We invite you to join us in a sacred journey dedicated to the spirit and grace of Bali as we embrace our Self … our deepest beauty nature. In that embrace, mystery and transformation quicken and dance.
Who We Are
We invite women to gather for retreat and replenishment at one of our sacred women’s circles. Storytelling, yoga, journaling, guided imagery, and more … will serve as forms to access the blessings and beauty that flow in each of us. We will create a circle of abundance, compassion and replenishment as we weave together our stories and wisdom. As each woman rediscovers herself and finds her light … our world is healed. Women are created to be together, to collaborate, to support each other and to be a sacred community. These women’s circles lift our spirits and fill our hearts.
We are currently accepting registration for Embracing Your Self: A Sacred Journey to Bali, June 17 – 24, 2018. Join us in a sacred journey dedicated to the spirit and grace in Bali as we embrace our deepest beauty nature. In that embrace, mystery and transformation quicken and dance! Bali herself is a sensual feast, filled with wonder and light. She has been called by many names … including the “dawning of the world.” Let us ask her to illuminate us, so that we may walk in harmony and reflect our light into the world.
Our abode in Bali is Bagus Jati, set on 12 acres of hillside gardens amongst lush tropical forests in the mountains outside of Ubud, Bali. “Imagine a place so green and rich from nature’s creation that the only noises you hear are exotic birds and butterflies, the views you see are of tropical forests, mountains and springs, where the healing foods you eat are grown organically in our garden, a place where your every need is met with a smile … where you are offered daily inspirations to live a more healthy, more harmonious way of life.” For more information, visit our Bali Retreat page.
We have gathered for 18 years for our Portals to the Self: A Women’s Circle by the Sea retreat on Isla Mujeres, an island in the tranquil turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean. We are moving our location to Tulum, Mexico and the dates are March 2 – 8, 2019. Tulum was a stop on the sacred pilgrimage of Mayan women as they created ceremony and ritual to the Mayan moon goddess Ixchel. By honoring Ixchel’s tradition, we become midwives of our dreams and visions. Participants will stay at Amansala, an intimate, eco-chic retreat center on the beach where the beauty of the ocean, tropical gardens and the lush fertile jungle will provide a perfect abode for the retreat. For more information, visit our Tulum Mexico Retreat page.
“The circle time and Bali seem more and more magical, as images soften and memories take on new significance. Lakshmi lives in my heart and in my home, with the abundance of beauty and riches in my life. Love and passion abound! I am so grateful and appreciative of every woman who found their way to that wonderful retreat and circle, and especially to Ceci and Karen, who guided us so gently and beautifully through our processes.”Kathi – New Mexico
“This retreat was one of the most powerful and nurturing experiences of my life. Gently and wisely lead, we participants created a safe circle of caring wherein deep sharing and supportive silence were equally valued. The setting was beautiful, and the meals were exquisitely presented and delicious. Stories, songs, poems, dance and rituals invited us to go deeper into ourselves and strengthened our bonds with one another. The best recommendation I can give is that I would go again to sweet Isla and this life-giving retreat in a heartbeat, and am already making plans to do so in the future.”Marilyn - Manitoba
“Thank you for a life-changing soul recharging experience! I returned to my world with a fresh perspective infused with joy! Thank you!”Cathy - Nashville
“Why did I ever leave you, oh gentle healing Isle of Women? I can still feel the water of the sea holding me up as I lay back and just burbled happiness. For one week I was warm. The temperature, the love of the women in the group … and the food was without parallel.”Mary Frances - Pennsylvania
“I’m so glad I followed my heart’s intuitive call to join the incredible women who came together on Isla Mujeres. The compassionate energy of the circle was a beautiful container for all of us journeying women as we were truly held by each other and the presence of the Mayan Goddess Ixchel. I was blessed to receive the healing and pampering experience that I was hoping for and I know that waves of healing will continue to bathe me like the clear turquoise waters of this island paradise. I whole-heartedly encourage you to discover this journey – I’m sure you’ll feel blessed as I did.”Corinne - British Columbia
“I absolutely can’t tell you enough how you two spirit women have changed my life. To finally be tapped back into the truest spirit of the universe and the support of the female community with its deep ancestral and tribal love is such a gift. For that I will be eternally grateful. The healing I have experienced in your presence and in the presence of these beautiful and empowered women is huge and because of the portal you have created, the shifts in my life I believe are going to be absolutely profound.”Pamela – Rhode Island
