Women’s Temple Group
with SimoneRita Egger
June 21 – 26, 2020
In this training, you will learn all the how-to’s of facilitating an ongoing Women’s Temple group. You will gain insights into the background theory of women’s group dynamics as well as have the opportunity to practice feminine leadership and to receive constructive feedback.
The learning process is a carefully balanced mix of theory and experiential transformation. Many of the practices are dynamic and interactive (e.g dance, dyads, respectful touch), but we will also spend time in silence and inner contemplation.

To be certain that this is the right training for you, please make sure that you have some experience with the Awakening Women practices before you attend.

In depth study and background theory of the Temple group practices
and much, much more…

Is This Right for Me?
Although it is not mandatory, it is best if you have a basic understanding of feminine/embodied spiritual practice and if you have attended Women’s Temple before. (You can do a self-study course here. Or go to our home page to find a list of temple groups near you.)
We go deep into direct experience through practice. Although there are plenty of breaks to rest and integrate, this is an intensive. Know that the Shakti-based embodiment practices can open stronger currents of energy in the body than we are used to.
These are not therapeutic programs. If you are in any way feeling unstable psychologically or are going through a severe crisis, we ask you to not join this event.
One of our core practices involves respectful touch. Your boundaries will of course always be respected, but if you feel a strong resistance to touch, this is probably not for you. We practice respectful touch a lot in our circle to bring presence into our bodies and cultivate the capacity to allow more life energy to flow through us.
We have limited space for this event. We will create a waiting list once it is full.
Saturday is an arrival / departure day. The training will start Sunday morning, June 21st and end before the lunch break on Friday, June 26th.

The Temple Training has changed me in ways I was not expecting. It connected me with something bigger, with something deeper inside myself and awoke me for a different way of living – more aware, loving, compassionate and in touch with my true essence. Deeply grateful for this retreat.

The temple training is the most precious thing I can recommend to you. It has become a kind of undercurrent for my work, for my whole life. What I’ve learned and experienced here runs like a thread through me. When I assisted the training a year later, I was curious what it would look like behind the scenes. I found exactly what I experienced as a participant: clarity, love, trust, truthfulness. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that!

My experience at the training has been very rich, deep and allowed me to embody what truly a women`s temple is all about. The teachings were delivered with such focus and clarity, and supported so well with the practices. It almost didn’t feel like learning but living the wisdom. This feels very special. Thank you for creating such a safe and open space for us all to be part of this Sisterhood.
