3-Day Sacred Femininity Retreat


3-Day Sacred Femininity Retreat

15-17th June 2019
at Phi Retreat & Wellness Center, Chania, Crete
With Julie Mosmuller & Vivian Karavanou

Join us for a Sacred Femininity Retreat to celebrate and explore our sacred cyclical wisdom and our feminine sexual energy. Together we’ll practice self care and love. We’ll honour our femininity in all its forms and shapes.

Guides

Julie - Life coach, Menstrual and Creative Movement Therapist, as well as Awakening Women Circle Facilitator, will hold space for us and guide us to dive deep into exploring the feminine cycle through yoga, movement, art and rituals.

Vivian - is a Counselling Psychologist, Integrative Psychotherapist, Yoga and Meditation Instructor. She will l co-hold space and invite us to explore mindfulness through hiking and connecting to mother nature during our one day excursion and Mindfulness Quest to the sacred space of Asklepio in Lissos near Sougia, where she will lead the Full Moon Greek Goddess Ceremony.



After our Cyclical Wisdom Introduction opening circle, the first two days of our retreat includes a Women's Yoga and Movement practice in the morning, and two Cyclical Wisdom Women's Circles, one in the late morning after breakfast and one in the late afternoon.

Then on the full moon of the third day we will journey together to Lissos for a Mindfulness Quest, a Full Moon Greek Goddess healing ceremony and a closing circle.

The retreat will awaken your deep knowing and intuition, so that you will find your path and walk it, supported by like-minded women.

You'll experience a deep sense of relaxation and alignment with your body, your womb, your calling, your past, your future, your lineage, your pleasure.

Testimonials
“The retreat was one of the best experiences of my life. I'm incredibly glad I signed up for it. I am a stronger, happier, more positive person now that I learned so much about myself and life. Thank you!” Mouna, France

‘’I loved the retreat! I feel reborn and I have experienced a radical shift of perspective. I am going along my days with mindfulness and the results are astonishing. My friends are amazed’’ Katarina, Germany


Women's retreats are a beautiful safe and supportive space to share, practice listening with compassion, allow yourself to follow your heart and be held by a group of like-minded women.

When we drop our guard and allow our vulnerabilities to show, we experience how we all share the same basic needs and longings, masked by tensions, insecurities, and fears. This simple act of sharing creates an amazing connection and sense of freedom.

Women's yoga & movement
The morning practice will start with a softening meditation and will end with a long relaxation.

In between we will explore asanas and movement that support the feminine body and open it to relaxation and pleasure. Depending on the phase of your cycle and the moon, you will find your own rhythm and style of movement with asanas supporting the energies present.

Women’s circles
Each afternoon we will gather for a Cyclical Wisdom women’s circle exploring a deep connection to yourself, other women and our cyclical nature. The sessions will start with a womb relaxation, then enter into a healing journey and we will complete with massage and sharing.

In each circle, we'll experience initiation into another phase of womanhood, another way of entering pleasure and creating oxytocin (the love hormone!), another phase of our cycle, of the moon, of the sun:

Themes

** Inner Girl: Finding Peace and safety for our little girls (maiden/follicular/pre-ovulation/spring/waxing moon phase)**
** Alchemical Woman: Fully embracing our sexuality and sensuality (priestess/luteal/pre-menstruation/autumn/waning moon phase) **
** Creative Woman: Healing our mother-daughter wounds (empress/ovulation/summer/full moon phase) **
** Lineage Woman: Taking our place in our ancestral lineage (wise woman/menstruation/winter/new moon phase) **

Whether you have a menstrual cycle or have passed menopause, these phases apply to the subtle energies that affect a woman and her creative potential throughout life.

If you're experiencing (pre-) menstrual pain, menopausal, fertility or sexuality issues, you're likely to find release, opening and a way forward.

This powerful retreat will give you:
• A playful and safe environment to explore and connect deeply with your self and your femininity through women’s circles and rituals, yoga postures, breathing and meditation, creative movement, art and life coaching techniques
• Techniques and self-care practices to take away and apply back home
• A chance to participate in a healing ceremony at the sanctuary of Lissos and connecting with the Greek goddess’ qualities.


One Day Excursion to Lissos near Sougia

Lissos had been an important and prosperous place, famous for its temple of Asklepios, the god of healing. It is a sacred land rich in feminine history and spirituality, a magical place where the Minoans lived, danced and celebrated the Goddess.

Together we will go on a Mindfulness Quest during a 90-minute hike in the wilderness of South Crete. We will discover the ancient Priestess Path that empowers women to be grounded, balanced and spiritually open. We will connect to the Goddess and our deep feminine wisdom during our Full Moon Greek Goddess Healing Ceremony through movement /dance meditation and a shamanic journeying.

During the Mindfulness Quest, we will practice walking meditation which greatly facilitates the development of mindfulness in daily life. When you learn to establish awareness during walking meditation (physically moving with your eyes open), it is easier to arouse that same wakeful quality during other activities, such as practicing yoga, eating, washing the dishes or driving. Your meditation will begin to permeate your entire life.
It is the presence of mindfulness that keeps our consciousness alive and alert to reality, thereby transforming ordinary life into a continuous practice of meditation, and transforming the mundane into the spiritual.
