Join us in the vibrant forest of Brazil to connect with the wisdom of nature as we journey through the gateways of the Medicine Wheel, deepening in our understanding of the elements and the energies this sacred wheel holds. Beginning on the Full Moon, this retreat will support the growth of our relationship to our feminine essence, in all its forms, and to the innate wisdom which lives inside of us.
Each day will be spent honoring and connecting with a different element and direction of the Medicine Wheel, and exploring intuitively, the way each gateway opens itself and guides us to receive its gifts; the airs bringing inspiration and clarity, fire helping us to transform what may not serve us, the water offering a nourishing reflection and the Earth reminding us of our ancestors’ wisdom. The fifth gateway of this journey will call in the heart of the stars, the heart of the earth and our inner heart, as we align ourselves with this axis so we may stand tall in our power and embody our truth in our femininity.
During this five-day journey, we will dive into a variety of offerings which support the body, mind and spirit in the awakening and flowering of the whole of our being. This will include:
-elemental wisdom + chakra balancing
-aligning with the elements through herbal remedies
-altar creation + sweatlodge
-full moon circle + intuitive astrology
-teachings of the moon + sacred moontime (menstruation)
-cacao ceremony + sound healing
-song circle + ecstatic dance
-creative writing + journaling
-yoga + meditation
In addition to these offerings, there will be free time each day which can be enjoyed relaxing, walking the forest trail and swimming in the waterfall. Private sessions will be available as well, with options of Deep Release Massage, Acupressure Foot Massage, personal Yoga sessions, Dream Journeys, Ceremonial hand-poked Tattoo, Astrology Readings and Intuitive Hair Cutting.
Coming from different lineages and backgrounds, Melinda, Winter and Freya share their common connection, as carriers of the sacred obsidian pipe; a symbol of their commitment and dedication to the Moon Dance and to the responsibility of sharing the teachings of the Moon, with all women. It is from this work, and with the support of their teachers and elders, that this retreat is inspired -to hold a space where women can come for healing, transformation and awakening.
