ILLUMINATRIX

UNLEASH YOUR UNTAPPED POWER

FOR THE WOMAN WHO

HUNGERS TO BE ANIMATED

BY ALIVENESS 

DRINKS SUN

RISES LIKE WATER 

DESIRES UNFALTERING

BODY TRUST

VALUES HONEST

& UNIQUE SELF- EXPRESSION

TOUCHES MAGICK IN THE

SIMPLEST THINGS

WANTS TO DEEPEN

INTO HERSELF

DESIRES TO IGNITE

HER FERAL FLAME

THE HEART OF THE ILLUMINATRIX:

“PEOPLE WILL DO ANYTHING, NO MATTER HOW ABSURD, IN ORDER TO AVOID FACING THEIR OWN SOULS.

 

(YET) ONE DOES NOT BECOME ENLIGHTENED BY IMAGINING FIGURES OF LIGHT, BUT BY MAKING THE DARKNESS CONSCIOUS."

 

-C.G. JUNG

THE ILLUMINATRIX



Carl Jung’s words perfectly distill the 🖤 of the Illuminatrix ::  One who is willing to see the power of all her parts & integrate them - body & mind.


The Illuminatrix is not fearful of her depths.
She has the tools to dive into deep waters.
She trusts her process.
And because of this

The Illuminatrix has the ability to alchemize the dense lead life leaves at her feet into the pliable gold she adorns herSelf with.



The
ILLUMINATRIX RETREAT will

Help us to see all our parts -
to shed light on them.

 

To illuminate them
in order to understand them
To accept them &

To learn to integrate them into our person
for the evolution of
the soul...

So that in understanding & accepting the darkness we may learn to alchemize it into usable, healthy material.



At the Illuminatrix retreat, we will do just this:

CHOOSE to lovingly & responsibly shed light on all the parts of ourselves & in doing so, learn to understand & integrate them.

You will be equipped with powerful practices, tools & modalities  -

yoga, dance, guided visualization, self-pleasure, embodied eating, sensuality - and self-study tools - human design & erotic integration basics 


- that teach you how to make the darkness conscious, then lovingly come to understand how to work with it in an empowering way, that suits your process.

MEET YOUR GUIDES

Meet Rivka - 

She will guide us in the art of liberated movement. Movement of the body, yes, but also of the breath, mind, energy & soul.  For 10 years Rivka has been an active student & teacher of yoga.  She has been hosting retreats world-wide since 2017. Rivka's iridescent spirit of freedom & reverent body connection color the yoga flows she will lead you through.  Get ready to deepen into your practice with her intuitive, rhythmic & invitational teaching style. With her instruction you'll feel the kind of body connection & freedom most only dream of. 

Rivka is famous for closing rich retreat days with delicious Yoga Nidras infused with the kind of calm healing energy only a Reiki practitioner could administer, which makes sense since she is a C
ertified Level 2 Reiki Practitioner.  Rivka will guide us through the kind of ecstatic body-breath-movement connection that will have you wondering if you just met God(dess). Rivka is a photographer who is ready to share her photo genius & help you get comfy in front of the camera. A lover of climbing trees, singing, dancing & crafting, Rivka brings a rainbow spirit of playfulness to her otherwise body-reverent teaching!

Meet Alyssa - 

She will guide us back to our magick through intimate connection &integration with all parts of yourself. Over the last 8 years Alyssa has worked 1:1 with hundreds of humans world-wide. She respects both the technical & intuitive; the humanness & spiritual. 

Durning the retreat she will help you slough off the layers of not-self conditioning that keep you stuck inhaling the fragrance of your Truest Self, but never really tasting Her in all of Her majesty. Have trouble trusting yourself? You won't after the immediately applicable Human Design workshopping which will equip you with your Strategy, Authority & Auric mechanics. 

Alyssa is known for setting a mood. Come with an open heart, a curious mind & ready to be guided into connection with the innocent, yet arousing regenerative power of your connection to the Erotic. Together we'll drop into dark room dance that will have you body high & hypnotized regardless of your past dance experience.

 

You will be guided through what Alyssa lovingly calls, "Exposure Therapy" aka embodied photography. You'll leave feeling more alive, empowered & confident than ever as we burn down the cultural myths that create shame, guilt, embarrassment & fear for being in communion with our animal bodies & heavenly spirits.

Some experiences - the ones in which we touch magick - change our life forever. This 7-day experience will connect you with your unique essence, your inner authority &

your body's innate wisdom.

We'll dance with the both the physical & intangible;
helping you remember how to consciously hone & hold the frequency you want to attract.

The Illumintarix knows that her power lives in the integration of all her parts - ugly & beautiful, dark & light. She meets herself & others with curious compassion, a soft-hearted & strong spine.

In doing so, she - you - unleash your untapped power.
