A 6 Day/5 Night immersion to journey through your dark feminine being held in the loving embrace of sacred sisterhood and initiate into your deepest life-force.

Magical Time of Samhain ..

Samhain is an ancient sacred Celtic festival celebrated on the 31st of October marking the end of the harvest season and beginning of the ‘darker’ half of the year.

Samhain is a celebration of the death cycle of Mother Earth and the honouring of the downtime between the end and the start of a new cycle, which when ignored leads to low & depressed energies during winter especially for us women.

The day of Samhain unlocks the magical portal between death and rebirth .. a perfect time to honor the Dark Feminine by shredding, releasing and rebirthing ourselves once again.

Mystical Land of Glastonbury..

Witness the mysticism and celebration seen no where other than in the mystical land of Glastonbury which is both the Heart Chakra and the current Third Eye Chakra energy centres of planet Earth.

When we journey to places of heightened spiritual energies during the times of great awakenings such as now, our contact with these energies act a catalyst to our own awakening.

You will be enriched and elevated by the alchemy of the sacred land of Glastonbury.

So what is the Dark Feminine?

The Dark Feminine creates us – it holds deep spiritual intelligence and infinite possibilities to take form!

In today’s world we do everything to resist the Dark Feminine, run the other way to medicate, numb or distract ourselves..

In actuality, the Dark Feminine is not a place of fear but of love – deep, complete, unconditional acceptance. Just like the loving darkness of our mother’s womb.

Yes, for the first part of our life, we were at home within her. We belonged intimately within this Dark Feminine.

And now a part of us are longing to return to that safety, ease and feeling of deep belonging.

In order to reclaim our innate wisdom we have to step in to the Dark Feminine once more.

To face the shadows we are running away from on a daily basis and to re-integrate them.

The Dark Feminine represents the unknown, the mystery, the veiled, the uncontrolled, the unnameable, madness and chaos, stillness and silence, winter and night.

This place of renewal, death and rebirth is our soul’s home.

Your Dark Feminine is calling you if..

  • You are  longing to be more courageous and powerful but hesitant to express yourself fully.

  • You have had enough of hiding and playing small and know it’s time to show up in your authentic power.

  • You need a mind, body and soul reset so that you can finally stop the habit of burning yourself out and birth your burning desires.

  • You know deep in your bones that there is more to your life but not quite sure how to get there.

  • You are craving deep feminine replenishment and need a break from the crazy grind of your day-to-day.

  • You long to release sexual shame, guilt, trauma and old beliefs that have been holding you back and feel more playful, confident and light in your sexuality.

“Jonita is a wonderful facilitator who sets the scene perfectly for a personal transformative experience. I had a very sensual experience – deep, sacred, fun and light at the same time. I loved all the bodily exercises. It was a beautiful way to get in touch with myself and my Sacred Feminine.”

Meet Your Temple-Guide

I am Jonita Dsouza, your Feminine Lifestylist, an Author and Creatress of Exploring Femininity which is a medicine for modern day busy women. I assist busy women just like YOU to reconnect with their feminine and sensual selves in their daily lives so that they can begin to experience more energy, fulfilment and pleasure without burn out and overwhelm.

 

After immersing myself in to the teachings of the divine feminine for few years to pull myself out of my rock bottom moment, I realised my sacred purpose was to impart my knowledge and experience to women around so that together we can understand the beauty & gift of womanhood and create a beautiful life and a meaningful society for ourselves.

 

With over 7 years of experience working with hundreds of amazing clients guiding them to achieve remarkable success in their personal and business lives, my mission and commitment is to bring back the feminine to the women of the 21st century so that they get out of their ‘busy’ rut, learn how to cope up with the everyday stress and chaos, start experiencing the juiciness of being a woman and create a sustainable life for herself, her loved ones and for generations to come.

Below are some Frequently Asked Questions..

I am busy those days, are you going to host this event again ?

To be honest, I don’t know. I create events and retreats as I am guided to do. If you are reading these lines, it is probably because you are feeling called towards your Dark Feminine. Lean in deeper into the call, if you are meant to be here, you will be. That’s for sure. If it’s a full body YES, get in touch with us to see what other possibilities can be made available to you.

I can’t afford the price, is there a discount ?

Your relationship to money speaks about the relationship you have with yourself. What are your priorities ? Where is your money being invested and spent ? Are you, your health, life and dreams a priority ? If yes, you will find a way to sustain your desire to join us.

There is always a way to manifest that which you desire. You may consider asking for support, reaching out to your community, family or soul tribe, saving money and cutting some expenses, and looking into the payment plan. The Universe always provides so as soon as your soul says a resounding YES.

This is my personal experience : every time I said yes to myself , I have found a way to have the money I needed. Secure your space with a $200 deposit and then space out the balance in 2, 4 or even 6 payments. We offer a very flexible payment plan.

What is the refund/cancellation policy?

Your deposit will not be refunded.

In case of cancellation before 3rd October 2018, we will keep 50% of your deposit as an administration fee.

In case of cancellation after 3rd October, there will be no refunds. We are financially responsible for the training, so we ask you to respect that we cannot make any exceptions to this agreement.

In the event that you cannot attend the retreat but know of someone who can take your place, you may transfer the full amount of your fees paid to the 3rd party on the condition that we are notified immediately by both parties and accept the application of the new sister 30 days before the start of the retreat.

I want to do this but I’m afraid to commit. How do I know if this is right for me?

Fear is often a good sign because it shows you’re on the edge of something really big and important for you! I invite you to ask yourself the question : Is the fear a genuine concern for your safety or is the fear signalling you’re about to actualise yourself in a big way ? It is completely normal to feel fear when you’re about to leave your comfort zone and explore the landscapes of your Soul.  In fact I expect it every time I’m on the edge of my evolutionary path. I believe fear and discomfort are good signs : they are gatekeepers to your dreams and signs towards your courageous heart and visionary Soul. To alleviate the fear, seat with her : recognise the truth of what it is really about and decide what you want in your life. You’ll know this retreat is right for you if you feel the call in your heart!

How do I get to the retreat centre?

The nearest international airport is Bristol. The retreat centre is an hour drive from this airport. The nearest city is Bath Spa.The retreat centre is half hour drive from this city centre. You can also choose to fly into London, explore a little bit, take a train to Bath and then a taxi to the retreat centre. We can arrange group taxis from Bath Spa once we know your arrival time to split the costs.

What are the retreat times?

The retreat will officially begin at 5pm on 27th October and finish by 11am on 1st November.

Please apply only if you can fully commit to the entire duration of the retreat i.e. arrive by 3pm on the 27th October latest, so that you have plenty of time to settle down before the Opening Circle at 5pm and leave after the completion of the Closing Circle at 11am on the 1st of November.

What will be the weather?

England is famous of its grey weather, however, we will not let this deprive you of your transformational experience. As the nature turns inward to embrace darkness, you will experience this to be the perfect time to face your Dark Feminine too. The temperature will range from 6 to 10 degree Celsius. So please bring clothes to keep yourself warm and dry, especially on our day trip to Glastonbury on Samhain.

What do I need to bring and any other preparation that I need to do before arriving?

Once you book your spot with the deposit, you will receive emails with all the details on what you need to bring. There is nothing you need to prepare prior to arriving. I invite you to keep yourself open to the flow of travelling and being in a new setting. Give yourself enough time to book your travel. Be open to new experiences, new friendships, and the healing properties of this sacred land. It is going to be a loving and transformative experience.

What is not included?

Travel Insurance. Transfers to and from the retreat centre. Breakfast and lunch during the Glastonbury Day trip (there are plenty of organic cafes in the town to indulge in). Personal shopping in Glastonbury.

Who do I contact if I have additional questions?
