3 Reasons Joining Retreats are a Must
Uplevel Your Skills and Transform at a Rapid Rate
When you are at a retreat, you never know who you are going to meet and what you will learn from them. So, it’s not just the curriculum from the retreat you will learn, but what you get from other people is just as valuable. When you’re in a room full of people who are thinking about your life for 24 hours a day while you are sharing your dreams on how to improve it, it’s phenomenal what insights others can give you that you wouldn’t have thought of on your own.
Confront and Heal Your Triggers
Not only will you learn from the people who show up, but you’re also going to be triggered by all of them because you will see your greatness reflected back at you. And if you haven’t accepted that confidence or your worth, it’s going to come as a fear-based trigger. When you’re in a room with powerful, amazing people, your insecurities come straight to the surface. But when you start to confront your triggers and start to see them, you can begin to immediately transform them because you are now aware of the pattern.
Connection and Accountability
A lot of times when we have accountability partners in our friends and family, We’re still worried that they’re going to judge us. But when you join a retreat, the connection you build with others happens early on to make you feel like you’re loved and accepted. This takes the connection piece within yourself first because you can’t fully connect with someone else because judgment and fear will act as a buffer between you and that partnership of really being intimate.

THE GODDESS RETREAT
The Goddess Retreat is a 5 day full immersion all-inclusive transformational experience with a potent mix of magic and self-love.
Holding sacred space for women to come together to connect and heal is a powerful thing.
Combined with the relaxing magic of mother nature in the perfect luxury modern cabin in Copper Mountain, Colorado this experience will help your soul evolve to a new level.
It will be laid back with inspired convos, meditations, and workshops around self-love, empowerment, healing your chakras, manifesting, and stepping into your authentic purpose.
You’ll experience meaningful one-on-one connections with other women and lots of time for reconnecting with yourself.
I am so excited about to be planning another Goddess Retreat and to host a sacred healing space for you to make rapid changes and transformation in your life.
It is truly a miracle to witness the love, healing, support, connection, play, and fun that goes down at these retreats. It is truly what I’m meant to do in life.
I pour my heart and soul into crafting these Goddess retreats for you.
