EUROPEAN TOUR 2019
April 26 – 28
May 31 – June 2
This series of LIVE events for singles & couples is part of a global initiative led by two highly experienced group facilitators of sisterhood / brotherhood events now joining forces to heal the wounds & unconscious power dynamics in relationships.
We have each dedicated our lives to the healing & empowerment of men & women through holding safe spaces for men & women to process past painful experiences in a spirit of brotherly / sisterly love.
Now, through our shared love, we are joining forces -drawing upon the lessons we’ve learned in our intimate relationships that have included the humbling journeys of divorce and sole parenthood.
Those experiences ignited our passion to support men and women to heal together, so we can move beyond the old dance of hurt and mistrust into a new era of reverence and mutual honouring.

Praise from men for the Forgiveness Ceremony
“I’ve been on a spiritual journey for 5 years. Never have I experienced a ceremony like this before. The men did their work, the women theirs. During an amazing ceremony, both sexes were united. Vulnerable. No masks. Honest. Deep healing took place. I invite you to join Franz and Tanishka and their Forgiveness Ceremony. Be careful: you might get more then you wish for. Which is exactly what made it so special. Go for it. You deserve this experience.”
I am full of gratitude for the exceptional work provided by Tanishka and Franz during a recent Ho’onopono ceremony I attended. They both were holding space for all participants in a way that was magical. It allowed me to feel safe to share authentically, honest and deeply and thru this experience I was able to heal some deep routed wounds.“
“The Forgiveness ceremony allowed me to show up in a fully honest way. I spoke out loud with my joy, pain, and guilt in the presence of my brothers and sisters. This helped me to release my pain, anxiety, and judgement. The process of listening to others reminded me that I am not alone and helped me to increase my trust and connection to others.”
“The forgiveness ceremony was a humbling experience. Personally, I found it quite uncomfortable and difficult to come face to face (literally) with the pain caused by the divisions between the masculine and feminine. However, it was incredibly healing to sense the power of forgiveness and witness first hand the gifts it provides. Following the ceremony, energies of innocence, fun and excitement stirred through the group, as the men and women mingled, with friendliness and playfulness. It truly felt like a loving gesture to the collective.”
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to transcend old hurts through soul transparency in a spirit of loving compassion, incorporating the ancient Hawaiian tradition of H’oponopono, a beautiful forgiveness practice.
Praise from women for the Forgiveness Ceremony
“Taking part in the forgiveness ceremony has been a powerful healing experience of the wounding the masculine & feminine has unconsciously inflicted on each other. To witness a brother in his vulnerability & to also allow him to see me in my vulnerability has had a deep impact on my relationship with the masculine and with myself.”
“Taking part in the forgiveness ceremony was one of the most impactful ceremonies I have ever participated in. I have always struggled to be in my vulnerability with the masculine. To witness and be witnessed in such vulnerability with love and non-judgment.”
“For me the forgiveness ceremony opened the door to start a journey in healing the feminine and masculine in me for the collective, to break a pattern we unconsciously picked up and continued to repeat dishonouring both masculine and feminine. I am deeply grateful this came to light as I’m now strong and willing to shift and continue healing.”
Sara Al Junaibi
“Wow the forgiveness ceremony! Literally was the most intimate experience I’ve participated in. And I’ve done many retreats and workshops. I have never experienced such vulnerability, truth and presence before.”

“Franz and Tanishka held a beautiful space that allowed me to start healing some deep wounds and for me to assist in assisting others to heal their wounds. I felt that a weight had been lifted from my heart and I know that was in no small part to the work they did.”
“For me participating in the forgiveness ceremony was a precious moment of insight. Creating awareness in us all being perpetrators and victims we can go beyond the defensive habits of pain and reconcile in compassion. Thanks you both”

Praise for the Sacred Union Worskhop
“My husband and I recently attended the Sacred Union weekend workshop with Tanishka and Franz in Adelaide. It was truly like an answered prayer. While I had just started following The Moon Woman and didn’t really know a lot about the moon cycles – the workshop advertisement spoke to me and I felt a very strong YES to attend with my husband.
For the past 5 years, my husband and I had attended long term marriage counselling and psychotherapy, undertaken online relationship programs, watched a ridiculous amount of YouTube and read countless articles and books. The Sacred Union weekend workshop was by far the most valuable work we have done and the richest advice we have received. We owned our shadows, unearthed our wounds and began the healing process.
The 3 stages of relationships taught through this workshop has offered me the big picture understanding that I needed to gain perspective of our situation. From here, I feel very confident we now have the insights we had been desperately looking for – to be able to move forward from our painful stuck place. Whether it is happily together or apart. We are both working hard for together, however, with these insights I feel empowered to know that once much personal work has been done, we will know whether we can make our relationship work in healthy way. In a way where we are still growing alongside each other, not disconnected and not suffocating each other, but deeply connected and at the same time honouring our own individual soul needs.
The format of the workshop, the practical advice, self-care practices, awareness of our cyclical nature and how to honour it, the experiential aspects and opportunity to ask questions made for a very holistic learning experience. We received gentle but extremely direct and honest input that was just what we needed to identify our wounds and face our shadow, so we can continue the process of healing, to flourish in our relationship and in our selves, rather than just survive.
Through Tanishka and Franz sharing their personal journey and demonstrating how they work together as a couple, giving practical examples whenever needed, made hard to grasp concepts much easier to see, feel and understand.”
Combining elements of Tantra, mysticism and social permaculture, this workshop offers a whole new perspective on how we do relationships…in a spirit of fun & play!

Tanishka The Moon Woman
Loved as Facebook’s ‘Moon Woman’ with over half a million followers of her daily lunar guidance blog, she’s a bestselling author of five books who’s taught ancient wisdom teachings for the past 22 years.
Her first book, The Inner Goddess Makeover, was based on her unique series of workshops for women that identified the 7 psychological feminine archetypes that comprise the feminine psyche, govern the chakras & awaken kundalini, the sacred feminine essence.
A leader in the global Red Tent movement, she has trained women in 44 countries to facilitate Red Tent women’s circles to support women during the most challenging lunar phase. She then created an equivalent program for men to navigate the 12 stages of the hero’s journey in alignment with the sun’s transit around the 12 zodiac signs. In 2008 she began channelling a series of Sacred Union books, empowering the masculine & feminine archetypes that govern the chakras & activate the meridians of yin/yang energy to form the caduceus, the ancient symbol of healing within the energy field as well as processes to connect soul to soul in every energy centre which she trialled with numerous couples.
A former stand-up comedienne, in 2013 she began captivating audiences around the world by decoding the greatest mystery of all time, ‘The Holy Grail’, from the perspective of the sacred feminine. In 2015 she created ‘The 28 Day Happy Challenge’ a not-for-profit project to raise funds, awareness and support for women recovering from the trauma of human trafficking. A keynote speaker at conferences, summits and festivals, she writes for numerous magazines and conducts online courses, speaking tours, retreats and facilitator trainings. Her latest book, ‘Goddess Wisdom’, is published by Hay House in conjunction with an online course.
Franz’s soul path emerged from his mid-life crisis at age 36 when his marriage ended & he was separated from his three children…events that were compounded by the death of his father. He explored various spiritual practices starting with silent meditation to expand his self-awareness and relationship with existence beyond the conditioning he’d received growing up.
He was then given sole custody of his three children & had to learn abruptly how to navigate and balance financial pressures with the daily challenges of sole parenthood in Bali, Indonesia and later, California, USA. It was his commitment to his spiritual development that sustained him.
Through this experience Franz discovered his passion for community and as a chartered accountant he worked as a consultant actively supporting the inception of intentional communities and a local school in Bali. This ethos led him to men’s circles and in 2012 he joined MKP (The Mankind Project), a global movement that empowers men of all ages through gatherings in 22 countries worldwide. In 2016 he was initiated into The Mankind Project’s three day intensive in Nevada City, California and has since attended I-Groups around the world. For the past six years he has facilitated men’s circles twice a week in Ubud, Bali. He has also led men’s gatherings in both the USA and Germany. Under the auspice of The Mankind Project he also organized I-Sex workshops to empower men’s authentic sexual expression.
Franz is passionate about providing a framework of support for teenage boys & co-facilitated 19 boys through their welcome to manhood rite of passage initiation at the renowned Green School in Ubud.
His core belief is if we want to change the world we have to start with ourselves… a philosophical outlook that is embodied through the practice of gathering in circle & acknowledging one’s thoughts, words and deeds. His intention is to create a harmonious and joyful world by courageously connecting with people through love and compassion.

“Tanishka is more than a facilitator; she is a woman and leader of authentic truth who honours all who cross her path. To be guided by her is a miraculous experience which will, if you allow it, show you a personal strength you had no previous comprehension of.”
‘Tanishka is a natural & inspiring leader. I have participated in many of Tanishka’s events & have observed her display an incredibly high level of awareness regarding the group’s dynamic. She is driven to make a difference in the world around her which she does through empowering others, creating community & inspiring new leaders. I wholeheartedly endorse Tanishka in everything she does!’

“Franz not only knows where he talks about, he also has a shitload of experience. Missing a father figure in my life, it is a great pleasure to have Franz holding space for me to process my stuff. He respects everyone, I feel safe and there’s no judgment. He’s a great leader of the tribe”
“I had the opportunity to participate in men’s circles facilitated by Franz on numerous occasions. He always provides a safe container for men to share deeply and I have never left a circle not feeling like I have become an improved version of myself. Looking forward to working with him more in the future and encourage any men to do the same if they have the opportunity.”
‘Franz holds the sacred space for men’s work with compassion, passion and non-judgment. I feel safe with him and am able to open up and go to the places I need to go, knowing that I am held and supported.’
