Women's Empowerment Half Day Retreat
Together we open a sacred space for healing, soul wisdom, deep listening, sharing, moving, and rest. We women are tired so tired of trying to hold it all together, to be perfect, to achieve. The time for the divine feminine is now, the time to heal is now, the time to hear your inner voice is now. The time to reclaim your story is now. On these special afternoons/days we reclaim the art of the feminine, we share, nourish, express, make, listen, cry, laugh, eat, talk, move and re-remember all that we are and all that we dream of and can be.

The MBSR course has allowed me to deepen my practice and really widen my lens to a whole host of meditations, all of which have a purpose, and support me with daily challenges, celebrations and most importantly, provide me with a clarity for awareness, kindness and compassion, not only for myself but for those around me.
Dawn, is an experienced teacher, who’s teaching style provides plenty of time to practice, ask questions and really immerse yourself in the wonderful journey of meditation.
This course has truly changed my outlook on life and everyday I look forward to giving me the time to spend time with me.
I wish I could do it all again.
I'd wanted to try a mindfulness course for ages and so, when I saw that Anahata offered just what I wanted, I signed up.
I never expected it to be such a journey, and found myself genuinely shocked at how much time I spend ruminating, overthinking and living in the past and the future. This eight weeks has shown me how to bring myself into 'now', to notice, to appreciate, to breathe.
I'm a 'work in progress' of course, but that's ok, I'm enjoying my practice. Dawn was as friendly and approachable as ever, and delivered the eight weeks in a really engaging way.
