The Womb; The Void within has been in collective hibernation for long enough; inducing shame, imbalance, pain on all levels and estrangement from the body.
We as women are starting to wake up.
We are starting to talk to each other about Periods. However, the time has come for us to dig deeper and remember our Sovereignty as Co-Creators, Visionaries and Birthers of New Consciousness and share this knowledge.
What would happen if all women were educated and initiated into the menstrual mysteries and lived in harmony with our cycle and the cycles of Creation? Women embodying their True Nature will transform the way we live, our health, communities, organisations and dissolve outdated structures.
Dynamic Medicine Women are needed in the world. Women connected to their own Wisdom. Balanced in Their Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine. Women able to educate and empower others about their bodies, cyclic nature and ability to Create.
If you want to be this change and take your part in this wave of awakening, The Medicine Woman Training is a place where you can learn to access and live from your Sacred Womb, receive solid support to birth your own wisdom, then bring it the world your way.
The Womb Medicine Woman Training™ will give you the skills to offer:
Coaching on how to use the menstrual cycle for personal growth, self-care, creativity and spiritual emancipation.
First Blood / Menarche Ceremonies and Womb Centered rites of passage.
Red Temple Circles
Moon Medicine Circles; Dark Moon, New Moon and Full Moon Ceremonies for personal growth, cyclical living, cycle attunement and manifestation.
Guidance on how to reclaim The Divine Masculine and restore The Divine Feminine.
Embodied practices for Womb Clearing, Yoni Eggs and Womb Healing.

My journey in the Moon Lodge has been nothing short of transformational. I had a safe and creative place to nurture and grow with like minded women. I have been able to share all of myself safely and openly and look at my patterns through creative and embodying Womb Practises. I have learnt so much about myself, I have reclaimed all the lost parts of me, I feel in my Power!
I completed Year 1 and I can honestly say it was the most healing journey of my life.
I’m so happy to have my Moontime back after 7 years of not bleeding.
I was told I’d never be able to stop taking the contraceptive pill because of my large fibroids and the monthly flooding,
but I now experience beautiful cycles and bleeds.
About The Founder, Melanie Swan.
Melanie is an experienced leader in utilising the menstrual cycle as a woman’s natural compass to heal, awaken and genuinely come home to our seat of independant personal power, The Sacred Womb.
Her ability to birth new consciousness into practical, grounded, embodied, every-day wisdom is the reason many women come to her to restore their Sovereignty and blossom into The Medicine Woman they truly are.
Year 1 - Deep Healing For The Womb
Year 1: The first 9 months is all about you. Reclaiming your cycle right from your first bleed, truly befriending your menstrual cycle, healing the womb, clearing fears and restoring your true nature – so that on a day to day basis your life begins to dynamically transform into a magical process unfolding with every menstrual cycle.
Our Totem Spirit is BEAR. Bear will be working with you directly in The Lodge, as will other Animal Spirits in each Medicine Bundle.
Throughout the training you will be sitting in Circle & Ceremony in tune with The Moon, putting into practice progressive Sisterhood skills & closely tracking your menstrual cycle.
Progression to Year 2 is on successful completion of Year 1 and mutual agreement.
First and foremost we create a safe container with solid relationship tools and a sisterhood charter to enable the group to thrive.
THE MEDICINE WHEEL
An introduction to The Medicine Wheels we’ll be using as a map for the menstrual cycle, creativty and personal growth.
FIRST BLOOD, MENARCHE
Rewrite your experience of your first bleed, heal ruptures & repattern your whole cycle.
THE MENSTRUAL SPIRAL
Attune with & live your cycle as a natural pathway of Personal Growth, Creativity, Self-Care and Spiritual Empowerment.
HEALING THE FATHER LINE
Bringing light to this unchallenged topic. The unfathered daughter, owning our primal needs and creating safety and containment.
Dynamic practices to support you along the way inc. a guided Soul Retrieval, fear processing, clearing the womb and moon meditations.
Year 2 - Birthing & Weaving New Consciousness
Year 2 (the final 9 months) is about connecting with your unique thread of Wisdom, structuring it in this reality and learning how to bring menstrual cycle magic, womb healing, Moon Ceremonies and rites of passage to your community, your way.
Our Totem Spirit is HORSE who will be working with you directly in The Lodge.
You’ll get support & guidance to set up and run your own Circles and Ceremonies, and to take part in a Professional Placement in The Red Temple.
On completion of Year 2 you will do a Self-Authorisation Ceremony, receive a Certificate of Completion of The Womb Medicine Woman Training™ and be invited to be listed as a Womb Medicine Woman on The Sacred Womb global community.
THE SACRED WOMB
Exploring this matrix upon which our reality is built! Altered states, Chaos, Divine Timing, The Void, Birthing, weaving and grounding new consciousness.
CIRCLES & CEREMONY
You’ll start facilitating womb work of your choice e.g. a First Blood Ceremony, Women’s Circle or Moon Lodge with the support of this bundle.
All to help get you working in the womb world! Inc. aligned marketing tools, tech tools, website creation, energy management, handling challenges and more.
GROUNDING & INTEGRATION
A final creative project and circle work bring the year together, to ground, integrate & celebrate your knowledge and experience.
A Certificate says you’ve done the training, but it’s the activation of your Inner Authority that will get you working confidently.
Once you’ve completed Year 2, you’ll get access to The Medicine Bundles & Resource Libraries for the lifetime of The Lodge.
Year 1 really helped me reclaim myself, understand my cycle and use it for personal growth, creativity and healing. In Year 2 I have had Melanie’s constant solid support in me taking my massage, womb healing and red tent into my community. I highly recommend the Moon Lodge to heal yourself and to fulfil your life purpose.
And the sisterhood part is amazing, having loving trusting women having my back is the best!
About The Womb Medicine Woman Training™
The training takes place in The Online Moon Lodge – a space that’s been Co-Created with Spirit to provide a safe, supportive space for emerging Medicine Women to come home to their seat of independant personal power, The Sacred Womb.
The Medicine Bundles & workshops in The Lodge will give you the tools to connect with the pathways encoded within your body, so that you can reclaim your cycle and Sovereignty – and do the work you are here to do.
The training will support you to ground your inspiration in this reality, give it form and supportive structure – and all whilst taking bloody good care of yourself!
This Medicine Woman Training is for women of any age, with our without a physical Womb who want to incorporate Womb Wisdom into their current practice. e.g. Yoga Teachers, School Teachers, Doulas, Massage Therapists, Psychotherapists, Councillors, Energy Healers – this list in not exhaustive, so whatever your current path – if you feel the call, do apply.
The Training is not for you if….
I want to make sure the training is a good fit for both of us from the start, so here are a few points to be clear about to help you decide if this is for you.
If you’re seeking an online course and don’t want to engage in community or can’t commit to all the live sessions then this isn’t for you. An important part of the training and learning happens in the live circles and community.
This isn’t for you if you’re regularly using substances including marijuana, cannabis, kambo and ayahuasca. Deep healing work, recalibration of the nervous system and genuine Shamanic Journeying require a presence that simply can’t be grounded and integrated safely with the use of substances.

Womb Medicine Woman Training™ FAQ’s
I am interested but I'd love to chat to you first before I apply?
Great. Just click here to schedule a free 15 minute appt with me and we can talk through The Training.
I've only recently started tracking, can I still join?
Yes you can.
Can I do Year 1 and then decide if/when I want to do Year 2?
Yes. Entry to Year 2 is by mutual arrangement. As long as you have completed Year 1’s requirements, you may apply for Year 2. You can do Year 2 straight after Year 1, or take a break and return at a different time.
You may also just take year 1 solely for you own healing process.
How can I get a taste of the work?
Listen to The Sacred Womb Podcast. It’s free and there are over 50 episodes to choose from on a wide range of topics.
Can I Do This If I'm Pregnant?
Not in Year 1 – as a lot of the work we do will initiate a clearing of the womb, which is naturally not ok when Pregnant.
Year 2 focuses on bringing your work to the world, so Year 2 can be done if you’re pregnant.
Can I Pay In Instalments?
Yes you can. The cost can be spread out in 10 monthly payments, starting on acceptance of your place.
