Into the Dark Womb – Animas Valley Institute Women’s Quest
April 6 – 17, 2021
Aravaipa Canyon Ranch, Arizona
We are called to offer this quest out of a recognition that there is an increasing number of women who are reconnecting to their innate wild, erotic, and embodied power—a power that is reflected in the patterns, cycles, and forces of nature. We are bearing witness to more and more women who are encountering symbols, images, and archetypes that are connected to the ancient feminine mysteries–an indication that our collective evolutionary moment is ripe for the (re)emergence of the vital and multifaceted powers and perceptions that can be birthed from womankind. We craft this journey from the knowing that the times we are living in require powerful and soulful embodiments by women, as we join forces with the living intelligence of earth and cosmos to birth a new era for humanity.
