Embodiment Tent Mumma/Communication/Admin/Founder
I love Womanfest with my whole heart. She's taken us on a wild ride these past few years............ Word to the wise: if you aren't ready for the heat, don't. build an alchemical fire of transformation for Womankind!
All I can say is womanfest will give to you triple fold with what you put in: she is a swirling mystery of possibility that needs never be told what and who she is - We all make womanfest, and what it becomes with all of us is a whisper of a time long ago when the sisterhood was a deep and resonant song in our being - we can have that again. We are building that again. We are Radicalising again.
Gratitude. To the four directions, and the Four Elements. To the Earth and Sky. To the Women! and Men! The Trees, and animals, up in the sky to the worms in the ground, to Mushroom Nation, and the Unseen, and the Ancestors!
For the next Seven Generations.
So may it be
Expression Tent Mumma/Tech/Sound
Hi, I’m Giuliana (she/her). Together with a lovely team of skilled womxn I run the technical side of Womanfest. I feel my role is to help all artists, musicians, and workshop leaders to deliver the best experience possible, easily and smoothly.
This year for the first time I will also be holding the magic of the Expression Stage, hoping to organise a great entertainment program for our festival evenings… because after the hard work it’s always good to have a dance!
I remember when I was booked last minute to work the first edition of Womanfest in 2018, I have to admit I was skeptical about women only spaces… mainly because I’ve had never experienced any before and wasn’t sure what to expect! I found the experience and the energy created so deeply inspiring, that in a few years time I was happily and proudly joining the new cooperative that now holds the gathering. Let's get together, we deserve it! :)
Women's Circle Mumma
I am a mother and a shamanic healer and teacher specialising in Womens’ Womb Based Shamanism, Womens’ Sacred Sexual Energy Practises and Classical Core Shamanism. My work with women includes many aspects such as Shamanic healing, Womens' shamanism, tantra, Kundalini energy, Fertility, Birth and Death, Art, Writing, Dreaming, Voice and visualisations. In my life and work, I am weaving a way that embodies the elements of my 23 years experiences and trainings, with the teachings and practices of our Female Ancestors to bring these to women in ways that are accessible for the times we live in. I am passionate about enabling women to reconnect with themselves in their deep love, wisdom and sexual energy so to embody and reclaim their true bountiful self, for personal empowerment, healing, self knowledge and self love. With our truths reclaimed, restored and resonating we can bring our full potent alchemical wisdom to every aspect of our lives and open up the path to our sacred dreams in manifestation.
Hi, I am Rachel and I bring you Blissfull Belltents. For Womanfests first year along with the two Melodys, we provided our lovely blissful spaces for you all. In the second year we needed Polly, Natalie, Mel and myself as there were so many more of you!
This year I have joined the newly formed Not for profit, Co-operative that is here to run Womanfest. We love Womanfest so much and in order to help her grow and develop we want to work cooperatively to hold the space safely and securely for us all.
For that reason I am now holding the space of large structures. Some of you may have seen or heard about my dash to save a structure (not put up by my team, I hasten to add) from collapse in the wild winds we had. As I feel the call to provide safe, warm, cosy, secure structures I feel this is the right place for me.
I look forward to seeing you all this year at womanfest.

Land care Crew/Spa
Being part of Womanfest echoes the journey of life for me - feelings around 'not good enough', challenges of communication, participation, connection/disconnection, my 'gifts', and how to focus my energy and life? The background of these challenges is addiction, eating disorder, anxiety, depression and burnout.
I have lots of questions around gender, race, and inclusion, both in general, and in relation to WF. I deeply value women focused spaces, love to powerlift and sing, and strive to honour our ancestors, future generations, siblings of all species, and the Great Mystery.
I have been deeply troubled about our collective trajectory and inequality on earth since I was a child. Most recently I have been attempting to contribute towards change with Extinction Rebellion and the Stop HS2 movements.
I invite conversation and connection around any of the topics I have mentioned and/or please come and say hi! I'll be helping to take care of the recycling/landfill, toilets and Spa.
