Emma Meadows Coordinating the Women's Circle
I am a mother and practitioner, healer and teacher of Womb Wysdom, The Shaman Womb and Shamanism. I have worked with wombic energy for over 20 years in many beautiful ways including, Shamanic healing, Womens shamanism, tantra, Kundalini energy, Fertility, Birth and Death, Art, Writing, Dreaming, Voice and visualisations. More recently as I delve deeper into Womens' Traditional European Shamanism and our Ancient Wombic practices I am weaving a way that embodies the elements of my 20 years experiences, with the teachings and wombic 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 their womb wisdom and I have worked with many women, supporting them in various ways to harness their own sacred womb power, developing and strengthening this for personal empowerment, healing, self knowledge and self love.
"I am so excited to be part of Woman Fest, it has really got my juices flowing! I am inspired, thrilled and heart full when I think about all the potent gifts, power and creativity we will be sharing with each other in deep sisterhood, rising in love, strength and compassion together in this groundbreaking festival."
