Surrendering to Womb Wisdom

Right now on this planet, we need fully surrendered, fully embodied, sovereign women guided by their own bodies innate Wisdom.   This natural way of Being is our strength –  yet its been suppressed in most of us, so we have to re-learn how to surrender to ourselves.

This season of Autumn supports us to release the non-serving.  Autumn supports us to surrender those physical & emotional tendencies that would railroad our natural sensual magnificence and that would prevent us listening to our own sacred voice.

Our weekend retreat will help us get grounded and still so that we can connect more intimately with our bodies and emotions. A real opportunity to sensitive ourselves to our Qi bodies in order to access lingering pathogens & patterns that we’re ready to shed. This way we’ll create space for ‘over-wintering’ incubation of our new ways of Feeling & Being.

So many non-serving patterns are held in our pelvis, especially our wombs, vaginas and ovaries.  If we’re not intimately connected to our pelvis, we can hardly be expected to change things here, as we won’t be able to clearly hear the infinite Wisdom of our Womb.


In the taoist tradition, it’s the Metal Element that resonates with this season of Autumn – and the specific qualities of the Metal element, just as in nature, are about having the courage to release the old, to transform grief & loss and to step confidently into our own self-empowered, sovereign woman.

As we align with nature and embrace the courage to let go, the preciousness of our own true nature will start to reveal itself, just as when the trees start to drop their leaves, a flamboyant colourful display of their magnificence reveals itself.

You’ll be held in safe, sacred space as you tune into your body and become more intimate with yourself, creating spaciousness to allow Her to reveal Her suppressed secrets and truths!  

We’ll EMBODY the transformations using the women’s taoist practises of Qi Gong in nature, healing sounds, energy flow meditations, Qi Self Massage and the intentional ritual of a Jade Egg ceremony.



This time of year really supports us to embrace our feminine nature as we journey towards the deepest Yin season of the year.  Accessing the silence within us is our gateway to transforming our physical and emotional health.

The Jade Egg practise amplifies this & helps us to focus & listen here in the womb of our bodies.  It can be quite extraordinary the messages we receive when we set our intentions to commune wholeheartedly with our wombs.  The Jade Egg, as a powerful balancing healing crystal, can be programmed to absorb deeply engrained emotional patterning held in the cellular memory of our yoni’s and we’ll enhance this with healing sounds.

We’ll strengthen our pelvic floors (with toning & relaxing practise), which brings qi & blood to the area, offering us enhanced sensation and body confidence.

What women have experienced on previous Tao Treasures workshops:

THANK YOU so much for the amazing workshop  – everything was divinely perfect…… I have been in such a Yang pushing energy and really not aware of it. As I entered the workshop space you had so beautifully prepared yesterday I nearly cried as I felt my whole body melted… I found the meditations deeply profound and I really reconnected with my body. Really loved the way you combined Qi Gong with natural flowing movement, meridian stretches and your own experience and knowledge. I feel so Yin and receptive!

MARIAN creates a precious space of acceptance and calm. The practices she teaches are from ancient lineages, and she offers theses with lightness, flexibility and enormous warmth. I arrived with a small health issue and I felt able to surrender and trust that I could do as much or as little as was right for my body. I highly recommend Marian as a teacher

Nicola, Glastonbury

THANKS for a truly amazing weekend.  I really feel that a light has come on inside, for the first time in my life i am really beginning to honour and love my body – really honour it. I feel like my sensuality and sexuality are waking up again and I am beginning to feel whole….big shifts are going on – quite a remarkable feeling. It feels a very private journey about me – something I have not shared yet with my partner. The Jade Egg is quite incredible…….

Clare, London
