Inner rewilding and connection for women in Cornwall

About this Event

The School has established a strong network of women.

"I am called to rewild you, sisters.  You have got caught up in a cycle that pays no respect to your humanity let alone your womanhood.  Come and learn how to breathe to balance your brain.  To carve out a space for yourself at your own holy alter.  To connect with your soul and your spirit in an intuitive way.  To receive unconditional love and support from myself and other sisters.  Let us dance and release our trauma, let us hold ceremony together to strengthen our connection.  Let us sit together and craft beautiful objects, talk to one another with beautiful words and heal our feminine souls.  Let us share all that it is, to be fully woman, once again"

Lorraine teaches mindfulness and meditation, breathing techniques and sound healing, Yogalates, a yoga-pilates hybrid exercise, and Ecstatic Awakening Dance where the participants are lead in conscious dance of self-discovery and self-healing through this incredibly powerful method.  The sessions are concluded by a time of listening in a sharing circle...a place of non-judgement and a place to be witnessed.  The circles are then closed after a time of communing and socialising together.  Strong friendships and support have been established through these powerful women’s sessions. Strong women need strong women!!


Our next WOMEN'S LODGE is on the 3rd December 2023 from 10am to 5pm at Zen Jungle Retreat , near Bude, North Cornwall.
This gathering will include meeting and greeting, introductions, guided meditation, introspection using various methodologies, some breathwork and Yogalates. Lunch will be a bring and share and will be followed by a cacao ceremony and shamanic trance dance, sound healing and sharing circle. These events will run once every half term, with support, connection and invitations to Ecstatic Awakening events online monthly during the darker months.
The cost of this day retreat will be £44 pp
