A New Dinner Game

I’m getting braver at playing a new dinner game, after I went to a family dinner and we started talking about some big topics.

Ghost in my house

I have a ghost. My toddler sensed the ghost first, refusing to go into the “scary room” as I started to clock the noises, the voices and the moving objects.

The Becoming a Better Woman Challenge

I often get asked why I started Empress Crow and Rabbit. And I respond that it was because I had to learn how to stop Becoming a Better Man. Let me explain…

Saying Yes

Saying yes to myself, meant standing up in front of an audience and performing for 20 minutes. Solo! Unscripted! And with a whole lot of pleasure.

My Backyard First

At Clementine Ford’s recent book signing, I was overcome with compassion for a woman in the audience, whose own backyard needs were being gaslighted.

Hello

At Empress Crow and Rabbit we celebrate beauty, growth and the feminine.

We do this by:
Interviewing inspirational women living imaginative lives – to learn how life can be when a person has fully dreamed themselves into their skin. We share a moment in their life, we hear about the work they do and we see how they are changing the world by listening to their heart and rocking their bliss. Their courage, passion and faith – it’s our favourite medicine and it’s helping us all to heal.

Writing a blog – Musings From The Keyboard is an eclectic, navel-gazing and sometimes controversial blog from our resident Empress. From gaslighting, to dreamscapes to reviews – you’ll find them all in this here treasure chest.

So hello you! Please, sit down and stay a while. You are so welcome here.
Take what you need, both for now and for later, so you can start crafting your own conversations.

Rhea Dempsey

Author, educator, public speaker and advocate for natural birth

“What we are seeing, particularly with first births, is that Primal Woman is often coming out a bit scared, a bit not knowing and trusting her strength, a bit not knowing the territory. Often it’s expressed as that crisis of confidence that ‘I can’t do it’ or ‘It’s taking me somewhere I don’t want to go.’

Being in that space for me is holding sacred those unravelling moments – that this is the pathway, this is the territory of that unravelling. That opening of the heart and opening of that deeper strength within to birth that mother, at the same time while I am helping birth that baby.

I mean really, what could be more privileged?”

“I do feel if you are following your dreams, then the Universe will look after you. There’s also the fact that in order to do this life, I’ve brought my living costs down, down, down and so maybe that’s not something everyone is prepared to do.”

Rachel makes her two passions – music and natural incense – a viable livelihood by living in a converted van. We speak to Rachel about her journey thus far into her life More Wild.

Storyteller

I need to hear more stories about strong women leading beauty-filled and spiritual lives, and so I created Empress Crow and Rabbit. It’s a forum to showcase the inspirational stories of women in uniquely feminine careers. It's also a bridge between what we think we know and what we feel is right. Thank you for joining me – let’s all learn, grow and celebrate the feminine together.
