Villa des Roses
The Women Are Medicine is intended to create a space where women from all walks of life can connect and participate in circle together.
We will work in ways that honour our sacred core as women. We work with the elements and we work with conscious intent to work with nature –including our own – as sacred.
We can choose for a slow Earth arrival day. Gently moving into a second day rousing our, passion, desire, anger – “Here I am” –our Fire. On Water day we dare to release, feel grief, and on the last day we can dive into Air – gratitude, celebration, and flight, exploring our warriorship as women.
Rather than one or some leading and others following, we spend time together each day sensing in ourselves what we need at this time – then welcoming others to share in that space. We are showing up with our struggles, inquiries, edges, needs, and inviting others to join us in that.
We will be based in the beautiful green space of the Provence, where we can draw from and connect to the elements common to us and offer what we know across beliefs and cultures. We will work with daily practices that welcome our bodies and hearts into the centre with us, inviting women to bring their gifts and contribute into what unfolds.
We invite women who are prepared to step in and co-create this gathering with us, to result in ever widening circles of women impacting positively on our selves, our city, this beautiful land, the continent of Europe, and our Earth.
Spring equinox is a time to go inward before coming out strong for the new season.
Join us for a conscious start, expanding into spring, a gentle stretching in anticipation of a new summer’s coming.
What are the questions?
How can we move with “inner lightness” through whatever is?
How can we do the inner work necessary to bring healing into the world?
How can we support each other?
Beginning on Saturday afternoon 20th of June at 16.00h and ending on Wednesday afternoon at 16.00h with the possibility of a community building activity in the village of Eygalières
