DSC00755
Has been moved to ..
Friday 7th May  – Sunday 9th May 2021
 

Hill End, Oxfordshire

A weekend of camping in nature, women’s workshops, celebration and connection of our woman tribe.

Due to these global shifting times, we have moved the SHE gathering to May 2021 with the hope that the virus will have passed and a new behaviour within society will be forming. 

It will be a time for celebration, grieving, letting go, laughter, connection and coming together in community.

Join us for a weekend of expansion of energy, deepening healing and getting into your delicious woman’s body. Surrounded by nature, events all within indoor spaces, gorgeous tranquil landscape, with trees, pond, fires, ceremonies, healing, scrumptious food and more.

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 inspires vegan food and single use plastic free.

We look forward to welcoming each of you

Kalindi and Rach

 

” The SHE Gathering was a wonderful weekend of being with other real women. It was enlightening, raw, connecting, fun, gentle, spacious, beautiful, nourishing, wild and everything in between. In fact, just what I needed. Despite going alone and not knowing many people, it was easy to meet and connect with others. The venue was stunning, the food delicious and the workshops fabulous. I highly recommend it to any women looking for a deeper connection with herself and other women.” H

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.

KWALI KUMARA

In order to be fully realised beings of healthiness, happiness and holiness we must bring the body to a state of harmony. In order to do this we need a spiritual tool kit ! Learn with Kwali Kumara how to balance your chakras and corresponding organs with the powerful technology of Kundalini Yoga and Gong Meditation. 

This workshop is open to all and very welcoming to beginners as Kwali will give an overview of the chakra system and how they affect us in the physical world. 

Awakening the Ten bodies 

We are made up of eight chakras and ten bodies. The Physical body, three mental bodies and six energy bodies. When bought into balance they culminate in the eleventh embodiment which produces the purest state of higher consciousness. 

Together we will integrate our intentions for the year ahead with a combination of movement, meditation, mantra , pranayama and sacred sound. 

Everyone welcome and beginners especially as Kwali will give an overview of the theme if it’s a new concept for you.

Healers offerings

LUCY BLOOMFIELD – MASSAGE

I am passionate about massage for its physical, mental and spiritual benefits.

I am trained in Swedish massage, Indian head massage and deep tissue techniques. I also do hopi ear candles.

I spent some time in Crete last year working in a 5*spa doing Creten massage and deep tissue massage

But where I feel most at home is in a field full of like minded women doing what I love…

Healing through the power of touch.

 

SITKE – SHAMANIC HEALING

Shamanic healing is ancient, it draws on the powers of the universe, elemental forces and all the spirits of nature. Each of us is a very powerful being. I hold space for you to reconnect to your personal power and self creation. Unlocking energies that are locked by trauma and conditioned beliefs as we open to source energy and infinite possibilities. Holding space to move through feelings to refind self-love and love for life.

Get involved

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS…

There are some fabulous opportunities to volunteer at S.H.E gathering from being part of the set up crew, a steward and info team. These are limited spaces so if you feel you are unable to afford a ticket please sign up to be a space guardian…

We are asking for volunteers to pay a £50 deposit that will be refunded to you after the gathering and you have done your delicious shifts. We experienced last year a lot of volunteers decide not to turn up which sadly puts unnecessary pressure on the ones that do come. We specifically chose a number of volunteers that we need to make the festival flow smoothly to support our sisters to have a sweet time as well as ourselves.

Thank you for your help.

Please email us if you are interested…
