Welcome to Sacred Womb

In ancient times, women gathered to support each other through transitions and challenges in life. It was understood that the mysteries of feminine creation were directly linked to the vibrations of the Earth.

Once again women are rising all over the world, to claim their power and to stand together in sisterhood.

Sacred Womb is a part of this movement and we wish for it to become a strong platform for all women to gather in sacredness and remembrance. A space to remember who we are, where we came from and where we are going.

Join us from May 24th to May 28th 2023

Is this for me?

Answer this simple question, am I a woman?
If your answer is yes, our answer is YES!

Sacred Womb strives to create a space where each and every woman feels welcome, seen and heard. Regardless of age, skin colour, belief system, religion or nationality. We wish to give every woman something they can take into their lives at home. You are welcome, whether you are shy or wild, introvert or outgoing, brand new to this or used to it. All sisters, mothers, grandmothers, daughters and friends! 

This space offers us a chance to investigate how to “be” women in this world, today. Women function differently to men. We have our cycles and we are directly connected to the vibrations of the Earth. We feel Her, even if we are not aware of it. When we come to honour our cyclical nature and understand ourselves and each other on a deeper level as nature beings, we become more relaxed, vibrant, healthy and radiant. We discover how to create our lives without exhausting our resources. In this way we will be able to support our brothers, lovers, children and families, friends and communities, and become a true contribution. We become a part of the solution in this world.

Rite of Passage

A “Rite” is a ritual process that is held by the wisdom of tradition and sacred alchemy. All indigenous and aboriginal cultures have rites. It is only in the Western societies that we have allowed our rites to be taken away or be replaced by empty, repetitive patterns which rarely bare the meaning and strength of the ancient traditions.

“Passage” means leaving something old and moving on to something new.

A Rite of Passage is a ceremony where we consciously leave behind the old as we enter the new. In a sense, we die to that which we have been so that we can become what we were meant to be – a more mature, aware and awake version of ourselves.

Whatever the Rite, it will always bring us learning and maturity. Transformation. Growth and change. And no matter how much we think that we are alone, we never really are. Many are going through the same transition.

What if we consider the times we live in, a collective Rite of Passage? In order for us to learn from the past, consciously work through the shadows that we are facing, and create a future from a new awareness of our woman-ness, our vulnerabilities and also our strengths?

This year, we wish to honour this possibility by creating space for conscious transition.

We welcome all women, of all ages, backgrounds and belief systems, just like every year. Our program will offer the now-traditional spaces such as sweat lodge, fire walk, music, along with workshops around the menstrual cycle, hormonal balance, and of course yoga, dance, creative processes, nature walks, and much more.
