WE CREATE SPACE FOR KINDNESS & LOVE
FOR ACCEPTANCE THAT FITS LIKE A FAVOURITE GLOVE
OF OURSELVES, EACH OTHER & OUR KINDERGARTNERS
& THEN, JUST MAYBE, OF OUR FAMILIES & PARTNERS
Sacred is when something common and everyday is made worthy of reverence and the greatest respect. It's when a woman longs in her heart to be a mother. It's when an exhausted mother births life into this world, soothes her baby at 3am and sits with loving patience beside her raging toddler until he comes to rest in her arms. It's when another grieves her loss. It's when we have the courage to say, 'I don't want to do this alone.' It's when your tribe replies, 'I see you, I love you and I have your back.’
Our circles, ceremonies, workshops and retreats are spaces in which magic unfolds. When we women gather together in heart space to honour and share our experiences, thoughts and feelings, when we are guided to tap into and trust our intuitive knowing, when we truly feel seen, heard and revered, we become incredibly powerful. Energy ripples out from within us to our families and communities, and as though a spell has been cast, we witness the change we wish to see in the world before our eyes.
Women hold babes, we hold women and the Great Mama holds us all
"This takes mum and baby group to a whole new level..."
Whether you join a new moon circle, a postnatal circle, a mama circle or another one, all are containers for integrating our experiences of womanhood, for reimagining what it means to be women and mothers, for healing, for joy and for transformation. We may meet online or in-person, and bring our little ones or enjoy time alone. Our intention is that we leave feeling revitalised, part of a wise and powerful sisterhood, and more in tune with ourselves, with our children and with Life.
Some of the elements we weave into our circles include...
MEDITATION & VISUALISATION
SEASON & MOON RITUALS
CONNECTION WITH NATURE
TOUCH & HOLDING
"Ceremonies offer fixed points in our hectic lives, making life feel richer and often transforming it."
Life is in constant motion; everything comes and goes, and without ceremony and ritual it slips through our fingers. From mother blessings and thanksgivings for the safe arrival of our babies, to grieving and honouring our lost ones, our ceremonies are spaces in which to pause, reflect and set clear intention. They take us beyond the everyday, helping us to focus on what really matters by reaching places where words cannot go. The symbolic rituals within a ceremony help us to access and process our thoughts, feelings and intuitions, honouring that which has passed, that which is yet to come and our rite of passage between the two.
Creating environments that our children can thrive in
These include our free online Magnificent Mama workshops designed to support women on their way to and from birth, and workshops co-hosted with amazing experts. We also offer experiences that enable mamas, papas and little ones to have fun and bond in beautifully meaningful ways.

"Babes in Sacred Arms was born from our need for it!"
The seed for Babes in Sacred Arms was quite literally planted during Gem's mother blessing ceremony in September 2019. As women of all ages gathered to really be with another and honour Gem, we all felt a deep sense of joy, relief and belonging - this was soul medicine at work, and we needed more of it...
