Retreat in Spain
~for Women without Children~
April 23-27, 2024
Granja San Miguel
Gathering with ease, Women without Children,
experiencing the power of resting.
Mother of Pearls is a mother of life, she is a mother of beauty & power. A Woman that nourishes, feeds & changes the world. She is the Mother of many pearls - but she is unable or unwilling to have children.
Women without children are Pearl Mothers. We possess all the characteristics and strength of the Mother, but we do not create children. Our “children” – our pearls – appear in the form of our works of art, our labours of love, and everything we nourish and bring to life.
We Pearl Mothers offer the world our rainbows and our magic. We nourish, give life, and create — just not in the form of a baby.
Pearl Mother Retreat is a retreat of Self love for Women without Children, where we explore our bodies as a temple. We listen to the Sacred sound life has to offer. We embrace ourselves with gentle care & practice communicating with Mother Earth in Ceremony.
We will move gently in Restorative Yoga, breathe with ease & heal in relaxation & peace.
We will learn how to connect with Mother Earth in a more Sacred manner through Ceremonies dedicated to Her elements & the Divine Feminine.
We will meet in a quiet & loving space. Women without Children, in a Sister Circle. Pearl Mothers focusing on healing our wounds & gathering strength. We will dwell in our hearts, in Sacred Sisterhood, with trust & respect as a main focus.
Mother Earth is Sacred. The Universe is Sacred.
We are born into this Sacred world in a body that is Sacred.
Infertility & our Child-free lifestyle is our Superpower
- & together we will gather strength in love and ease.
If you are willing to dedicate to yourself & your Sacred path,
& learn ways to communicate with Mother Earth
& your Inner Goddess with more honour & respect, this is something for you.
The Retreat includes:
Mother Earth Ceremonies ~ through Ceremonies we communicate with Mother Earth, Her elements & our bodies in a Sacred way. Ceremony is being awake & aware, moving gently & with ease, & loving every breath we take in life. We give offerings and thanks to Mother Earth, & dedicate in gratitude for being given this body temple to enjoy living on this magical earth. We touch Mother Earth in deep gratitude, create altars in dedication to Her, tread lightly in nature walks - listen & sense Mother Earth & Her elements, & sense that Her flow is connected to our own flow in body & life.
Yoga ~ through Yoga & Relaxation we offer our body the most Sacred gift. The gift of love and respect. We learn to listen to our Inner Goddess by being conscious of the Sacredness of being alive, and the most miraculous gift of all, being able to breathe. We move gently in Restorative Yoga where the main focus is on Meditation in Motion, breath-work and relaxation.
Sound Healing ~ if the Goddess could sing you Her most Sacred song, She would heal & love you with every breath. Music & sound offers us healing & blesses us with ease. Music opens the doors to the Sacred World of Goddess and Her Sacred beings. Soft drumming & singing opens a door into another world, & offers deep relaxation & peace.
We offer ourselves the gift of taking a break, stepping out of our everyday routine, & gather in a loving circle of Pearl Mothers - Women without Children. Embracing ourselves in love & step closer to peace and contentment.
The main theme for this Retreat is Sisterhood - in calm & ease.
Uni is Infertile but has taken on the title Pearl Mother, seeking to change the way the world sees Infertility.
Uni encourages Infertile Women to take on the title Pearl Mother with pride, & prove to the World that Women without Children have an important role on Mother Earth.
“Through this painful experience of trying to have a baby - seeking this dream that did not come true - I have gathered many methods, practises & things that helped me overcome this deep sorrow. I am still healing this wound in my life - I realise that for an Infertile Woman this deep sorrow will always be a part of me. This scar on my soul will always be there - it has stopped bleeding for me - I have done my best to heal it & take good care of it - but this scar is a big part of me now. It makes me the Woman I am today.”
Uni Arndísar, an Icelandic Völva, Yoga teacher & Musician,
offers this gentle retreat, celebrating your body and Mother Earth
through Yoga, Sound-healing & Goddess Ceremonies.
