‘I am a Circle…Part 1 The Yggdrasil’

 

At the base of the Yggdrasil (the World Tree), The Weavers of Destiny the Maiden, the Mother and the Crone have lost their way….. Big Time. In the shadows the Beast lays in wait and the Yggdrasil is dying.

And so, the quest begins for a Woman to heal her ancestral wounds in The Labyrinth of Life, reawaken her matriarchal lineage, reclaim her true self and restore Divine Feminine Energy.

 

This beautiful performance event invites the audience to hold the rim of the Sacred Women’s Circle, deeply experience its mythology and honour the 9 initiations of a Woman’s awakening through, story, song, music, movement, and theatre.

 

Written and performed by BJ Long

Director Celia White

Speech: Women Finding their Own Voice

            

BJ Long captivates the audience through her unique, professional experience as a Speaker Mentor (VoiceBloom), as a playwright and performer of her sacred physical-esque theatre modality (‘I am a Circle’ Trilogy) and the imaginative recounting of her own inspiring personal story.

BJ dares women to consider: What would it look and feel like to Find your Voice as a Woman and to Honour your Calling?

BJ encourages women to recognise whether:

  • If you know your calling but cant express or voice it…. whether you encounter being invisible

or

  • If you have no clear calling but have a voice whether you may be impressive but leave no lasting expression

BJ gives us experience on how to free divine feminine expression through her technique called VIBE. She asks meaningful questions that give awareness to habitual or generational patterns that inhibit women from being the best they can possibly be.

She reveals that when you can once again trust the container of your sacredness that you become an Awakened Woman and have access to your divine feminine presence. It is then a woman knows how to honour and express her feminine voice and truly align with the thread of her calling.

Women Finding their Own Voice Workshops

  The  Workshop: Women Finding Their Own Voice

Historically, women and their voice have not been encouraged or understood. This is your invitation to take a journey, to discover and embrace your unique Feminine Voice; it is time to be understood.

  1. Discover how to unlock breath and journey with breath to the deeper parts of self to experience freer and more powerful communication.
  2. Explore how to be vocally playful, get straight to the point and awaken the vibrancy of your voice.
  3. Develop your own story and stand in your Feminine power with strength and energy when you deliver your message.

 

Through a technique called VIBE you will gain some experience on how your Voice, Imagination, Body, Emotions/Energy and Spirit can align

holistically to access the Feminine Voice. Begin to free your Feminine Voice through group inspired theatre games along with vocal and mindfulness techniques. You will also be encouraged to write your own story and have the opportunity to play and deliver it in a respectful, supported sacred space.

 

Women have so much to contribute to society we are Warrior Women endowed with an innate sensitivity and the deepest of knowledge; we are the birth makers of the world on so many different levels. It’s time to be heard; to discover and embrace your Feminine Voice; to let go of the shame and to be congruent with who you are.
