We invite you … Divine Woman. Join your soul sisterhood as we gather in a week long ceremonial space that will activate your embodied sacred feminine & dissolve what is no longer serving you.
We will be sharing aspects of Tantra - Kundalini Yoga - Shakti Yoga - Dance - Sacred Sexuality - & - Ancient Temple Rituals, to help you to fully embody the Sacred Feminine Archetypes through a direct embodied experience of the traditional Tantric Goddesses (deities). Like all deities, they represent aspects of the divine mind & are not something external you give away power to, but rather activate within you. These qualities are already alive within you, we are simply creating the space to awaken & embody them.... to ultimately come to inner balance. Here we find the source of our authentic embodied power, self love & self expression.
After 7 days in paradise, journeying with your Sisterhood, you will….
+ Slow down & reconnect to your feminine feeling centre.
+ Activate your fire, radiance & authentic expression.
+ Embody your sacred sexuality, reclaiming your birth right to pleasure.
+ Heal any unresolved wounds around the feminine, mother & sisterhood.
+ Unwaveringly trust your feminine intuition & womb wisdom.
+ Have the courage to begin following your passions & living your life in alignment with your deepest soul desires.
+ Deepen your capacity to be authentic, set your boundaries & go after what you want & need.
+ Return to happiness & peace in every day living, through feeling balanced & integrated.
+ Awaken your creative potential & trust it ruthlessly.
+ Return to your state of Leela, Divine Play. Where the magic happens….

From here we enter into a state of no mind and awaken our creative centre as we explore embodying the Kali energy through a dynamic Kali meditation, combining dance, breathe, and sound. This practice is based on the Osho Dynamic meditation, whereby we empty out the mind through emotional catharsis and from here enter the zero state, where Kali resides. The void of death and rebirth. We will explore our wildness, we will romance our shadows, and reclaim our power through facing our demons, all that is binding us to keep us playing small. We will activate our fire, our raw primal sex energy through embodied dance to deep dark beats.
Enter the void of the Womb. This session, we will journey into the darkness in order to birth more light.

A safe practice combining breathe, sound, movement and awareness.
Rebirth and Blood Ritual. Our Menstrual blood holds the shamanic power of death and rebirth. Menstrual blood holds the element of sexual fire, so in reverence to the Kali element we incorporate the element of fire in our ritual. Every month we bleed, we shed what no longer serves our sacred soul and what is deeply stored in our subconscious conditioned mind. Menstrual blood holds immense power as our creative seed potential, so this ritual we will give reverence to the sacred blood and the womb as our guiding feminine oracle. To restore any lost parts of our feminine psyche and offer this healing on behalf of the collective.

The mystical woman, is the inner mystic in us all. The woman who can see beyond the illusions of the mundane world & truly believes, embodies & practices magic every day.

Her passion for her women’s work lies in empowering women back to self love; honouring of the natural cycles of life, awakening their creativity, and breaking down sexual & societal conditioning of the mind.
