Coming Home to You

Coming home to you is a sacred heart connected workshop created for all women to bring awareness to the following: 

  • Peri-menopause and menopausal symptoms and changes
  • Pelvic Mesh
  • Breast Cancer
  • Vulva Health
  • Gynaecological Cancers
  • Menstruation Education
  • Low Libido
  • Sexual Health
  • Feelings of low self-worth
  • Feelings of loneliness in self and relationships

With the rise of the goddess movement encouraging women to step more and more into their ‘divine feminine power and sensual self’ it can be quite overwhelming and disheartening for a woman when she feels disconnected to her body, heart and soul.

There could be many reasons in life that this may happen.  For example:

When a woman is either peri menopausal or going through the life change, her body and hormones are going to be constantly fluctuating making her feel she is not herself and not in control of her emotions.

When a woman is experiencing gynaecological health issues including surgery then feeling sensual and sexy is probably going to be the last thing on her mind.

If a woman is feeling lonely within her relationship and is not feeling or being cherished, then opening up and embracing her sexuality and the joy of sacred pleasure is just not going to happen, which creates the merry-go-round cycle affecting her libido and self-worth.

All of the changes, trials and challenges we go through as women; physically, emotionally and spiritually too, can at times leave us feeling depressed, anxious, confused, overwhelmed, with no or little libido, low self-worth including body image and a feeling like we have lost ourselves.

Coming home to you recognises and understands these challenges we cycle through as women.

This is a subject which is so close to my heart in so many ways.  After going through menopause and experiencing no symptoms at all due to the years of practices I had learnt and integrated from Female Daoist Masters, I discovered it was because of this ancient wisdom and what I had been practicing for so many years that my journey through menopause was with ease and grace.  I put these practices into even deeper use after I had bladder mesh removed from my body last year.  After the removal, I saw just how much my body had changed and what it had endured post op including the inability to no longer be able to orgasm due to nerve damage.

With patience, persistence and the vast amount of knowledge that I hold in this field, I was not only able to heal this part of my body and enjoy orgasms once again but I discovered that it is still possible to be anchored into your femininity, power and sensuality no matter what you go through in life.

This Workshop is about bringing deeper awareness and vital knowledge on all of the above and to learn the ancient wisdom of the Tantra’s and Female Daoist Masters that have been used for centuries to bring women back home to their sacred Self.

Myself, Kath and our assistant Danielle are looking forward to seeing you all there.

With love,

Introducing our Special Guest Speaker:

Kath Mazzella OAM

Kath is a Gynaecological cancer survivor and a powerful, assertive, understanding individual who went from knowing nothing about “down there” to one who now shares her inspiring lived experience and aims to bring life to Gynaecological health, bringing it out from the unknown or un-mentionable, giving it recognition and positive status, it deserves. Highlighting stigmas, misconceptions and taboos, asking how we can all collaborate – men, women, educators, health professionals how to help break down these barriers and move to a healthy and accurate knowledge of this vital part of women’s bodies.

Facing her cancer diagnosis aged 42; Kath was convinced she was alone. In her search to find others facing the same experience, Kath placed an advertisement in woman’s magazine.

Overwhelmed of the responses from women suffering in silence in the workplace and home-front who felt the same sense of isolation and “off limits mindset” which can risk lives. She was compelled her to promote a positive preventative message through the International Gynaecological Awareness campaign to help break down the social stigmas, taboos and a voice for the millions of women managing polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, PMDD, fibroids, menopause, STI’s, prolapse, vulval conditions, mesh issues, hysterectomies and to connect, empower other women, reducing stigmas, taboos, embarrassment around women’s health.

Kath has not only survived, but thrived and dedicated her life to ensuring no other woman suffers in silence

Points of interest - Parliament House Western Australian: Health Minister Roger Cook/MLA Amber-Jade Sanderson spoke of Kath’s campaign on her International Gynaecological Awareness Day 2020 initiative https://youtu.be/-McfPbwkaj4 regarding her efforts to raise the profile of Gynaecological Health and related mental health issues not only as a voice for women’s experiences but for the men and families in their lives.
