Queen....take your Crown and Wear it!
Goddesses, I am 52, in my wisdom years and feel more empowered, more energised, more inspired and excited about life than ever before! Yet, the social conditioning is that this is a time to be dreaded and filled with unwanted symptoms. It doesn't have to be that way. There is another way and I am passionate about sharing it with you!!
This is our time for truly stepping into our power, to be become bolder, more comfortable in our skin, to even be a bit outrageous (what fun). Menopause should be a celebrated time of initiation as we become the medicine woman, the wise woman and become the Queen of our lives.
This is how it is for me!! As I approached my mid to late forties, I found my crown, wearing it tentatively at first - now it sits there comfortably! Finally I am the Queen of my own life.
So, Goddesses (and maybe that word makes you cringe too?), what do the words peri-menopause and menopause say to you? Through all of the women that I work with and my friends and seekers on the path, I am hearing that for many this is a time of discomfort, apathy, low energy, aches and pains, depression, anxiety, insomnia, weight gain etc.
it seems like this is still even slightly taboo and taken that this is just the way it is and our only choice is to just put up with it, or take synthetic hormones as we go on a slow decline towards old age!
NO, NO, NO!!! It doesn't have to be this way and I don't believe it should be this way.
What if, instead, we were to see this as part of the Heroines Journey. Here there is another threshold to cross, much like the one of puberty, but this time Goddesses, this is an initiation into our power.
We become the wise woman.
We become the medicine woman.
This is a time to be celebrated!
The word crone comes from CROWN. Are you ready to take your crown and be the QUEEN of your life? It's time to let go of the patterns that keep us small, and step away from conditioning that may have made us feel that we are less valuable, less worthy (instead of more so) so that we embrace, yes EMBRACE this empowered stage of our lives.
I am so passionate about creating a tribe of women who see this as a positive, exciting, juicy, rich phase and who are empowered to realise we have a choice.
Who is joining me on the journey to find their crown and become the Queen, the sovereign of their own life? What if you saw this stage as one to be celebrated, embraced and cherished?
Yoga and more...
This is an exciting collaboration between the fabulous staff at Can Shui, with Remko the chef, Anais for voice work, and Sebastian for bodywork.
As this is November, the hours of sunlight will be less and it will be cooler, but there will still be stunning sea views and usually blue skies and warmth in Ibiza at this time of the year. We are still hoping to have some afternoon yoga practices outside warming our bodies and connecting to nature and we will also take advantage of the stunning indoor spaces to make cosy, nurturing spaces for workshops and group and one to one work.
Imagine candlelit dinners, cosy chats, deep inner work, movement, bodywork, meditation, personal and spiritual transformation, as well as connection, community and lightheartedness, and of course Can Shui's unique hospitality and the most amazing healthy and delicious plant based food from Remko!!
Each yoga practice will be creatively designed to allow you to awaken to and embrace your current stage of womanhood and to cultivate radical self acceptance and love. There will also be optional early morning meditation and evening yoga nidra to allow you to journey deeper into your soul, discover inner resources you didn't know you had and drift off into the most amazing deep sleep ever!
I am fortunate to have two very special yoga teachers in my life, Delamay Devi and Alessandra Pecorella, both Shiva Rea affiliate teachers and absolutely amazing human beings and teachers.....as well as bringing the wisdom, practices and magic I have learned from these two, I will be bringing along my years of study and research into Depth Coaching and especially feminine archetypes. We will weave the magic together on this week.
Can Shui Luxury Villa
Can Shui is the new Feng Shui designed venue as part of Morna Retreats Ibiza. It is more than a venue. It is a feeling. Eery room, every terrace, every inch of the gardens has a stroy to tell. But more than that it will help you to connect to your own story - your emotions, and yourself.
Can Shui is set on a cliff, directly overlooking the most mesmerising view of the landscape falling into the sea - it feels like it could be the edge of the world. With its location in the north of the Island, it allows guests to be entranced by the Ibizan sunset every day. Next to the grounds there is a rustic cliff path leading to a small secret beach. It is so romantic it will allow you to reconnect with the most important relationship you have in life - with yourself.
When you think of Feng Shui you automatically think minimalist - this is different. The thought and passion that has gone into collecting the art, the furniture and the materials will take your breath away. It will take you on a journey during your stay, both visually and personally. For a retreat venue you couldn't ask for more.
There are several choices of stunning accommodation. You can choose between beautiful deluxe Shiva and Shakti suites with stunning sea views; sharing the absolutely stunning Ananda Mega suite with 3 other like-minded ladies, having beautiful twin yin / yang room with shared bathroom, or for the ultimate luxury treating yourself to the Santosha suite, a luxury 4 poster bed suite.
The Santosha Suite
Moroccan suite (double) with XL shower in room for 1 person (or two friends who don't mind sharing a double bed)
In a courtyard peacefully tucked away from the main house, behind a grand wooden, antique door, lies this stunning suite. The dramatic double-height ceiling creates the perfect setting for this luxurious room. From the privacy of the four-poster bed a clever one-way window allows views out to the sea across the courtyard for its guests. Further the room boasts a fireplace, an incredible ceiling-height waterfall shower, twin sinks, and a separate en suite bathroom with toilet. Moroccan influences throughout the suite give the feeling of being in a beautiful Riad. It is truly quite special.
Shiva / Shakti Suites
Twin bedroom suite with shower in the bedroom, private terrace and insane sea views (1-2 people - can be twin or double)
As you enter the light-filled Shiva and Shakti, your eyes will immediately be drawn to the phenomenal sea view through the floor to ceiling windows. As your focus settles on the room and décor you will not be disappointed. Both suites have stunningly designed in-room bathrooms with twin sinks and glass encased showers allowing you to shower whilst admiring that breath-taking view. As with all of the rooms the toilet is in a separate room for the utmost privacy. (Can Shui has cute "do not disturb" signs that you can hang on the door so that you can shower in privacy)
The rooms each have their own private balcony offering the perfect place for some quiet time or a luxurious pamper session. Both rooms can be configured as a twin or double.
Yin and Yang rooms
Two delightful rooms, one with a nautical / sea vibe and the other with tones of olive - offer comfortable twin accommodation with a shared bathroom. Both have dreamy views through the olive tree branches and gardens, with a sea-view backdrop in the distance. They are both conveniently located next to the amazing zen den for some chill out space.
Ananda Mega Suite
The Ananda (meaning bliss) Mega Suite with open-plan bathroom, 4 single beds, a living area and shower in 2nd room to ensure privacy.
Mega by name, mega by nature the Ananda suite allows groups of friends or solo travellers a unique opportunity to share in an utterly luxurious manner. This is no dorm! More than a suite the space offers an extremely spacious area to sleep four social souls; walk-in wardrobes and dressing area; an (semi) open-plan dramatic bathroom with bath, shower and enclosed toilet; and a second adjoining room with lounging area and private bathroom with additional shower and enclosed toilet. And the living space has its own balcony set in a romantic curved turret.
The main room has oor to ceiling windows allowing both light to pour in adding to the elegance and warmth of the room and for guests to wonder at the spectacular views of the cliffs falling into the sea. These slide open onto a private balcony - that would be a divine space for a massage or pampering treatment.
We will have our own chef who will provide us with a daily morning healthy and healing juice, a delicious breakfast feast, wholesome, organic and healthy plant based lunches and dinners that will nourish our body and soul.
In addition there will be a daily fruit bowl, teas and unlimited water.
My mouth is watering already! Is yours?
