The Sessions  

TANTRIC TEMPLES

 

The whole weekend is a Temple, but we will have dedicated Bliss Temples filled with practices from the Tradtionial Tantric lineage of Kashmiri Shaivism & other sources.

 

Temples were places to come to, to connect to the Divine. To tap into that which is bigger than the Personal self. To meet with God & the Goddess. In these Temples we will connect not with a Divine God /Goddess out there & separate, but The Divine that lies within you. The Divine that is you.

 

The Bliss Temple Sessions are spaces of deep remembrance of your Sacred Embodiment.

 

 

TANTRIC SHAMANIC BREATHWORK

 

Smooth, slow sense-full movement to activate the body, preparing every cell in your body to drink in the rich prana from the Breathwork. The Conscious Breathwork practice consists of active circular breathing and breath retention. A powerful combination to nourish, revive, and reconnect.

 

The practice releases the natural DMT within the body offering profound release, IN-sight and states of Bliss. It can also offer you powerful release both emotional and/or physical.

 

BLUE LOTUS CEREMONY  

 

On Saturday evening we will journey with a Blue Lotus & Rose Ceremony. A small dose of Medicinal mushrooms will also be available if you so choose. The focus of this Temple is on awakening our senses to subtle. 

Please feel free to ask any and all questions.

What People Say about the Retreat 

Alex created a nest of pure acceptance and love. From the moment I arrived it was like being enveloped in the purest, most comforting white light. She gave us a safe space to be our true, authentic selves. A place where all of us was welcomed, “the good, the bad and the ugly”. Spending the weekend with Alex and all the other remarkably wonderful women was the best gift I ever gave myself. I would do it all again in a heartbeat. - Bronwyn

 

If you are looking for reconnection with your deep self and the universe, this is the work to do! Alex’s teachings are profound and will leave you wanting more and feeling fulfilled. Deep gratitude xxx - Lane

 

I was privileged enough to attend Alex’s Mystic Women’s Retreat recently - it was simply outstanding. 

Alex and her lovely side kick Margaux held such a safe container for us all. I felt like a Goddess and at home from the minute she opened the door for me. So much love, care and detail went into all aspects of the retreat. 

I left feeling empowered, enriched and a little fatter (thanks to the scrumptious food that Sarah prepared for us).

I will without a doubt attend another and other events hosted by Alex. 

THANK YOU ALEX! - Lauren

 

My first mystic women retreat was magical in every way. It opened up all my senses and deepened my devotion to the eternal present moment - regardless of how it shows up. So much gratitude to all the divine feminine teachers (incl. mushrooms and roses). I highly recommend joining the circle🌹 - Mira

 

“The Mystic Women Retreat was just life changing! From the moment we stepped through the doors of this magnificent luxury villa we were treated like goddesses and it became our sanctuary for the long weekend. Sarah who was our food alchemist spoilt us with all her home-made deliciousness of the most incredible dishes I have ever tasted. The workshops were just on another level, the journey of self-discovery and connection to ourselves as well as to the other beautiful souls that I had the privilege of connecting with, was just so profound.

 

I walked away from the weekend with my heart bursting with self-love, love for others, love for the universe and I am truly grateful to Alex and her incredible team (Maux and Sarah) for holding a safe and loving space for us all and for making this weekend such a memorable, deeply rooted experience that will forever be imprinted in my heart and soul.” - Carla

 

Alex's way of holding the space at The Mystic Woman's retreat was true to the cthonic doctrines of the sacred feminine - accessible and both deeply held in ritual and the full humanness of us all. What I appreciated so greatly is the way Alex turns up in her full incarnation to weave with us. This was not a top-down approach of patriarchal guru culture, or an attempt at transcendence, but a weaving of our full selves. It made sense that it was in a house (well, a villa) and not some far removed or stoic monestary location.

 

Her holding was a model of our sacred embodiment in the every day, one where we can desire, can luxuriate, can open ourselves to pleasure, and access the sacred mystery of it. The time and the richness of the practices, and the sacredness with which they were held really opened me to the tangible abundance of the space, of life, my body, the location, and delicious and nourishing food (prepared by Sarah with utmost love). Thank you Alex, thank you Margaux, thank you Sarah for your rich and generous weavings together.
