At menarche a young woman enters her power
Throughout her menstruating years she practises her power
At menopause she becomes her power
~ Native American Saying ~
Entering into my early menopausal years, I am witness to my own transpersonal journey. More than ever this is the time to find peace and wholeness. I am no exception.
As I continue to work with my own shadow self, healing, integrating and dissolving stories that no longer serve or support me, including shedding societies beliefs around menopause, the more I feel empowered to embrace this challenging but powerful transitioning time of life, and the more trusting I become to the unfolding of my own true authentic wisdom.
It’s within this transition I have felt a deep calling to offer an opportunity where women come together to share, celebrate, and honour their rites of passage. A space to love, laugh, shed and heal unspoken wounds within a circle of trust and respect. Together we weave the wisdom of sisterhood.
It’s from this vision that WISE WOMAN RISING Bali retreat 2020 has birthed.
I would be honoured for you to join me on this sacred embodied feminine journey.
Welcome to Embodied Feminine Journeys
Wise Woman Rising
North Bali Retreat
Embodied Wise Woman’s Journey Bali Retreat 2020 is a gathering for women who have transitioned or are transitioning into moon pause, the last phase of a woman’s rite of passage. In our common language this is the menopausal transition of life.
This transition is also known as ‘the wise woman stage’ where the archetypal energy of wise crone fully emerges. The Crone is what is also referred to as the last aspect of the Triple Goddess, together with the Maiden and the Mother she represents part of the feminine circle of life.
It’s this time when a woman begins to step fully into her wisdom. The wisdom that she has gathered in her life, through all her experiences. It is within this retreat she will be given the opportunity to honour herself and this transition with other woman who have entered or are entering into this last powerful phase of the triple goddess energy.
I invite you to join the coming together in this bond of sisterhood. Together we create a safe container. Within this safe container we create a sacred circle of feminine energy where there is no division or separation.
We are all equal as one honouring the journey of ourselves and each woman present.
Over our 7 days and 6 nights we explore, embody and honour the cycles of a woman’s life reflected in the three stages of the Triple Goddess: The Maiden, the Mother and the Crone.
Together we journey through each rite of passage, sharing laughter, tears, fears, and joys. We will hold loving space as we share stories from the heart and womb. We will open to hearing and learning from each other’s wisdom without fear of judgement. We will delve in to the archetypes of maiden mother and wise woman energy dissolving old beliefs that disempower you from feeling the fullness that we all desire and deserve as we enter into our last chapter of our feminine cycle. This retreat will give you the gift and opportunity to honour yourself into this wonderful transition.
The evenings we will gather in circle to harness and express our energy through creative arts.
The mornings practice will support the triple goddess archetype we will be honouring on the day. Through yoga, dance, meditation, and other gentle practices of embodied movement, we awaken and cleanse the energies of the body.
For centuries Bali was called " Island of the Gods". And that it is. Having travelled to Bali more times than I can remember I have a deep love for the people, the culture, and the energy of the land.
Our gathering will take place at beautiful Northern Bali Oceanside Resort and spa. This exclusive location situated in a remote part of the island far removed from the hub of tourists. Adjacent is a traditional fishing village, which offers you the rare opportunity to experience the charm and magic of the real Bali that can seldom be seen anymore. You will still be able to witness Bali as it used to be.
You will see Balinese women making their daily offerings, fishermen going out to sea at night, doting the ocean with little starry lights. You will wake to the sound of the birds; fall asleep to the gentle ocean lapping on the shores.
