∇ SOME TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR PREVIOUS RETREATS ∇
Oh my! Where to even start. This retreat was exactly what I always dreamt of finding and more. I feel like I stepped into a whole new world that had been waiting for me all this life and I finally feel like I have made it home. A deep remembering of all the wisdom that Natalie and Jacqui shared. The retreat was incredible. We dived deep into the ancient feminine practices and all students, teachers and assistants came together in a beautiful loving and supportive way. Natalie has such wisdom and personal experience which was so powerful to witness and learn through. Jacqui has grounded wisdom and love for this path. I am so grateful to have both Natalie and Jacqui as teachers, mentors and friends. This is such an exciting time in my life and I am so looking forward to what unfolds as I walk this priestess path and share this wisdom with the world when the time is right.

The Womb awakening retreat facilitated by Natalie at the Institute of Feminine Arts was a journey where deep healing commenced for me in a very big way. I showed up with all my armour, expressing my deepest inner truths and wounds that I have been carrying, and not voicing out where it mattered. I was received with so much love, support, no judgement and was given space to process what was going on for me. I absolutely loved the physical and emotional experience I journeyed on and I highly recommend anyone wanting to get in touch and reconnect with their feminine beauty within, in all its glory to take the step forward in discovering her. She is waiting to come out and to be seen.

Natalie & the Institute Of Feminine Arts have taken me on a multitude of epic journeys over the year that have filled me with many shamanic and archetypal energies have challenged and embodied my being. I was seeking the purpose in serving in this world and both the Apprenticeship and the Facilitator Training Retreat brought me on the path of awakening the woman (womb) within which I had been called to many years before being a midwife. What I’ve been looking for this past decade is the reclaiming of the feminine power where women connect with their inner well of wisdom which gives them the knowledge of their power of creation. Through the Institute Of Feminine Arts teachings and courses, I can now assist women to journey into their birthing experiences by understanding their womb wisdom, their gestational & birth traumas, to birth a baby through an awakened womb that has supernatural possibilities, as the baby would be fully inhabiting its true blueprint for life on earth.

I came HOME on this retreat. It was a deep process of REMEMBERING. Walking back into the temple space I had spent so many lifetimes priestessing in… being with my sisters here again… it instantly brought me to tears as I was anointed and welcomed. The whole week was SO EPICALLY TRANSFORMATIONAL. Since then a huge chunk of my programming has unravelled. 2 months on I’m still moving through the huge work and discoveries that were made here. I’ve never felt so held, supported, and safe in a retreat space before. This work is super deep and needs a really safe container to be fully respected and truly embodied and this was the most nurturing, loving, and true container for the feminine that I’ve experienced.
Thank you, gorgeous goddesses.

This blessed Womb Awakening journey, held in the wild feminine land of Bali, brought me to a deep and powerful connection with my womb gnosis, and ultimately changed me in a way that is impossible to describe in words. Throughout the seven days, I felt a colossal shift in my experience of being a woman, into embodying my innate femininity and masculinity in balanced, wombic ALL-ness. I experienced the true nature of sisterhood and found some of the deepest and most potent connections with the rooted womb sisters who shared this journey alongside me. Our wonderful facilitators beautifully interwove their individual teachings, knowledge and offerings. These amazing women held space in a deeply tender and magical way, sharing their own journeys, truths, and vulnerabilities in a way that felt non-hierarchical. The retreat is structured to combine feminine spirals of experiential learning with deep theory, and beautiful ancient feminine womb practises. It is a true moon-womb mystery school – a method of re-learning and re-membering what is so innately feminine. This program in Bali changed my life – my eternal gratitude to ALL the womb sisters who, in their deepest love, guidance, authenticity and acceptance, know not the strength and wisdom they bestowed upon me… NVB ~ London
It is an unforgettable experience to immerse in The Temple of the Feminine Arts lead by Nat. All the chantings, dancings and ceremonies during the process, let me connect back to my womb’s heartbeat and Mother Earth’s heartbeat, I felt the connection with my spiritual mother, Gaia and embodied the vibration of my Divine Feminine Lineage. Such a strong sisterhood energy connected between Nat and Jaq and surrounded during the retreat, all of us are well connected as a Divine Feminine Community. With a profound experience of shamanic and healing, Nat brought us healing and transformational energy and Jaq has very beautiful soft power. We went through a beautiful, gentle and transformational process with their presence.

“The retreat with Nat has been a very beautiful and powerful experience for me. I felt loved, held and cared for throughout. Importantly, there was an all-permeating spirit of sacred sisterhood that allowed me to dive into the practices and do some deep emotional work, healing my wounds and bringing into loving awareness layers of previously repressed grief, anger and shame. I feel very grateful to Nat and Jacqui for holding the Temple space in the way they did, for their integrity, gentleness, generosity and wisdom. I would love to experience their presence again and would genuinely recommend this sacred work to those who feel called to connect with themselves and the source within.

I attended the most recent Womb Awakening Retreat in Bali, and feel absolutely blessed to have been guided through one of the most powerful, potent, love-filled weeks of my life! Nat + Jaq created and held a beautiful, safe container for all of us to explore some of our deepest traumas, whilst continually returning us to Love! Everything about this retreat was perfectly planned, well-executed and thought out. I especially loved the combination between theory, practical and ceremony. The week felt like one big ritual, a true gift of guidance. Infused with Goddess energy, womb awakening practises and sacred sisterhood. I am deeply grateful for this experience and cannot wait to continue learning from Nat and Institute Of Feminine Arts in the future. I also loved the way these two women work together – so complimentary!
