“A beautifully held, safe and nourishing space facilitated by 3 gorgeous sisters. My intention was to truly honour where I am and to open up to feeling supported by sisterhood. I felt loved, cared for, seen, held, hugged, nourished and so much more. Caressed by the medicine of the rose, humbled by mama Cacao, it was a truly beautiful journey. Deeply grateful.”

The Call

 

Your Womb has a voice. 
Listen deep, and you will hear her calling you Home.

 

This is for Women who feel the drum beat of their Womb, calling them back to the ancient ways. 

It is for those hold a deep remembering of when a Women's body was seen as an embodiment of the Earth, revered as sacred and whole.

In this modern age, the symptoms of a society disconnected from our bodies and the Earth are becoming more prevalent. The rise in Womb health conditions, such as PCOS, endometriosis, uterine fibroids and chronic fatigue are a by-product of a world that is far removed from the cyclical rhythms that are here to guide us through this ever-changing landscape. This afternoon retreat is about returning to ourselves in our fullness, integrated in all aspects: health, wellbeing, creativity, spirituality, vocal activation and community. 

Here we honour the intelligence of the Earth and our own bodies. 

Within a supportive group of Womxn, we unearth our wild feminine power through an in-depth workshop discovering the multi-dimensional nature of our Wombs and Wild Nature of our Authentic Voice.

It is an offering to come home to ourselves - body, blood and flesh, so that we find a way back to source through ritual and community, and from that space we can allow ourselves to e-merge once more.



“A truly magical day, fillled with nourishment, catharsis and empowerment, held in community. Deep gratitude.”
- Rachel




What to Expect



Shamanic Womb Work

In this work we believe that the Womb has a spirit, a primal voice that speaks an ancient wisdom when we are ready to listen. This is the art of direct revelation, a fundamental principle in shamanic practice whereby we receive knowledge, guidance and medicine from the body.


Creative Rituals

Shamanic & Creative rituals co-created to deepen intimacy with your body, giving voice to the sacred vessel of your Womb whilst awakening your capacity to listen and receive the pulse of aliveness. Here we are weaving a collective tapestry of remembrance, building community whilst unlocking our expression.


Self Pleasure  and Somatic Movement

Self Pleasure is a practice of devotion to one's aliveness where thoughts can drop to emotions, to feelings, to sensations. Connecting with the tools of sound, breath, movement and touch. Sensing that which is there to be witnessed, recalibrating your nervous system with the pulse of Earth, listening and remembering the current of Eros at the core of your being. From here, you come home to a space where you get to be so radically human that you can drink your own medicine, rooted in your unique earthen expression of erotic innocence.

Gathered in circle we descend into the body to be with the sensations fully and completely; using tools of sound, breath, movement and touch. Meeting the matter of body and earth, self pleasure allows for relating with sensations, eros and group field without attachment to story, judgment or censorship.


Movement Alchemy

Through Womb Yoga and Temple Dance we explore practices that nourish both within and without. These elixirs will move stagnant energy, alchemising tension and blocks whilst cultivating a relationship with Earth Eros (Life Force). These somatic, sensory explorations offer tools for us to become more embodied - connecting to the current of life that is moving through and with us.

We howl, we scream, we laugh, we cry, we dance, we dream - and together WE RISE.


Sharing Circles

One of the most empowering things Women can do, is to share their story. 
In this workshop sharing circles are here to create a sacred and held space, forming authentic and deep connections amongst the group. These offer a place to share and reflect on the journey, our collective prayers and intentions, and what is being revealed to you through this process.



“Thank you Bryony and Taila for a beautifully tender evening of connection to self, sense and each other.”
- Sophie

"Many treats in today's co-lead workshop. But one of the best bits for me when I come to these workshops is the freedom to explore who I am...through singing, sound, dance, talk shares. There is something wonderful learnt in the body when we remember what it is to be in connection with the group when we are all in line doing the same thing, and still be in connection when we explore our own thing to our own rhythm. Thank you ladies. Another piece was woken today. It's also such a pleasure to witness true friendship, love, kindness and support, which is what I saw in all ladies running the show. Thank you!"

Testimonials
 

“The facilitators created a wonderful, nourishing container that made me feel held and open to be with what was there for me. The care and attention clearly taken to prepare a warm, welcoming environment really supported me. The different sections of the workshop offered a variety of ways to express creativity and emotion. There was also a very clear acceptance of ‘weirdness’ named in the space, and an invitation to bring our ridiculous, silly self, which I really appreciated. There were moments where I witnessed all of the women who were holding the space following their intuition with such exquisite mastery, that it really touched my heart. Thank you soooo much for your wonderful, wild, open spirits and for following your callings to share this sacred work. It’s an honour to witness and be in the presence of so much raw, real feminine expression.” 
- Sarah


“Yet again Bryony has succeeded in putting together three hours of mind, body and soul nourishing material which brings together a group of sisters who have never met and yet, share such a special connection, throughout the experience. By channelling the magical energy of the serpent, I managed to shed aspects of grief and trauma through a somatic movement practice and embodied visions of what I wanted to manifest. Bryony is a humble and skilled facilitator who weaves together ancient knowledge with bespoke practices to create a truly unique and unforgettable workshop that will have lasting effects in your day to day life. I can't recommend her work enough.” 
Jess

Who is this workshop for? Is this the right space for you?
 

This is a place for authentic connection, deep listening and community. You will be invited to explore content such as sexuality and emotions, so it is important for our own integrity and welfare of those attending that we share these points for you to be sure that this space is suitable for you.

Our intention is to offer work that is inclusive, however through our own practices of listening, learning and unlearning - we have decided that this space is specifically for female-embodied beings aka those with Yoni's and Womb's (whether or not still physically present) - which includes non-binary and gender fluid folk. 

Our reasons for this is that some of the content is very specific to the female anatomy - we will be speaking of the Womb, the Yoni and other aspects of the female body. We also recognise that we do not have the experience required to hold space safely beyond this within this setting, and want all of those that attend feel held and acknowledged. So the most responsible decision we can make is to recognise our limitations, as this offers a much a safer and authentic space for everyone. We are passionate about continuing to learn and grow in this.

We also want you to note that while this work may have therapeutic benefits, this is not therapy or a replacement for therapy. If you are experiencing significant mental health challenges we strongly encourage you to seek 1-1 support from a qualified psychotherapist

Some of the content shared by participants in sharing circles may be triggering or traumatic in nature. This immersion is designed to create a space for us to be open and honest with each other about our experiences, as we explore some new and unchartered territory. Sharing and listening is an important aspect of this, and can support the process of transformation, and simply being.

While we do our best to create an environment that feels safe and inclusive, it is your responsibility to look after your own needs and boundaries. If this is something you struggle with, or you are concerned about any element of this retreat please contact us in advance. We are very willing to chat on the phone and check in about whether this retreat is right for you at this time.

*Scholarship Places

We have a handful of low cost scholarship places available via application.  These scholarship places are for Black/ Women of Colour, LGBTQ+ folks and women from marginalised communities or challenging socio-economic backgrounds. 

We are in an ongoing iterative process of learning and unlearning how to make our space equitable, diverse and inclusive of the multitudes of experiences of women. Creating scholarship and bursary places for those who might struggle to access or participate in an event like this is part of our approach. 

However we recognise that this can only be one part of our approach to inclusivity and requires us to be in a continued learning process around the themes of trauma, class, race, gender and so much more. Another part of our approach is that we have a number of structures of care in place for the retreat itself and various feedback systems both in person and anonymous that we welcome. 

To apply for a scholarship please contact: bryony.darbon@gmail.com The deadline for scholarship applications is the 14th December.
