In these times of extraordinary change the ‘Witch Wound’ is calling to be healed. 

We need our ‘whole souled selves’ to face the many leveled crises presenting themselves.

 

I warmly welcome you to come to the Cae Mabon roundhouse and sit in circle around the sacred fire, to take your place, casting your magical truth & bringing wisdom to the collective cauldron.

Wytch (Dictionary definition)

Noun. wytch (plural wytches) -Obsolete form of witch.

 

Are wytches obsolete?

Or just hidden… in plain sight?

We will explore:

  • healing through group sharing, speaking and witnessing each other's truth.

  • working with the land from an animist & Jungian perspective, being in direct communication, dreaming and visioning with the land.

  • creative arts therapy processing through writing, drawing and voice, using songs and chants to release energetic blocks.

  • engaging in sacred journeying and psyche reflection towards a deeper understanding of your inner world.

  • inviting an ecstatic reclamation of self, held in community and sisterhood.

  • Gestalt embodiment practices to invite grounding, a new depth of knowing and acceptance of your body.

About the retreat

 

This retreat will support you if you long for a deeper connection, knowing and acceptance of yourself and: 

  • you have often felt ‘different,’perhaps separate from other human beings.

  • you have a sense of your intuitive & healing  gifts, but have felt ostracized or shamed in them.

  • you have struggled with female relationships, trusting & connecting cleanly with humans in your life.

  • you have a loving, animist connection with nature and the cosmos as friend, teacher & kin.

  • you feel called to reclaim deep and mystical parts of your soulself- which perhaps, have not felt safe to reveal or share with the world. 

An intimate team of healing and land focused female- practitioners will be there holding space and offering their gifts to the pot.

As well as the psycho-spiritual, animism and expressive-arts processing - we will explore and share ancient wildcrafting skills, working with natural foraged fibers, ancient weaving technologies and working with plants, wild food & medicine.

 

You are welcome to bring your wisdom and knowledge to share in this experience, if you weave/sew/sing or write- there will be space to share your gifts during our time together if you feel called.

 

There will be time for:

-Rest & being with the land solo. 

-Wild swimming (5 mins walk from the camp)

-Walking in the 200 acres of woodland 

-Views of Snowdon

-A hot tub sited right next to the river

-Delicious meals created from locally sourced wholesome and ethical foods

 

All available to support and nourish you as you process.

 

The retreat will conclude with a rite of passage ceremony where you will be witnessed & witness others reclaim 'Wytch'

Come…

Hand to Hand, Heart to Heart, Soul to Soul 

Your gifts matter.

Your place in this ‘web of being’ matters.

Take your place at the wytches hearth.

We will reclaim ‘Wytch’, healer, maverick, creative, woman- reclaiming ourselves, our gifts, our knowing & a deeper sense of ‘sourced’- soul wonder.

 

Healing the connection to our bodies & our place in the world with this beautiful animate earth.

We will commune deeply with the Cae Mabon land, plant, water, fire & mountain beings-

as teacher

friend

& kin.

 

Reconnecting to these ancient practices, the lost indigenous lineage of our ancestors.

Are you hearing a call to heal the witch wound, in you and in the world?
 

As you may know, in the 1400-1700’s the ‘burning times’ cast shadows of fear, terror, pain & trauma over those who dared to remain connected to the land & the deep source magic within nature.

A whisper of ‘wytch’ could mean torture, exile, shame & death - not only for the women- but also partners, family members or other people of any gender who did not ‘fit’ the new faith emerging through Europe.

 

This trauma continued for 300 years and although centuries ago- with what we know about trauma -  the ripples of this still impact women, people & the collective now.

 

In a time of extraordinary change the wytch wound is calling to be healed. 

In this endeavor, we need our ‘whole souled selves’ to face the many leveled crises presenting themselves.

The world's wounds are weeping & resilient people & healers have never been more needed than now.

You Are Needed.

 

It is time to reclaim feminine power & skill.

Grieve what was lost.

Reconnect to a deeper, trusting sisterhood, repairing the ruptures of a disempowered female line as a sacred feminist issue.

 

Whilst honour and healing the sacred masculine, who also resides within the female psyche.

There will be ears and hearts there for you and each other- but not in the same way as within the experience of 1-1 therapy.

There will be an opportunity to continue 1-1 therapy support with Hazel in future if wished as part of the  integration process.
