I'm the creatress of moon body
'm a writer, women's work facilitator and menstrual and sensual educator, and a Jewish woman of Eastern European and Middle Eastern ancestry, born in Somerset, England. I've spent the last decade studying, practising and teaching feminine reclamation work and embodied spiritual practices. Leaving my life in the UK as a magazine writer in my early-20s, I spent the next 7 years living between a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand and India.
My years on the island were spent in intensive study of tantric practices, in ceremony with medicinal plants of the Amazon and for several months in silent retreat, alone, in my house on a deserted hilltop overlooking the ocean. Later, I began sharing what I'd learned in this period of study at one of Thailand's premier healing centres. This is when Moon Body was born. Since then I've shared my work throughout Asia and Europe.
I've spent the last decade doing deep inner-work and I learned – and continue to learn – some vital things about how we can live joyful, connected lives. In my years as a feminine wisdom guide I've met countless women who were experiencing menstrual challenges and unfulfilling sex lives. I noticed how prevalent menstrual and sexual issues are among modern women and how effective the practices I share are at supporting women to move through them and reconnect to their womb centre.
Growing up in rural England, I have a deep affinity with the wild. A large part of my work is spent reacquainting women with their inner-wildness through menstrual healing, pleasure reclamation and soul magick. I am currently based in Portugal with my animal friends and herb garden. I am blessed to support women all over the world through my work.
I welcome you to this space with warmth and openness, hoping you find what you seek. Blessings to all your relations.
I'm a long-term student, practitioner (and later, teacher) of Yoga, Qigong, breathwork, meditation, the Jade Egg, sacred sexuality, dance and many more.
Years of intensive work with plant teachers of the Amazon and silent meditation retreat influence the way I hold spaces of clarity, cleanliness and integrity.
My primary teacher is always Mother Earth. Above all else, I am committed to living in right relationship with her and continually learning new ways to do so.
My studies of Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda and Folk Medicine inform much of the way I work. I'm grateful to have received these learnings from my teachers.
I was born a sensitive little girl in Somerset, England in 1988 (a place known to those familiar with the Arthurian legends as Avalon). I grew up in a half-Jewish family in a place in the world where there were no other Jewish people and from my earliest years felt a sense of being vastly different from those around me. As a child I had visions and talked to plants and animals. I spent a lot of time alone, exploring the beautiful grounds of the farm I grew up on. I had a vivid imagination from a young age.
In my early 20s I worked in Brighton, UK as a magazine editor. I had been experimenting with accessing altered states of consciousness through recreational drugs and plant medicines since my teenage years, but during my early 20s these experiences were no longer just experiments, they became addictions.
One day my life imploded. My father had recently passed, I was experiencing painful, heavy periods and volatile PMS; my relationships were in a mess and my mental health was suffering. I was hearing voices and was terrified that there was something seriously wrong. I knew that I needed a total change of scenery in order to move through whatever this was, so I packed everything up and moved to Bangkok.
With the space to be by myself and deeply relax, I entered a period of profound healing.
I gave up drugs and alcohol and began to clean up my body. I had been practising yoga and meditation for many years and in Thailand I felt called to study these practices in greater depth.
A retreat brought me to the island of Koh Phangan – a beautiful crystal-blue-watered, white-sandy oasis in the gulf of Thailand. I spent the next four years living on the island.
I took two years living between India and Thailand dedicated to my healing and studies of classical tantra, yoga & sacred sexuality. I began sitting in ceremony with plant teachers of the Amazon and spending extended periods in silent meditation retreat.
During one month-long retreat, I had a profound experience. I entered a state of total oneness and with it came a deep remembering of why I'm here and who I am in service to: the Feminine.
I spent several months in a blissful non-dual state and then slowly began to integrate my experience back into a grounded way of life.
I was invited to begin teaching yoga and meditation at Orion Healing Centre, Koh Phangan. I spent two years as a resident teacher at Orion, running the yoga and healing programmes with my then partner.
After seven years in Thailand I decided to return to Europe, feeling the call of my ancestors. After two years in Zurich sharing my work through Moon Body, I'm currently based in the wilds of Portugal.
Over the last 8 years I've worked with hundreds of women and it is my greatest pleasure and privilege to share what I've learned.
I know in my bones that supporting women to connect with their sexuality and cyclical power is one bridge back to restoring the feminine on earth at this moment in time when she is most needed.
I do this work in service to a power greater than me, with profound respect and gratitude to all my teachers along the way; to the elders of the Huni Kuin and Yawanawá tribes for their teachings; to my ancestors for their love and support.
May I continue through this walk of life with integrity and respect for all begins.
May I serve from a place of reverence for this life generously gifted to me.
Miriam’s Jade Root course was a profound experience for me. It allowed me to heal generational trauma in a safe and nurturing environment and create a deeper connection to my womb. What I love about the Jade Root Course is that you can take it to the depth that you want and need. I also love the practices that she incorporates: self-massage, energy practices and knowledge of the pelvic bowl. The Jade Egg is a powerful practice to unlock the wisdom within the womb.
The Jade Root Online Course has allowed me to finally establish my own jade egg practice. I owned a jade egg for many years but lacked clear and simple instructions on how to use it. I love the way Miriam approaches the topic and shares so many useful practices with so much embodied knowledge, wisdom, love and care. It's amazing that I will have this material available for the rest of my life so I can go back to the videos over and over again, which really makes it so much easier to keep using the jade egg on a regular basis and build a deeper connection to my self, my yoni and my pleasure potential. Thank you Miriam!
I joined the Moon Code by Miriam because I felt the need to connect to my femininity through my cycle. I had the urge to understand my cycle from a more spiritual side.And it was spot on! Ever since then I hardly ever struggle with PMS anymore. Thank you so much Miriam for sharing your wisdom and bringing lost knowledge back to us women!
I joined a women’s circle with Miriam in Thailand. I was so touched by her energy and how she created a beautiful space for women to be vulnerable and share their stories. Miriam showed us how to tune into our cycles and celebrate the feminine archetypes that we are cycling through during our lives. She inspired me to reclaim the divine feminine within myself.
Miriam is an earth angel amongst us! I was so privileged to receive two sessions from her and both brought me to a point where I felt safe to release old tension and stress. She is an integrated healer and can hold space like a solid professional. I wish I had more time to do another session with her because she really knows her stuff. You'll be so lucky to cross paths with this one, she's really special.
