Embracing the Light

Dance into the expansive light of this first full moon of the year. This is a time of planting new seeds and empowering yourintentions to grow in abundance and radiant light.

This retreat will take place on the waxing Gibbous moon cycle. It is a perfect moment to welcome in the New Year with new light and intention and to fully bring into light that which you wish to create and manifest in abundance and love. This is a time to initiate new beginnings. Through visualisation, intention and nurturing thought patterns you come to realise that you are the creator of your reality and can weave into reality the life of your dreams.  This retreat will end with a golden seal of light on the first full moon penumbral eclipse of the year on the 10th of January.

Embrace the unconditional nurturing Mother Goddess and allow her healing powers to fill you with warmth, light and inspiration. Open your heart in gratitude and prepare yourself to receive and obtain your true hearts desire.

Call upon the great mother from within, ever loving and ever giving, to shower you in her light. Open your senses up to gain clarity and be able to focus on your desires.

You will have a unique opportunity to turn into your connection to the heart of Mother Earth, to the Divine Feminine and to yourself.

You will learn about the wheel of life, the 4 directions and the elements. Discover where you are currently positioned on the compass, gain clarity on how to move and flow freely round the wheel of life and become one with all of existence.

This is an empowering and transformational journey that enables you to take the control back of your, thoughts, actions and life. Fill and open your heart in gratitude and be ready to receive abundant blessings.

DURING EACH RETREAT YOU WILL CONNECT TO THE SPIRIT OF THE LAND, TO YOUR TEACHERS AND TO YOUR GUIDES THROUGH A DAILY PRACTICE AND DISCIPLINE OF:

YOGIC DANCE

. In this practice we connect our breath, body, emotion, mind and soul to the earths skin, to the elements with and around us, and to the present moment. Every movement, gesture and sound has an energetic force and vibration that we are able to move, harmonise, enhance and expand.

Our hearts open and we become one with everything. The core root to this practice focuses on harmonising the flow of energy throughout the body with:

  • MINDFUL      MOVEMENT
  • DANCE
  • RHYTHM
  • CONSCIOUS      BREATH WORK/ PRANAYAMA
  • SOUND      AND VOICE WORK
  • POSTURE
  • MUDRAS
  • GUIDED      VISUALISATIONS
  • MEDITATION

AWAKEN THE SACRED DIVINE FEMININE FROM WITHIN AND MANIFEST THE DANCE OF YOUR SOUL IN THE NOW. 

On the retreat we will also enjoy sacred spaces of:

MEDICINE WALKS

To be able to connect with nature it is important to be in nature so spending time alone to reflect, connect and find a vision or healing will be incorporated into the retreat. Each medicine walk will have a specific intention for you to take out onto the spirit of the land and on your return there will be a space within which the community will witness your journey and story.

CEREMONY AND RITUAL

Ceremony has been used since the beginning of time in all cultures across the globe to mark honour and celebrate life, death, transitions, cycles and seasons. Through ceremony we connect to these vital moments and also honour and give thanks to the Earth, the Elements, Mother Nature and the landscape that holds us.

Ceremony and ritual creates a space within which we are able to share our stories together. Through the skills of deep listening applied within this space we strengthen our sense of compassion and understanding. A unified collective heart consciousness beautifully unfolds to reside within us and shine outwardly.

EARTH AND SOUL HEALING

Throughout the week we will connect to the energy that feeds, nourishes, sustains and regenerates all life forms on this amazing planet, through Sound, Chanting, Meditation, Conscious Touch and Imagery.

CREATIVE ARTS

Through art making, not only do we tap into our creative force but also we discover a symbolic medium through which we are able to express and manifest our emotions and tell our stories. We learn new skills and are able to tap into a metaphorical language that leads us to these infinite depths of artistic communication and creativity. On this retreat we will mould and create tools that honour the elements, forming part of our sacred altar.
