A sacred gathering of women in honour of the divinity of the womb space -the womb being the vessel, the caretaker, the carrier of life itself. It is the womb that births all into being.
Through our Womb Blessing Circle, we pay homage to the ancient traditions and rituals that held the knowing of the importance of honouring, celebrating and witnessing a woman in her divinity. May we turn toward the rites of passage passed down through our matriarchal lineages, paying homage to the sacred wisdom of honouring.
During our time together, each woman will receive an Ayurvedic Womb Basti. Womb Basti is rooted in traditional Ayurvedic practise, and is the pooling of warm sesame oil within a dough encasement over the womb, left to sit for time to deeply nurture the womb. Womb Basti is a rite of passage that honours and nurtures the womb throughout cycles of menstruation, during early pregnancy, the sacred window of postpartum, and throughout menopause. Our womb spaces crave warmth, particularly during the Vata Apana Vayu (downward moving energy) time of our bleed. The warming qualities of sesame oil, deeply nourishes and soothes the womb, aiding in the softening of release of tension held within the womb space.
Our Womb Basti Ceremony will be followed by a sound bath featuring the harp, Tibetan singing bowls, koshi chimes and gong, allowing space to integrate the beauty and blessings received from our ceremony. We will then move through the chanting of Sanskrit mantra, chanting mantras that hold the essence of remembrance, drawing us into union, and awakening us to the Divine Mother within the womb, as well as the Divine Mother that is our Earth. Our gathering will close ceremonially, followed by a sharing circle to bring forward and honour the experiences of our Blessing Circle.
As we gather together, may the Divine Mother within each of us honour the Divine Mother within one another.
