The Poison Mother Sacred Art Retreat was my initiation to the spiritual world and to the shamanic artist’s way. Imelda Almqvist is a powerful but kind guide into both worlds.
This retreat has been my rite of passage from the wounded child to be an adult: it has been my blessing and my healing.
Recognising the Dark Mother as the most deeper teacher is a discovery that changes your life forever!!”

The 2 day sacred art introduction course left me hungry for more with Imelda, the experience of the labyrinth having had a profound effect that continues to be with me unlocking inner secrets and wisdom. This beautiful four day retreat, immersed me yet deeper into a world of non-reality with time warping in all directions! An opportunity to work with the Dark Goddess in whichever unique way she comes to you. Personal ceremony and witnessing each other creating a beautiful spiritual bond shedding tears and sharing laughter, appearing in each other's journeys and dreams. One of my happiest times ever sat in Imelda's garden bathed in sunshine painting the sea of Tiamat! My life will never be the same again!
