Sisterhood of the Rose Sacred Retreat
Isle of Avalon, Glastonbury
Nourish your wild Sacred Feminine
Do you feel the call of Glastonbury and the Sacred Isle of Avalon, the heart centre of the Earth?
Do you feel there is a call deep within to reconnect and embody more of your beautiful Divine Feminine power and wisdom?
This Retreat offers a small group of women a beautiful healing space to deepen into your true sacred feminine and wild free nature. Feel nourished and empowered to express yourself freely and confidently, as you open to the new You that is waiting to be birthed.
You will be safely and lovingly held and guided on a journey into the magical landscape of the Isle of Avalon supporting our journey inwards to nourish and reclaim our sacred Feminine potency and creative power. Through the portal of our heart and womb connection we will gently let go of those things that have kept us stuck in old patterns and versions of ourselves, ready to allow a new version of ourselves to emerge and be rooted into our being.
Our womb connects us to the womb of the Earth and the womb of creation. When blocked, it stems the flow of goodness and abundance in our lives. When reactivated, we feel the rise of our potent life force awakening our passion and calling, leading us to feel full of energy, vitality and confidence to be the creators of our own lives.
The weekend will offer a safe space to nurture and be nourished as women, to discover our true authentic nature, to let go of the past as we create space for the new you to arise and blossom in your magnificence.
Dates: Friday 2nd, Sat 3rdand Sun 4 July 2021
Venue: Healing Waters Sanctuary
What does the weekend entail?
Two nourishing nights at the Healing Waters Sanctuary located on the St Michael leyline, a 15/20 min slow walk to Chalice Wells and the White Spring. It is known for its peaceful sanctuary and amazing organic food, nourishing you on the inside out. It overlooks the Somerset plains with views towards the Tor.
Our focus will be a beautiful balance between activations and Divine Feminine Initiations on the sacred land and time resting in sacred circle back at Healing Waters Sanctuary.
We will be moving at a gentle pace, giving space for rest, contemplation as well as healing meditation and feminine embodiment practices during sacred circle time.
The highlight of our visit will be The White Spring and the Chalice Wells Gardens. We plan to have private access at the White Spring for an hour where we will carry out our sacred water ceremony with the Goddess Brigid, a powerful Initiation allowing you to gently let go, surrender and as you are cleansed and renewed.
The White Spring is a deep candlelit cave like womb space, which has been dedicated to the Goddess and Gods as a sacred space for pilgrims in search of a deeper connection to the Divine and their spiritual selves.
The White Spring is a natural spring that rises up from deep within the Earth and flows in to a central pool. There is also an icy plunge pool at the back that you are invited to plunge as part of your initiation, if you wish. Many of the women I have taken before feel to go naked into the waters, and this is of course your personal choice. We come to this sacred space as an offering to the Goddess of the Sacred Waters of Life, who supports us in letting go and birthing anew.
We foster a loving sisterhood during our weekend together so that the bond in love supports us through our transformational journey.
We will also spend a beautiful time walking and communing with nature in the sacred gardens of Chalice Well with its healing iron rich waters, ancient Yew trees, contemplating in meditation within King Arthurs Courtyard and Healing pool and resting in meditation by the Well Head.
This is the Holy Well of the Chalice Gardens where we open our hearts to receive the beauty of the peace and stillness that dwells here. It is here we will rebalance our energies and enter a deeper peace and acceptance within ourselves.
Sacred Healing Circle
The sacred circle time at Healing Waters Sanctuary will give space to share and support and allow you to dive deeper into your heart/womb connection, gently guiding you with guided meditations, breath work, simple rituals and shamanic drum journeys to release and awaken your passionate life force and to integrate what we have done on the sacred land.
We will journey together into the mystical realms of Avalon, safely held and loved by Lady of Avalon and Merlin together with the Lady Masters of the Rose Lineage – Mary Magdalene, Mother Mary and Lady Queen Isis who come to support our healing and reawaken lost gifts of the Divine Feminine. Jeshua, Mary Magdalene’s Beloved will also be present, bringing love, balance and unity within.
We invite you to bring all of yourself ready to bring yourself home to your true self.
We welcome all – your fears, your tears, your laughter and your wild and playful self, as we gracefully let go and embrace the new within us.
Who is this for?
- Do you feel the call of Glastonbury and Avalon, the heart centre of the Earth?
- Do you feel there is a call deep within to reconnect and embody more of your divine feminine power?
- Perhaps you feel stuck or blocked in areas of your feminine expression and your power to create and be creative, to receive pleasure and joy.
- You would love to feel a greater sense of self worth and self esteem so that you feel confident to be your authentic self and express who you truly are out in the world.
Many of us have had past lives as Priestesses of Avalon and we feel a call to reconnect with the land and the energies of the heart chakra here. During the activations and initations, I will be helping you unlock the gifts within you that are ready to be awoken. We are going through incredibly powerful times of transformation and as these new gifts awaken we will align with our true source of power and purpose.
Often as women we have learnt to shut off from our deeper needs and desires to feel nourished and loved, putting others’ needs before our own.
Our womb chalice holds our creative potential and sense of self-worth. It is our pot of gold. For many women this part of our selves has become suppressed due to our upbringing, how society and the media has viewed and judged our bodies and the quality of our most intimate relationships, as all is held in the cellular memory. When this is blocked, our creativity and how we express ourselves is affected. Feeling free is liberating and gives rise to greater levels of vitality, confidence and trust in our inner knowing to create healthy boundaries in our relationships.
This weekend healing Retreat helps:
- Nourish and empower you on a deep level
- Clear any blocked energy or trauma that’s ready to be released allowing your creative power and sensuality to flow freely
- support you in developing a deep connection with your womb wisdom and power therefore enhancing your intuition and self-worth
- Trust in your inner knowing and develop greater levels of self-love and acceptance
- Free physical tension and stress held in the body and within the hips and pelvic area
- Feminine embodiment practices to support your connection to your authentic self, practices that you can continue when at home.
The benefits of this healing Retreat will continue for the many weeks after the Weekend as you integrate the energetic changes that have taken place bringing more of yourself into wholeness. Self-care is most important during this period and a continuing practice of the exercises given.

As with any healing and energy work we all experience it in our own unique way and a deeply healing weekend can take sometime to process and integrate. It is natural for emotions to surface and for the physical body to feel the effects of the shifts. This is a natural and a welcome process as we know things are changing organically.
I have therefore found it beneficial for women to be supported in the weeks that follow a Retreat with a more personal 1:1 approach. So I would like to offer you the option to book a 1:1 Healing/Spiritual Coaching session (whether over the telephone, online or face to face) at a discounted price. Please contact me to arrange.
Beautiful women, honest, raw and open. Sonraya is so gracious providing a safe and supportive space. Magnificent energy. Feeling open, alive and willing to receive. Highly recommend!
“Thank you so much for holding the space for me to connect more fully in to my Divine Feminine and Masculine. The celebrations and ceremonies have been most profound and will definitely have far reaching effects. This healing retreat has opened up another pathway of self healing, connecting and empowering me”
“The weekend retreat in Glastonbury was so wonderful, I felt that really was the final stage of birthing the cycle of work we have done, integrating the goddess. The material for each spiral was so powerful and a resource that I have also found myself coming back to again this year. There have been some huge changes, manifestations and inner growth for me in the last year and I feel this is just more of the foundations, the learning never stops. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, and gently holding the space for this development."
" I’m looking forward to next week, it was so needed and was such a wonderful meditation. I felt such deep healing and love. Thank you Sonraya"
