Five Element Retreat – Embodying the Divine Feminine

Lasqueti Taoist Embodying the Divine Feminine Gathering

Retreat Dates: July 13 to July 17, 2017
You are invited to join Lenka Leduc and Noel Taylor, in a nourishing and inspiring five day journey into the realms of the Divine Feminine Taoist Energy practices to enhance body, mind and spirit at the deepest levels of your Being.
Together with a group of amazing adventurous women, Qigong and Five Element Energy workers we will share and co-create magic and personal empowerment.

You will learn techniques based from ancient Taoist and Chinese esoteric arts, such as meditation, qigong, journeying, and the cultivation of sacred energy, including using the ancient practice of the jade egg.

We will also venture into non-dual states of experience known as Tantra, an ancient meditative practice that focuses on the union with the Divine, source of all life. We will weave our multi-dimensional selves with our embodied creative nature, deepening into our sacred feminine well, which nourishes our body, heart-mind, and spirit on all levels.

We will awaken our divine feminine essence, generating greater amounts of vitality, pleasure, enjoyment, creativity, love and fulfillment in ourselves and in our lives.

Noel’s off grid homestead is a beautiful forest setting on remote Lasqueti Island. Lasqueti Isle is located in the Salish Sea, a one hour foot passenger ferry ride from French Creek, near Parksville, B.C.

Getting to and from Lasqueti Island

Ferry Info:

The 60 passenger (no cars) Lasqueti Island  ferry leaves from French Creek.  (2 miles north of Parksville on the Oceanside Highway.)

To attend the Refresher Retreat you need to arrive at French Creek by 9 am on Thursday, July 13th

Paid car parking is available for about $5. per day at the marina. There is a ticket machine across from the Harbour Masters office.

The ferry departs for Lasqueti at 9:30 a.m., so by arriving at 9 a.m., you will have time to drop your things off at the ferry landing and load them onto the ferry and then park your car.

The ferry can be crowded in the summer, so being at the ferry by 9 am. is a good idea if you want to get on! The next boat is 2:30 pm!

If you are driving from Victoria leave 2.5 hours for the drive to French Creek.

The ferry fare is $11.50 each way.
