An Elemental Journey back Home
We are offering you an unforgettable journey to your wildest dreams; to the woman that lives within you when nobody is watching; to the dancer; to the singer; to the erotic being; to the intuitive woman that sees herself and others in a fountain of abundance.
Yes… all of that, which you know deep within is at the reach of your hand once you look behind the curtain that is blinding you. We invite you to join us on this passionate journey through a series of five weekends followed by a ten-day retreat at the end.
We will support you to open those rusty doors and dust those precious objects within you; to jump into your fullness of being and laugh like you have never laughed before.
On this journey we will travel with the four archetypes that are based on the elements within and without you: Earth, Fire, Water, Air.
Earth / Mother Archetype: Discriminating the pure archetype from the distorted, inherited archetype. The ‘Core Wound’ that obstructs and sabotages our potential. Understanding and caring for the Core Wound. The Practice of ‘Self Caring’. Nurturing, and holding all that has not been seen and loved within us. The emergence of the caring adult in our psyche.
Fire / Warrior Archetype: Discriminating her from distorted power. Moving towards our personal and collective meeting of the empowered feminine. Learning to make friends with our fire (anger, rage), as a pathway into our divine potency. Learning to place boundaries with heart. Taking our space, expanding and speaking our heart’s truth beyond blame of self/other, beyond persecutor, victim and absence. No apology.
Water/ Lover Archetype: Discriminating the love needs of the child from the longing for communion of the lover. Learning and reclaiming our capacity for receptivity as our doorway to feeling our energy body, taking us into deep intimacy, erotic presence and communion... all Feminine gifts. Cleansing our toxic cellular sexual memory. Reclaiming our leadership of the heart. Being the queen of the boudoir, within and without.
Air / Shamana Archetype: Reclaiming the moon within, returning to the power of our blood and learning to read our cyclical nature as a way into divine feminine spirituality. Our capacity to live in the unknown, our simple and ordinary women’s way of connection with Source and feeling the cosmos within. Conducting energy. Resting in being as choice. Developing a choice of practices that keeps us re-choosing a native consciousness attuned with the natural world. Receiving and giving guidance through our intimacy with birth/death cycles.
Final Retreat: A time to bring all this together and to learn how to live and share it in your day to day life. Participation info: As mentioned above the programme includes 5 long weekends and one final 10-day retreat at the end.
Dates and location:
The programme will start sometime in the spring (2021) and it will last just over a year (ending in late spring 2022). It take place in Athens, Greece. The details regarding dates, exact location and cost will be announced soon. Meanwhile you can register your interest by contacting Daphne: firstname.lastname@example.org
About the facilitators:
Elisabeth Serra (Main Facilitator) was born and grew up in Barcelona, Spain. As a young woman she spent ten years in India, immersing herself initially in the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, and then following her own path of self-discovery, encountering a variety of forms and paths that continue to support her in her own homecoming. She held a private psychotherapeutic practice in England for two decades, during which time she also graduated with an M.A. in Psychosynthesis psychotherapy. Alongside her former partner, Mark Josephs, she co-founded a movement called Social Alchemy and, for another two decades, offered diverse programmes in Europe and the USA to help awaken our remembrance of our essential nature and innate knowing, while learning how to manage all that diverts us from that remembering – so that we can thrive in intimacy with others, and with our surroundings. She is a practitioner and teacher of an ancient women’s tantric dance-meditation called ´Shiva Shakti´, designed to awaken and embody the different faces of the feminine, and return us to our ecstatic, essential nature. Her love for dance, music and theatre has not only inspired her throughout her personal development but has become the breathing ground of all the different aspects of her ‘work’, her offerings… For more information about Elisabeth's offerings and other resources visit her website https://feminineecstasy.com/
Daphne Kourkounaki (program organiser, assistant facilitator, program translator) was born and grew up in Crete, Greece. At 18 years old she moved to England where she obtained a Masters' degree in Electrical Engineering followed by a postgraduate Masters' in Environmental and Energy Studies. Initially she worked as an engineer and later as a sustainability consultant. Soon she concluded that we can't be talking about creating a sustainable future for humanity if we are not engaging in the awakening of the Soul. She dedicated the next ten years of her life to her own soul awakening. Along the way she worked with Elisabeth Serra who facilitated her journey of deep Self discovery and the reclaiming and sharing of her authentic feminine essence. She works as a Life Coach, Astrologer and she practices and teaches the ancient Tantric dance-meditation called Shiva Shakti. Her passion is to support men and women in the discovery and following of their deepest truth and in the development and application of their innate creativity.
