9 – Firekeeper – Mel – Earth Connection

Dive into the world of connection with this light and whimsical tale of Mel’s journey in the Four Seasons in Victoria, Australia. Mel talks deeply about the importance of connection for ALL ages, we delve into the drum making process and how that showed up for her own birth story, and we then talk about identifying as Queer and how once this was revered in culture and how this is growing in its fullness for Mel and the amazing work she does.

Musings from Mel

“There was belonging.”

“I learned through everyone’s stories and experiences.”

“All of these people and their stories, that are told straight from their heart.”

“I have deep connections with trees.”

“The school created an incredible, deep, powerful space.”

“I believe we need to reconnect with ancient land-based ways of being for future generations.”

“Tap into your fear as your intuition.”

“That experience of connection and being in circle. ”

8 – Reclamation – Tamar – Unlocking Greatness

Tamar comes to us from her experience journeying with the school in the UK. Currently, she weaves her magic in France and this episode really connects with her birth story and how this process come up for her in her four seasons journey. Tamar really connected with the drum making process and felt so deeply into the messages and healing from this. Tamar is teaching feminine embodiment and ways in that we can find our own inner greatness. We talk about her work in coming back into our body, owning our body and how intimacy flows from there. Here is an excerpt that I love form Tamar’s website…

Accepting all of ourselves without shame is honouring of our truth. It is fully embodying yourself as a sovereign, autonomous woman. It is an integration and it is a process. Feminine embodiment is a perfect tool for any woman ready to awaken to all that she is and when she awakens to this truth then everything else in life falls into place. More aligned work, doing better in business, extraordinary love, sex and relationships… it all starts with owning and loving all that we are, first. It begins here and all else will follow lie bees to honey.


Musings from Tamar

And I said ‘yes, that’s exactly what I want’.

“I needed to come back into trusting my own body”

“I really feel there is such a great need for women to come back into the feminine wisdom.”

“I felt the deep connections of sisterhood.”

“I really felt held.”

“Our vision quest near Wales was quite magical.”

“Every little thing on this journey is huge and sacred when we hold this, every part becomes a lesson.”

“We work so much and we are so focused, if we can do just 1 thing every hour that we can find pleasure in, we can change our whole day.”

“Learning to come back and own my body.”

“When we experience pleasure and allow our selves to be present our life changes.”

“I needed to have that experience in my body.”

“Reclamation of self.”

We found a modern day priestess for this absolutely insightful podcast. Julie Parker journeyed with the school in 2017, she come into this with absolutely a strong pull to follow this instinct after having nightmarish dreams that were telling her that she needs to wake up and go back to the work that will wholly serve her as being what she is now, a modern day priestess, business woman, author and life coach. We explore how her success in life and business has come from a place of truly showing up to undoubtedly develop a deep relationship with self and others around her. This is great to listen to for all you biz women out there!

“The sense of achievement at the end of the 4SJ, I was so proud of myself!”

“Even though at times it was physically painful and difficult, it was SO worth it.”

“The whole experience with the school was very much one that brought ancestral and inner child learning to the surface.”

“Looking back and being reverent about who and where I have come from.”

“Uncovering us as women and cyclic creatures.”
