“Sessions like this are creating a ‘better’ world. ‘Better’ means beautiful, mystical, loving, compassionate, in this case, I’m not sure, verbal language is limited. Thank you everyone for the safe and meaningful journey. Infinite love.”  - Annamaria
 

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. 

~~~

Landing under the light of the Gemini Full Moon, we allow ourselves to become receptive to divine inspiration through body, breath and stillness. 

We find ourselves in a liminal space, as the world tilts on its axis taking us into the darkest time of the year. This is the time of regeneration and rebirth, where we allow outworn parts of ourselves to fall away and enter into the darkness of the feminine mystery. What we shed creates a fertile ground for the new visions to be planted and to grow, and so through this process of letting go we can make way for something new, and more aligned with our truest essence.

The Womb is the keeper of the dark inner mysteries, which in the old ways was seen as a living spirit, the matrix of life. Here we will find the power within to journey into the unknown, with confidence and trust in ourselves and our abilities. Taking inspired leaps of the imagination, we recognise our ability to create our reality through our dreams, forming our decisions through our intuition and knowing - that the greatest wisdom lies within our bodies and our bones. 

"Absolutely amazing. Bryony is such an incredible teacher - so humble, gentle, and goes at the perfect pace. Really grateful to be a part of this group of wonderful women." - Maddy

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.

 

Ritual and Myth

 

"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.

"Engaging, informative and magic. An alchemical combination which moved me deeply. Thank you!" - Sara

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

"Bryony has such a lovely grounded energy and made us feel welcome. It was an unexpected journey filled with joy, tears, discomfort, vulnerability, joy and gentleness. I felt so calm but also tender after the session and out of my head which is a wonderful experience. I have already signed up for the next one and look forward to her course during summer. It is good to connect to your womb and reconnect to the female inside you we hide too often. Thank you for a beautiful experience." - Emel Gunay

"I felt super connected after only 4 minutes while doing the warm-up with this incredible bunch of women. I released so much emotional weight, that I knocked out in the last half an hour, apologies Bryony, your healing session was wonderful. I had a good 10-hour sleep after, which was much needed." - Annamaria

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.
