In our journey together, we’ll explore your relationship with receptivity, sexuality, and desire. Self-love goes beyond pedicures and spa days. Self-care is connecting with your true self so that you can build healthy, loving relationships with others.

Understanding and Harnessing Your Lunar Cycle
13. A number wrought with superstition and associated with bad luck is the ultimate representation of the energy of the feminine and the moon. The moon waxes and wanes through 13 cycles throughout the year and we have an average of 13 menstrual cycles during the same time period. This is not by coincidence, but by design.
A lunar cycle averages 29.5 days and the average menstrual cycle, 28 days. The moon represents our emotions and the shifts and changes in energy we experience as cyclical beings. When the moon is full, so are we and when the moon is void we are offered the opportunity to let go and release the previous cycle, ending karmic patterns and offering a chance at renewal.
Inner Seasons will help guide you through the energy of the moon and how to use it for more self-awareness, compassion, and self-acceptance.
Hi, I'm Saran
My name means Joy, and I love to support people just like you on their journey to Joyful living.
I'm an island woman, living in Canada with my family and extremely passionate about living life in symbiosis with the planet.
When I moved to Canada from Jamaica for University, I had no idea that this move would be my life's defining moment. Those first few years were tough. I spent years trying to adjust to and accept the changing seasons, often resisting the call to shift my diet and care for my body, mental and emotional health. Like so many of you, I dreaded my cycle. I always had painful, heavy periods in my teens and had totally normalized this as an adult. It wasn't until I had my own children that I was faced with the reality of why it was so crucial that I take better care of myself. Living a holistic lifestyle is what we've chosen to normalize.
I completed studies in Holistic Nutrition and spent countless hours studying herbalism from incredible Herbalists but always returned to the wise ones in my family in the Caribbean. Their intuitive wisdom and natural alignment with the land have inspired much of the work that I do. I blend the art and science of better living, integrating a variety of healing therapies that not only reconnects us to the planet but our own internal rhythms.
I'm so happy you're ready to take the next steps to reclaim your Joy and your magic!

"For most of my life, I’ve felt disconnected from my body. It was mine and I was living in it but I just felt lost sometimes, so when I connected with Saran a while ago and she shared with me that we can re-connect with our bodies, holistically, by understanding our cycles. My cycle. I was intrigued.
So when The Inner Seasons course was finally released I jumped at the chance. Over 4 sessions we learned all about our menstrual cycle as seasons, what that means, why we perform differently during each season, hormonally and how best to organise and prepare for work and even family responsibilities.
I’ve taken so long to send in a review because I really wanted to put into practice what Saran taught us, so far I’ve been through 3 cycles practising what I learned during Inner Seasons and I don’t think I’ve been so in synch, for the first time since I started my cycle, I’m pain-free and my flow isn’t heavy anymore either. And even more importantly I’m off the pill.
Saran has helped me recognise the connection between my biology, my pain, my heavy flow and my trauma and it is freeing.
It’s been transformational for me, for my relationship with my kids and my husband. I know it sounds like a lot from a menstrual health workshop but it is just that…a lot…there’s something special about feeling connected, about owning your body again after feeling like you lost control so many years ago.
I’m in control now.
Thank you Saran"
"Inner seasons, a blueprint for honoring your body has been such a transformational tool and course for me. I am forever grateful for the insightful information, that I have received by taking this virtual course. I decided to take the course after a consultation with Saran, in which, she told me about what the course offers and I thought this would be a great initiation into a new level of my womanhood and healing. I am elated that I jumped at this opportunity as I feel more powerful than ever. If I could give this course to every woman I know, I certainly would. It is not just the new information that intrigued me but also the enlightening reminders of what I already knew intuitively and how I may have overlooked these things. Simple things such as; resting when my body calls me to do so. This is simple yet so profound. Being raised in a matriarchal family where we are conditioned to always be going, doing for everyone and taught to feel incompetent when we take time for ourselves. The suggestion to rest is a beautiful reminder of how we cannot pour from an empty cup.
It is really a joy to know that, I get a true chance to start over each month and just like the moon I am going through phases, as such; I must be kind and compassionate with myself. Letting go of all that is old, the new and being still with my most authentic self. Our monthly cycle is so sacred and we must honor it in order to be in harmony with ourselves and the course offer much insight and suggestions into how we may do this. The herbs that the course suggests we may use to manage our flow, the journal prompts, being taught about each hormone or the lack thereof and how this affects how we experience each phase of our cycle is truly golden."
