Equinox Drum Dreaming

with Michaela Rosandich and Melissa Abrahams


A Drum Journey and Talking Circle ~ Inviting reflection and pause at this Autumn Equinox, the Seasonal midpoint when the nights and days are of equal length.


You may be new to drum journeys, or looking for a new place to circle this Equinox.

Come dream with us…

This drum journey is an opportunity to lie safely in the space while Michaela and Melissa guide you to a place where you can discover your Seasonal Wisdom.

What treasures lie waiting for you through the call of the drumbeat?

Join us from 1 pm – 3 pm at Cecil Street Studios in Fitzroy, Melbourne.


Broken Tears

I’m so broken and my Storm Troopers are so efficient, that when the occasion legitimately calls for it, I don’t know how to cry.

Hairy Autonomy

I am so grateful to live in a place where I can exercise my hairy autonomy both for myself, and in honour of all those who can’t.

DVD Therapy

I had compromised my own needs for so long, that when I was finally newly single and wondering “What DVD would I watch?” my mind would instantly go blank.

Reconnect with Wisdom – Moment in the life of Energy Healers

Natasha Colchester and Faye Oliver developed Reconnect with Wisdom – an easy system to help people trust themselves and reconnect with their wisdom.

Just a Dance

I felt the definite tendril of dissent bubbling in my veins as I was being pushed around the dance floor by someone else, claiming power over me.

Fear of Failure and letting it all go

For the last Dark Moon intention for 2017, I decided to end with a bang. I decided to meet my fear and let it go… I’m letting go of my fear of failure.

Eclipse Me La Luna

If you’re listening La Luna, please eclipse me anytime. I trust you always have my back and we are co-creating the path I need to be on.


Melanie is changing the narrative of what it means to be a woman and travelling solo, with a goal to travel to every country in the world before she’s 50.


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.

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.
