About the event
You are invited to join us for an intimate private women’s gathering to explore and experience the wonderful benefits of conscious feminine connection, womb care, and vaginal steaming!
Yoni Steaming is a beautiful and nourishing form of feminine womb care, traditionally practised in many cultures throughout the world. It offers us a unique lens into the raw and powerful realm of the female body and consciousness, allowing us the valuable opportunity to hold ceremony for ourselves and one another as we explore and connect with our own innate wisdom and Higher Knowing.
Each woman's experience is unique unto herself, and this offering has been lovingly crafted to help you energize and rejuvinate yourself from within, allowing you to fully integrate all aspects of your experiences. Your emotions and discomforts, as well as your elations and pleasure are all welcome as part of the process, as we discover the power in our authentic expression and vulnerability.
Our time together will begin with a short opening circle, discussion, and Q+A session highlighting the benefits, cautions, preparation, and everything else you need to know about vaginal or yoni steaming.
Next, we'll enjoy the experience of returning home to ourselves, learning the powerful and deeply grounding womb breath, connecting us with the Great Mother - Mama Gaia.
From this held space, we will begin the luxurious (and often pleasurable) steam process. We will be using the most basic of set-ups, spending our time sitting and steaming on the floor with gentle cleansing herbs and tools you'll likely have on hand at home, should you desire to recreate a similar steaming experience for yourself as part of your own self-care routine.
This simple set-up creates an environment that feels safe, easy, and accessible for us to tap into our more primal and wild selves, opening to receive the intuitive gifts and messages we hold within.
After the steam has concluded, we will enjoy a warming, heart opening tea and take some time for reflection, journaling, and sharing.
This is an intimate group gathering, limited to just 7 (in-person) participants.
Our Journey Will Include:
- Opening Circle, Discussion, and Q+A Session
- Guided Breathwork + Gentle Meditation
- All You Need to Enjoy a Relaxing Yoni Steam
- Warming, Heart Opening Tea
- Space for Personal Journaling, Reflection, and Sharing
- And So Much More!
What Will We Provide?
We'll supply (just about) everything you need to enjoy a relaxing evening of indulgent self-care, including a personal steaming bowl, gentle cleansing herbs, and more!
What Should You Bring?
- a cushion, backjack, or other form of floor support to use while we're in circle, optional
(If you are not able to sit on the floor, please let us know so we may accomodate you.)
- a small pillow for your head to use as you steam (think Child's Pose), also optional
- a blanket or sheet for added warmth and to cover up with
- a journal and pen for reflection
- water or other form of nourishing hydration
- cuddly socks
During the steam, you may find it convenient to wear a long dress or skirt to cover yourself. Alternatively, you may use a blanket or sheet to wrap around your bottomless form - our preferred method!
All are encouraged to wear something warm and cozy for the trip home, and please plan to rest and relax bundled up for the rest of the evening.
For those joining us virtually, you'll also need:
- a towel
- a heat-safe bowl or pot
- boiling water
- steaming herbs (as noted below)
We suggest one or more of the following herbs in any combination, up to 3 tablespoons: chamomile, rose, mint, citrus peel. If you do not have any herbs at all on hand, you may also steam with plain water.
Is Vaginal Steaming for Me?
Steaming is a beautiful, safe, and beneficial self-care practice for most women. However, there are times when it is not safe to steam.
It is not safe for you to steam if...
- you are actively menstruating or spotting, or have had any bleeding or spotting within the last 24
- you are pregnant
- you are past ovulation and trying to conceive
- or if you have had any spontaneous bleeding between cycles within the last three months
Please Note: Vaginal steaming is a powerful and effective healing and clearing practice, especially when done over the course of several months. It may negate oral and implant birth control, as well as heal tubal ligation and coagulation, and over time can also reverse the effects of uterine ablation.
