Womb of Light

Post Abortion Healing Retreat

with Mela Mariposa & Eva Bellas

Post Abortion Healing Retreat

Dear woman, sister, mother, daughter. You are invited to join a circle of women, to heal, connect, pray, forgive and hold space for yourself and your heart.

With sacred practices and rituals, you will get the possibility to consciously open up to honour, accept  and integrate a decision you once made in your life.

A full weekend dedicated to liberation, forgiveness, peace, healing & reconnection.

We will spend a weekend in a beautiful place called Madreselva- Terras de Cura, in Azoia, Sintra. This place is close to Cabo da Roca, the most western point of Europe, where the winds meet. Madreselva, has hosted many beautiful ceremonies before, the place offers a big yurt, where we will be breathing together, a tipi and a sweatlodge.


Breathwork Ceremony

Breathwork uses a simple technique, called “conscious connected breath”, a profound technique that deeply supports the clearing away of old energies, conditioning, negative thoughts/patterns and emotions.
It helps us to open up the doors for new possibilities and a greater consciousness. If done properly it is a “gateway” to your inside world, to truly see who you are with all layers of a human being, emotionally, physically and energetically. And yet the outcome is always a surprise, as we are all individuals caring different stories and backgrounds. The main result is pure presence & awareness, which eventually leads us into a fuller acceptance of what is.


Earth child ritual, integration, sharing, singing and nourishing our body

Together we will create a powerful ritual to honour our unborn children and create space for them to integrate them in our energetic family system.

We will also  dedicate a good amount of time for integration and sharing. Being together in nature, with sisters and being in a circle is how we create union and connection. It is the place where we can be seen, where we can let go of our masks, where we can step safely into vulnerability.

Before entering into the sweatlodge we unite our voice and we bring our prayers to the sky.

Temazcal (Sweatlodge)

Temazcal is a ceremony of purification, cleansing, rebirth and communion, one of the first practices that humans received from the spiritual world to reconnect us intimately with Creation. It represents the womb of mother earth.

Therefore, it is an opportunity to review our place as caretakers of life, nurture and cultivate the path in beauty and harmony with nature and recognize that we are all family.

Let's stop our routine, connect deeply with Mother Earth and listen to our heart, our inner voice.

Recreated in the similarity with the woman's womb, which is the same womb as Mother Earth, Temazcal is a ceremony where the same conditions that exist in the creation of Life are provided: Darkness, Heat, Humidity and recognition of the 4 elements (Fire, Air , Water and Earth)
