LIFE TRANSFORMING REATREATS FOR WOMEN
In many parts of the world, women's circles are emerging in various editions. As in the '70s basic groups and women's communities of indigenous societies, there is a need in our time again for women to meet in loving, supportive and appreciative communities of being a woman, and the world needs more feminine primacy.
Inspired by this trend in time, we offer a ceremony only for women.
During this women's retreat, we hold a ceremony with a sacred tea that has been used in shamanic work for many centuries. We offer a warm, safe and loving space that provides participants the best conditions to go deep into the healing and transforming inner processes that the sacred tea opens up to.
The ceremony is conducted in a unique way in which the facilitators use aspects from Native American and Nordic shamanism, Tibetan Buddhism and psychotherapy. As a traveler, you will experience a setting where you can get the help and care you need at any time during the process. The space is carried by emotion, spaciousness and great attention to the processes of the individual.
The soundscape during the ceremony is created with a special focus on supporting the inner work with the sacred tea. There will be singing and instruments complemented by music created by Axis Mundi (The Magic Garden's own band). With her voice-healing, Ecaterina adds a powerful healing and redeeming energy that is, for many, invaluable support for their inner work.
WHAT CAN BE CURED
The sacred tea used at the women's ceremony is used to work, heal and redeem the areas of our lives, where we feel stuck and need help to move forward. It can help us see our potential, find inner guidance and create balance in all areas of our lives.
The tea works multi-dimensionally during an inner journey, and often with different layers of our being. The themes mentioned below on the physical, mental and spiritual levels will therefore almost always be interrelated. As we begin to discover these contexts, deep inner realizations of, why we are who we are, appear. At the same time, a whole new inner freedom seeps in as we let go of all the often invisible luggage we have carried around most of our life.
Examples of themes that may come up during an inner journey:
On the physical level:
►diseases (and the cause of these)
►abuse - for example, alcohol, hashish, medication
On the mental level:
►addiction - example food, sex, ludomania
►negative patterns in family relationships or relations to other people
►negative self-perception, lack of self-esteem
►a closed heart
On the spiritual level:
►(re-)finding a deeper meaning with life
►feeling connected to a greater whole
►transcend the notion of only being one's ego
►experience universal love
►contact with higher spiritual beings
►visit other dimensions
►past life experiences
►receive insights and visions
