Guest Event with Lorraine
Celebrate the sanctity of your womanhood in sacred ceremony this Winter Solstice and last Full Moon of the year. Connecting deeply to the Earth, our bodies and our inner worlds with the time-honoured ritual of yoni steaming, these ceremonies are potent alchemy for transformation.
As the year draws to a close, we meet on the shortest day and longest night to honour the dark and the stillness, whilst welcoming in the light and new beginnings through our portal of creation and pure life force, the womb/yoni*
Come to connect with your sisters, embrace yourself fully, sow the fruit of your journey, be as you are, shift through blockages , take stock of this past cycle, plant prayer seeds for the year ahead, whatever is needed to support you to step more fully into your truth and radiance.
With the sweet plant allys as your guides, you will be supported to draw on your innate power and wisdom to create harmony from within, sink deeper into your inner resources and unfurl your capacity for sumptuous and attentive self love. You can expect to leave feeling a deeper affinity with your womb space, having given her the permission and voice to speak through you.
And for some yuletide sparkle, we will close with festive hot choc and treats (plant-based loveliness of course)!
Yoni Steaming offers women the opportunity to reconnect the body with the wisdom of subtle plant medicine to heal, clear the womb and sexual organs on a physical and energetic level, and prepare it for its intended use, creation (not only for babies, but for the creation of ourselves and our lives).
Ultimately, vaginal/womb/yoni steaming/hydrotherapy is an empowering self care practice that invites women to fully drop into the realm of their inner sanctum and offer her exactly what she needs - space and time to relax and release. The very act of allowing your whole yoni to relax and soften is radical healing in itself.
This is far from being a new health trend, it's an ancient tradition made modern; a knowledge and practice shared among communities of women the world over, for thousands of years. Women in central America, Morocco and Korea (to name but a few) still continue to practice it to this day, as a regular self care regime, to support fertility and as a postpartum treatment.
The benefits not only stop here, as it has a profound impact on a vast array of cyclical and gynecological health imbalances that many women experience and can be utilised as a treament or supplementary to a holistic health care plan to support specific issues.
Amongst many others, steaming has been found to:
~ Reduce pain, bloating and exhaustion during menstruation
~ Balance and regulate hormones
~ Boost fertility (not only for conception, but for manifestation and creation purposes!)
~ Detox the womb and remove toxins from the body
~ Support the body postpartum
~ Assist with digestive issues.
~ Increase sensuality
~ Release stored emotions, trauma and energetic stagnancy
~ Tap into latent energy where our creative and sexual life source arises from.
When women take part in a yoni steam in a held, ceremonial space as a collective of sisters, a deep communion takes place. They anchor into the lineage of this ancient practice, directly communicate with nature and the feminine web as well as honouring themselves powerfully.
