MushWomb: Rejuvenation Retreat
A space for the feminine to Reclaim, Re-wild, & Remember
Do you feel like it’s time for some deeply nourishing self-care?
The MushWomb Retreat is an opportunity to reclaim your wild feminine through five days of self-care for cycles, plant & fungal education, and ceremony in the Mayan Highlands of Guatemala.
We are creating a safe container for womb-carriers to gather together in sacred space to remember and connect deeper to our bodies while honoring and learning from our plant & fungal allies. This is an opportunity to shed old skin and re-emerge refreshed and ready to offer your gifts to the world.
Sometimes rebelling comes through the sacred pause. The MushWomb Rejuvenation Retreat is curated for you to take that pause and allow the natural re-calibration that comes as a result.
Come together in sisterhood to heal and transform💕
RELAX, INSPIRE AND CONNECT IN PARADISE
Tzununa, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
Not a Course,
This is the moment to soften into your authentic self. Tap into your embodiment and emerge anew, ready to share your empowered wisdom with the world.
Make Authentic Connections
Deepen your relationship to sisterhood to heal and transform the sister wound.
We are located in the Guatemalan Highlands, the heartland of ancient Mayan Civilization. You will re-connect to your wild-self through experiencing the magic of Lake Atitlan.
Nourishing food, yoga, nature walks, sauna, breathwork, and meditation are some of the holistic lifestyle elements that help to keep our inner and outer space activated.
What You Will Receive
A heavenly pause to give back to yourself.
Rebel womb-an, are you craving
a moment out of time?
As womb-carriers especially we know how important it is to live a life in service to the whole. But there is no way we can show up fully when we are run-down, ragged, and burnt-out.
So many of us live life in overdrive. When we are rested and nourished our nervous systems get a break and we have the energy for our full-authenticity to overflow into the world.
In many cultures life is so fast paced that rest and relaxation are forms of protest. When we rest and nourish we reclaim our energy and power. We reclaim our birthright to pleasurable embodied experience, and stop the cycle of acting like our bodies are machines.
We have created the MushWomb Retreat for you to come and bask in the beauty of these lands, and have the space to do the essential tending of your mind, body and spirit.
What is MushWOMB Consciousness?
The mushWOMB is the point of creation (quality of consciousness) that originates within the entheogenic realms and is powered by the gifts of our womb to generate life in our world ✨
The mushWOMB consciousness expresses the lived intersection of cyclical and psychedelic ways of being. It honors the womb as the originator of human life and recognizes the value of descending into the body and the earth for wisdom.
Within mushWOMB education and healing, people can experience the origin of life’s most profound questions and find liberation for every generation before and the ones to come. Asé.
