2.5 Day Sacred Feminine Awakening Retreat
Retreat dates: 19-21 July 2019
Willow Jayne, Four Winds Trained Shamanic Practitioner and Womb Awakening Sacred Feminine Alchemist, will be hosting the first of her Sacred Feminine Awakening Retreat series on the theme of "Healing the Wounds of Love".
Every wound of separation holds a key to the heart. When we run away from feelings like anger, jealousy, fear, disappointment and irritation, they hold us back from Love. When we lean in to these spaces, we experience greater freedom in our relationship to self and others.
The wounds of love - betrayal, denial, separation, judgement and abandonment, are held within the mind, psyche and body of us all, waiting to be deeply embraced in the warmth of love. Over our 2.5 day retreat, we will begin our journey to alchemise these wounds of love.
Healing the Wounds of Love
Do you wish to uncover a deeper level of intimacy within yourself and your relationships?
Do you wish to discover your vulnerability, allowing the most tender and raw aspects of yourself to be seen?
Do you wish to attract your soul mate, bring forgiveness into past or current relationships, or deepen your connection to your current partner?
Do you wish to tend to your heart? To clear the energetic residue of past lovers that's preventing you from opening your heart on this Path of Love?
Do you wish to be FREE in your expression of LOVE and release all that is holding you back?
Then this is for you.
Over our 2.5 day retreat, we will be begin our journey to alchemise the wounds of love, with the healing balm of the anointments of love.
Betrayal > Trust
Denial > Truth
Judgment > Forgiveness
Separation > Surrender
Abandonment > Service
Designed for anyone who is wishing to open their hearts, bodies, womb/hara, mind and spirit into a deeper embodiment of Love. Sacred Feminine Alchemy is an embodied spiritual path that is centred around activating the natural primordial flow of creative life force energy in the Womb (women) and Hara (men), centred around bringing the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine energies within into balance and union.
This retreat can support those wishing to release deep emotional and sexual traumas, mental illness, and women’s health conditions such as painful/no cycles and endometriosis. It can also help entrepreneurs with business manifestation and connecting to their true soul purpose through Love. This retreat is open to both men and women.
The Wounds of Love
Betrayal - Betrayal of self or another: it can show up as the other person not being able to meet our needs, truths withheld, abuse of power, lies untold, sexual infidelity, coldness, absenteeism, withdrawing sexual interest, taking your partner for granted, emotional cheating, not standing up for your partner, or using your partner’s vulnerability and insecurity against them.
Denial - lying, side stepping, or maneuvering around telling the truth to either another or ourselves. The more we deny, lie, deceive, withhold and conceal, the more we move away from love. It can also manifest as denying the truth of our feelings, knowing, expression and withholding what we truly wish to speak and express, or denying pain from circumstances in our relationships.
Judgment - Whether it is judgement of self or another, it’s the critical inner voice that makes us feel insecure, compares, and becomes jealous. We see the other, and ourselves through this wound that distorts the true nature of ourselves, the other and circumstances. The only way to support this wound being melted is through forgiveness.
Separation - This wound sees us becoming icy and cold, choosing to move into a state of numbness. We lose all sense of feeling, love and connection towards our beloved; all warmth becomes cold. When you are deeply hurting inside, and feeling a well of pain, you are given the choice to either move into that, sharing your wound or pain and vulnerability, or to let this wound play out.
Abandonment - This wound feels like a heaviness, a downward loss of energy that feels like there's a sense of dread, depression, not being loveable, not being loved, not being seen or held, and not being embraced or feeling included. This depletion of energy reveals how this wound is really connected around the feminine and our life force energy, because when we feel abandoned or rejected, we then feel disconnected from ourselves, life, love and our sense of purpose in the world.

Venue and Accommodation
Krishna Village is located on a beautiful organic farm in the scenic foothills of Mt. Warning, half way between Byron Bay and the Gold Coast. Closest town is Murwillumbah, and the nearest airport Coolangatta (the Gold Coast airport).
We can host up to 85 people in a combination of rooms, dorms and camping spots. There are usually around 30 full time volunteers who work in our organic gardens and maintain the grounds, 15-20 retreat guests or Karma Yogis and up to 40 course participants on a variety of courses that may run parallel in our different teaching venues.
All rooms have shared amenities. The amenities blocks include showers, toilets and a coin operated laundry (byo laundry powder).
Common areas include the kitchen & campfire area (the heart of the Krishna Village), the reading room (with Internet hotspot) and the yoga hall where we gather for classes.
Single, twin share & double rooms in our refurbished shipping containers
The Krishna Village offers 3 double rooms (1 big bed), 4 twin share rooms (bunk bed) and 11 single rooms in former shipping containers. They have been renovated and turned into simple but comfortable accommodation, each with a beautiful wooden verandah, shared by 3 or 4 adjacent rooms. Bedding is being provided.
Set among beautiful mango and lychee trees in our eastern garden, our camp ground can host up to 20 tents and 5 camper vans. The area for the vans is equipped with electricity. The amenities block is only 50m away.
Delicious Vegetarian Food
The Krishna Farm has been producing organic veggies since the 1980s and has therefore fantastic conditions to grow excellent produce. We grow as much of our own food as we can, and otherwise buy locally wherever possible.
We provide 3 delicious vegetarian meals every day, with lunches taking place at the Krishna Village community kitchen, and breakfast and dinners - mostly Indian style - served at the prasadam hall, next to the temple.
All our food is prasadam - sacred food prepared in a consciousness of loving service. Like in other cultures, we offer our food before we eat to say Grace and thank the Divine for the sun, the rain, and all the visible and invisible blessings necessary to co-create a delicious meal. Feel free to sing along with us, or just listen and enjoy...
The Krishna Farm
Nestled in the foothills of Mount Warning, in the heart of the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, the Krishna Farm “New Govardhana” is a 1000 acre property with orchards, certified organic veggie gardens, cows, horses, streams and swimming holes in abundance.
New Govardhana serves as an ashram to a community of yogis who aspire to live according to their deepest vows and commitments on their path of service, spiritual contentment and happiness, Bhakti Yoga.
