Grounded Earth Mother: A Retreat

As women, as mothers and as caregivers we offer ourselves up to others and it is as natural as breath. As women and mothers we are connected to the great Mother at a deeply profound level and can sense her discomfort as we would sense it in our loved ones.

Mothers Day is a day for all Mothers to celebrate and to honour their heroic contribution to the family, the personal and the global. Our relentless ability to care for others extends beyond our own front doors to embrace all beings everywhere and, being our nature, we may not fully grasp the scope of our giving. It is who we are and this retreat is about making it our turn. We will honor the Great Mother by connecting to the elements in nature. We will play and accept the gifts of Earth’s energies into our bodies through our feet while ‘Earthing’ and moving through the fresh dewy grass of spring and the sand on the beach. We will immerse as much of our bodies to the river as we each desire and explore movement while setting intention to release energy what we are holding and no longer need.

May is the month of new beginnings for the earth and in simple ceremony we will offer our gratitude for her support in our lives. This may include creating a natural mandala if weather permits or a different creative pursuit if weather suggests.

In this Mothers Day retreat we turn the focus away from others and shine that same light of love back onto ourselves through the simple practice of celebrating ourselves and each other in small yet meaningful ways. This requires a surrender from you, an ability to hand over the reins of care to another so that you can float gently in this place of being nurtured. Though not always recognized as a need, it most definitely is. Give yourself the gift of time and leave this weekend revitalized with a full cup from which to give again.

This retreat includes a 60 minute massage by one of your hosts, Candice Connor RMT or Kathi Ryan RMT, a movement experience,  creativity, embracing nature as the day allows, rest and time to BE, delicious food and shared accommodation.
