a Women's Circle in the desert with Judith Tripp MOVED TO NATHANAELS REST, MUNDARING

a Women’s Circle in the desert

due to unforseen circumstances, this retreat has been moved to Nathanaels Rest, Mundaring.

with Judith Tripp, an expert in using a walking labyrinth for healing, exploring life purpose and spirituality

In this second gathering of the Women's Circle in Koora Retreat Centre, Western Australia, we will explore the themes of Initiation, Listening for the Call, Coming to Dedication and finding our relationship to Devotion to God, our calling and our Feminine Hearts.  We will create a sacred circle, sing, dance, walk the labyrinth, write and share our hearts song with each other.  Meeting the Desert landscape, we will listen to what the tree, and rock and salt lake have to teach us and what we as wise women have to teach the world. 

Dear Women,
I just walked my labyrinth with prayers for Anna’s speedy and easeful healing. I am sure we are all sending her our prayers.
Like you, I am very sad to miss the opportunity to be with Anna and to be at Koora. Our circle there 2 years ago remains a shining memory for me. I go back there in the imaginal frequently and tell the story of our adventures with glee!
Nathanael’s rest is a different sort of place, but equally sacred. Beth’s beautiful garden and exquisite labyrinth are a sanctuary. The circle we will create there will deal with the same themes of release, self healing, sisterhood and contemplation of the role of wise women in our tumultuous world. I hope to include a time at the coast, building a labyrinth at the beach and enacting our release ceremony.
I do hope that you choose to join our circle. Now more than ever, we need to fortify ourselves and understand what the Earth needs from women of awareness and power.
I wish you all greetings from the Summer side of the world, just shy of the Solstice with all its abundant light and growing energy.

Sunday 3 to Friday 8 September 2017
