About the Retreat:
Deep Restorative Rest
As part of the healing process for grief and trauma, it is important that rest and relaxation are given top priority. This allows our body to move into a state of equilibrium where true embodied healing can begin.
All our workshops and retreats allow generous time for deep restorative rest and integration through somatic techniques that help the body ‘thaw’ and relaxation exercises.
Nurturing and Nourishment
For many women, we are the nurturers and nourishes. In our workshops and retreats, we turn the tables and nurture and nourish you.
All the food is lovingly prepared by with a specifically designed menu that supports your healing process.
All participants will also enjoy a 120 minute healing spa circuit at Gymea’s incredible facilities that includes a steam room, outdoor spa and plunge pool to support your beautiful nervous system.
Rituals and Ceremonies
Rituals and ceremonies are sadly lacking in many areas of our Western culture, despite the fact that they are a key component of the healing process for many cultures and societies around the world.
During our time together you will have the opportunity to participate in meaningful rituals that help us connect to unconscious aspects of ourselves as well as our ancestors and our Spirit Babies. These ceremonies allow our pain to have a voice, which in turn facilitates our healing process.
Sister Circle Sharing
Sharing our stories and being witnessed with love by our women folk is what we call ‘sister medicine’. It is a key ingredient in our healing process.
Every workshop and retreat is conducted in Circle where you are supported to share what feels comfortable for you about your journey through grief.
It is always astounding how much shame and guilt can be lifted when we realise that we are not alone in our experiences.
Together we explore the grieving process from a psychological perspective as well as a shamanic perspective. We share information about how unexpressed grief can cause physical and emotional health issues and how important it is that the journey of grieving is understood from a framework that allows for healing and integration.
Tools for Thriving
Importantly, we want you to leave our workshops and retreats with more peace in your heart and a sense of possibility.
We share information on strategies for self-care and tools for managing your healing process. It is important to us that you are able to continue your journey with a solid understanding of what is occurring for you on all levels – mind, body and spirit, as well as strategies for continued restoration.
