Eternal Mother

Ritual Retreat

 

An offering of prayers and healing for the Mother line,
restoring our primordial trust in life

October 29, 2022

 

Eternal Mother… undefinable, incomprehensible, a love so deep and so expansive that whales and mountains, worms and galaxies, hearts and minds, all become one in her. And yes, even here in this very breath she is… intimate… oh so close… a vast warmth within you where you remember…

exquisite release

luminous fullness

primordial trust and joy…

Her love is not something you have to earn or deserve, it is your very own essence, who you ARE and have always been. Your heart is rooted in Her heart; you can never be too much or not enough for her, flaws and halos, her love holds ALL of you, just as you are.

Yet, as daughters of ancestral mother lines running through centuries of patriarchy, many of us experience that the umbilical cord to our Source Mother—earth, cosmos and LIFE itself— is full of knots, wounds and a mistrust so prevalent we have learned to call it normal.

 

 

That feeling of not being supported. Of not having enough. Of not being enough. Feeling betrayed, abandoned. The endless chase to be good. To contort ourselves to be deserving of love. The shame, the fear of being seen. The tension. The overworking, overthinking. All the ways we abandon ourselves, sacrificing ourselves, ignoring our dharmic desire for joy and freedom.

 

But through it all your heart remembers, doesn’t it…

the soft warmth of Her embrace.
The cells of your body whisper songs of trust in the night, of feeling safe and supported here on earth. Your soul never left the bliss of surrender. Just like the flower stretching its tender neck towards the sun, the innate intelligence of life itself keeps orienting you towards the real nourishment.

 

We welcome you, Sister, to a temple dedicated to your joy, to your freedom, to your root connection with Eternal Mother.

 

During this time of year when the veils between the realms are thin and support from the beyond is especially available to us, we will gather for a ritual retreat to feed and honor our Ancestral Mother Line, offer up prayers for healing and forgiveness, and dive deep into practices and rituals to restore ourselves in the primordial trust and love of our original source, our Eternal Mother.

 

Retreat Time:
Saturday, October 29
8 a.m. – 1p.m. Pacific
11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Eastern
5 p.m. – 10 p.m. Central Europe

* The retreat will be live streamed via Zoom
and will be recorded so you can participate in your own time
if you cannot be there live.

 

If you feel a longing to carve out space in your life for communion
with the luminous Source within you…

If you feel thirsty for spiritual nourishment…

If you long to be supported, protected, held, to rest into a love that never lets you down…

If you struggle with setting boundaries…

If you sense something calling you, something subtle, a whisper, a hum…

If you feel tired and out of balance in the dance of giving and receiving…

Eternal Mother, give me roots within your luminous heart;
let me melt in the bliss of total trust
and let my vision soar in the vastness that you are;
let my words and actions emanate your peace.
Mother, wrap your arms of compassion around me
and pull me all the way
into you.
