Weaving Ritual: an Embodied Rebozo Retreat

With Collective Rebozo

May 8 - 12, 2024

In order to open and enter a new stage of life, we need to honour, integrate and celebrate where we’ve come from. This retreat, offered for the first time in Canada, is meant for those who are longing to cultivate more ritual in their lives.

Together we will weave a time and space of nourishment, tenderness, deep listening and community. Drawing from practices coming from traditional Mexican medicine and the rebozo closing ceremony, Andréa de Keijzer and Angie Yañez, will gently lead you through different rituals, both individual and collective, to name, honour and close stages of your life and open to new seasons of your path on this earth.

“Andréa and Angie offer wonderful ways of creating precious moments to honor passages in our life, something which we so need in today’s world.” – Dalia Seguin

The rebozo, a long Mexican scarf which represents the threads of life, will be used for massaging and closing of the body. Through embodied experiences, explore techniques to soothe, relax and connect to your body, mind and spirit. Share moments of song, talking circles and stories. Learn about the spiritual side of plants and simple yet profound ways to use them in your everyday life. Explore working with water, considered the first medicine, through the practice of the temazcal, herbal vapour baths.

Take a moment for yourself, away from the noise of everyday life to remember how to be held by the elements and by others, and how to create ceremony and ritual to reconnect once again to beauty and simplicity.

For Collective Rebozo, it is essential to express our recognition and gratitude to the people and communities who have passed on these teachings and practices to us. A percentage of 3% of what we earn is donated to community projects in Mexico and to our teachers.

Program Highlights

  • Guided practices reconnect with ritual and ceremony.
  • Spend time being in community, sharing songs, stories and talking circles.
  • Learn about a humble yet powerful medicine of the rebozo through the manteada (massage with the rebozo) and cerrada (closing of the bones with the rebozo).
  • Learn how to do a human temazcal (a ritual herbal vapour bath)
  • Be held, honoured, seen and celebrated for the path you have walked.
  • Enjoy a few days where time slows down, the nervous system calms so that the heart can blossom
