“Dear Pleasing, I’m leaving you for Pleasure”
– Sarah Durham Wilson
Dear mid-life woman,
It is with great pleasure I can share with you that we are at last able to begin residential retreats.
The Emergence Retreat is a collaboration between Jo Kemp and myself.
Jo Kemp, of The Way of Soma fame, is a highly experienced Yoga and Menopause Yoga Teacher, a skilled Yoga Therapist, Senior Dynamic Yoga Teacher and Teacher Trainer specialising in Breathwork and Nervous System trainings. She takes a somatic embodied approach to Yoga and her work is trauma informed.
Between us, we have over 40 years of teaching experience and have led many retreats in various locations over the years.
As perimenopausal women, both Jo and I share the view that mid-life transition can be a powerful portal for transformation, where we can get to know ourselves anew, embrace change, and emerge with a deeper connection to our innate wise woman wisdom and all the power that brings.
The Emergence Retreat is for women looking to step into and embrace mid-life as strong, empowered and embodied women.
It’s a space for women at all stages of their perimenopause/menopause journey to share, learn and explore a variety of activities and practices together and importantly take as much rest as needed.
The Retreat Experience
🗸 Three days of nourishment and complete restoration.
🗸 In a spectacular venue overlooking one of the prettiest coves in the Costa Brava, with access to beautiful walks and lush nature.
🗸 A beautiful fusion of practices including Somatic Movement, Yoga Nidra, deeply nourishing Restorative and Menopause Yoga, soothing Breathwork for menopause and practices for healthy bones and pelvic wellbeing.
🗸 Plenty of time for open sharing with our women’s circles, womb space massage, informal presentations and informative chats on all things menopause around the dinner table.
🗸 Opportunities to explore creative expression in a variety of forms, including dance, intuitive movement, photography and journaling.
🗸 An invitation to relax deeply, to respect the pause in menopause, enjoying time in great company and time to be fully with yourself.
🗸 Therapeutic full body and facial massage to support deep relaxation and rejuvenation with our highly experienced therapist.
🗸 Healthy and nutritious food with an emphasis on hormone balance, bone health and supporting the menopausal microbiome.
🗸 Post-retreat, a pack of recorded practices, reflections and guides on the various subjects that we have explored during the retreat so you can continue to feel supported once you return home.
Through everything we explore together we hope to guide you into a deeper connection with your own inner wisdom so that you may leave feeling a new sense of autonomy and intuitive ability to make wise choices for yourself that will nourish and sustain you through this time of your life.
