Woman as Paradise Retreat
Thursday, Sept. 10th - Sunday, Sept. 13th, 2020
at the Goddess Temple of Ashland, Oregon
an offering of Her Mystery School with Deonesea La Fey
"Together, we will invoke and cultivate Woman as Paradise, raising up the miracle it is to be created Woman, oasis, garden of delight...following the impulse toward innocent pleasure, resurrecting a context around sexuality that is both reverent and wildly alive, courageously sanctifying the body as she is, and courting Shakti as a birthright responsibility." ~ Paradise, Her Mystery School
Our Woman as Paradise Retreat will offer you a space in which you can gather nectar, bathe in beauty and find a deeper relationship to your own personal sexual current as you immerse yourself in the garden of your internal landscape.
Held in a supportive and safe container of women, this gathering will support you to deepen into a refined and potent lived experience of the serpentine current that is at the heart of mystery teachings around feminine sexuality. You will be given the opportunity to drink deeply from many of the offerings we have honed here at the
Goddess Temple of Ashland, including:
Sovereign Sexuality Teachings
in the sacred spring (Mikvah)
This is an intimate ceremonial event for women who are called to the path of claiming and owning deep feminine sexuality. We will hold a sweet balance of group experiences and individual time spent luxuriating in the grounds of the Goddess Temple, so that you leave feeling refreshed and replenished and energized and closer to the truth of the sexual being you truly are.
Deonesea is an Ordained Priestess and the HMS Sensuality and Intimacy Mentor, who has been guiding women's circles for the better part of two decades. As an experienced ceremonialist, Deonesea brings a sense of power and clarity and safety to the ritual container she holds.
Her work as a sensuality coach and movement facilitator is based in deep training and involvement in sensuality and embodiment practices, ecstatic dance forms, and initiatory rites.

If you are coming from afar and are not able to bring all of your own camping gear, you can check out this website to rent camping gear that would be delivered to you at the Temple and then picked up when you're done: https://www.outdoorsgeek.com/rent-it/
NOTE: The weather in Ashland at that time of year can be warm in the day and quite cold at night, so warm sleeping gear is needed.
More luxurious accommodations can be arranged at the lovely resort next door, which would put you within a five minute walk of the Temple Grounds. www.lithiaspringsresort.com
