Considerately empowering YOU to reclaim your power
The time is here to live as your TRUE radiant self!
Hello, I’m Helen the founder of Soulful Woman Rising® and I’m delighted that you have landed here. My live virtual ceremonies open space for like-hearted women to gather together, regardless of geographic location. The invitation is for women to THRIVE in their full power and authenticity; cultivating a life of meaning, bliss, gratification and abundance.
In order to THRIVE, we must learn to be self-realised; a personal journey of self-awareness, exploration, healing and empowerment. The key to self-realisation is practicing and mastering techniques that allow us to be our own source of healing, empowerment and celebration. The intention of my virtual ceremonies is to facilitate guided practices that considerately cultivate the self-awareness, deep healing and gentle empowerment that’s required to unlock the path to self-realisation.
Inviting You Into The Sanctuary Of Ceremony
A virtual ceremony provides invaluable time for YOU, away from the distraction and/or responsibility of daily life. Ceremonies are a quiet haven to consciously connect to and be with fully present with YOURSELF. The virtual circle is a professionally held space for you to access deeper levels of self-awareness and expand through self-healing and self-empowerment.
Delivering a proven framework that provides clarity, cultivates self-healing and facilitates self-realisation
As space holder and ceremony facilitator, I offer a structured approach of knowledge sharing, inner journey guidance and proven practices rooted in women’s mysteries. This framework enables you to relax into the ceremony process, feeling held and supported. My desire for you, is to be able to let go of the beliefs that hinder you, emotional patterns that bind you and unhelpful coping strategies that restrict you. This opens space for you to consciously connect with and align to your inner resources such as confidence, self-belief, courage and worthiness, as well as your innate gifts.
Opening & Creating Sacred Space
We begin with the ceremonial practice of opening sacred space, so that we have a united container for us to gather together. This establishes a safe and protected energetic environment for all. Formally opening space ensures that we connect and are present from a place of reverence, grace and humility. Sacred space helps us to be fully present with our bodies, thoughts and feelings, as well as in the present moment.
Each ceremony is crafted around a theme that relates to a particular aspect of wellbeing or personal development. This collectively clarifies and sets the intention for the ceremony. I believe that wisdom sharing is a fundamental part of the ceremony, as it provides essential context for self-healing and self-realisation. It is an opportunity for learning and encourages you to discern how the theme relates to you personally. Often, wisdom sharing is a catalyst for the flow of thoughts, feelings and/or sensations that may have been previously suppressed or repressed. Be reassured that only that which is ready to emerge from the shadows of your unconscious into the light of your consciousness for healing will present itself.
You will be gently led through a guided relaxation practice. The purpose of this is to deactivate your fight, flight, freeze response (sympathetic nervous system) that may generate resistance. By consciously stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) you slow your heart rate, helping you to feel relaxed and calm. Taking this time to relax and be present with yourself also establishes a nurturing physical, mental and emotional environment for you.
The guided journey is crafted by myself and is tailored to the theme of the ceremony. You are guided into the landscapes of your heart, mind, body and soul, where the keys to self-realisation are waiting to be discovered. Through self-enquiry practices you can gently excavate and heal the unconscious limiting beliefs, emotional patterns or unhelpful behavioural patterns that are preventing you from thriving as your authentic self. Self-empowerment practices then encourage you to embody your authentic resources and gifts, generating lasting transformation.
Closing Sacred Space & Ceremony
We conclude by closing sacred space and the ceremony; completing our time together. Formally closing space ensures that we disconnect from our communal space in circle and return to holding space for ourselves in our own respective places.
The Benefits Of Ceremony
The benefits of ceremony are far reaching into all the subtle crevices of our ‘self’ and our life. When we consciously choose to alter how we think, feel and behave, the benefits ripple into all elements of who we are and how we experience life. Personal benefits may include emotional health and resourcefulness that enables you to navigate times of change or challenge. Mental wellbeing is another consideration, that is generated through improved self-esteem, self-confidence, self-belief and self-worth. Life benefits can include healthy relationships that are mutually respectful rather than one-way, a dream career using your gifts rather than a role you settle for through fear of failure or a life of abundance in all its forms.

A beautiful ceremony. I love taking part in Helen’s ceremonies, as she takes time to set up safe space for us to journey and they are always beautiful guided journeys.
I have learnt so much about myself since taking part in sessions, ceremonies and mentoring with Helen and I’m now in full self realisation and changing my life.
It’s also lovely to sit in ceremony with some lovely women who I’d never have met if it had not been for Helen’s groups.
Thanks so much

Helen’s ceremonies are just magical! She takes you on a wonderful journey of discovery and self-realisation. You are held within the most gentle, and loving energy. I am always left feeling calm, peaceful and really inspired. In the days following the ceremony I feel so lit up and “on purpose.” It is also nice to share space with such lovely, like-minded people. I really can’t recommend Helen’s ceremonies enough.

So pleased I gifted myself this evening to sit in circle for the Time to Thrive 11.11 ceremony.
In 2019 I was surviving. It was a really challenging time for me but with Helen’s guidance and the support of the lovely ladies in this group, I began to heal and slowly turn my life around. Using the practices taught to me by Helen, I now have a happy, contented life. Through meditation and daily gratitude I keep myself strong.
I found myself drawn to this ceremony and gained so much energy from it. The support of other like minded women is so uplifting, it was wonderful to connect again .
If you are thinking of joining a ceremony, just do it! I haven’t looked back.
