Mary Magdalene… the Beloved, Priestess, flesh and blood woman, daughter, archetype, spiritual teacher, and the beloved companion of the Prince of Love.

Mary Magdalene… conduit of this miraculous love rippling through time and space; tickling, healing, transforming countless hearts, rising as a longing in the night for meaning, for mystery; as a call to shake off the masks, shackles of division, and return to union; as a sense, an intuition, a holy dream, of a world more true and beautiful.

 

 

July 21, the day before  Mary Magdalene Feast Day, we will gather for a ritual retreat to feed and honor her Lineage of Love, and how it lives and blossoms in each one of us.

We will rest, pray, and dive deep into practices and rituals to restore ourselves in the primordial trust and love of Source.

Inspired by teachings from the Gospel of the Beloved Companion, we will follow in Mary Magdalene’s footsteps as she awakens the Tree of Life Within, and walks through several gates of profound spiritual transformation.

We welcome you sister, to a temple dedicated to the Priestess of Love,
and to the awakening of her wisdom within us.

 

 

And right here,
breathing in and out
at the pulsating edge

 

where the Universal Source
becomes Woman

and Woman
becomes Universal Source

the lineage is alive

 

a blossoming so
unfathomably splendorous
yet utterly intimate

 

so cosmic
and yet so personal

 

holiness embodied
through your
perfectly imperfect
life.

 

Date & Time:

Sunday, July 21, 2024
8 a.m. – 1 p.m. Pacific
11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Eastern
17:00 – 22:00 Central Europe

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

My heart overflows with love for all the sisters journeying here. I feel like I’ve found home ‘within’. I am no longer running from my deep emotions and I embrace my humanity and allow spirit to be within me, not something I escape to. I now know I can be the deeply feeling woman I am and own every part of me; this is a gift beyond words. I humbly bow with joy in my heart. I am here, my heart is open.

Chameli is gifted as a guide. She is amazingly deep and knowledgeable, spot-on with seeing the ways we get caught in our minds and able to bring humor when we get too serious about our practices.

Like everything Awakening Women offers, we are encouraged to make the opportunity experiential and personal. There are no “wrong ways”. This is the beauty of the experience. We can BE where we are, and yet feel the inspiration of others, without the need to compare or judge ourselves.

Lost for words. Resting in a sense of deep peace and tiredness today, tears, sorrow and heaviness seeping out of me at the end of this beautiful retreat. Thank you all dear sisters for your presence and honesty. Thank your dear Chameli for your generous teachings and love. I bow. So humbled and so full of gratitude. I feel I hardly know you and yet I know you deeply. Hreem! Jai Jai Ma.

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

If you feel thirsty for spiritual nourishment…

If you long to connect deeper
with the lineage of wisdom keepers…

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

If you feel tired, flat and uninspired
and long to be held in a space where all of you is welcome…

Chameli Gad Ardagh
Founder, Awakening Women

Chameli (pronounced sha-meh-lee) is the founder of Awakening Women, a mystic and Goddess Wisdom Keeper. Through her love of ancient wisdom teachings, and her own practice in Goddess circles all over the world, she has crystallized maps of spiritual awakening and leadership that are accessible, practical and honoring of women today. Rooted in earth honoring, devotional women’s spirituality and goddess-centered tantric yoga, she is especially appreciated for her love of mythology and storytelling as a key to spiritual awakening and embodiment.

SimoneRita Egger
Teacher, Awakening Women

SimoneRita is a Goddess Wisdom Keeper in the lineage of the Living Goddess. Already as a young woman, in search of unconditional truth, she got to know various wisdom teachings. Since 2007, she has been passionately practicing in women’s circles around the world. Her embodied spiritual practice, rooted in Goddess-centered tantric yoga, involves meditation, dance, movement, chanting, being a businesswoman, and being a mother. She is especially appreciated for her knowledge of the original instructions of the Living Goddess that lead us home and how to live that in all aspects of our being, our family, our relationships and our leadership.

Again and again I experience in the AWI retreats this safe space that allows so much personal and collective healing. With trembling knees I got involved with myself, with the great Goddess and with courage I took my place again.

The retreat strengthens my devotion to my inner truth, to the Goddess, the commitment is nourished and strengthened. Sinking deep, letting go, receiving love and giving love with listening heart and ears, with loving touch. Meditation, movement, silence, loud and quiet-allowing individual expression, healing.

Deep gratitude for the dedication of Chameli and her continuation by so many indescribably unique sisters!!!!

Sarah Hirsch-Hoffmann

There is a place of outer and inner beauty where you are welcome just as you are. A circle of women coming together in sisterhood to support each other. We know that wisdom is within us and yet we often hide it and keep it under wraps unlived and thus the Goddess herself. 

Chameli is a precious teacher, a true keeper of the wisdom she delights in sharing and her team mindfully carries the whole and is always there for all.
