Welcoming all female flavoured creatures* to an intimate gathering of deep nourishment, restoration and creative inspiration as we connect with the wisdom of our wombs through gentle Yoga practice, amplified by the loving support of the plant ally Cacao.
The asanas and movement of Yoga bring us out of our heads and into our bodies into a state of grounded, calm, open awareness. Leading the way, our breath becomes our most potent tool for energising our bodies, tending to our inner ecosystems and supporting our ability to self-regulate and regenerate. In this deeply felt, embodied state we have a greater ability to access the luminous wisdom and beauty within us, connecting to the deeper mysteries of who we truly are.
A focus of our practice – through our awareness, postures and hand mudras – will be the connection with our womb-space. This part of our bodies is so central to who we are and so full of primal power and Feminine wisdom, and yet so many of us go through our lives without living in a dynamic relationship with our wombs or harnessing the gifts available to us. In a world so out of balance, life is beckoning us to activate this potential so we can receive the gifts and embody them through our being.
Our ally for our practice will be Cacao (Theobroma cacao — “Food of the Gods”), an extremely gentle, loving, high-vibrational plant that has been used in ritual context for thousands of years as sacred plant medicine. The deva of Cacao (the consciousness and spirit behind the form) is the perfect companion to support us in rooting into our bodies, connecting with our capacity to feel deeply and opening ourselves more fully to life and to love.
In my quest for meaning and truth in life, I have studied many paths of healing and expansion in the past twenty years including Yoga, Tantra, shadow healing, spiritual ecology and plant medicine. I began Yoga very intuitively in the late ninetees and did a teacher training in 2009 although focused on facilitating my workshops on authentic relating and expanded sexuality in the last ten years. I always felt it was strange that the Yoga that was taught in most studios seemed to have quite a masculine approach and be handed down through male lineages but the classes were nearly all full of women!
This past year I have dived deeper into my own personal Yoga practice and started combining it with my enquiry into womb wisdom. On my quest to discover, access and embody the ‘Feminine’ within me and the particular gifts this has to offer the world, my connection with my womb has been like a secret blueprint coded within, full of information and powerful insight and also the most potent tool for self-care that I have come across. On this journey I have also discovered that my favourite plant medicine Cacao is the perfect ally in this work, and I feel excited to share my tools, insights and inspirations I have discovered so far with you!.
*Cacao in high doses is not suitable if you are on antidepressants or have a serious heart condition (please feel welcome to come and have a homeopathic dose!)
*This workshop is for anyone with a womb-space. Transwomen are welcome. You do not need to have a womb (also for example if you have had a hysterectomy)
