Womens Retreats in Nature

Winter Retreat 13th ~ 18th November 2016

Reclaiming your Inner Goddess
An opportunity to rest and recharge body, mind and soul. To meet other women and gain support by sharing and living together in community for 5 days and 5 nights.
Winter is the time to go within, time to pause and reflect and to begin to dream into our ideas and hopes for the year ahead.
This retreat is open for up to 8 women, we will be staying at Lower Northcott a stunning Georgian farmhouse, set on a working farm at Northcott and within walking distance of the beautiful North Cornish beach of Northcott Mouth. With breathtaking views throughout, The house has nine bedrooms and will allow each woman the privacy of her own room - these will be allocated on a first come first served basis - some will be ensuite, some will have double, twin or single beds with shared bathrooms.There are two lounges, wood-burning stoves and a large kitchen and dining room. Outside we have access to large informal gardens with two hot tubs offering views across to the sea.

Women intuitively understand one another. We share many similar life experiences so we naturally empathise with each other. When on retreat together, this bond becomes so clear and its richness so healing. We come together as strangers and leave as sisters.

During the retreat we will be undertaking guided meditations and shamanic journeying to deepen our connection to the goddess aspects of ourselves. We will be working with some of my bespoke moon goddess pipes and tuning forks to promote relaxation and self healing. And we will stir the goddess within and express her creatively through crafting projects, colouring and journaling. There will be time to rest and to be alone both indoors and outs, to deepen our connection to nature and integrate the work we will be doing for ourselves and for the land.
In solitude we find the space to reconnect to ourselves, to rest, to heal and to hold those in retreat with us in a place of heart centred support.
There will be the opportunity to have healing sessions on my Amethyst Biomat time permitting.
We will also be spending some time in circle working in the "Way of Council".
The ancient form of council embraces the sacred in all life and is a spiritual practice that moves one to a compassionate deeper level of communicating and being. Council is a way of speaking and of listening from the heart and over the three days you will receive a brief introduction to this form.
There will be some group evening activities, relaxation sessions, fireside stories, gentle drumming laughter and a few magical surprises.
