Life At Nature's Pace
Artwork by: K. Lister Wade
Navigating puberty, adolescence, and young adulthood comes with many challenges, both for young girls and their parents. At times both can feel misunderstood and disengaged, but it doesn't have to be that way. What if our young girls could step into womanhood with joy, intentionality and strength? Imagine if they understood the perceptiveness, assertiveness, strength, integrity and wisdom of their bodies. What if our young girls felt empowered to take charge of their own well-being? What if our young girls thrived on this journey, feeling loved, supported, understood and happy?
These circles will provide a safe, comfortable space for young girls to explore and embrace their journey from childhood to young womanhood. Together, with other girls and mentors, girls will learn about themselves and their changing bodies, and empower themselves as they move forward on their journey.
Craft and create. Share and support. Learn and grow. Love and empower. Our circles will be a solid foundation from which young girls can move forward with confidence into young womanhood.

My Beautiful Body - A Mother Daughter Workshop
When: Sunday January 30, 2022
Time: 1pm to 3pm
Investment: $65.00 (includes registration for mother and daughter, small snacks, tea, craft supplies and HST)
Ages: 7 to 10
Where: Our homestead
Facilitator: Kim Corrigan
From a young age, girls receive messages about what it means to be in their body. There are messages about how they should look, how they should feel, what they should wear, and more. There are messages about their body and how it changes, and messages about menstruation and what it means to have a menstrual cycle. Sadly, a lot of these messages are negative, and inaccurate, and lead to young girls and women feeling very disconnected from their body and in turn themselves.
I am on a mission to change that one girl at a time through with my latest in person offering, My Beautiful Body, created for Mothers and Daughters (ages 7 to 10).
In this workshop, we will gather and open the conversation about how brilliant our body is, what puberty is, how our body changes, chat a little bit about hormones, understand our reproductive and genital anatomy and touch on menstruation and the seasons of the menstrual cycle. It is the first conversation of many, and one that I hope will open the door for you to have deeper and easier conversations with your daughter about her body and all the changes it will experience over the coming years.
The female body is incredible! I want young girls to know this. I want to support them in loving and connecting to the beautiful gift of being in their unique and changing body.

My Beautiful Body requires a minimum of six registrations and is limited to twelve.
Circle of Sisters - Winter Session

Time: 6pm to 8pm
Investment: $150.00 (includes four circle, Circle of Mothers, craft supplies and HST)
Ages: 13 to 15
Where: Our homestead
Facilitator: Kim Corrigan
Circle of Sisters is fun, lively and social. We will gather in circle, connecting to each other and ourselves. We will enjoy games, crafts, stories, meditation, sharing circles, and creative expression. We continue the journey we began in Circle of Friends, learning how to be a good friend, exploring authentic expression and emotional self care, discovering the joy of the changing body and menstruation, and begin diving a little deeper into sexuality and healthy relationships, and what that means to each of them. Girls will feel empowered on their journey into adulthood, and have tools to help support them.
These circles will cultivate self-esteem, self-confidence, and what girls at this age are particularly looking for: a feeling of being heard, understood, loved and held, by a circle of friends and their own families.
