Recovering the Sacred Body
July 13-14 2019
Finally rescheduled from 2017! This two-day retreat is an embodied and spiritual approach to re-membering the sacredness, truth, inner guidance, and joy within our bodies — something many women in recovery yearn for though don’t find reflected back in much of traditional recovery, yet alone our dominant western culture.* As sober women, we may dampen or cut ourselves off from our own power and intuition. We may also place our trust in others while mistrusting our own longings and intuitive voices.
For two heart-full days, we’ll create together a space for settling into and reconnecting with our bodily selves. Participants will experience deep grounding and meditation practices, group processing, gentle body-oriented and movement practices, time for journaling and reflection, and small and large group exercises. Through these practices, we will reconnect our bodily selves with the strength, power, and intelligence of the Sacred Feminine and the Wisdom and Consciousness of the Earth. This Intelligence is our birthright, and offers offers us immeasurable healing and transformation at the deepest levels of our being and in our day-to-day sober lives.
We’ll also attend to releasing the heavy energies of self-limiting patterns and beliefs that may persist in sobriety. We’ll engage in mindful dialogue about what it means to live an “embodied sobriety.” The retreat will culminate in a ceremony for personal and planetary healing.**
*This is not a retreat to malign or diminish traditional models or approaches to recovery, but to provide what many women feel is missing or under-acknowledged in such approaches.
**This is not a therapy or mental health group, nor is it for anyone in crisis.
Space will be limited. Registration information coming soon.
