2019 Goddess Retreat
Bali Goddess Retreat
We are thrilled to report that our Goddess Retreat in Bali was a smashing success! Here’s a little rundown to get you or your favorite Goddess excited about joining us next year!
The intention of our retreat was to create space for women of all ages (we had ages 20-70!) to come together in a supportive space to explore creativity, vulnerability and self-love. We designed our retreat schedule around this intention, leaving plenty of free time for relaxing!
We had a variety of different yoga & meditation classes throughout the week, all taught by me, Brittany Andrews (@missbrittrae) and Rivka Peiffer (@rivkaloha). These classes were centered around empowerment and opening the heart in a safe, healthy way. Sometimes that included journal writing, sometimes it involved partner work, and sometimes it involved an ass-kicking vinyasa flow.
We planned the retreat schedule so every other day we left the villa for an excursion (all included in the retreat price!) We had the chance to tour the rice fields and gardens of a small village, led by a local named Putu. Putu’s grandfather was the village medicine man and taught Putu all about the power of plant-based healing. Putu’s stories were hilarious and heartfelt and honest, and as he taught us about the healing properties of clove leaves, mangosteen, cacao, and more you could feel his strong sense of spirituality that is all-pervading in the Balinese culture. It was beautiful. While we were walking and learning, Putu’s wife was back at their house preparing a traditional meal which we then enjoyed in their home.
Hiking down to the base of the Sekumpol Waterfall was another highlight of this grand goddess adventure! The roaring water was so powerful as it cascaded down the mountain. Swimming in this pool of magic was exhilarating and awe-inspiring. We had arranged to stop at a local restaurant on the way back which was a delicious way to end the day.
Toward the end of the week, we chose to take everyone snorkeling off of Menjangan Island — and it was just spectacular! We rented two private boats to take us all to the island, along with a couple guides to show us the best spots and make sure everyone was comfortable and safe in the water. Menjangan Island is part of West Bali National Park, and has calm water and a reef that is bursting with life. Thousands of brightly colored, almost fluorescent fish of all sizes scuttled about as we all turned into mermaids exploring this dreamlike underwater landscape. Our burned bums are all thanks to this snorkeling trip!
Days at the Villa
Free days spent at the villa were meant to be catered to what each Goddess needed — some chose to sleep in, some chose to party at our private pool or beach, and some scheduled spa treatments with a group of massage therapists who’d come to the villa to provide massages and scrubs and facials and pedicures. We had an excellent cooking staff who prepared and served all of our meals at the villa fresh, from things they’d gotten at the market the previous day.
The culmination of all of this adventure and yoga and laughing and self-care was an environment where we truly got to practice and see the results of women supporting other women. It was an inspiring thing to witness each Goddess feel support rather than competition, recognizing that the success of one Goddess in no way minimized her own value. We all left this special place full dreams and plans to achieve them with the lasting love and support of Goddess sisters from across the globe.
