Black Madonna: Pathway to Negredo

Updated: May 3, 2023





Humanity unconsciously has a“ fear of nature”, but not just fear of nature itself, but the fear of our true nature. This fear unconsciously separates one from the primordial mother earth. In every attempt to reconnect with her, we are unconsciously confronted with harmful memories & fear programs that have ripped our sacred entitlement to our relationship with nature & non-human relations. We have severed that relationship either through harming the land or being unrightfully displaced from one's home & cultural roots. We have lost more than land, we have lost its wisdom, medicine and kinship. We have lost the sacred language, intimacy, devotion & principles around engaging with her. This separation has created disease, ecological disasters and the disintegration of our deeper humanity.


How do we become intimate with her again?




Have you ever yearned to commune with Mama Africa? Birthplace of all of humanity. Have you ever yearned to know her face, to feel her love and to run into her arms as she redeems and purifies all your past actions. In spirituality, Negrado in a sacred journey of alchemy through blackness. The Dark Mother supports us to transform our greatest shame, pain, limitations, challenges into the greatest joy, wisdom and healing. This is the art of alchemy, that turns lead into gold. We bring our darkest experiences and worst afflictions to the divine mother to transmute and alchemies to the light.


Earth Reconnection & Accessing The Song of Sophia




Within the sacred landscapes of Dullstroom, abundant with one of the most sacred ancient ruins in humanity, we will spend the weekend re-establishing a relationship with our true mother, the mother beyond the mother who is the original and primordial birther of life. Through healing your relationship with Negreda- The Dark Divine Mother, Mama Africa as well as the Cosmic Mother, you have the opportunity to be truly nourished, loved, held and supported by Mother Earth. She will be able to support you in everything that you do and create because it is through her body that creation must happen.


Returning to The Land


In the weeks leading to the retreat you will learn never before taught animistic principles of learning to communicate, connect feed & honour Mother Earth as a Deity. The two pre course lessons give you a practical and shamanic approach to communing with mother as your most Ancient Ancestor so that you can reinstate her as a guide, teacher, ally & ultimately as your mother.


Through this process you will have the opportunity to heal ancestral traumas around earth reconnection, ask for forgiveness & reinstate the sacred practices that allow you to be in right relationship with her. You are able to begin to redeem yourself from the harm inflicted by our human kin. As she is our primary initiator of life, when you heal your relationship with her, she will equip you with the capacity to navigate your daily challenges, give you insight on our soul path, guide your next steps & support you to actualize your dreams through her body to channel heaven on Earth.

Who are the Nustas?



Karpay means initiation. The Ñustas are connected to the waters and mountains on this planet and will beautifully support you to connect again with the female energy within you, on a deeper level, to heal, to be nurtured, to be expressed.


The Ñustas are connected to the 7 Plaedean Goddess who support both men and women to remember their feminine Dharma as The Embodied principles of the Goddess.




The healing energy of the Ñusta will strengthen your connection with all the feminine aspects within and around you, on earth and the cosmos, through many layers. These initiations have a deep effect, they support and accelerate your spiritual growth. They create a new balance with yourself, connected with the grounded energy of the Earth, the Water, the Fire, the Air, the Wind.


We will be working with the Nustas to heal the first 3 chakras of the body where the most ancestral trauma is held, so as to support the wisdom and soul codes held in the upper chakras to land inn the body and your earth star to support you to walk your purpose at a deeper level.


Receive Healing through the Black light




When we allow ourselves to spiral through the dark void of the divine mother, we uncover our own hidden treasure & birth it through our wombs. Each and everyone of us have a past where we have experienced the things that have brought us shame, where we felt disempowered, violated or even overlooked. This memory sits in the womb of our mothers and our ancestors which has been passed down from generation to generation into the basin of our own personal wombs. We inherit this and it lives through us through our experiences and what we magnetism towards ourselves.


The that shame we hold leaves us contracted and unable to co-create with her, and therefore we cannot fully root ourselves in the earth and return




The Black Rose of the dark mother gives us the opportunity to clear these personal, collective and ancestral curses that have violated our cosmic feminine identity and have slowed down our feminine expression, depriving us of our roots and connection. This process will immensely support you with your creativity, your capacity to move your body, to dance and to awaken to love, connectivity and the heartbeat and the feminine Earth.


Heal Through The Feminine Arts


This weekend involves deeply immersing yourself with the feminine through art, dance, movement and meditation. In order to connect with the subtle vibrations and tones of the mother, we must come out of our mind and back into our hearts. Connecting with the feminine dimension can only be accessed through the space beyond the mind. We will work with the tools that support your to slow down into the feminine earth and rhythm so as to align you with the subtle nature, tone and frequencies of the mother.


Holy Sacrament: Femtheogens


During this weekend will also be working with Entheogens ( plant medicine) to access the ancient archetypes of the Goddess working with the tantric channels to really connect with the feminine in nature, the divine & all spectrums of life. This plant medicine helps you to access altered states of consciousness, merge directly with your divinity and dive deep into the hidden feminine archetypes of humanity. The feminine archetype is not a single entity, it manifests in multitude of aspects, she occupies the spectrum that ranges from darkness to light, and is ever present. Through patriarchal domination we have disconnected from the feminine and have lost the ability to integrate her energies and offerings. Through working with femtheogens just like the priestess used to do in the Ancient shamanic & Christian Orthodox churches in collaboration with the high tantra and breath work, we are able to activate the dormant codes within their DNA to access and awaken the potential to fully embody the divine feminine essence.


Experience with working with Fentheogens include altered states of consciousness, seeing strong vivid colours, remembering past lives, connecting with Ancestors, Deities or Guides, out of body experiences, physical purging, death of the ego. Recalling past traumas to be released. Feeling oneness with everything, connecting deeply with nature and the Earth.


A detox guide will be given to follow prior to the ceremony.



Singing of the Icaros, movement, drumming and chanting will accompany the ceremony to support us all to be embodied.

This journey is going to be incredibly rich, empowering & never before experienced teachings of earth reconnection and animistic wisdom handed down by the indigenous people.


Through the medicines of the Nustas, We will work with the first 3 primary chakra systems in our bodies where we hold the most feminine root fears which govern fear around survival, finances, safety, self expression, connection and self worth.


We will reconnect her through the song, pulse & vibration of the Earth. By deeply communing with her, we awaken the primordial wisdom that has been lost to us. We will go into ritual practices & animistic principles that help us to communicate with the divine mother & the spirit of nature to invoke healing, clear ancestral fears and awaken our spiritual gifts.



When we allow ourselves to spiral through the dark void of the divine mother, we uncover our own hidden treasure & birth it through our wombs. Each and everyone of us have a past where we have experienced the things that have brought us shame, where we felt disempowered, violated or even overlooked. This memory sits in the womb of our mothers and our ancestors which has been passed down from generation to generation into the basin of our own personal wombs. We inherit this and it lives through us through our experiences and what we magnetism towards ourselves.


The Black Rose of the dark mother gives us the opportunity to clear these personal, collective and ancestral curses that have violated our cosmic feminine identity and have slowed down our feminine expression, whether it is our creativity, our capacity to move our bodies, to dance and to awaken to love, connectivity and the heartbeat and the feminine Earth.


In the 3 days of your immersion in the dark rose, you will receive the opportunity to be absorbed by the black light of the feminine mother in the deepest darkest stillness within yourself so that you can break the chains that bind your body and expression.


You will be guided into the sacred rhythm of your body to break down the locks that have held down your feminine expression so that you can sway, dance, shake and sing yourself back into life and the erotic rhythm of the divine mother. The beauty, grace, sensuality and fluidity of the cosmic feminine shakti, will become alive within you.
