"What better place to find solace than in the company of sisters?"
- Barbara Walker

Welcome home!

For the most part by the time February is through with us, we find ourselves fatigued, drained and uninspired by our monochrome world. It is at this time, as in the tradition of the past 11 years, Gaia’s Womb calls the sister-tribe together for a heartwarming and spirit satisfying, Winter weekend retreat.
We the nurturers, the care-givers, the over-scheduled and the overwhelmed, carve out this niche in time to set aside the mundane and become fully present in our bodies, in the moment, to refresh our minds, rejuvenate our spirits and to renew our connection to Gaia; primordial Mother Earth, who raises our feminine energy. In doing so, we keep each other grounded, supported and affirmed; we become allies and we embrace the strength, inspiration, and comfort, the solace found in that space.
Throughout the weekend and long afterward, we come to know that we are capable of amazing things. We watch as our relationships with other women are changed as we come to realize that we are not alone in our experiences. We find that we stay grounded longer and become stronger and more centered, focused, soft, and fluid, more easily able to go with the flow and meet life’s challenges. Most of all, we relax, and have fun!
On March 1, 2 & 3, 2013, we gather at Dekoven Center, on the shores of Lake Michigan, to connect, share stories and learn. We discover Solace – the most precious treasure of winter. Magic happens when the sister-tribe gathers. Won’t you join us?

SpiritSong Circle at AvalonRose Cottage

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

7-9pm

Avalon Rose Cottage
137 West Main Street
Spencer, MA 01562

In a sacred song circle we will create a community in
song as we practice loving witness of ourselves and one another. The act of being witness to someone’s song is a
great honor. It is a sacred trust. It is a practice of a very special kind of loving, to empower someone to be freely themselves in the moment. As we witness one another a communion of healing and unity is created. Our hearts truly open to each other as we embrace each other’s song.

Kellianna uses guided meditation, chanting, and toning exercises to create a warm, safe space that allows
participants to discover their own unique “essence song.” We will come together in circle to claim our voices,
to heal our bodies and minds and to honor the power of song.

Tuesday evening 7-9pm March 12th Class series cost:
$25.00

In this workshop, Wendy will share with you some of the vocal techniques she uses to create sacred space, and to

lighthearted approach to guide you into a deep and powerful connection with your own Magical Voice.
Kellianna will guide you in the art of SpiritSong, a vocal practice of healing and release. "SpiritSong" is a unique
approach to singing and toning based on a method of "singing without words;" a powerful technique that permits us to reconnect to the most primal form of singing. Also, with creative writing exercises, she will assist you in crafting your very own Medicine Chant, an intentional song for personal healing and growth.

The workshop is suited to anyone following a Spiritual path, regardless of any musical experience.

**Women's Warrior Retreat Workshops and Offerings**

Kellianna Presents:

Ancestral Journey - A Chant Circle dedicated to thousands of generations of Women and their teachings

In the whispering hills of Temenos we gather to sing to the Stones of the Earth. To sing to the Bones. To sing to the Grandmothers. To honor our Maternal line back through time to the very beginning. When we come together to sing in their honor we can hear their call, as they can hear our song...when we sing to the Stones, when we sing to the Bones, when we sing to the Ancestors...

SpiritSong Circle - A vocal workshop to help you discover your very own "Warrior Song".

She rests inside of you, always ready when you need her. She is courage, power, passion and protector.
Using the vocal practice of SpiritSong, Kellianna will guide you on a journey of release and personal discovery as we delve deep down inside of ourselves, acknowledging but not re-living, our wounds and scars, those things that have helped us to be become the Warrior Women that we are today, strong loving and resilient. We delve deep down inside and we claim her. And then we give her voice. And then we sing her song. She, that Warrior inside each of us, will break out with a song of undeniable power and
individuality. Be it a battle cry or lullaby, we will sing our Warrior Song.

Write Your Own Medicine Chant - A creative writing workshop

Song and chant are powerful tools for healing and release. In this creative writing workshop you will learn techniques and formulas for birthing your very own personal medicine chant. Do you seek healing or release? Sing, sing, sing it out!!!

Ria Windcaller Presents:

Aikido at Temenos-
Workshop 1 with Jo
Ria will be teaching the use of the 4-foot staff known, as a “Jo” in Japanese. This morning session will have
everyone moving with a jo and learning a breath Kata. The jo is an eloquent weapon, as it can be spun and twirled around in 3-dimensional space. O’Sensei, the Founder of Aikido, used the jo as part of a purification exercise, that Ria will introduce. If possible, bring along your own 4-foot walking stick, broomstick or other smooth surfaced, round staff.

Workshop 2– Walking from the Center
Aikido is based upon the principle to not meet violence with greater violence. Rarely does a full-on attack come in silently – more often than not it is loud and unnerving. Not accelerating to the same chaotic state
of mind as a would-be attacker is critical. This workshop will teach how to Step-off-the-line of attack(s)
while maintaining a balanced center both emotionally and physically. Everyone will practice maintaining their center in a safe, fun, and friendly exercises geared for the novice.

Trail Guide for the many beautiful natural features of Temenos including:
Mount Mineral, which is the name of the high plateau where Temenos is located, has natural potholes that
are said to contain different earth minerals – thus the name Mt Mineral. This historic site was once a destination for early vacationers who would come to the potholes at Temenos for what was considered curative waters. Ria has hiked extensively in the vast woodlands surrounding Temenos.

Heather Killen Presents: Silk and Steel -
The path of the Warrior is one steeped in misinterpretation and misrepresentation. It is a path that often is not popular and is sometimes lonely and demands a courageous spirit. The focus of this workshop is how women approach and walk the Warrior's Path. Exploring the inner warrior in every woman; the things women fight for, the reclaiming of the Clan Mothers, and the Warrior Aspect of the Goddess. There is a delicate balance that the female guardian/warrior walks. She is as strong as a tempered blade when needed, and as soft as silk. She is strong and soft because she understands the power of wills and she understands herself. Strong and feminine, what a combo! It leaves weaker men quaking in their sandals.
This workshop is for every woman who has ever defended her hearth and family, to every woman who has honorably stood her ground on what she knew in her heart and gut to be right.
Some of the topics that will be covered: the 3 levels of will, power with vs. power over, boundaries,warding, offence and defense. The Clan Mothers and Grandmothers, Dark Alphas, being pro-active, not playing stupid white woman games, owning yourself, standing your ground, where to find help, the Queens of Olde. The Silk and Steel workshop will conclude with an empowering Women’s ritual, filled with blessings and shields to aid you in your journey.
