IN KOH PHANGAN
with Shani Jay
DATE: OCT 7th - 12th 2019
6 DAY FEMININE SOUL AWAKENING
Women worldwide are slowly re-awakening to their divine feminine essence.
We are opening our hearts, reclaiming our power, and living in alignment with our deepest truths.
We are choosing to slow down, and journey inwards.
We are grounding ourselves back into nature, which mirrors our own cyclical and seasonal nature.
This is how women rise.
When we embody self-love, we give ourselves permission to shine the way we were destined to.
When we re-connect to the feminine within us, we tap into the ancient magic and wisdom that has been passed down from Mother Earth over thousands of years.
When we join in sacred circle with our fellow sisters, we feel seen, heard, and understood.
We feel like we're coming home.
This is how women rise.
And you are being called to rise...
Go inwards, listen, feel... let it be.
Connect with your self and your sisters, in a sacred feminine awakening.
Fill the new found spaces with love, healthy practices, and affirming beliefs. Receive the gifts. Awaken to the freshness of your soul, renewed.
Sleep, swim, sunbathe… moonbathe! Move from a place of love. Nourish your heart and soul. Breathe deeply, with intention.
Let go. Dance. Cry. Laugh. Surrender. Just be in the moment, held by Mumma Nature.
You’re here, now.
The physical practice of yoga is about getting in tune with your body, but the true definition of yoga is the union of your soul with source.
We will be stepping onto our mats every day on this retreat (don't worry if you're a total beginner!), and you'll be led through a variety of yoga styles; including hatha, ashtanga, vinyasa & restorative yin.
We'll also be learning about the true principles of being a yogini, and how you can use these tools to transform your life.
You'll develop strength and grace within your body, and finish each practice feeling energised, alive, and re-connected to your soul.
All of this is inspired by the year Shani spent exploring yoga & spirituality in Bali.
Meditation is a deeply spiritual practice that will help you be more present in the moment, and let go of anything weighing you down.
We'll be connecting to our hearts, doing a number of different meditations (guided & non-guided), visualisations, and breathing exercises.
These will help you feel relaxed, at peace, and with a clearer mind and sense of what you truly want from your life.
Even if you can't sit still for 10 seconds - by the end of our 6 days together you'll have learned some powerful tools to create a simple, calming meditation practice for yourself, which feels incredible.
DAILY YOGA & MEDITATION
WHAT WE'LL BE COVERING IN OUR DAILY WORKSHOPS
AND WELCOME IN LOVE
Having struggled with self-love during my teens and early twenties, I know just how important it is to create a healthy, loving relationship with yourself. Because this has a knock-on effect on our entire lives - our self-talk, our eating habits, our relationships, our careers & so much more.
On this women's retreat, we will be diving deep into self-love, self-esteem, and body image. We'll begin the journey of getting you feeling safe and at home in your own skin, and learn the art of self-care. We'll get clear on your current beliefs, stories, and thought patterns, and create new ones together that are based on unconditional love.
Learning to love yourself is the vital foundation to a beautiful, empowering life.
EMBODY THE FEMININE
We live in a masculine dominated world, where we as women have been separated from the divine feminine, and our sacred power.
Embracing our innate feminine energy is key to living a life that is in perfect harmony and in flow with Mumma nature.
You already hold a world of wisdom and knowing inside you - it just needs unlocking.
We'll be exploring feminine and masculine energies and how to harness these; figuring out where you're currently out of balance, and discussing how living in harmony with these energies is where our power lives as women.
We'll be tapping into and trusting our intuition and womb wisdom, practising the art of releasing control, getting comfortable with vulnerability, and learning how to live in flow.
Working with The Wheel of The Year, the seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter), and the four elements (Earth, Fire, Air & Water); we will explore the energies and qualities of each one, which allows us to work with the natural order of the Earth, instead of against her.
This allows an informed journey within as we begin to release, redefine, and remember; coming home to our innate female intuition, and cultivating a sacred sense of empowerment, self-love, trust, vitality and authenticity as women and sisters on this path.
We will also look above to the stars, as they reflect what manifests here below. Astrology is a powerful tool to help us know ourselves and our intentions better, and know others better too.
The Moon reigns the night sky and the tides of the Ocean. She holds so much magic & wisdom within her sacred cycle, which is mirrored in our own menstrual cycle as women.
We'll be exploring the key phases of the Lunar cycle, and how to create New & Full Moon rituals - alone and in circle. We'll also learn how these link to our own cycle, and the four archetypes that represent each of the four phases: Maiden, Mother, Wild Woman & Crone.
Women are cyclical at our core; so when we fully understand these cycles and the different stages of them, we can see which ones are showing up more for us, and which ones we might be ignoring.
When we fully embrace each part of this natural cycle, we are able to transmute emotions & experiences into powerful wisdom, and we are able to feel whole again.
We'll be weaving spirituality & yogic philosophy in to our journey in discovering who you are at a soul level, and what you came here to experience. Maybe that means a location or career change for you, or maybe even the ending or new beginning of a relationship. When all of these components are aligned on a soul level, we will feel aligned and happy with our life.
We will also come face to face with our shadow side, confront our fears; and get comfortable standing in our personal truth, and voicing that. This is how we free ourselves from all that has been holding us back, and keeping us small.
This is how we rise.
Whether you're single or in a committed relationship; understanding and embodying sacred partnership is key to healthy, loving, and fulfilling relationships that not only survive the storms, but thrive.
We'll talk about honouring ourselves and our needs as women, the art of communicating this to others, and setting clear boundaries.
We'll explore any blocks you have around giving and receiving love or pleasure, define and release any sabotaging habits that consistently show up in your life, and raise the bar of what you expect and desire from yourself and others.
This will be a re-writing of your inner story of what you think you deserve, with what you actually deserve - which is probably a whole lot more.
STEP INTO CIRCLE WITH WISE WOMEN
Circles of women are the most direct mirror to our deep inner wisdom. We will be coming together each day to share, learn, laugh, cry, and feel deeply and authentically, supporting each other along the way.
This is not just a women's retreat ladies - it's a sisterhood. I've witnessed women show up to previous retreats as total strangers, and leave as close friends with incredible bonds that I believe will last a lifetime.
This is the power of women coming together in sacred circle.
This experience will also allow you to connect deeply with yourself in a safe, supportive space - which is where you'll have the biggest ah-ha moments, and be reminded of who you truly are, and the woman you came here to be.
HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT...
THIS JOURNEY IS FOR YOU IF...
This journey is for women of all ages, continents & vibrations, who are ready to say YES to creating a whole new life where they are empowered and aligned from the inside, out.
If you're looking to connect to your soul and your beautiful body, challenge yourself like you never have, and awaken your powerful feminine essence - keep reading.
This won't be a week of pamper sessions, and it won't be a week of partying through the night either...
But it will be life changing.
Are you ready to RISE?
