For centuries upon centuries, Women all over the world have gathered and circled together, to share stories, insights, sacred work and the medicine of sisterhood.
The Embodied Woman Retreats are a special offering, to honour this innate need, of coming together to be supported through the richness of sisterhood.
With a focus on embodiment, the weekend is an opportunity for women wanting to connect to their bodies and experience more of their raw, wild and authentic selves.
Over a full weekend, you’ll be guided through intuitive and facilitated practices of;
~ Yoga & Yin Yoga
~ Rewild dance
~ Embodiment practices
~ Guided breathwork journeys
~ Ceremony & Nature connection
All the while being fully supported to explore your body’s awareness and learn how to curiously listen to what arises as we tap into the power, wisdom and understanding that resides beneath our own skin.
These weekends are a truly magic experience of ceremony and celebration, where we lean in and tend to our needs. We laugh, share, move, release, dance, feast, rest and stomp the ground if we need to.
We nourish our souls and and come home to the body.
Coming together, to retreat, celebrate, listen and play in sisterhood, is our birthright as women and if it’s been missing from your life, or is simply time for you to create that space for yourself, we call you to come fireside with us for the weekend.
The next retreat is our Winter retreat from August 26th-28th, 2022.
The winter retreat honours the season that calls us to tune in, hibernate and take stock of what has passed.
We nestle into the cocoon and listen for the visions of what to bring forth into the coming Spring and Summer.
The ability to fully feel and inhabit your body is a skill. Like all skills it takes practice and making the time to show up for yourself.
Over the weekend you'll learn and engage in embodiment tools and practices that help to deepen the feeling of being in your own body.
The ability to feel fully,
To experience your inner world with more clarity,
To access your subconscious,
To return your body to its wild and natural state and
Discover new pathways of movement, thinking and feeling.
Through Yoga, Rewild and devotional dance, Breathwork journeys and sensory and embodiment practices, you will tap into your authentic and beautiful self.
Our home for the weekend is the Bruny Island Lodge, set amongst 860 acres of pristine bushland in remote South Bruny, in Tasmania.
This stunning timber chalet sits on the hill above Oyster Cove, on Mickey’s Bay with the waterfront at our doorstep and walking tracks throughout the property.
The Lodge offers a unique experience of combining spectacular native bushland and an immersion in the wild, with the luxury to retreat into comfort and snuggle up indoors at night.
This location provides us with the perfect cocoon for exploring our deep inner worlds, whilst connecting to the untamed outer landscapes of the natural world. Enjoy evenings under the stars and wake up to the sounds of birds by the water.
~ Double Bed in twin share room (only 2 available)
~ Single bed in twin share room (only 2 available)
~ Single bed in a shared bunk room
~ If you'd prefer your own space in the evenings, the option to camp is also available, for the same price as the shared bunk room.
We, Ebony & Abby, are your guides on retreat. We've been co-creating these offerings together for years and every time we fall deeper and deeper in love with the magic that unfolds in this space.
We look forward to guiding you into ceremony with your body and breath.
Ebony is a Kahuna and remedial Bodyworker, Breathwork practitioner, Mover, Yoga & Acroyoga teacher. Ebony has been immersed in the world of body-based therapies for over a decade, both teaching and continuing the lifelong study of becoming embodied.
Fascinated and humbled by the human body and the innate wisdom it carries, Ebony works with people in many forms to explore more of who we are, beneath our skin.
From Yoga and Acroyoga to movement and bodywork retreats, Ebony also works with people one-on-one, to address physical injuries or explore their emotional and mental selves with Kahuna & remedial bodywork or breathwork & body-centered counselling sessions.
Ebony’s drive comes from a yearning to help others feel connected to themselves, their bodies, their natural landscapes and their community, as a gateway to wholeness.
