Women's Retreat Denmark : The Sacred Art and Practice of Divine Embodiment Strandgaarden Retreat, Helgenæs
We, Destini Broom, Marianne Rommelhoff, and Ginda Hirslund invite you to join us for a weekend in the Art and Practice of Divine Embodiment.
During this weekend of sacred play and practice, we will be deepening our trust in the natural awakening to our own divine essence: open and free, pure and joyful, sacred and sensual, intuitive and radiant, unconditionally loving and beautifully creative.
As women, our hearts long to feel a sustained and deepened connection in all things - within our bodies, our relationships, with the earth and vast cosmos, and the ways in which we offer ourselves out into the world.
We yearn to feel this sustained connection to our strength and power, to lasting feelings of love, freedom, joy, kindness and peace towards ourselves, towards all perceived others, in both the day to day moments and throughout all the challenges we experience.
We long to feel deep trust and playfulness with the very sisters we share this walk on the earth with.
While we may have become accustomed to ways of relating that keep us feeling isolated, disconnected, despondent and untrue to our real nature, we are equally craving our movement beyond these habits and patterns.
In our practice together we will be moving beyond our fears and pulling back the layers of misinformation, misunderstandings and misinterpretations of our bodies and ways of being in the world, in order to root ourselves in a trust and certainty that is organically pulsing wisdom from the very centre of our beings.
Through joining together in this sacred context, it is from this place of strengthened connection that we are able to feel, enjoy and play with the powerful energies moving through us.
We become free to live the deeply satisfying lives we are meant to, from a place of exquisite freedom, immense joy, unbounded pleasure and deep gratitude for the dance of life moving us.
All of this is possible, and more, as we open and surrender to the fullness of the divine essence that is our very nature.
Surrounded by the deep nurturing of the hilly Helgenæs peninsula (Headland of Saints) we will spend this time nurturing all parts of ourselves and connecting through embodiment practices, yoga, play, creativity, movement expression, mindfulness, nature immersion and more.
