Seven Sacred Days Under the Midnight Sun

 

 

This retreat begins on June 16th, the eve of the full moon, and continues through the celebration of the summer solstice.  We will explore our female essence by tapping into goddess archetypes and sacred symbols hidden within our unconscious.

 

 

Traditional feminine arts and crafts will be used as a meditation medium.  Each day of the week will be focused on one chakra system and an aligning female archetype.  Each day we will also have a unique Alaskan adventure, in order to facilitate a rewilding, a rebirthing, and a reconnecting to our most primal feminine aspects.

The morning’s movement circle will help us enter into a primal, meditative state, preparing us to enter our unconscious mind, open our chakra system, balance and expand each energy point, and call forth the associated feminine energy that resides there.

 

 

 

While each woman enters a deep meditative state through the repetitive motion of the craft of that day, a lesson will be given on the corresponding female archetype. (Research shows that engaging one’s hands in repetitive movement while listening to new information heightens one’s ability to pay attention and absorb a greater percentage of that information.)

 

 

The synergistic energy created during these meditative periods will provide an experience of healing, balancing and expansion of each woman’s feminine energy.

 

 

After the morning expansion of our divine feminine energy, we will spend the afternoons adventuring out into the Alaska Wilderness to engage this feminine energy with the wilds of mother earth.

 

 

The purpose of the this retreat is create a synergistic space with like minded sisters, where each of our feminine energies and archetypes can be called forth, healed, set free, and used for the highest good. 

 

 

In this retreat each participant will (along with the other participants) co-create the experience of stepping out of patterns of repression and into the fullness of goddess energy.   As we step out of old repressive patterns, we will start to perceive new and exciting paths before us.  Paths we may have sensed were there, but that we could not find.
