The Creative Feminine
Saturday 2nd March 2019
1 - 4 pm
Benk + Bo, 4 - 6 Gravel Lane, London E1 7AW
A sister circle to explore truth, freedom and expression through voice, movement and ritual.
We will come together as sisters in our shared vulnerability to connect, to explore, to express freely. To heal old karmic wounds of shame, jealousy and making each other small through bringing our voices together, through moving together, singing our hearts out together, through sharing freely and exploring our own unique essence, together.
Now is the time to unleash the gates so that the creative feminine, Shakti Ma, can move through us, wildly and unobstructed, so that we may ride our own power in a way that lifts up everyone around us.
We are innately creative beings, longing to express ourselves in every way, and when that wild flame is not tended to we feel flat and uninspired and separated.
We will work with clearing blocked energy within the three gateways of voice, heart and yoni (our sexual centre and womb space) to open up to the magical field of creative potentiality, playful expression and our shared humanity.
Open to those who identify as women.
Opening to Light and Pleasure

What if someone told you that pleasure is a practice?
…and that experiencing whole body pleasure does not come from chasing only the flavours that we find sweet, but from flowering open to receive life in its wild and full-spectrum vulnerable expression.
What if someone told you that light can be found even in the darkest of places, and that to open to the light that simultaneously is all around and is infinitely pouring itself out of the very source of you, you must allow the cracking open of the fibrils of your being, you must allow for both the unraveling and the re-birthing of what you are, which is always full, always whole, always free, always infinitely creating the mystery that is you, the mystery that is existence.
What if every experience was an invitation to attune to more and more exquisite intimacy with your own beating pulsating unprecedented creative aliveness?
In this juicy one day Light and Pleasure ritual, we will meditate, breathe, move, pray, chant, release, write, set intentions with a heart warming cacao and sound ceremony, nourish the body temple and awaken wonder and delight.
The workshop will be an antidote to our tendency to numb out and shut off from life, and an initiation into living a life of whole body feeling and attuning.
‘Wherever you are is the entry point.’
The day will include a nourishing and delicious lunch.
Wear something that feels good to move in, bring something warm and a pen and notepad.

OMPOWERMENT EMPOWERS REFUGEES TO LEAD THEMSELVES IN THE HEALING PRACTICE OF TRAUMA INFORMED YOGA.
Yoga is effective for alleviating mental, physical and emotional stress. Refugees worldwide have long benefited from yoga but access to the practice has been dependent on volunteer availability. By empowering refugees to teach and lead themselves, this healing practice can continue regardless of volunteer skillsets and availability.
We provide free, week-long trainings that equip refugees with the skills to create a safe space in their communities, free of labels and judgement, in which men and women can relieve anxiety and build confidence and self-esteem.
