What’s Possible In This Retreat
We will be performing a number of mystical rituals to establish the link with the divine feminine power.
MYSTICAL & DEVOTIONAL DANCE
It is more than just any dance, it is a conscious movement practice, movement that heals, that nourishes the feminine, that helps us cultivate self love and confidence. Experience the ancient art of dance as a form of moving prayer, self-expression, discovery, and connection to your own inherent mystery. Explore what it means to be “danced from within” by enjoying freestyle movement, belly dance techniques to help unravel the sensuality and wisdom of the body.
Channel your high priestess through sacred rituals and ceremonies to call in goddesses from Indian Tantra and Tibetan Buddhism. Tara, the deity of love, compassion, and healing, and Lakshmi, goddess of fortune and abundance, Saraswati, the Goddess of wisdom and arts, Dhurga, the Goddess that personifies the woman warrior, Khali, the Goddess that destroy the faked shapes of human expressions, will inspire you to manifest their divine qualities in your own being.
Embodying this magnificent archetype, that deep down we all are longing to express. Learn how to stay in your own power, set up boundaries and learn to say no.
THE POWER OF THE SACRED WOMEN’S CIRCLE
When women gather in sacred space magic happens. We come into rhythm with nature’s cycles and deep feminine wisdom. We discover and open to the tribal sisterhood of support we’ve longed for. And from there we find grace which heals and transforms as well as gives us strength to shed unwanted layers so that we can live more deeply, authentically and soulfully.
Every participant is a special member of the women’s circle where we embrace each other in the totality of who we are. We step away from competition and judgment between women. We cultivate sisterhood. We make friendships for life. Together wee grow and transform. The circle holds us as we dive deeper.
