Every few months, around the Full Moon, I offer a retreat for pregnant women.
It takes place in my relaxing garden studio in Wallingford, South Oxfordshire, and is designed with your needs as a pregnant woman in mind.
Why the Full Moon?
This one-day retreat is for pregnant women who want to celebrate the Full Moon and of course celebrate their pregnancy, the Fullness of their Tummy, the Full Presence of their Baby in their Womb.
It is a circle of celebration and ceremony for pregnant women on the Saturday closest to the full moon (see dates of the next Retreats at the bottom of this page).
It is a time to connect with Mother Nature, with the Moon and the Earth, with each other, with your inner self and with your baby through a meaningful ceremony.
It is a time for relaxation, meditation, journalling, being in silence as well as sharing deeply with other like-minded women your worries and concerns about your upcoming birth and about motherhood, in a safe space and in circle, the most powerful setting to be with other women.
We will sit in circle on very comfortable cushions on the floor in my studio. There are also a few chairs if you feel the need to sit down on something sturdier and for your back to be supported.
6 women maximum
