Womb of Light
18th -19th of March
Healing Retreat for Women
Womb Healing Retreat
Dear woman, sister, mother, daughter. You are invited to join a circle of women, to heal, connect, pray, forgive, accept, release and hold space for yourself, your heart and your womb.
With sacred practices and rituals specially designed for wom(b)en, you will get the possibility to consciously open up, and be held in a circle of sisters, for any kind of healing you may need right now.
Most traumas happen in disconnection, in order to truly heal we need a save container through deep connection!
A weekend dedicated to liberation, acceptance, love, peace, healing & reconnection.
This weekend is there to give you space, to be held, to get nourished and to connect in a circle of sisters.
We will have deep sharing circles, and nourishing body practises for our womb energy, and hold space for each other, for healing purposes and empowering the woman that you are.
All women are welcome.
If you want to just be in a circle of women, if you need empowerment or if you are looking for deep nourishment/healing. Maybe you need to be held by a circle of women, after a pregnancy loss or after an abortion. Maybe you are going through a breakup or a difficult time in your relationship. Or maybe as a mother you just need some time to get back to yourself.
We will take care of each other, sing, pray, breathe and sweat in the womb of mother earth. It shall be a space to express openly about anything you experience right now, so you can receive healing through connection with sisters.
Madre Selva, Azoia, Sintra
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 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.
Ritual, integration, sharing, singing and nourishing our body
Together we will create a powerful ritual for your individual healing space, so you can full honour where you are right now.
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 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)
You will be guided by:
