Alchemy of Pleasure: A Dance Retreat for Women

  • Morning Glory Farm Mill Spring NC (map)

Pleasure is your birthright.

The path of Pleasure offers tremendous healing. Dance, ceremony, and sexual bliss are ancient ways of performing internal alchemy and union within ourselves. Electro-magnetics that occur as we enter ecstatic states cleanse us physically and energetically, elevating us to Higher States of Consciousness. Let us go deeply within to transform.

In the embrace of Grandmother Mountains, Sisters gather on the Land to heal through Pleasure. We fuse our intent to commit to a Lifetime of Ecstasy.

This weekend includes Qoya, Belly Dance, song, everyday pleasures, the Sex Magick of Isis, a fire ceremony and co-creative ritual.

Return to your body in Love. Remember yourself as Woman Alive.

Michelle Dionne has been teaching Sacred and Healing Dance for the past 17 years.  Her recent focus has been on the Roots of Belly Dance, resurrecting the ancient style as a sacred practice for birth, healing, connecting to the Divine Feminine and cultivating sisterhood.  She now incorporates the Sex Magic of Isis as a highly complimentary alchemical technique to belly dance ~ one enhances the other.  She also leads sacred circles for women and girls for communal healing, rites of passage preparation and re-creating tribe.  For more information on her work, please visit
