Phenomenal Woman : A Women’s Summer Solstice Gathering with Carly Mountain
Join Carly for a celebration of summer solstice and a gathering together of phenomenal women. That being you!
Using yoga, movement, voice, poetry and self-enquiry we will adventure into a day of intimate practice and exploration. You will be invited to dive into the realms of your inner landscape and unique expression with a courageous group of women who wish to do the same.
As women living in a patriarchal society there are still ideas and limitations that mean we often have to censor or adapt in ways that do not always serve us. To gather in a women’s circle that welcomes you, whatever you bring is such medicine.
During the gathering we will ask, what do I need to risk to allow my full expression? What is flowering within me at this time? What needs to be released or heard? All you need to bring is your curiosity and willingness to explore.
“It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
~ Maya Angelou
How to Book
Please note : Pre booking is essential for this workshop.
There is a £1.50 Paypal fee which we add on if you pay through our website, there is no fee for bank transfer.
What to wear/bring
- A blanket
- Clothes that are comfortable and easy to move in
- A closed lid drinking vessel
- A poem/song that is currently speaking to your life (please do not worry if you have not worked with poetry before. It could be a few lines from a song/book/something you wrote)
Most of the practices are inclusive for all, but we will begin the day with quite a physical yoga based practice. For those who are menstruating, injured or who have any another physical limitation, I will endeavour to offer modifications to the practice or you are welcome to simply behold and then join in with the rest of the day.
These practices are designed to rattle the cage of our habitual patterns and invite us into new explorations therefore if you are currently emotionally fragile or in crisis the workshop may not be suitable for you. Please contact Carly ahead of time if you are unsure.
Carly Mountain is a teacher and writer. She works with poetry, yoga, breathwork and voice as transformational practice that can liberate us in ways we never anticipated.
She is the creatrix of the Butterfly School which supports women’s in depth self-enquiry and unfolding. She lives in Sheffield with her husband and two daughters. For more about Carly you can visit her website.
For anyone interested in applying for Butterfly 2020, this gathering will hold a flavour of the Butterfly work and would be a good taster day. It will give you the opportunity to chat to women who are currently in the Butterfly School and get a feel for if it’s for you.
