Tuscany, Italy
15 - 21 July, 2018



Through out history women came together in sacred space, some refereed to it as The Red Tent. This was a place to heal, educated, intuit information beneficial to the collective and nurture themselves in all manner of ways and rituals, for it was recognised as a fundamental necessity for womens wellbeing, and therefore, the health of the whole community.

Our very survival is dependant on woman cause it is through the womb of women that we come into existence. It is primarily at the hands of women that are children are raised and trained how to live. It makes sense that nurturing a woman’s mental, emotional, physical and sexual health is of great importance to us all.

What are we doing

 Initiation rituals are Sacred Rites of Passage fundamental to the wellbeing of a woman. by using the healing power of our sexual energy, this ancient ritual dissolves the negativity generated through conditioning, belief systems, traumas and destructive patterns. It creates an opening for the woman to birth  her self anew,  and the reclaim her authentic feminine identity. 
Alike the atmosphere that surrounds deaths and births, sensory awareness is heighten and a profound presence is felt. Participants complete this process feeling renewed, stripped of fears and limitations and brought to a refreshed outlook on life and a restored faith in the feminine creative spirit. read more 


Why are we doing it

Women, by nature, have an endless capacity for love, bliss and manifestation. Sadly her inherent potential has been neglected and we have forgotten the ways of the woman. 
Most women feel a lack of satisfaction in their lives, especially sexually. This is because most of us have been raised to be ‘good girls’ and in our efforts to be loved and accepted, we have adopted destructive habits to be all things to all people, in all ways. This contributes to the many difficulties we have, especially in feeling sublime subtleties and orgasmic bliss and has driven a lot of women into devastating health issues, physically and emotionally/mentally.
