Join Anita Kaiser and Joan Ruffels for the ultimate awakening retreat!

We will be holding space for you in lovely St Lucia at a gorgeous and magical property. Yoga each day and various opportunities for deep self-reflection will inspire you to blossom into your biggest, beautiful self.

There will be island excursions, incredible food, scenery, and friendships formed.

Awakening the Goddess Within includes:

Daily yoga/meditation classes for all Goddess levels

Guided processes offering opportunities for personal transformations

Sisterhood with unique, playful and inspiring (or aspiring!) goddesses, like you

Exclusive, unique Goddess-themed retreat

7 nights lodging at a precious, eco-chic plantation

Creative meals prepared with Caribbean fusion flair

Hidden, black sandy coves

Clear, turquoise waters for swimming and snorkeling among tropical reefs

Majestic natural elements—rainforests, mountains, mineral baths and more

Discover and awaken your inner goddess

 Supported by the magical energy of an exclusive restored colonial-era West Indian sugar plantation. Sink deeper into your true nature, experience peace and respite from busy life. Allow yourself to dream as you’re embraced by tropical flowers, venerable trees, orchards and gardens, and meandering trails leading to the Caribbean Sea.

Balenbouche Estate, a 75 acre heritage site where past and present are intricately interwoven will leave a lasting imprint on your soul. Five Caribbean-Asian themed cottages designed for maximum comfort and minimal impact on the earth await you. Water is solar heated and trade winds provide cooling breezes. Mosquito netting and fans help ensure comfortable rest at the end of your day.

Enjoy lovely meals* served “goddess style”, on a large veranda.  We’ll share delicious fresh local foods, conversation and laughter amidst lush colors and textures in our tropical landscape. Days will begin and finish with a celebration of healthful and healing food options that includes:

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
