Develop a unique set of tools that will allow you to have the confidence to build a powerful community and advance your spiritual development. This is a wild, creative, programme for ourselves and Mother Earth.

The Moving Mandala can be danced anywhere on the earth.

The intention of this retreat will be to embody your true heart and trust.

During this powerful programme, participants will be held within the safe and creative space of the 12 point Mandala.

The programme is held in a beautiful, sustainably built Earthspirit Centre near Glastonbury, considered by many as the heart chakra of the earth.

The Moving Mandala can often be the missing piece to your own practice. This is also one step towards becoming a Moving Mandala Facilitator. You will develop the confidence to use this incredible set of tools in your own daily life, as well as feel welcomed into a reliable community of like-minded souls.

“When we are discouraged or fragmented by what we hear of the outside world, we can get separated and feel isolated or lonely. When we come into the community we have many alignments”.

In sacred geometry, the 12 point star (sometimes called the Cosmic Gateway) is referred to as the infinite field of all Creation and is a very powerful tool for awakening and manifesting our creative life purpose. This is a superb opportunity to go within, connecting deeply to the earth, working with goddess archetypes, the chakras, and taking the time we need to listen to ourselves and Mother Earth.

This journey through the seven chakras helps our energy, processing fears efficiently.

Participants will receive 7 shamanic initiations corresponding to each of our 7 Chakras and related elements.


These shamanic initiations are offered through a selection of the following creative and therapeutic processes:
Shamanic journeys, drumming and song Altar work and sacred ceremony
Creative expression: dance, sacred drama, sounding and storytelling
Creative arts: painting, pastel, mask work and clay
Embodying archetypes

On the last day of the 8th Chakra ceremony, we will invite our community to witness as we dance in a 12 point Mandala star on the land with live drumming where possible. This will help us to connect to our sensuality, passion, joy, vitality, and fertility for the festival of the Autumn Equinox.
