Rite of Passage: Motherhood

December 2019 | 10am – 1pm, Windsor NSW | $49

The rite of passage into Motherhood is an initiation that changes you not just in name but on a cellular level. This gathering calls women who have already birthed as well as mothers to be to come together in sisterhood to collectively celebrate and honour this major life event.

As we celebrate all of our children’s milestones, so too must we celebrate ourselves as new mothers (no matter how many children you have, each birth is a new initiation).

This event opens sacred space for women to share their stories, re-write them and participate in a collective celebration of the rite of passage into motherhood through ritual and ceremony.

GODDESS HEALING JOURNEY

23 June  2019 | 10am – 2pm|Windsor, NSW| $55.50

Goddess Healing Journey is an invitation to all women who feel the call to connect deeply with their creative potential.

I have worked intensely within my own practice unlocking the creative pathways through intuitive connections with the Goddess energies; in particular the ancient Persian Goddess Anahita also named Innana, the Sumerian Goddess representing the cycle of birth/death/rebirth.

This will be a deeply nourishing and supportive experience which will take a small group of women into the realm of the Goddess to restore, replenish and enliven the creative power within their womb caves. Together we will co-create a sacred altar and set powerful intentions along with a drum journey, creation of an artwork to take home and a few surprises revealed on the day.

The workshop is limited to 10 participants. All art materials are provided. For more information and booking please go to Eventbrite

WOMEN’S CIRCLE: EMPOWERMENT

18 August  2019 | 10am – 12pm| Windsor, NSW| $49

What does it mean to walk in your power? How can we access the beauty and bounty within? Where can we source courage to shine brighter than ever?

These are some of the questions we will explore in this workshop.  I will share some of the tools I have found useful in exploring personal power. We will engage in group process, meditation journey and create a sacred object that anchors in the work we will do together that you can take home.

The women’s circle is in itself a powerful modality in opening deeper into the layers of authenticity and accountability. When we are witnessed in our vulnerability that’s where empowerment begins.

Bookings are essential as there are only 12 spaces available. Get your ticket here


November

Women’s Gathering

Crying Circle

3 November 2019 | 2pm – 5pm, Windsor NSW | $22.20

As the year comes quickly to an end, I am called to create this special women’s gathering to offer a safe space to connect to the water element for us to truly release and cleanse.

A Crying Circle is an ancient ritual clearing, an emptying of our vessels. Empowering us through our vulnerability, moving stuck energy, letting go of re-occurring stories that feel limiting and of course the importance of being witnessed through the sanctuary of the circle, to be held in the embrace of true sisterhood.

February

Power Object Workshop with Nazanin Marashian

11 February 2018 | 9.45am – 12noon | Investment $33 

As we begin the master number 11 year of 2018 we are being invited to truly manifest our hearts desires and step into our calling. This workshop offers a space where women can come together to hold each other in trust and faith that whatever is unfolding in our lives right now is pushing us collectively towards shining our light and walking our path.

What do you want to call into your life? What attitude or quality is missing that the Power Object can assist you in walking in your truth? What aspects of your life need more support?

Power Objects have existed across the millennia and are present in every culture in the world. They hold the vibration of prayer in a potent and tangible way. They can be used for protection, healing, uncovering truth, opening the doors of clarity to envision the path head, and connection to your highest purpose to name a few.

Each of you have the power to heal yourself; the Power Object acts as a container assisting you to break through the layers of conditioning so that your essence can shine through. You can use it for your own healing, healing for others, to strengthen your purpose and for protection. The purpose and power of the object is something that is quite personal and can be whatever you need support with as you journey into 2018 and beyond.

We will gather in circle on 11.02.2018 which carries the vibration of 2.2.11, a set of two master numbers that fully support manifestation, self-acceptance, abundance and a deep honouring of the heart so that your deepest desires and wildest dreams may be ignited and the witnessing of the sacredness and power within you to expand through the Power Object.

A collection of materials gathered from nature will be available for you to bind your intentions onto the object concluding with a silent meditation to fully integrate the work.

All materials are included in the workshop, however, if you feel to bring a special item to add such as crystals, feathers and beads etc. please do so.

I look forward to connecting with you!

The Red Project – Anahita’s Dream

IWVAC-Australia Exhibition 

inTransit Art Space, Nth Sydney | 1 March – 8 April 2018

This exhibition is part of The Red Project, a North Sydney Council Arts & Cultural event exhibiting artworks by 74 women at 6 venues throughout the month of March, in celebration of creative women in North Sydney and International Women’s Day

North Sydney Council has invited the Iranian Women Visual Artist Collective-Australia (IWVAC-Australia) artist among other acclaimed Australian artists to participate in a series of exhibitions to be held at six Council venues for a two-week period from 1 – 18 March 2018.

The Red Project takes as its theme the colour “red” as a colour associated with the earth, energy, strength, power, action, determination as well as passion, desire and love.

IWVAC-Australia artists Nazanin Marashian, Negin Chahoud, Sepideh Farzam, Farina Salehi and Azadeh Yaghoubi have responded to this theme with their exhibition “Anahita’s Dream” to be shown in the North Sydney Councils inTransit Gallery.

The Ancient Persian Goddess Anahita is often considered as the ‘Persian Aphrodite’ and patron of women. She is goddess of fertility, protector of the waters, of animals, and goddess of war. She represents all aspects of life and death – the mother, the lover, the protector and destroyer.

Anahita’s Dream recalls the power, beauty and sovereignty of this ancient goddess through classic and contemporary symbolism. Marashian’s paintings and fabric collages reference goddess worship and ritual of the ancient world, honouring the sacred feminine through the elements of water and fire. Chahoud’s watercolour painting expresses the divine love and passion that Anahita ignites. Farzam and Salehi create abstractions of texture re-calling a deep reverence for nature and the internal dialogue of the feminine psyche. Yaghoubi uses classical Persian symbolism infused with personal motifs to speak about the inward journey of purification and spirituality.

The Red Project is an ART MONTH Sydney 2018 event.

My work has been selected to feature in The Other Art Fair (TOAF) at the end of March. I am working on a new series of paintings and drawings for the TOAF that connects to my spiritual awakening and my work with the Goddess energies. This is the first time I am showing my work as a solo artist in the Fair. In 2016 I exhibited my In Transit body of work as part of a collective. Exciting times a head!
