A women’s circle in which touch and tenderness are central. Tantric (massage) exercises with sisters united.
Your needs as a woman, are the focus of this temple. Being physically naked is welcome, but certainly not a must. Being physically naked can be a very empowering way to expose yourself (literally) and to learn how to love your body, even the “difficult” parts.
Sometimes, it may also be necessary not to expose yourself for a moment, but to wrap yourself in blankets. This is all welcome!
For this Temple experience with tantra or massage is not needed. Madelief will guide you step by step and together with the group and the safe setting that is created together, we carry ourselves and each other.
You are invited to step in this ceremonial space with your sisters. Into a Ceremony of honoring your own body on a deeper level and celebrate it’s story and beauty.
A full day of diving deeper into the connection, or dis-connection. All is welcome, with the spirit of our body.
Through meditation and visualization, we will connect to the story which our body is trying to tell us. What images and symbols come up? What hurts? What feels good? What does your body need? We will bring this in, into the circle of women and the safe, sacred space we create together on this day.
This journey of loving our body and ourselves on a deeper level will be done through painting, making INTUITIVE ART on each other.
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. It was also the place to share wisdom, from mother to daughter, sister to sister, tears, grief and death.
You are invited into the ”modern” red tent and sacred space we will create together during this ceremony.
During the ceremony, Madelief will take you on journey through Ancestor ritual in which you can face the things in your lineage that do not feed and fit you anymore, but also make a deeper connection with your wise elders, and the wisdom they have for you, which is already alive inside of you.
