Come and join the circle of women gathering for the Initiation 2021 training, to dive deep into work that will create profound shifts in the way you relate to yourself as woman, and to other women. We are living in unprecedented time in our history.
Never has it been more important or needed for women to gather and reclaim the ways of our natural Souls. To co-create and collaborate our energies for both our own healing and in service to a new earth.
Please join us.
Jewels brings over 25 years experience of working with women, and this training has run for many, many years. It is still unique in the UK.
Hear from women who have taken the Initiation journey, as they share their experiences.
A life-changing course
Initiation is a year-long life changing course offered as an antidote to the challenges of both our inner and outer experience of life right now. It offers a pathway for women to reclaim their power, freedom, joy and innate wisdom
My advice to any woman looking to do this course is; do it. The money will appear, as will the time and commitment. When I contacted jewels 2 years ago to enquire, I didn’t have the money nor the time but I trusted it would happen. It had to. My life was a mess, I was so lost. The following year I was on the course and it has completely transformed my life to a place I could have only dreamed of. This work is not just for us women as individuals but for the collective. I’m so grateful that I trusted the calling and leaned into my wombs knowing and therefore was able to do it. If you feel called, there’s a reason. Trust your womb.
Kimberley Rose, Initiation participant
Bringing Ourselves Back Home
So many women instinctively feel that if they could open to the full flow of their shakti energy, if they could bring their full selves to life, life could be even richer.
So many women are taught that their true feeling nature is ‘messy’ or ‘chaotic’, unwelcome in a world that values order and productivity above all else.
So many women feel alone, longing for a circle of women around them. Women with whom they can feel a deep bond of friendship and trust.

About the Course
This training, spread over 13 moons, gives you a complete indigenous embodied map to living as the deepest whole woman you are.
We will aim to gather in person at EarthHeart as much as we can within the current government guidelines of covid 19. For any dates we cannot meet in person the course will continue online.
COVID PROTOCOL CARE
PLEASE NOTE: We want you to feel safe and cared for when you come to EarthHeart, both in terms of the inner work we will be doing and also with your physical wellbeing and health. We follow government guidelines on the advised protocol for COVID19 and whatever the situation is at the time of the workshop we will implement this on site.
The dates on which we gather follow the seasonal flow of the year, month and life arc of woman. The whole journey tracks the 4 main quadrants of the wheel which in turn embrace the 4 main aspects of woman. Within each of these we delve deep to fully heal, reclaim and celebrate these rich expressions of womanhood.
Each point on the year’s cycle marks a key energy change in nature around us and within us as women. They were marked and honoured by our ancestors, as part of their lives together, and in this way we support the coming into our innate connection with these cycles living within us. The residential modules of the course take place at Earthheart, Jewels’ centre nestled deep within the ancient Forest of Dean Or online if government guidelines prevent gatherings)
Jewels has spent the past 25 years reawakening these ancient sacred teachings. She is passionate about bringing them forward to facilitate women in stepping into their power, bringing forth their gifts to the world.
In the patriarchal paradigm we compete with each other, keeping ourselves separate and isolated. Because of this cultural overlay, it takes a commitment to enter a circle of sisters and return again and again so we can support each other in the collective unfolding.
For us personally, as a gift to the collective
At this time on Earth the sacred feminine needs to return fully and bring forth the gifts she has for the transformation of all women and our world.

“It will change your life, irrevocably, for the better if you do this work, and for all the women that you know.” Initiation participant, 2017
“Every woman on the planet need the level of connection that this work enables. A place to bring all of ourselves and feel safe and held while doing the work, that is so rare. It is a total privilage to have found a place like this.” Rebecca, Initiation 2018
“. . Second only to giving birth to my son, the women’s year long course was simply the most amazing experience of my life. Feels like I am now regaining my true identity as a woman. I started the year feeling scared that I wouldn’t’t fit in with the group. I’ve come away understanding what true love and support really feels like – simply amazing. Jewels, I can’t thank you enough for believing in me when I was unable to believe in myself” Janet
“. . This group changed my life, period. I didn’t know what I was missing, because feminine presence and holding was not within my experience. Now I exist within a sisterhood of deep trust, love acceptance and woman-ness that is the centre of my world and that continues since the group completed. The process was jaw-droppingly beautiful and rich beyond measure. This is gold dust, and it’s available. Amazing . . ” Clare Dakin – founder of Tree sisters
“A deep, deep bow to Jewels. Her skills at holding space for a diverse group of women who are engaged with deep soul-work, are superlative. I admire her for the manner in which she works with people in circle at the deepest level, without bullying, without rescuing, without pushing. It’s an honour to watch. A rare and precious gift” Melanie Santorini, Initiation participant
