Beautiful Woman

Do you find yourself caring a lot for others but along the way you’ve stopped caring for yourself? 

 

Are you in need of some quiet time in a peaceful environment to discover what fills your cup, inside out?

 

Or maybe you know what fills your cup, but you feel guilty taking time for you when you have your loved ones to care for and there’s just so much to do?  

 

Would you like to establish a more loving relationship with yourself and your female body and meet your sensual and erotic muse?

 

Or would you like to gift yourself a nurturing couple of days after a stressful time because you know that if ‘mama ain’t happy nobody's happy?’

 

Sister, are you ready to fall in love with yourself?

What Is HERspace?

HERspace is a 4 day transformational retreat, set on the beautiful Island of Koh Samui, Thailand, offering you a journey to support your greatest expression as a woman.

 

It’s a place to explore, expand and truly inhabit yourself, where you feel held, connected, supported, seen and heard while softening into your true essence.

 

We invite you to let go of your to-do-list and goals and instead take off your shoes, feel the earth underneath you and melt with us into the stream of sensual and pleasurable delights.

 

To come and care for yourself and tap into the juicy potential that arises when women learn to support themselves and each other. 


Our Intention For You

It is our intention for you to leave this retreat with your cup overflowing, carrying with you a new-found appreciation for your female body, more confident in your sensual and erotic self and as you move forward, know how to take care of yourself in a way that really feeds you.


How Will You Benefit From Joining HERspace?

In a circle of women whose intention it is to honour the goodness and wisdom in one another you will:

  • Get to know your female body better and gain a new appreciation for it,
  • Discover what brings you joy and pleasure from the inside out,
  • Enhance your capacity to receive as much as you give in life,

  • Leave this retreat with skills that will support you in living a more connected and embodied life.

Together we will support, encourage and heal in acceptance and awe of all our faces and facets.  We will open up towards a greater authenticity and joy in our lives. This is an invitation for us to enjoy deeply connecting with each other, in our feminine essence. 


Who is HERspace for?

This is an invitation to women of all horizons, ages and backgrounds to reconnect with their true self and feminine sexual potential and to co-create a new paradigm of living with the support of each other.

Why HERspace Now?

Hi, I am Corinne, and I’m an experienced and devoted Women’s Wellbeing & Empowerment Coach, Menstrual Cycle Educator, Doula and Feminine Embodiment Practitioner.

 

More than a decade ago while I was still working in the event management and touring industry, I suffered from burnout. At first this experience left me shattered, but eventually, it provided me with the fuel to explore more wholesome ways of how to navigate this human life.

 

On this quest, I soon learned that I had to stop looking for answers outside of myself and instead go within. There I reconnected with my female body, my feminine essence and the love, truth and wisdom that I carry within my heart. 

 

Since then, it’s become my mission to help other women find their way back to a joyful, meaningful and pleasurable life.


Having become largely disembodied as a society over the last thousands of years by glorifying spirit, mind and transcendence over body, feelings and this earthly life, humans too often have come to seek answers, contentment and wisdom outside of themselves.

 

Throughout all times, women have always been more associated with the body then spirit because of their capability to give and sustain new life – same as mama nature supports us, her human children.

 

Thus, whenever body has been deemed less worthy, women too have been considered less worthy. 

 

With time, this has lead women to feel ashamed of their cyclical, sensual and sexual nature, ending in suppressing, medicating and ignoring their innate power.

 

And this is NOT what we want for YOU. We want you to flourish in your womanhood.

 

Our experience has been, that this path to greater well-being for a woman leads through bringing awareness and kindness back to the female body, feminine qualities and the truth beating in their own hearts.

 

By learning how to take care of your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual self, you will not just contribute to your own healing, but also to the healing of those that came before you, and those who will come after you. 

 

This path is best walked together with other women – women who are ready to cheer each other on as they learn how to navigate this new way of embodied living. 

 

Now for the first time, I’m teaming up with Nathalie Sommer, an experienced and passionate Relationship & Intimacy Coach who also launched Hong Kong’s first health and detox retreat - to bring to women a 4 day retreat that lets them fall in love with themselves, their female body and feminine essence.

And so we are calling you, Sister, to retreat with us in HERspace.

Our Sanctuary

Our sanctuary for this retreat is a private villa surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, only a short drive from the beach and local waterfall on the beautiful island of Koh Samui.

 

Equipped with both, spacious single and twin-share rooms, practice area, an expansive  garden and pool, this villa provides us with a safe and quiet space to disconnect from the noise of the outer world and instead move inwards.

What To Expect From Joining HERspace?

Throughout the retreat, you will be exposed to both, theory and experiential learning. During the experiential learning part, we will guide you through different practices such as:

  • Breath Awareness - simple yet profound practices that will help you to feel more alive in your body, receive greater pleasure and become more present in the moment.
  • Intuitive Movement - a powerful practice that will allow you to become more intimate with your emotions and express and release them through movement, breath and sound.
  • Feminine Embodiment Practices - a variety of practices that will help you to connect with your feminine essence and your female body.
  • Respectful Touch - touch practices help you to soften your body, and they release in you the hormone Oxytocin. Oxytocin is the hormone that helps women to relax after periods of stress. Being touched by your sister also helps to build trust in other women, and it is a beautiful way to care for each other. Ultimately, it will help you to train your “receive & give button” in life. Touch in our retreat does not include nudity nor genital touching. 
  • Partner Sharing Practices - these practices will help you to access your truth and inner wisdom and give voice to these within a container of confidentiality. They will also enhance your capacity to listen to others actively and compassionately. 
  • Group Practices - the benefit are similar to the partner sharing practices, but in addition they strengthen the container of the group and are healing medicine for the collective wounds of the feminine.
  • Visualisation - visualisation journeys are helpful practices to access the subconscious that holds unhelpful limiting beliefs and change these through way of imagination. In our retreat they will help you to connect more with your female body and the wise woman within.
  • Freewriting -  this is a practice that supports you in accessing your emotions and thoughts without censoring the ones you may deem as  unacceptable or “not good enough’. As you bring to paper your real emotions and thoughts you gain greater clarity about your life and insight about how to move forward.
  • Women’s Yoga - yoga with a more playful, pleasurable and intuitive approach.

Testimonials - This is what women are saying from working with Nathalie and Corinne

"I met Nathalie almost two years ago when she was focusing primarily on Wellness Coach. I soon realised that she is the kind of person and coach that sees deep into a someone's needs and find ways to help.I have always been interested in sexuality and relationship. I did the Blueprint and Relationship coaching sessions with Nathalie and I loved it! I felt that she helped me open up in some areas that I was unsure, as well as better understand some of my sexual and relationship preferences with further enthusiasm and acceptance, even when things can be different from one person to another. With no judgement, good listening skills, good questions and understanding, Nathalie helped me go deeper into my intimacy. I have been married for nearly 20 years and at times things can be a little challenging, in the communication front as well as in the bedroom. Nathalie was able to shed some light and give some tips to improve and grow on all fronts. And mainly, I felt more self assured, more accepting and happier of my preferences sexually and intimately. I would certainly recommend Nathalie and her coaching to anyone going through changes or challenges in their relationship, be it the duration of a relationship, divorces, doubts or simply wanting to go deeper into their own sexuality, sensuality and satisfaction as I did.

Thanks again Nathalie and I wish you all the best! " ~ From: Human Resource and Training Professional

"I was starving emotionally and physically in my relationship. Feeling edgy, frustrated, desperate at times. Asking my partner to meet my needs, and feeling ashamed and embarrassed when he tried, but it was awkward and unfulfilling. I was ready to give up. But giving up on my relationship was also giving up on myself. I was carrying shame and guilt in my body - and acted out in anger and blame. My turning point was taking working with Nathalie- and finally understanding and accepting all those parts of myself - and being able to talk to my partner about it. It was a light bulb moment - realizing that I’m wired this way, that I need it, and that I’m ok! And that it’s possible to have my needs met. I wasn’t weird or wrong for wanting it all. I can now say that ALL of my fantasies came true, and all of my needs are met. I am no longer starving. I am in love even more now than before, I feel deeply understood and met by my partner, and I know I’ve got the tools and the skills to ask for everything I want. I can’t wait to see what else we can explore!" ~ Sarah H.  

"Like a true love story, finding Women's Temple was equally unexpected and meant-to-be. For me it was like finding a unicorn - a place for both relaxation, movement, laughter, reflection, growth, self-discovery, and all of that together will the most sincere, warm and welcoming group of women. Temple simply leaves you smiling and glowing for days - like the best facial you've ever had!  After 4 years in Hong Kong, and working in a very male dominated environment, I had learned how to be goal-oriented, productive, strong and assertive - but along the way lost connection with my feminine side and forgotten how to just be. Then by a complete coincidence I met Corinne, and joining her Women's Temple was like finding home again. Through temple I've reconnected to myself, found a place to unwind, unfold and get grounded - reclaiming that balance in life, we all deserve, but is so hard to achieve in a busy place like Hong Kong. Thanks Corinne for this beautiful oasis, for creating a place for women to connect, to feel empowered as well as to let go and soften. Your Temple evenings has truly been transformative!" ~ Katrine F. Olsen

“I moved to Hong Kong a year ago in what I thought was a pursuit of dream job. I was soon brought back to reality trying to cope in a new city alone, making new friends and coping with a job and colleagues that was slowly killing my soul and passion for life. 2017 rolled around, I went through some extreme changes at work that filled me with self-doubt. I knew I was heading for a burn out and was very close to giving up my Asian love affair. I gifted myself a session with Corinne. Since my first session with Corinne, I have had a 180 degree change in my life. Her session with me was gentle and life changing. Her support didn’t just stop at the session, instead she provided me with practices that I could start implementing right away. The weeks following the session I had amazing support to ensure I am coping and integrating. I am now full of energy. Work is amazing but most importantly I am working towards the kind of life I want to lead. This is the best present I was able to buy myself. Better than a pair of Jimmy Choo’s.“ ~Monique, Real Estate Operation Manager
