Event description

Description

"Join with the Goddess and God, who are making love in every particle of creation."

Treat yourself to a nourishing Valentine's Retreat rooted in the yoga of love, relating and intimacy, designed to still the mind, bliss-out your body, open your heart and foster authentic connection.

This isn't about making out, it's about cultivating the ecstatic, expansive feeling of inner-sourced, embodied love that arises when we commune soul to soul and marry flesh and spirit.

The Making Love Retreat welcomes Every Body - singles, couples & all genders - into a deeper experience of love that originates with your Self, yet is amplified in a group.

We won't be getting naked and there's no sex involved, but you will be invited to show up authentically and we will be doing some exercises in groups & pairs, as well simple practices to awaken your sexual energy (also known as kundalini, Shakti or life-force).

The tantric body-mind practices we'll be exploring over our 3 days together include:

* conscious movement & dance
* kundalini yoga
* meditation (both still & dynamic)
* breath-work
* mantra and more

with the addition of:

* time to share in circle or small groups,
* cacao chai & chanting to open the heart on Valentine's night
* a fire ceremony & ecstatic dance on Saturday night, with
* a specially created Venus vibrational medicine to fill our hearts, bodies & souls with the energy of LOVE ♥
* daily card readings with alchemist & channel, Bayari
* delicious veggie food served buffet style in our own private dining area
* deluxe ensuite accommodation

Our emphasis will be upon embodied awareness, the union of masculine and feminine energies and all of life as an ecstatic making love!

You will be held in a safe, nurturing space of loving presence, facilitated by Priestess of Love, Shakti Sundari, and Sacred Alchemist, Bayari Lou Beegan. Vic Marshall is our mystical Fire Shiva.

At a time of year, when many of us are still emerging from the dark of winter, Valentine's Day is a welcome mid-point between Imbolc & Ostara, that invites us to celebrate love in all its forms.

For us, love isn't just something we share with a romantic partner or express once a year, it's a quality we seek to embody continuously, so that it may imbue our lives, work and every relationship.

And yet we also recognise February 14th and our Retreat as an opportunity to focus on love and call together those who wish to:

* feel more in love with themselves & life
* spend this weekend in heart-centred community
* call in a healthy, nourishing relationship
* share special time with their partner
* learn techniques for deepening in intimacy & self-love
* immerse themselves in the healing rural energy of Glastonbury

This Retreat will also appeal to those wishing to enrich their practice in:

* meditation
* yoga
* breath-work
* mantra
* tantra
* dance
* full-bodied spirituality
* creative self-expression
* inner union

as we draw inspiration from the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra - an ancient tantric text written as a dialogue between Shiva (the Divine Masculine) and Shakti (the Divine Feminine) and its translation into The Radiance Sutras by Lorin Roche, which invites us to:

"Join with the Goddess and God, who are making love in every particle of creation."

Those who wish to cultivate self-love and/or call in love will find their hearts soothed and their body-mind activated by the experience of inner union.

This is the best place from which to magnetise not only sacred relationship, but abundance in all forms.

Those already in partnership will reap the benefits of dedicated time together to connect in a deep, true, subtle way, that will enhance their intimacy on all levels.

As a group, we will share in the open-hearted, joyful vibration of loving community, that will stay with us as a potent healing and blessing force for many months to come.
