The womb is a place of alchemy. Within her void like chamber, holds the capacity to trans-mutate energy, the current of life force from one form to another.

As the interface of elemental and cosmic rhythms, the womb offers a gateway through which one can travel through and to the other-world. Undergoing a process of transfiguration we journey to the cavern of creation,- with breath and imagination we can transform anything to gold. This is a path to empowerment, a deep remembrance of something ancient within us, which many of us are being called to awaken. 

...

So as the wheel of the year enters High Summer, we come together as a hive to celebrate the ancient Feast Day of Lammas, landing under the light of the Full Moon to dream with our Wombs and the Earth. This potent time of year contains within it the fullness and fulfillment of the present harvest, and containing within it the seed of all future harvests. 

This is the Union of the Earth and Sun, seeing what of the dreams we planted in spring have beckon ripe to harvest, and what visions we lay down to become nutrients for the next cycle. Remembering ourselves as part of the cycles of the Earth, we allow ourselves to come into a state of surrender, knowing as one dream is laid to rest another will emerge. Continuing along this spiral path, we flow continuously through the ever-changing seasons, as seen on Earth and within our own bodies. 

This is the process of shedding skins, continually allowing ourselves to grow, transform and die again. As witness in the waxing and waning in the Moon, we also see in our own Wombs the transmutation of matter into one form to the other, such as through the shedding of menstrual blood and the birthing of our creations.

So you are invited to return once again to the virtual temple, to bring the luminous light onto your weave and see what golden threads want to emerge from the depths of your being.

...

As we begin to embody the wisdom within us, we can grow a deeper trust and sense of acceptance towards ourselves, honouring the inner knowing that we have when we let our intuition and our womb lead the way. 

"A ritual is the enactment of a myth. And, by participating in the ritual, you are participating in the myth. And since myth is the projection of the depth of wisdom of the psyche, by participating in ritual, participating in myth, you are being, as it were, put in accord with that wisdom, which is the wisdom that is inherent within you anyhow. Your consciousness is being reminded of the wisdom of your own life." ~ Joseph Campbell

Following the methodologies of ritual, we undergo the process of separation from the mundane, transformation through weaving magic into being, and integration by expressing creatively our experiences. Using tools of shamanic practices, sound, breath, meditation, movement and womb yoga - we will uncover those parts of our inner being, that are often concealed behind the diaphanous veil, reclaiming our sexual sovereignty 

Whilst we embrace these wildly uncertain times, this gathering will be a soothing balm to nourish the spirit, and to come together as a hive to honour the ways in which we are connected. The feminine principle in spirituality is all that is witnessed ritual, dance, creativity, and emotion. Through coming together as a group, we experience the invisible web that connects us all, the matrix matris. Our experiences amplified through the collective journey, as we each meet with our own cista mystica, and witnessing the other, as she comes into her flowering.

Testimonials

"Participating in The Serpent & the Bee was such a beautiful and profound experience for me - with Bryony's beautiful and wise presence and guidance, I went so deeply into my own self, meeting myself in a way I never have before, connecting within in a powerful and illuminating way. I am so grateful to have been a part of this beautiful and mellifluous gathering, and to have also come away with some wonderful tools for my ongoing journey. I hope to be able to work with Bryonia again soon on this path." ~ Candice Kali Snow, Participant of The Serpent & The Bee Online Workshop

 

"Weaving poetry with divine mystery...Gently holding and intuitively creating the space for deep awakening and inner journeying... Bryony is the perfect conduit between this realm and the other worlds." ~ Rafaele Willow, Artist & Musician

 

"So blessed to deep dive like that with you and the other women. I felt as though there was a golden web created and a sacred container, even if it was online. I have a lot more journeying to do with the bee and serpent. Thank you so much for that beautiful introduction - or remembering!" ~ Stephanie, Participant of The Serpent & The Bee Online Workshop

 

"Drum journeying, plant remedies, dream visioning and dragon dreaming...I was able to connect more with my womb, see past things that may have affected that I didn't realise, it's really powerful. the dragon dreaming - is really cosmic! I can't really explain it! Different from other womb work I've been to, not just talking about feelings but really taking you on a journey." Jade, Singer/Songwriter & Artist

About your facilitator

Bryony is an initiate of a hidden, yet very much alive, ancient women's shamanic tradition, whose origins stem from the British Isles, Eastern Europe, and the temples of old in Greece, and Crete.

Having been a student and teacher of yoga for many years, specialising in Womb Yoga and Yoga Nidra, Bryony stumbled across this living pathway by a series of synchronicities and serendipitous events. This rich tradition leads the walkers of it's ways into a more empowered, and enriched life, equipping them with the tools to stand both firmly planted in the earth, whilst exploring their inner sensual and stellar selves. Skilled in bridging worlds and turning the mundane to magic, she invites those willing to dive deep, to come to the betwixt and between and discover the sweetness that it holds. 

The fusion of Bryony's training in yoga and shamanic practice allows her to navigate the architecture of holding sacred space - through ceremony, classes, workshops, retreats and one on one sessions. She offers alternative and nourishing methods for students and clients alike to discover their own medicine through movement, magic, myth and mystery school teachings. 

Hers is an ongoing inquiry - committed to the path of learning and discovery, she continues to develop her work through shamanic and yoga training and a dedicated daily practice.

 

Preparation

~This event requires free zoom account which you can set up here: https://zoom.us 

Instructions on how to join will be included in your confirmation email. 

~Due to the womb-centric nature of this work, it is open to womb-keepers, whether or not you still have your physical womb, those who identify as women and non-binary are welcome. It is for those individuals who seek a stronger connection to their inner Creatrix.

~A blindfold and some blankets & cushions may assist in some of the practices, along with a journal and some simple drawing materials.

~You are invited to set up a small altar in the room you will be working in, to set a sacred space for yourself. This can include for example a candle, flowers and any items that reflect to you the nature of the earth.

~It would be helpful to be working in a quiet space in which you won't be disturbed, having some space to move, and the lighting dimmed.
