Celebration Day @ Birdsong
Birdsong Retreat is excited to host this event for girls aged 9 – 12 years old.
This is a one-day workshop seeks to enlighten, educate, and empower girls about the mentrual cycle and the cyclic nature of becoming a woman.
- Educate & empower our daughters about the menstrual cycle and beyond!
- Preparation for menarche: a celebration of the rite of passage into womanhood
- Informative, positive dialogue and lessons through creativity and fun activities
- Supported communication & connection for whanau and community
- Includes an evening women’s circle (for the mums/carer/elder)
The workshop is offered by Alice Tabak, a trained and experienced Celebration Day for Girls facilitator.
During this day, we cover:
- the physiological changes and stages of the menstrual cycle and also the emotional/energetic cycles
- gentle creative activity to keep hands busy while the information is offered
- small group conversation so the girls may feel comfortable about sharing their experience with their peers
When elders gather at the end, it is a time for guidance and support and the girls benefit from seeing they are part of a team. Lets equip and honour our daughters NOW about going forward in this integral and vital step in their lives with confidence and knowledge – together with friends and community we have found this a positive and profound contribution in their lives.
Mothers session included, 7-9pm Friday 17 September in Akaroa (optional).
Be part of this movement for our daughters!
Create a fabulous day out for you and your daughter!

“Willow and I attended this workshop and it really was one of the most wonderful experiences I’ve shared with Willow. It really changed the dynamic of our conversations.” – Jess, Christchurch
“I cannot recommend this workshop enough. We attended a few years ago and it was a fun day: crafts, stories, friendships and more with the girls walking away feeling empowered and with so much information about their own bodies and their place in the world. And I learnt stuff too!” – Sarah, Banks Peninsula
