Resting in the Embrace of the Dark Goddess

We warmly welcome you to a deeply relaxing and nourishing Dark Goddess mini retreat on Saturday, October 30, at 10 a.m. PDT, 1 p.m. EDT, 19:00 CEST


Resting in the embrace of the Dark Goddess

We are entering the time of the year when the veils between the worlds are thin, and the wisdom from the deep is more available to us.

We will meet on Zoom, and you can choose to have the camera on or off; whatever feels the most supportive to you.

We will give ourselves the gift of slow and sensual embodiment practices, soul stirring storytelling, heart/womb contemplation, deep listening and rest.

Make a soft and cozy space for yourself, light a candle and give yourself the gift of letting go all efforting and striving; resting into a more receptive and natural way of being.


Deep in the darkness of the womb of my body
lies the seed from which all was born.
I feel this seed.
It’s always there.
It’s unchanging, yet always giving birth to new life.
Light in dark.
Life from death.
Eternity in this moment.
Everything in nothing.
When I lose grounding, when I forget,
when the chaos is more than I feel I can handle,
I simply come back to this seed,
and from here I am born anew.
~ Julie Daley
