The Jade Witch is the Samhain edition of Miriam Ropschitz's body of work called The Jade Root. In this 3-day retreat, you'll learn how to start your own safe, sensual and therapeutic jade egg practice.
Nestled in a beautiful hotel in the hills of Switzerland's Val Medel in Graubünden, you'll join a group of sisters for a weekend of feminine embodiment practices.
The Jade Witch is a celebration of the feminine.
During the witch trials, being a sexual woman was punishable by torture and death. But here we are...
The Jade Egg practice is a powerful way for women to strengthen the root of their power, connect with their sensuality, heal trauma and optimise their health and radiance.
This will be a weekend to remember.
You'll learn the work of the Jade Root, an integrated and holistic approach to jade egg work where proper attention is paid to connecting back to your root, the feminine energy matrix and key preparatory practices. This weekend retreat will give you enough wisdom to develop your own healthy, powerful jade egg practice. This work supports women on all levels: spiritually, physiologically. emotionally and sexually.
Using the egg internally is but a tiny part of this work. You'll learn breast massage, energy circulation practices, Qigong, yoga, meditation, breath work and sound practices, all of which are used to prepare the body for internal use of the egg and to support the cultivation of sexual energy. This weekend will fill you up from the inside out. You'll feel more relaxed, radiant and experience the sense of profound wellbeing that comes with root connection.
During Samhain (Halloween), the veils are thin. This is a powerful time to spend among sisters doing deep work. We'll make time for a magickal Samhain ceremony on October 31st to celebrate the Witches' New Year.
You'll learn the foundational preparation practices for the jade egg and several beginner-friendly practices.
You'll stay for Saturday and Sunday night at the beautiful Hotel Medelina, a stylish Swiss-style mountain hotel.
You'll enjoy two delicious vegan/vegetarian meals a day. Our evening meal is 3 courses of seasonal, local delights.
Our weekend retreat takes place in beautiful nature, providing the perfect places for hikes and explorations.
The medelina is located on the upper edge of the village of Curaglia in the Val Medel, a side valley of the Surselva, with a view of the village, the valley and the surrounding peaks.
The Medels architect Conrad Pally has given the house its new face - charming and comfortable. With wood and stone from the region, processed by local craftsmen. Each room is dedicated to a nature theme, traditional craft or local culture.
This is a vegan/vegetarian retreat.
Every evening the long wooden table is set and you'll be pampered with a fresh, seasonal, surprising 3-course menu.
You will be served coffee from the Bezzera, homemade cake, homemade drinks and more.
