Women's Retreats

Magic happens when a group of women come together with the intention to hold each other in a sacred space. Through this women’s retreat we will reconnect with the inner goddesses that live within us all and reignite the power of sisterhood, aided by the use of psilocybin and other mind-revealing practices.
It is in the safety of a circle of women that we can create the time and space to drop into the wisdom of our bodies, to find a source of silence away from the noise of modern life, and access a deeper knowing and wisdom. There is a process of ‘remembering’ that happens in women-only spaces; what it is to be in a woman’s body at this time, to see our own experiences in others’ stories, to feel heard and understood, in our light and our shadow.
“I had never truly felt the power of sisterhood the way I did on the retreat. I will be forever thankful for choosing the Women’s retreat. I am looking into further women’s retreats and workshops as we speak!”
Susanna, 43
It is amazing how fast and how deep we can drop into a sense of connection and form a strong group bond on the women’s retreat. We weave a web that holds the group in the peak experience and beyond, becoming a source to drink from long after the retreat is over. The content of the retreat is geared towards women’s experiences - touching on sensuality, sexuality, the menstrual rhythm, the different phases of life, the challenges we face, and the joys we experience in this form.

Psychedelics will be a crucial ally in this joint journey, being an incredible force of truth and immensely helpful tool for facilitating understanding, heart opening and connection. This will be supported by an exquisite, nurturing and inspiring blend of ritual, ceremony, song, movement, meditation, group inquiry, as well as connection with nature’s cycles and the four elements, exploring how each manifests within our own psyche and bodies, and thereby getting an experiential sense of our oneness with to the natural world.
This retreat is an inclusive space for all who have female bodies or identify as women. We wish to emphasise that this workshop will have a strong focus on femininity and the female experience. If you are called to join and you are transgender or non-binary, please get in touch and we can discuss if this would be a safe space for you, and how to make more inclusive spaces in the future.

“I had a certain resistance to being around an all-female group and have had my eyes opened to the amazingly nurturing and unique experience this can provide - and why it is vital in today's society [...] I have taken away so much on the importance of ritual, altars, bodywork, voicework, meditation, sharing and holding space for others, dancing freely, and music. I cannot describe the feeling of ease and safety I now feel when meditating on the ever-present and unfaltering elements. And I will forever keep the memory of swaying in a circle with my sisters.”
Sima, 27
