This retreat will focus on all aspects of pregnancy. The spiritual, mental and physical. It will connect you to the source of our strength within and that comes from the mother of all, earth. Surrounding ourselves with other pregnant sisters and deepening the understanding of our feminine being.

As a woman the time of incarnation to motherhood is one of the most sacred and impactful initiations in life. It is where we meet ourselves in our highest form. What happens inside our bodies during pregnancy, birth and the evolution of our souls, is sometimes hard to understand with our minds. When we let it, it is when our feminine power ultimately comes to life. It is when we leave the juvenile and enter into our essence of motherhood. In most ancient cultures women receive spiritual guidance, tools and practices in their first 20-30 years as they get ready to transform into motherhood. In Western cultures we might not and often put our main focus on the medical, physical and material. But there is more…

In order to truly connect to our higher selves, inner strength, and a grounded connection to the earth we need to ensure we are balanced and ready to embody our full potential as nurturing birthing mothers. It requires us to take responsibility to look inside and love ourselves unconditionally, so we can walk our path confidently.

The time of pregnancy and the first years after birth are when the fundamentals of your child will absorb all impulses and instructions for their and your path in life. Taking the time for yourself to rest, learn, prepare and go within will not only benefit you in your life as an upcoming mother in a big way, but many generations to come. We women are channels as life givers, and may need guidance, ritual and sisterhood to firm the foundation and trust in our natural feminine force.

The nature of this retreat is to truly connect to your body, baby, mother earth and the period of life you are in. We will create a sacred space, with other pregnant sisters, where you can step in a container and dive deep into the transformation that is going on already.

We will facilitate rituals to embody your feminine power, to guide you towards harmonious energetic, physiologic birthing and post partum period.

This retreat is designed to enhance confidence and a relaxed joyful state for your upcoming birth and transformation as a woman. You will feel motivated to continue taking care of your body, mind & soul by bringing more ritual and practice into your life. You will feel confident, empowered and ready to walk your path, your way.

During our 5 days together we will lovingly guide you through the following topics and practices

  • Feminine values & our mothers
  • Breath & energy work
  • Sacred belly dance
  • Blessing ceremony
  • Alter work, ritual and earth offering
  • Nurturing the mother in you (energetically, physically, emotionally)
  • Physiological birth & practical birthing protocol information (you will not need a birthing course after this retreat)
  • Meditation
  • Yoga

Relaxation
Enjoy plenty of free time with yourself, your baby or to connect to other sisters. There is designated time to take naps, walk in nature, enjoy a swim, read a book or have a (pregnancy)massage.

Food and stay
During our stay everything will be taken care of. We will all enjoy a private stay in our beautifully designed single rooms. In room WIFI and Tv’s are not available, so you are able to fully focus on your integration. Daily healthy, vegetarian and organic meals will be served and snacks, fruits, tea and water will be available throughout the day.
