East Hanney, Oxfordshire

A weekend of camping in nature, women’s workshops and celebration

A wonder filled wellbeing women’s weekend filled with all things healing, embodied and fun.

Join us for a weekend of expansion of energy, deepening healing and getting into your delicious woman’s body. All in nature, events in the most beautiful barn, gorgeous garden, with trees, river, fires, ceremonies, healing, scrumptious food and more.

This gathering has been in dreaming for a while and now with the collaborative and unified creation with Rachel Cox the creator of the OM and BASS festival the S.H.E gathering is born!

Come and unite with us in sisterhood, under the sky, beneath the trees and upon Mother Earth. Gathering in our female tribe brings potency to our energetic work, magnetism to our being and wellbeing to mind, body and soul.

The gathering is super accessible in terms of age, ability and your current financial situation, no matter what it may be.

This event is 100% accessible, vegan food and single use plastic free.

We look forward to welcoming you SISTARS

Kalindi and Rach x

Creative Dream

The dream for this gathering came from both our different directions and when we met our ideas merged! I have wanted to create a gathering that encompasses playfulness, dance that is mindful, deep and prayer in motion, creating space for contemplation of  “Who do we each chose to be in these interesting times? “. To embrace the power of when woman comes together what gets ignited, the creative passion and the new waves of change that are possible get born!

Kalindi and Rach offer sensitivity, love and compassion with a big dollop of humour. We both have a keen sense of humour and believe in the magic of healing with laughter, as well as a good old cry…..both are experienced in holding space for individuals and large groups. You are in safe hands and hearts.

Here is a little bit of info about each of these womben.

Kalindi:

Its me! there is lots about me on this website, I will be bringing my own flavour of juiciness and sensuality to this gathering, exploring embodied intimacy and sexual vitality.

Rach:
Creator of Om and Bass wellbeing festival, yoga teacher and martial artist. I teach retreats around the world bringing in elements of dance and ancient martial arts in my workshops and events. My main workshop is Om and Bass Chakra Rave, but I also offer restorative relaxation classes and meditations.

Her workshop, rooted in the wisdom held in the menstrual cycle, will introduce women to a radical approach to their development that is central to girl’s and women’s health and pscho-spiritual growth. You will explore ways in which you can understand and nurture yourself as a woman through charting and interpreting your cycle and look at how cycle awareness supports you to tap into your unique gifts or Wild Power so that you can bring yourself more effectively and purposefully into life. Embracing cycle awareness helps dignify a woman, cultivates self worth, teaches her about her sensuality, sexuality and fertility, enhances her skills in relationship with others and guides her in how to harness her creative energy.

The talk:

Balancing Women Hormones with a Whole Foods Plant Based Diet

Hormones affect everything. Have you ever struggled with acne, oily hair, dandruff, dry skin, cramps, headaches, irritability, exhaustion, constipation, irregular cycles, heavy bleeding, clotting, shedding hair, weight gain, anxiety, insomnia, infertility, lowered sex drive, or bizarre food cravings and felt like your body was just irrational?

Improving hormonal health is a goal for women at every stage of their lives and medication and anti-depressants aren’t the only solutions. There are much better ways to balance your hormones and get your life back.

During this talk, we will focus on the impact of food and herbs on our hormonal balance and how we can use plants to our advantage.

Shamanic Trance Dance

Shamanic trance dance is a powerful inner journey of discovery that enables you to find the answers to your own questions. Journeying inwards to find your own answers to important life questions. We have a tendency to be always looking outside of ourselves for the answers, it is easy to believe that everyone else knows better. So take this opportunity to dance your way inside to seek your own wisdom.

Shamanic Trance Dance Rituals are held in a sacred space as a ritual, accompanied by the sounds of dynamic tribal rhythms, world music, ambient nature sounds, and the beat of the drum. Using effective ancient and innovative techniques that naturally and safely moves one into a ‘trance’ state of consciousness, where it becomes possible to enter the world of the spirit, to discover visions, guidance, wisdom, healing, empowerment, beauty and magic!
