Workshops & Groups
The Sacred Circle:
A group for women who hold healing spaces. Whether you’re holding physical space for others such as massage therapy; or emotional spaces such as social work; or spiritual spaces such as yoga classes you are holding a lot and often you’re doing it alone.
You need a space for yourself. A space to be with other women who get you and the work you do in the world.
The Sacred Circle is a discussion group around how personal spiritual values can sustain us, refilling our cup so we’re not giving from empty.
There are no spiritual dogmas, no boxes to fit into or perscribed belief systems. Spirituality is unique and personal. We explore what it means to you and how your personal spiritual beliefs + values can support your work.
A strong spiritual foundation adds to your self-trust so you can make decisions from your inner compass, speak confidently from a place of wisdom and replenish the energy you give to others.
This is what keeps you in service to others without burning yourself out.
Being in community with other women who understand you, see you and accept you just as you are is another way to sustain yourself and your work in the world.
We need each other, especially now.

Sacred Calling: Coming Soon
A three month mastermind group for women Space Holders. Get creative in your business from personal, spiritual values so you’re clearer on what you’re in service to.
You hold space for others, but who holds space for you and your work?
You probably have all sorts of ideas on how to be in service to others, but those big ideas feel a little tooooooo big to hold on your own sometimes.
Being in a safe space with other women who get you because they do similar work in the world can get your creative juices flowing. Not to mention, Space Holders know when to nudge people out of their comfort zone versus when to let people incubate until their ready ~so why not do that for each other?
We also need the power and reflection of group to help us get clarity on what’s calling us into service to something greater.
That clarity leads to confidence in speaking your truth, but as we start to step out into our truth our very human egos have a lot to say about it! Again, this is where the group can be a safe space to work through all the crud keeping that truth stuck in your throat.
The Sacred Calling is a three month container facilitated by me, Shawna Barber to focus on: business + spirituality + service.
TSC combines group workshops with 1:1 personal mentoring.
Each month the group will meet with a specific focus. Examples:
- Your Gifts and Values: what you bring to your work
- The High Vision: getting clear on what you’re in service to
- Opportunities for Healing: common triggers that airse in creating a business
We’ll break for lunch and social time ~ and because it’s your turn to be held lunch is provided!
We’ll finish up with a creative jam session where you’ll get to bring what is present for your to the group -whether it’s brainstorming workshop ideas, having eyes on your social media for feedback or any other issue specific to your work you’d like the group to think tank.
We’re all in different places in our work. Some have been in business for a while, some are changing focus, some are just starting out!! So there’s no formulas, no prescriptive solutions, no boxes to fit into.
There is so much collective wisdom within peer groups. It’s a gift tot have others reflect you back to yourself in a way you can’t see on your own.
Together we can support one another to grow and flourish in our own time and pace. Often, with the right group that growth happens much faster than when we’re stuck with just our own mind to bounce off of.
A fortnight after each group you’ll have a personal 1:1 mentoring session with me over Zoom. Again, there’s no formula here. I meet you where you’re at. You might need accountability or a deep dive into a personal wound that’s effecting your work.
- Group sessions Fridays 10:30am till 2:30pm February 11, March 11 and April 8.
- Morning tea and lunch provided (please advise dietary restrictions).
- Small group -max 8 women.
- 1:1 mentoring sessions the following fortnight (total of 3 60 minute sessions over Zoom)
- Gentle, supportive encouragement to guide you inward. No hustle, no pressure.
- No boxes to fit. We’ll meet you where you’re at with what’s present for you.
- Location: Aldinga area TBD

You already are perfect, just as you are. Together we’re just clearing away the crap that is obscuring the YOU that is already there.
I love, I mean I really truly LOVE, all of my clients. I would love nothing more than to see you through your growth. On the other side of this you are going to be….exactly as you are meant to be. You are going to be closer to the you that you have always been underneath all the pain, stuffed emotions, and limiting beliefs.
I am here for you.
Working with Shawna enabled me to unstick and unlearn programs that didn’t serve me, and uncover and embody truths that were there, underneath all along. I have not experienced a more practical, whole-self method of change.
Before I started breathwork sessions with Shawna I had suffered a spinal injury …. I wasn’t able to ever go back into nursing. I was depressed to the point of not wanting to remain on Earth and be a burden to my family. During a breath session with Shawna I saw an endless web of threads joining together every Soul. After my breathwork sessions, I feel like I have been able to reconnect to my faith, to heal my body on an energetic level, to accept who I am and work to the best of my ability. I was also able to embrace my unique gifts and create my business: Soulful Life with Tori.
I was in a state of unbalance, confusion, chaos in my personal life, trying to sort out emotions and not coping very well, on top of being a mum, wife, business owner and everything else. During my work with Shawna, I experienced revelations of self-discovery and a higher sense of self-worth and integrity. Afterwards, I had a better sense of understanding myself. I don’t think it will be possible to slip back into my old self as Shawna has taught me so much. A BIG thank you for helping me to realise these big transformations and guiding me through….I will be forever grateful.
Some people come along in your life who genuinely want to be available to you as you try to navigate your way through life. Shawna is one of those people. She has an innate ability to break down the walls between her and her fellow humans, to create a space where being vulnerable and speaking the truth is supported and encouraged. Shawna has a gentle way of guiding people towards their own truth.
