Women can be complex and fascinating, and often in their journey through life they lose themselves in the many roles they play.
been conditioned, consciously or unconsciously, through our slowly disintegrating male-dominated world to place themselves last in the order of importance. And it’s not just conditioning… apparently, we can blame the oestrogen for our tendency to over care for those around us.
We have also been conditioned to be nice, to be quiet, to be thoughtful and considerate of others. Sadly, we do this so well, we often forget to care for ourselves.
Sometimes when we do, we’re flooded with guilt and so we avoid doing it and, over time, we lose our spark and the shine of our spirit. We then try to fill our empty cups with stuff, or behaviours – yes doom scrolling counts here –that unfortunately empty us even more. Our ego voice works overtime in the game of ‘compare and despair’.
Eventually this habitual behaviour of putting ourselves last – especially mothers and carers of others – can create a deep-seated, often unacknowledged resentment and frustration. This can energetically block or limit our ability to hear the yearnings of our heart and to truly be capable of loving openly and unconditionally. We become our own worst enemy and we can tell ourselves stories that quite simply are not true.
Traditionally women gathered in circles to share their truths, to sing together, to laugh together, to cry together and to restore themselves to being whole.
Given that I have a global village, I am offering an opportunity to gather in the virtual world where I will help women to understand the challenges of the human mind, the gift of emotional honesty, the need to feed our own spirits and to release emotions that no longer serve you.
This retreat originally ran in December, which can be a really overwhelming month and a time many will struggle with feeling overwhelmed as the year comes to an end. But let's face it, you may feel like that any time of the year... so whenever you feel it might be time to spring clean your mind and heart, this retreat will be right for you.
Either do this by yourself or gather a circle of women and come with an open mind. You may choose to coincide it with the full moon, which has traditionally always been linked to the sacred feminine, as we did when we ran this live..
And here are some wise words from Pamela Redmond, from a list she wrote in an article for Glamour magazine 25 years ago and which has subsequently been turned into a book:
"…Every woman should have…
a youth you’re content to move beyond…
one friend who always makes you laugh and one who lets you cry…
… One old boyfriend you can imagine going back to and one who reminds you of how far you've come.”
So, come and join me. Be prepared to ponder, to reflect, to question, to sing, to cry, to laugh and to be inspired to recapture your own essential essence and light.
Celebrate you, and be you.
How to join and what to bring
While I have run many women’s retreats in real life (or IRL as the kids say), this was the first time I had done an online women’s mini retreat and I am excited and honoured to create this for us. Before you watch the replays you will need some blank paper, some coloured pencils, textas, or crayons, a drink of water and maybe a tissue or two. Possibly you’ll also need a spare pair of knickers if your pelvic floor isn’t great as I expect we’ll laugh a lot as well as cry!!
Also, just a heads up, I use some strong language in the course of this event so if you’re offended by that I just need to warn you.
This event ran live on Wednesday, 7th December 2022 and a second session happened on 19th January 2023.
This event ran for almost 1.5 hours and a video recording is available for anyone who
cannot join us on the night. An audio-only version will also be available for
those who prefer to listen to the content. Once you sign up you will receive
access to the participant area where you'll find the replay, handout and bonus resources.
Free gifts & handout...
I am gifting every woman who joins us two of my audio tracks (worth $10): Cosmos Sound Bath & Rainbow Balance – wonderful tracks to help you relax, restore, reimagine and rest.
There is also be a handout with some inspiration and practical exercises for you to reflect on.
