Wisdom of the Heart Retreat
November 12 - November 13£400.00
Weekend of Medicine facilitated by Annabelle Nicoll & Morten Østhus
This two day retreat will leave you feeling, soft, nurtured, held and safe. Two days of embodied practices, relaxation and healing. We will go deep with the sacred medicines Kambo and Cacao. A journey to clear blockages, open our heart and soften into our inner truth.
You are invited to let go into the unknown on this deep dive into the heart and the wisdom that it is speaking to you. Welcoming all of you and where ever you are at into this intimate safe space. Every answer you seek, longing you crave and need you desire is within you, the only secret is learning how to access this. As we learn to tap into this potent guide within we learn to access ourselves at a deeper level than one can imagine.
Working within a container the weekend is intended to take you on a journey to help you receive the gifts that are waiting for you to unearth.
We start the weekend on Saturday. Gathering in prayer and meditation to access our truth and to voice our intended reason for feeling the call to this portal of discovery. We allow the Spirit of Kambo to work in a deep and profound way. Breaking for a delicious nourishing lunch. On Sunday we will journey with Kambo in a gentle yet deep way. We will spend the afternoon in sharing circle with music and a deep Cacao Ceremony to help you access the joy within.
The ceremony is set in a beautiful location in East-Sussex, where you will have a chance to really let go of any stress and unwind with nature. The space is deeply holding with comfort and restoration being the focus of the day. There will be medicinal teas and essential oils and plant medicines throughout the weekend. This is truly a sumptuous retreat of plant medicines.
You may choose to sleep over in shared facilities, but the weekend is not specifically intended for this.
Kambo Ceremony, Saturday
Our journey starts with an open circle and intention setting. Here we will explore what to expect, the history of Kambo and we will share why we feel called to work with these allies. Please arrive in good time.
Kambo is a powerful ally in clearing the blocks that hold us back, whether on a physical health level or in our lives. Kambo can bring purification and clarity.
We will finish up by 4pm-6pm in the afternoon. The invitation is to give yourself the gift of rest and recovery after the ceremony.
Gentle Kambo Ceremony, Sunday
To be held in the womb is to be held at the beginning. A soft, gentle, warm and nurturing environment awaits you on this journey.
Unlike traditional Kambo, this is a space that invites in all the senses even
before the medicine is served. We open up this time(around two hours) for you to drop deeply into yourself, relax the body and mind and arrive into presence.
A heart-opening ceremony, warm fire, beautiful smells and herbal medicine teas.
In preparing the body and mind to receive this medicine, we set intentions,
release expectations and call in the assistance of the Kambo Spirit to guide us to
where we need to go and what we need to see and experience.
Each journey is unique and we set a large container of time so that you can
really dive in and have the experience you need. This is a non-
purgative process, unlike traditional Kambo.
We are working with micro-dose amounts over a long time period while lying down. The medicine can evoke memories, emotions and sensations. Although Kambo is non-psychedelic, just like a shamanic journey,
you may also see some visuals. You can go as deep as you are willing to surrender.
Although this is a microdose amount it can still be a very potent frog medicine journey and we ask you to fill out a health form to see that you are safe to take. Not only will Kambo create a deep healing experience for you, it is also a rich peptide medicine strengthening your immune system, helping you gather insights and strength to heal and resolve anything that needs addressing in your life.
Cacao Ceremony, Sunday
On Sunday afternoon we dive into a beautiful heart opening Cacao ceremony to call in inspiration and love into your bodies. Cacao is a beautiful medicine to help integrate your morning journey and to bring you into a community space where love becomes the guide. There will be some movement and games to help you access the joy and pleasure that is our birth right to feel. You will leave healed, opened and softened with new perspective and direction in your life.
Cacao is the medicine of the Heart. Its qualities literally raise our vibration. As the powerful and subtle energy of cacao enters the body, it helps to remove, release and transform any blocks. During the ceremony, we drink this health-enhancing elixir together, allowing about 20 minutes for it to take effect. The effects last a few hours but the insights and teachings from Cacao can stay with us forever.
The process of working with Cacao is a beautiful synergy of higher frequencies. Its soft nurturing qualities bring a sense of abundance and energy to each ceremony. The effects are ever-expanding and awe-inspiring.
We will have a two hour online integration call on Sunday 20th Nov 4-6pm
Optional Sleepover. Details available once booked.
Once we’ve had a look at your form, you’ll be able to book your ticket.
Annabelle and Morten are two deeply special healers who know their work. They have been on the journey themselves and hold such a profoundly safe, supportive and present space.
I went to them first for a full day couple’s cacao ceremony and then for a women’s kambo womb-healing retreat and both were so special. I was scared to do Kambo but felt called and knew it was my time and the space held leading up to taking Kambo was so incredible, and I was so clear around my intentions by the time it was my turn, that I honestly had little to no fear left. I’m not exaggerating when I say that the weekend was truly life changing, and has marked the beginning of a new chapter for me, and so much of that is because of the deeply intelligent, loving, powerful and safe space that Garden of Alchemy hold. Environment is so much. If you are ready to do this work and alchemise your shadows into your strength, I cannot recommend Annabelle and Morten enough!
