10am-12pm: Observing and Dropping into the Womb. Followed by Embodiment Yoga
During this day we will reconnect with the womb by dropping in with a guided meditation to clear the accumulated energies of past trauma, shame, violation, stagnation or disconnect from the womb. We will become PRESENT in this sacred space.
Next we will practice some yoga designed specifically to help move the energies around the pelvis, uterus, ovaries the psoas muscle, and entire lower abdomen.
3-6pm: Womb Ritual and Painting The Womb
We will choose one womb ritual and move into painting our experience. Visions, sounds, smells, or colors, and shapes that emerge will become a work of art.
10am- 12pm: Purifying and Sanctifying the Womb and Breath Work
We will be doing womb cleansing today. We will use breath work, along with titration and pendulation, a form of somatic observation of the way our womb feels.
3-6pm: Womb Ritual and Painting Womb Energy
We will perform a womb ritual and with that energy, move into painting. It is best we begin a new artwork today depicting all that we have experienced throughout our breath work and embodied work.
10am-12pm: Connecting and setting up Sacred Space FOREVER in the Womb followed by Vipassana meditation. .
On this final day we will turn all of our attention to the energy in our womb and connect with it. We will begin with Vipassana meditation by just observing our breath, and whatever is coming up for us without attaching to it and completely embracing the moment as it is. Next we will drop into the womb with this practice and stay there. We will try and connect with our power, the place that restores our sacred feminine. Restoring healthy pelvic boundaries. This is an embodied energy that requires our attention to access it.
3-6pm: Womb Ritual and Creating a Womb Mandala
We will begin with a womb ritual and move into painting the ESSENCE of our womb. If our womb had a higher self, what would this higher self of our womb look like?
I was born in Beirut, Lebanon and raised between Lebanon, Cyprus, New York and the Far East. I came to the United States of America with a Masters degree in Archaeology from the American University of Beirut. The research I conducted was intensive, time consuming, and very specialized, and had culminated in a historical background, typology, reconstructions, sketches, and description of over one hundred pottery shards found in a cave in North Lebanon. While studying at the American University of Beirut was rewarding, these were years of turmoil, and devastation due to the civil war in Lebanon. I witnessed the College Hall’s destruction by a bomb implant, the American University Hospital bombings, which left many injured and scarred for life, and the so called ‘Harb Aoun’ in 1991, which had us taking flights from Beirut airport to an airport on the outskirts of Tripoli that had not been used until that year. During that same year of immigrating to the United States, I was accepted at McGill University in Montreal as a Ph.D candidate in the Islamic Studies program. The title I had chosen at that time was Why women Sufi’s are under represented in the literature? But it was difficult…
