The Goddesses Retreat – Mallorca

I just came back from this incredible and transformational retreat in the beautiful Mallorca/Spain.

I`ve to many retreats in my life, yoga retreats, silent retreats, panchakarma retreats….but nothing life this before!

Connecting with women in general and with my own feminine has been a challenge of mine since my childhood, I was raised to be strong and independent and the feminine sensitive traits were seen as weakness, and I wasn`t very comfortable at exploring them.

In this retreat, I was invited to look back and see the little young me before puberty, in the moment when all these concepts of “how a strong woman should look like” were formed. I was invited to question my own beliefs and to go deep, very deep into my emotions.

Up to this point I thought that I had my shit together, but I was wrong! There was still so much space for growth and so many wounds to be healed, I`ve told myself so many stories for my own protection, that I had to let go.

Sorry for being so vague but If you are curious, I think you should definitely go and check out their brilliant work, Deena and Jamie at www.werise.earth

It wasn`t only deep emotional work, we also danced, laugh, sang, went for hikes in nature and swam in the sea, it was great fun!

We learnt how to connect to our womb and to the cycles of the moon, as well as how precious our menstrual blood is and why we should honour it instead of shaming it, it was a very valuable lesson I`ll take for life.

We women should understand how our bodies work, and celebrate our change of moods! We go into seasons like nature, and there are optimal times for everything we want to do, we just need to tune in and listen to our bodies.

Felling connected to a loving sisterhood community and being able to be vulnerable in a safe space was priceless. It was really an incredible experience!

This retreat reminded me that we women are on the rise.

We are wise, worthy, wild and we just need to remember that. It is time to claim back our power and shine our light through our own unique essence and gifts; re-writing our story in our own terms, for us, and for the next generations to come.

When we are stuck in our heads, stressing about the next fad diet, comparing ourselves to other, hating our bodies, we are also wasting. precious. energy.

And you`re so much more than that! We are so much more than that!

I have created a online sisters circle where I intend to bring this experience for women who doesn`t have access to a supportive space in their community, if you feel called join me at Wise Women Rise – Sisters Circle

I would love to see you there! x

I have a DREAM…

I have a dream, I want to make the world a better place!

Starting by encouraging a better food system.

I believe that sustainable food that comes from natural and organic sources, and the are the way to health and well-being. Good and healthy food should be accessible to everyone.
I believe that the way we can change it, is supporting our local farmers and voting with our eating choices, every  time. Demand and supply, you know?

 
The actual food system doesn’t only damage our health with so much chemicals, but it also kills the beautiful planet we live in. We all know how much the food industry pollutes the seas, the soil and the air we breathe. It`s crazy!
I believe that modern nutrition science should`t be only about counting calories or exclude entire food groups from our diets, but instead, it should have a more holistic approach, accepting that we are all different within our very individual needs.

I believe that if we can learn to respect nature, you can also learn to respect ourselves.

Being healthy there is nothing to do with starving yourself or eating tasteless foods. Being healthy means feeling great in your skin, being able to listen to your own natural body signs and have lots of energy throughout the day, every day.

I`m here in this world to serve and to help other people through food, just like I had to do for myself, check my Binge Eating Disorder – Personal Story You can also find the best way to heal your body, your mind, prevent diseases, protect the planet and live happy to achieve great things, in harmony with nature.

We are on this together!

I`m Emi Looker and I`m glad you are here.
