April 3-8-2024: Live Retreat in the South of France

Womb Awakening and Womb Healing

In this foundational retreat, we embark on an experiential journey to awaken and heal our sacred womb space. Our womb is a power place, much more than a physiological organ that bleeds and births children. Many ancient traditions all over the world speak of the womb in symbolic terms. Think of the holy grail and the lotus flower. But for thousands of years the womb has been forgotten as the seat of our soul, the root of our creativity, vitality and spirituality. Read more about the importance of the womb space here.

In this retreat, we will rekindle the connection to our deep belly. We will re-align the womb with all of the energy centers so that we can unlock the keys to the trinity of our real feminine power: an intuitive mind, a compassionate heart, and a creative womb. With powerful tools and practices based on ancient traditions and modern insights, we release our feminine wounds and reclaim our original feminine blueprint that has long been distorted on our planet. This retreat will lay the basis to change your relationship to self and others, to reconnect to the divine and the web of life, and create the life that you want.

The Cathar region in the South of France is stunning: wild nature, ancient thermal baths, lots of history and herstory, legends and myths, castles, churches, beautiful people, nice food…

Villa Sainte Marie, where you will be lodged, is an exceptional and healing place that used to belong to the nuns of Cluny and afterwards to a pioneer in permaculture. We sleep in the main house behind cute blue shutters, or in wooden houses and glamping tents between the fruit trees on the land. We do the process work in the beautiful temple tent under the protection of a female taxus tree.

“Mieke makes working with the pain body almost a pleasure, very clear guidance and very rewarding at the end of the tunnel. She is a woman/shaman of great medicine and I would recommend her highly to every woman I care about, to let herself be carried and healed by the space. Mieke is able to (co-) create. 4 weeks after the retreat I still feel blessed by the experience we all created together and I’m very thankful that I finally learned how to self-love en feel worthy of stepping into my greatest potential. And I will need to keep fueling that, still healing to be done, and that’s ok, gives me a great and happy reason to come back for more! 🙂

“How glad I am that I gifted myself this wonderful pilgrimage. Mary Magdalene called…I followed her invitation. The journey has opened something healing, powerful in me, kissed awake something that is difficult for me to put into words. A deeper homecoming to my womb and soul. Several moments where I was deeply touched and moved, in which I was allowed to experience the immense power of love that lurks in my womb. It felt so safe, so powerful, so coming home, so connected to a universal force. We had wonderful days. In an enriching mix of teachings and practices, visits and rituals at the power places, relax and enjoy the environment, nature, being together with a blissful, powerful group of women connected in the sacred energy of Mary Magdalene. Thank you, powerful sister, for sharing and living your integrated wisdom. Your loving, warm softness, inner strength and feeling and authentic, humble Being.”

With deep gratitude, I look back on an immersion in Mary Magdalene energy in the Cathar region. Under the guidance of the wise, beautiful, powerful Mieke. With in the most fitting way also support from her partner Olivier. An initiation into the Mysteries, into a bath of sisterhood… and a deep anchoring in the divine feminine as well as masculine. I have rarely experienced such energetically charged places as on this journey.

Hi there, I am Mieke Anthuenis (1972). I am a shamanic womb priestess, healer, and menstrual mentor, devoted to the sacred feminine, the way of the soul and birthing the new earth. Since 2005, I walk a mystic and shamanic healing path with strong influence from my time in Peru and Colombia and the teachers I met there, both in human, plant and spirit form. With a background in shiatsu and tuina, I seek to bring in the rich and old eastern view on womxn’s well-being. In 2017, I founded (former) Moving Inside, dedicated to feminine spirituality and holistic-natural sources for women’s health and empowerment, such as womb steaming, ritual bathing and herbal sweat lodge. Those are still the red thread in my current work. In 2020 I started Red Tara Tree to reclaim the sacredness of the red path of women: the mysteries of menstruation, se*x*uality, menopause, birth and death. Since 2023, I organize spiritual pilgrimages in the South of France. Some of my trainings are: wisdom keeper of the womb, moon mother, vaginal steam therapist, tuina therapist, shamanic counselor, conscious dance facilitator, sweat lodge facilitator… In the field of the feminine, I studied with: Seren & Azra Bertrand, Miranda Gray, Leyolah Antara, Diana Beaulieu, Keli Garza, Leontine Hartzell oa…

I am truly honored to connect with you. xxx
