Breakthrough Sessions with Hollie B.
Tools and transformative processes to create a life that sets you free.
Over the years I have shaped a style of working with clients which includes, but is not excluded to techniques such as :
- The Bars
- Woman Soul / Rites of Passage
- Shamanic practises
- The Question
- Process-oriented therapy
You can think of me as a Lifestylist for R.E.b.E.L.s and people who desire to create a life that sets you free.
Together, we can look at any area of your life, follow the energy and take a journey into your inner landscape to help you clear whatever is in your way to becoming everything you want to Be.
I facilitate you to acknowledge your own point of view and help you find the tools to make the change you need, to Be the contribution you came to this planet to Be.
Wellness Audit Session
At the Institute, Wellness is defined as that which you do to create a balanced mental, physical, emotional, environmental and spiritual reality that sets you free.
Wellness is through the lense of the Rhythm of Life, where each section of the map can give you all the information you need to take control of your own health and create a blueprint to create a life that is balanced, joyful and free, for always!
I know it sounds too good to be true! I am my own case study, and many of my friends and family have let me experiment on them too!
Eight years ago I was so sick that I couldn’t walk more than a few metres without having to crawl (read more about my health journey here). After too long relying on “The Professionals” to tell me how to get better, I took a deep dive into ancestral health and wellness, and applied what i learned to every aspect of my life. Now, I’m stronger and healthier than I was at 20, and I have the tools to stay well into my elder years.
You will fill out a detailed intake form before the session, and send it back to me. After I’ve viewed the form, we will spend a one hour session addressing where you need to focus and what you can do to Self Craft Optimal Wellness. For people who desire to get real about being Well, but not really sure where to start.
After we’ve had the Audit, you may decide that continuing to work closely with me will help you on your journey. Purchase a bulk set of 8 x 1hour sessions, and I will work with you, coaching you to Self Craft your Optimal Wellness. Allow two-three months in total to work through these sessions.
Person-to-person or Skype Consultations available

Weaving the Wisdom Keeper : a program for Self Crafting
A year-long journey in awareness of individual Oorlog, open to women of all ages. Weaving the Wisdom Keeper offers a tapestry of deep personal work for women who desire to heal the broken threads that come with separation from our ancestral ways of connection to the earth, the moon, the sun and each other.
Twelve one-day sessions offered over the course of one year, with a final Wisdom Vision Camp, in the forest. Sessions may be attended individually or enrolled for the entire year.
Each session runs for eight hours, over one day, at The Place in The Wilde at Mongarlowe, NSW. (1.5 hours from Canberra).
Ørlög : (oorlog) (from Old Norse)
the accumulation of an individuals ancestral “karma”, DNA, inherited conditions, actions, beliefs and traditions which creates potential for the individual. Individuals create oorlog for themselves and their children through their actions, beliefs, and even nutrition and health choices. (definition from Kari Tauring in her Völva Stav Manual)
Inviting the internal and external work of the shamanka, this program teaches a variety of methods for deepening self awareness and creating a life that sets you free, through the framework of the Rhythm of Life. Throughout the 12 sessions, women will gain understanding to weave Oorlog deeply in an individual and appropriate way, representing personal heritage, culture and beliefs.
The work of weaving your personal understanding of your Oorlog is the work of Self Crafting the tapestry of all that has been, is now and will become. It is a way of uncovering your deep ancestral roots. It is a way of connecting to your inherent Inner Wisdom. You Know more than you think you do.
Rhythm of Life Group Education
at your place / home / work / school
An exploration of the Rhythm of Life. Discover the women’s map for being in flow with life and everything in it, so that you can navigate the busy everyday with ease.
Get a group together for an educational workshop (with props and fun) for The Rhythm of Life.
- how women’s bodies and our life cycles are deeply attuned to the cycles of nature
- how you can work with The Rhythm to make your own life easier
- to always know when you will require rest or when you will have extra energy, ahead of time
- what you can do to ensure your own needs are met, even in busy times
- to make self care a priority and still have time for everything else!
This is an in-depth lesson (approximately 3 hours) that builds on the information in my eBook Rhythm of Life : a map for Self Crafting. The session is Incredibly interactive and heaps of fun!
This session is also an excellent way to introduce girls and young women to the value of their menstrual cycle, by understanding our powerful relationship to all of nature’s rhythms.
Rhythm of Life workshops give a language and setting for understanding our bodies, the seasons and the cycles of Mother Nature. Girls who learn the Rhythm of Life language together, will forever have a discourse that honours their journey through menstruation, self care, child birth and beyond. Imagine growing up like that!
Hold a Rhythm of Life workshop at your house / work place / school for :
- your next birthday : celebrate your sun return with a deep dive into the cycles of all things
- school/class group girls/teens : menarche and menstrual education
- school/class group boys : boys require menstrual education too
- workplace team bonding : give them something worthwhile to talk about around the water cooler
- ladies night out : call your women together, put up some snacks and have fun!
- mother’s club : babies are VIPs!
- book club : read Rhythm of Life then come together for the in-depth version
- mother/daughter special day : organise your daughter’s friends and their mums to learn together

I’m available to conduct your Ceremony.
A Ceremony is the marking of an event in a sacred manner. It is a conscious intention of energy and honouring of a specific time in one’s life.
In my work I’ve had the pleasure of facilitating sacred space for ceremonies that honour birth, first blood, union, the changing seasons of nature and Self and endings / end-of-life. It is special work, and humbling as I get to know the family and the individuals involved in marking the sacred time.
Any special event you choose to make sacred can be a ceremony. We will meet prior to your ceremony to discuss your thoughts and inspirations around your event. Then we’ll consult up to your ceremony day, so that your event will be everything you want it to Be.

Oh Golly, how do I choose?
I know right, there are many possibilities on offer at the Institute for Self Crafting!
Every thing you ever desire to know is available to you. It might seem like woo woo when I say it, except that you totes know more than you think you do.
Have you ever had that feeling when you meet a person that something’s not right? Somewhere, from in your gut your body sends you a message “watch out, this person is not awesome.”
What about when you enter a room and there’s a heaviness inside that suggests something not nice just happened? You find out later that the other people in the room had just had an argument or someone had said something rude to another person…
That heavy feeling is your inner radar that knows more than you think you do. When you work with it (by following the feeling) instead of against it (by ignoring your gut and telling yourself you are wrong) you have access to awareness that can guide you to make the decisions that are right for you.
