Is a space for dreaming. It is a Life Art project as well as a home. A space for shamanism & sexuality, choreography & consciousness, music & magic.


Here we celebrate a sustainably lifestyle while crafting the good life together. 


We play and pray our way on the island Møn in Denmark, with its re-vitalizing waters, open fields and white chalk cliffs reaching up to the sky.


Everything is possible.


Every day.


In this hall of dreams, in this land of love, we create, share and study medicines in various aspects available to us humans; Dancing & Dreaming, Plants & Poetry, Singing & Sleeping, Breathing & Birthing.


What we feel support our species on the path of Peace.


It is all about presence.


Essentially Eros & Earth – Evolving, Expressing, Expanding.


Birthing this space means embarking on a journey into the unknown in a symbiosis of contemporary and ancient cultural practices.


Join the dream!

Æg & Frø




 

Welcome!

Æg & Frø (Egg & Seed) is a gathering during Easter with the purpose of engaging in a Fertility Rite.

We are eight facilitators joining forces to hold space for germination, experimentation, co*labor*ation and celebration around the full moon and the spring Equinox of 2018.

The days are structured in three parts.

During the mornings we will be doing grounding work with our Earth Body such as preparing the soil for the seeds, lighting the fire, planting trees, collecting eggs or putting the potatoes.

During the afternoon we will awaken the sensitivity of our skin and play with the energetic landscape of our inner Nature guided by experienced explorers in the form of safe spaces, structured workshops and rituals.

During the evenings we will engage in collective and creative ceremonies re-wilding and celebrating the change of Season and the arrival of Spring.

The week will culminate in a festive Fertility Rite of our own making, drawing on our collective intentions, crafts, fantasies and desires.

All is done and held within a sacred prayer.

Mainly this week is about coming together in free expression of our interconnected and intimate relationship with the Earth. We come together to enjoy life, to reclaim, reinvent and remember our rituals. We gather to experience come*unity, to conceive an extended family and to be fertilized creatively, physically and spiritually as we eat and exercising our eggs, renew our fields and become touched as we bring our forces together into this new time.

Æg & Frø is about the Beauty of Being in the Body & the Love for Living on this Land.

It is a celebration and a ritualized conception of the sacred Union between Eros & Ecology, the Body & Beyond, the circle of life and a demonstration of how by taking care of Nature she takes care of us.
It is a week of radical honesty and self-responsibility, transformation through play & prayer, all inside a container of love with the intention to empower, inspire and serve each other as we serve the soil.
It is a week of Carnal Alchemy, Mythology made into Matter, Fertility and Resurrection, Music and Medicine, Sprouts and Spirits, Rebirthing around the vernal equinox and the awakening of life all around us.

The light is coming...
You are invited.

// WHO ARE WE:
____________

DANIEL HERNANDEZ
My name is Daniel Hernandez. I am an itinerant mischief-maker exploring the ritual roots of performance. The deeper I have dived into teaching, performing, and living in this rich territory, the more I have seen archaic/ shamanic clown and mask cosmologies become fascinating and colourful routes into individuation: containing a vast treasure-box of rituals, dance, liminal states, grotesque archetypes and clown-lore.

My performances, projects, ceremonies and workshops draw upon a wide variety of related traditions: These include Dance, Clown, Bouffon, Butoh, Contact Improvisation, Tao/Tantra, Vodou, Mask, Psychomagic, Art, Sacred Sexuality and Breathwork.

I am continually researching and developing my practice through trainings, readings, writings, ceremonies, experiments, and mistakes. My first love was music. I don’t claim to be a master of anything.

Snake Sisters


*** Strengthening our Voice, Sharing our Visions ***


August 2018 // Møn island, Denmark


*****


SNAKE SISTERS is a gathering where women come together in celebration of life.


We come together in gratitude to inspire, heal & honour each other and our Mother Earth. For the duration of 5 days, we will be gathering on the beautiful island Møn in Denmark to share, study, dream & pray. We will be manifesting our magic & medicines. Celebrating our skills, crafts & creative expressions. Weave together our shamanic voices, singing souls & wise silence.


Ancient wisdom tells us that we as humanity have entered a New Time, a time in which we as a species are going to re-birth the memory of our inter-connected relationship with all of life. Snake Sisters intend to unify our individual prayers, as we dream this New Time into Being and support each other in shedding the skin of our collective body.


This gathering will start on the day of the Total Solar Eclipse.


Across ages, countries & cultures, snakes are symbols connected to Sexual Power & Spiritual Wisdom. SNAKE SISTERS gathering wish to celebrate some of these voices & bring forth the ancient knowledge kept deep in the hearts, spirits, wombs & spines of women intuitively walking the path of unconditional love and light. These are women holding space for humanity to transition into this new time, while honouring and acknowledging the forces of the universe, consciously working with and supporting the endless cycles & forces of creation.


With this act of bringing women together from across the world, may this Union become Visible & our collective force shine even stronger! Haux. Amen. Oha.


*****


This gathering is structured as daily workshops, sacred rituals & ceremonies. The intention is that each woman who participates will be bringing something to share with the other sisters – to weave into the fabric of creation. Maybe your gift is to beautify the house with flowers, maybe your passion is to capture the gathering in a small video or maybe you simply wish to offer everyone a footbath. Use your imagination, feel your inner calling.


SNAKE SISTERS gathering will include some of the following activities: Poetry, Pottery & Plant Medicine. Miracles, Massage & Music. Shamanism, Singing, Sea swimming & Sleeping. Choreography, Conscious Sexuality & Co-Creation. Drawing, Dancing, Drumming & Dreaming. Healing, Happiness & Healthy Food. Fire, Fantasy, Fun & Fairy tales. All of Beauty, as well as the simple act of Being.


Welcome to this celebration of our shared existence on Earth in a Community of awakened Women.


*****


The aim of the 1st SNAKE SISTERS gathering; * * *Shedding the Skin for the New Way* * *, was to set a clear and strong foundation & plant a healthy seed for future gatherings.


With this 2nd edition, we wish to strengthen our voice & raise our prayer.


SNAKE SISTERS gathering is a contemporary embodiment of an ancient dream. It calls together medicine women, shamans, priestesses, alchemists, tantrikas, wisdom keepers, earth protectors, mothers & spiritual midwifes. It calls us together for us to grow, understand, share and expand the medicines we carry within. May the love between these women extend into harmony with all Beings & the entire Universe.
