Align your inner cycles with natures cycles. 

Prepare your body, mind & emotions for their most effective Autumn surrender. 

Feel guided into deep Winter incubation. 

Allow your resting life force energy to bubble up softly from your source to offer Winter-long sustenance & cellular rejuvenation. 

Allow your sensual animal body to express Herself gently thru uninhibited Qi Flow.

& make friends with your Yin nature as we journey together towards the most Yin time of the year.

Access the deep wells of your own embodied Wisdom


Sometimes the journey into Autumn & Winter can be challenging in a society that honours the Yang aspects of life way more than the Yin.  We are encouraged to continue, year round, in a busy schedule of activity which disconnects us from the cycles of nature. Ultimately this tends to keep us up in our Yang heads & uproot us from our Yin bodies.

This Autumn day retreat will help to reconnect you to your essential sensual nature.  You’ll be guided to drop into deep intimacy with your body.  You’ll nourish your essential life-force energy & practice guiding this potent force to where your Winter Woman needs Her most.

My intention is that this journey will help you avoid low energy vibes in the depths of a long Winter.  Instead you’ll be luxurating sensually in your nest & purring into your more aligned heart womb alchemy.

You’ll embody the energy medicine tools during the retreat day so that you can continue to hone the practises at home to assist your well-being over the Winter months & beyond.


It’ll be prinicipally the sacred tools of taoist Womens internal alchemy that will inspire us on this journey, eg:


  • Fine tune & sensitize your energy body with sexual vitality Qi Gong 
  • Hone your capacity to cultivate, nourish & circulate your essential life-force energy for optimum self-healing & pleasure (including opening & circulating Qi thru the Micro Cosmic Orbit)
  • Upgrade your body’s capacity to receive healing love
  • Balance your emotions via healing sounds – get to know the Spirits of your Yin organs & how they can facilitate emotional transformation.
  • Cultivate a new relationship with your breasts & enjoy taoist self breast massage for enhanced health & pleasure.
  • Breathe into & nourish the core of your inner Water Element, your Kidneys, Adrenals, Ovaries & Bones – the very batteries of your sexual energy & source of your ancestral Qi
  • Enjoy the self-love practise of Qi Self Massage, and learn specific acupressure points for release, peacefulness & pleasure.
  • Learn (or fine tune) the potent practise of Ovarian Breathing for deep nourishment, healing & blissful sensations
  • Enjoy some preparatory practises for the healing art of the Jade Egg.  A Jade Egg ceremony in early December is in incubation mode! Contact me if you’re interested in joining!


Steeped in the taoist women’s healing arts for nearly 20 years, Marian is passionate about women reclaiming their power through embodied energy medicine.  Weaving the Chinese Five Elements of nature into the practise, she believes, is a powerful ingredient to help us understand and connect to our inner natures.

Marian has an honours degree in Traditional Acupuncture and has been practising for nearly 20 years. She has qualified as a Womens Healing Love instructor & Qi Gong Instructor with the Universal Healing Tao tradition and is a graduate of the Tao Tantric Arts.

For over 10 years she has been holding space for women to feel safe in their bodies & to embrace the power & beauty of their own unique selves.


Angeline is the magical guardian of the beautiful St Mary’s Manor House, which is built on a sacred site over potent energy lines.  She’s benevolently opening up the shrine room for our retreat day.  A place herstorically used for the support and empowerment of women.  Aim to feel good 🙂



We won’t be using a Jade Egg for this journey on 11/11 but the practises we share will offer some preparation for your Jade Egg practise, and we may well schedule in a Jade Egg ceremony for later in the Autumn. if you are interested, I have a batch of high quality, medium sized, nephrite Jade Eggs for sale (including non-flavoured / non waxed dental floss).   Or if you have any questions around this sacred practise, then I am available on marian@taotreasures.com
