Rebel womb-an, this is your time to receive‚Äč

Ambrosia is an opportunity for you to imbibe in the nectar of all that it means to have a female form. In this journey of initiation you will be held in sacred space; guided by healing lands, the wisdom of the blood mysteries, and the sacred earth medicines.

Each day will be filled with opportunities to cultivate rich communication with the intelligence of your body through yoga, movement, and education. Through classes, conversations and connections we will weave the mycelial womb web and uncover the power of pleasure, play and intimacy with the web of life.

Heart of the Rose Eco-Retreat Centre

‚ÄúThe Legends. This area is ripe with the legends of the life of Mary Magdalene, who, as the story goes, built a community here in this valley after fleeing persecution in Jerusalem. The Bugarach mountain has been excavated in search of her body and sacred relics. The area is also extensively written about in Anna, The Voice of the Magdalenes, a channeled work by Claire Heartsong. All we know is what we feel here; Being on this land causes quantum shifts and deep healing to unfold. Bugarach is also the historical and spiritual home of the Cathars, the whole region holds an ancient and palpable magic.‚Ä̬†
