"The greatest gift you can give to those you love, is to become fully liberated, connected to self, sisters and tribe."

Dear Sister,

Are you ready to open your heart and experience a deep level of connection with yourself and other amazing women? Do you long for more intimacy and deeper connection in your life and and your relationships? If so, join us at the Healing in Tribe Women's Retreat!

In this gathering, we will guide you through explorations to embrace your full humanity and to claim your authentic expression. You will learn about cultivating meaningful relationships with yourself and others from a place of inner power.

We'll go deeper into exploring your own sensuality and how to use it as a tool for self-expression. Using the power of Heart iQ practices, you will gain understanding of how to cultivate deep intimacy in all aspects of your life. We know that when women feel connected to their body and their expression, they can move with greater ease in the world.

On this journey, you'll also experience the joys of sisterhood. Through being in circle together, we provide opportunities for connection with like-hearted women, healing the fractures of sisterhood and coming home to our collective essence, together.

An exciting aspect of this event is that as the week progresses, we'll slowly integrate our circles with the men who are also participating in their own group sessions with Christian. Witnessing the gradual bonding and ultimate unity of our two fields, coming together as one, is a truly special experience.

This retreat is an invitation for you to liberate yourself from the pressures of society and open your heart to experience a deeper level of connection with other like-minded women. Join us at the Healing in Tribe Women’s Retreat as we create a safe space where all are welcomed without judgement or fear. We hope to see you there!


Yours In Sisterhood,
Rachel, Paulina and Sylvie

Your Retreat Experience

The focus of the Heart iQ circle journey we will embark on is to get you into your body while simultaneously tapping into a higher state of consciousness by leveraging the power of the amplified field, generated by everyone attending.

The amplified space we co-create in mindful awareness and embodied presence is a brave space for those ready to connect more deeply to the mysterious potential of healing that is possible in emergent group fields.

This space is mostly unknown, we have no idea what will happen between us. And that’s exactly the place where we want to hang out… in this liminal space anything is possible as we set and hold a remarkably potent container where literally anything can happen.

We will travel through lifetimesother worlds and realities, all in a ritualized space perfectly designed for the emergence of what wants to happen through and between us. It is a transformational multi-dimensional experience unlike any circle you have sat in before.

The work that we do is experiential and on one hand challenging and on another, deeply relaxing and nourishing. This is about getting in your body and connecting to who you really are and bringing forth your authentic expression.

We're here not to play around on the surface, but get to the depths of who you are, what your life is about and what's holding you back from your full expression and leadership. Be prepared to go on a journey of personal exploration, shedding what's ready to dissolve and receive a sacred imprint of what it means to be a conscious, heart connected and sexually vibrant woman.

A big part of the work is around releasing core stress in the nervous system by practicing opening our hearts to other women. When we as sisters can receive each other fully and let ourselves drop into the collective amplified field of sisterhood, something magical happens that simultaneously opens the heart and heals old wounds.

A big part of the retreat is to experience a 'homecoming' and to remember the nourishing and supportive feeling of being part of a tribe of sisters that you can trust and can feel you in ways you may not even be able to feel yourself. You may not realise it yet, but having sisterhood in your life is not just a luxury, but an essential ingredient for successfully navigating your life and relationships.

Connected to this idea of sisterhood is an area that we call 'Tribal Regulation'. This is where a tribe of sisters can support you in regulating your nervous system and come to rest. As a woman, it's likely that you carry stress and old pain in your nervous system as you attempt to meet life alone. In order to open fully, it will be critical to reconnect to other women - as there's something women can provide you that you won't be able to find anywhere else.

What Will You Receive?


RELEASE SHAME AND INADEQUACY and claim your healthy expression of power in the world.


RE-CONNECT WITH THE POWER OF YOUR FEELING BODY to move through the suppression many women carry in their emotions due to insecurity and fear from childhood experiences.


RELEASE CORE STRESS and surrender into divine relaxation.


CONNECTION TO YOUR OWN SPIRITUAL NATURE to come into direct contact with your inner wisdom and guidance.


CONNECTION WITH YOUR LIFE'S MISSION AND PURPOSE to remember why you are really here, and what gifts you bring to the world.


DEEPEN YOUR SEXUAL PRACTICE so that you can open with integrity and depth.


BUILDING HEALTHY WOMEN-TO-WOMEN RELATIONSHIPS that lead to growth, connection and real authenticity. Experience sisterhood.

What Happens at Healing in Tribe?

Each retreat is unique and emergent in nature. This means we co-create our experience together. That said, there are some core ingredients that you'll receive. Here are a few...

Heart iQ Circles & Mat Work

You'll spend time in sister circles, facilitated by Sylvie, Paulina and Rachel as well as mixed circles with men & women facilitated by Christian, where you will receive new imprints and experience the magic of Heart iQ.

Embodied Connection

Throughout the week, you'll be given multiple opportunities to connect to yourself and others through movement, sound, breath and touch.

Intimacy Practices

We want you to leave with practical take-home practices & tools to apply to your life & relationships. 

Tribal Regulation

Many of us carry a subtle core stress, like background static, in our nervous systems and we need to learn how to drop in and relax so that deeper healing can take place.

Temple Spaces & Ceremony

During the week we will occasionally gather in the evenings to experience rituals and ceremonies to heal and honour the tribal union.

Practice with Men

During the week we will participate in special sessions where we practice and connect with the men.

A Special Note About Men in the Space

During Healing in Tribe, you will learn practices to become more open, connected and sexually alive.

Simultaneously, there men on a journey in a different part of New Eden facilitated by Christian Pankhurst and his team.

During the retreat, the groups come together for mixed circle, practice and discovery. This is a perfect opportunity to learn to show up fully as yourself, to explore your radiance and feel deeply met by the whole tribe.

How Does it Work? 

Heart iQ Circle Work is what is called a "Transformational Technology". 

It's not about fixing your dysfunction or about focusing on your problems. 

It's an upgrade. 

What if what you think is broken and problematic, is actually you not having an 'imprint' of a healthy way of being? 

What if you were never given the imprint of what it means to be a woman, a lover, a mother, an elder, or a leader?

What if you were never given a model of what life COULD be? What if, instead of being blessed with healthy imprints of what you can be, you were given a limited, conditioned and restricted version of what's truly possible?

Heart iQ is the transformational technology that offers you DIRECT, in-the-body imprints of upgraded ways of being, without needing to focus on your past or on your issues. 

Heart iQ Circle provides a roadmap to experience what we call, "The New Normal"

Watch this video (filmed at a previous Accelerated Awakening retreat) to discover more about Heart iQ Circle and the Sacred Imprinting work we do, and why being in a group, working with the amplified field, provides access to upgraded ways of being that are impossible to access on your own or 1-2-1.

Meet Christian

Facilitator of the Mixed Men & Women Circle Sessions

Christian Pankhurst is a world leading expert in group dynamics, conscious communication, and the art of circle facilitation. Christian is a master conductor of the collective wisdom that emerges when resonant hearts come together, and his piercing clarity lovingly cuts through bullshit while he holds a space of unconditional love for what wants to emerge in the now.

Christian teaches how to tap into the power of the collective wisdom or 'field' so facilitators learn how to heal themselves and others simultaneously through a process that is embodied and joyful rather than heady and focused on solving problems. 

Christian's unique capacity to translate  complex group dynamics into simple, clear and practical insights is the reason why so many seek him out to get trained in the art of small and large group facilitation.

Christian started facilitating groups in 2002 after graduating as a Chiropractor from the AECC in the U.K. His speciality is using a group’s wisdom and energy to open up gateways of transformation that are simply not available in an individual or one-on-one practice. 

In 2008, Christian entered and won the Britain's Next Top Coach Competition, receiving 52% of the votes from over 90 countries around the world. He is the best-selling author of Insights To Intimacy - Why Relationships Fail and How To Make Them Work, and is the co-founder of New Eden, a centre for those wishing to grow, co-create and awaken together in community.

Where Do We Gather?

The Healing in Tribe Retreat takes place at New Eden, our own dedicated venue located in the Heart of Friesland, Netherlands, surrounded by 50 acres of beautiful forest and nature. It is completely private and is gloriously free from the noise and distractions of modern life.


Staying at New Eden is like stepping into a different reality of wonder and magic. We go to great lengths to create a strong and loving container for you to stretch into the best version of yourself while creating a culture of acceptance, authenticity, depth of practice, mastery and heart-centered living. This is a space where you can thrive!

Imagine for a moment, visiting a place out of time, a place where time stands still. A lush oasis and sanctuary for your soul, where you get to be seen and felt in all your glory. A place where you get to show up exactly as you are. A place where you get to be the real you.

New Eden is that place. New Eden is a beautiful, nourishing, healing space where you get to truly drop into your authentic self, rest and receive. Filled up from the inside, you get to shine your light into the world and expand your range beyond what you previously thought possible.

New Eden is a place that has the feeling of coming home. It’s a place where you can lean into the edges of your self-expression. Finding a freedom you’ve never known. Deepening in your capacity to open. Exploring the range of your pleasure and staying present as you journey forwards with consciousness.

New Eden is a place where people arrive as strangers and leave as lifelong friends. Experiential and purposefully curated with connection in mind, the Healing in Tribe Women's Retreat at New Eden will leave you re-connected to yourself, others and the world.
