The Goddess Project (Geelong)



Determined to empower the feminine voice, two filmmakers packed their lives into a school bus and hit the road for what became the most transformative adventure of their lives.

Through powerful conversations with over 100 women from different walks of life, The Goddess Project gives an intimate look into the collective experience that many women face today.

Some of the topics covered in the film are self-discovery, travel, menstruation, sisterhood, the media & its influence, healing from trauma & abuse, creativity, sustainability and pursuing your dreams.

Loretta Hart has helped hundreds of busy, overwhelmed and awesome chicks find their happy within the mess of life. Not having to wait until they are on holidays or when things get going in their business - now in the midst of the whirlwind that life can be. What Loretta has learnt through research, study, self exploration and working with women to help them move towards a life of joy, being present, and rolling with whatever life brings, is that happiness is an inside job. But breaking through to it can feel daunting, overwhelming and sometimes unclear on how to get started.
Loretta's methods of improving mindset, developing usable tools and strategies, values work and energy and emotional clearing are all aimed at empowering women to understand themselves and continue to live a life they can look back on and be proud.

It’s Loretta's aim to guide women to connect to themselves more fully so that then they can be the person they want to be. Happy, calm, present, wise, reasoned, balanced and down right awesome and then this positive energy then flows to their families and communities, rippling out globally.

"I am a Melbourne-based Birth Doula and Relationship Coach for Parents, and trained in birth support, spiritual midwifery and parenthood transitions. I provide support to women and their partners through the incredibly powerful experiences of Birth and Parenthood. These experiences are rites of passages where we have the chance to expand ourselves and elevate our society. My work serves to bridge the gap between the care that women and partners are given and the care that they all need to best honour and embrace the experience of creating and caring for the next generation. My role as wife and mother of two will always be my proudest work for these very reasons."
