Modern Dakini Retreat

WITH MOUN D‘SIMONE

31 July - 5 August 2024

Discover the depths of your inner world and reclaim your space with empowering practices. Acquire both practical and mystical tools to elevate your daily rituals and shape a new narrative for yourself. Throughout your journey, expect to be embraced, understood, and supported, as if by a loving big sister and the nurturing embrace of the land. Let go and allow your truth to flourish. Your life will never be the same again.

MY LIFE IS MY PRACTICE

“Imagine cultivating a true friendship with the most intimate parts of yourself.

Imagine gaining deep insights into the inner workings of your mind, your inner child, and experimenting with proven methods to transcend hidden limitations.

All while living fiercely and confidently in your body. In your truest essence and expression. The highest vision of you. This is Dakini.

The term "Dakini" from Tibetan Buddhism, represents the feminine embodiment of enlightenment. And because we are modern women, these ancient and visionary teachings are delivered with a modern, unconventional, practical, and the most powerful approach.

The pure form of action and desire. To face oneself and the world as a true vision. She is passionate, and purposeful, lives boldly in integrity, and is in love with all of life.

This opportunity is the perfect balance between mystical and practical, a powerful and unique combination of the visionary Buddhist teachings of the Dakini, modern psychology, art, and somatic techniques.

Empower your true self, and become a vision of your wildest dreams. We are here to walk through the mud together. Let us dance with the fears, transform the limitations, and make art from the messy and mysterious process of being fully alive and expressed.

No matter the heartbreak, grief, or doubt — we, as feminine beings, carry an unconditional capacity to welcome everything into our Practice.

This is my invitation for us to come together and show up raw, free, and bold.

To release expectations and make our bodies a temple, each day a ritual, and our lives an offering of love to ourselves and everyone around us. Self-power and creative expression come from feeling seen, heard, held, and expressed.

This is why we go on retreat in community.“

Much love, Moun

"A modern dakini is a woman who is her own muse. Who sees everything and everyone as her practice and inspiration."
