Mastering the Art of Healing, Being and Becoming

3rd - 8th March, 2025 


Today we dance on what feels like the edge of the precipice. This pivotal moment calls upon us to heal our individual and collective trauma to fully embody all of who we are and respond to the need of these times from our unique and collective self. In this She Temple retreat we take seriously the uniqueness of Self as part of the mystery of the Whole. We will gather in community for deep healing, to cultivate wisdom grounded in being, attend to the world with clarified heart full joy and descend into the innate sensual intelligence of our bodies It is in the recognition of the self, our relationships, this Earth, and the mystery of all that is sacred that we honour the specificity of our place in the world and the times we face. Here, in a celebration of Eros, we revel in the feminine, the masculine, the dark, the challenging, the ordinary, the grace, holding space for each other as we dare to respond to life’s longing for itself.

“It's time: Let us make sanctuary”
