I AM B E L L E CREATOR OF
THE YONI TEMPLE
And this is my story
I sat in Circle with Sarah towards the end of 2016, it had been calling me in for some time. I had finally allowed myself the time and space to attend. Or perhaps I felt the fear and did it anyway.
I watched with delight as the women re-membered. As they re-told their stories. As they cried.
And laughed. Re-connecting with their blood. Their Maiden self. Their Wild Woman Ways.
By the end of that year I had signed up to train as a facilitator with Jane. Becoming a
Woman. The Journey itself was incredibly transformational. The work inspiring. It was the
year that I fell. And the push and pull of taking medication to continue through it all
was ever so present. I felt like I was in two worlds, and at the same time not fitting
in anywhere. My reality and my vision, out of alignment.
As I drove my dear sister to the airport we discussed her journey, one that had been a dream of mine for many years. And it almost felt within my grasp. But I still felt out of balance.
I felt the fear and did it anyway.
Walking down the hill to the Opening Gathering I felt everything all at once. Still I wondered
how I would fit in, I still felt firmly grounded in two worlds. My vision was becoming clearer.
A dear friend had an accident that changed my future. The fear of losing someone before their time, affected me more than I would have imagined. And in such different ways. I began to
look at my life and see how far I had come. And where I wanted to go.
I allowed myself to explore. To dance. To find my edges. To heal.
And in that healing I discovered myself. My desires. My passions. My loves. My balance.
My vision is my reality.

YONI MASSAGE THERAPIST
I received my first Yoni Massage in 2018. And I knew it wouldn't be my last. The healing and release in my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies was incredible. I was able to finally experience Surrender in all its guises. I knew that this would play a big part of my future vision.

CERTIFIED YONI STEAM FACILITATOR
I began my training as a Vaginal Steam Facilitator in early 2020. It didn't take long to see how nourishing this modality is, and not just in terms of Steaming, which I had already experienced. I am currently completing further modules to gain my Peristeam Hydortherapist Certification with Steamy Chick.
October 2020 - December 2020
HOLISTICE SELF-CARE MENTOR
As my Vision for The Yoni Temple grows and evolves I am exploring ways to not only heal but too create sustainable balance in my life. And not just how to create a simple daily plan, but why we need to create this non-negotiable daily practice in our lives. Bringing this to my community will be life changing for so many and I can't wait to see how this unfolds.
November 2017 - April 2018
JOURNEY OF A YOUNG WOMAN MENTOR
A rich and full training to facilitate circles and workshops for Maidens. After completing Becoming a Woman FT and exploring my own journey I knew that there was so much more that the Maidens and their Mamas in my community needed to have access to. Workshops and programs are currently being created.

BECOMING A WOMAN FACILITATOR
Completing the Becoming a Woman Facilitator Training (FT) as a Mother was delightfully healing and nourishing. Being able to shift the narrative of my own experience and explore the magic in what it means to me a Womxn was transformational and inspiring. My first , and certainly not my last, training with Jane at The School of Shamanic Womancraft.
