Temple of Mary Magdalene Retreat – Slovenia
Sacred Sexuality and Inner Alchemy for Women
Ljubljana, Slovenia Weekend Retreat
7th – 9th June 2019
Our sexual energy is an incredible, yet underused source of evolutionary power that we have. Most of us are only experiencing a tiny spectrum of the full range of possibility that our sexuality has to offer us. Sex most often drains us because we are not circulating it well.
Often we shut it down when we are single or not with a partner disconnecting from our vital life force or sadly we close down sexually even when we are with our partner, holding back from each other what can often bring us great spiritual fulfillment and intimacy.
Culturally we are given such mixed messages about our sexual energy, we have this crazy global obsession with sex yet we are discouraged from having sex and exploring it fully. It is time to reclaim our sexual power and harness its full potential.
Our sexual energy has a divinely erotic intelligence that when we learn to circulate it through our body mind system it literally lights up our lives, enlivening positive qualities and awakening archetypal soul aspects of ourselves we never knew existed.
The beautiful thing is that we can explore our sacred sensual healing arts either with or without a partner. Through learning to cultivate our sacred inner fire, and awakening Kundalini Shakti we can experience radical transformation and creative liberation.
Embodying Shakti - The Divine Feminine
This weekend you are invited to come and explore the full spectrum of your sensual energy and dance with her as the evolutionary power of Shakti.
Most spiritual practices that awaken higher consciousness use different methods to generate Kundalini Shakti, the sacred fire within.
Kundalini Shakti is awakened by sacred feminine embodiment practices that combine devotion to the Divine Mother, to connect you to the earth and generate energy in the womb and pelvic bowl.
Kundalini Shakti manifests in the body and psyche through many of the Divine Feminine archetypes she is the all-loving, compassionate Divine Mother, the embodied manifestation of love teaching us the power of radical acceptance and she guides us to embrace all aspects of ourselves with compassion.
When the Divine Mother expresses as Kundalini Shakti, she manifests as a life stream of pure ecstatic, vital, loving energy, rekindling and awakening our passion and zest for life. She is pure, raw creative power, an evolutionary force that when unleashed will reveal your true gifts and soul calling and give you the power and energy to manifest your dreams—dancing in your full power, living your joy, unveiling your inner radiance.
Shakti also manifests as the sensual erotic lover, she is the wild women, she is a sweet current of love opening our hearts, she is ecstatic and she is is a power of transformation like no other.
She is a force with in us that longs to bring out our magnificence, as much as she shows us where we limit ourselves and hide. When Shakti is running, she connects us to ourselves, to each other and to the divine.
The Taoists call the cleansing of the sexual organs of emotions “inner alchemy” once the organs are cleansed and healthy and you have developed the ability to transform sexual energy into life force energy your spiritual development can really accelerate.
In our weekend together we will focus on clearing our main sexual organs of past emotions so that we can experience, more pleasure and vitality and creative life force.
On this weekend retreat you will:
Harness your evolutionary super power
- Learn some Kundalini Dance, White Tantra practices and learn how to circulate your sexual energy in ways that will enhance your creativity, bring you more vitality and aliveness, deepen your connection to your intuition and awaken the fire of transformation in your body.
Embody Kundalini Shakti
- When our sexual energy is unleashed with a deep longing for union with Divine, we can experience the ecstasy of divinized sexuality that ecstatically lights up our body and that is a gateway to God, then Shakti comes alive inside you and you feel the fullness of what it is to experience your sexuality as an ecstatic, evolutionary, transformational power of life. This experience of sexual energy that flows upwards through the body, catalysing ecstatic awakening is called Kundalini Shakti in the eastern tantric traditions.
The Art of Emotional Alchemy
- Learn embodiment keys of breathe, sound and movement, that will support you to open and clear your chakras and sexual organs of any surpassed emotions including sexual shame, body shame and can transform past hurts, supporting you to come closer to your current partner or can help you heal and complete with the past to get you ready to magnetise a new relationship.
Embody The Tantric Priestess
- The Tantric Priestess knows her body is a conduit for Divine energies to pour through. She is sexually sovereign and claims her sexual energy as her own. Her heart has opened in devotion to the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine, God Goddess Source, she opens her body as a vessel for Divine Love to pour through. She has stopped seeking for love outside herself and turns to Divine to fill her cup. She loves all men and woman in her life, she loves her children, she loves her friends, she loves all who touch her life. When she makes love, her full body lights up in ecstasy and she makes love to know union with the Divine.
Embody The Divine Mother
- We will invoke the Egyptian Goddesses Isis as the Divine Mother to support us to activate and awaken the womb. The womb is a powerful creative source in a womens body.
- Learn Ovarian Breathing and Womb Cultivation Practices to enliven your unique feminine creative essence.
Awakening your tantric ecstatic sexual blueprint
- Learn breath and tantric energy practices to raise your sexual energy through your higher chakras and awaken the ecstatic sexual pathways of your body, so you can experience full bodied ecstatic orgasms.
Reclaim your sexual sovereignty
- Sexual sovereignty is a reclaiming of our ecstatic sexual energy from past pain, stories, guilt and shame and establishing a direct and intimate relationship with Divinity through our bodies. Woman are the keepers of the sacred sexual mysteries, it is possible to self generate sexual energies and ecstasies without a partner as with or without a partner we must learn to balance the solar and lunar, masculine and feminine currents within us to ecstatically birth your higher evolutionary blueprint.
Embody the Benevolent Queen
- She is a Queen because she is not afraid to be seen. She shines her radiant light upon all beings she touches. She is a womb centred woman and her voice echoes her instinctual wisdom and deep heart knowing. She has faced the shadow of power and control and has humbled to Divine Will. She no longer tries to control life but has learnt the art of surrendering to the mystery both in her sexual relationships and in her relationship to life. She has faced the shadow of judgement and has opened her heart in compassion.
- The Queen is an ecstatic devotee of Divine and her life is lived through the heart in service and in surrender to Love. Her heart has been broken open many times so her compassion flows to others and to herself.
Balance the Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine – Shiva Shakti
- The Queen has integrated both her inner masculine and inner feminine and is at peace with men or the masculine side of the feminine. She has faced her shadows of, criticism, control, manipulation and complaining to get her needs met and has learnt how to bring out the King in her man, and the best her beloved partner.
- In her erotic expression the Queen is coloured by the full spectrum of the key sacred feminine archetypes. She is allowing her erotic self to be seen, she is a womb centred woman, who can let her wild woman, her tantric priestess, her wise woman wisdom be expressed, be felt be seen by her beloved. In sexual intimacy she is no longer hiding, she is all revealing. In this final initiation we will allow the full erotic spectrum of ourselves be seen.

Praise for Leyolah
What the woman are saying from previous courses…
‘For the rest of my life, I will see my womanhood as two distinct phases – before and after Leyolah and her deeply transformative courses graced my existence. Like many women, I was overworked and under – blissed. Before, I was part of what I feel is an epidemic with modern women – we try to do everything, working full time while trying to please everyone but ourselves.
I’ve tried other “self-help” stuff, all promises and never any true change. Since I’ve worked with Leyolah my world has nothing short of transformed, a change that is palpable and that my friends are amazed by. The practices she teaches are so potent, I have cleared grief, shame, pain, rejection consciousness – have connected deeply to a constant source of support and love in the Divine Mother, and feel in my daily life uplifted, blissful, sensual and deeply in my body. I have re-connected to my womb and my regular periods have returned. Words don’t do it justice – I truly feel Leyolah is on this Earth to bring women into their true power. What a gift to be part of this global sisterhood, to have moved from surviving, longing for someone or something to save me, to thriving, to feeling this evolution of consciousness, to rising and cultivating the Divine Feminine in myself and in the collective.’
– Adrienne Roumasset, Washington State, USA
‘I feel like I can finally feel my own heart. Like really feel it. Something I couldn’t quite feel this way before. I am so grateful to have been led the way to the Priestess Rising Course. Grateful to have not only been shown the doorway, but to be also given the key. Now I clearly see the way in, and its humbling and honest and sacred.
I feel like this course and my full participation in it, was the thing that really woke me up from these thirty three years of slumber. I’m so tired of sleeping. So tired of turning my back, saying “someone else will do it.” This means YOU need to do it. I want to be part of the big work. I am here to work hard, but use my gifts soley towards my ultimate purpose. I now see that my piece in this universe is vital to the course of history, and so is yours. Reclamation of your most fundamental and authentic gifts to this world. We need you Priestess.
Come out now all my sisters, its time to come out of hiding, It is safe to let our light shine. This Priestess has risen, rising and still rising… Thank You Leyolah’
– Sarah Rose, Squamish, British Columbia, Canada
‘I recently gifted myself The Priestess Rising Course offered by Leyolah Antara and it was the best money I have invested in myself in a long time. It was like receiving a massage for my soul delivered day after day for 21 days in the comfort of my own Home on my Yoga Mat. Leyolah’s voice like a swan glided through my ears effortlessly guiding me to what felt like Home. Leyolah was able to Reconnect me to my own Divinity and wash my Spirit clean with Love and Light. She channelled the Goddess and allowed for me to Dwell in the vibration of Shakti, the Feminine Power of the Goddess. By the end of my Priestess Rising course and now into 2017…I have witnessed my Business Flourish, my Teenage Daughters and I are connecting in ways I have only dreamed of, my Love life has exploded with ever deepening Ecstasy, and Abundance has been showering upon me. I am stepping forth into my Life as a Priestess that truly has risen as a Phoenix and I have reclaimed my Power and Purpose and am taking charge of my Life. Thank-You Leyolah for being a Living Example, a True, and Powerful Priestess for our Divine Mother, Delivering all her Daughters in a return to the Lap of the Mother, and for sharing your gifts so generously, inspiring us all to have the Courage to do the same.’
– Hillary Ries, Shekinah, Canada
‘WOW… what amazing courses… I have so much gratitude for Leyolah for bringing this work through, she is such an experienced and heart centred teacher and has really helped me on my path! I know this work is a big part of my soul journey and awakening process and will from my own experiences, form part of the work I will do with others ~ I can’t recommend her enough!!’
– Andrea Taylor, Liverpool, United Kingdom
‘I have also been feeling much calmer and centered since I have been regularly working with Leyolah. Feeling support from other magical women priestesses in the circle has also been of a tremendous help. And this is one of the things that sets Leyolah apart from other teachers I have worked with: she does not take a hierarchical role as a teacher; rather she empowers us all in the circle to both learn and teach, to share our gifts with each other. Working with her empowers you, rather than makes you dependent on her, as sometimes is the case with some teachers. She empowers you to find your unique gift and share it with the world. She surly shares her gifts generously, our dear Shakti Mama Leyolah.’
– Ivanna Gitanna, Zagreb, Croatia
‘Joining Leyolah’s course was my last attempt of healing my feminine rage and brokenness. Each course immersed me deeper into the waters of Sacred Mysteries. Leyolah’s words bypassed my mind’s consciousness and entered a deep knowing within me that I had forgotten. Her wisdom sparked a homecoming of my soul. Leyolah’s soothing voice lulled me into a journey of discovering the lost parts of myself. With each lesson, I released repressed fear, grief, shame, and the denial of my own feminine presence. My womb ached as my body intuitively discharged the emotional pain. I now experience full, juicy orgasms since completing Leyolah’s course. She gave my womb a voice, my heart a hug, and my body the power to express truth. Leyolah’s knowledge is much needed as our planet ascends to higher vibration. Thank you Leyolah for offering your gift to the world.’
– Shannon, USA
‘I could sit and listen to Leyolah teach all day long. Her experience and wisdom are radiated through her teaching in a powerful and healing way. I am in eternally grateful for the remembrance that has been ignited and there has been so much healing that unfolded because of the work. I have felt like a juicy, alive, erotic woman having a love affair with the Divine. These teachings helped me to deepen into my own personal daily practice and connecting with the others doing the course work in a private setting was heart opening, to say the least.’
– Brandi, Colorado, USA
"I am on a mission to inspire women to be fearless creators of their sacred work. I have found that the best way to re connect a woman back to her power and her passion is to lead her to the fountain of her sacred source of pleasure. To resurrect the power of Shakti within her womb, to teach her how to turn on her inner light and in that spark the her inner genius.
It is my greatest joy to support a women to shine brighter to unleash her from whatever is dimming down her light, keep her small, shut down and lead her to her source of power, where she can connect to her authentic voice, her deeper desires and create a life that she was born to live.
I am a long term teacher of embodied sacred feminine practice, an author, priestess of the Isis lineage, creator of Kundalini Dance. I am a keeper of the Temple of Isis a mystery school, dedicated to the empowerment of the sacred feminine. Receiving teachings from the Isis lineage is a journey back into your sensuality, to embody your deep feminine soul. I have found after years of working with women to reclaim their sensuality and activate their Kundalini Shakti, ( creative life force energy) that we stir the creative fires of our sacred desires. This year our temple is dedicating to supporting women to birth their sacred life’s work. As we evolve deeper layers of our purpose unfold. Lets uncover yours."
