The psyches and souls of women also have their own cycles and seasons of doing and solitude, running and staying, being involved and being removed, questing and resting, creating and incubating, being of the world and returning to the soul-place.

☾✩☽ moon medicine ☾✩☽

 

Moon Medicine is a monthly gathering for women to coincide with the Full Moon cycle of 2019. This is an invitation for women who are ready to harness their inner power and reclaim their wild feminine nature. Hosted by Kathy Scott this series of monthly mystery gatherings will illuminate the magical gifts of the Moon at special locations around the city of Dublin as 2019 unfolds. Every Moon Medicine gathering weaves together feminine practices from the wisdom traditions with live music and stellar teachings from a council of guest female luminaries.

In a world where women can feel increasingly disconnected from their inner selves and the world around them, Moon Medicine offers an alchemical path to reconnection. In light of Repeal and the rising momentum of women worldwide speaking out, stepping up and reclaiming their power, this is a special opportunity to rediscover and celebrate your own creative feminine life force.

Women have been gathering in circle and creating sacred space together since the dawn of time – this is our ‘soul-place’.  The Moon is a feminine symbol, universally representing the rhythm of time as it embodies the cycle. Just as the moon influences the ebbs and flows of the ocean tides, studies show that we too are influenced by the magnetic pull of the lunar forces. According to the Farmers Almanac the Moon's twenty-eight day cycle also influences the weather, crop growth, animal and human fertility. In her book Moon Dance: The Feminine Dimensions of Time, Sioux Rose says the lunar cycle directly impacts our emotions and “energises the collective unconscious”. Moon Medicine is an opportunity to tune into the gifts of the Lunar Cycle and meet a host of inspiring trailblazing women along the way.

A host of trailblazing women

Every Moon Medicine gathering invites a guest female luminary / creatrix to share Herstory with us. You will meet a host of trailblazing women from artists to activists, astrologers, cultural creatives, dj’s, disruptors, gong bathers, herbalists, healers, music makers, mythologists, sea swimmers and other inspiring keepers of the flame. Scroll down to see our council of guest female luminaries.

How does it work?

☾✩☽ 12 Gatherings: Moon Medicine is a series of monthly gatherings hosted by Kathy Scott. The gatherings are designed to track and synchronise with the lunar cycle and will take place on every Full Moon date in 2019. {See dates below}.

☾✩☽ 12 Locations: Moon Medicine is a moveable feast and will take place at different sites around Dublin City. Locations include historical buildings, museums, industrial studios, galleries, sacred spaces, seaside locations (for night swimming) and other curious places of interest.

☾✩☽ 12 Trailblazing Women: Every gathering also invites a guest female luminary to share Her story. Expect to meet a host of trailblazing women from artists to activists, astrologers, cultural creatives, dj’s, disruptors, gong bathers, herbalists, healers, music makers, mythologists, sea swimmers and other inspiring keepers of the flame

What does it involve?

We draw from a deep well to find resources that will support you throughout the year ahead. We will explore the gifts of the lunar cycle as a map of empowerment for women’s wellbeing today. Each Moon Medicine gathering will include experiential practices from the ancient wisdom traditions including yoga, movement, kundalini kriya, meditation, breath work and sound current. There will also be dancing, sea swimming and live music. Expect to learn about some of the sacred rituals and secret practices that have supported women’s health and wellness throughout the ages. We also will hear the stories of women who have gone before us blazing trails across the cultural, political and social realms in Ireland and beyond.

All are welcome and no experience is necessary.

Intention

Our intention is for Moon Medicine to move processionally through the city, gathering momentum, power and light as the lunar cycles unfold. We have invited some Guest Luminaries to guides us through astrological insights, the path of Brigid, the Druidic and Celtic Traditions of our ancestors and the rhythms of Mother Earth. We will explore Yeats, Maude Gonne, Lady Gregory, AE Russell and the magic of the Celtic revival. We will map the lunar cycles to our own feminine cycles and Moon Time. We will learn about manifestation and intention setting. We will hear stories from woke women in the cultural, politics and social realms. We will honour those who have gone before us and pave the way for those yet to come. We will experience yoga, ritual. and other wisdom practices. We will swim in the sea and dance under the moonlight. Expect live music and performance at every gathering. Join us and tell your sisters…..
