We selected this retreat space, endearingly nicknamed “A Place to Exhale,” with the exact intention to do just that - exhale. So take a deep breath in, and as you exhale, join us in the vision.
Imagine starting your day climbing out of bed in this idyllic log cabin, set on 13+ private acres of magical forest in northwestern CT and greeted by the intuitive presence and wisdom of other women on a parallel journey to greater consciousness and empowerment.
You splash hot water on your face with ease and without tripping over toys or laundry baskets. You make your way through the open and airy loft-like space with large windows that invite a spring awakening to be part of your experience indoors, to prepare your warm beverage.
You find your place in our meditation circle and take your seat among sister Goddesses, all who value sacred silence, and intimate connection.
Outside you are completely surrounded by the sensations of nature and notice a sense of cozy intimacy and spaciousness.
After finding your grounded center by engaging in mindful meditation, you prepare to further awaken your body and spirit through morning yoga and/or movement sessions before settling down to a simple, healthy and high vibe breakfast.
Each meal is an opportunity to engage in silent reflection or with the practices offered during the prior sessions. With each exhale you further downregulate and soothe the nervous system accompanied by the healing power of community and of Mother Earth.
As the day unfolds, so do you, by way of the variety of conscious movement, mindset, meditation, shamanic healing and coaching modalities offered, and by the security that comes from knowing everything has been prepared for you with the strong intention to nourish your body.
And imagine closing your day with sacred intention - around a fire and in deep ceremony…
Before crawling into bed, cocoon up in one of the hammocks, stargaze on one of the decks, or root your bare feet into the earth and find your grounded center.
Awaken anew, having realigned with your soul’s purpose and fully tapped the wisdom of your intuition in the areas of life that matter to you most.
Are you ready to reclaim your life and give up the chameleon tendencies of adapting to the people and spaces around you?
Are you willing to be fully seen, truly heard, and held accountable to carry forth your highest potential?
You’ve got this - and we’ve got you.
May this women’s retreat bring forth in you all you need to take with you into the brighter months. In community we can discover and practice new ways of being that will benefit us to integrate in the relationships we’re in, the projects we manage, the children we may raise, or businesses we run.
Whatever it is, we see you.
We share the longing to commune among like-minded women in community and connect more deeply on a soul level and with
We too are yearning to hear our voices resonant with the other cyclical rhythms of our bodies and of nature.
Our days begin around 8am and end after sunset.

Join us for 4 days and 3 nights from Friday March 15th to Monday the 18th for a Goddess Retreat designed to ground and hold you as you awaken from your winter slumber into the new and fresh energy of spring. Pump the breaks on the hustle and bustle and stir the cauldron that is simmering with your potency and power.
This year we work under a waxing gibbous moon. This is a time to ignite your power and nurture yourself. As the energy of the moon amplifies we are tuning in to and turning up our inner radiance and light. We expand and blossom from a trust of our self-wisdom that we may not find without slowing down and coming home to ourselves. Consider this the place and the women with whom you unburden and lighten your load.
The full retreat will take place from Friday March 15th to Monday March 18th, 2024. Should you choose to attend the additional VIP day on Thursday March 14th, then you may return to the Goddess House with us the evening of Thursday March 14th.
The core retreat dates are Friday, March 15th to Monday March 18th. Plan to arrive on Friday between 10am-1pm. You may depart around 11am once our Closing ceremony completes or you may book an Integration Session with Sarah or Laura and receive individual and custom-curated healing and/or coaching that’s directly relevant to your needs, desires or circumstances.
