Forest Sisters is women and girls gathering in the bush!
Re-membering that we are connected to the earth and each other. Creating a space of safety, solidarity, creativity and joy!

Forest Sisters is lots of crafting, making and playing!
Ecoprinting, smudge sticks, henna, yoga, hula-hooping… You are invited to play/create/dance/be with whatever is present and whatever is arising within you…

Forest Sisters is a co-created event!
What do you want to bring or see happening? Massage, hair braiding, reflexology, drum journeying, labyrinth, dancing, drumming…? Endless possibilities! Get dreaming! Be brave and bring something to offer, if you’d like!

Forest Sisters is also a space of rest and nourishment!
It’s totally okay to come and do nothing! Just be… just go slow…that would be awesome!

Forest Sisters is an alcohol- and drug-free event.

Come for a time, or the whole time, any time!
Age: all women, girls and babies/kidlets 3 years and under welcome

Forest Sisters is not affiliated with any particular faith, but acknowledges and honours the sacred life and energy which permeates all things, including the land.

Also, Forest Sisters is not affiliated with Seven Sisters festival in any way, even though they sound similar. Its origin and intent is quite different from its “sister” gathering – although many of us are going to both!! :)
