From that first spark of connection

We grow in our mother’s womb

She is our environment, our habitat for our first few months of life.

We are part of our mother – Until we are born.

Leaving the comfort and known of our mother’s womb in an inevitable part of life’s journey.

The journey out is unknown, arduous and associated with discomfort and pain. Life, health and death are in the balance.

Once out in the world, the cord is cut and we are no longer encompassed by, and part of, our mother.

These very early experiences are part of the earliest formation of the person that we will become – set in place in our psyche before we can consciously have memory of them and yet they are the foundation on top of which the rest of our life has been layered.

This will be a life affirming retreat.

Through meditation and somatic exploration, we retread the journey which lead  to the first separation from our mother, in order to reset the conditioning, understanding and assumptions that became part of us during one of our earliest, most profound and perhaps most fundamental experiences.
