the age of ten to learning to love her cycle as the book progresses.

This is truly a day not to be missed. One of vital rites of passage, for all present.

The investment is just £70 per family. There are only 10 places available (update: 9 places are available)

10% of each payment will be given as a donation to the REAL PERIOD PROJECT. https://www.facebook.com/therealperiodproject/
