Cycle to the Moon is based on the author’s workshops, Sacred Cycle and Cycle to the Moon, offering practical support for every woman who wishes to bleed consciously.

It is a celebration of the menstrual trinity: menarche, first blood of the maiden; menstruation, the cycles of the mother; menopause the last blood of the wise crone.

This contribution to holistic menstruation reaches beyond culture, taboos and maternal conditioning, and touches the heart of what it means to be a woman. We are all connected to Grandmother Moon, and our bodies reflect the lifestyle we choose.

In the style of a journal, this book invites the reader to celebrate her body through reconnecting with her cycles.

The Birthkeepers: reclaiming an ancient tradition

My mother, Angelikah, birthed eight children naturally, her last three at home, unassisted by doctor or midwife. She has deeply inspired me. My own experiences of birth have been: a beautiful birth by candlelight in my bedroom; and an induced birth in hospital with my baby born ‘blue’, and spending the first few days of life attached to all sorts of machines in NICU. My book The Birthkeepers: reclaiming an ancient tradition is a book I wish had been ingrained into me before I became a mother. The influences around us play a huge role in birth. “Positive birth stories only, please, my baby is listening” should be worn on t-shirts by all pregnant women.

The Birthkeepers: reclaiming an ancient tradition

"Just felt in my heart this morning to send you this mail because of the inspiration I got from reading your book. The Birthkeepers was just enormous in the birth of my daughter, Uma Grace, who is now five weeks old. Your book really did change my life, and to say I am grateful for coming across it and you is a HUGE understatement. So all I can say is Thank you!

Thank you for the work you do, and the words you write. You're amazing!"

Blessings and Love,
Ijay

Life without school: the quiet revolution

When I was a child, two of my younger siblings were home educated for a while. I was so jealous! I hated school. I felt such envy that they could stay home with my mother all day, enjoying lunch in the Sun and reading books together. I think I knew then and there that my own children wouldn’t be forced to go to school. Life without school: the quiet revolution is the story of my family’s home education journey.

Stretch Marks: selected articles from The Mother magazine 2002-2009

I began publishing The Mother magazine in February 2002, and have loved this part of my life. What an honour to read so many insightful articles, and to see such gorgeous photos. Some of the highlights for me have been events, such as The Mother family camps, where we’ve been able to meet subscribers and their families. Stretch Marks: selected articles from The Mother magazine 2002-2009 is a collection of some of the best articles we published, and ones I feel are of great benefit to parents.

The Mystic Cookfire: the sacred art of creating food to nurture friends and family

The Mother magazine camps have been catered for by us, and have featured a wholefood, plant-based menu. Year after year people would ask for the recipes and this is how The Mystic Cookfire: the sacred art of creating food to nurture friends and family was born. It began as a collection of the recipes from camp but grew into something much larger than I could have imagined. Illustrated by The Mother magazine’s breastfeeding columnist Sara Simon.

The Mystic Cookfire: the sacred art of creating food to nurture friends and family

"Jane is enjoying her new cookbook, The Mystic Cookfire by Veronika Sophia Robinson, a mighty tome overflowing with pot bubblin’ recipes and a huge amount of wonderful guidance regarding a holistic, vibrant approach in the kitchen and in life generally. I bought it for Janes birthday and since then we’ve tried a few of the lip-smacking recipes and love 'em. If we were dishing out marks out of 5, we’d give it a 4.9999999999999999999999999."

Natural Approaches to Healing Adrenal Fatigue

Sometimes life doesn’t go the way you planned. Sometimes, we can get knocked sideways. This happened to me, and Natural Approaches to Healing Adrenal Fatigue is my holistic journey to healing my adrenals after they crashed. I wrote it because the mainstream advice was ridiculously limiting on many levels and I didn’t want other people to believe there was only one path to healing.

The Blessingway: creating a beautiful blessingway ceremony

In 1995, I officiated my first wedding ceremony in Auckland, New Zealand. Trained as a celebrant by Rhonda Gola, of Unity Church, I’ve loved being part of such defining moments in people’s lives. There are so many ways to celebrate our lives, such as weddings, funerals, menopause, menarche, house blessing, naming ceremonies and so on. The Blessingway: creating a beautiful blessingway ceremony is for people who wish to gift a pregnant (or adopting) woman with a ceremony which honours her whole being. It shows how to create a ceremony from beginning to end, and which features to include.

About Veronika

A bushfire had raged through the mountains behind our home ravishing everything in sight. Walking through the charred remains, I had an overwhelming urge to express my desolation; to share the experience with others. I was about ten years of age, and it was after this fire that I realised I wanted to be a writer. I began writing poetry, and throughout school enjoyed creative writing.

At 19, I had a palm reading. The palmist said I would one day earn my living from writing. The journey from there to here has been fascinating, and my many and varied experiences, personally and professionally, all contribute to the words which flow.

My greatest inspiration comes from Nature. I’m always in awe of what she has to offer, and what she has to teach us. I’m grateful for every bird whistle and sunrise, the frost upon grass, fresh water rising from a hidden spring, and the glowing light of a Full Moon in Winter. I’m at my happiest when my hands are in the dark, damp soil, and the Sun shines on my shoulders.

I wrote my first book, Fields of Lavender, a collection of poetry, in 1991. A couple of years later, in 1993, I was commissioned to write a book on the history of the Royal New Zealand Society for the Protection of Animals. I called it The Compassionate Years.

Communication has been a key theme in my life. I talked so much as a young child, that my mum used to send me to the neighbours when her ears got sore! Can’t say I blame her. I was a right little chatterbox. Thank goodness I learned to read. I’ve always loved books. As a child, my head was up in Enid Blyton’s The Faraway Tree or some other magical place. I dreamed that one day my own children would inherit all the books from my childhood, but alas, I didn’t count on moving countries several times and the impractical nature of transporting books wherever I went. I also remember feeling so strongly that when I grew up I wanted to be a writer so that I could stay home with my children.
