Alchemy For Ascension:
From Death To Rebirth
24th-28th September 2020
After the overwhelming success of our previous ‘Alchemy For Ascension' retreats (click here to read retreat testimonials), we are soul happy to share the next retreat in this series...
Join The Ascension Seed for an alchemical deep healing four-night journey where we will lovingly dive into the energy of death and rebirth to embrace and discover new layers of their alchemical potential, creating transformation, soul healing and spiritual alignment from within. This retreat is intended to assist you in catalysing your unique path so you may align with your highest timeline and take a quantum leap towards embodying your soul's essence.
Over four days we will work with a wide variety of healing and awakening practices, some ancient and others channeled by us for the participants of this retreat. In a safe and lovingly held space with an intimate group of souls we will alchemise with meditation, sacred sound, silence, movement, ritual, song, nature connection & more to support our processes. Journey with us to enter into our personal and collective unconscious with intention to release density and limiting aspects of ‘self’, allowing us to attune to our soul’s true frequency, activating more of our radiant light and limitless potential. We are calling in souls who are ready to unlock a deeper layer of healing and release blockages so they can claim and embody their sovereign soul power. This retreat is intended to accelerate your timeline of self-healing and alignment with your soul’s unique purpose.

DEATH & REBIRTH
DEATH & REBIRTH
Life moves in cycles. Whether we’re conscious of it or not, we are in a constant cyclical process of death and rebirth. Our cells are regenerating, our frequency is changing and fluctuating, old versions of 'self' are dying, and new versions of 'self' are being born. Change is the only constant.
In this existence, we are continuously emerging through the transformational portals of death and rebirth as our individual and collective awareness expands.
When we embrace the process of rejuvenation, healing and expansion that we are naturally inclined towards as cells in the cosmic body, we are able to release resistance and open our eyes to the abundance of opportunities for growth available to us in every moment. This way we can create and re-create ourselves with every breath, thought and action, living as conscious creators alchemising our way through life as spirit in form.
In our individual and collective unconscious resides a lot of fear regarding the idea of death, because we see death as something which happens at the end of life, terminating our existence. In truth, we are a part of the infinite - we never really 'die', rather our energy transforms. Energy is always changing state, and as something 'dies', the energy is always born again.
Both death and rebirth are processes of continuously allowing the essence of who you really are to be more deeply activated within your being. As you shed conditioned layers, old versions of you 'die', allowing a more aligned version of 'Self' to be born within you.
Many willingly call in the energy of rebirth and transformation without innerstanding that there can be no rebirth without death. Just as your 'self' dies many times in your life, every day is an opportunity to be reborn so we can more deeply embody our essence. In this sense, dying and being born again are things we experience every time we change and grow.
There is no time but the present to embrace your inner work, raise your frequency and create a life where you are consciously directing your process of elevation. We each have our own unique sacred purpose. Only you can take the steps which enable you to embody the purest expression of your soul, so you may radiate the love that you are at your core.
To align with your highest ascension timeline and embody your soul's true essence for the highest good of all, you must lovingly address and release that which doesn't resonate with who you are beneath your conditioning.
Each of us has our own set of conditioned layers to transcend in order for our soul essence to fully radiate from our being. Similarly, we each have the power within to shed our own layers, learn our soul lessons and do the work to lovingly come into alignment with who we really are. The conditioned density and weight we carry and identify with is not what defines us, but it is ours to lovingly transmute.
By choosing to dance with death, we can allow ourselves to be reborn into the version of our 'Self' that our highest aspect is calling us to become.
As we allow things in our life to die - whether that's old patterns, behaviours, beliefs, traumas, relationships, environments, material items or anything else that is no longer aligned for us - we create space to move towards and allow into our reality feelings, experiences, frequencies, people and states of being which are resonant with the higher frequency expression of ‘Self’ that is being born from within us.
Are you are ready to embrace your inner alchemist by diving into your darkness and dying to your ‘self’, thereby activating your inner light and sovereign power, allowing a more aligned and embodied version of you to be born?
To ascend and evolve in a way that is integrated and whole as opposed to fragmented, we must own, acknowledge, heal and love our light and darkness equally. This retreat is a space for you to embrace and balance both polarities within yourself, as both your light and shadow are valid, worthy, wise and purposed to support your expansion process.
We are calling in souls ready to join us to do the sacred and important work of healing in a loving container designed to catalyse your process and support you in making quantum shifts in your life.
If you feel called to join us, we would be honoured to go on this journey with you. Spaces for this intimate journey are limited. Reserve yours by paying your deposit below.

The retreat will take place in Rusper Court Manor, a beautiful traditional manor house surrounded by luscious countryside. The manor existed before the Doomsday book (1086), has beautiful traditional features with modern facilities. The surrounding countryside area is tranquil and private. The house has woods nearby as well as picturesque grounds with a lake and lots of space to walk freely to integrate new energy.
You can get to Rusper on one train from London Bridge to Ifield station, where you can get a 10 minute taxi to the manor. Some lifts from the station will also be available on the 4th June. Driving from London takes around 1 hour in good traffic. See below for photos of the house and grounds.

We request that you hand your phones in on the day of arrival to create an EMF free space, as well as getting rid of distractions to allow radical presence and deep introspection. This will make a BIG difference to your process. If you need to make any urgent calls during the retreat (to kids or sick family members for example) you can have your phone back for this purpose, returning it afterwards. Emergency contacts will be provided.
READING AND MUSIC
In order for you to be fully present with your inner world, we also request you do not consume any external stimulus and information I.e. listening to music, reading books. We also recommend keeping writing to a minimum so as to avoid indulging the mind's commentary of your experience, allowing you to simply BE with your experience.
We will be observing a policy of noble silence at specific times during the 4 days. This means that during breaks, and in your rooms, you are required not to speak to fellow participants. Silence significantly adds to the healing process, cementing us in our own experience so we can be truly present with what is arising within us. Silence also prevents us from distracting ourselves or others from the work.
There will be specific opportunities for group sharing during silent days, and on the final day we be able to share and connect with each other. There will also be opportunities to meet and talk on the 4th June before the official retreat opening ceremony on the morning of 5th June.
If you find you are in need of extra support during the retreat, Reuben and Nyasha will be available at some points to speak with you and talk through what is arising. We ask that all participants honour the deep-healing container we wish to create by respecting the silence.
During the retreat we will be eating a plant-based diet (no animal products). Please let us know if you have any specific allergies so we can factor this in to meal planning with the chef. We will have fruits and tea available during the breaks, but please feel free to bring your own snacks in addition if you would like to.
SMOKING & INTOXICANTS
Smoking cigarettes, marijuana and taking any mind-altering substances is prohibited during the retreat to create a clean environment free of coping mechanisms and external distractions. Please do not join us if you are unable to respect this policy. If you want to come but are currently a smoker, you can use this retreat as an opportunity to stop or take a break.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about our retreat. We look forward to connecting with all the souls who are aligned to join us on this journey.
With love and gratitude,
The Ascension Seed
