SAMHAIN WOMENS GATHERING
– Connection to the Ancestor Wisdom –
Dear beloved woman,
I invite you, to step into this ceremonial space with yourself and other women.
In the old ancient traditions women gathered with Full and New moon in a Red tent. Here, they shared their stories, bleed together, gave birth together, danced and celebrated life. But it was also the place to share wisdom, from mother to daughter, sister to sister, tears, grief and death.
I invite you into the our ”modern” red tent and sacred space.
The Samhain an ancient Celtic fest that’s celebrated on 31th of October, and marks the the end of harvest time. Already in the whole month of October, her energy moves through us, as the dark settles in and the light disappears slowly, there is a sense of turning. The solar energy (masculine energy) is recoiling ans we begin now to spiral inward once again. This is a return to the feminine and shadow riches. The veils between our world and the one from the spirits and our ancestors is now the most transparent, and we can make contact more easily with our inner wisdom and the wisdom of the ones that came before us, our ancestors.
During this night I will take you on an ancestor ritual in which we can face the things in our lineage that do not feed and fit us anymore, but also make a deeper connection with your wise elders, and the wisdom they have for you, that’s is already alive inside you.
MamaLeaf, is the platform for women work and safe spaces I, Madelief, created for and with women; to be, transition, shed skins, connect, grow, unfold and descend.
I have been hosting women circles with full and new moon for the past 4 years, and I feel this is one of the most magical things I have experienced in this life. Besides that I host, together with my life partner Kjell, through our platform Pantra, true intimacy workshops and soul circles. I have a background in Art Therapy, I work as an illustrator (Liefwerk) and I also facilitate Womb Support Sessions.
Nowadays, I try to combine these powers more and more, so that the work I do, becomes a mix of Ancient Rituals, Raw and Radical honesty, true Intimacy, connection within community and art expression.
