                        Here is a summery of our adventures August 13 & 14, 2016 

   Dear Beloveds;

The first car filled with women arrived at Deseronto having come through blinding fierce rain, much needed and cleansing but challenging on highways.

As we climbed the stairs to this grand old stone hall, the air was just exquisite with freshness. What an incredible sacred and welcoming space. How blessed we are to be able to do ceremony at St. Marks Hall.

Maureen prepared a powerful altar.

Roula introduced the Seven Waves while Erin held down the groove with her Daff. Waves travel from earth to heaven and from heaven to earth in variations of circles and figure eights!

The Seven Waves are a jumping off place to enter an organic and ecstatic state of ‘wave’. we also explored several kinds of shimmies, before the rest arrived from Toronto.

Official Opening

In circle we rang our names into the silver bowl in the centre & authentic expression. The group echoed the names back to each woman along with her gesture. we put three names in to that silver bowl.

 Ready for Dinner! We feasted in the elegance and generosity of Edgar and Paul’s hospitality.

The Evening Programme

Maureen led us in an Inca inspired meditation, to attract divine source Soul Energy into our sacred Wombs.

Then she told her version of the Mohawk creation story, called Sky Woman (while sitting in a most elegantly carved ‘storytelling chair’.)

*************************

In the misty darkness we ventured into the garden under the giant fir tree, in light summer clothes.  Anahita shared with us a belly washing tradition from Columbia that we adjusted to a Womb washing ritual. Each with a bowl of water, we gently washed our wombs in a spiral motion of releasing while Roula sang her “womb spiral song”.

Zaar

A dive into delicious darkness of the inner feminine ‘creation station’, to release and make peace through free movement.  The experience deepened by Roula’s sound track of songs, with Erin and Roula drumming.

With the sacred tobacco Ambil, and Salty medicine that Anahita also brought from Columbia, we calmed and quieted the energies and made ourselves comfortable under the high vaulted ceiling of this former church. We fell into deep delicious sleep.

Greeting the Morning!

After a light healthy breakfast outside under the mighty fir tree, we met again for a morning storytelling session with Maureen

She began with the Iroquois story of the Peacemakers ,sharing the untold beginning, featuring the life of the Virgin Birth Mothers. These powerful shaman including their son, were born 1100 years ago, in this very place, Tyendinaga. This is indeed Holy ground.

Her second story was her version of the White Calf Buffalo Woman, from the Souix Nation.

******************************

Dervish Whirling

In the light of day we honoured our inner masculine in the form of whirling and creating that pillar of light as we spun. Roula led us in balancing exercises and some basic rules of safe whirling. In this beautiful open space and floor we felt free and inspired. We approached this with a natural impulse, as children do, as opposed to locking into a set of rules, of a specific lineage of this dance.

Roula invited feedback or expressions felt after the whirling. Mora shared a gorgeous poem painting her experience in words. ‘I could feel her being danced’ said Roula.

Final Edgar Feast

We closed the event by forming a circle around  Edgar and Paul and sang Sallee u Sallim altogether, in appreciation, with drums too of course. Followed by Happy Birthday to Edgar. Ramona offered, as a gift an aria in full voice. Spectacular. 

thank you all  and especially thank you Roula!

and the shadows that sprang up seemed those of our ancestors, delighted to be remembered.

Thank you everyone for your deeply moving and soulful presence.

May you carry home the delicious new feelings and stirrings that fill your wombs,  and spread that empowering creative vibration with all whom you meet!

margueritemaureen

We hope you will continue to journey with us as the great undercurrent of this work carries us all along, worldwide. Lets keep in touch and share our  new understandings in future gatherings.

Your beautiful woodsy earth altars still lay hidden but vibrant, in tiny corners of the Wyldwood gardens!

We are already planning the direction of next years retreat with Marguerite, at Wyldwood and we are dreaming up a gathering with Emmanuelle in Mexico.

************************************ 

Roula Said will continue to offer her ever evolving Womb Dance/Music and Ela Beilski will continue her Kundalini classes. Next one to be announced this  fall. We also plan to invite Den Poitras, author of a fascinating and inspiring  book about woman’s contemporary ability to self conceive. This is from personal experience.

Your host Maureen Walton

Maureen designed this passive solar home in 1980. She bought the two wooded acres in Lonsdale in 1977 after traveling and working for 7 years in Europe, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia & Nunavut. These travels sparked her awareness of the Shamanic world and fed her visual art making process. Maureen’s is self taught and her professional work has always been in the arts, as a painter, animator, illustrator and designer.  Her current profession is as a muralist for schools and businesses.

 Maureen has always been a spiritual feminist and her dream to dedicate herself to uncovering lost Feminine traditions, came true when she met and became a student of Cindy Lindsay in 2009. Cindy lived and studied with the Qero, Inca shaman for 10 years.

Soon after Maureen began to host a Red Tent, inspired by Alisa Starkweather. This practice grew until Maureen was offering her own weekend retreats, were she began to teach the Inca Shamanic womb tradition, grounding and ensouling it with all kinds of art making projects.Soon she began to invite other teachers, who were uncovering other suppressed feminine spiritual paths, such as the teachings offered by Marguerite Rigoglioso.

Maureen’s intimate wooded hideaway began to grow into a ‘School of Womb Wisdom’. It is a safe sanctuary for women to meditate, honour their gifts as creators and reclaim the amazing sacred nature of their wombs (or energetic of). She looks forward to opening these teachings to men at the appropriate time.

Her mother Eileen O’Brien chose the name Wyldwood Sojourn. Her father Ken Walton introduced her, as a child to the sacredness of the four elements.

 


      Our First Retreat  with Marguerite….2015

marguerite

 

 

As women entering the new era many are passionate to learn  indigenous teachings from around the world that hold the lost and hidden wisdom of Womans’ Womb traditions. In this weekend we introduced treasures from the Haudenosaunee the Inca and the Greek.

 

Feminine Retreat Women's Murals | Red Tent Wyldwood Sojourn

Women’s source of Creation power comes from the alchemical processes in her sacred blood of life within her womb. The womb is the most Sacred place in a woman’s body. It is the only portal for blessings to reach the planet.

 

 Through understanding these mysteries we can begin to develop and increase our own womb power for creating beauty into the  world daily.

Gratitude! Maureen

 Your host Maureen Walton

Maureen designed this passive solar home in 1980. She bought the two wooded acres in 1977 after traveling and working for 5 years in Europe, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia & Nunavut. As an artist she filled her home with her own murals, paintings, sculptures and artifacts from her travels . Her background is in fine art, animation, illustration and design and her current profession is as a muralist for schools and businesses.

 Maureen has always been a feminist and her dream, to dedicate herself to uncovering lost Spiritual Feminine traditions, came true when she opened her home as a healing centre. Maureen hosts teachers, who are currently uncovering, huge numbers of hidden truths, from many Shamanic world traditions, all focused on the Sacred Feminine principal of Creation.

She leads a monthly Moon Lodge practice, established 7 years ago, in her yurt, which is nestled in the wooded garden. This is a safe sanctuary for women to meditate, honour their gifts as creators and reclaim their birthrights. Maureen has studied the ancient Shamanic Inca path of the Blood Masteries and the Loque Power of the Womb tradition and teaches this work at Wyldwood also. Her mother Eileen O’Brien at Maureen’s request, chose the name Wyldwood Sojourn to initiate and support this venture.

The womb is the creation centre of all life.
Its purpose goes far beyond building the human race!

Women can enhance their gifts by aligning with their womb cycles. As they pool with the blood of life they are more sensitive and open to visions and numinous dreaming.If they practice cleansing beforehand, women can import huge amounts of divine soul energy (full of pure emotion and feeling) each month and so feed themselves the community and men. This is the meaning of the feminine downward pointing triangle. Ensouling the earth and creating a earthly paradice.

Feminine Wisdom returns, with hidden truths revealed. Join us to re-member.
