Sisters of the Moon

April 7, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - April 11, 2016 @ 10:00 am

Sisters of the Moon - Women's Workshop - Upward Spirals

 

 

Course Description:
The moon has long been a beacon of the divine feminine. A symbol of goddesses, light, wisdom, sister-mother-grandmotherhood, intuition and inner power. In modern society, however, we’ve lost this innate connection to all that the moon represents, and to our birthright as women. We’ve minimized our womanhood to superficial portrayals of who we really are, and often found ourselves deflated in a largely masculine dominated world. This workshop is about reconnecting to the power of the feminine and embodying what it’s means to be a woman- body, mind and soul. Through yoga, meditation, ritual and ceremony we will explore our right side brain- intuition, creativity, metaphor, wisdom, empathy, dreams, art and synthesis- and discover each for ourselves what our femininity means, both individually and collectively. With the support of a soulful community of sisterhood, we will reject norms of “right” and “wrong”, and whole heartedly embrace what is true, authentic and meaningful to each of us.
