Celebration of the Feminine
A Retreat for Women to melt into Sisterhood
No Make Up. No Shame. Simply Sharing Bliss and Love.
21st – 25th September 2017
Yoga | Tantra | Dance | Singing | Meditation | Breathwork
Do you long for the joy of being grounded in nature?
Do you want to acquire better habits and patterns to achieve something greater for the mind, body & spirit?
Do you want to realize true balance in your life?
Would you like to experience clarity through stillness?
Beyond our limitation and beliefs. A meeting from heart to heart. Sharing from within. No competition. No masks, no pretending to be something. Let’s just simply be. Together. Alone. Raw. Vulnerable.
During those 3 days you’ll have the opportunity to discover more about yourself. But what does that actually mean? Who are we really ? The question is simple and yet so profoundly deep. We are everything. And we are more then our beliefs. We grow up with labels, judgement, shoulds and shouldnt’s, a definition of the self from the outside. A label of who and what a woman should be.
In our space, the space we create together, we want to look within. Beyond our belief system and conditioning and when we meet in our own presence only love can exist. The sharings of those days are based on techniques to let go of the masks that keep us away from our true self. Techniques to shake off the conditioning. One big part of it is the breath and the connection to the body. We will use the body in all kinds of forms, dancing, with yoga, in stillness and we will connect to the power of the breath, through simple exercises and deeper releases in rebirthing breathwork.
This is a way to learn to feel what is alive in you, to connect with feelings and accept that they are just part of the wheel of life. Being our own observer, not to take us too serious and to celebrate who we are. We will have loooots of fun, we will dance, sing, meditate, connect, share, laugh, play and hopefully find a space within ourselves that experiences the love, the love that is always there for us.
The space is limited to 12 women to keep it safe and intimate.
We are in this wonderful place called Macara, very secluded, out in the nature, with an amazing view over the fields. Sometimes you can even see the Pyrenees. Our practise will be either outside under the beautiful trees or in the yurt behind the house.
In the house there are 7 rooms. You will share a room with a beautiful sister. Either in a triple or double room. All rooms a beautifully equipped in retro style and offer a warm atmosphere. To read more about the place please check out the website of our host: macara-unzent.com
Wifi is available.
Pick up and drop off from the airport Toulouse are included in the retreat fee.
We love food and we love you. Food shall be nourishing and healthy. With the host we arrange to have as much organic and local food as possible. We provide a big brunch in the mornings and some snacks during the break. In the evenings a beautiful vegetarian meal will be created with lots of love. We happily make arrangements for gluten free and dairy free diet requests. For anything else please contact us.

About this retreat:
We want you to feel safe and at home, to be able to try something new and explore the depth of the healing energy through breath, sound and movement.
We have created a beautiful program that allows you to explore different energies such as; gaining knowledge and understanding about the importance of our inner Chakra system. When we understand our energy levels and the functions of the different chakras, our mind can relax and we can drop deeper into the state of being.
Breath is our life energy, our prana, it nourishes our cells everyday, it keeps us alive. In this retreat you will explore different ways of how to use breathwork to become more present in the body and therefore in life. In the mornings we will integrate breathing techniques into the Meditation and Yoga practises, which are suitable for beginners and advanced practicioners.
Breathwork enables us to go deeper into our inner being. In Breathwork Ceremonies we can learn how to free ourselves from old beliefs, overcome birth traumas, learn more about our own personal law and become more conscious and alive with our breath. We integrate the power of affirmations, the 5 emotions and various practical exercises to deepen the connection to ourselves and others.
You will leave with simple tools which allow you to connect with your true self, bringing you into a deeper state of happiness.
The power of vibration and the power of sound are integral vitality tools that we will share with you. We are vibration and we are sound. How do you feel when you listen to the ocean, to the birds, to the wind or when you hear a baby cry? Do you remember that special song, that made your heart smile? Together we will explore the science of sound and in turn discover much more about ourselves.
On this retreat you will have the chance to sing, to explore sound, to find the magic of the healing powers of music. You don’t have to be a singer or need any experience. Simply come with open ears and an open heart willing to play and explore the power of sound!
We also want to celebrate with you. We all naturally contribute to this beautiful coming together in nature, something which is definitely worth celebrating! There will be time to relax by the pool, nourish our bodies with amazing food and dance into ecstasy with heart touching music. On fullmoon we’ll gather for a beautiful cacao ceremony.
We do not serve any alcohol and also ask you to be free of alcohol and drugs for your stay with us.

In just 5 days you will discover many benefits of the breath, and I promise you, you will feel a difference.

Kundalini Yoga is a form of traditional Hatha Yoga. It is a Yoga practice with the use of the breath, some-times we hold the breath in different postures and that creates a lot of energy. We use Bhandas (locks) that bring a lot of benefits, and help us to move stagnant energy in the body. Kundalini yoga is mainly used to awaken an energy inside of us, the clear energy channels and brings us out of the mind into a state of meditation. It is not a stretchy dynamic class or very physical, even though the physical body will also benefit of the practices.
