Imagine having the support of sisterhood & women’s wisdom to help you navigate turning 40 or life changes like becoming a mum, divorce or menopause…

To transition gracefully from one life phase to the next we need to understand each phase so we can fully embrace it.

We resist growth when we don’t understand it…so many women fear the ageing process & cling to their youth instead of claiming their full power as women.

Fortunately things are changing…

We’re Reclaiming Our Feminine Rites of Passage!

‘Thank-you so much for my wonderful wise woman ritual day. As a rite of passage it couldn’t have been better. It so put me in touch with my power again & I’ve been floating ever since. You are a Goddess!!!’


This is a special opportunity to learn how to mentor girls & women of all ages through their life transitions & create beautiful ceremonies to celebrate all of our feminine milestones

For family & friends or women in your local community

‘Thank-you so much for an absolutely fabulous Goddess Hen’s extravanganza. We all appreciated all the thought & effort that went into providing a wonderful bonding experience for a group of girls who didn’t all know each other. Your sense of humour & gentle education was a bonus too.’

Helen & Janna

Facilitated by best selling Tanishka, with over 20 years experience initiating women of all ages through their milestones…

in a 5 day intensive in the tropical paradise of Byron Bay, Australia.

‘Absolutely the best & most interesting ‘hen’s night’ I’ve had the pleasure of taking part in. Thank-you’


‘Had a wonderful night! never been to a Hen’s party like this – it was great! Thanks’


‘I’ve spoken to all the women & everyone was blown away! Everyone had a ball’


Why Do This Training?

Ancient cultures honoured the cyclic wisdom of the feminine so women were guided & supported to grow gracefully to fulfil their feminine potential in each life phase.

For Europeans this tradition stopped during the Roman empire when feminine wisdom customs were outlawed.

Many of the modern day problems which plague us as women can be addressed by ensuring we have access to this sacred birth right.

Without adequate mentoring & initiations women make disempowered choices & experience inner conflict & shame.  

This results in dysfunction on all levels including: 

  • body image issues, comfort eating, yo yo dieting & eating disorders
  • dependence on substances as a coping mechanism
  • lack of feminine identity & empowerment resulting self-negating choices
  • infertility
  • post natal depression
  • women’s health issues resulting in 30,000 hysterectomies in Australia each year
  • anxiety & depression
  • mid-life crises & fear of ageing

‘The world will be saved by the western woman’

His Holiness, the Dalai Lama


Women everywhere are heeding the call to take action by reclaiming our lost culture of sacred wisdom teachings & customs.

This grassroots movement is creating positive widespread global change.

So if you feel called…this is your invitation to make a difference!

Who This Training is For

  • women who run women’s circles & events, such as Red Tents & want to continue their professional development
  • counsellors / art therapists who work with women to gain more insight into the feminine psyche & experience
  • celebrants who want to extend their services to include milestone ceremonies for women
  • women who enjoy creating birthday parties & celebrations of all kinds
  • women who feel called to support girls & women of all ages
  • women who are passionate about community building as a pathway to increase women’s health & well being on all levels

‘Brilliant Hen’s! Beats a smokey, noisy, stink pub – even picked up a few new ideas for my 35 year old marriage! Highly recommend!’


About Your Facilitator

Tanishka was initiated in 1996 into feminine wisdom teachings & practices. She is now a best selling author of 5 books. Her latest book, GODDESS WISDOM has been acclaimed by readers & critics alike & named one of the Top 10 inspirational books for women by Aspire magazine. Tanishka began training rites of passage facilitators in 2005 after years of creating & conducting rites of passage ceremonies for women of all ages including Budding Maiden ceremonies, Menarche puberty rites, Moon Time Awakening Ceremonies, Goddess Bridal Showers, Belly Blessings, Act of Power ceremonies & Wise Woman ceremonies. Her personal study & practice of women’s traditions was further enhanced by case studies in her private sessions with women for 12 years where she identified patterns they corresponded with key astrological transits. These days she only conducts private ceremonies for friends & family so this is a rare opportunity to personally train with her & receive the benefit of her depth of experience as a wisdom keeper of the cycles.

‘Tanishka, it was an honour to meet you & be part of the ceremony on Sunday. For the first time I felt safe to embrace my sacred femininity. Thank-you for creating this space.’
