Winter Retreat
July 29 - 31 2022

Welcome to our Winter Retreat for 2022 in Daylesford Victoria, July 29th - 31st.

Nothing compares to our in-person retreats. The hold an incredible potency, are very intimate and offer you the space and time to rest, receive and re-connect to your true self. I am so looking forward to gathering with you in Daylesford over this beautiful, sacred weekend. 

I'd love to start with a testimonial from my last retreat in June 2021, then I will share our itinerary with you and a description of each workshop on offer. 

"Wow, where to begin?! It's hard to find words to express the feelings that were created on the Solstice Slumber Retreat. Shannon created a safe, sacred circle for us women to come together, and hold space for one another. I felt supported, seen, understood, and held. There's something so beautiful about likeminded women coming together to share stories, be vulnerable, and create a sisterhood in an environment free from judgement. It was a magical weekend that I will never forget. I can't express how much appreciation I have for Shannon. She is born for this work, and I will continue to be in awe of her".

Workshop Descriptions

Cycle and Cacao Ceremony:
Focusing on the energetics and emotional landscape of menstrual cycle awareness, this workshop is intended to teach you that your cycle is much more than a physical occurrence. In this workshop we’ll cover:
a) the four rites of passage we transition through as a cyclical being. We’ll explore the relevant archetype, the lessons and the power each rite of passage presents.
b) The energy of the four seasons of nature and how we can use this framework as a way to better understand our cyclical powers and vulnerabilities.
c) A cyclical self-care plan mapped out on a chart with a variety of practices to support you throughout your cycle.

The intention of this workshop is to remind you that you are not required to show up as the same person each and every day. Whether you have a cycle or you follow the moon’s cycle, we are innately cyclical beings. This workshop has been designed to equip you with the knowledge and tools to identify your unique cyclical patterns and from there, understand your individual cyclical powers and vulnerabilities. When you understand these two parts of your cycle, you can then *as best as possible*, sync your life activities to your cycle and select which cyclical self-care practices are most relevant for that season and cycle day. 

Plant Medicine Workshop:
This workshop explores the energetics of plant medicine ie / the spirit of the plant, the emotional and spiritual benefits and uses as well as the physical benefits. In particular, we will be working with Calendula, Rose and Sage. We’ll partake in a visual practice to begin and then move on to creating your own ritual body oil and cleansing smudge stick.
