Reclaiming Aphrodite

October 12-18, 2019 Costa Rica

Retreat to the majestic hideaway Encantada Resort in Esterillos Este, Costa Rica for a week of Surfing and Soul Work. In this Sacred Feminine retreat, we are going to wake up the Inner Aphrodite and let her guide us back into joyful ownership of our feminine life-force. Aphrodite is the Goddess of Love, Pleasure, Creativity, Fertility, Oceans, and Flowers. In Greek Mythology, she is considered the Divine Woman, the Alpha-Omega, the lover of All Mankind, and the ruler of the Heart. In this week long luxe retreat, take time for yourself and focus on life’s juiciness: Learn your love language, update bonding techniques, move past intimacy blocks, releasing frozen emotions & conditioning, debunk shame and guilt, celebrate your sexuality, sensuality, and drop into healing nocturnal health. This week of empowerment will clear the emotional rubble and make way for the cosmic generousity you deserve.

In western cultures, the Aphrodite Self is is often neglected, shamed, or repressed. In time this blocking of creative energy diminishes our life-force and manifestation becomes an uphill battle. Furthermore, many women neglect the Aphrodite portion of their Sacred Femininity to make room for logical Athena energy, or narrow Aphrodite into a simple sexual dimension. She is so, so much more than that! When Aphrodite is active in the psyche life is alive and you can metabolize life’s hardships into soul wisdom.  

Aphrodite teaches us how to fully embrace our unique form and love unconditionally. When we work with Aphrodite, we are asked the the core questions?  "Are you truly in love with yourself? Do you create busyness to avoid being alone? Do you procrastinate joy? Do you live in fear or trust? Does your human conditioning clot your Soul Purpose? Do you believe you are broken?  Do you believe you are your job? Your body? Your thought? Your Past?  Why do I crave deep connections and find myself unfulfilled? WHO AM I? 

In addition to the Aphrodite mythology, we will also visit the stories of Hera- Goddess of Marriage, Metis - Titan of Wisdom, Medusa, and learn about Dionysus and his Maenads. Get ready to exhale and soak into the Gift of Belonging to yourself. Through archetypal storytelling, historical insights, group discussion, daily movement (asana/hiking), mindfulness meditation, breath work, Soul Regression, astrological symbolism, quiet reflective time, and silent beach walks, we will begin to deepen the Art of Receiving. It's All about YOU!

This Retreat is a Great Fit for":

  • You have an open heart/mind and enjoy sharing.

  • You want to incorporate fun activities and some socializing while also addressing deep spiritual needs.

This Retreat is not a good fit:

  • You want a purely 'party' vacation. We will have lots of fun, but the point is to connect with ourselves and each other, not to escape or numb out with overindulgence. 

  • Don't like sharing or community.

  • Want to 'hook up.' This is not an 'erotic' retreat.

My friend Amber asked me to go to Costa Rica, for what I thought would be a yoga-ish retreat. I really had NO idea what was in store. I processed through some life-long traumas that I have been trying to shed for my entire adult life. I have been to therapy, I have done EMDR. But I really couldn’t get out of that heavy cloak I had been wearing my whole life.
We did breath work and meditation that was so unbelievably powerful. I’m not exaggerating when I say, I feel LIGHTER than I ever have.
I processed through my limiting beliefs, and fears of rejection and abandonment. I learned to trust Women, and more importantly, myself. I HIGHLY recommend this journey to any woman who wants to go deeper into their psyche and come out stronger and more whole!”

At the end our your days, you will not be asked how much money you made, what job you crafted, where you lived, or who adored you...all that will be asked is How Well Did you Love? Love is a journey into surrender and openness. Are you ready to bloom?
