Woman's Circle - World Wide Womb Blessing - with Bjorg-Ida Hoyem

Woman's Circle - World Wide Womb Blessing - with Bjorg-Ida Hoyem

Five times a year thousands of women around the world come together to do something extraordinary -  to share love, light and healing, and to awaken the Sacred Feminine within themselves and within the world through a World Wide Womb Blessing.

A Womb Blessing is an energy process to restore authentic feminine energy. It's a return back to the original pattern of female energies, exploring female authenticity, creativity, and spirituality. 


Through adaptation to society we loose contact and disconnect with the 4 female archetypes whom all woman consist of, The Maiden, The Mother, The Enchantress and The Crone, and move away from their energies. A Womb Blessing awakens these dormant energetic archetypes and raises the vibration of the Divine Feminine. It teaches us who we are as authentic woman, changing our awareness and strengthening our connection to the feminine. It energizes the female womb centre, the life mother, and helps centre, balance and root us to mother Earth.

To take part in this beautiful offering, there are a few easy steps to follow beforehand and bring $5 to contribute to light refreshments afterwards:

Firstly check in here:

Name *
Name

THEN - It's vital that you:

1. Go to www.wombblessing.com to register for the World Wide Womb Blessing.
When you come to the Womb Blessing Time, tick 12.00pm UK time, which will be 8.00pm Sydney time. You need to do this before 8pm Saturday 25/08 before international registration closes.

2. Once you've registered, Your Registration Confirmation Page contains a link to download documents with instructions and meditations - www.wombblessing.com/wb.html.
Read through the information if you are new to the Womb Blessing, it will help you prepare to receive the healing energy of the Blessing.

3. What to bring on the night (along with your $5 for light refreshments):
- two small womb bowls (they can be any type of bowls or cups)
- a shawl or a scarf to place around your shoulders to create a sacred space and to bring your focus into your body

4. After the Womb Blessing
When you receive the Womb Blessing, a 28 day period of 'rebirth' takes place, where the energy continues to heal, energize and release old and unwanted patterns. These may be physical, emotional or spiritual. It has a detox effect that will last 2-3 days at most, and drinking lots of water with a dash of lemon juice will aid this process. Tiredness you may feel after is the integration of the changes in energy. Please be gentle with yourself, eat and drink healthily and do the Self-Healing Exercise every day for 5-10 minutes.

Surfs Up - Lotus Bay Yoga's August Flow - 11th, 18th and 25th August - Saturdays 7.45am with Amy Weidlich

A progression of three yoga classes charting the evolution of surfing, as we turn our yoga mats into surfboards, to celebrate the winter element of water by founding Yoga Teacher Amy Weidlich @amyariel @lotusbayyoga 

Yoga Week 1: From Hawaiian Tradition to Longboard Carving

First Up - From a Hawaiian Tradition to Longboard Carving - we explore the sport of Kings and Queens, when it was always, all about the joy. A very act of communing with nature and being in flow. We track the art of surfing from it's Hawaiian heritage to it's Australian shores when Isabel Letham was Australia's first surfer as she rode tandem with Duke Kahanamoku at Manly Beach. We track surfings adventure to long boards, big waves and the beginnings of a world competition and the promise of the Endless Summer. Our yoga will be a gentle flow, a playful exploration of our mats/boards and a connection with the natural rhythms of our body, through the ebb and flow of the breath.   

Maids on the Wave by Wallace Mackay, 1874 - Join Lotus Bay Yoga for a three part yoga series paying tribute to the history of surfing.

Yoga Week 2: Short Board Revolution - Fire and Athleticism 

Secondly - Short Board Revolution - From Tom Carrol to Kelly Slater, Shaun Thompson to Tom Curren, Mick Fanning WOW and trail blazer Layne Beachley. In this yoga practice we get a fire in our belly to be be the best we can be. We learn that it's not just about being the water, it's about attending to our craft, to keep paddling out. To train our whole bodies and when we lose our way - evolve that to training our minds and caring for our souls too as we fire up to keep on THE SEARCH. We fall off and then we paddle back out to push the outer limits of what's possible in this soulful sport. Our yoga will be dynamic, in avid flow, we'll twist and turn our manipura chakra and check if our ego is over or undercharged.

Yoga Week 3: Anything Goes - Paradigm Lost - Soul Surfers Rise

Finally - Anything Goes - as we return to soul surfing & big wave riding! Whole families of Surfers choose the boards of their choice. The new superstars are polymath riders like Kai Lenny who are good at everything and choose the board that suits the conditions and their pursuit of joy! Families take turns riding soft fun boards, getting out the back on the SUP and we see the re-prise of windsurfing. Tom Wegeners balsa slide boards take it right back to the start - honouring the original Hawaiian designs. It's now that the longboard revolution is well and truly returned - with it's own world tour; while short board riders are re-exploring shapes like the fish - playing with their fin set ups and charging like never before with an athleticism to be admired! For our yoga practice we notice how we can choose the modality or practice that suits our bodies and we learn from mixing it up on our yoga mats, as well as in the water!

Anything goes and soul surfing is where it's at, join @amyariel of Lotus Bay Yoga at Driftwood Living in the heart of Little Bay Village in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs for a three part surfing progression yoga practice.

This fun yoga practice is lead by Lotus Bay Yoga's founding teacher Amy Weidlich who can't believe it's been over 10 years since this book was first published!

While we are on the mat, we will be able to reflect on our own journeys of the soul.

Week 1 Eat: we'll discover the ability to pursue joy

This is a sweet expression. Bel far Niente means ‘the beauty of doing nothing’.
— Elizabeth Gilbert Eat Pray Love

Week 2 Pray: we'll uncover how discovering our true nature helps us pursue joy

They had a new position in mind for me at the Ashram. And the title of my new job was - if you will kindly dig this - ‘Key Hostess’
— Elizabeth Gilbert Eat Pray Love

Week 3 Love: we'll make peace with the world around us and open up to new possibilities

I say: ‘Attraversiamo’
Let’s cross over
— Elizabeth Gilbert EAT PRAY LOVE

 

The yoga will be a combination of gentle flows with some more contemplative holds, designed for all levels of yoga experience. The main thing is that this search on the mat will be nourishing and offer food for thought and gifts for the soul. 

Following practice, yogis will be delivered their choice of beverage from local cafe Piccola Baia who delivers their share of La Dolce Vita philosophy to Little Bay most days. Together we'll chat about our perspectives on Eat Pray Love, share travel stories and just sit in the sun together.

Here is a link to the free kindle sample of the 10th anniversary edition of Eat Pray Love - for those of you who want to read along.
