The Way of Moon, workshop and retreat for women
With Christiana Harle
Place: Vuoton Joutsen, 91300 Ylikiiminki, Northern Finland
So she/he circles around us. In Tuva the Moon is a male: you never know where and when he shows up, rises! We are Blessed by the light of the moon, kith in the heavens. The Mistress in the Moon, the Man in the Moon, the Hare… but what do you know of Moon? This workshop we learn about Moon. Anyone who wants to deepen their work outdoors, with the land, with magic, eco psychology, nature guides, with healing, gardening, oceans, with cycles and rites of passage are welcome.
Throughout cultures in the World Moon has an impact on our lives physically, even mentally, so the people say. There is folklore, tales, folk beliefs, teachings about Moon. My teacher for this was the moon, my birth-father and then in very practical terms, Annette Høst. She refers to it as “Magic Moon University”!
Layers upon layers are found within the Moon Circle. The teachings are woven in practical and spiritual paths, being indoor and outdoor experiences. We work through images, cycles and the rites of passage within the female or male cycles (for now each gender has its own workshop) in a broad sense as well as personal journey. Through shamanic journeying we gather information, insights, and teachings of this magical being of Sky.
This is a good follow-up workshop after Shaman’s journey basic workshop as we strengthen our connections with our helpers, the Spirits of Nature and techniques of journeying.
A workshop in basic shamanic journeying is necessary for participation.
If you are interested and not familiar to this way, please contact Christiana for more information.
This workshop is in English, Finnish translation as needed.
Place: Vuoton Joutsen, Ylivuotto, Northern Finland. We are situated in nature with streams, lake, forest right outside the door. See below! This time of the year is usually deep snow still (bring your skiis or snowshoes, also able to rent) that is excellent for being outdoors during the day and being with the heavens at night. If all goes well, there will be some clear nights and perhaps the Aurora Borealis will grace us too. The sauna will be heated for bathing as well as sacred sauna and ceremony.
When your reservation is received you will receive more information as to what to bring with you (drum and or rattle). Refunds given should the retreat-workshop minimum not be met.
* single room available for small extra fee.
Vuoton Joutsen is located in the country village Ylivuotto, at the heart of silence, 50 minutes from the city of Oulu. Facilities situated by the lake and by the River Kiiminkijoki.
