*WOMEN’S CIRCLES – into the womb
A long time ago woman lived synchronized with the moon. When it was new moon and menstruation time, the woman stopped their daily activities and withdrew in the ‘red tent’ to release what they didn’t need anymore, to reflect, to share rituals & wisdom. A lot of the wisdom about the cycles of sun, moon & seasons was felt and gathered by woman.
This Woman Retreat is like a red tent. A time to connect with your Sisters and heal. A time to pause, to relax, to release, to share warmth & wisdom. We inspire each other, we share, we dance, we laugh, we relax, we nurture our true essence, reclaim our Shakti/female power, we shine, we are as we are – beautiful! You will come out of this retreat as a newborn, shining bright with renewed energy & a positive body image, ready to live your full potential!
* TAOIST TANTRIC PRACTICES
Paya: “As I have learned at the source with master Mantak Chia (Taoist Master), it is one of the most important things as a woman to train her pelvic floor muscles, to have more sensations & less menstrual issues. The practices with a yoni egg (with clothes on) will increase your sexuality & sexual experiences and the health of your vagina, uterus & ovaries. I will teach you how to increase & move sexual energy through your whole body, so it can bring you more energy, happiness and joy!”
* CONNECTING WITH NATURE IS CONNECTING WITH YOURSELF
See the beauty of simplicity. Feel how much beauty nature has to offer. Nature is imperfectly perfect – aren’t we the same? We will connect with the water and waves of the sea, as we connect with our bodies. We will connect with the regenerative power of the moon, as we connect with our wombs.
* ELEMENTAL AWAKENING – What can each element teach you about yourself?
Every day of the retreat we will connect with one element and her related chakra and body parts.
The AIR will open your lungs and heart
The EARTH will nourish you with a healthy body image
The FIRE will help you to set boundaries & to express your voice
The WATER will help you to flow in your sensual body
The ETHER will remind you that you are a Goddess
*WILD WOMAN & GODDESS AWAKENING – Archetypal work
In your daily life, you embody as a woman different archetypes: one second you are a ‘mother’ caring for others, the other second a seductress. But how often do you connect with archetypes like the priestess or the wild woman? During the retreat we will embody different female archetypes to recall and reclaim forgotten aspects of ourselves.

LENE VAN STEENWINKEL is a 5Elements Dance Activation™ Facilitator, social worker and dance therapist that helps women to find love for their body by connecting with their body, the elements and the cycles of nature. In the rituals she facilitate, women wake up the memory of the ancient dancing priestesses and re-experience the regenerative power that is inherent to womanhood. Lene’s transformative workshops include her personal experiences of dance and passage rituals of several native cultures. Her therapeutic dance journeys are a unique mix of techniques of the east (Tantra, Vipassana, Butoh, Sufi Dance) and the west (Authentic Movement, Archetypal Psychology, Bio-Energetica, Contemporary Dance, Contact Dance, Dance Expression) with shamanism. Lene believes that dance has not only the power to transform individuals, but to transform a community or society as a whole.
