Avalon Women's Retreat
A THREE DAY’s RADICAL SELF CARE PROJECT: 25-26-27 August
A RADICAL SELF CARE retreat dedicated to ourselves, only us... where we will share practices to better understand our bodies, particularly our cycles. A space for listening, pampering, dance, meditate, breathe, sing and wake up to our true essence. An encounter with ourselves where we can free ourselves from the burdens that no longer belong to us. A place of enjoyment, celebration and transformation.
And last but not least! We will have the opportunity to experience an amazing theater performance honouring the witch, the ancient mother, called HAG!
We will sing, sound, dance, massage, meditate, pray, be silent and connect with and share our magical and healing abilities in a safe and abundant environment.
This retreat is facilitated by Morgana Villén - Yonimam, Dymphi Peeters - Medicine Music and Healing Voice and Lindsay Jay - Flow Dance Meditation and will take place at Avalon Retreat Center in Den Hoorn.
Morgana will come to Avalon to help us free our sensual energy. The theme of this retreat is Water. We will connect with the water inside you and around you so all your juices can flow. The retreat is focused on opening your womb - heart - throat – crown – connection. To open your channel and to be and express your free authentic self. The dead water in our womb, due to anger, sadness, shame and trauma will become a fresh fountain again!
Dymphi: “I met Morgana last year in a Yogafit Retreat on Ibiza. When I came from the airport I was directed to meet the organiser of Yogafit Retreats: Lindsay who was participating in a workshop with Morgana. I joined in without knowing the name of workshop and we started to lay down on the ground. First I thought it was some kind of meditation then suddenly she was talking about lips and letting your juicy energy flow and connect with your womb energy! I then slowly began to realise what kind of workshop I had landed in (by the way, we kept our clothes on the whole time). 3 hours later I felt so fresh and renewed with life energy and a deep connection with a beautiful group of women around me.
So, this amazing woman and powerful priestess is called to come to Avalon in Den Hoorn to offer this retreat.
My speciality is working with the voice and intuitive music as a healing method. Our throat and our sexual organs come from the same cells from when we were an embryo. Everything you feel in the area of your sexual organs has an impact on the freedom of your voice and the freedom of your voice has an influence on the sensitivity of your sexual organs. When I started voice liberation and singing, my sexual sensitivity became much bigger in a positive way. I started to feel more energy and more enjoyment. You don’t need to be a good singer, but you can use your voice as a way to connect with your channel and the energy of the present moment. Our world consists of energy and vibration. Everything is frequency. Our organs and body have a frequency. Intention + sound = energy. So, being in the present moment and sounding your intentions is a powerful way to manifest what you want in life.”

The term 'witch' is used to oppress, to stigmatize, to curse, but the Witch is so much more. She is the wise woman, the indomitable, the bright one. Those who refuse to conform to our systems. She is that roaring hurricane that lives inside all of us, but most suppress in an effort to engage in socially desirable behavior: “Shut up, hold back, cover up, fuck off, behave yourself, please me.” She is the primal force, the razor-sharp intuition to which modern women turn deaf for fear of being declared crazy. Not if it's up to her. She appears all around us. And she will be free.
With this performance we dive into the ocean of our collective memory in search of the primal woman, the witch in all of us. To the words of a song we've long forgotten. We watch from behind her eyes. As invisible spectators, we wander through a moving labyrinth and come ridiculously close to an intimate ritual of finding and reclaiming, of knowing and madness.
