Mamatoto Rising

An exploration into the deeper realms of motherhood through ritual, inner journeying, plant spirit wisdom and dance.

SUNDAY 26th NOVEMBER
2pm-5pm @ Mullumbimby Commons

The theme of this month:

“TO HEAR AND TO BE HEARD
TO FEEL AND TO BE FELT”

There was a time when mothers drew inspiration and guidance from the natural world.
A time when they could “read” nature.
There has been a time of the great forgetting. 
Now that time is over and we are remembering. This yearning to awaken this inner wisdom is stirring. A grander vision for raising our youth is being seen and felt by the many. Some in flashes. Some in feelings.
An understanding that we as women are intrinsically linked to the ancient green wisdom that is all around us. That this very link is what sustains us. Without it we feel lost, unsure , tired, lonely, disempowered and trapped in a 3D existence.
In this months Mamatoto Rising workshop we will use plants as our guidance to remember these ways.
This ancient futuristic way of mothering. It exists simultaneously in the past and the future.

We will :
~tap into the trauma of having to close this part of ourselves down in this life and others and begin to release it through movement.
~ explore connecting into the consciousness of plants for communication.
~ see how awakening this within us sustains our energy levels and nourishes our spiritual self.
~see that plants are in fact our elders and remember how to tune into their frequency to receive advice.
~ translate this into our everyday way of living.
~dance!!
~get out of our heads and into our heart!!

Suebee Fae is a mother of one gorgous boy aged 7.
“When I dance I set my wings free.
I dance to heal,
to pray,
and to express myself in the most deeply intimate way.
When I dance I feel my spirit soar and I am one with all Creation”
Suebee Fae
Suebee studied Jazz, Ballet and Tap dance from the age of 7, completing her teaching certificate at the age of 20.
Choosing to pursue a career in advertising, dance became a hobby in her early 20s ~ until a life changing adventure to Byron Bay was the catalyst for her to quit her career and follow her heart … which has always led her back to dance.
Since moving to Byron 7 years ago and becoming a Mama, Suebee loves facilitating sister circles and women’s dance workshops.
Suebee has a gentle and playful nature, and is passionate about people finding their own unique rhythm and freedom in their dance.
For Suebee, dance is more than movement, it is medicine, it is connection to the divine, and a way to express the language of the soul.
