rewilding the feminine retreat - portugal

A women’s weekend retreat in Central Portugal

You are invited to join us. Step into your fullest soul aligned, heart centred self. A women’s weekend retreat, coinciding with the June’s full Moon, as the Europeans call it the Rose Moon. This restorative weekend retreat will help you find a sense of balance. A chance to pause, reflect and connect back to the fullest essence of you.

Held at the Rainbow Spiritual Lodge, set in the breathtaking Serra da Estrela Natural Park, Portugal,  surrounded by stunning mountains and witness amazing sunsets, and awesome night skies (with no light pollution).

Rewilding is not simply about connecting with nature. It’s about tapping into the full spectrum of your own human nature and accessing the deep, sacred feminine power that you hold within. Rewilding is to return, a reclaiming of who you really are

We live in a world that does not recognise the ebb and flow of women’s energies throughout her monthly cycle. We’re expected to be the same, day in, day out, when simply said, we are not. It’s time to reclaim this sacred knowledge as a powerful gateway to our feminine power. The woman of today has been separated from her wild self. She is no longer connected to her instinctive essence and doesn’t recognise her own strength, freedom, and value.

One of the best ways to re-wild the feminine is to connect to our inner seasons. The menstrual cycle is a vital and vitalising system in the female body, and many of us are limited and distorted in our respect and understanding of this process. Few women know their cycle’s physiology, and many do not see it as an integral part of their health and well-being, let alone as a potential guide to emotional and spiritual empowerment. Now is the time to embrace the female life process of menarche, the menstrual cycle, menopause and the mature years, uniting womb, head, and heart.

If you listen closely to the gentle, unending rhythms, you will hear them as an invitation to come back to where you belong…

  • Feel more confidence
  • Feel empowered
  • Discover your purpose and meaning in life
  • Discovering inner passion and soul gifts
  • Heal core wounds, trauma, and grief
  • Learn how to align with your cycle
  • Address your health and well-being
  • Build powerful self-care foundations
  • Express yourself authentically
  • Embrace your body, your moods, your feelings
  • Feel more connected to Mother Earth

The weekend will also involve regular movement using Qoya, which is a movement system based on the idea that through movement, we remember. We remember how to trust the truth in our body as our sacred guide to embody our soul and live a life aligned with our truth by following our intuition. We remember our essence is wise, wild and free. Wise, wild and free also draws reference to the movement from that we practice.

  • Wise: the wisdom of the body that we access once we get out of our heads a little.
  • Wild: the creative expression in dance
  • Free: expanding our capacity to enjoy our bodies through movement, and to move in a way that feels good to us, and isn’t about how the movement looks.
