Even as we navigate the rocky terrain of change with the sudden departure of Sandy, so dependable supportive and knowledgeable, a new vision is being created with the advent of a great new team at Spirit of Woman Essences. Responding to their own desire to work with the new incoming energies of the Divine Feminine, each of the women brings a mixture of fresh, committed and heart-felt energy to augment and enhance the old.
Karren Jensen brings a depth of experience in business and is fresh out of University where she added to her skills base with a Bachelor in Social Science, majoring in policy. I first met Karren when both our children attended the Samford Valley Steiner School and then again at the Australian College of Natural Medicine when she was studying. She then went on to study at University of Queensland. And all of this at the same time as raising four children! There is no doubt that Karren is dedicated to evolving her soul with all that self-improvement behind her! I am so happy to welcome Karren.
I was delighted to work with Karren on the recent White Light Expo held on the Gold Coast last weekend. It was a lot of fun and we met many people all of whom were eager to start using Spirit of Woman essences for the first time. A couple even came back after having bought an essence on the first day to tell us that they had already experienced wonderful results, even after using them for only such a short time.
One of the great things about exhibiting at Expos is the network that one connects with. We had so much fun with the other exhibitors, as well as talking with the attendees that came through.
We now look forward to the MindBodySpirit Festival being held in Brisbane 25 – 27 June, 2010. Hope to see you there. I will be giving a presentation – but more about that later on.
The next new face is that of Natarsha Billings who has been with us in some way since the beginning of the year as a sales rep. She is still doing that but now has added making up the essences to her role. I love the way that she makes it a sacred pastime by creating an aura of stillness and focus around her during the process. It is very meditative and so relaxing. Many may remember Natarsha from when she worked at Sowelu in Paddington as a receptionist.
Another fresh and welcome face is Jody Oster. She has joined the team because she is so passionate about birthing and is presently completing her midwifery in mainstream. She is excited that she will be able to stand with a foot in both camps to help those women who are vulnerable within the system to gain the inner strength and personal courage to birth as naturally as possible. The positive outcomes that arise from a satisfying and healthy birth are echoed throughout the lives of both baby and mother, so Jody’s work at the coal-face is vitally necessary.
Amy Kuczynski has a background in research and is keen and enthusiastic to add her valued energy into this area at Spirit of Woman. New information is coming through all the time that upholds and validates the notion of least interference in the natural bodily processes that are part of being a woman, including menstruation, conception (including contraception), pregnancy, child-birth and nurturing a child. With the alarming rates in the usage of the pill and other chemical methods of contraception, many women’s bodies are being denatured giving rise to increasing rates of assisted reproduction (IVF) and Caesarean births. Followup studies are showing beyond doubt that children being born under these non-natural means are proving to be less emotionally and physically resilient. Research is revealing the truth of these understandings. Amy is going to be delving deep into these questions to help women understand the sanctity of naturalness in regard to their body and its processes and how it contributes to the evolution of humanity rather than its degradation.
Lisa Tristram has also offered her services to assist women to express their best on all levels of being. An excellent teacher, and with a journey of self-honouring and dedication to natural healthand beauty we are very happy to welcome her.
And then of course there are those lovely women who have been with us for some time, training as teachers:the lovely Mary Skorupski, just finishing her studies and ready to leap into final stages of development of our correspondence course, the wise woman Lorraine Collins whose deep connection to the plant world is reflected in the beautiful place where she lives and the exuberant Jocelyn Hansen, now in Victoria and flush with the joy of the arrival of her new son, Ned Hartley Hampshire.
Ned’s passage into life, from prior to his conception, through his gestation time, his birthing and the early days of his blessed life, was enhanced with Spirit of Woman essences. Joc prepared diligently for his optimal start to life by detoxing, emotionally and physically before his conception. While pregnant Joc used the Pregnancy Support blend and sailed through. By the time Ned was ready to be born he was ready to hit the ground running – he was feet first as as a breech presentation!
Joc had to have a Caesarean in spite of all her best wishes and preparation for a natural birth. She followed up after the surgery with Caesarean Recovery taking it herself and gently stroking it onto Ned’s skin. He is now feeding beautifully and deeply bonded to both his Mum and Dad, Toff.
Welcome to the world Ned!! And congratulations to Joc and Toff.
Joc plans to continue her work with Spirit of Woman essences as soon as Ned is ready to share her!!
Last but not least, I want to introduce you to Charyn Mc Lean, astrologer extraodinaire. Charyn did the first workshop series in 2009 and felt very connected to the Spirit of Woman essences as tools to work with her clients. Charyn does amazing healing work in counseling her clients through life changes, by understanding the unique configuration of celestial energies influencing them throughout this lifetime. Charyn specialises in the Asteroid Goddesses and found an astonishing resonance with the Spirit of Woman essences.
The exciting news is firstly, that Charyn has contributed two exciting and informative chapters to the reprint of the Spirit of Woman book and secondly, that she and I will be doing a workshop in the last quarter of 2010 (date to be announced) which will be both revealing and empowering fro women…..stay tuned.
That’s enough for now……… The vision is big and the groundwork is being laid as we speak.
For my part, I want to thank Sandy. Her contribution to the Spirit of Woman essences cannot be measured – it was enormous……….and still is.
And I also want to welcome on board the whole new team, at the same time as expressing appreciation to those who have moved with me, through the changes.
It seems that we at Spirit of Woman are working in the way that women best do – through networking, co-operating, supporting and maintaining connection. How exciting that we are on the brink of the Shift – with the emergence of the Divine Feminine the emphasis will be on the conservation and maintenance of the planet and world peace. And, as women, our lives will deepen with a return to connection, and our menfolk will benefit through being able to be true to their gender.
