Guest Event: Yoni Steam Ceremony


Yoni Steam Ceremony FB Cover (1).jpg

Celebrate the sanctity of your womanhood in sacred ceremony as we arrive at the Aries New Moon on Saturday 6th April.

Connecting deeply to the Earth, our bodies and our inner worlds with the time-honoured wisdom and ritual of yoni steaming, these ceremonies are potent alchemy for transformation.

Come to land, connect with your sisters, embrace your precious body temple fully. Honour your journey, be as you are. Make space for whatever is needed for you to step into your truth and radiance and live it.

T H E W O M B

The womb (the actual organ and the the energetic space) is the ground of a woman’s power and well-being. Its balance and alignment impacts a woman on all levels of her being - physically, emotionally and spiritually.

As women, we are carrying wounds and traumas of shame, pain, guilt and separation in our wombs. Many of us have not been initiated or even told what it truly means to be a powerful rhythmic woman, with an embodied knowing of her sacredness. One that feels so deeply, that has access to profound wisdom at each stage of her cycle and life, one that has the capacity to vision and manifest deep healing for her world and the worlds around her. One that can always source embrace and an abundance of life-giving-love from the Earth.

If this is you, it no longer has to be your story, or the collective story or the story of our future generations.

A woman’s commitment to connect with her womb and reclaim herself can bring about radical change in every part of her life.
The womb is the centre of creativity, fertility and sexual energy. Whether a woman is wanting to conceive or not, all women can benefit from a ‘fertile’ body and mindset that is glimmering with vitality. One that is ripe and plump with life-force, embodied knowing and receptive to life and all that comes with it.


Y O N I S T E A M

Now is the time to wake up to the truth that are bodies are exceptionally powerful, wise and sacred. It’s time to come home to the temple within. Yoni steaming is a practice, tradition, science and ritual that supports women to do just this.

Yoni Steaming connects the body with the wisdom of subtle plant medicine to heal, clear the womb, pelvic bowl and sexual organs on a physical and energetic level.

It 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 - warmth to unravel and unwind. The time and space relax and release. The very act of allowing the whole yoni to relax and soften is radical healing in itself.

In this 4 hour day-retreat style ceremony, you will be supported to draw upon your innate power and wisdom to create harmony and balance from within, sink deeper towards your inner resources and enhance your capacity for sumptuous and attentive self love.

This is far from being a new health trend, it's an ancient tradition spanning thousands of years, making it’s resurgence in a time when finally, women are beginning to realise that their bodies are their own, when we are finally waking up to the immense value the wisdom of traditional indigenous medicine people hold, and what that can teach us in our modern lives.

Women in Central & South America, North Africa and East Asia (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. However, not only stop here, it has been shown to have a profound impact as treatment or supplementary to a holistic health care plan on a vast array of cyclical and female health imbalances that many women experience.

Yoni steaming connects us across cultures and time to our ancestors. Weaving traditional wisdom into our lives is a powerful act of reclamation of our inner medicine woman and earth keeper.

Amongst many others, steaming has been found to:
Eases menstrual and pelvic pain by warming the womb and bringing circulation to the pelvic bowl
Can support with bloating, exhaustion and digestive issues
Releases stagnation
Dissolves emotional and energetic blocks
Brings circulation to the pelvic bowl
Nourishes fertility
Increase sensation and sensuality
Invites an owning of own sexuality and creative power
Tends to sexual wounds
Clears ancestral trauma
Supports the body post-partum to rebalance and heal

Raya's prayer is pure and simple. "I feel it deeply imperative that every woman knows the wonder, power and pure sacredness of her womb" Raya is passionate about empowering women to own their womb space as a source of wisdom, nourishment and unbridled life force. She has heard the call that she is here to do her part in supporting women to rise beyond their limitations and to join forces with them, so that we may return all people back to their connection to the Earth and the Sacred.

Weaving together an inspired combination of embodied movement practices, healing modalities and sacred ceremonial ritual, she creates space with a loving, caring and down to earth approach, offering women the space to navigate in a way that feels truly in alignment with their soul, so that may harness their inner alchemy and embody their sovereign selves.
