“There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water.
And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves.
For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.”
“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
attributed to an unnamed Hopi elder Hopi Nation Oraibi, Arizona.
We are gathering to “let go of the shore” and see who is in the flow of the river with us, trusting in the flow and in our unity as women to stay afloat in the rapids. Our buoyancy will be derived from deep relaxation and from being aware of what nourishes us.
The resources we will draw from will include sisterhood, relaxation, soulful conversation, Dances of Universal Peace, creativity, spiritual practices, massage, Soulwork, ritual and astrology.
We will start with supper on Friday evening and end with lunch on Sunday. All meals will be vegetarian with a GF option.
Cost: £200. £174 of this is to cover the costs of retreat and the remaining £26 will go towards bursaries for women in financial need. Jilani and Darvesha are not receiving any payment. There will be opportunity to add voluntary Dana for additional bursaries and payment for leaders.
Registration by September 21st please!
