Welcome to a home which is not a house
“Heal the Wounded Feminine and Embrace your Inner Power”
My name is Mmatshilo, which means mother of the grinding stone. My life path has been one of grinding my own fears. Through many years of facilitating spiritual retreats and healing circles, I overcame my fear and learnt to honour my ancestral gift.
My other name is Tumelo, which means faith. One of the challenges that comes with aligning with your faith is courage to rebel against that which is not you. Many of us are forced to remain in situations that violates our truth, dignity, and integrity. The irony is even when we ask for divine intervention, we are afraid to receive it simply because we are afraid of our greatness.
I am here to hold your hand in your journey of healing. My role is not to heal you. My job is to accompany you in your search for the healer in You.

Join our 9 week online Course
We are going through a turbulent but unique time in history. Age old beliefs of domination and discrimination are thrown into total disarray. Violence and suppression of the feminine is caught in the crossfire. Women who speak truth to power suffer backlash. Many continue to bear the brunt of violence.
For an awfully long time, we upheld the masculine model of power at the expense of the feminine. The time has come for feminine energy to heal and lead. For that to happen, women need to explore ways in which they have been harmed by patriarchy. This circle of healing is the first step towards breaking free from childhood conditioning which is largely founded on a dominator model of power.
