Ritual bathing is a deeply relaxing and spiritual experience. It calls to our ancient roots of women bathing together under the moon. The Ceremony begins with lighting a candle of intention/prayer for the Ceremony. The bathing consists of three rounds in the the sauna (body/mind/soul). In the sauna we chant, sing and send blessings with every pour on the hot stones and every drop of sweat. In between we enjoy a refreshing cold shower and rest in the hot tub or just sit under the moon. We nourish and renew the whole self with healing salt and sugar scrubs, hair oil and conditioner, all made from natural ingredients with pure essential oils. We drink healing waters with herbs and flower essences that help us to release what needs to be released and cleanse from the inside out. Ritual Bathing is a time for you to relax, focus on your own self care and allow the Soul to shine through, all in sacred time, in a safe place, in the company of supportive women.
Living a Spiritual Life is a universal quest and a deeply personal experience. Each woman must explore her own inner landscape to find and own her unique pathways to inner wisdom and living a meaningful life. Using the Divine Feminine Teachings as our inspiration we gather to reclaim the Sacred in everyday Life through Ceremony, Ritual and Sacred Tools.
Sacred Tools are a Spiritual Technology, that have been used for thousands of years, to invoke and communicate with the Divine, they are a part of the Souls language. Using the Sacred Tools as portals, we will be transported to the Souls landscape, where you will have plenty of time to listen more deeply and be guided by your own inner body wisdom and knowing. Gathering in real time with other wise women connects us to a deep well of wisdom, inspiration and magic. The Tools used are the Altar, Vessel (body), Voice, and Talking/Listening Staff.
On a Practical level you will learn how to bring more balance and presence into everyday busy life, by tending to the Soul, and gaining tools of transformation.
To bring the Sacred into everyday life is to take the time to enter a vast and infinitely mysterious inner landscape, following paths long neglected and forgotten in our busy, contemporary world. Entrance into the territory of the Sacred is through the portal of the unknown, the realm of Mystery and Awe.
One must have the courage to relinquish knowing and be open to trusting what cannot be seen or touched, what can only be sensed and felt. In this training you will learn basic, simple and yet profound tools to help you on your journey to your authentic Self. Anxiety, depression, fears, worry and anger are the calls for healing, and the discontent longings for wholeness and connection. It is through these feelings; we call to the Scared, to bring us back to living in presence, faith, trust and love.
The Sacred container for this training is Ceremony and the teachers are Sacred tools. Sacred tools are a universal spiritual technology, which has been used for thousands of years, to invoke and communicate with the Divine; they are a part of the Souls language. Using the Sacred Tools as portals, you will be transported to your inner Divinity, where you will have plenty of time to listen more deeply and be guided by your own inner body wisdom and knowing. We will work with 13 Sacred Tools one for each moon cycle.
The 13 Sacred Tools for the first year are ordered in a way that builds upon each other, the result is knowing your self, understanding your patterns and strengths, transforming all obstacles to deep connections within and without. The 13 sacred tools we will work with are: the altar, the vessel, the voice, the drum, the mask, the mirror, earth, water, fire, air, minerals, energy body, and the wheel of Life.
One Saturday a month, on the week of the new moon, we will meet for a day of retreat and Ceremony, to receive inner and outer teachings, and to activate each tool. We will meet from 1- 6 and conclude with a potluck dinner.
Each week you will receive an email with a short lesson and inspiration on how to go more deeply into using the tool, in your own unique way, for healing and self-understanding.
All our medicines come from plants. Most of our food comes from plants. The beauty around us comes from plants. It is a magical world to enter the realm of plants, trees, and flowers. In this weekend retreat we will spend time with the plants in the garden, we will look at them, draw them, write about them, ingest them and do Ceremony with them. There are many ways to work with plant medicine, during our weekend together we will drink teas, work with essential oils, flower essences, and the plants themselves.
The purpose of the weekend is to just unwind, relax, disconnect and reconnect to the natural world. The weekend will include a ritual bathing, delicious fresh foods from the farmer market, mixing and creating healing potions, journeying to the plant world, and just sitting with plants. A restorative, rejuvenating, relaxing weekend for women to just be and play and co create with Nature. Weekend includes a Ritual Bathing.
