The 13 Moons circle was created as a way to bring together a community of women who are interested in the conversation around personal ritual, seasonal & lunar wisdom practices, and kitchen medicine.
This program is open to any and all women/womxn/womyn who want to deepen their connection to the natural world through a variety of practices within a supportive virtual community of like-minded folks who are doing the same.
My name is Natalie and I wear many hats.
I identify as woman, mother, student, storyteller, yogini, earth lover and kitchen witch. I value conversation, community, curiosity, freedom of choice, and personal integrity. I am passionate about learning and have devoted my life to the study of yoga, meditation, traditional wellness practices and earth centred medicine. I believe in the power of personal practice as a means of reclaiming our inherent wisdom and love nothing more than to support and witness others as they walk their own path of remembrance.
The 13 Moons program is my most intimate and heartfelt offering. This is my inner circle and the space I have created in order to inspire deeper conversations about the wonder and the mystery of this human life.
We begin our journey through the year on the vernal equinox of March 20th 2019, when the sun enters the sign of Aries, and we will continue all the way through to March 2020. Each month you will receive a new lesson based around the astrological, lunar & solar wisdom of that moment in time. These lessons will include a written and recorded essay on the energetic themes for the month, an introduction to a herbal plant ally, a selection of kitchen witching recipes, a tarot spread to explore, personal practice & ritual suggestions, and a monthly book recommendation.
In addition to this, you will get a new mini-lesson with each new and full moon. These will include an introduction to the potential themes of that lunation along with a simple ritual or practice to explore.
By the end of the year, you will have a booklet full of resources and teachings that will take you on this journey through the year over and over again as you desire.
In addition to the monthly lessons, you will also get access to a resource library from the last two years of this program. This library includes -
I created the 13 Moons circle for women who are interested in deepening their connection to natural rhythms by moving through a full year of ritual practice and teachings inspired by solar and lunar wisdom. Though I use the term "woman" to describe who the course is for please know this program is open to anyone who identifies as woman/womxn/womyn as well as all non-binary folk. This program is ideal for -
"Natalie’s expansive knowledge of yoga, mythology and botanical healing rituals have made for such a rich year of reflection, growth and deeper connection not only to my own body and inner wisdom but to how I connect with the world around me. Each moon cycle has been a beautiful offering providing clearer awareness of the potential in each new day or season without a pressure to do more, be more, or rush through any of it. It’s been a year of steady inspiration and nourishment that I wish every woman could experience."

"This course was invaluable – it helped me connect to myself, the cycles of nature and energy around me, and the rhythms of the moon. Would recommend to anyone looking to deepen their connection to spirit and the earth, those seeking balance in their life, or those on the road a lot – this grounding course is just what I needed! "

"Thirteen Moons takes you on a journey through the cycles of the lunar calendar, inviting you to find beauty and magic in the world through each changing season. Learning through story, ritual, plant magic, yoga practice and connection with other women I found myself living in a world with new eyes. I recognize now the cycles of nature that live inside my being, I notice the subtleties of the seasons in my body – I know when to rest and recognize the call of creativity & movement. As life ebbs and , lows there were months of the year where I had time to engage fully with the practices, and others where I hardly had time to listen to a story. Even when I felt I had fallen off the wagon, I would eventually find myself with an evening to myself and would light candles, do the suggested tarot reading and use the inquiry questions as prompts for journaling. These evenings are some of my most sacred memories of the past year. Though many of the practices I learned in this course I could now do on my own, the community of women that shared their journey was so special and I want to keep that connection going. If this course is offered again I will sign up in a heartbeat."

My life has been powerfully enriched by all the moments I have spent in sacred circles with other women, and while I wish we could all gather together in physical space each month I also know how hard that can be with the busy lives that most of us lead.
So this is my offering, a way of creating a greater connection to ourselves, to each other, to the pulse of the seasons, and to the rhythm of the moon. An offering designed to bring more magic to your everyday life.
Join myself and other like minded women as we explore nature's rhythms throughout an entire year and deepen our connection to the world around us.
See you inside,
