Women's Nude Body Painting Retreat
Saturday, September 23
11am - 8pm | Oxford MA
Calling in women learning radical self-love and true freedom. We call forth she who craves to be seen exactly as she is. She who loves to create and experience beauty. We invite in the curious artists, wild witches, earth creatures, and open-hearted priestesses. We invite you in with your excitement, hesitation, joy, anxieties, wonder, and all else that pulses through you in choosing to join us. This is a radical and revolutionary creative space. Come as you are, with all you are.
Join us for our next nude body painting experience! A safe, creative, ritual space to explore nudity, artistry, connect with community, and be witnessed in your fullness. This is a true sensory immersion -- all 6 senses will have a chance to be explored throughout the day. We have fun and we go deep. The Nude Body Painting is a balancing space to share in collaborative art + community connection while having the space held in a way that you can also explore your personal internal process.

10:45 - 11am : As you arrive you are welcome into the temple space with a shamanic energy cleanse offered by Chantelle. One by one each woman sits by the alter and receives an individualized energy healing practice supported by smoke cleansing, gentle touch, and sound. Mutual consent is upheld in this practice.
11:30am : Once everyone has been cleansed we open circle. Opening circle includes space to share fears, excitements, and intentions. We go over consent and safety guidelines, the schedule, and more. We begin the day with a gorgeous ~ surprise ~ collaborative art activities, group song, and more.
12:30pm : Guided nude body painting. During this time Chantelle is offering more energy healing and therapeutic conversation for those needing support with grounding, comfort, or anything else that needs tending in your emotional body.
2:30pm : Flower alter creation + body gazing. Sharing stories, circling, + singing song together. Intuitive flow & art time.
3:30pm : Photoshoot guided by Coco. You receive solo shots and we do group shots on polaroid and on Chantelle's phone. You will get to take home 3 solo shots and 2 - 5 group shots of your choice. All non-polaroid photos are taken on Chantelle's phone. No other phones are allowed in the space.
4:30pm : Reflection time. Winding down. Body cleaning. Dinner is served.
5:30pm : Special guest shares their gift. At every retreat we invite a community member to hold space for an hour sharing their gift. In the past we had a DJ'd ecstatic dance, a song writing workshop, sound healing session, and a guided song circle. This will likely be musical in nature but could be anything.
6:30pm : Closing circle. Integrating the day, final words / prayers.
8pm : You go home with a new sense of love for the self, connection to others, and comfort in your body.

The space we share can be sensual.. it is never sexual. The sensual, deep, creative woman you are is fully welcome.
"Nude body painting" can mean as much clothes off as you desire. Nudity is welcome.. underwear on is welcome.. tanktop and shorts is welcome.. YOUR comfort is the priority.
It is normal to experience some fear, anxiety, wonder, or discomfort before joining and during this experience. The retreat is so not how our culture and society has taught us to be together! What a brave edge to explore together! Your worries or excitements are fully welcome. Come as you are.
