Women's Sacred Retreat {October 12-15, 2017}

WOMEN'S SACRED RETREAT

Release, Rejuvenate, Reclaim

Welcome to a women's 4 day retreat at the Sacred Mountain Lavender Farm on Saltspring Island. We offer rituals designed for you to listen to the whisperings of your heart; to tune into the rhythm of your womb; and to nurture the soul within. Together we release, rejuvenate, and reclaim. 

We undress patriarchy. We are tired of the cultural messages embedded in our blood that keep us from being fully self expressed, that have us believing we are too much or not enough, that encourage us to push down our emotions, that subtly ask us to be more and give more. We are shedding beliefs systems that praise love and joy but demonize anger and grief. We practice authenticity and encourage self love to accept both the light and the dark.

We return to rituals that we know women have been practicing for lifetimes, and we re-remember our cells, ourselves, our fire, the wisdom waters of our womb, the mystical power of our bodies and their primitive connection to the earth. We commune in Circle using the elements of nature to be nourished by the Great Mother Earth and to dance with the divine magic of the Sky-Moon-and-the-Stars to realign with our soul's true purpose. We are brave warriors, wild, and wise.

The brillant Kari Mathieson, Saltspring Island local chef, will be preparing vegetarian meals to nourish your body temple. The Sacred Mountain Lavender Farm offers an outdoor sauna and shower for your enjoyment, along with cozy accommodations, and an inviting communal space for relaxing. 

In this retreat, we offer sacred space to expose, nurture, deepen, soften, and ground. We will meditate, release emotions, flow through yoga, connect with the divine feminine, listen to our sisters, heal, sing, dispel patterns no longer servings us, create intentions, purify, practice presence, and uncover our hearts true desires. 
Come step into the sacred.

We offer a primitive ritual for ancestral healing. Women are invited to connect their sacred sex with the earth using the waters of the living womb to end the harm of patriarchy. This is a powerful practice that encourages deep healing on a cellular and spiritual level.

Scarlet is passionate about ending power cycles that encourage women to suppress, avoid, accommodate, deny, act from guilt, and to forfeit the heart's desires. She has been searching for and healing the wounds within her for 15 years. She offers her 10 years of experience as a Counsellor trained in anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, feminist practice to support women in re-remembering their authentic self, connecting with their sacred gifts, and releasing all energies that no longer serve the spirit. She has professionally taught as a dancer, yogi, and fitness instructor since 2008. She offers guided movement to support the body in emotional regulation and healing the sacred temple. 

Jayde has been dedicated to empowering girls and women for the past 15 years through counselling, activism, research, fundraising, teaching, and therapeutic yoga. She believes deeply in the healing of connection, the sacredness of ritual, and the certainty that we all are interconnected divine beings. Jayde has mastered the art of holding space and is honoured to keep sacred the hundreds of vulnerable moments and stories that have been shared with her as a Counsellor and group facilitator. Jayde brings her gentle spirit, empathic gifts, open heart, and genuine unconditionally loving witness, by seeing and hearing every woman in circle. 

We recognize that women are hungry for more: to be truly empowered and to feel free, whole, and ALIVE! Now more than ever, we need to yell, cry, dance, sing, share, laugh, release, and connect, together! We are honoured to facilitate this journey in re-remembering. You are held, you are seen, you are loved and you are celebrated.

Celebrate the Sacred Workshop

This workshop has been coming into existence for over a year. But last night, Jayde and I met to birth this offering. It was a blessed experience. The Goddess spoke and revealed the journey.

As many of you have already experienced, Jayde is a healer that generates the sacred. She is the raw and real expression of the emotional realm. She is the priestess that births sacred space. She is honesty, she is trust and she is light.

Scarlet points the way to release, unveil, and express She's committed to practicing from presence and listening for wisdom from her womb. She trusts her powers as an intuitive guide to create magic and connect women within ceremony. 

When Jayde and Scarlet collaborate, a space for sacred ritual is birthed. In union, we are the light and the dark. The “whole” is expressed through the dance of our two vessels. 

Our intention is to offer this wholeness to all our sisters. We will do everything we know to move aside, to allow these vessels to practice the teachings of the Goddess and share these with you.

And every one of you will show up perfectly. Not as a mother, or a daughter, not as a woman, not as a teacher, not as a student, just as the Goddess you are. You don’t need to do anything, you don’t have to try to be something, or to not be something, just in showing up, the circle will be cast and the magic of the whole will be birthed.

We completed trust in this process. That voice in your heart is craving, begging, to be connected to your sisters, to Mother Earth and to the wisdom of the Goddess. You may experience this magic alive and well day to day, it may have been a fleeting moment in time, or it might be something you sense is real but have yet to feel. Together we will experience this magic. We will see and feel and know the power of the Goddess.

Jayde and I will come with our hearts wide open ready to welcome you with love. You will be seen, celebrated and connected to tribe.

We bow to and honour the priestess that is you. May we be united through magic. Blessed be.
