This retreat takes place over Mother’s Day Weekend in the US. You are invited to invoke the Wise, Wild and Free mother inside yourself and recognize Her presence all around us.WISE- Honor and embody the wisdom of the mother as you nourish yourself with healing movement, meals, time in nature and kindhearted community connection.WILD- Awaken the intuitive knowing of the mother to shake off the residue of what no longer serves you as you walk your path with more aliveness.FREE- Receive the encouragement of the mother to feel safe enough to bring more of what is true to you and truly you to your life.This is a healing journey in every direction. Past, present and future. Offer compassion to yourself and others on the journey. Hold for harmony. Activate your depth of courage. Be curious about the patterns perpetuating through time and space. Illuminate the possibilities of pleasure. Honor the memory of interconnection. Call on practices of peace. Listen to your inner guidance on the journey of desire, patience, right timing and trust. Attune to the promise of prosperity. Enter each now moment. Notice if you are open to receive the support that is all around as you take your next step.We will make time to honor the Mother Consciousness in the Water, acknowledging each and every human being arrives in this world through a watery womb. We’ll look up at Grandmother moon, whose phases influence the ocean tides and perhaps even the water within us. This retreat takes place between two eclipses, a sacred time for releasing and re-routing. Place offerings on the altar of Mother Earth. Extend the reverence of your heart to the community of people gathering together. Explore any questions you are holding in your life and see if you are able to receive the master teachings from the healing power of nature all around you.This retreat is offered from the viewpoint that the medicine of the moment is a deepening of connection to self, body, earth, nature, spirit and one another. Everything offered will be with the intention to nourish yourself in each present moment with healthy food, daily Qoya Inspired Movement Sessions, rituals and kind hearted connections in community.This program is for women, people who identify as women, or as non-binary.
