Join us for a Priestess Healer Training Immersion into the Shamanic Way of the Womb® in the magical Avalon/Glastonbury UK 

5th - 12th May 2024 

Come walk the Path of the Priestess Healer in our week of Moon College education.

Specialising in the alchemy through the Shamanic Way of the Womb® Medicine Wheel teachings and the Path of the Priestess Healer training.

We are welcoming couples, singles, men and women to dive deeply into this healing work. For women we work with the womb space, the energetic portal of the womb. For men we work with the hara, and the equivalent places of creation, and placement on the Medicine Wheel.

 

This is intensive feminine awakening work combined with shamanic journeying into the Old Ways and an accredited professional facilitators training.

Our venue setting is on the sacred Isle of Avalon. Heart chakra of the world, a place for transformation, learning and healing.  

Our retreat centre, Earthspirit is just 5 miles from Glastonbury, on the edge of Compton Dundon village in Somerset.  

 

Earthspirit lies within the ‘temenos’ (the sacred enclosure) of Avalon. Situated between 2 nature reserves; a 2 minutes walk from the cemetery with a huge yew tree  1,800 years old.

The grounds of 7 acres allow us to all feel nestled and held, where we can connect to the elements, the Goddess of the Healing Wheel, and immerse deeply into the Moon College experience.

"Before the retreat began I set the intention to receive what I needed, arriving with an open heart and womb space. The week has truly blown me away.

A sisterhood of 16 and 1 brother, arriving as strangers, leaving as sacred soul friends. We journeyed through practicals, theory, ceremony, ritual. We went to the depths, Angie created safe sacred space for all to dive deeply into their woundings, shadows, pain, trauma.

To watch people’s descent and then arrive back into ascension, was like seeing Phoenix rising. Wild skati, primal, remembering, priestesshood.

The magic of the womb was tangible, the love and memories created will stay with me forever. I feel totally aligned and ready to share my gifts of my womb with the world If you feel the pull to this work, follow the thread, you won’t be disappointed" JT Devon

What a week of learning, exploration, community, deep self work and healing!! A warm and safe container was created for the whole week so we could explore the themes and practices both for ourselves and then as facilitators.

 

Angie guides and teaches with so much knowledge, wisdom and generosity and isn’t afraid to share her own shadows and vulnerability.  She is a master at holding space and the support from Rod and Marisa was amazing.

 

It’s beautiful work that I’m so honoured to have shared with the other sisters in the group and I’m excited about taking it out into the world. I feel like I have so much to share after this and have delved deeper and higher into the spiral on my own path too. This isn’t “easy” work but it’s so magical and healing, if you feel ready, don’t hesitate!

 

The accommodation and food were excellent and the surroundings beautiful, peaceful with great short and long walks on your doorstep.

 

With so much love and gratitude for an unforgettable week. Morika
