Each of us begins our journey on planet earth as one with the mother. From the womb, we are nurtured, held, and know no lack. All our perceptions of the outside world are filtered through the mother, and we recognize everything as part of her. Our experience and consciousness is consistent, coherent, unified. Birth, then, is a simultaneous miracle and catastrophe. It is creation and individuation born out of a separation that leaves the infant helpless and literally disembodied, as he is still entirely dependent on and identified with the mother, but no longer a part of her.
One of the great benchmarks on the spiritual path is healing the separation trauma of birth and all the subsequent reflections of that experience in the form of feelings of loneliness, helplessness, disconnection, and lack. In this retreat we will reconnect with the universal feminine energy, or Shakti, that manifests and nurtures us as Mother Earth and as the Divine Mother within.
When we recognize that the Divine Mother always holds us, our perceptions of the self and the world transform. And when we realize that she not only works through us, but that we actually are her (regardless of gender), what would we have the courage and empowerment to become? Learning to listen to the wisdom and needs of the Divine Feminine builds the foundation for lasting change and conscious evolution, as She is the container for all that is.
Join us for this special retreat and dive deep into the beauty of unconditional love, nurturing, and knowing you belong.
