feminine mystic ireland


Explore the power of the feminine as revealed by modern-day and historical mystics at this powerful women-only, all-inclusive retreat May 3-5, 2109 at an organic farm near Devon, England.

Facilitators Sarah McLean, Suzi von Mensenkampff, Vera Lopez, and Sue Cooper will share inspirational stories, lead you into empowering ceremonies, hold community council practices, guide you into deep meditations, offer deep awakening exercises, and hold the space for you to wake up to the power of the feminine mystics.

During this retreat, you’ll join other women who also long to connect to the deepest part of themselves and journey deep into their interior. You’ll examine your life through the mirror of the lives of female mystics and reawaken to your personal feminine power. You’ll discover how you uniquely embody the power and wisdom of modern and ancient feminine mystics and archetypes.

Cultivate and celebrate your unique expression of feminine power, embrace what is truly yours while letting go of what doesn’t serve you, and identify what you are being called to do next, all in a supportive, safe and inspiring environment. Limited to 16 women.

When:  May 3 – 5, 

Check in Friday at noon, retreat ends on Sunday afternoon.

Where: At Middle Coombe Farm, Tiverton, Devon.  

The retreat is held at this eco-friendly farm on four hundred acres of farmland and woodland. Visit the website here.  We’ll gather in the 16th-century cider barn next to a walnut grove with big threshing doors that open to a view of the meadow to the woods. The ceiling’s oak beams and rafters give a great sense of space and the underfloor heating makes for cozy yoga and meditation.

Delicious vegetarian meals will be served in the farmhouse which combines the cosiness and informality of country life with the luxury of a large oak paneled drawing room. There’s also a secluded courtyard with a large open fireplace for outdoor dining.

What previous attendees share about this retreat:  

I now trust my inner knowing and truly believe in my power to achieve whatever my heart truly desires.  

I feel more positive about myself and have created a new set of daily affirmations to cultivate more self-love.

Now I know who I really am. I left almost floating with the recognition of it at a deep level. I had never before made the connection that I too have the qualities of the powerful women I know. For that alone THANK YOU.

I have let go of the unkind thoughts I had about myself and am being more kind to me!
