CURRENTLY SCHEDULED RETREATS FOR 2015:
~ AQUA FEMINA ~
A 3-DAY WOMEN'S RESTORATION RETREAT AT HARBIN HOT SPRINGS
SEPTEMBER 11TH - 13TH, 2015
Uniting Water Medicine and Deep Feminine Sovereignty Practices
WHEN: Friday, September 11th - Sunday, September 13th
WHO: Limited to 13 Women
COST: $455, discounted early registration applies until August 1st - $405, with $150 deposit and extended payment plans available.
One of the reasons I love both deep feminine wisdom practices and water medicine is that both of these bodies of work provide an unparalleled container in which I see women blossom into their fullness with the grace and elegance of a Rose, and sit down into their power with the loving, unequivocal authority of a natural born Queen.
This retreat is an offering I've created in the image of what I see women (and myself!) most deeply yearning for - extended, slow and luxurious time to re-source what is true for us, from the indwelling and incorruptible well of unique feminine essence within. AquaFemina will be an opportunity to slow time, enter the subtle, saturate in the luminescence of the moon and one another, and enter sanctuary far from the influence of others, culture, perceived responsibilities or limitations, and the general pressure and rhythms of our daily lives.
The retreat will unfold within the exquisite natural potency, land, and waters of Harbin Hot Springs (we have a pool reserved all to ourselves, all weekend!) and within a gently ritualized, but spacious facilitation that will allow each woman to benefit from the supportive sisterhood, while simultaneously dropping fully into the personal journey that is most alive, relevant, and meaningful to her.
Schedule and more info is below, but the gorgeous artwork above by Chiara Forsini pretty much conveys what we'll be up to :)
SEPTEMBER 11TH - 13TH: ARRIVE FRIDAY ANY TIME AFTER NOON
Friday Eve - Gathering ritual, entering Sanctuary, creating safety and group field, naming intention, then progressing through purifying gates to the water for an evening of release and attunement to Feminine Essence in the water, under the moonlight
Saturday Morn - Womb Clearing, Ovarian Fire cultivation, and dropping into the Womb of Silence for guidance from deep Feminine soul
Saturday Afternoon - Surrender into Grace, in our private warm pool
Saturday Evening - Integrational temple prayer dance, with optional return to the waters for late night moon bathing
Sunday Morning - Deepening Surrender into Grace, holding and being held in our private warm pool
Sunday early afternoon - Closure and progression back through gates, solidifying graces received, insights and choices for moving forward with even greater alignment, nourishment, and deep feminine potency
Sunday until evening - Open pool (we have it to ourselves till nighttime) or Harbin time
Sunday night - Optional, but recommended, extra night camping together at Harbin and unwinding Monday, having fun, if desired (not included in tuition, I think it's about $35 -55 for the camping fee).
Harbin facilities - Harbin has an onsite natural foods market, restaurant, additional and more private/luxurious rooms, a secret waterfall, sauna, steamroom, hot and cold plunges, huge swimming pool......even a movie theater!

Our accommodations - We have a lodge bordering the ceremonial meadows, with big kitchen, group space, and lots of tent camping/deck space. We'll be bringing our own food, making our own meals, separately or together if desired, and sleeping can happen outside or inside, as you wish, and as weather suggests.
If your body and soul are calling for deep nourishment, by all means follow the call! This retreat is relaxed, seamless, fun, elegant and profound.
