THE BECKONING- 7 Day Life Changing Women's Retreat
SUNDAY 15 MAY- SUNDAY 22 MAY 2022
The day always comes when we feel a calling. It beckons us from our familiar world into listening to the voice of our heart and soul. It grows with time. The call becomes louder and louder until we realize that we must answer.
Do you feel the calling?
ARE YOU READY TO AWAKEN THE INFINITE POTENTIAL OF YOUR FEMININE POWER?
Imagine spending 7 days in the lush, earthy forest of Denmark connecting to the MAGIC of your womanly body, heart and soul.
Imagine immersing yourself in the depths of your sexuality, emotions and vulnerability in the total safety and power of a deeply loving authentic sisterhood.
We live in a world that has little understanding of the unique power of feminine magic. Most women's lives and careers are based on an outdated masculine model of over-doing and under-being. The feminine realm is that of intuition, flow, ritual, mystery, connection, play, dance and creative juice.
It is time for us to wholeheartedly embrace the feminine realm, together. An overly masculine mode of keeping busy will simply no longer do. It is time for us to wake up and live from the core essence of our true feminine nature.
DO YOU FEEL CALLED TO BE INITIATED INTO THE ARCHETYPES OF THE LOVER, WARRIOR, SEDUCTRESS, PRIESTESS, MOTHER & QUEEN?
This retreat is themed around initiatory rites into powerful feminine archetypes. We will explore the relationship between different Goddess energies within us - in both their dark shadow and radiant light. You will experience practices to activate each archetype as well as magical rituals to call these powerful energies forth.
You will also Experience:
Morning Movement and Meditation Sessions with Ava Irani
Morning yoga and meditation sessions with Ava are a gentle flow and restorative practice to strengthen and open. Expect a delicious medicine for the physical, emotional, energetic and mental body, for all body types and shapes.
Ava uses the movement practice as a portal for therapeutic embodiment that opens the heart and unlocks a profound healing and creative wisdom that lies within you.
Temple Dance Nights with Ava and Raven
Ava and Raven will guide you through Temple Dance; a sensual dance journey to tap into how each archetype feels at an embodied level. These evenings are a place to come home to your body, to say yes to your aliveness, your authentic expression and your true feminine power. From the time you enter the temple, you will experience the most magical, juicy, radiant and creative version of yourself through a shedding of the performer and an embrace of who your true soul essence.
Other themes of the 7 days include:
INNER UNION - THE SADHANA OF OUR TIME
The dance of masculine and feminine energies within you is the secret source of your personal power. This is why the sages of the Shiva-Shakti traditions in Tantra put so much emphasis on cultivating inner union. Whether you are wanting to improve your relationship, attract your ideal partner, live your dream job, or experience ultimate liberation, you require the grace of your own inner union.
AWAKENING SEXUAL POWER
As women, for us to fully open to our magic, we must reconnect to the true power and radiant love that vibrates up from our yonis and pulsates through our bodies so that we are in true, full bodied alignment. You will be taken through an intensive experiential journey of opening to the flow of feminine sexual energy, preparing you to naturally share what you learn with a lover or partner. Together, we will form a loving relationship with our breasts and our yonis. We will connect our heart and with our sexuality, drop the performer and learn how to process feelings deeply and fully.
CLEARING AND BIRTHING THE NEW
Each archetype correlates to an energy centre in the body. These energy centres hold specific unconscious patterns that need to be cleared. This retreat is an opportunity for a shamanic clearing of these blockages. We will then create magic together in mystical evening rituals to call forth the power of each archetype within the context of our inner union.
WHO IS THIS RETREAT FOR?
This retreat is suitable for women who have not worked with Raven before, as well as those who have worked extensively with her. These teachings are mystical and magical, and relevant to right now.
You will be met exactly where you are.

About your Guest Facilitator:
Ava Irani (Functional Spirituality)
Ava is the director of Functional Spirituality and the Fremantle-based yoga studio ‘Spanda School’. Her deepest passions are embodied movement, therapeutic sensuality and inquiry into the mystical nature of ‘Being’. Her yoga journey started in 2008 when she tasted her first, sweet savasana at the end of a 90 minute hot yoga class. Hooked on the Bikram practice, she practiced daily while completing her degree in philosophy at the University of Sydney.
In 2011, she completed her first 500hour yoga teacher training, along with her very first 10 day silent meditation retreat. She would follow this up with another 500hr YTT from Hridaya, countless yoga trainings, silent, dark and solo retreats, as well as teaching at both the Agama and Hridaya headquarters and worldwide.
In 2016 she moved back to Perth to open her studio Spanda School in Fremantle. Spanda School is the home of an open-hearted community of hundreds of yogis across W.A. Her journey started with the fervent passion for sexual awakening and non-dual libration. However over the years her path has matured with a more functional approach that considers the wide-spread complex trauma that lies at the heart of almost every obstacle to happy, healthy and connected living. She has trained with Paul Muller-Ortega (Blue throat yoga), NARM (complex trauma), Cecily Milne (yoga detour) to name a few.
Ava is predominantly known for her thriving yoga studio, silent retreats and the phenomenal teachers that emerge from her yoga and trauma-informed certifications. She lives in beautiful Western Australia with her husband Jarred of Kommunity brew and their fur-child Honey.
