We are gathering to honour International Women’s Day – Women’s Village style!
It will be a day of barefoot beauty in the forest, with the intention of grounding, connection, and an honouring of the feminine, aligned with the International Women’s Day theme of ‘Cracking the Code’ (through a Women’s Village lens).
Gather in circle for a meditation and a themed share whilst we create a flower crown, then let us nourish you with a fully catered lunch. For your afternoon session, choose one of these experiences:
- A Journey through Silence to Sound and Song with Unanyntji,
- A Guided Movement Meditation with Susan
- A Colouring and Conversation Circle with Carol
An introduction from our Service Providers and their experience on the day can be found below.
Wear your bare feet and floaty florals to really embrace the spirit of this occasion.
Our catering will astound you! Chef catered lunch will be served ‘boho picnic’ style and will cater for most dietary requirements. (Please advise at ticketing).
BYO creature comforts including cushion, (or low chair if preferred), blanket and drinks (including cup/glass). Can you bring along some flowers/foliage from your garden to add to the flower crown bounty?
This is an intimate event with numbers capped at 30.
A note about integration: can you allow yourself a slow/easy afternoon/evening once you leave the forest? Gathering this way with women will always have some level of healing for you, so it’s best to allow a little time and space for gentleness afterwards.

International Women’s Day 2023
A piece of the bigger puzzle
Through this event, Tania brings a glimpse of her bigger vision to create a permanent place for the Women’s Village in southern Adelaide, where women can come for connection, support and inspiration anytime they need.
She longs for the day when this place will be the permanent ‘event’.
Tania brings her space holder experience, her unwavering passion, her huge heart and genuine desire to support others to shine.
Tania Guest – Visionary and Leader the Women’s Village
To create a beautiful, welcoming community hub for women in southern Adelaide where they can come for support, connection, a sense of belonging and inspiration anytime they need it.
By offering a range of supportive professional and wellbeing services, creative and co-working hubs, and rest and relaxation spaces, the Women’s Village will offer a truly holistic approach to supporting the wellbeing of women.
We will raise $5 million dollars by 2025 to create a permanent, physical Women’s Village because every woman deserves to feel nurtured, inspired and supported anytime they need it.
You deserve to be nurtured the way you nurture others
The members of our Virtual Women’s Village know what it’s like to be apart of a truly safe, loving and nurturing sisterhood.
Every day, women are re-claiming their lives piece by piece to remember who they really are, before they got crazy busy and lost in the never ending ‘to-do’ lists and demands of ‘life’.
What are you yearning for? What’s that something ‘more’ that’s nagging deep inside you?
We all have access to this knowing, but often we need a little support to find it. Reach out, take our hand and let’s find out together.
