EMPOWERED MENOPAUSE - A retreat for women

LISTING > Womens Health, Personal Development Retreat in Western Cape

 

Dear Women,

You are warmly invited to a retreat to honour and celebrate the powerful rite of passage and transformation that menopause can offer.

We will spend a wintry weekend cocooning in comfortable rustic accommodation, eating delicious meals together and connecting to nature, at the beautiful Hearth and Soul Retreat Centre.

Using tools and resources, the sanctuary of sisterhood, stillness, creativity and movement, (no experience needed), we will explore the significant physical, emotional and spiritual changes that the years of Peri- Menopause and Menopause bring.

By embracing this profound natural change in the cycles of our lives, with awareness and acceptance, we can harvest the gifts and wisdom that this chrysalis experience has to offer.

As we consciously engage with this transition, letting go of our fear of aging and the loss of youth, we can liberate ourselves to more fully embody our maturity and own our true power.

So if you are curious about preparing yourself for the transition ahead, Or you are already experiencing peri-menopausal changes in your body, with or without your physical womb, Or have recently paused, and would like to consciously honour this transition,

Please join me, Carey Louisa, for this nourishing and supportive retreat

Biography

Freedom to Fly - Carey Louisa offers guidance towards Self  Empowerment, Inner Authority, Creative Expression and Awakened Authenticity.

Carey uses a richly diverse tool kit and her personal life experience as her resources, when co-creating a safe space for transformation, connection, healing and empowerment.

Carey’s offerings include : 

Private Sessions - these are crafted for couples and individuals who are interested in growing their own personal capacity for intimacy with self and/or others, or who may need support and guidance around opening more fully to expressing their own unique creative essence. Freedom to Fly private sessions can also offer deep healing and release from negative holding patterns around our bodies, sexuality and relationships. These sessions can include deep listening, breath work, movement meditation, body work, Alchemical massage, de-armouring and embodiment practices, and are approximately 2.5hrs long. Each session is individually crafted, specifically to meet the needs of the client.

Dance Journeys - these are opportunities to come together, to relax and release in movement, to deepen awareness of our bodies, and our connection to ourselves and each other.  The dance offers a space to cultivate and express vitality, creativity and embodied presence.

Celebrant - As a celebrant, Carey offers to co-create and hold your special ceremony with you.  She offers guidance and preparation, and a holding of the rite of passage, from seed to fruition, as well as reflection and harvesting, after the ceremony. Carey has co-created Coming of Age rituals, Commitment Ceremonies, Menarch Celebrations, Crone Ceremonies and other rites of passage that have called to be honoured and acknowledged.

About Carey, she is a creative mother of two teenage daughters. She dances, writes, makes art and lives with her children in a co-constructed cob house, near the ocean. Carey has been offering an evolving private practice as an Empowerment Guide, for the last 7 years. Prior to that Carey worked as a Waldorf primary school teacher and facilitator, at Blue Star Home School, and Michael Oak Waldorf School, as well as simultaneously offering her dance journeys, to cultivate and express vitality and embodied presence.
Carey is passionate about waking up and supporting the evolution of consciousness within herself and the world around her, by encouraging authenticity, creating connection, and cultivating vitality and its expression. She is committed to environmental health, social justice, gender reconciliation, dissolving the illusion of separation and creating healthy community.

ritual/sacred ceremony

“Carey co-created and co-facilitated the most wondrous ritual/sacred ceremony for Simon and I, as we stepped into a more formal commitment to each other - aka our wedding!  One of the things that I love most about Carey is HOW she holds space. It allows me to rest, to surrender, to trust, to open to what is needed. Undeniably present and attentive, nuanced and wise, she intuitively, carefully and playfully picks up on what needs to be spoken to, what needs to move through, what is in service, for all who are involved, individuals and the collective. Carey is a fellow journeyer and I trust her wholeheartedly to safely bring me to new edges.”

menopause

“When I first heard Carey share her perspective on menopause I was  delighted by how it opened up new and exciting possibilities for this  significant time of life change.   Working more with Carey this  inspiring vision became more solid. My experience of Carey’s work has  been one of being most gently, respectfully and wisely held and  accompanied. She created a space in which all of me felt welcomed and  found ways to be with me that held a depth and a creative openness that has been very healing and enriching for me. Carey’s connection to  nature, spirit, body, women and life make her a most precious guide and  her work a rich contribution to our world’s future possibilities.”

radiating

“Carey is a highly intuitive guide who gently but firmly brought me back to my true self through growing my self love, all the while skillfully challenging my limiting definitions of self and love. Using a unique combination of techniques including body de-armouring she cleared the blocks formed by traumatic life events which hold me back from experiencing the fullness and abundance of my true spiritual essence. Her ability to hold a professional space while facilitating my transformation with wisdom, integrity, intimacy and deep love is miraculous. I would encourage anyone to experience the safe, contained and nurturing space created by this extraordinary woman. After completing a 6 month process with Carey, I’m almost un-recognisable to myself and others. I’m both radiating and basking in the glow of universal love.”

Healing

"My work with Carey was hugely transformational and deeply rewarding. Over our time together, she demonstrated a profound ability to intuit what I needed on any number of levels and her sensitive use of a wide range of tools supported me in healing deep physical and emotional wounding. I sincerely wish that everyone could have the experience of working with a healer as wise, caring and powerful as Carey is. I cannot recommend her highly enough."

rite of passage ceremony

“Carey held a rite of passage ceremony for me in December 2016. The  purpose of the ceremony was to acknowledge, honour and ritualise parts of my life that I was letting go and to welcome a new Me. The ceremony  was held at St James Beach at about 4:30am in the morning, with Carey  plus five of my close friends. Carey  guided and supported me for several months before the ceremony. She was  instrumental, caring and inquisitive about what was needed to make this  work. Her love, support and courageous nature helped to create one of the most  profound experiences I have ever had in my life. She held a beautiful  sacred space of trust and gave 110% to every detail. I would highly recommend Carey for any rite of passage ceremony. Her integrity and passion for what she does is unfathomable.”
