Women's Sexual Cycles South Africa November 2014

   Entering the Wisdom of Woman’s Sexual Cycles
With Keriesa Botha and Shakti Malan

2 – 7 November 2014
Temenos Retreat Center, Mc Gregor, South Africa

This 6-day retreat offers a small group of women a profound and exclusive space to enter deeper into our sexuality and to tap the wisdom of our cyclical sexual nature under the guidance of two highly experienced facilitators.    

As women we are cyclical beings – we wax and wane like the moon, we have high tides and low tides like the sea.  The mystery of woman’s sexuality is that it is cyclical in nature and intimately influenced by the ebb and flow of  our menstrual cycles.    

During each cycle of the moon, our sexual body transforms through 4 different phases. Each of these four phases is a doorway into a deeper communing with our sexuality, with the essence of who we are, and with life.

In order to enter through these doorways, we are invited to listen to the wisdom of our sexual bodies and get in tune with the knowing that each phase brings. The pre-menstrual phase brings the opportunity to clarify our needs and roots us in our intuition.   Menstruation is a time for opening, softening and listening, deep into the knowing of our bodies.  The follicular and ovulation phases are times to engage in our creativity, feed our imagination  and move into the  fullest expression of ourselves in the world.

Embracing and engaging our feminine cyclical nature skillfully, empowers us to manage our energy and our daily lives with ease and nourishes our sexual expression with  joy and consciousness.

 Imagine listening to your sexual cycle as the inner guidance which keeps your life in balance and in harmony with the rhythms of life.  Imagine learning the skills of nourishing and restoring yourself during each phase of your cycle.  Imagine exploring breath practices that open the sexual body of woman. Imagine experiencing all of this through the rich medium of  process art, free writing, dance, storytelling and embodied practices in the beautiful, nurturing setting of the garden of Temenos Retreat Centre. Imagine having two experienced and dedicated guides initiating you into the wisdom of each gateway in your sexual cycle as woman.  This is what this retreat offers you.

During the retreat, we will

·      Learn about the sexual cycles of women
·      Understand how to nourish each phase of your cycle
·        Be guided in subtle movement and breath practices that open the sexual body of woman
·      Explore our own experience through art,  free writing ,  dance and story telling
·      Learn from each other’s life experiences through sharing in sisterhood circles.
·      Be nourished by the exquisite garden of Temenos.
