"Remembering Goddess" Women's Weekend Retreat
Presented by Andrea Pickford
An opportunity to try out & reflect on all things Goddess, decide how (or even if) you might include these in your own life, and honour the goddess aspects you already embody.
Please note that the venue is in LEVIN.
The ‘Remembering Goddess’ retreat is an opportunity to enjoy great company, food and surroundings as you remember the Goddess (or you as Goddess) and her strength, creativity, fertility, intuition, fairness and vision; how she knew what she stood for and how to act even in the face of fear…. you get to take away skills, experiences and practical ideas that re-create and nurture your own Goddess aspects. Plus you can refresh some of your intuitive and spiritual skills, all in a supportive environment away from the demands of your everyday life.
The big difference this year, is that the retreat is non-residential. This year, you can travel to and from home each day (and sleep in your own warm comfy bed), or stay in Levin with a friend, or at a motel. If you choose to stay away from home, you will have to make your own plans as the Retreat price does not include accommodation.
All your food is catered so no food prep, no cooking, and only a few plates and cups to wash. A generous amount of time has been allowed for the breaks and meals, so that you have time to reflect on what you’ve heard and enjoy each other’s company, all in the beautiful surroundings of Thompson House.
Meals/food includes morning and afternoon teas and lunch on both days, plus a light evening meal on Saturday.
And there’s yoga! Guest Presenter Andrea Nicholls is also a yoga teacher, and she will run several sessions of Chair Yoga over the two days. With this kind of yoga, we’ll all use our chair as a support for some of the poses. While Andrea N takes her yoga seriously, she has a ready sense of humour and you can expect quite a few giggles.
Please be assured that the yoga is not a competition to see who is the most bendy and flexible, or the most slim (thank goodness).
The Retreat runs from 9.30am Saturday October 28 until 4pm Sunday October 29, 2017.
