~ Somatic Practice ~ Self Love ~ Pleasure Reclamation ~ Nature Connection ~ Sacred Sexuality ~ Collective Liberation
 

Gather under the Taurus New Moon in the Valleys of Cymru (Wales) for 5 days & 4 nights with a powerful group of women and womb folk. 

Are you willing to meet what arises as you claim your desires as sacred and honour your boundaries as worthy and needed?

Do you wish to embody the change towards a pleasure-led and heart-centric world? 

Join us in acknowledging experiences of the past and rewriting these stories in the present so that we may we create a life rooted in Earth, love and pleasure 

We will journey in and through the body lovingly witnessing and nurturing the tender places, reclaiming that which has been shamed and outcast and remembering the wellspring of eros rippling through the core of your being. 

With guided ceremony, tools and practice you increase your capacity to be with what is,the art of being creates space for full bodied pleasure  and the strength to claim our truth

"Powerful, empowering, wild. The location was breathtaking, a heaven of wild peace in an ancient woodland. I am infinitely grateful for the space held, the vulnerability, the community of the beautiful womb folk with whom I shared this experience. Womb wisdom, heart connection, sacred sexuality and sensuality, so many beautiful, rich practices tailored into a transformative weekend."

Pleasure Revolution

Pleasure: “A state or feeling of happy satisfaction and enjoyment from experiencing the fullness of each moment”

Revolution: “Overthrowing a government or social order, in favour of a new system”

The current system is not there to serve us all. It depends on our dis-embodiment and dis-ease. The Earth on the other hand is here and serving us and it's about time we start to reciprocate that with receiving its love openly and giving back by being in pleasure, presence and awareness. It gets to start with us choosing to stand FOR pleasure, rather than fight AGAINST a crumbling system. 

The moment you decide that you are enough, when you bask in all you are and you feel the pulse of life moving through you, wanting to express itself through you… you realise that you don't need to run around, worry, or stress. That you don't need to seek, you become. Resting into the knowing that pleasure is all around you and WITHIN you. A slowing down, a presencing, a sinking into, listening and re-membering. 

This Pleasure Revolution is a change in the system internally and simultaneously externally. Change IS possible, it is the only constant, and so it is possible in our life time. When we reclaim our truth and pleasure within, it anchors us more fully into our embodied experience of life: giving us greater capacity to be in deep relationship with ourselves, each other and nature. From here, our felt-sense of truth naturally ripples out and expresses; in our way of being, our actions and our communication.

What we are sharing and creating over these days are tools so that you can become deeply resourced, know that you are worthy to unfurl into the wisdom and medicine of your Body & Eros. Making these changes is part of the (un)learning journey in which we rewrite old stories and deeply remember that life is pleasurable, that everything we need to feel and experience a state of pleasure is already within us, in reciprocity with Mother Earth and the Earth of our Body. When we gaze into the dominant cultural narrative, we can see we are being sold shells on a seashore. We are not lacking, nor do we need to push, pull, stretch ourselves to attain pleasure and stand in our power.  

Reclaim your power and say yes to a way of being rooted in body wisdom & pleasure.

The Facilitators;

Anouska is a Sacred Sexuality Body-Worker, an inner child therapist, a trainee in NLP therapy and Embodiment Counselling who is also trained in trauma informed care and is the creator of The Ethereal Red Tent Collective and Bleeding space. She is an experienced space holder who has previously held womens retreats called ‘Wild & Nourishing Weekend Retreats’ and holds womens circles and workshops such as Embodied Eros & Cacao and Rope Release. 

‘It has been a dream of mine to create a retreat that allows all the spaciousness to drop deeply into our bodies, emotions and our pleasure. A whole retreat dedicated to reclamation of our truth where we can really learn our bodies language, together.  Through many of my own struggles I wished and hoped for spaces like this, for safe, nourishing, expansive spaces to hold me in all I was carrying. From shame, guilt and fear I held so much in, not knowing who could hold the weight of my truth and trauma. Through much support and finding the right tools for me I have navigated my way into a place where I can hear my body speak, where I create nurturing patience within myself for all the parts that still need tending to, to this day. I have learnt how to know and voice my boundaries, wants and needs with confidence, knowing that if someone can't meet them then its OK. Because I have me, my pleasure and my love. I have finally stopped repeating old patterns, seeking love and distractions in all the wrong places and am following the path of my heart, womb and pussy
Not only does leading this pleasure led life open you up to receive more connection to self and full bodied juicy orgasms… it creates more space to receive and magnetize to you; people who align with you and bring you even more pleasure, clarity, truth and growth, the jobs you desire, the lifestyle you desire and  a deep connection and awareness to Earth and her erotic pulse and so much more. I look forward to deepening this journey with you. ’

‘The wild goddess retreat, held in a castle on the outskirts of Glastonbury will be a weekend, I will never forget. Thank you Noushie for sharing your medicine, your energy + your gifts in a space which was truly held in nourishment + safety. I was able to go deep within myself in the holding of yourself + other sisters to witness parts of myself I hadn't yet fully seen. The weekend brought healing, expansion, joy + tears through so many powerful workshops + offerings.

A beautiful space with delicious vegan food. I am honestly so grateful, I really felt the depth of your wisdom, the strength + warmth of your heart + your unwavering intuition. I cannot wait for us to gather again. Thank you.'

Taila Rose believes that coming home to body and eros, tending the pathways of aliveness and remembering our wholeness are the antidotes to the crisis of belonging we currently find ourselves in.

She is a somatic sexologist, earth & pleasure advocate and relationship mentor; supporting rewilding our relationships with self, other and nature.

Taila holds loving spaces to unravel, reveal & reimagine ourselves as wild nature; cyclical eco-systems with erotic innocence, pleasure and the capacity for gratitude, reciprocity and reverence for all life.

Take a peak at what else she's up to here: taila.rose

‘My journey and quest for truth and justice left me noticing something was missing, incomplete, in the places and spaces I found myself in. Through vision quests & community exploration, I came to realise that Eros is the missing piece, so I dove deeper into exploring this current that flows between and through all life. It led me on a journey into pleasure activism, sexuality and healing disconnection & depression. For me, Eros represents the energetic field of love that exists between all of life. Reconnection with this primordial life principle is key to change Systems of Oppression into Systems of Freedom.

I believe that Love, Sexuality and Community are foundational pillars for systems change in our time.’ - Taila Rose 

 

Taila provided a nurturing, open, non-judgemental and safe space for me to explore deep into my sexuality and sexual experiences. She helped me to see clearly that what I experience is not weird or scary but wonderful, magical, erotic and deeply connected to the elements. I felt more relaxed, grounded and accepted in my sexuality after her workshop. I have never met anyone who is able to relate to me and understand my sexuality without projections of shame, dismissal or jealousy, then I was fortunate enough to meet and work with Taila. Taila is a rare gift, compassionate, incredible listener and powerfully connected to the Earth and to spirit. Jump at the opportunity to work with her.”

Our Intention;

Together our intention is for everyone who attends this retreat to leave with a deep reclamation of inner power. To feel empowered with the deepening connection to self, nature and community. We desire to create a space that allows you to access deep pleasure to harness resilience, power, creativity and sex magic. We will support you to release shame, stigma and old limiting stories that are holding you back from feeling your ultimate fullness, reclaiming exiled parts and supporting your unfurling into embodied eros and a revolution rooted in pleasure.

 

Who is this for;

We have created this event for Women and Womb folk due to the retreat focusing on female pleasure anatomy, wombs and the conditioning experienced by those socialised as girls - e.g. to be a ‘good girl’. We are always striving to create a diverse environment with inclusive language within our spaces, whilst also honouring our limitations. Please do get in contact with Taila or Anouska if you wish to explore if this is for you.
