INTRODUCTION

We are so happy to invite you to beautiful Shambala Gatherings in Borntorpet where we have the privilege to spend some days together dedicated to the Sacred Feminine.

The program includes:

Be Woman Project, Devi Circles, sharing our stories, reflection on being a woman, teachings on the sacred feminine & archetypes, Vedanta, psychology, mantra chanting and singing, ritual & ceremonies, guided meditations, connection, women supporting women, pampering & nourishment, Dance, Vedic Mythology, sauna and lake ritual, creative feminine expression, alone time, nature walks and new Inspiration.

Description:

Be Woman Retreat is born from an initiative that is called: Be Woman Project with a vision to neutralize competition, jealousy and fear through contribution, support, admiration and education. “Women supporting women”.

The secret lies in accepting what was, embracing what is, loving what comes and giving what I want and ultimately knowing what matters and what doesn’t, what can I change and what cannot I not change.

In that understanding I can heal, grow and mature. Eventually I can embody what I know and share with others who want to be free, strong and brave women.

Be Woman Retreat is for you, for any woman who wants to Be a Woman, be herself and fearlessly embody all her sides, meet the world with an open non judgmental compassionate caring and loving heart, mirroring back love and validation.

This retreat can help to find new inspiration for life and tools in how to lead and hold ones own Women’s Circle.

“It started with a prayer, an English mantra: Know Woman. Be Woman. All Women. Nature Nurture. Me.”

This retreat is here to bring women from all backgrounds together: offering support, tools & teachings that have its roots in the Vedic Tradition.

In the Vedic Vision, all that is here, is sacred. All that is here, is my infinite expression. The world is my heart. I am the whole, nothing is away from me. There might be many different forms, different ornaments yet they are all sustained by one and the same gold. Vedanta says you are that gold.

“Discovering that I am the gold, frees my heart from pain, as I stop comparing myself with other women and I discover that what I want, is what I am. I am whole, I am acceptable, I am lovable. I am the source of love, security & happiness. That is sacred beauty to me.”

The secret lies in accepting what was, embracing what is, loving what comes and giving what I want and ultimately knowing what matters and what doesn’t, what I can change and what I cannot not change.

In that understanding I can heal, grow and mature. Eventually I can embody what I know and share with others who want to be free, strong and brave women.

Be Woman Retreat is for you, for any woman who wants to Be a Woman, be herself and fearlessly embody all her sides, meet the world with an open non judgmental compassionate caring and loving heart, mirroring back love and validation.

This retreat can help to find new inspiration for life and tools in how to lead and hold ones own Women’s Circle.

Be Woman Project:

 

Giving information and sharing of the vision. How can any woman contribute?

The giver is the receiver. The receiver is the giver.

Women supporting women.

 

** Rituals, ceremonies –

Mantras and guided meditation help us to manage our emotions, overcome fears and obstacles that hinder our natural loving expression in life.

This is a magical expression and participation mystique, a regression to the magical child yet this time with wisdom, understanding and depth.

 

** Bhakti –

Devotion is an essential theme of our retreat. It is an attitude that we will invite to reside in our hearts in and through every expression, practices and learning. When we see what we have, it goes to the infinite. Everything is given, including my body, mind, and sense complex. When this fact is assimilated, Devotion is natural.

 

** Devi Classes –

Here we learn about our essential nature, we learn that we are lovable and worthy just as we are. Through stories from the Vedic Mythology we find lots of inspiration and support in life. We learn that the body is a temple; we neutralize complexes and judgments around it. We find a source of help and support through the teachings of Vedanta and the sharing with other women.

 

** Devi Circles –

Devi circles are magical, at times scary because here we will share with each other our stories
and also reveal ourselves. We will learn how to invoke courage and strength to express out loud what has been untold. For many carry shame, guilt, hurts, judgments and fears. One of the best way to overcome them is to share and give voice to them and see that we are not alone. There is a background for it and there was helplessness. We can ask for help, we are worthy of it. We are ready to offer back what does not serve any longer. Based on different themes we will see how we have been conditioned and maybe holding on to wrong ideas and notions. In loving compassionate non-judgmental way we let them go and unlearn.

Sacred Dance and Yoga help to process emotions, these practices are healing, strengthening, nourishing and simply beautiful.

 

** Alone time –

Learning how to be alone without feeling lonely. There will be time for writing, inner child meditation, contemplation and time alone to see the value of alone time, giving our selves space and time to rest in order to process, integrate and assimilate what we are learning.

 

**And more –

Sauna and Lake Rituals, Yoga, pampering and nourishment.

“Before I came to the devi retreat in Sweden, I had never heard of vedic tradition. I went into it with an open mind and 7 days later I came out with 1.000 times more love for myself, my fellow devi’s and nature. I already clicked with the idea that you yourself are all that you need a few years ago, but after the retreat it finally settled in my head. I know now that that is true, that I am beautiful and perfect no matter what and I deserve the best. Such a powerful message I think everybody should learn. I am so thankful for this experience. Thank you Sharada, Pia en Ananya” – Yorien

“I want to take the time to thank you for the beautiful goddess retreat you held this summer in Sweden. It was magical and EXACTLY what I needed. It was life changing!! Before the retreat I was so lost and exhausted. You made me feel welcome, accepted and loved. I got to connect with my spirituality through your guidance. I have great respect for your knowledge but even more for how well you gave us theory and practice at our level, to make us curious and feel safe. You are a true Devi and you bring out the devis in everyone you meet. I am forever grateful that I got to meet you and participate in the devi retreat. When I got home, my partner saw how I had changed in a positive way. And we both recognized how important it is for me to have an altar, a secret space for me to meditate. So he built a beautiful shelf where I could have my privacy and I meditate there every day. I am sending you lots of love and gratitude from the bottom of my heart!” -Carina
