Following the Path of Menopause I
Join us for a unique gathering as we begin discovering the Journey into menopause. We will create ritual and community together as we uncover and reclaim this sacred time of our lives.
Time & Location

Eagle Creek, 33472 SE Wildcat Mountain Dr, Eagle Creek, OR 97022, USA
About the event
Menopause is a time in a womyan’s life that has gone silent for too long. Many of us are seeking out understanding, relevance and community around this transition into Cronehood and you are invited to bring your story to the tapestry. Our first session will explore what we can expect on this journey, what this journey entails and seek a pathway of acceptance into this rite of passage. We will connect our bodies with the Earth and the natural world around us to bring ourselves into greater connection with our own innate beauty. We will celebrate the Crone and discover who she is within us as we create a living altar with native plants.
What to expect: Be welcomed onto your own unique menopause path. We will utilize skills of ecstatic pagan witchcraft to connect to the rhythm of the Earth as our sacred teacher (Crone of all Crones!) with Juniper Birch; Christina Cameli will facilitate discussion and a bit of a classic sexual reproduction education (SRE) to help us understand what is happening with our bodies, minds and spirits on this journey (think of classic high school sex education with all that nervousness and fear but room for laughter and understanding!); and Weina Dinata of My Poppy and Finch will lead us in creating our own native plant living altar to welcome us either into this journey, or celebrate where we are on this journey.
What to Bring:
Please bring a lunch, water and good walking shoes. Pillows and blankets and camp stools/chairs to sit on can always help! Check the weather for Eagle Creek OR the night before to be properly dressed for the weather. Light snacks will be provided.
Juniper Birch is a practicing witch with certification from the Golden Web Mystery school, founder of Wild Cascara Naturalist school, and an outdoor educator for those of all ages.
Christina Cameli is a certified nurse-midwife and menopause practitioner in Portland, Oregon.
Weina Dinata is a native plant advocate and artist empowering people to connect with nature in a deeper and meaningful way through her educational hands-on workshops and creative botanical solutions.
