Maiden Mother Crone Retreat

May 19, 12:00 pm - May 21, 2:00 pm

Gentrification and modernity have institutionalised our way of living in the West. As a result of modernity, our sociocultural adaptation has caused a generalisation or even tabooing of events in life that traditionally instigated initiation. The transformative role of initiation, is a requisite for the growth and evolution of the human mythology and psyche. As women, the lack of conscious initiation into, and the embodiment of, archetypal influences that inform our feminine essence, can leave us feeling lost and severed from the sense of unity and sisterhood we so deeply know is meant to be there for us in life. Initiations, such as the celebration of menarche, the honouring of the sense of ‘loss mixed with joy’ women undoubtedly feel before the act of marriage, the death of identity after child rearing, and the celebration of menopause, to name a few, are crucial milestones for the welfare of the feminine that need to be recognised.

This retreat offers an opportunity to travel through the main archetypal influences of the feminine essence, and to get a deeper understanding of these influences and where oneself may be at, in terms of initiation and or the lack of it. In this retreat you will be taken through processes that will help you connect with the feminine, such as prayers and reciprocity with Earth Mother, connecting with water, wreath making, Yoga, African drumming, story telling, Cacao Ceremony, Sound Healing and the Rite of the Womb. The Rite of the Womb is a shamanic energy transmission, that helps women connect with their womb, their own suffering, and that of their matriarchal ancestral lineage. This Rite, offers the opportunity to do the sacred work of ancestral healing womb to womb, generations back, and to liberate oneself from limiting belief patterns and suffering. The Rite of the Womb is something participants will take with them home, and continue to work with for the following thirteen months. This is very sacred work. Once initiated, participants can themselves pass on the transmission to others.

In this retreat you will bond and make connections with the sisterhood who share this beautiful Earth and lifetime with you. As ongoing support in this journey, retreat goers are also invited to join our private Maiden Mother Crone forum on WhatsApp.
