Enter the Mystery –
Snake Medicine for our Times- an intimate retreat for transformation, restoration & renewal
Immerse in snake medicine this Samhain/ Halloween as a remedy for our times.
Many of us have had our lives turned inside out – and the shake-up isn’t over yet. As we navigate new terrain, let us harness the potency of snake medicine and allow it to guide us to the new.
The snake is a powerful symbol of transformation and snake medicine speaks volumes about our primal ability to heal, renew and restore. From these master teachers, we can learn how to shed old layers, outworn beliefs, patterns, trauma and ways of being:
“Shed what no longer serves you and receive the goodness that is aching to find you…”
During the retreat, we’ll connect with the magic of snake medicine through many forms including movement, breathwork & shamanic journeying. Plus temple and Samhain-inspired practises.
There is also time to rest and restore energy – with the sea close by, sauna and sacred fire.
There’s delicious food and brews throughout for deep nourishment.
Each person will receive a tailored ritual, envisioned and inspired by an inner journey and supported by the energy field of the group. It can comprise of powerful tools such as a fire massage, needle ritual, affirming touch, etc.
As we are a small group, we can hone in on what’s needed for each one, as we usher in transformation at this potent time.The teachings of the snake priestess temples of ancient Greece is the backbone of this deep work.
Eva and Bayari bring their combined love of snakes and The Temple, plus their skills, knowledge, holding and magic to this special retreat.
Join in the magic and mystery!
