Dear ones,

on this beautiful July full moon, I am delighted and deeply honoured to invite you to join and my yogini sister Mischa Varmuza for our Autumn women’s ritual and yoga retreat in Glastonbury: The Feminine Prayer – October 18-20 2019.

When we come together as sisters in truth and love, we experience the sweet medicine of our untamed feminine selves. When we come back to this precious body, rooted upon mama earth, and join together in ritual and prayer, we remember a time when we we free from the illusions of separation, comparison, fear: a field of acceptance and unity. Join us as we ride with Durga Ma to awaken our fearless feminine heart and stand in truth together, supported by the magical lands of Avalon. Through asana, pranayama, meditation, ritual and the plant medicine cacao, we will meet, move, play, nourish, journey, rise, root, remember and celebrate this gift of womanhood.

We will be staying at a beautiful retreat centre just outside of the centre of Glastonbury, nourished by nature and delicious vegetarian food to fuel us as we dive into this magical weekend together.

I am so happy to be collaborating with Mischa for this very special deep dive together into the feminine mysteries and the many beautiful practices we both share around embodiment, empowerment and honouring nature as our great guide and mother. Our friendship traces back many years but our paths truly began to intertwine when she helped me and Ben out in our street food van, while devoting herself to her intensive yoga and nutrition training. Since then we have both voyaged deep into our inner landscapes and what it is to live as an embodied, aware woman in the 21st century, weaving ritual and prayer into rich and ever-transformative personal journeys. Combining her profound yoga knowledge with a sacred space of sisterhood, self-enquiry and beautiful ritual as Samhain approaches, we will harness the immense power of Glastonbury in a magical weekend together.
