“Energy moves in waves. Waves move in rhythms. Rhythms move in patterns. Patterns move in cycles. A human being is just this. Nothing more. Nothing less. A dance.”  –Gabrielle Roth

Join us as we journey into an exploration of ritual healing for women. What is your relationship to the feminine and her wisdom? How empowered do you feel as a woman navigating this world? This retreat welcomes any person who identifies as a Woman+.

This workshop is focused on celebrating the body of Woman+ and the sacred feminine within. Through ritual practices, we will share in the sisterhood of humanity and all that it encompasses. We will engage in moving and seated meditation, self-care, Women(+)'s health fundamentals, and sharing circles. We will learn skills that support our empowerment, inner balance, and well-being during and after the time of this pandemic. These practices act as a poultice for old wounds while at the same time celebrate our present earthly bodies.

Dr Julie Von will share powerful, practical techniques to balance your nervous system and identify the unresolved wounds that might be keeping you in a constant state of reaction and stagnation, freeing your creativity and intuition. Lucia Horan leads us in a movement practice that combines stillness of Buddhist mindfulness with the moving mediation of dance to access and transform our bodies.

*Woman+ means all trans, queer, non-binary and gender non-conforming people.

Curriculum Outline

Week 1

Day 1

Introduction

We will begin our journey with the history of Moon Lodge and by setting intentions for our experience together. This session will be focused on setting the framework for a safe environment for learning, healing, and sharing. A circle calls us to bring our full presence to beginning, middle, and end: birth, life, and death. We will reflect on where we are, where we come from, and where we want to be.

Week 2

Day 2

Physical Body

A deep dive into the stories our physical bodies hold. We will track expansion and contraction as a way to help us understand what is happening in the present moment and guide our intuition. Learn how to create your own personal rites of passage to bring home to yourself and those you love.

Week 3

Day 3

Heart & Emotion

Compassion is the umbrella that expands and allows us to be with all that is. This week we learn to recognize the difference between the emotional mind vs emotional instinct rooted in the body. This brings us into conversion with our emotions and uncovers our power to transform and heal.

Week 4

Day 4

Mind & Story

Explore liberating your story and identify where it hinders or frees you. Through mindfulness techniques, learn to track habitual patterns and create spaciousness so you may move in action vs reaction. Thoughts reflect reality. By the redirection of our thoughts, we can open new neuro-channels and new possibilities of experiencing the present moment.

Week 5

Day 5

Spirit & Fusion

In this unifying week, we weave together body, heart, mind, and spirit connection. We honor each of our unique spiritual beliefs and backgrounds, while strengthening our collective prayer. Here, we learn to access practices that open and clarify intuition.

Week 6

Day 6

Integration

The Moon Lodge circle has allowed us to collectively hold what should not be held alone. Integration is bringing the circle home so that as women we may experience acceptance, enoughness, and wholeness. We mark where we have been, what we have healed and how we may transform further through action and service within our own communities.
