 Dark Lodge/ New Moon Lodge

  Our moon Lodge celebrates its 10th year as a safe zone sanctuary for women with Wombs

( thus carrying the descending energies)

It is essential for women

to have a clean space to source in.

 We are sponges soaking up all energy surrounding us, good or bad! 

The New Moon Lodge was a global practice in all egalitarian cultures that thrived globally before the patriarchal era.

 In the Lodge we remember the Dark as the Dark of the Womb.

All life is born from the Dark !

As women with wombs, we receive 10 x more divine source, soul energies than men.

 We are here to ensoul the planet! 

Women are the creators of sacred  life on earth in all ways, in all forms.

A place to receive wisdom in the silent darkness

You may bring a sacred object and a small donation.

Maureen will offer the Inca womb to heart meditation .

This meditation is as powerful as you make it.

This work is only effective after healing has been done. Each day from full to new moon we can intend to let go little by little and so have room to receive, when entering the dark moon lodge.

Womb Technology of our


  A collaboration between

Maureen and Michele White Hart

* bio below

We may have been able to be more in touch with our wombs during our recent home time and felt the benefits of resting during our cycle. We will provide opportunity for sharing  together with teachings.


As a creation station for miracles to form in, we need to continually cleanse and purify ourselves, in order to access the wisdom and power of our sacred wombs 

Michele will guide us through a movement and breathe exploration and lead us in the ancient yoni steaming ritual, in the woods, to aid us in releasing.

It will be followed by a dark lodge meditation to receive, led by Maureen.

we will engage in creating simple earth altars in honour of our wombs.

A special bonus to compliment our work, is the opportunity to view a 40 min doc. created by Michele. This documentary gives a glimpse into the real life situations of a powerful Mesopotamian Priestess, who lived in 2300 BCE - holding her own in a warring patriarchal nation.

Purification and receiving rituals, were a major practice of a High Priestess.

We will hold sharing circles to  discuss

 Note: this is the dry time of year and the well at WS may be low, so special effort will be made to conserve water.

 May it serve as a reminder  how precious water is!

We ask you to bring your own large bottle of drinking water and use the out houses provided and enjoy the outdoor rainwater shower and the river for washing. Lets use it as an opportunity to be closer to the natural ways.

Wear loose light long pants & clothing, shoe and sock option for hiking.


Michelle White Hart is a Somatic Movement Educator and teaches women how to get out of mental looping and into their feminine receptive nature to heal trauma, gain confidence and cultivate their feminine knowing.  She is the Founder of the Yoni Steam Lodge where she uses simple, somatic meditations, embodied dance, womb awareness,  womb steaming rituals and the latest in re-discovered ancient womb technologies.  She uncovered a lost part of women’s history by making a documentary about Enheduana, the first known writer of all literature who was a Mesopotamian High Priestess.

Feminine Wisdom Descending

White Tantric retreat

(with yoni egg teaching)

 created by

Helen Patton

founder of Vapika Tantric/Yoga Studio,

Ingersol On.

in collaboration with Maureen.

Travelling through the woods and waterfalls with our crystal yoni eggs we will create small individual womb altars and bring them into the moon lodge to imbue with the meditation, story and circle energies.

 This retreat will focus on lectures and teachings and practices of the ancient Tantric path combined with the inca meditation of joining heart to womb, which compliments the tantric path of form and creation.

Helen and Maureen connected on discovering the similarities in their missions of honouring the descending forces of the feminine creation principal. Maureen also realized that the inca meditation includes many aspects of white tantric tradition.

Are you ready to receive your own personal yoni egg,

included in the cost of this retreat?

including dark lodge, tantric practices, art

project, teachings, ceremony, hikes and time in nature. 

Welcome Kassandra as Helens assistant to offer her sound anatomical knowledge of pelvis and womb. Kassandra is a massage therapist.




A brief history of the Qero and their pre contact traditions.

In 1996 the Qero Indians of Peru came to New York and held ceremony in a large Cathedral.

This ceremony was to initiate Patchcuti, meaning to turn the world rightside up again.

 The Qero had hidden for 500 years in the high Andes to avoid colonization.They had been all but forgotten.   They intuited that 1949 was the time to descend and share their wisdom to the new world.

In the late 80s early 90s Cindy Lindsay studied with the last living members of the original Qero and she brought to me their teaching of the Luminous Structure.

This is a meditation from pre - contact!

 joining heart and womb.

I have studied this for 10 years and have been guided to develop it further.

This is truly a practice for female spiritual practitioners to remember how to self conceive the world as sacred once more.

It compliments the male path perfectly. It comes to us as an unbroken lineage of spiritual wisdom, from the predecessors of the Inca.

These are global practices for all from a cosmic level.

Maureen will share this teaching and explain the natural technologies of its workings as she understands it in these retreats as part of the collaborative work.

Awakening Community for the Sustenance and Conception of Life

The Cauldron of Life: A Mystery School For Our Times

A Sacred Feminine Path to Develop Humanity's Innate Etheric Technologies -- Interpreting and Enlivening the Hybernian Mysteries
Mother Mary was a Temple Weaver. Who are the Temple Weavers of today? Who are those women (and men) who make the elements and forces of creation align in order to bring forth and foster new life coming to us from the spirit-realms? Mother Matter is being intentionally disorderd and degraded in our times. Who will realign her to source once again?
Ancient temple-weaving technologies were hidden in symbolic and gestural codes, and require skillful 'translators' who are able to bring forth their meaning and their relevance in our times. We are called to recover them, but this will not be an intellectual exercise or a matter of claiming hidden things in the name of power or elitism. Instead, we recover the technologies through the healing of our souls. The technologies can be sensed by those who learn to work alchemically and creatively with both the sacred designs of the womb and the power of the mind. They are fully realized by those who undertake this alchemical work as an education in Love and in Sacred Community.
Through this community of seekers and learners, we will develop our abilities to transform our soul-habits and physiological-patterns into creation-energies which bring forth and nurture Life.
We will do this through an experience of the forces of creation and the sacred directions, energy-fields (currently expressed two-dimensionally in symbols), the web of life, time and rhythms space, and the elements.
Drama and speech exercises will be used to serve as vehicle to step into our higher Creative Self. It is a path beyond egoism to bring out of me – my sensuous me, my feeing and thinking me, my spirit and doing-me -- that which is not only me.
Hononouring Sacred Law through a Lived E
We step into our highest creative self for this work. The Community and its formation is the chalice for the transformative work of the Cauldron of Life – developing the ability to behold and honour the sacred in self and in the other; acknowledging and integrating our own Shadow. Transforming ourselves: from competition to compassion; from group-think to solidarity; from isolation to a sense of the whole.

This is why Maureen invites healers like Helen to collaborate with her.

The Yoni egg tradition from Japan, uses crystal healing,

together with visceral massage, exercises, movement & breathe work.

-  on a much deeper level than we currently know!

 We are excited to create a Night Vigil for you!

Why have we been taught that the dark is evil?

Why is the womb's power ignored?

with  story, meditation, ceremony, dance, river bathing, creating earth altars,

and finally birth the dream we gestated through the night, into the morning light!

Herbs of Moon andWomb

a collaboration between Maureen and Tamara.

 Tamara Segal of Hawthorn Herbals 

Tamara is a registered herbalist from PEC

She has a wealth of remedies to share with us

that will aid in healing and empowering the Womb, our central creation station!


The meditation Maureen offers in the Moon Lodge,

has the potential to to allow us to receive on a very deep level

after we have released and cleansed with the herbs. 

"Women's medicine has a strong connection with the moon and intuition, while also offering support for our reproductive system.
The earth, our mother, has provided us with plant medicines to help us restore balance!
In this workshop, we will learn to identify, harvest and use these sacred medicines in safe, healing,
supportive ways for holistic support of the womb and female reproductive system.
We'll also explore our intuitive connection with these earth medicines." Tamara 

This 24 hr. retreat will bring together two worlds of womb empowerment.

The world of womb medicine and the world of womb meditation. 

Fortunately the local woods, were we will forage, is old growth

and shelters rare herbs as well as herbs more commonly found.

We will discover plants that, combined with our intuition, will heighten our manifesting and creation abilities.

A full retreat of foraging, making medicines, creating earth mandalas,

attending an evening moon lodge ceremony and learning Goddess lore! 

As a special treat Bonnie, our guest speaker,

will share her knowledge of Goddesses associated with the plant medicine world. 

 We will enjoy mid summer with a night time bonfire circle, you may bring a drum or rattle.

Our art project can be in creating a mandala in the woods with found objects, to give back to the earth and offer gratitude.

Marking the sacredness of Samhain, when the veils are thin.

Fri. Nov. 2 at 7:00pm to Sunday NOv. 4th at noon- 2018

Welcome Helen Patton to Wyldwood Sojourn 

 I've been studying Hands On Healing for most of my life. I'm a certified yoga teacher  Thai practitioner and Reiki master. My passion is where I am now on my journey !  I am learning about my womb through my own visioning and my Tantric practices. I  share that with other women in circles.  The beauty and the power of Tantra yoga can gently guide us back to our womb back to our sacred self as creators.

Maureen and Helen discovered that they both held the same

  understanding- that women's gift, is to draw the spiritual energies

down ward in order to birth things of great will ,weight and

soulfulness, into the world .

Woman's path to enlightenment is polar opposite to the masculine

path of light and ascension. 

Come and discover what has been long hidden.

This exploration contains memories of our journeys with alchemy,

 sacred geometry and working with the 4 elements. We will engage with the

waterfalls and the the woods and hold ceremony in the Cosmic yurt. The tiny Dark

 lodge is our sanctuary for you to have quiet inner time to receive. There

will be art projects, lots of time for sharing in circle & we will offer you guided meditations, in the dark, to draw energies down and circulate.

Maureen with the Inca Luminus structure.

Karen Holmes is our guest speaker. She will offer insights into 

the womb mysteries of the Earth.

We are looking forward to sharing this essential wisdom of the Feminine traditions, that apply to all cultures and to all ages. In attending such woman's circles, we move towards reclaiming our selves as the powerful creators we are and  taking our world leadership roles once more.





As you can see in Den's expression we have another teacher with a mischievous streak! 

Den's life seems guided by his passion to uncover the mysteries of the Divine Feminine principal in all. From an early experience with a friend who self conceived, he has devoted his study and art to its exploration.Den has written a book called "Parthenogenesis,Woman's long lost ability to self conceive".

It is in his art form were you can find his whimsical streak, by his use of found objects and garbage, which he transforms from the mundane to the profound. His subject is always referencing back to the mysteries of hidden feminine gifts of creation and of her Soulful nature.

Den is also a musician who plays guitar and flute and has a "Jug band" group that plays local  spots on the eastern seaboard of New York State.

Den believes that the world would be a better place with women leading.

Den is also a friend and colleague of Marguerite Rigoglioso and it was she who introduced him to Maureen Walton.

I look forward to my collaboration with Den in his first upcoming retreat here at Wyldwood. Be ready to engage in art making in the woods, ceremony in local caves, lots of discussion and information that will make an impact on your current accepted understandings of many things concerning woman's power.

this retreat is in June 2,3,4, 2017 see details in schedule.

NOTE!  read Den's blog so you will have a good understanding before attending;

Danielle Kreps presents

Plant Spirit Communication

Friday June 9th at 10am to Sunday June 11 at 4pm.

It seems fitting to introduce myself for those who may not be familiar with my Plant Spirit Healing Practice or Workshop offerings. This photo was taken at Wysdom Tree's 2016 Plant Spirit Communication Workshop (held at Soulful by Design) and I was definitely feeling gratitude to be sharing the gifts of our Green Allies who have enriched my life in so many ways.

They have helped me to heal, balance, and reclaim the hidden wounded spaces in my Spirit and have brought me into deeper relationship with this beautiful Earth Mother we are blessed to call home in this life.


Maureen is pleased to host Danielle for a full weekend of study and experiential practice with the plants. Wyldwood is teeming with native species that have been left undisturbed for many years.A rare opportunity.
