FAQ’s about womens retreats and workshops
Our womens retreats are empowering healing journeys into the mysteries of the feminine
Most of our retreats are held on the magical island of Bali, an island positively brimming with beauty and abundance. We have found that this unique island is incredibly supportive for women working with issues around femininity and sexuality and we create our programs to include ample time to enjoy the nature, the massages and the incredible culture. We include a water purification from a resident water priestess during the retreats to aid the process of deepening and letting go. Oh and did we mention the food? You are certainly in for a treat during your time here with us.
FAQ’s about women’s retreats

Our workshops and retreats are for any woman of any age ( we have attendees ranging from 17-70 years old!) and any level of experience. We welcome, and indeed LOVE, complete beginners, mums, grandmas, teenage girls and also women who feel like complete strangers to their femininity as well as seasoned goddesses who seek to fill up in a held space…. Basically, if you feel like you need this then this is for you!
What will I get?
You will get a place to rest, to rejuvenate, to learn, to heal, to thrive, to dance, to be loved, to shed layers, to weep, to sigh deeply and to laugh big belly laughs.

Testimonials from previous retreat participants
I really enjoyed having the space and acceptance to drop in deeply in a safe environment. Coming from a very ‘yang’ background it was refreshing to be surrounded with nurturing ‘yin’ feminine energy. It was great to push my boundaries and comfort zone and at the same time be honoured in my truth and what felt right for me. I was able to release so much trauma and heal. I felt very held and supported in my journey and have left with much gratitude, a sense of wholeness and a higher love frequency. ~ Devon-USA
