rewilding :: the process of returning to one's most natural state
your womb is the door to healing.
In a world that creates stigma around women's wellness - from our periods to menopause - it is up to you to get in touch with the innate wisdom of your body; to observe patterns that have caused heartache for generations & lifetimes; and to relearn the cyclic nature of living that was nearly erased by the patriarchy.
It's time to remember.
This is the era of REWILDING.
WHAT TO EXPECT
This journey is for you if you are looking to escape the hustle hamster wheel and immerse yourself into womb wisdom, Ayurvedic wellness, mindful movement, and the power of sisterhood..
Every morning will begin with tea and a 2-hour practice of intentional movement followed by a women's circle. If you're new to women's circles, not to worry, they are the piece of community and connection you have been craving- story telling, yoga-inspired tools to add to your daily rituals, personal reflection, and sharing to learn from one another. I find that the biggest "aha!" moments stem from seeing yourself in someone else's experience.
During the afternoons, there will be plenty of time to rest and explore the property, as well as optional workshops to deepen your knowledge of Ayurveda, womb health, and syncing with the moon. Evenings will consist of restorative and rejuvenating practices to cultivate rest and integration in the body before we dine and turn in for the night.
**Movement styles include slow flow Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Yoga Nidra, pranayama 9breath work), dancing, and a variety of meditations. You do not have to be a practiced yogi to attend.
