You’re a smart compassionate unsung shero. You’re looking for safe harbour with women like you, who are living with trauma, grief, chronic pain, Long Covid or just even the ongoing cognitive dissonance of following the science when everyone else seems to have abandoned it.

You know that even though most of society has decided COVID-19 is over, it isn’t anywhere near over.

You’re ready with an open heart and mind for something new that can light you up, help you get a better sleep and get you some relief from the ongoing unrest.

You are Indigenous or an Indigenous ally and would love to experience Indigenous teachings, medicine songs and simple mindfulness practices in a virtual women’s circle every New and Full Moon.

Let me share with you how the Picking Up the Pieces 13 Moon Program will give you the sisterhood, support and mindfulness practices (we’ll do them together!) on your journey through this Global Dark Night of the Soul.

Each season of the 13 moons of this program will give you:

Techniques to bring back your energy

Sleeplessness, ongoing stress, pain, trauma and grief can really take it out of you, so this program is designed to help you improve your energy levels and help you to recognize and release sludgy energy and emotions more quickly.

Rewired brain and body, with resilience at the ready whenever you need it

Instead of getting stuck in fight, flight or freeze, you’ll have tools at your fingertips that can bring you right back into your body, ground you and settle down anxiety before it has a chance to escalate.

A sacred toolkit to help you get through pretty much anything

Yes, that’s a bold statement and I stand by it 100%. I used what I will share with you in this program to get me through the murder trial after losing my son to gun violence and I am using it all NOW, so I know it works.

Personalized tools for relaxation, grounding, presence and self-awareness

Instead of letting stress, overwhelm or frustration take over, you’ll be able to activate your creativity, think more clearly and come up with empowering solutions quickly.

The capacity to hold space powerfully

You’ll feel a growing sense of inner strength and instead of accidentally taking on outside energies and emotions, you’ll be able to facilitate peace and alleviate fear in yourself but also in others, just with your presence alone.

Deep self-awareness and spiritual connection

Whatever your spiritual beliefs are and wherever you are on your personal growth journey, you will get to know and appreciate the true You – your body, mind, heart and spirit. 

Join Any Full Year or Season of this Program to Get Started with:

  • Be in circle with sisters just like you who care about our planet, want the best for humanity, and are ready to go deep while held in the Light.
  • Grow your ability to handle and respond to difficult situations with more grace and calm.
  • Embody what you learn, through LIVE interactive experiential classes.
  • Develop your ability to discern between your own emotions and energy, and what’s been sucked in by you empathically.
  • Release pent-up emotion in ways that are fun, freeing and fulfilling.
  • Receive energy and sound healing. Dance, sing, play, laugh, cry and take your time to grieve your losses, whether it’s the loss of a job, business, home, lifestyle, loved one or the losses underneath it all: how things used to be, might’ve been and can no longer be.

The Classes:



SEASON 1: November 15, 2023 to January 25, 2024

1. Gotta Be Me: How to Believe in Yourself Enough to Be You
It sucks to feel like you can’t just say what’s really on your mind or do what your heart and soul are hungry for or just relax into being yourself on all levels. When you’re truly being you, you feel alive, energized, powerful and free. You’re going to spend your time in this class (and whole program) creating more and more space and freedom within yourself and your relationships, simply by implementing the practices and listening to great conscious music.

2. Feels Like Sunshine: What to Do When Life’s Lemons are Too Rotten for Lemonade
This global Dark Night of the Soul just keeps on delivering, whether it’s terrifying weather, out of control fires, devastating loss of lives, racism or nasty politics. This class will be one to revisit any time you’re overwhelmed with inner or outer turmoil.

3. Everything I Need: How to Tap into Hidden Resources & Abundance
The foundation of society as we knew it is falling, which has created a lot of instability. We just don’t know what’s coming next. But we know what is here now, in the moment. You will learn and embody how to tap into the unbelievable wealth of resources you have at your fingertips, so you know the exact steps to take when you’re in crisis or having a hard time, to bring you back to a grounded state of presence and power.




SEASON 2: February 8 to April 23, 2024 

4. Breath of Life: Breathing Practices for Reclaiming Your Life Force After Loss or Trauma
All of this upheaval and the disruption of our everyday lives – and the cause of it – literally takes your breath away, and not in a good way. We will practice allowing our breath to be our teacher and our body to be the vessel. You will learn how to use the power of your breath to alleviate pain, anxiety and fear, while infusing yourself with access to higher states of consciousness.

5. Nothing but Love: The Gift of Falling Apart
You’ve been holding onto all kinds of energy, emotions, beliefs and habits that only contribute to the pain, heaviness, lack of sleep, loneliness, anxiety and frustration you’re feeling, and that can create actual physical pain as well as putting a strain on your relationship with yourself and your loved ones. We are programmed by mainstream society to “keep it together” and “just move on” when it is the opposite that can restore us to who we are. You’ll tap into and soak up that sense of reclamation, while releasing layers of grief.

6. I Love You: How to Rewire Your Brain for Resilience and Self-Compassion
You know all those awful beliefs that pop up, like I’m not good enough, I can’t do this, I don’t know what I’m doing, who am I to be doing this? When you tend to be hard on yourself, what if instead your automatic response is to give yourself love and encouragement? It’s time to fill those mind spaces with love, truth and compassion for yourself, which will allow you to give that gift to others as well.





SEASON 3: May 8 to July 19, 2024 

7. Picking Up the Pieces: How to Start Over in the Midst of Grief or Chaos
It’s unsettling to try to get a fresh start when there’s no possible way to know if your plans will be squashed yet again. This class will show you how to start picking up the pieces of your life even before this global Dark Night of the Soul has fully re-awakened us and our planet. You don’t have to wait and you don’t have to do it all at once either. I’ve been picking up the pieces of my life ever since the shock wore off after my son died, and I’ve been applying the same principles and techniques to my life is this strange planetary re-awakening. I’ll show you how.

8. Healing Song: How to Hold Space for Yourself & Loved Ones in Times of Chaos
When you deepen your ability to be present for YOU, you become more effective at being there for others. For those moments when you’re internally screaming or desperate to make someone’s pain go away, you will learn how to help you and them without interfering in their lives or overstepping your or their boundaries.

9. Grieve: Tapping into the Spiritual Medicine of Grief
We have all had losses. Whether you’ve lost a loved one, a pet, a job, a relationship, your career or the life you once had, you’ve been carrying grief. Since society has trained us to sweep grief under the rug, that grief can get stuck in the body and inform our decisions and well-being. You’ll learn how to be present with grief and tap into the medicine it has for you, without the overwhelm of feeling it all at once.




SEASON 4: August 1 to November 15, 2024

One Extra Moon Cycle of Sessions for no extra cost!

10. Missing You Memorial Song: Honouring & Connecting with Our Ancestors
Whatever or whoever you’ve lost during this global Dark Night of the Soul, we will spend time together in circle, connecting with ourselves and our ancestors. You will receive new ways to honour your memory of lost loved ones, lost lifestyle and other losses.

11. Love Is All that Matters: How to Cultivate Love in a State of Grief
It is a lie that love and fear can’t exist together. You’ll learn how to evoke feelings of love, gratitude and other feel-good emotional states, while still feeling all the other feels. It’s not about lying to yourself or fixing your emotions. You’ll be able to allow different emotional states to exist and flow simultaneously, which allows for true emotional alchemy. In other words, you can trigger more feel-good moments even when things are going sideways.

12. Life After Loss Lullaby: How to Go from Survival to Truly Living
This global Dark Night of the Soul may not be fully over for a while but you can learn to go past just surviving and into truly living, even while this chaos is still going on.

13. Living Past the Limits: Where Do We Go from Here? Holding Space for It All
I know it may seem like there are vast limitations in these strange times (because it’s true), so in our final module, you will learn how to tap into the tons of resilience you have cultivated, and expand your capacity one final time to hold space powerfully for yourself and others, and activate the potential of the present and future.


You were born into this time to help humanity and
Mother Earth re-awaken and here we are. Now is the time!

“I have got to the root of my grief, which began before my physical life on this earth by losing my twin in womb. At no one’s fault, my self belief at a VERY early age was that love comes with loss, conditioning me to live fear-based these past 4 decades.

Add on life experienced trauma and it can quickly take over. Through Brenda’s teachings I am healing these old beliefs and in turn am healing my children and even generational trauma at that. Having non-verbal twins has also been a HUGE trigger for past trauma but again, with support we keep moving forward.

Since I joined Brenda MacIntyre’s Picking Up the Pieces 13 Moon Program, my perspective on everything has shifted. Speak, heal , love and listen from the heart. You can’t go wrong.

Participating in this program gives me the feeling of belonging and connection.”

Andrea Faerberboeck

What’s in the Picking Up the Pieces Program

13 New Moon Ceremonies + 13 Full Moon Classes – all virtual – Based on the 13 Songs for Grief from the Picking Up the Pieces Album by Brenda MacIntyre, Medicine Song Woman

3-4 Moons per Season and you can join in any season


Each Full Moon Class Includes:


Each medicine song we focus on during class has its own basic teachings, which are in the eBook you will get with this program. You will take a deeper dive into select teachings and implement them via song-related mindfulness activities. You will also receive teachings straight from Spirit, through Brenda.

Traditional Story-Telling

Each class will spring out of the story of the song being performed live for you. Brenda will share stories of her lived experiences with deep grief and pain, and spiritual awakenings. You will get tips on what to avoid, how to work with the music to tap into and build your resilience, and techniques and strategies to help you get through these strange times.

Gentle Musical Activities Set to a Song

We will take the teachings into practice with the music to get them into your body memory. Creating new habits is wayyyyy easier when we get as many senses involved as possible, so we will be allowing the music and lyrics to move us on all levels so that your own body memory can serve you up exactly the inner resources you need when you need it. Worried about your physical abilities? No need. It’s important to honour your body and this program is designed with that in mind (Brenda has a leg injury and chronic pain, so if some classes, all you can move is your baby finger, you’re good to go!)

Live Music Performance

Brenda will always sing at least one medicine song for you in each class, along with a mindfulness activity. Some classes will have more than one live “performance” but you will see that Brenda’s music is more of a calling to your spirit than a performance.

I needed relief from the loneliness. In your programs I do not feel as if I am the only ultra-sensitive weirdo on the planet. I also do not want to be so shy about my singing.

Since joining the Picking Up the Pieces 13 Moon program, my voice is stronger and I am way less shy about speaking online. I feel a new sense of hopefulness and calm.

All feelings of sisterhood like this circle are very special for me (I was the only girl in my family). My favourite moments during teachings are when Brenda contacts the Grandmothers and there are Thunderbirds swooping around.

Now I feel like I am not alone. I know there are many other people who feel like me and we are powerful. I keep reminding myself that when I relax and go with the flow everything works out perfectly.

“I have been working on trying to manage stress, slow down and be present.

Being part of the Picking Up the Pieces program helps me feel much more grounded and calmer in my day to day life. I use Brenda’s music and recorded sessions to calm myself or ground between sessions.

Since I joined the program, my stress and past trauma are no longer controlling me and my responses to others. I have begun to connect with myself and my elders. This has opened up the walls I held prior.

The teachings and songs are absolutely my favorite part of the course. Brenda is amazing and I hope to work with her again. The bonus classes have been fun too.

I know this course has been the foundation I hope to work on for as long as I can. The things I have learned will help me in the future to remain true to myself.

Ashley Meade

How will this all play out?

You’ll have an experiential class and unrecorded sharing circle every Full Moon. You’ll get a group healing and energy reading session (plus a sharing circle) every New Moon, so that we can work with the energies of Grandmother Moon. After every class, you’ll have time to integrate what you’ve learned and release what no longer serves. The bonus sessions will happen in between to keep you uplifted. As you allow yourself to feel the feels and be present with whatever comes up, you will have ongoing support and “homework” that you can often do during your daily routine.

Here’s everything in a nutshell:

Six years ago, I experienced the devastating impact of burnout and a debilitating health condition that left me bedridden and in chronic pain for over a year. After trying a combination of mainstream and holistic approaches to recovery I came to understand the role that emotional suppression and unresolved grief was having on my physical symptoms. There had been a number of significant losses & disappointments in my life that I had “pushed through” and not been able to fully process and grieve. When I heard Brenda speak at a Global SheEO event, I immediately felt called to reach out and register for “Picking Up the Pieces” and am so glad that I did.

As a result of Brenda’s wisdom teachings, compassionate presence and medicine song healings, my intuition and ability to allow difficult emotions to be present (and to flow through me vs. suppressing them) has expanded in profound ways. I feel a deep sense of peace and acceptance for myself and the losses and disappointments that had kept me stuck in a cycle of rumination and exhaustion.

What has shifted the most for me has been my ability to stay grounded and curious in situations and interactions that previously activated a biological stress response.

From the way that Brenda created an inclusive environment of trust, encouraged everyone to set and share an intention, to her wisdom teachings and beautiful sound healings (where I found myself singing along or getting up to dance); I always experienced a deep sense of connection and a breakthrough in awareness which led to taking aligned action in my personal relationships and business.

I’ve learned that when we are truly ready to heal, a teacher appears. And that healing often takes place in unexpected ways when we are willing to be curious and follow the gentle nudges of spirit.

In each season of 3-4 Grandmother Moon Cycles (total of 13 Moons) – You will learn how to:

  • Grow and tap into your resilience
  • Be present for conflicting emotions popping up all at once
  • Be grounded in the midst of chaos
  • Retrain your brain and body for more resilience without overdoing it
  • Hold space for yourself and others to feel the feels
  • Speak and take action from the heart
  • Maintain your boundaries
  • Feel validated from the inside
  • Create and supercharge your own spiritual and mindfulness practices

    100% GUARANTEE

    These practices work when you work them. If you attend all the classes or watch all the replays, and implement what is shared with you, and you don’t see major improvement in how you’re handling and enjoying life during these bizarre times, you will receive a full refund.

    It’s going to be so much fun!!! The program content will be intentionally super light, fun, inspiring and uplifting, so that you can go deep into the feels and be with the heaviness, while being upheld in and by the Light. You get to rewire your brain and body for more resilience. The most soul-satisfying part? The sisterhood. You’ll be in community with like-minded, like-hearted women who get you and hold space for each other, instead of going it alone. Like I was told in a vision about 10 years ago, while the foundation is crumbling, we get to “rise up underneath it all.”

    Ready to join your sisters in sacred space to create, laugh, sing, dance, move energy and flow your way through the next 3 or 13 Moons?



    August 1st to November 15th, 2024

    “When I came into working with Brenda, my BIG hope was to find a greater connection to my native roots, take that back to my family and be a good influence on them.

    My smaller, more immediate hope was to find my inner creativity and paint (stencil) my kitchen walls. I’m not an artist or painter, and was undertaking the kitchen project with no experience!

    Once I got started on the stenciling, I couldn’t stop. There are vines and flowers and butterflies and bees, and even hummingbirds which I enjoy looking at daily with such satisfaction and joy at what I accomplished with my own hands.

    The BIG hope also manifested when I was gifted a hand drum from my cousin in Michigan who had them custom made by native craftsman. We drum at our annual reunion/powwow. Big time manifesto. The drum is a treasure.

    The bottom line is, Brenda has been part of an ongoing all encompassing discovery of getting in touch with the higher consciousness of being.

    The meditations with Brenda were phenomenal. They felt quite powerful. I still listen to them fairly frequently and love it when they come up randomly on my mp3 player. The drumming and singing was also very empowering. The power of sound and the vibration it emanates is very grounding.

    I am at a stage in my life where I am just so grateful and appreciative for every day and every breath and every little blessing that comes my way.

    I have been so very blessed. My vision was for my husband and I to find a piece of property in the country where we could camp and he could hunt. In my channeled healing session with Brenda, I was looking for strength to contain my overwhelming joy after we found the PERFECT place not more than a year later.

    It’s been almost surreal, but it is so real it’s amazing. I am still overjoyed at the reality of it all.”


    Still not sure?

    What if I've missed one or more session or season? Is it still okay to join? or

    YES! This program is designed so that while results are cumulative from practicing the practices, you can start from whichever season is open. Each circle is connected to the others but can stand on its own as a single workshop. If you join late, you will get the recordings of any missed sessions.

    What does "covid-conscious" mean?

    You follow the science and you know that covid is airborne and still active around the world. You practice community care and self-care by using layers of protection to protect you and others who may be vulnerable (N95, KN95, HEPA, CR-Box, avoiding indoor public spaces etc.). 

    Is there a payment plan?

    Please contact us here about a payment plan if paying in full is a barrier for you.

    What if I can’t do the exercises?

    You can! This program is designed by an introverted mom with social anxiety, chronic pain and PTSD. We will find ways together to honour our bodies, minds, hearts and spirits and only do things in ways that are accessible to you. I know what it’s like to avoid exercise classes because you have to modify so many movements, or because you know you’ll pay for it later in pain. I know what it’s like to feel confused, not knowing what to do (you’ll find out that’s mthe most powerful place to be). You’ll be in great company with your sisters who also won’t know what they’re doing – until you learn and embody it, which is going to feel so amazing.

    I don’t know if i can afford it.

    The investment is purposely a small fraction of the usual investment for my group programs, and I understand everyone’s situation is different. If you deeply resonate with this program, and you are budget-challenged, reach out here and we will see what we can do for a payment plan. Also, you can choose to join one or more seasons or the full year of 13 moons (starting each Fall).

    Will you be recording the sessions?

    The teaching, practices, ceremony and performances will be recorded. The sharing circles at the beginning and end of our classes will NOT be recorded, for your privacy. You will receive access to all audio and video replays. This way, if you’re in a far away time zone or you just can’t make some of the classes, you can watch or listen to them later.

    Do I need to be Indigenous to join?

    Nope. ALL who identify as covid-conscious women, 2-spirit or non-binary are welcome in this program.

    What if I’m not sure it’s the right time for me to start something new?

    It’s never been a better time to create and receive solid, simple tools and techniques to help you get through this life-changing moment in history. You will be able to download all course materials for the season(s) or 13 moon cycles you join as well, so you can watch missed sessions, re-watch your favourites, and carry the wisdom in your body for the rest of your life.

    How much work will be involved in implementing the program?

    The learning modules are only about once a month (once a Moon) so that you have time and space to insert them into your everyday life. Using the practices will fit into your life naturally and serve you all the way through this global Dark Night of the Soul and beyond. Designed by a disabled Indigenous woman to be inclusive for people who need to limit movement or energy output.

    How long before I see results?

    You will see results in our first New Moon & Welcoming Circle, every learning module and every session after that. Your results will be cumulative because you will not only be learning but implementing the practices right along with your facilitator. Even if you miss classes, you can jump right into the next one without missing a beat. If you take all 4 seasons, you will have plenty of time to build new habits, tap into your inner, outer and higher resources, and bring the teachings into body memory and the brain.

    I’m not really that spiritual. Is this program for me?

    Go ahead and try to sign up. You’ll be stopped by a final filter, to help you to know whether this program is for you or not. And if at that point, you still don’t know, I’m going to gently say right here, it’s probably not for you. If it is, you probably feel some curiosity, like you’re maybe finally in the right place,  and maybe a bit nervous. Being nervous is a green flag that you’re about to change your life in a good way (your ego-mind might try to stop you, so watch for that “other” internal voice). Our circles are very welcoming. Many who join are deeply spiritual but not all.

    If you are more science-oriented: I know you follow the science. I do too AND I follow a deeply spiritual and traditional Indigenous path. That all spills out into what and how I teach, hold space and show up in circle and it is designed to be accessible to all spiritual or non-spiritual people. We aren’t debating the reality that COVID is still here. My work is not about indoctrinating people into a religious or spiritual path. We are gathering together to remember WE are still here and we can walk our own path with the support of like-minded sisters.

    Here’s the thing. Due to my own major trauma and grief from the Before Times, I already knew how to get through a pandemic, plus the aftermath. The loneliness, times of isolation, waves of grief, anxiety, trauma, walking on eggshells and just wishing it would all STOP. The constant gaslighting from authority figures. That feeling of wondering what’s going to happen next. Feeling like you’re living in the Groundhog Day movie.

    I went through all of that from 2016-2019 after losing my son. This program contains what I learned and what Spirit gave me to help myself and other women get through sudden loss and change.

    My healing journey that began in 1996 prepared me for everything else, so now I am here to help.
