Feminine embodiment.


In the Women’s temple we dive deeply into practices that open us to the inherent source of vast wisdom within. We connect with the bliss of devotion and with the truth in our hearts, utterly wild and free. We align with the dignity and grace of the feminine warrior, and we touch infinite compassion, silence and beauty beyond measure.


That which we are longing for is who we already are.


This insight is the basis for our spiritual exploration in the Women’s Temple Group. Thus our practice is not towards a goal of attainment in the future; it is a process of melting ~ of unraveling the wisdom and beauty already inherent in each woman. And there is no more powerful place to do that than in a circle of conscious women.

Instead of enforcing the status quo by focusing on our problems and personal shortcomings, the Women’s Temple group practices connect us with truth beyond our fears and limited self images.

We all contribute in co-creating a field of Shakti, which again provides each one of us with a powerful transmission of grace and awakening. It holds us as we dive deeper into the pure beauty of who we are.


Timeless wisdom.


This is a highly experiential path: a lot of the practices are interactive and include movement and also respectful touch. The feminine touch has an inviting quality to it that softens, opens, and invites deeper presence into our bodies. All the numb and cold places, the unmet corners of our body can be visited with gentle awareness as we cultivate a greater capacity to allow feelings as energy to flow through our bodies.

The Women’s Temple is not a therapy or a support group. It is a space where we come to mirror, celebrate and empower each other.


A space where we can drop our masks and let the beauty of our authentic face be seen in all its glory and pain and passion and vulnerability.


Transparent leadership.


In this training, you will learn all the how-to’s of facilitating an ongoing Women’s Temple group. You will gain insights into the background theory of women’s group dynamics as well as have the opportunity to practice feminine leadership and to receive constructive feedback.


The principles of feminine leadership can be applied to all areas of life, 


so even if you are not sure if you want to lead a group, this will be a valuable experience for you. Chameli Ardagh (founder Awakening Women Institute) describes it as a path of your heart’s desires, of love and co-creation. You will have an in-depth experience of the groundbreaking Awakening Women approach and of the benefits of being part of a Women’s Temple group.

To be certain that this is the right training for you, please make sure that you have some experience with the Awakening Women practices before you attend.

The learning process is a carefully balanced mix of theory and experiential transformation. Many of the practices are dynamic and interactive (e.g dance, dyads, respectful touch), but we will also spend time in silence and inner contemplation.

You will leave the training with a plan for creating your own group, or if you already are part of one, you will bring back ideas of how you can deepen your practice together. It is even wonderful to come as a group, as the training will give you a common ground of understanding for what you will create together.

Even if you are not sure if you want to lead a group, this will be a valuable experience of the Awakening Women approach and of the awakening and transformation that happens in the Shakti circle.

Surrounded by the majestic beauty of the Spanish Pyrenes, you will gather an abundance of tools and insights into what feminine leadership is while reconnecting with the softness and radiant glow of your whole body and being.

The training is facilitated by SimoneRita Egger, AWI Temple Training Teacher, and some sessions will be led by members of the Temple Training Team.

To me, the time with SimoneRita and Dragana was a deep dive into the potential of connected womanhood. The two of them embody leadership in deep devotion, in trust and ease, without pressure or strain. It was wonderful to experience over the course of the week, how one woman after another went through insecurities or issues and stepped into her power as leader of the circle. And it was apparent how each woman showed up with her special gifts and strengths, her very own voice and her very own medicine. I have experienced on a somatic level – not just as something understood with the mind – that we as women can be the most powerful when we are not making an effort and step from doing into being. And don’t even try to be in a certain way, but really letting go into being ourselves. Having the circle of women reflect to me, who I am, what I have to give and on deeply on a cellular level knowing that I belong is the greatest empowerment I can imagine.

You created a space of gentleness and tenderness that was unique. It was soft, allowing, opening, evolutionary. The atmosphere of a Temple, whatever was on the schedule. I had such beautiful time for a couple of days that affected me very much on a deeper level. A blessing to be in this space of the feminine and divine. In that space I understood the depth and the ancient wisdom of the circle, the force, that direct the temple group.

You made me feel capable, gave me a lot of knowledge about how to manage a group, understanding and inspiration. I got an opportunity to listen to my call for living my life the feminine way. The diploma and the great inspiration from this training helps me to live my longing, makes me confident to create a temple group in my way. And I’m very proud of being a Temple Mama!

SimoneRita is very rooted in her commitment and she teaches from her heart. She’s very clear, inspirational, explains so I understand with the mind and on a deeper energetic level in the same time. Appreciate the different examples she gave, that she was personal about her journey and experiences. There was a well designed mix of practicing, teachings and meditation/chanting.
The music and singing with Dragana was so beautiful and a fundamental part of the atmosphere. The chanting was an anchor during the days.

This training is going to change my life and impact me to make the next steps on my path. To live my life close to the heart, to be true to myself and to stand up for the Divine.
I’m in deep gratitude to you.

I would like to start by sharing that it is difficult for me to put into words what I’ve experienced at the The Awakening Women’s Temple group. And I believe the reason why is because it happened in another realm and speaks the language of the heart.

I can say that it changed me in ways I was not expecting. It connected me with something bigger, with something deeper inside myself and awoke me for a different way of living – more aware, loving, compassionate and in touch with my true essence.

Simone Rita and Dragana are two amazing women who truly embody the divine feminine. They’ve lead the retreat with an incredible enthusiasm, strength, beauty, love, compassion and integrity. They totally „walk their talk“ and are both inspiring and beautiful.

I definitely feel compelled to start a Temple group and create the space for women to gather and celebrate the blessing of being a woman.

Deeply grateful for this retreat.

I feel blessed that I was in the Women Tempel Training in Barcelona.

What I loved:
– the way the training was build up: the variation of theory, practices, dance, meditation, leading a temple yourself, …
– the way we were guided with trust and empowerment
– the non-judgement way we could be in the circle and practice with leading a Women’s temple
– the atmosphere in the group of sisters, the team, the participants, the cooking team ….
– the way we were gently guided into a deep experience, connecting with the Divine Feminine, in balance with the Divine Masculine
– the balance between flowing and structure and how we dan apply these both qualities in our own Temple Leading
– the way questions were answered …. answering without falling into discussions or chitchatting, answers that reach deeper than the mind
– the practices
– follow-up after the training (documents sending, playlist with music, guidelines, fb-page, Temple mamas, ….)

My experience there had been very rich, deep and allowed me to embody what truly a women`s temple is all about. The venue was so beautiful with lovely and welcoming people and delightful food. The teachings were delivered with such focus and clarity, and supported so well with the practices. It almost didn’t feel like learning but living the wisdom. I liked the way we were supported with our own temple practice as Temple Mamas. To be given that opportunity to practice within endless support, acceptance and love truly encouraged me to be myself, to listen to my instincts and to set up my temple in the town I live. I truly feel a whole circle of wonderful women in my backspace where ever I am and whatever I do. This feels very special and thank you for creating such a safe and open space for us all to be part of this Sisterhood.

I enjoyed the training so much. I discovered that no matter what language you speak, if you are present and speak with an open heart, everyone can feel the words…the meaning…the practice. The tools I have learned are not only helpful for leading a temple, they are also amazing support (pillars) for diving deeper into yourself and of becoming more aware of who you truly are. This lovely, gorgeous training helped me to share more of my gifts with the world. Each practice feels like a deep breath. You become more centered and aware. It is like a drop of water expanding when touching and diving into the surface.

These days were absolutely beautiful. The Temple space we created was deeply nourishing and supportive, and I received so much inspiration for my own leadership practice in my Temple group. The most valuable gift was how this retreat helped me reconnect with my deeper purpose and supported me to surrender to that greater cause.
