Hidden in the woods is a small authentic Mongolian felt Yurt. A special Sanctuary that is a safe place for women to gather in ceremony to honour our life giving cycles and commune with the Cosmic Mother and her daughter the Earth. Our Womb Lodge interior is draped with saris and warmed with natural fibre carpets, and cushions in shades of red. It is the centre focus of our Womb Wisdom retreats here at Wyldwood Sojourn.

We offer evening gatherings each new moon as a community service. In this clean space we honour and call in sweet and joyful energies. Any issues of trauma or anger are taken care of prior to entering through various shamanic means.

The Yurt (our Dark lodge or Moon Lodge Sanctuary) is  a chapter of the world wide Red Tent Movement founded by Alisa Starkwater in 2008.

The circles & celebrations & teachings offered at Wyldwood Sojourn are intended to open us to restoring the inner balance, of the Feminine & Masculine Principals ..for both men & women. The sacred marriage within each of us! There is so much to re-member …so much work to do! Re connecting with Nature & Her cycles is one way that is honoured here at Wyldwood Sojourn.

“Because of too much focus on the outer world of light we are cut off from our inner Wisdom and Soulfulness! Here we re-member what has been dis-membered, through discussion,study,dance, celebration, song, chanting, art making, storytelling and ritual. Rape and abuse shatters Soul energy in a woman’s womb and is what dis-empowers us, generation to generation. It is the main reason women, or men who respect the Feminine within, have not held world leadership positions in the last two thousand years. Our Red Tent at Wyldwood focuses on the Qero teachings of the Blood Masteries from Peru  . These teachings were brought to me by Cindy Lindsay who studied for many years in both Peru & in India. See bio, below in the section on Teachers. “The Womb is the access point to the Divine Mother’s creative power(is not the second chakra,nor has it any relation to the seven chakra system) It is a woman’s direct connection to the Womb of the Great Goddess. The source of Creation of all. We are entering the time period of the Feminine , as predicted by the Mayan shift into the new era in Dec. 2012, as well as in other cultures. The great creative power,must return in full force & beauty, to the earth & especially to the womb of women. Women must re -own & harmonize with this divine energy. Men also have a place. They must learn to open their hearts. It is our future! “  by; Cindy Lindsay

Feminine Retreat Women's Murals | Red Tent Wyldwood Sojourn

In the deep divine darkness of winter we snuggled in the tiny Moon Lodge and learned about the real and practical way to heal our wombs and gather in powerful & sacred energies once more…nine women came and shared.

This retreat is an ongoing work offered annully.

I am excited to share that men are now joining us in a desire to understand and engage both their own powerful inner feminine qualities as well as developing a deeper understanding of women. This Qero tradition is newly re surfaced after 600 years . it was kept safely hidden until this new era, as proclaimed by the Mayans. It has also surfaced in India after 7000 years,though in a different form.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARed Tent Essence by www.mypasana.com an anointing oil for sacred rites. This essence was inspired by the Book called the Red Tent.and by the Red Tent movement that followed.( founded by Alisa Starkweather.)  The Red Tent is the same as Moon Lodge,Dark Lodge etc. It is a temple space created by women globally to meet at their Moon Time  in  meditation and gather in divine Soul energy so to inspire and create for their community, with beauty. The moon lodge practice  was lost with the  coming patriarch.  The book focuses on  the Red Tent of middle eastern women around 4000 BCE. However  the practice continued longer in north & south america. Today there are 1000’s of Red Tents were women meet to meditate & remember  and call up the lost and suppressed feminine traditions of enlightenment. this Qero teaching of the womb, is one. and to its recovery we thank Cindy Lindsey who lived with the Qero and brought their wisdom  to America.
