Women’s Initiation — Apprenticeship

May 6 - May 11

13 Moons Womb journey into nature based deep feminine empowerment

Are you living the fullness of you as a woman ?
If not do you want to get closer to that but need guidance ?
Would you love to feel empowered and free within yourself ?
Would you value feeling safe and supported by women ?
You deserve this, you are wanted and it is time.

Welcome, welcome welcome, to all Women who are ready.....

EarthHeart Women’s Gathering : Lammas

Deep in the forest, held in the sanctuary of EarthHeart, Jewels holds space for women to re-root themselves in the distinctive power of the feminine.

Are you living the life you want to live as woman?
  • Are you tired of living a life that doesn’t align with your longings and dreams ?

  • Would you value support and guidance to get closer to doing this in a sustainable and real way ?

  • Do you feel the overwhelm of trying to do too much, alone and never feeling like it’s enough?

  • Do know the value of being embedded within a circle of women who have their hand on your back and believe in you ?

  • Do you long to spend more time in nature and have space to be the way you want to be and feel that you are accepted as you are ?

A Threshold : old ways of living on Earth are coming to an end

….the time is now for women to come forwards without apology. It’s time to stand powerfully together, to raise each other up, to move beyond fear into the deep inherent beauty, power and ancient wisdom that we are.

It’s time to ground into nature, to come home to our true nature. It’s time for breaking through the old systems. It’s time to discover who and what we really are, and then to bring it, full force, to this wild and beauty-filled planet. The deep feminine current is needed; along with womb based wisdom as a key missing piece in how we go forwards into the future. It has been buried denied and shamed for centuries and it needs to stop here.

A new world is emerging. There has never been a more potent call to the deep feminine to rise up, come together and take leadership on this new Earth. For millennia we have been taught that we have to do it all alone, be super heroes and deny the very essence of what it means to live from this deep feminine current. The Threshold we are at is calling us to a deep, worldwide, systemic change of how we have been living as humans on Earth and how white women and women of colour have been divided.

The root of the collapse of our world is the absence and suppression of the feminine principles –  beauty, the Sacred, intuition, protection and care for life, equality, collaboration, creativity, emotional intelligence, womb based /cyclical connection, embodiment, Sacred sexuality, and Heart-based living. Women bring the heart, beyond debate of right and wrong, of hierarchy and division and this. It can only be done when we come together.

The Awakened Wild feminine is one who knows she is a force of nature. This means she has tuned into nature and the mystery as her primary guide in liberating her instinctual and natural self. She is rooted in her earthy sensuality and has learned to embody the fierceness, beauty, and power of nature in her everyday life and in how she brings herself to the great turning. She embodies the seasons, has awakened the moon within her, and regularly takes the journey through the womb-scapes of her soul where she and nature have become indivisible.

Do you want this ?

This space is for women who wish to sit together in ceremony and connect within to their deep feminine current, who want to travel inside mysteries rooted in the magic of wise blood and womb magic. From the maiden to the crone, the whole arc is needed in order to truly bring through woman in her entirely. Ancestor bones and sacred land are needed for holding and remembering ourselves.

if you who wish to take an apprenticeship into claiming back your inherent power, connect to the web of life and their deep feminine essence and who feel a call to both be in service to their own life and in support of others. 

It’s a journey in the reclamation and embodiment of the feminine principle, rooted in beauty, power, wildness and fiercely loving hearts, embedded in nature and supported by radical self care. A map that is embedded into Celtic indigenous earth-based spirituality of the ancestors within these lands.

“Thank you doesn’t feel big enough for this life changing transformative experience. I can’t imagine life without having taken this deep soul nourishing love filled journey & without my wonderful sisters. The effects of this will ripple out into my life and back in time to the ancestors & future generations. It has changed me forever.”

 – Thea

The Wombdala wheel of the year....

Wombdala is a map we will use to navigate ourselves back home. It’s embedded into the Celtic indigenous earth-based spirituality of the ancestors within these lands. We will follow the ancient earth-based womb cosmology of the wheel of life with it’s 8 gateways that hold the keys to reclaiming all aspects of who we are as women.

WOMB & LUNA WISDOM (winter solstice) menstruation
At the time of our bleed (or dark moon) the veil between worlds is thinnest and we have access to deep original wisdom that is encoded in our wombs and linked directly to the entire cosmos. Our inherent knowing of truth and the sacred shows itself if we can stop and listen. It is a time of deep introspection and inner reflecting. To do this we must be willing to let go, to rest and allow visions of a new cycle to show themselves to us.

HEALING OUR WOUNDS WITH DEEP TIME ANCESTORS   (Imbolc) threshold
In order to bring together all the exiled parts of us we need to contextualise our lives within deep time. The wounded daughter within us as well as the woman who has been hurt and dishonoured.  These wounds sit in the collective field. Deep personal and collective healing can happen in the context of ritual and ceremony as this takes us beyond just the aspect of personality and back to the soul imprint of who we are as women.

CIRCLE AND BELONGING (spring equinox) pre-ovulation
The feminine works better together than alone, we need each other at the deepest level. Community, collaboration, mutual support, the circle, trust, holding, seeing and being seen.

RITUAL & CREATIVITY (beltane) threshold  
Ritual is an essential aspect to life, it connects us to beauty and allows us to work with nature in a way where we can honour what we receive, heal the deep time wounds and receive nature’s gifts with grace.

NATURE & GIFTS (summer solstice) ovulation
We are nature, our bodies are made of of earth, air, fire and water. We are cyclical just like the seasons and cycles of life. Embedding ourselves in nature is a way our cells and soul can align again so we can fully bring our unique creative gift to the world. 

EMBODIMENT & SEXUALITY (lammas) threshold
Feminine spiritual practice is always embodied: practices that involve the breath, moving, touch, sexual and sensual energy, dance, emotional flow are all needed if we are to be whole women.

POLARITY & BALANCE (autumn equinox) pre-menstrual
Even if we are in a woman’s body, we have both the masculine and feminine principles within us. Both in a healthy way and in ways that are conditioned and no longer helpful that we have learned culturally. We need to unite these polarities within and allow these aspects to be in service to us in our life.

DEATH AND REBIRTH  – Samhain – threshold
The space between, the threshold of life and death, the home of the crone, we honour this place of deep spiritual awakening. This is embedded within us and within the land around us. Honouring death as a rite of passage, learning to let go and surrender is one of the deepest feminine practices for women that our culture under-values. 

 

Wombdala Talk : Spiritual teachings of womb cosmology for women

This talk given in a tent at one the UK summer festival with over 400 people. A deepdive into the Wombdala map and journey to an audience of men and women.

The Call of She...in these times...

At the core of the work is the healing of our core wound. The sacred wound we received when we arrived here in this body. This wound when unhealed leaves us disconnected from our true nature and disempowered to live the life we where meant to live.

To do this essential work as women we need to come together to harvest and nurture the full arc of woman, from the maiden to the crone, from all races and cultures, to close the divisions and heal the hurts between us so we can be allies and create a field of energy so powerful that humanity cannot help but change. For this possibility, we need diversity of culture and life-phases of woman in the circle.

This is what makes the circle rich – the teachings are embedded in the honouring of the full life arc, YOU are needed and welcome in the circle, wherever you sit in that arc. If you want to bring more in a sustainable way (personally as well as ecologically) then this is a circle for you.

During the apprenticeship, Jewels will bring over 25 years of experience, wisdom and expertise. The work she will guide you through is embedded in ancient indigenous wisdom.

Because of the deep nature of this work you will need to have a level of previous experience of inner work behind you and feel passionate about taking agency in your life.

This apprenticeship will give you the tools to be an agent of change amongst women, your communities and in the wider world.

This is what Kimberley Rose shared about her Initiation journey...

“My advice to any woman looking to do this course is; do it. The money will appear, as will the time and commitment. 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 course 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.  If you feel called, there’s a reason.”

Applying for your place on the Apprenticeship

Initiation is by application only so we can ensure we are able to take the best care of you on your journey, and create a strong and safe circle to do deep and revolutionary work together.

Because of the nature and depth of this apprenticeship, Jewels accepts only a limited number of women each year to ensure that you get the full basket of her support and teachings. 

Module One is a personal in-depth exploration with Jewels, either via zoom or in person. If after this first module it does not feel right for you, you can opt-out at this stage of continuing further. 

Once module one is completed and both you and Jewels feel it’s right to proceed, you will then be committing to the rest of the apprenticeship with the circle.

Book a free 15-minute call with Jewels here to feel into whether this is the right step for you right now

A curiosity call I held in early 2023 where I talk about the Initiation program, and answer ‘why it’s so important for women to step forward at this time?”

Modules at Earthheart

Camping
We will gather on the land with the fire as our hearth home. The apprenticeship is an outdoor land-based nature immersion. Camping on our beautiful eco campsite embedded in a clearing in the forest is included in the fees. There are hot showers, good compost toilets, a large outdoor barn with kitchen diner and a communal fire to gather round. 

Meals and hot drinks
Meals are all homemade, vegan and wheat-free feast, simple soup and salad for lunch and a hearty feast for supper. Breakfast is self-catering and we have a large undercover communal earth kitchen fully fitted with a cooker, fridge, hot water and all the utensils needed for you to prepare and eat food. There is also a dining/hang-out area to gather, make hot drinks and sit by the fire etc.

Extra time on the land at EarthHeart throughout the year

What makes this year-long offering unique is that as well as our official residential dates, there is also an invitation to visit and stay at EarthHeart between the modules. This can either be on your own or in the company of other sisters from the circle. This is only made possible because we live here and EarthHeart is a dedicated space designed and created for this purpose. Unlike a rented workshop venue we are here through all seasons tending to the land, connecting with the beings who guide us and depending on the energies that support us as we do so. 

We offer this as part of the journey over the 13 moons so you can experience what it’s like to have a special wild place in nature, embedded into your psyche that you know, and that you see as a sanctuary to return to often when you feel stressed or in need of connection and how this might support your life and what you learn here to be integrated.

Please note: Well behaved and socially well trained dogs are welcome to be part of the journey, please contact us to discuss.

Transparency in how we work out what to charge

The EarthHeart project does not seek to make profit. It costs £75,000 a year to keep the project afloat (not including a wage for Jewels or facilitators) we divide these costs  between the various offerings over the year and this is how each offering is priced. We understand that some of what we offer is not accessible to some people. We have some concession tickets and this relies on people who are able, to to pay the higher price tickets. 

Concession tickets
Below is our guidelines for selecting the concession ticket. We aim to find a balance between making the work more accessible to those in genuine need and us earning a fair living. We are a small not for profit project so we are somewhat limited in how much we can support concession, we aim to do our best. Please consider seriously if you need a concession ticket and that if you take one and don’t need it the potential impact this might have of someone more in need.
