Shamanic Sharing Circle

One of the key medicines of our Shamanic tradition of the Goddess Mother is sharing. With this Sharing Circle, we would like to offer a protected sacred space of wisdom and learning to come back to ourselves, to reconnect and to grow individually and collectively.

Sharing Circles are ancient healing spaces where we get witnessed and witness our and others' inner processes. It is a space of deep listening and of speaking own’s truth without fear. In this way we learn more about ourselves and Shamanism and about its vibrations with the truth of our souls.

In front of a sacred fire, guided by the Four Elements and the Goddess Mother, we invite you to an evening of sharing life and community.

Free contribution. Reservation needed.

Location to be confirmed.

Ritual: Purification Lodge

At the doors of the Autumn Equinox, this ritual of this purification lodge is devoted to our inner balance. We will dance between light and dark, feeling the extremes, to explore a point of inner stillness where our equilibrium can be touched and experienced.

What is needed to feel that inner balance? What does it mean to feel centred? We will guide you through a protected space where your inner center can be explored and balance can be restored.

The purification lodge is an ancient ritual used to heal the 4 bodies while returning to the womb of Mother Earth, of Pachamama. The ritual creates a space of care, learning and love to give space to ourselves and our expression.

This time, we have the special chance to built a new purification lodge in a new land. Crafting a refined lodge teaches us how to create jointly a space of harmony and balance where each part finds its space in the wholeness.

This ritual is:

  • for everyone who feels the call to purify, cleanse and revitalise the four bodies (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual).
  • for whom feels the call to connect deeper with Nature and the ancient medicine of the Purification Lodge.
  • For whom wishes to embrace themselves and feeling a balance in their lives.

What we offer:

  • Building the lodge
  • Mantras and shamanic songs
  • Preparation of the lodge
  • Sacred fire
  • Ritual of the purification lodge
  • Herbal bath
  • Shamanic sharing circle

Join us for this joyful celebration. No experience of shamanism is needed.

Saturday 18th: 2pm to 11pm Sunday 19th: 10am to 1pm

Contribution: 60 to 75 euros depending on your possibilities. The ritual is limited to 12 people.

This ritual will be in Italian and in English

Awakening Womb Wisdom

The womb is mainly considered when we, women, are about to become mothers, giving birth, and then… remembered perhaps on the days of the cycle or if we are experiences any sickness related to it.

Why, if in many traditions the womb is considered the most sacred center of women’s power and wisdom, does it tend to be forgotten and neglected?

With this seminar series we want to bring attention, awaken and connect with the wisdom of our womb. When a woman shifts her center of gravity to her womb, she becomes more centered, empowered, present and grounded. She can birth herself.

These workshops are for girls and women from 13 years up.

They are for girls and women who are simply curious, want to connect to their menstrual cycle, have a painful cycle, are in menopause, have been abused, are or want to become mothers, have had an abortion, have had a hysterectomy, want to heal inner wounds, want to change something in their life or simply want to live better.

These workshops include:

  • guided meditations
  • body movements
  • deepening the relation with the lunar cycles
  • Shamanic dynamics
  • mantras and music
  • sharing
  • integration

There will be 4 workshops and each will have a different theme.

Connecting to our womb
Friday, July 2 - Waning moon

Rooting through our womb
Friday, July 9 - New moon

Awakening the creativity of our womb
Thursday, July 15 - Waxing moon

Aligning heart-womb
Friday, July 23 - Full moon

They will be from 8.30-10:45pm. You must arrive by 8:45pm to be able to enter. No experience in Shamanism or knowledge of these topics is necessary, just an open and interested attitude and heart.

Each seminar will have a contribution of 15 euros. You can participate in individual seminars, or if you want to book all four seminars, instead of 60 euros, the contribution will be 50 euros.

For each seminar you will need a yoga mat (if possible), a pillow (if possible), comfortable clothes, some water and a notebook/agenda with pen.

Limited places - reservations are necessary.

For any information and to book you need to contact Isha via email, Facebook or Instagram.

Retreat: Birthing your dream

Some dreams are there to be born, not only to be dreamt. Yet, the birthing process of a dream is often a very difficult one that needs good tools and experience. In this retreat, we want to provide a safe and nurturing space, where you can explore your dream with all your senses and experience its birthing process.

It doesn’t matter what you have achieved or not in this life, the central question of this retreat is: at this moment of my life what is my yearning? What is my soul dream that wants to be born into life? What resistances are attached to this birth?

We are honoured to held this retreat in a place where a vision and a dream have been realised. Erbelathori is a sheepfold-refuge, at 1200m, located in one of the most evocative, uncontaminated and unexplored corners of Ogliastra. Erbalelathori was indeed a dream, a very difficult one even to be imagined, and almost impossible to be realised. Yet, now it stands as a jewel, a space of authenticity, originality and simplicity.

In this retreat, embraced by the wild and native nature of Sardinia and the purest waters of the Gennargentu, we dive into a shamanic journey of self-knowledge and exploration. A journey to listen to the voice of our soul, so we can see our dream, feel what resistances are attached to it and refine our intention. We, here at Artejanis, believe that our deepest dreams are precious threads to craft a fulfilling and enriched life.

Retreat: Back to the roots

When we get to Erbelathori we breathe, we breathe in the real sense. We breathe authenticity, silence and life. We breathe things that are not easily found in our current society. In Erbelathori we also can breathe freshness and freedom.

We would like to take you there, to that protected place, where the fragrances of thyme and lavender inebriate us, where the stars guide us through the night, where the mouflons retreat and where the waters sing and dance.

In this magical place we would like to create a space of silence to align ourselves with the rhythms of the mountain and of our being. A space to enter into a deep connection with ourselves. A space to reconnect, to feel and to listen.

This retreat is for all those who feel the call towards themselves, to their roots and to nature. Following the footsteps of Sardinian shepherds, we would like to connect with our origins, with our ancestors, with our land, with the simplicity of life.

This is a return that brings us back to the simplicity of life, to the essence of things, to the origin of everything. Shamanic medicines and Mother Nature will guide through this journey.

To listen, to be, to feel.

We offer:

  • Guided Meditations
  • Conscious walks
  • Work with the four elements
  • Shamanic dynamics
  • Mantras and shamanic music
  • Spaces of silence
  • Circle of sharing

Contribution: 275€

125€ to be paid by bank transfer to reserve a place.

Workshop: Element Air

A few weeks ago we went to Monte Arista and as soon as we arrived at the Domus de Janas – ancient graves of the spiritual guides – we felt a silence and a peace that we would like to share with you on this workshop devoted to grandfather air.

With this workshop we are ending our cycle of the four elements that we have started in January.

When the moon sets and the sun rises
We breath the silence
We meditate the Air
We welcome ourselves
We feel ourselves

Get in touch to join us.
