First Circle 2019
First Circle is the name given to the powerful women who come together to hold the space for, and create Being Woman.
Here are the beautiful women of our 2019 First Circle. Each divine woman has shared a little about themselves, what called them to step forward to First Circle, and their vision for the year ahead...
Hi! My name is Imke, my home country is The Netherlands but I’ve been living in Australia since 2011.
I’m married to Thomas and we have two little ones, Sam (2yrs) and Rose (5yrs).
At the time of my first Being Woman Gathering, my eldest was nearly 1 yr old and it was my first time away for 3 nights since she was born and it felt incredible to have space and time for myself. It was very special to feel the support and love from other Sisters around me. A true blessing to feel such a deep sense of belonging and I was able to connect with myself and others on a deeper level.
One gathering I was even FULLY pregnant of my 2nd child and was worried to give birth during that gathering and wasn’t sure it was a good idea to be there in my situation…
But the opposite was true ‘Dancing, sharing and Celebrating with my Sisters’, was such an incredible experience, best place to be while being pregnant
Every gathering we have an opening and closing ceremony guided by our beautiful Elders who share lots of wisdom with us, which is my favourite part of the gathering and those ceremonies inspires me a lot.
Ever since that first gathering I’ve been going every year and every gathering it different brings something very essential to me. I’ve learnt to love myself more and more, which has brought me closer and closer to my true self!
Hope to see you @Being Woman 2019!
Camila Caeron, creatrix of the ECSTATIC TEMPLE, is a spiritual seeker since her early 20's, once she lost her Dad by Cancer.
She is truly passionate about all sorts of spiritual and somatic embodiment practices that bring one always back to the present moment, to the aliveness and wisdom of the body through awakening feelings and sensations while giving the mind a little break. On her healing journey, Camila has been using her own body as a lab and has been undertaking a lot of different coaching and training. An important milestone happened in 2012 when she attended her first only woman gathering in Mornington Peninsula (VIC) called 7 sisters festival. She felt the call of the Shakti awakening and big shifts started happening in her life until a couple of years later Camila felt the readiness to start helping others to liberating themselves from certain life traumas and take responsibility to design a future that is more aligned with their heart and highest-self purpose. She found dance is her medicine and from there more embodiment practices organically came.
Camila has already attended and facilitated “Shakti Activation Dance” workshops twice at the Being Woman gathering. This year it felt really natural to step up to the First Circle and be more involved behind the scenes to give back to this community of inspiring sisters, aunties and elders some of the abundance of what we exchange in those gatherings. There is so much connection and transformation beyond words can express, and my heart feels really grateful for the opportunity of spending quality time with those women, doing what I love!
I discovered the Being Woman gathering this year in 2018. I felt like I had come home, that I had found a tribe of women where I felt held, supported and loved. My feet and heart (not my head) led to me to step up to being part of the First Circle for 2019 and I am honoured to be walking this path with my fellow First Circle sisters.
I am very blessed to live in nature on the Southern Gold Coast, where I gain most of my strength and sense of spirit. I am a wife, mother, daughter and sister! My profession is in social welfare, working for a non-for-profit called Aunties and Uncles, who find mentors for vulnerable and socially isolated children.
I have a varied spiritual practice and have “dipped” into many different modalities (including aura-soma, breath work and kahuna massage) and actively ensure that I spend time meditating, connecting to the earth and spirit and spend time in circle with other beautiful souls.
I look forward to meeting all of you gorgeous souls at the 2019 Being Woman gathering!
"2018 was my first Being Woman experience & what a perfect journey it was for me. I was strongly called to attend this event from the moment I saw a Facebook post about it, and true to form for me - despite my fears and the many concerns that first arose at the concept, I quickly took a leap of faith and purchased my ticket!
The reason I did this so quickly was that I had been putting out a call to the universe, a call to find and develop deep, vulnerable, heart-based, joyful, nourishing relationships with women in my community! And this event looked like a great place to start!
Honestly attending the 2018 event was a great choice! I was so deeply moved by the entire experience; the lease on life it gave me, by the transformation I saw occurring within me and others, by the joyful interactions, the feeling of being part of a tribe that I really belonged to... that I was also strongly called to step into the first circle and give back, to encourage others like me to have the gift of this community."

Over an above my work, which is a huge part of my life, I am a wife to Darryn and we have a family that includes 6 children (aged 28 to 9) with only the youngest Sheannah still at home, 2 grand-daughters and 2 cats! In my spare time I like to recharge by being engulfed in nature, sitting on top of mountains, beside rivers or on beaches! This is why gathering in circle, with women, in nature is EPIC to me! I do hope you are inspired to join us for the 2019 gathering, I would love to meet you!
I am very passionate about supporting and working in community with women and women’s circles, but equally supportive and an advocate for our men to do the same.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the last two Being Women gatherings and the energy was irresistibly strong to step forward to contribute in First Circle for 2019.
I am currently working as an Inclusion Teacher Aide after I approached the principle about offering breathwork and mindfulness at the school. I also have my own business using my healing hands in Reflexology, Reiki and Manual Lymphatic Drainage, infused with aromatherapy oils.
My husband, Matthew, and I are the proud parents of two gorgeous, very sporty teenage girls. I am then also known as “mumma taxi” as Matt works FIFO ( Fly in fly out) shifts.
I love spending my time in nature with my favourite combination of rainforest meets the sea, which brings back happy childhood memories, as I grew up in Tropical Far North Queensland.
I love ceremony, song, sisters and sharing stories especially with soul-full foods. I bring joy through laughter, squishie hugs and holding space with heart.
My name is Paola, I was born in Italy and I moved to Australia 11 years ago. I’m a single mother of 2 boys, 11 and 13 years old and I run my own business from home organizing tailor-made travels to Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
Even if I go back to visit my family every year, being so far from them and from my closest friends, it’s hard. I’m Buddhist since 1995 and my religion has always helped me to get through the toughest times but I have been missing having very close friends in Australia and creating deep connections with women.
In 2017 a friend of mine, Sonia, suggested me to participate to a Being Woman gathering telling me it was going to be a very positive experience and she kept on talking about her sisterhood connection with other women. She also informed me some aboriginal women were going to be there. As I’m really into their culture, I have done my University’s thesis on the Stolen Generations, I thought it was a great opportunity for me to get to know some of them.
I was very sceptic about all the “inner works” and the “sisterhood” thing but, as I’m very curious, I decided to attend the gathering without any major expectations except to meet some aboriginal women.
As soon I have arrived at the location I felt there was something more then aboriginal women to meet. I put my “walls down” and with an open heart, I met several women that have very different experiences and culture from mine. We shared intense and deep moments, we shared life, crying and laughing. There were no judgments or prejudices, I felt free to express the real me and to be part of a women's community that transcends space, language and culture. The workshops were amazing and there was something magical about those 3 days that I’ll never forget. The last day I was much more connected to myself and to nature.
After my second gathering this year 2018, I was drawn to be part of the First Circle to contribute to this incredible movement of women.
I really believe we women can change the world for the better and we need to work together with our open hearts, empathy and courage.
with Love, First Circle 2019
