Join us where the rainforest meets the Caribbean sea, for Embodying The Goddess: Sacred Feminine Retreat.
For 8 days and 7 Nights, December 1-8, 2022, we will step into the Temple of the Goddess. We will gather together in the ancient way of woman, in a private Goddess Garden Temple, enveloped in a cloud of Shakti sensuousness and sacredness, offering our devotion, connecting heart to heart , raising the vibration of love on the planet by awakening our deep feminine essence by the grace of the Divine Mother, through lens of Shakta Tantra and the Sacred practices of Mystical Dance and Feminine Form Yogini Yoga (rooted in Traditional Tantra, Hatha and Bhakti Yoga with an Odissi influence) + much more.
Our time will be well spent immersed in the beauty of the natural world and reconnecting to ourselves in Sacred Ritual, Traditional Tantra Practices, Mystical Dance (Dance as an embodied, spiritual practice), Feminine Form Hatha Yoga, Para Tan Inner Sakthi Mantra Initiation, Ceremony, Water Rituals, Sacred Sound, Song, and so much MORE! Creating a sacred container through ritual practices, this offering is a remembrance of an ancient past when the Goddess tradition was flourishing and woman, the deep feminine mysteries and the priestess was revered as sacred. We will have daily deep Sadhana (spiritual practice) and private time to integrate.
Dance is the language of the soul that can reveal our very own innate mystery and union with the cosmos. It has historically been an authentic spiritual path of devotion leading to realization of the oneness of being. The Temple Dancers danced in Divine ecstasy and excelled as Yoginis. We will embody that role and literally dance the Divine into existence as we dance from the inside out... we dance as an offering of worship until the dancer and the dance become one....the Divine dancing Her beloved.
There is no previous formal dance or Yoga experience necessary for this offering as Mystical Dance begins where technical dance ends and our Yogini Yoga and Traditional Tantra practices are suitable for all levels, though it is helpful if you have a familiarity with movement and ritual.)
