Women’s Temple

Women’s Temple is a gathering of women, a women’s circle, where we can practice deep listening, presence, movement, respectful touch/massage, and honour the sacred feminine from a place of inner love and connection.

Though we will share in pairs or small groups, this isn’t a typical sharing circle. Talking and sharing is limited and intentional, so that we can practice connecting from an ’embodied’ place, rather than purely from an analytical place.


This women’s circle format is based on, and inspired by the work of the Awakening Women Institute.

“An Awakening Woman is a spiritual rebellion engaged in a glowing and embodied, nothing-held-back love affair with the great mystery.”

“We practice the feminine way, an all inclusive in-the-body spirituality, beyond dusty dogmas and far fetched goals of the future. Spiritual awakening, instead of being a peak experience you once had, or a concept you read about and compare yourself with, becomes a living, breathing path created through you, as you.

There is a seat waiting for you. You don’t have to do it alone.”

~ I commit to be honest and straight with you

~ I commit to take responsibility for myself

~ I will ask for support when I need it

~ I will ask for alone time when I need it, and it means nothing personal to you

~ I will not try to fix you

~ I will listen to you

~ I will keep what you share confidential and not gossip about it

~ I will not speak negatively about you to others

~ I will celebrate your unique beauty and gifts

~ I will not hold myself back to fit in and I will support you in doing the same


I have recently moved to Canberra and would love to connect with, and grow a Women’s Temple group here. I am holding this circle in my home in the beginning so that I can nurture it while it grows. I am open to collaborating and joining forces with other women who also have a yearning to practice these embodiment practices with other women.
