A woman may crave to be near water, or be belly down, her face in the earth, smelling the wild smell.
She might have to drive into the wind. She may have to plant something, pull things out of the ground or put them into the ground.
She may have to knead and bake, rapt in dough up to her elbows.
She may have to trek into the hills, leaping from rock to rock trying out her voice against the mountain.
She may need hours of starry nights where the stars are like face powder spilt on a black marble floor.
She may feel she will die if she doesn’t dance naked in a thunderstorm, sit in perfect silence, return home ink-stained, paint-stained, tear-stained, moon-stained.”
-Clarissa Pinkola Éstes, Women Who Run with the Wolves
Join India Dania for an intimate renewing and re-wilding weekend retreat on Bowen Island.
Gather with your sisters under the dark moon in June, on 1.3 acres of private forested property.
With waterfront access and forest trails just steps away, roam barefoot, squeeze the moss and sand between your toes, dip your skin and bones into Mama Ocean, and remember. Lounge in a hammock strung between the trees, receive the fresh breath of the forest. Sit around an outdoor fire as the sun sets. Lay back on blankets and gaze into the infinite night. Awaken your senses, move your divine body, eat cleansing, organic food. Dance to the drum beat of the Great Mother, stretch, sweat, scream. Come home to yourself Woman.
THE EARTH, THE AIR, THE FIRE, THE WATER, RETURN, RETURN, RETURN, RETURN.
- Daily morning meditation & yoga
- Evening Sensual Embodiment exploration & Wild Woman Movement Medicine
- Mythic Sister workshops and Re-wilding excursions
We are so honoured to have her join us and work her MAGIC in the kitchen!!
"Food introduced itself to me with the idea that it connects us all on the most basic level. Over the last 5 years, I have had the privilege to work alongside passionate humans who've awakened my senses and allowed me to nurture my creative self. I create in the kitchen with the intention of building community and healing others.
My inspirations include: interactions with strangers, crying of joy, the commonalities in cultural diversity, the mystery of the ocean, and our everlasting female strength. I look forward to sharing with you!"
