Carmela Rodda and Lahni Gordon
Together, Lahni and Carmela hold a space with intention for each person to celebrate community, sit in a ritualistic environment, share in a meaningful way and dance the embodiment of authentic expression. Their intention is to create a space to honour personal process of growth and recognise the powerful transformation that can take place when we dance for ourselves, through our intentions and unique expression. A safe container is created for each person to journey and feel supported to celebrate expression, movement, self-exploration, with opportunity to let go of past emotional processes and grow. Lahni has been working as a woman’s empowerment facilitator and woman’s and men’s ceremonial space holder for 5 years. Held in a workshop environment, she inspires others to access their voice, own their vulnerability and authentically connect. Drawing her inspiration from 3 years of shamanic plant medicine studies in both Australia and the Peruvian Amazon, she lives in deep reverence to plants, the land and community. Carmela has been facilitating transformative embodiment practices for the past 5 years through Yogic and meditative offerings, as well as women’s circles. With a deep reverence for ceremony and ritual, she inspires those who journey alongside her to tap into the deeper wisdom of one’s own body. Carmela humbly carries fourth the teachings that have served her along her own journey of transformation, and offers them up in her workshop space.
Woman’s and Men’s Circle and Sound and Movement Medicine Journey - An ancient ritual of tribal connection.
Medicine woman’s and men’s circle is for all women who wish to show up, and participate at whichever capacity they are comfortable to. Their presence alone is enough. Our roles and intentions are to create a space, which allows each person to feel safe enough to be vulnerable. This is a space to connect in a sacred way with the earth, yourself and others. An initiation of honour and deep reverence to human connection can birth within this space, giving others the tools to create their own rituals in everyday life, speak their truth and embody authentic, integral expression. The ritual incorporates guided meditation, wisdom circle sharing and a very unique, shamanic sound and movement journey to activate our innate curiosity through connecting to traditional music and exploring authentic movement in a sacredly contained environment.
