A four-day movement medicine immersion featuring transformative breathwork practices, cacao meditation, hoop dance and embodiment workshops, Wild Feminine circles, and delicious plant-based meals
This is you...
- Your heart longs to reconnect with Nature
- You feel called to create and renew your rituals of wellness
- You are tired of one size fits all movement and you are (re)discovering your own ecstatic nature
- You are curious about your pelvic power, your centers of creativity, and your innate ability to birth your life
- You want to explore the holistic possibilities of the hula hoop as a portal to help you discover wholeness
- You are ready to breathe, meditate, feel and dance your way into love
This is us...
You arrive at Sex, Spirit & Spin, a retreat held within the deep, protective ecosystem of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Surrounded by forest and waterfalls, you immediately feel your nervous system unwind and long held tensions release as your wild, loving nature springs forward.
After checking in and picking up your gift bag, you may wish to embark on one of the meditation trails so you can breathe in the cedar, set your intentions and connect to the heart of the land.
To Ecstatic Embodiment...
From hoop and movement therapy sessions to cacao meditation, drum circles and self-care conversations focused on pelvic health and womb connection, you can feel that this retreat is designed to support your access to the calm center within, as well as, the raging and necessary chaos of your inner fire.
Rather than resist, deny or silence your voice, power and pleasure, you feel guided to release stagnant energy and to discover ways to rejuvenate your vital essence - your antidote to the depleting energies of the current era.
While you dance wildly, eat delicious plant-based meals and bathe in the beauty of nature, you notice yourself attuning to your inner peace and potent desire.
Within the powerful alchemy of sacred sisterhood, you connect with a field of tenderness and warmth stimulated by the release of oxytocin - the molecule of love. You remember that when women gather, we stimulate this bonding hormone - the hormone present during deep connection, love making, and breastfeeding.
