APRIL FOOL’S JOURNEY

REBIRTH RETREAT 

Lamorna, West Penwith, Cornwall,  

1st - 4th April 2022

“You enter the forest at the darkest point, where there is no path. Where there is a way or path, it is someone else’s path. You are not on your own path. If you follow someone else’s way, you are not going to realize your potential. You are the Hero of your own Story.

As you go the way of life, you will see a great chasm. Jump. It is not as wide as you think. The hero’s journey always begins with the call. 

One way or another, a guide must come to say, ‘Look, you’re in Sleepy Land. Wake. Come on a trip. There is a whole aspect of your consciousness, your being, that’s not been touched.

 So you’re at home here? Well, there’s not enough of you there.’ And so it starts.”

- Joseph Campbell

Joseph Campbell, author of The Hero of a Thousand Faces, Tarot Revelations & creator of The Hero’s Journey made Tarot mainstream without anyone knowing that is what he had done.

Let me show you what I mean...

The above pictures the correlation between The Hero's Journey by Joseph Campbell and The Fool’s Journey in the Tarot

The numerical order of The Fool's Journey (The Fool (0), The Magician (1) The High Priestess (2), The Empress (3) and so on...) fits the Hero's Journey Precisely - and these 3 steps of the journey is what we will undertake on this retreat

The Hero’s Journey and The Fool’s Journey is  the SAME journey. Campbell just swapped the word "Fool" for "Hero"... 

The powerful arc of the journey that is the becoming of the Hero in every good story, be it book or film is based on the soul evolutionary arch within the fool’s journey of the tarot and each and every one of us.

As Joseph says...

“Life is like arriving late for a movie, having to figure out what was going on without bothering everybody with a lot of questions, and then being unexpectedly called away before you find out how it ends.”

And if you are anything like me then you probably fall fast asleep whenever a movie plays - how ironic that my work is about waking people up! 

So, on that note...

Welcome to the rolling title of this is your life in the land of the fool!

WEST PENWITH… LAND OF THE ELFIN

Cornwall is an ancient land which makes it easy for us to connect with the divine power of archetypes (ancient - types) and this is exactly what we are going to do.

At Rosemerryn on April Fool’s Day we start a whole new journey of rebirth...

We have the Boleigh Fogou, as well as Michael and Mary Ley Lines running right through from nearby St Michael’s Mount. 

Plus, two circles a “stone’s” throw away (excuse the pun!) and many standing stones - that you can’t throw as they are made of big chunks of granite encrusted in quartz! 

The earth energies here are profound, you are connecting with the great earth goddess herself, and the process she facilitates for you is rebirth.

The Boleigh Fogou is so important that the BBC did a Time Team program on it

LIKE THE TAROT, THE FOGOU IS STEEPED IN HISTORY.  NO-ONE KNOWS EXACTLY HOW OR WHEN IT CAME ABOUT,  WHY OR WHAT IT WAS USED FOR. 

 

BUT IT’S MAGIC AND MYSTERY PULL YOU INTO A VORTEX AND LIKE THE TAROT I’VE WORKED WITH IT A LOT...

AS A BIRTHING JOURNEY THAT TRANSFORMS YOU 

 Are you ready to enter?

“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”

If you really, truly are then Let’s Begin!

FRIDAY: DAY 0 - THE FOOL

4 - 4:30pm: Arrival 

The transformation begins before you set foot in Cornwall. It starts here, on this very page when you say yes to the journey. Ramping up when you leave your life behind and start your journey to arrive this April Fool’s day. 

You’ll embody the divine fool archetype, which kicks right in when you enter Lamorna valley and your phone dies!

Although Rosemerryn isn’t easy to find without reception, we've never lost anyone yet! (I’ve ran retreats here for over a decade) Embrace the adventure! I will welcome you upon arrival with a smile at the strength of your “super-natural” power which has already kicked in, welcome to the place that makes sure it does :)

Over to you Joseph...

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.”

4:30pm: Activation Rebirth in the Boleigh Fogou

The magical acres of Rosemerryn are drenched in fairyland magic, magic carpets of bluebells, daffodils, snowdrops (and yes fairies - and no i’m not really a believer - apart from here!) Leylines and Megaliths supercharge the tiny peninsula of Penwith, but it's not until you set your feet on the land that you truly can believe the power that plugs into you here.

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive. The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure. We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”

Come into the fogou and break through your denial of the call to adventure. 

“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be." 

6 - 7:30pm: Dinner.

Will be home cooked and vegetarian let us know if you have dietary requirements, we are used to catering for vegan and gluten-free guests.

 

7:30pm: Log Fire Circle.

It’s April Fool’s Day! This evening will be full of childlike fun, games, wonder, exploration, dance and wonder as we celebrate the rebirth into our new lives.

You’ll even sleep with the fool tonight!

“We’re in a freefall into the future. We don’t know where we’re going. Things are changing so fast, and always when you’re going through a long tunnel, anxiety comes along. And all you have to do to transform your hell into a paradise is to turn your fall into a voluntary act. It’s a very interesting shift of perspective and that’s all it is… joyful participation in the sorrows and everything changes.”

 

 

9:00pm: Free Time.

There is a pub 15 minutes walk away that you can get to (if you have a torch!). If you have a car then you are spoilt for choice with places to visit, Mousehole and St Ives come highly recommended. Otherwise, there is Wi-Fi, and spiritual board games that people love to play, or maybe you just want to crash in your beautiful boudoir...

 “Dream is the personalized myth, myth the depersonalized dream; both myth and dream are symbolic in the same general way of the dynamic of the psyche. But in the dream the forms are quirked by the peculiar troubles of the dreamer, whereas in myth the problems and solutions sown are directly valid for all mankind”

 

SATURDAY: DAY 1 - THE MAGICIAN

 

8:30 - 9:30am: Breakfast.

Over breakfast we will have an array of delights for you, fresh green, orange or red juice of some kind! NutriBullets at your request, fresh fruit, yogurt, muesli, cereal or porridge, eggs and fabulously toasted crumpets from the Aga! Yum! As you share your experience with The Fool in your dreams with each other and get ready to activate the next archetype… The Magician!

 

9:30 - 10:00am - Free Time.

But before you do you’ll have some free time for you to connect to the great goddess found in the ancient earth of these grounds, don’t forget to pack your wellies!

 

10:00 - 10:45 am: The pen is mightier than the sword:

It’s time, to say a whole hearted yes to becoming The Magician of your life, we will start with a powerful kabbalistic meditation to activate the flow of magical divine energy coursing through your body, then find a magical spot to commune with your Magician and take dictation directly from him about the creation of your new life! How awesome is that?  

“Just as anyone who listens to the muse will hear, you can write out of your own intention or out of inspiration. There is such a thing. It comes up and talks. And those who have heard deeply the rhythms and hymns of the gods, can recite those hymns in such a way that the gods will be attracted.”

 

TEABREAK- 10:45

You will have to be very reserved this teabreak, as what The Magician revealed to you is for you only - for now, keep your mouth full of Laura’s divinely homemade lemon poppy cake, gluten free or not, and you’ll be just fine!

 

11:15 - 12:15 pm: Time to reveal the divine cup ...

In pairs you will: 

  1. Communicate what The Magician gave you through learning  how to storytell with Tarot, 
  2. Then tune into the divine bigger picture for each other using Tarot, 
  3. Finally then give each other the true gift of presence, listening and receiving and honouring each other's vision.

“When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves and our own self-preservation, we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness.”

 

12:15 - 12:30pm: Feedback Circle.

And such is the magic of learning in a group...

"And where we had thought to slay another we shall slay ourselves. Where we had thought to travel outwards we shall come to the centre of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone we shall be with all the world."

 

12:30 - 2pm: Lunch and free time.

We like to give you a long lunch so you can stretch your legs on one of the many beautiful walks, retire to your room to recharge, or simply enjoy each other with no agenda, after all this is a retreat, and yes we are learning but we are aware we want you to come away feeling filled up on every front, that means we take into consideration the important balance of work, rest and play, and mind, body and spirit.

 

2 pm: Activating your Magic Wand

Now  it’s time to connect to your wand through magic movement and catharsis, you’ll choose a track that perfectly encapsulates the Magician’s message for you  together we raise the energy and magic for your manifestation!

We are spoilt with a gorgeous big hall, rocking sound system and no neighbours! Get ready for some deep and powerful catharsis! All too often I have been on retreats that do not encompass getting up and moving and come away feeling more drained than recharged. Not here! 

“Following your bliss is not self-indulgent, but vital; your whole physical system knows that this is the way to be alive in this world and the way to give to the world the very best that you have to offer. There IS a track just waiting for each of us and once on it, doors will open that were not open before and would not open for anyone else.”

 

3:30 - 4pm - teabreak:

 

4 - 5pm  - Ground and Anchor Your Vision @ Boscowan Un Stone Circle.

The energy here  is something else. I lived in this land for several years and visited many of the megaliths and this one is by far my favourite.

The energy is high and totally grounding all at the same time. Maybe it's to do with it being an ancient sundial aligned to Stonehenge? I don’t know! I only know Boscowan Un recharges you like no other site I know. 

So let’s ground your vision in and then go and celebrate with Cornish mead! You’ll be ready to sleep with The Magician after that!

“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”

 

SUNDAY: DAY 2 - THE HIGH PRIESTESS 

 

8:30 - 9:30am: Breakfast.

We will have an array of delights prepared for you, fresh green, orange or red juice of some kind! Or NutriBullets of your request, fresh fruit, yoghurt, muesli, cereal or porridge, eggs and fabulously toasted crumpets from the Aga! Yum! 

 

9:30 - 10:00am: Free Time.

Time for you to connect to the great goddess found in the ancient earth of these grounds once again, before we start with the really exciting part!

 

10:00 - 11:00 am: Time to cross the threshold into the unknown world

Today’s the day we go deep connecting with The High Priestess by learning how to see each other's visions, we start with psychic art and psychometry, after which you will be well and truly ready for your...

TEABREAK- 11:00

 With some of Laura’s awesome gluten free and not gluten free poppy seed Lemon cake!

11:30: Channeled  Group Messages and Healing

Tiffany channels a group message and healing from her guides and then it’s time for you to go deeper, in pairs and channel a message for each other.

1:00 - 2:30 pm: Lunch and Free Time.

We like to give you a long lunch so you can stretch your legs on one of the many beautiful walks, retire to your room to recharge, or simply enjoy each other with no agenda, after all this is a retreat, and yes we are learning but we are aware we want you to come away feeling filled up on every front, that means we take into consideration the important balance of work, rest and play, and mind, body and spirit.

“The way to find out about happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you are really happy — not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy. This requires a little bit of self-analysis. What is it that makes you happy? Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what is called following your bliss.”

 2 pm: Release the shackles. 

Today we have gone deep, and it’s now time to release any final bits of armour as we embrace our own and each others vulnerability through a sharing movement circle where we find the heart centred strength in authenticity

5 - 5:30 pm: Reflection and closing circle:

Tonight, give thanks, reflect on the day and preparation for your final rebirth day tomorrow, with your Merry Maiden Empress Invocation.

“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”

6 pm onwards:

Dinner and FreeTime.

 

MONDAY: DAY 3 - THE EMPRESS

6:30 - 7:30 am: Sunrise Solstice Invocation

As the sun rises so do you, coming to the centre of yourself and your universe you declare what you are rebirthing into for the return of the sun, your soul, and the light with the group, stones and rising sun to witness your new you rebirthing into the world:

“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.”

7:30 - 8:30am: Breakfast.

Upon return we will have an array of delights prepared for you, fresh green, orange or red juice of some kind! Or NutriBullets of your request, fresh fruit, yoghurt  , muesli, cereal or porridge, eggs and fabulously toasted crumpets from the Aga! Yum!

 

8:30 - 9:30am: Closing Circle.

It’s time to  come together and honour ourselves, each other, the space and what happened with it, to mark what you want to leave behind, and what you want to take with you, and to bless yourself and each other on your ongoing journey.

9:30 -11:00 Time for you to pack, say your goodbyes to each other and the grounds - until, hopefully, next time...

 

 

11:00 am: Departure for Your Onward Journey.

Emotions run high at the end of such a deep time spent together, yet...

It’s not really the end though,  you have the choice...

 to continue on the path together through The Transformational Truth of Tarot journey and onwards, your bonds live on.

 

IS THIS RETREAT FOR YOU?

 

IF YOU LIKE THE SOUND OF BEING "LOCKED DOWN" IN A MAGICAL BOLT HOLE WITH WONDERFULLY WITCHY SOUL SISTERS BUBBLING UP SOME PRACTICAL MAGIC WITH TRANSFORMATIVE TAROT TO COOK UP A DIFFERENT WORLD FOR YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE THEN YUP!

 

These are powerful and unfathomable energies, all we know is..

  1. The elemental energies are so strong here you’ll feel so connected to your intuition you’ll wonder if it’s real!
  2. The energies deeply support connection and transformation, supporting you to go much further and deeper than you have possibly ever experienced before.
  3. You leave different, transformed, a page has turned, a new chapter opens and a new life begins. 
  4. You go back into the world reborn ready to embrace the mystery and wonder of knowing that your life will never be the same. 

And you'll want to come back and do it again and again!

In return I ask that you follow Don Miguel Ruiz Five Agreements:

THE FIRST AGREEMENTBE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD

Speak with integrity and say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

THE SECOND AGREEMENT – DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering

THE THIRD AGREEMENT DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS

Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

THE FOURTH AGREEMENT – ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST

Doing your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are tired as opposed to well-rested. Under any circumstance, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

THE FIFTH AGREEMENT BE SKEPTICAL, BUT LEARN TO LISTEN

Don’t believe yourself or anybody else unconditionally. Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear: Is it really the truth? Listen to the intent behind the words and you will understand the real message.

“By practicing the Five Agreements, what you are really doing is respecting everything in creation. You are respecting your dream; you are respecting everybody else’s dream. If you use these tools, your effort is really for everyone, because your joy, your happiness, your peace, and your heaven are contagious. When you are happy, the people around you are happy too, and it inspires them to change their own world.” – Don Miguel Ruiz

TESTIMONIALS

Angela Campbell UK

“The healing energy of the sea and stone circles is very powerful, I can’t find the words to describe it. I recently finished The Transformational Truth of Tarot and it was incredible to meet my soul sisters in the flesh and so special to give gratitude for what has been an incredible transformational time in my life.” 

Angela Campbell - UK

Susan Breakenbridge - Scotland

“Words cannot convey the emotions experienced! I felt at home right from the start, meeting my fellow sisters that I had been journeying with was profound, the strength of connection and depth was everywhere, I felt like I had come home, and I came away with so much more confidence inmyself and my abilities.” 

Susan Breakenbridge -Scotland

"Never before have I felt such profound healing from land. The energy of the house is so powerful I ended up manifesting exactly what I intended on the very first evening together. My only unfulfilled wish is that it could have been longer! “ 

Sophie LeFevre, Belgium.

“I know “reborn” can seem cliche but it’s a truly apt description in the transformation of shedding anger and baggage I have carried for years. Plus it didn’t leave me when I left. I’ve had a genuine life-changing profound sustainable transformation. I had to fly from the USA to be here and I'm so glad I did” 

Tim Toma - USA

Okay, So You Think and Feel This Might Just Be What You’ve Been Waiting For?

 

THEN LET'S GET ON TO THE REALLY EXCITING PART!

International Travel:

Many students come from other countries, some as far as Canada, the USA and Australia. Turning it into a trip of a lifetime, flying into London, seeing the sights of Stonehenge, Glastonbury and the fantastic Roman City of Bath on their way, if they rent a car, or just an overnight stop in Bath if they want to break up the six-hour journey into two.

If you prefer, catch a connecting flight from London to Newquay, that takes an hour instead of six, and then pick up a car, or the train for the last hour.

National Travel:

You can catch a coach or a train from many cities in Britain to Penzance - PZ is surprisingly well-connected (but you might need a good book to read on the way as it’s far far away!).

You can also drive down the M5 and A30 (or, from London, the M3, A303 and A30).

If you don’t like the thought of a long journey you can book a sleeper train and sleep through it - just be sure to book a berth! I’ve had people not realise that if they don’t do that, then they won’t get a cabin!

Or fly into Newquay airport to save 5 hours and then pick up a train or a car from there.

If you get the train, stay on til the last stop, Penzance - and then you’ll need to get a taxi for the last bit (15 minutes), even the train doesn’t go as far as we go! And only certain taxis are in the know too!

So, we will let you know which one to get, because once you enter the Lamorna valley all your reception goes, zilch signal, boom, it’s gone! No telephone box, no shops, only a pub with erratic opening times, and the February sea fog means we need to look after you!

Jess’s testimonial:

 

One last word from Sheila!
