Taking the Feminine Alchemy to a whole new level
A 7 Month Immersion brought to you by the Shamanic Heart Sisters Sarah Davis & Louise Harris
After running the feminine archetype workshops over the last 2 years, we have experienced first-hand how deep this work can go. As well as a well of deep wisdom into the feminine, we work within a shamanic container which amplifies the sacred and healing nature of this work.
It is our desire to support a group of women invested in their own personal growth through a 7-month immersion, moving through the archetypes and weaving the wisdom held within each of these feminine energies in our lives.
By coming together as circle of women we create a sacred sisterhood that intertwines all our magic.
Who is it for?
This unique way of working with the archetypes over the 7 months will be available to those who can commit to the full journey, where we will meet in person each month to learn about the archetype in a full-day workshop. We will then work with that archetype throughout the rest of the month to integrate the wisdom and the healing before moving on to the next one.
This will include daily meditation, a workbook and regular check-in points with the safe container of the other women holding space for each other.
We feel the optimal number is 8-10 to keep the container intimate and safe.
Do you feel stuck and disconnected from yourself? Maybe you're struggling with overwhelm or exhaustion. Or do you feel like something is missing from your life like you’ve lost your sense of identity and purpose?
Sadly, the Feminine energies within western society and many other cultures have been suppressed. Women have forgotten their own cyclical nature and the deep wisdom they hold within themselves. On a deeper level, many of us feel this potent energy within us wanting to rise.
There has never been a better time to fully step into your own power, to re-connect with your roots to Mother Earth
This journey will feel like coming home to yourself. A chance for you to remember your own feminine essence and magic. As you journey through each of the archetypes you will see the parts of yourself that have been neglected or suppressed. You will learn to reintegrate these back into your life and learn how to embody them moving forward.
If you are ready to reclaim your own magic then this is for you!
What to expect
The Feminine Alchemy journey includes an in-person ceremony for each of the archetypes which will be held on the second weekend of each month. Each workshop will combine movement, sound, philosophy, journaling, reflections, and sharing.
Together, we will:
Understand the energies, history and philosophy around each of the archetypes
Introduce you to the corresponding goddess energy we will work with
Work with the connected chakra
Identify how each of the archetypes plays out in your own life
Journaling and reflection on the archetype
Creative writing practices
Light and shadow aspects of each archetype
The embodiment of the archetype through movement and sound
Light language transmission
Guided journey into the energetics of the archetype
After the ceremony, the following 3 weeks of the month will be time to discover and integrate the archetype we are working with. You will effectively live in the energy of each archetype and goddess for 4 weeks, until we move into the next one.
You will be provided with the following
A guided shamanic journey to sit with the energies of the archetype and goddess we are working with
A daily ritual for integration – this will vary depending on the archetype. Practises may include dancing, journaling, creative writing, making offerings to the earth, laying in the darkness, taking long soaks in the bath
A workbook – this will take you deeper into the darker elements you are holding around the archetype, uncovering subconscious patterns and beliefs that you may not have been aware of
A supportive Facebook group where all women can support each other’s journey and reach out for support

THE MAIDEN - PERSEPHONE
Saturday 14th October 2023
Innocent, carefree, playful, enthusiastic, naïve, enchanting, trusting, free-spirited, fresh-faced, and radiant. This archetype truly embodies new beginnings. She’s easily swayed and impressionable, full of life and potential, and ready to take risks and experience adventure. Her unspoiled nature lends to a limitless amount of trust towards herself and others. Many of us long for this youthful part of ourselves but also still have wounding from our maiden years, which may manifest in later life as people-pleasing, poor boundaries, and a deep longing for something more, the fairy tale that we were taught growing up. By fully integrating this part of ourselves we mature into a woman of character and strength but also respect and honour the parts of ourselves that still desire a free-spirited approach to life.
THE MOTHER - MARY MAGDELENE
Saturday 11th November 2023
Unconditional love, nurturing, caring, protective, maternal instinct, desire to create, glowing, sensual and abundant and bursting with fertility. Her focus has turned from herself to caring for others. She longs to birth her own creations as she enters another layer of maturity and understanding of herself. She must be careful not to get blindsided by caring for others, as too much “giving” can often result in not enough “receiving”. As Mothers, many of us forget to tend to our own needs as we are too busy putting other people's needs first. As she ventures into Motherhood, she sees her own inner child, she reflects on her own upbringing, she may uncover wounds created by her own mother that she does not wish to pass on to her own children. This is the place where our inner child healing often begins, as we learn to see the parts of ourselves that may not have been tended to as a child and we learn to love ourselves through it. As we do this it brings us closer to our connection with the great Mother, Mother Earth. Our Cyclical nature.
THE LOVER - APHRODITE
Saturday 9th December 2023
Sensual, playful, lustful, values pleasure and exploration, holds much importance in sexual relationships. She holds the relationship to our bodies, our relationship to love. Self-love, love of family, love of children, love of others, love and connection to all things in our life. Our deepest truths around relationships, connection and intimacy with another. She is a true exploration of the heart, not just to give love but also to receive love. She opens us up to a way of being that’s more embodied, that softens, that flows and moves intuitively. We start to make love to the whole of our world. In such a linear and logical world, to embody this archetype is crucial to our health and well-being. She takes us from the mental realm into our bodies, our wombs and our hearts. She knows connection, passion, intimacy and how to be in a relationship to herself and others.
THE QUEEN - ISIS
Saturday 13th January 2024
Authentically herself, Committed to her cause, and super focused on her own journey of transformation, this archetype Is balanced, and grounded - she knows who she is and what she wants. She has a strong sense of self and knows her worth in the world. Her life is a living example to others around her. Her confidence can be seen by others as threatening or over bearing. With power comes great responsibility, if not aware of her shadow side she can come across as overbearing and arrogant.
THE WARRIOR - LILITH
Saturday 10th February 2024
Determined, fierce, independent, self-assured, purposeful and dynamic. This archetype embodies the doer within us, our need to strive and achieve. To demonstrate dogged persistence for our dreams and goals and to fight for what we believe in and stand for. She has many masculine traits and for many of us comes naturally as it's been the western way for many years. Her shadow can manifest as her becoming too rigid, judgemental and black and white in the way she thinks. She may feel uncomfortable asking for help due to her fierce sense of independence.
THE WILD WOMAN - KALI MA
Saturday 9th March 2024
Erratic, unpredictable, loud, self-expressive, confident, moody, short-tempered, dominating, impressionable and emotional. For many of us, she has been truly suppressed for fear of us being misunderstood and shunned. She seeks freedom in all areas of her life. She has an awakened soul and is not scared to use her voice. She knows how to move her body freely and does so as an expression of who she is. She may express anger and rage and can often be misunderstood by those around her. She craves excitement, passion and adventure and can easily become bored or restless. She needs a sense of purpose, to dance and express her raw energy.
