A SIX WEEK BOOK CLUB
Life meanders like a path through the woods.
We have seasons when we flourish and seasons when the leaves fall from us, revealing our bare bones. Given time, they grow again.

The power of rest and retreat in difficult times
By Katherine May
You are warmly invited to join this 6 week study book club to dive deep into the teachings of Katherine May's Wintering
This book is a poignant and comforting meditation on the fallow periods of life, times when we must retreat to care for and repair ourselves. As inevitable as winter are winter-like periods of life: times that feel bleak and cold and hopeless. Whether it’s as a result of illness, bereavement, job loss, or heartbreak, each of us will weather our own personal winters. The invitation of this book club is to offer a peaceful rebuff to life in the fast forward so that we can come to know and accept that like the seasons our winters and summers are the ebb and flow of life.
5% of the profits from this book club will go to the Tree Sisters and plant
2-3 trees per booking.
SISTERHOOD & SUPPORT
You are warmly invited to sit around the online campfire and sit in circle with a sisterhood of women where you will find support and encouragement to live your most authentic life
.Wintering is a compelling account of how author Katherine May learned to embrace a bleak, harsh season in her own life by turning to the lessons of winter. From saunas to cold-winter swimming, wolves to winter solstice, May looks to how animals, plants, and cultures throughout history have survived, and even flourished, in the darkest time of the year.
During our six weeks together you will integrate the author's wisdom with your own soul guidance and experience the power of grounding in your own cultural myths and stories. Each week you will discover your own authentic values and ways to retreat and flourish in the darkest time of the year.
RITUAL, REST & COMMUNITY
Connect your own struggles with the rhythms of the natural world, and tap into profound and time tested strategies for surviving until spring.
Linger in your dreams and explore the meditative state between sleeping and wakefulness that is possible during long periods of rest.
Learn To Rest
Find community in nature, make rituals of long winter walks and cultivate a connection with the world.
Discover The Gifts
Discover how the extremes of winter weather are a gift that allows you to reconnect with slowness, playfulness, mindfulness, and resilience.
Address imbalances in your relationship with winter and how they manifest in your life, and community. Tap into your intuition and manifest this wisdom in your life.
Restore The Balance
Cultivate the quieter pleasures of winter by embracing your fallow periods. Open up to their restorative gifts so you can prepare for the rebirth of Spring.

“Plants and animals don’t fight the winter; they don’t pretend it’s not happening and attempt to carry on living the same lives that they lived in the summer. They prepare. They adapt. They perform extraordinary acts of metamorphosis to get them through. Winter is a time of withdrawing from the world, maximising scant resources, carrying out acts of brutal efficiency and vanishing from sight; but that’s where the transformation occurs. Winter is not the death of the life cycle, but its crucible.”
- Katherine May
My work is about reconnecting women to their vulnerability and strengths, truth and power, past and present, desire and integrity, nature and body.
I show women how to live in harmony with their natural rhythms, supporting women to find their voice, and connect them to their ideas and creativity. I see myself as a lighthouse, shining a light so women can navigate their way back home to themselves.
