The Sacred Opening - residential retreat for women with Carol McInerney

April 26th - 28th 2019

Friday 6pm - Sunday 2pm

*only 2 places still available

Sli na Bande, Kilmurray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland

All of us enter this world through the gateway of the female body, carried and birthed by the innate intelligence and life giving force of the womb. For thousands of years the grace and wisdom of the womb centre has been buried and suppressed. Modern culture moves many of us out of right relationship with our physical bodies, with our sensuality and with our sexuality as a sacred, natural and healing force. At this time on the planet we are all challenged to remember our true nature and come home to a felt sense of safety and belonging within ourselves and with the earth we live upon.

This residential weekend of womb-centered movement for women is an opportunity to gather, move, rest and sit in circle together. Supported by the embodiment practice of Open Floor and the teachings of the chakra system, we will enter the cave with curiosity and listen for what arises. In dance as meditation we meet the intelligence of the life force moving through us and offer it into motion; this opens doorways to our essential self and helps us to awaken and align with what matters most to us. With our feet planted on the earth, breath in the belly and an aligned mind we can make a choice for wholehearted, embodied living where we can express the full force of our creativity and be here now…in all our beauty.

This retreat is open to women at all stage of life and cycle and takes place in the natural surrounds of Sli na Bande, with delicious food, cosy accomodation and optional hot tub included in the price.

€300 / €275 (early bird by March 28th). Place secured with a €75 deposit.
