About This Event
A women’s mystery school immersion retreat in nurturing Santa Elena, Colombia that awakens your inner goddess, connects you to your beautiful, sensual body temple, and results in profound healing and transformation!
Isn’t it time you:
Break free from old dead energies and beliefs that are causing you pain and limitation
Be reborn into a new sense of freedom and personal empowerment
Fully embody your highest soul essence and purpose
And reconnect to your own inner vitality
Join us on a sacred sisterhood retreat for a special 22 days/21 nights to cultivate a new life vision built on your powerful inner resources, personal strengths and ecstatic freedom. Then, reenter the world as a sacred warrior!
This transformative mystery school immersion is for only a small group of women who are committed to purify and transform their body, emotions, mind and spirit. Unprocessed emotions, along with the conditioning received and stored in this lifetime and beyond, are locked in the body. Our bodies and auras are full of these blocked energies. Stuck energy prohibits our natural expression as beings and can delay and halt our spiritual evolution.
Soul/spirit cannot flow
where the energy does not go!
Drawing from methods and traditions known for profound and dynamic inner change, this women’s collective creates a sisterhood community that holds sacred space for each sister to transform into their magnificence. With a core focus on our sexuality as the master key to our most vital energized self, we explore relationship to both internal and external feminine and masculine attitudes and imbalances.
Using techniques from shamanism, yogic science, Buddhism, Taoism, tantra, quodoushka, archetypal work, and alchemical and new age spiritual science, Elaine Marie guides each woman through a personal healing transformation process that:
opens the vital energy in the body to maximize the flow of life-giving Shakti
clears away many limiting and conditioned emotional and mental beliefs, patterns and behaviors
deeply catalyzes spiritual evolution using the alchemical sciences clearing away karmic, ancestral and past life patterns and binding energetic contracts
What is the Goddess Body?
It is not a description of a body type or age nor of behaving hyper-sexual or hyper-blissful all the time. It is not any man-made cliche that attempts to objectify or define what the feminine is supposed to be, do or look like. It is important for us women to understand this!
The Goddess Body is a body that is open to its authentic natural responses and impulses towards life.
It is a body without resistance that does not resort to behavior which is inauthentic in order to portray a certain image. And, it is NOT fearful, numb or contracted against life to protect or armor itself from ‘perceived’ unsafe, external forces.
It IS a being in a state of grace, naturalness, openness and flow that is ready and clear to receive the impulses it was meant to em’body’ from the divine part of self. When this flow is opened in a female, she becomes the divine embodiment of the living Goddess. This is a state of mature feminine energy expressing itself confidently, creatively and authentically.
During this immersion, we use somatic body-based experiences and awareness get us out of our head and into our glorious instinctual being. We learn to embrace the feminine as it is in all of its glorious shapes, sizes, colors and calibrations.
We engage in a sensual, deep and lively head-to-toe exploration of our inner and outer bodies. This exploration clears, balances and integrates the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual parts of ourselves. It is amazing how much life vitality can be unlocked by this body-based work!
We dissolve the blocks in our heart center; open to our natural flowing sexual energies; create a deep emotional awareness; learn techniques to locate and release armoring, trauma and defensive postures; and finally uncage our rapturous true authentic voice to express the divinity of the Goddess within us.
This is a life-changing journey into authenticity! Expect to be different upon your return as you fully embody your radiance and life force energy! Gift yourself with your true self – THIS is who you came here to be!
What Happens During The Retreat?
Our retreat is consciously designed so that each day and nights’ activities build on each other. Rather than following a proverbial ‘peel an onion’ technique, we create a powerful spiral of energy that takes us to new levels of evolution. As the alchemy of our sacred container does its work, old energies, stale patterns and ineffective habits easily fall away. Fresh, self-empowering, self-supporting ways of being step in helping us weave an original tapestry of self - one that is light, open and joyful!
We focus on core archetypal themes, inner patterns of darkness and light, and
misaligned/imbalanced masculine and feminine frequencies within us. Through sacred self-inquiry into these areas, we are led into deep, inner reflection. Once there, we use expressive processes such as poetry, movement, touch, dance, art, sound, song and other musical means to explore and excavate our most hidden inner realms and shadows. And, to move the unwanted energies out of and desired energies into our bodies, we create a daily body practice of breathwork, Tantra yoga, and physical release and purification practices. This daily ritual goes home with us to support our continued spiral evolution.
Finally, the day’s work is integrated into evening meditations, gentle movement and stillness practices and ceremonies that unlock expansive dreamtime states perfect for deep healing. This special design triggers an awakening of greater consciousness, vitality and personal freedom while providing momentum for our upper spiral of energy! AND it all comes with lots of EASE and GRACE!

Venue HighlightsFinca Lemuria in located near the beautiful, small town of Santa Elena nestled high in the Andes mountains that surround Medellin, known as the ‘City of Eternal Spring’. Medellin is Colombia's most modern and beautiful city, where highrises tower out of blankets of green forest that reach up the mountain sides. In Santa Elena, we enjoy a tropical high mountain cloud forest ecosystem with stunning biodiversity amid rugged mountain terrain with many wetlands, streams, creeks, and lush native tropical vegetation. At any time, a mystical cloud cover can drift through the property creating a magical and surreal effect.
Local soils are rich with nutrients that allow local farmers the enjoyment of growing nutritious produce and an abundance of tropical and local varieties of flowers, many of which are exported to international markets abroad. Santa Elena is also the birthplace of the ornate flower arrangements called silletas that are the cornerstone of the Flower Festival or Feria de Las Flores in Medellin.
With a beautiful, warm and sunny climate during the dry season and with cool mountain evenings, our land offers a wide variety of flora and fauna and an amazing array of wild tropical bird species. We are also located on the boundaries of the National Parque Arvi, a 28,000 acre protected natural reserve area with many hiking trails right out our back door.
Santa Elena is a popular weekend destination for Medellin and offers a variety of artisan restaurants, cafes, spas, and a yoga dome. With its laid back rural villages, Santa Elena and the surrounding local pueblos are safe and friendly places to wander and the local Colombians are warm people eager to greet you with a neighborly “buenas!”
