root of the gods day retreat  

A cultural day for all of the community to enjoy ancestral spiritual exercises, celebration, healing and learning!
How our ancestors came together, to remember how to be human.

A day where we come together, with all of our senses, to be with our air, earth, waters and our sacred grandfather fire.

This is the first ever Manchester retreat day in beautiful Lancaster that Robyn & Ahau from 'Root of the Gods' have held, just outside Manchester, hosted by the wonderful Michelle @ 'The Rewilding'. With a special family feast to round up the day.

This will be a day of togetherness, ceremony, community connection and collective play.  Bring your kids, bring your nan, bring a date, it's open to all, let's get together and feeeeel alright!!

🛖What is a SWEAT lodge?


A type of Sweatlodge, a Temazcal is a purification ceremony; for relieving stress, cleansing toxins from the body, releasing negativity and revitalising life force. Especially beneficial for your immune system & balancing mind, body & spirit. Essentially, it is a steam bath in a natural dome. Large rocks are heated on a fire outside, then placed inside a natural bowl in the center of the dome & doused with water and herbs. The medicinal steam & the power of the natural elements help us to open and cleanse. As a key part of indigenous medicine, it has been used widely for thousands of years for the treatment & prevention of disease, stress, weight loss, depression, skin conditions, fibromyalgia & much more.. The Sweatlodge dome itself represents the ‘Womb of the Earth’ as its energy is distinctly nurturing, bringing us closer to our Panchamama.

What is a Embodied Breathwork?

A ceremonial workshop connecting you to your own breath, body and roots.
Integrating Robyn's training in Hatha Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation, she merges this with her experience in other realms, expanded states and rooting practices.
This hour is to give you a chance to have a big sigh and get you back in your body and ready for the day.

What is Hapé?

Hapé is an ancestral medicine of the Amazon Jungle applied via the nose.
Hapé is used to silence the busy mind and bring peace and clarity, dropping into the body. It can be used to help you focus on activities - traditionally used before hunting.
Used for a variety of physical imbalances such as sinusitis, allergies, asthma,
fever, parasites as it cleans the body especially the nasal passages and stomach.

wild women & root of the gods  

🔥Welcome to this amazing, one of a kind women's day retreat - blending the ancient medicine of a sweat lodge, a wild women ceremony, water blessing all in an outdoor majestical wild space🔥


Our mission is to create a day of womanhood ‘initiation’ through the elements of earth, fire, water and air - where we will receive a rites of passage and rememberance of our feminine spirit


Initiations move you beyond naive certainties to embrace complexities as an opening to new, creative possibilities, rather than something that threatens your safety or sense of self. You awaken even more intimately to the recognition that the world and who you are can’t be separated, that everything is interconnected and that what you do to another you do to yourself. The wise self naturally recognises that we are all responsible for the unfolding story of our planet. There is no “them” its all “us”


Initiations have the potential to awaken us to a profound knowing and experience all of life as sacred, every element holding purpose and meaning and having a rightful place, the sense that we are within something greater than ourselves.


Wise Power

The day has been specially curated together with the essence of Lisa & Joanna from The Wild Women (female space holders). The wisdom of Robyn & Ahau from Root Of the Gods (earth wisdom, sweat lodges)

The magic of Michelle from The Re-Wilding (the land & event space)


We feel so blessed to bring to you this special day retreat for WOMEN only - of all ages & life-stages of womanhood.

Inviting in a small group of 30 women to keeping the day private, connected and grounded

🌏Earth, Fire & Water = we gather to strip away all our worries, concerns and ground in with the ancient medicine of the sweat lodge - also known as the “womb of earth” - the energy will be shared, spoken and sang in that space.

💧Water = we will cleanse, soothe and receive the blessing of the water by holding each other in a water baptism - you will feel held, supported and able to release into the flow of water

🔥Fire = we will burn away and allow the rise of the shakti power working with kundalini movement and breath. Allowing the essence of our wild woman to rise up and spread throughout our whole body

🌬Air = we will connect to air and all the elements through dance - being transported into other worlds and feeling a full embodiment of the practices of the day where we are all one, through the muscial journey of a live ecstatic dance.

🔥What will the day look like?

9:00am - We'll welcome you with a freshly foraged brew with plants from the land to energise our bodies and welcome you. 

*SWEAT LODGE  - this will be held by Ahau & Robyn together

*WATER BLESSING - Lisa & Joanna

*Yummy veggie lunch

*WILD WOMEN CEREMONY - kundalini/tantra movement & breath - Lisa & Joanna

All will be experienced in nature of the re-wilding magical land - Michelle


The Sweat Lodge will play and integral part in the day



In Mexico, the women's lodges are often called a 'Moon Lodge' guiding women back to their original feminine nature, to their womb space. Connecting with the powers of how we hold the waters inside of us, to remember the nature of how we carry the fire within our wombs. The women's lodge is a place to rebalance hormones, clean our emotional blocks, unleash the waters and the fires within us, to allow them to settle in a rightful place. A space for women to open their hearts and share, so that they can find communal listening, love, support and safety.



You’ll turn off the main road, pass some sheep and arrive on the coastline to find our spot at the end of Hillam Lane. We'll welcome you with a freshly foraged brew with plants from the land to energise our bodies and welcome you. 

Our family is very connected to the land and area and we always want to share this feeling of home with everyone who visits. We're located directly on the salt marshes of Morecambe Bay, where the coastline meets the land, steeped in local history, folklore and countryside traditions, we’ll share our local knowledge, and take you off the footpath to our private woodland and water spots.

There is always an opportunity to see wildlife and embrace the seasons, and always... the expansive unbroken vista looking out across the salt marshes of toward The Irish Sea and out toward the Lake District, with the tide coming and going daily you'll feel the energetic pull of the water and natural cycles of the season.
