Maidens 11-15 years with Belinda Chapman-Smith
Young women ages 11-15 are invited to follow a path of learning, woven through this remarkable gathering designed just for them. The young women will have a unique opportunity to attend classes together, share ideas, and ask questions.
In passing on the folk medicine traditions we give our daughters its gifts of health, joy, strength, and self-reliance which are the birthright of every woman. The teen camp is designed to give our Maidens a range of skills in self-care and living in rhythm with nature. We will explore what health, wellness and self-care means to us, and play with different ways we can incorporate a natural lifestyle to increase our own health and vitality.
Our camp sessions are designed to allow for reflection and group sharing, so that the Maidens have an opportunity to develop relationships with one another, creating our own community that will last much longer than this weekend.
Belinda is a soul centred woman, mother and teacher. A shamanic womancrafter, living in connection to the cycles of seasons and the moon.
She is passionate about nurturing our daughters as they transition from childhood, through adolescence and into young womanhood. Belinda believes in the potential of sharing the women’s mysteries to empower girls toward embracing the magic of their bodies, cycles and connection to nature.
Belinda works with girls and teens both as a high school teacher and circle facilitator. She is a compassionate listener who guides teens to tune into their intuition, encouraging self-awareness and building self-confidence. Through the ancient container of the circle Belinda holds space to inspire and nourish mother-daughter relationships with conscious storytelling of herstory.
Belinda looks forward to circling with the maidens and co-creating our own community. Mirroring the “in-between” stage, the young women may have the opportunity to move between workshops and camp sessions. The Maiden’s camp will provide a safe space to share and learn from each other as well as exploring the ways we can live in rhythm with natures cycles..
