INIPI / Temazcal / Sweatlodge Ceremony - Ana Pomar with fire keeper Mama Sara
Welcome to the Womb of Mother Earth. We enter this ancient temple to sweat, to sing, to pray. Inside, we surrender to be healed by the most ancient spirits: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Honouring the Native American traditions we are held and healed by subtle forces. Here we can feel supported by the embrace of the Earth to let go of those loads we don't need to carry anymore. We can dive deep inside ourselves and meet those waters in our being where the pains and traumas are held, and receive healing. We may ask and receive guidance, to find purpose. We can find the strength to make those life choices so we can live life from our true potential. This is a truly magical ancient temple, ancient ceremony. The wise old ones say that it comes from the Stars, and it helps us remember our way back home. With the medicine of the hot stones, we enter that subtle space of awareness where somehow what is false melts away from us, and we naturally become more truthful, in the light and in the shadows, learning to weave a real sisterhood, of radical love and sacred vulnerability, for a world where our hearts are safe to care and to love.
Circle talk about the Moon Time – Ana Pomar, Mama Sara and Marissa
Our Womb as the central portal of Gaia's wisdom: in this circular talk we will learn about the importance our menstrual blood, with the intention of reclaiming suppressed wisdom of women's health and well being. By noticing our shifts and changes within the cycle, we can learn to plan our time to our best potential, respecting the different phases we go through. By staying more aware of the relation of the Earth, the Moon and our wombs we can make sense of our natural rhythm and we can listen to Earth's guidance more clearly, strengthening our intuition and natural knowledge. This talk will also be very precious for those women that, for physical or emotional reasons haven't been bleeding, for our intention for this time is to deeply connect with the “brain” that is our womb.
Earth Offering – Ana Pomar, Mama Sara and Marissa
Understanding the importance of the ancient tecnology of Offering / Ofrenda, with the genuine wish from our hearts to say thank you to our Mother Earth for everything she provides, we give back to the one who has always given us all we have. Every woman is welcome to bring some seeds to add to this offering, some chocolate, tobacco, some special water... We will create a beautiful mandala from nature elements and sing songs to our Mother Earth, giving thanks and praying for life to prevail on Earth and for a good life for the new generations to come.
Women of the Elements - Sacred Dance Celebration with Mama Sara
Through our bodies, we express fire, water, earth and air, or simply nature... nature that we belong to and that makes us vibrate, pulse, evolve or simply be. Dancing we experience nature as the root of the movement. Dance becomes a tool of nature's self expression.
In this dance journey guided by Sara, we consciously invite the Elements to guide us into a field of awareness of how we exist within this body, re awakening and recognizing the qualities of body movement, in the dance of daily life.
Holy fire, sacred Cacao and dancing the Dance of Celebration
A cacao ceremony in the tipi will open your heart and give you space to grow, to realize and to give thanks for the truth. We will dance together and end our work together on Sunday with a festive brunch in the garden. Viva la Vida!
