THE TEMPLE OF YONI: TRANSFORMATION THROUGH PLEASURE with GRACE HAZEL & LUCY HILL in IBIZA
14th - 21st SEPTEMBER 2019
Yoni is the Sanskrit word for for the vulva, vagina and womb, and means ‘divine sacred portal’, or ‘sacred temple’. We invite you to ask yourself, ‘do you treat your Yoni with reverence? Do you rejoice in your sexual nature with freedom and joy? Or have you subdued and suppressed your wildness and rawness to please others?… Have you dulled your voice down?
This very special solstice-aligned retreat, offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in transformational ritual, beautiful yoga, pleasure teachings and other tools which will allow you to tune in and find transformation by connecting to your Yoni. This retreat will guide you to reveal your highest potential for creativity, flow and vibrancy.
Do you dare invite your pleasure back? Do you choose to reclaim your life force?
It is time. Return to your true nature. Reclaim your ecstatic sovereignty as a woman.
A passionate advocate for sexual healing, body awareness, and empowering women to re-discover pleasure, Grace has taken the 10 years she experienced chronic Vulvodynia, and used it transform her life into an empowered feminine embodied movement. She guides women around the globe to eradicate all shame, guilt and pain they feel around their sexuality, and holds space for honest and real ‘Yoni’ centric conversations to occur.
6 years ago, Grace decided to throw away all the numbing medications and creams hospital specialists had prescribed her to treat a condition called ‘Vulvodynia’ and decided that she would heal herself. Since then she has delved into tantra, meditation, yoga, and shamanic healing ceremonies such as Ayahuasca and Peyote, and found that the greatest medicine above all is to listen deeply to your body, and use its wisdom to understand, heal and eradicate issues that are being experienced, rather than covering them up with pharmaceuticals.
Through doing this, she unravelled a world of understanding about the female body. What she realised during this process is that there is an epidemic of women experiencing similar issues such as painful sex, pussy numbness, low libido, inability to orgasm, body shame, intimacy blocks, and unfulfilling sex life, however nobody seemed to be talking about it. Now she writes, teaches and speaks about how others can reclaim their Yoni and pleasure in order to find mind blowing intimacy with their own bodies, which translates to epic sex with their lovers, enhanced creative power, and way more fulfilling and truth-led lives.
Grace curates a podcast called ‘Conversations with Pussy’ where women speak openly and rawly about their own real experiences. She leads workshops all over the world which guide women to begin conversations with their Pussy, and she works 1-1 with women to assist to transform and empower not only their sex life, but their entire life.
Grace’s mission is to bring forth a pleasure positive message to a much greater audience, unravel the taboo subjects that women have suppressed through fear of judgement, and create a healthy open space to talk about femininity, sexuality and what it is to be a woman."
WORKSHOPS & RITUALS
During the week, Grace will host a number of workshops and rituals. Using various tools including ceremonial cacao, meditation, sound and energetic healing practices along with shamanic ritual. We will create a sacred, safe space to share, connect and transform. In these workshops and rituals you will be fully clothed. Any practical techniques taught about pleasure are for you to soak up for your own personal practice, you will not be expected to use these during the retreat.
SACRED TEMPLE OF YONI
An invitation to connect to your yoni’s deepest wisdom, in a heart opening ritual supported by cacao and sound. Here you will be safely guided to move through any charge and shame you may feel around the authentic expression of your sensual and sexual nature as a woman. We welcome you to return home to yourself and your truth.
PLEASURE AS A BIRTHRIGHT
When a woman tunes into her pleasure, she is a force to be reckoned with. You are invited to step out of what you know, and bring forth a new experience of magic through your feminine power source, your Yoni. In this ritual you will be safely guided to learn about your deep potential for pleasure, you will discover delicious ways to relate with your Yoni, and find freedom owning your sex in every aspect of your life.
CLEARING & LETTING GO
Clearing and letting go of past lovers and partners is an essential practice for those becoming attuned to their yoni. In this ritual we will gather to reclaim our power back, releasing anyone who does not serve our highest and best good. This will allow you, your heart and your yoni to return to back to a state of clarity and balance.
SOLSTICE SEX MAGIC MANIFESTATION
Sexual Energy translates to life force energy. When a woman turns on her life force, she magnifies and enhances her potency to manifest and create what she desires to call into her life. Using the understandings and clarity built through the retreat, we will close by holding a ritual which will allow you to come back into your life at home inspired and ignited in your fullest power.

LOCATION | IBIZA
Ibiza's tangible magic and stunning beauty offers the perfect location for our retreat.
The retreat will take place in two beautiful adjacent villas, set amongst shady pines and olive trees, in 'the campo', yet nearby to the vibrant and pretty town of Santa Gertrudis.
Within the villa's grounds, you’ll find an abundance of space, including landscaped gardens and woods to meditate amongst, two pools to cool off in the Ibizan sunshine and multiple terraces, all set in the peaceful Ibenican countryside. Alongside indoor and outdoor yoga shalas and ceremonial spaces, you’ll find large family style kitchens, therapy rooms, shady lounges and gorgeous communal eating spaces.
One of our villas, ‘Es Joncaret’ was once the home of Ra Uhuru, the founder of The Human Design System. Under the sacred fig tree in the Sanctuary's garden, he channelled some very special information which led to the development of this insightful system, which can be used as a manual for each person's unique design. Ra lived here at the property for 10 years and he planted and cared for much of the garden and built the bungalows. His very special and unique presence is felt all over the property and the garden. Many people feel it immediately as they arrive, others just feel it in a sense of 'not wanting to leave'.
YOGA | LEANNA PLANT
Leanna teaches a very personal and unique style of flowing yoga. It’s strong yet sensitive, uplifting yet relaxing, energising yet harmonising. A complete body and mind workout.
“I love to blend the pure-precision of Hatha, the dynamic-rhythm of Vinyasa and fluid-freedom of Scaravelli”
This approach is interwoven with her personal training background and a strong knowledge of yoga anatomy; along with her passion for music and nutrition, all which helps form the foundations for a completely holistic approach to yoga.
Drawing on nearly 20 years worth of experience, Leanna is continuously learning with her inspirational mentors. Currently working closely with the profoundly inspiring John Stirk (author of The Original Body and body-mind yoga teacher), her Scaravelli teacher Catherine Annis and Gary Carter (Myofascial movement). Leanna shapes her classes to be playful, accessible and creative, with mindful and bold intentions. Cultivating a deeper connection to body, mind and heart.
