About the Event
"Working with the cycles of nature and the cosmos offers us a beautiful opportunity to deepen our connection with ourselves, that we are cyclical beings and mirrors of nature, the moon and the stars." - Sadie
We’re inviting you to join us for a restorative and deeply nourishing session to reset with the wisdom of slowness of Winter’s Yin and the nurturing Cancerian moon as we work deeply with the water element in all it’s beautiful various forms.
The Season -
In the depths of Winter our energy has retreated inwards, the cycles of nature and the ‘water’ element of Winter invite us to hibernate, to reflect and restore so that we may conserve our energies during the Yin phase of the year and reap the rewards come Spring where we feel a sense of renewal and rebirth as we shift to Yang.
The Moon -
The Moon is reaching her peak fullness for our retreat and she falls in the water sign of intuitive Cancer. A sign that connects to our emotional realm. The Cancerian energies are mothering, feminine, nurturing and comforting. We are being invited to look at our self-care from an intuitive space, how we can tend to our emotional realm, this moon may be bringing emotions to the surface for healing and our retreat space will be a safe, nurturing space to allow and invite flow for all healing. The planet that rules cancer is the Moon so it’s extra special to be gathering on the full moon in cancer!
Cold Water Therapy -
We’ll be working literally with the water element in our beautiful location with a lake for cold water swimming. You may be thinking cold water doesn’t seem in alignment with winter and hibernation, but in fact it couldn’t be more in alignment. The cold water assists the body in withdrawing the blood to the body’s core, bringing the energy to the centre of the body and invigorating the whole system for a complete reboot, helping to build the immune system and restoring our energies deep within.
