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.

The true meaning of sisterhood is a powerful force to have in our lives, it connects us to a deep well of wisdom and inspiration. You are invited to join me and a small circle of women for a 6-week series to tend to the Soul.
Using Ceremony, Ritual and the Divine Feminine Teachings as our map we will travel paths long neglected and forgotten in our busy, contemporary world. Paths that lead us to reclaim and remember the journey of the Soul.
Ceremony, Ritual and Sacred Symbols have been used for thousands of years to invoke and communicate with the Mystery, it awakens our personal power and brings a deeper meaning to our lives. Sharing our wisdom we will cultivate a deeper connection to nature, while learning to keep our minds and hearts open. During this series you will have plenty of time to listen more deeply and be guided by your own spirit, inner body wisdom and knowing We will dive into our inner wisdom and support each other to reclaim and weave the mystery and magic back into everyday life.
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.
