Thursday’s 2nd Feb – 4th May 2023: ONLINE
“Deep, clear, internally connective, magical. Bryony is like a powerful conductor of feminine energy and wisdom and a knowledgeable teacher of deep and almost forgotten feminine arts.”Katrin
Welcome to Womb Mystery School: a three month shamanic journey and training programme designed to awaken and heal the Womb space, anchor your devotional path as a Womb Priestess, supported by three powerful plant allies in Womb work: Mugwort, Lady’s Mantle and Rose.
“Bryony is absolutely incredible. This is one of the best courses I have ever taken in it’s layers of depth, curiosity and inspiration. Bryony is present, thorough and inspiring. I couldn’t recommend this course more.”Jessica
A three month container to guide you to the ‘blossoming you’ – the essence and spirit that lies at the heart of your Womb.
Through this experiential programme you are taken on a journey with sacred plants and symbols of the feminine – which act as keys to accessing deeper wisdom & understanding of oneself.
Together with other women, we share our stories and begin to weave the magic of plant spirit healing, tea ceremonies, somatic and shamanic embodiment, ritual and delicious self-care modalities to live a more full & rich life, in touch with our Wombs – the source of our power.
Each module forms an initiation into the sacred arts of the feminine with a 3 hour live call, recorded meditations & video content, PDF document with Womb Mystery School teachings, ritual and embodiment practices, Womb medicine making all held in an intimate container of women, forming a supportive space as we learn, heal and grow together.
This is for Womxn who feel the drum beat of their Womb, calling them back to the ancient ways.
It is for those hold a deep remembering of when a Women’s body was seen as an embodiment of the Earth, revered as sacred and whole.
In this modern age, the symptoms of a society disconnected from our bodies and the Earth are becoming more prevalent. The rise in Womb health conditions, such as PCOS, endometriosis, uterine fibroids and chronic fatigue are a by-product of a world that is far removed from the cyclical rhythms that are here to guide us through this ever-changing landscape. This course is about returning to ourselves in our fullness, integrated in all aspects: health, wellbeing, creativity, spirituality, nature connection and community.
Here we honour the intelligence of the Earth and our own bodies.
Within a supportive group of Womxn, we unearth our wild feminine power through an in-depth programme discovering the multi-dimensional nature of our Wombs and Sacred Plants of the Feminine.
“Absolutely beautiful course with Bryony and a powerful group of women. To create such a magical, protected space over Zoom is really an incredible talent. I feel the power of my womb has now been unlocked, and I can’t wait to see that blossom moving forward. Thank you for everything Bryony.”Anonymous

- Option for continued Shamanic Mentoring
To deepen on your personal path of healing and devotion with the sacred plants and the Womb, you will be offered a special opportunity for continued support and mentoring, intended to anchor this work into your body, and infuse with your service here on Earth.
Using these five components, we will create an informative map to guide us deeper into our Wombs and intimacy with the Earth:
Practices in self-care, working with healthy boundaries as we discover cyclical awareness and natural healing modalities.
This is about creating a balanced lifestyle that works in harmony with your Womb, allowing you to feel more energised, supported and nourished.
Here we tap into the feminine principle, which is all that is witnessed: ritual, dance, creativity, and emotion.
Developing tools in courageous expression, as we manifest our dreams and desires.
Discovering your personal path, we explore your unique expression of spirituality, and embodiment of the divine.
Informing a Womb-led spiritual practice, that meets your needs as a sovereign being.
Community is a fundamental aspect of growth and healing, as through our collective experience and being witnessed – transformation is amplified.
Gathering in circle for ceremony, intimate sharing and reflection, we are deeply supported in our journey of awakening and service.
To be in service requires that our work is Earth honouring, otherwise we step out of integrity of where life comes from.
Forming an intimate connection with Nature allows us to become a channel of this divine wisdom, reminding us of our place here on Earth, as a co-creator and steward of life.
Why the Womb?
As the interface of elemental and cosmic rhythms, the Womb offers a gateway through which one can travel through and to the other-world.
It is a place of alchemy. Within her void like chamber, holds the capacity to trans-mutate energy, the current of life force from one form to another.
As the source of our feminine essence, it houses our power, passion and purpose.
However, through living in a fast-paced culture that reveres “progress” and superficial beauty over the depth of wisdom our body and Earth holds, many are disconnected from the source of our creative essence. We have come to fear the dark, ignoring the cyclical rhythms that call us home to restore, reflect and incubate our inner knowing. This separation causes us to doubt and question our intuition, undervalue our creative expression and ignore the signals from our body when it asks us to slow down and listen.
This course is a calling to return to the wisdom of the Earth, the medicine that lives beneath our feet and the restorative dark of our Wombs – to retreat, find nourishment and explore practices that bring balance to the body and soul, awakening the creative and sensual essence.
My journey with plant spirits began when they started showing up for me in dreams, guiding me to otherworlds and magical planes of existence. In these experiences I began to see through the lens of the plants, learning directly from them the medicine I needed to heal my lost and grief stricken soul.
Our existence here on Earth is intrinsically interwoven with the natural world, yet many of us have forgotten this fundamental wisdom, often causing us to feel separate, abandoned, and confused as to who we are, and why we are here. Through my personal journey with the plants, I have begun to heal the scar tissue from the debris of life, and soothe the original wounding of separation in my soul – bringing a state of wholeness, and learning the art of bridging worlds.
In shamanism it is understood that plants have a highly evolved consciousness that allows them to exist in multiple dimensions at once. Without the outer distractions of the human mind, plants have a direct line to source energy – connected to the core of existence, yet a unique frequency of the seed that sparked the universe. Through their pure vibration they can accelerate healing, promote clear insight and intuition, and return our vibration to a state of balance, health and wholeness. At a quantum level, they are able to access knowledge and wisdom from higher planes of consciousness, whilst simultaneously existing on the Earthly plane. They are great teachers of embodied wisdom, anchoring into the knowledge that some of our greatest teachings arise from deep within the body and the Womb. For true healing to occur, it needs to not only happen through the mind, but through the body and spirit, so the transformation can be integrated at a cellular level.
It is important to remember that plant sprits are guides to healing, and are not intended as a ‘quick fix’ to any sort of ailment and misalignment. They can support the awakening of spiritual consciousness here on Earth, facilitating the movement of emotion and energy, allowing us to acknowledge the parts of ourselves that need to be expressed, released and held in love and compassion.
Our bodies and emotions are deep expressions of the soul, so we can use them as a compass for our healing path, whilst feeling the graceful support of the plants bringing us home.
The three plant allies we journey during this programme (Mugwort, Lady’s Mantle and Rose) have been fundamental in my personal healing of sexual trauma, lack of self worth, confusion and painful Womb conditions.
Module One: Bud
The Opening Ceremony
Entering the Temple of the Womb
Our culture has become far removed from the intelligence of the body and Earth, as can be seen in a system that encourages heavy hormonal therapy over simple lifestyle changes as a solution to Womb health conditions. We need to honour the bodies that birth and nurture us if we want to have balance in our lives.
In this module we establish our bodies as our inner temple, and begin forming a co-creative relationship with the Earth.
We begin our descent into the realm of the Womb, and open the space with a ritual to honour our sacred vessel.
Reclaiming our Womb as a sacred space, we release myths around shame and perfectionism. Witnessing each other in our fullness, we begin to build our sisterhood and delve into practices such as altar creation with the sacred elements and directions, cyclical awareness of body and Earth, and daily practices for clearing our vessel for potent creation.
Module Two: Mugwort
Shamanic Journey & Tea Ceremony: Goddess of the Wilderness
In our first tea ceremony and shamanic journey, we meet Mugwort – herb of the night and keeper of the mysterious feminine. The genus Artemisia comes from Artemis, Goddess of the wilderness, the hunt, the Moon, animals, child birth and women’s health.
This plant of moonlight and archetype of the Witch grows with tall fragrant branches, with leaves that are green on top and dusted silver underneath.
Mugwort is undoubtedly one of the oldest shamanic herbs, as it opens the soul and sharpens mental perception, whilst enhancing dream recall and lucid dreams.
This plant is highly valued as a Women’s herb for bringing on menstrual flow, easing in birth and delivery, and is often mentioned as an emmenagogue in modern herbals.
As a ritual and dream herb, Mugwort is powerful at inducing trance in a safe way in reasonable amounts.
In our tea ceremony with Mugwort, you will be guided to the heart of the wilderness, the place untouched by human intervention to meet with an ally and wisdom keeper who will become your supportive and informative guide on this path. We learn tools in concious dream work, and how to navigate the unseen realms as a source of guidance and nourishment in our everyday lives. You will discover how to ritually cleanse your space using Mugwort, and ways to work with this plant spirit for clarity and precision.
Module Three: Witch
Element: Earth & Water
Wild and Wise Wisdom of the Feminine
Witch is a word that has been misunderstood, shamed and misused for centuries – here I use it as a reclamation of the forgotten feminine, the wise women who communicated with the plants, flowers and trees, trusted her intuition and was guided by spirit. When we reclaim these rejected female archetypes, we awaken to our sovereignity and power.
In this session, we delve into the mythos and history of the Witch, discover plants for enhanced perception and protection, with a shamanic embodiment journey to retrieve this archetype from the depths of the Earth, activating our intuition and reclaiming our Womb Sovereignity.
Module Four: Lady’s Mantle
Shamanic Initiation & Tea Ceremony: The Womb Alchemist
For our second tea ceremony, we gather with the auspiscous plant ally and Womb medicine that is Lady’s Mantle. The Latin name for Lady’s Mantle is Alchemilla Vulgaris with Alchemilla meaning ‘alchemy’ – the inner and outer transformation of spirit and matter. A powerful companion in Womb work, Alchemilla is ruled by Venus, who dances the flower of life pattern in the night sky, and whose symbol is emblematic of the feminine, the Womb, and the potential for transformation in the human form.
In our journey with Lady’s Mantle we meet with the Womb of the Earth, working to heal our relationship with the deep feminine, and each other, the wounding that has us feeling separate from the whole. Here we reunite with spirit and the Earth as our home.
In our dance with this benevolent plant, we offer all that does not serve to be alchemised by the intelligence of Water, creating healing on the emotional plane, and clearing negative imprints in the Womb. Lady’s Mantle has been referred to as the alchemists secret, teaching us the art of transformation – bringing acceptance and compassion into the challenging situations of our lives.
Working with tools for inner alchemy, we learn the practice of becoming the hollow bone – the vessel through which spirit moves through uninhibited, able to potentise healing and transformation on a macro and micro level.
Module Five: Stirring the Cauldron
Element: Water & Fire
Combining the Elements for Transformation
It has been suggested that the spiral is the most ancient symbol of human spirituality. The downward, inward spiral that transforms spirit to matter, and the upward spiral motion that turns matter to spirit. It is fundamental in the structuring and manifestation of nature, and so it is through the spiral that we return to our true essence of love and wholeness.
We are each unique emanations of the whole that birthed the universe, within us we house the sacred elements that desire for us to remember our inheritance as co-creators in this life.
Using the allegory of the Spiral, we undergo a ritual to discover what lies at the very centre the Womb, the core of our feminine essence. This is a journey to authenticity and belonging, as we shed the skins of the past to come home to ourselves in our fullness.
Stepping onto the spiral path is like a metamorphosis, those who enter its serpentine path, don’t emerge the same.
Exploring techniques in alchemical embodiment, we enter an altered state recognised as Womb consciousness, learning how we can anchor ourselves in this place, guided by our Womb – the inner compass. Through developing an informative map into the Womb, we learn the art of combining the elements to create practices for transformation and empowerment.
Module Six: Rose
Shamanic Journey & Tea Ceremony: The Elemental Priestess
The iconic Rose – the mystery and history of this plant is beyond comparison to any flower; the oldest fossilized rose is dated to be 35 million years old. These ancient flowers contain within them a wild beauty – grace found within its blooms, and darkness among its thorns.
This powerful plant has captivated people for millennia, along with it’s usage in folk and women’s medicine.
Its magical uses connect it to both love and grief, offering medicine for the heart. Medicinal usage is vast, extending from being a cooling agent for the mind and body, restorative and balancing to the nervous system, supportive to digestive health and the immunity.
Rose has a long affinity with the feminine, known as the “Queen of Flowers” – and it is with this flower that we discover what it means to be an Elemental Priestess and conduit of Earth medicine.
In our tea ceremony with Rose, she initiates us into the path of Love and our higher devotional service, supporting as we soothe the cracks formed within our Wombs, so that we may step forward in our fullness, integrated and whole. This ritual will be a Sacred Marriage of the Elements, uniting the different aspects of ourselves – realising that we can be both/and – wild and wise, sovereign and supported, express beauty and our rage, each forming a unique yet complete petal on the mult-dimensional Rose.
This alchemical flower teaches us inner union – how to be present and in a state of balance in a world which is so fragmented. To love in these times is a courageous act, and so needed for our collective freedom as it is through compassion, that we can transform.
Module Seven: Voice of the Earth
Element: Fire & Air
The Essence of Creation and the Womb
Forming a co-creative partnership with the Womb and the Earth, allows us to become a conduit for it’s wisdom, held in equal standing in our relationship with nature and creation. Here we discover that channeling isn’t necessarily about hearing voices or having psychedelic visions, but about waking up to the knowledge that lives within our bodies, that is in deep communication with the Earth. It’s important that we do this work on a foundation of discernment, healthy boundaries and inner-knowing, as to give our authority over to an unseen energy would be disempowering.
Here we remember that all of our cells form a direct communication line to spirit, just like the plants, so we are always intimately connected to this source, and able to ask for guidance and give voice to this primal wisdom.
Learning how to cultivate a deep relationship with self, spirit and nature, we discover the method for birthing your Earth Song – your unique medicine and gifts that comes from the deepest embodiment of your essence. As we continue to empty our vessel of the stories that have you living in fear, we open our hearts and Wombs to the possibility of expansion, and co-creation with the unseen realms, to bring the life you truly desire into fruition.
Module Eight: Blossom
Awakening the Path of Devotion and Service
This final gathering will be a ceremony of Womb empowerment and blessing, as we reflect on the steps taken from bud to blossom, and witness each women in her reclamation of the feminine essence.
In this integration meeting, we are connecting to our personal divinity in a collective prayer space, reflecting on what we have shed and gathered in the continual process of rebirth, through our journey with our Wombs and the Earth. Having begun weaving the practices into our lives, we witness each women as she shares her experience, seeing how we can be inspired and uplifted by another’s unique expression, and support each women as she comes into her blossoming.
Something really powerful happens when womxn come together, we find ourselves interconnected through our shared journeys, empowered by the solidarity of both being held and holding.
Through collective intention, we have the strength of the group to manifest and make magic, transmuting centuries of separation and competition, that have held us back from our authentic selves and being supportive to each other.
The world needs empowered and liberated women.
The restoration of the wisdom of the feminine, draws closer each time a woman takes her own power.
By coming together as a collective, we are part of this rebalancing act, as we restore what was once ‘lost’ or ‘hidden’ behind the veil – recognising that it begins with womxn both honouring themselves and their stories. In undergoing this course in a weekly format, we build lasting friendships and connections that will be supportive as we move deeply with the Womb and our own empowerment. This is an in-depth programme that is designed to meet you where you are at, inviting you to go deep as you wish, or take a more gentle course if desired. Through a holistic approach, you are given a strong foundation to make informed lifestyle changes, on all levels – through wellness, expression, spirituality and community.
