"Deep, clear, internally connective, magical. Bryony is like a powerful conductor of feminine energy and wisdom and a knowledgeable teacher of deep and almost forgotten feminine arts." - Katrin
Inner Alchemy : Creativity : Flower Healing : Sacred Sexuality : Womb Wisdom
Welcome to The Womb Mysteries, an afternoon retreat held in a cosy location in North London.
You are warmly invited to join Bryony, for a rich evening discovering the Womb Mysteries: the recognition that the Womb holds the mystical blueprints of creation, the multi-dimensional feminine essence of power and Primordial Life Force.
This day has been gently designed for nourishing intimacy with the body and community as we re-wild our Womb - our seat if power delving into the magic of Shamanic Womb Arts.
Through devotion we can access the creative and transformative gifts of the Womb, reconnecting us to our true essence, rooted in consciousness of the Earth.
This in-depth workshop, is an opportunity to dip your toes into the inky waters of the feminine, whilst exploring soul & body enlivening practices such as Shamanic Womb Work, Eros Embodiment, Womb Yoga and Flower Healing.
Over the afternoon you will be guided through a plant spirit tea ceremony with Cacao & Rose, embodied movement, ritual and body connection practices - awakening your capacity to listen and receive the pulse of aliveness.
To seal in the sacredness of our gathering, you will receive an ancient shamanic Womb Blessing, closing with an ethereal journey to the spirit of your Womb, calling you home to yourself.
Practices we will explore:
- Shamanic Womb Work
- Somatic Movement
- Flower Codes: The Rose
- Creative Ritual
- Womb Yoga
- Eros Embodiment
Your Womb is a portal of creation.
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 female sensuality and power.
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.
“Beautiful and nurturing perfect combination of personal work and circling, meditation and embodiment. Very deep work, very grateful.”
Why the Womb?
As the interface of elemental and cosmic rhythms, the Womb offers a gateway through which one can travel through and to the other-world.
It is a place of alchemy. Within her void like chamber, holds the capacity to trans-mutate energy, the current of life force from one form to another.
As the source of our feminine essence, it houses our power, passion and purpose.
However, through living in a fast-paced culture that reveres “progress” and superficial beauty over the depth of wisdom our body and Earth holds, many are disconnected from the source of our creative essence. We have come to fear the dark, ignoring the cyclical rhythms that call us home to restore, reflect and incubate our inner knowing. This separation causes us to doubt and question our intuition, undervalue our creative expression and ignore the signals from our body when it asks us to slow down and listen.
These sessions are a calling to return to the Mystery; the restorative dark of our Wombs, to retreat, find nourishment and explore practices that bring balance to the body and soul, awakening the creative and sensual essence.
As we begin to embody the wisdom within us, we can grow a deeper trust and sense of acceptance towards ourselves, honouring the inner knowing that we have when we let our intuition and our Womb lead the way.
“Bryony is absolutely incredible. This is one of the best courses I have ever taken in it's layers of depth, curiosity and inspiration. Bryony is present, thorough and inspiring. I couldn't recommend this course more.”
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.
Yoni Yoga Nidra
A deeply restorative practice that invites you to the liminal space between dreaming and awake, using techniques from Yoga and Shamanic Trance, for healing and deeper connection to self. This practice has been specially designed to revitalise the Womb space, as we greet the body with love and tenderness.
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.
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.
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.
“This was such a beautiful event. Bryony facilitated and held the space in such a wonderful way, that is was safe enough for healing to happen. Although this was only a taster the depth of the work was apparent which could be felt through Bryony's devotion, passion and love for the work. I have a lot of gratitude, thank you so much for this event." - Georgie

“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.”
“There is something powerful and magical about when women come together. Bryony was the most amazing guide and space holder....and the space was indeed a treat to be in! A cocoon away from the world full of magic, stillness, safety and quiet potential. Bryony was very skilled and able to invite and tease out a way of leaving all women there so connected by the end of the workshop. I loved the singing...the partner work, the circles where I felt supported and included as part of the group, the chats to deepen bonds over snacks, the mudra work and nidra. Very powerful.”
“Such a gorgeous experience, witnessing and being witnessed is so powerful, since the session I've been celebrating a deeper connection with my womb and the life force, which we awakened together. I highly recommend Bryonia as her wisdom, which she shares serves profound healing and supports awakening joy and creativity. The aftercare is also thoughtful and beautiful, the mediation and other resources shared supports me to go even deeper with this practice.”

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.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org The deadline for scholarship applications is the 15th November.
