Retreat Reflections Greece Goddesses Share Their Stories

In our new podcast mini-series “Retreat Reflections”, I speak with a group of Goddesses that went to Greece with me. As they share their stories and experiences, we expand on our ascension journeys, both individually and as a collective.

In May of 2024, we embarked on an Ascension Journey Retreat to Greece with a group of wonderful, powerful, and amazing women. We traveled to Athens and Santorini and spent days soaking in the magic of the sites, the rituals, and the ceremonies together. I invited some of these beautiful women from the Ascension Retreat to speak about their experiences.

It was an honor to gather with these Goddesses and hear how they each experienced this retreat uniquely and how they worked on their inner landscapes. In this episode, each of these women explains their experiences in the ascension practices, in circle with other supportive women, and how their vulnerability combined with inner sovereignty empowered them.

We discussed what was special to them, what we did on the retreat, and how each of them integrated these practices afterward. The integration process is so important and it’s beautiful to hear that each person has had similar experiences and then had their own unique way of processing it.

If you listen to this episode and you feel called to this work, you are meant to step into the sacred container of these retreats. We gather in places of ancient wisdom and modern awakening, combining the ancient with the present. 

I see women, who were once persecuted for such transformative work, burnt at the stake, now come together to celebrate each other. We collectively activate our inner light, stepping into the radiant, sensual, and sovereign beings we were always meant to be. If this is calling you, then please take a look at our upcoming retreats to activate it within your being as these women did!
