The path of the Daughters of the Moon with Isha

We, women are moody beings. By moody I mean that we have the ability to experience different polarities in our lives and show various faces of ourselves, just like the moon. Often misunderstood, first and foremost by ourselves, what we often seek is a journey into ourselves, a path of authenticity to reveal our many nuances, feel our life purpose and express ourselves without fear to the world as what we are.

These paths are for women who want to deepen their relationship with the feminine. Who want to know themselves and the mysteries of their feminine, who want to heal and transform their wounds, pains and alchemise their traumas towards an energy of creativity and fertility. A path of purification and embodiment so that the wisdom of the womb can be awakened and listened.

Both online and in-person events are all experiential and shamanic journeys that require active participation and an intention to connect deeply with one’s feminine.

What we offer:

  • A protected and safe space for women
  • Shamanic sharing
  • Practices for the awakening of womb energy
  • Explorations of divine archetypes and women’s wisdom

Ritual: Purification Lodge for Abundance

Feeling abundant means to feel the richness of life, to perceive the many opportunities that life constantly brings us and to touch a sense of gratitude. In this, we can recognise that everything has a cycle of life and death: things start and finish – and, we are part of this beautiful dance of nature.

On the other hand, we also live in a world where crisis and scarcity are around and presented daily in the media. We might perceive the pain and violence of Mother Earth and her living beings and it might be difficult to see the abundance there. How can we change this perspective from lacking to satisfaction? How can we see the richness of our lives? How can we touch the abundance of cycles that have a beginning, a maturity and then, an end. How can we create a world of abundance for us?

When we connect to this sense of inner abundance, life too begins “to gift us", to bring concrete manifestations of this flow of abundance in different aspects of our life. In this ritual of the purification lodge, we will celebrate together abundance in all its forms to dive deeper in ourselves and to enrich various facets of our lives with abundance.

The ritual of the purification lodge - often also called sweat lodge - is a shamanic medicine for purification. Every ritual holds the possibility to receive, to heal and to dive deeper into the core of our being. We celebrate this ritual to open our heart and our intuition to the fine, healing vibrations of the Great Mother and to connect with the power and wisdom of the Four Elements. Each time we renew an old bond that reminds us again and again that we are children of planet earth.

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 all who want to connect more with the feeling of abundance and feel the richness of life.

What we offer:

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

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

Saturday 18th: 3pm to 11pm Sunday 19th: 10am to 1pm

Contribution: 65 to 95 euros depending on your possibilities. The ritual is limited to 10 people to provide an intimate and individual experience.

This ritual will be in Italian and in English.

Ritual: Purification Lodge for Peace

In Sardinia, there is a typical answer to the question “How are you?”. Sardinians often reply “You know, fighting”. But, what is this fight? And, how seeds of peace can be planted there? In a world where conflicts and wars are rising over and over again, in this ritual, we will look at our inner conflicts to learn and to see what peace means within us. What are our inner conflicts? Are there parts in us where we feel betrayed and are looking for revenge? What can we learn from them and how can we transform our inner battleships into lands of peace? The purification lodge will be our teacher.

In this ritual of the purification lodge, we will bring our inner conflicts to learn and to purify with the intention to plant seeds of peace within us and in the world. The purification lodge creates a protected space of care, learning and love and will support us to heal and purify our four bodies (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual).

The ritual of the purification lodge - often also called sweat lodge - is a shamanic medicine for purification.

Shamanic Retreat: Weaving the Threads of Life

When we were in Brazil for our Shamanic Initiation in February, we envisioned a longer retreat where people could dedicate four days for themselves. As we were experiencing how the medicine of Nature and the Fire Element were transforming our lives, we felt the importance to offer such a protected healing space also in our School of Life, such that people can go deeper in themselves and revise the different aspects of their lives to go into Autumn with a fresh and enriched energy.

You might be asking - “why might this retreat be for me?” After being more than 10 years in this shamanic path, we, Artejanis, know how nurturing it is when we slow down, stop for a moment and recalibrate and resynchronise our lives while being surrounded by wild nature. Accordingly, we will provide you a protected, wild and authentic space in Sardinia combined with shamanic guidance of care and love and the support of the medicine of Nature to find out what you need to grow into the next stage of your life.

So here it is, our long awaited shamanic offering for the year – a journey of 4 days in Sardinia to dive deep into the threads and diverse aspects of our lives to become more and more the Artist of your own life. In these days, you will have time to profoundly touch what aspects of your life wants to be seen, transformed and nurtured. Starting in the darkness of the new moon, we will day by day weave our threads of life into the crescent moon. The energy of the element Fire will be our guide.

  • Which are the threads that are not needed anymore and which are those there to stay?
  • Which are the threads that want to be transformed or revised?
  • Which are the new threads that want to be weaved into your life?

This shamanic journey will take place in a magic space in the Sardinian mountains, a jewel in uncontaminated wilderness - Erbelathori. Then, you can choose to stay some more days near the cristalline waters of the Mediterranean sea to integrate and relax. Our journey will go through the mountains and for whom wish, it can finish at the sea.

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: 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

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.

Ritual: Element Earth

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:

Ritual: Solstice Lodge

This ritual, at the gates of the summer solstice, offers a great opportunity to dive into our inner blossoming. During the solstice the earth and its inhabitants are in full bloom and at the pick of their energy.

With this ritual we want to welcome this subtle energy of the solstice to celebrate life, abundance and our flowering. What have we grown? Can we see ourselves as flowers? Are we capable of celebrating and enjoying our life and our abundance?

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 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 celebrate life and their beauty

What we offer:

  • 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.

Ritual: Winter Solstice Purification Lodge

The ritual of the purification lodge - often also called sweat lodge - is a shamanic medicine for purification. Every ritual holds the possibility to receive, to heal and to dive deeper into the core of our being. We celebrate this ritual to open our heart and our intuition to the fine, healing vibrations of the Great Mother and to connect with the power and wisdom of the Four Elements.

This ritual will be held in the Winter Solstice to celebrate the longer night of the year enlightened by the shining light of the Full Moon. Similarly, the purification lodge will offer a space to strengthen our inner light within the dark times of the winter and of the contemporary period.

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 all who want to strengthen their inner light.

  • Mantras and shamanic songs

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.

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
