“My menarche ceremony was utterly transformative and healing. Penny's attention to detail bringing meaning and beauty to the ritual was extraordinary. I felt whole heartedly witnessed, celebrated and affirmed. Through it I have been given permission to be my unique self and to express my creativity and sexuality in the world. This is profound work.” - Helen C

I liked every class and loved that there were no egos, no expectations, just pure freedom and acceptance." - Frances H
