About This Event
As a Guardian of The Sacred Feminine, it is my pleasure to reconnect other women with the Priestess Traditions. In our retreats we use the archetypes of Greek Mythology as a lens to unpack the different layers of the subtle body, heal, and understand your Soul’s unique Purpose.
Each Goddess has a distinct frequency and rules a specific chakra. As we unpack the mythologies, adopt and try on different archetypes, old low-frequency patterns are burned away and replaced by Divine Feminine Intelligence. Through this work you will develop your unique psychic gifts and become a conduit of the Sacred Feminine within the Earth Plane.
In this Sacred Feminine retreat, we are going to wake up the Inner Aphrodite and let her guide us back into joyful ownership of receiving. Aphrodite is the Goddess of Love, Pleasure, Creativity, Fertility, Oceans, and Flowers. In Greek Mythology, she is considered the Divine Woman, the Alpha-Omega, the lover of All Mankind, and the ruler of the Heart. Many women neglect this portion of their Sacred Femininity to make room for logical Athena energy, or narrow Aphrodite into a simple sexual dimension. She is so, so much more than that! When Aphrodite is blocked, receiving is blocked and we cannot manifest what we desire. What are you trying to draw into your life? Is it time to clear the rubble and make way for the abundance you deserve?
From a shamanic perspective, she represents the greatest frequency we can achieve while in the human form: Oneness, AWE, Universal LOVE, and the SOUL LEVEL of our own energy. She IS the Mystical Experience. When we work with Aphrodite, we are asked the the core questions? "Are you truly in love with yourself? Do you create busyness to avoid being alone? Do you procrastinate joy? Do you live in fear or trust? Does your human conditioning clot your Soul Purpose? Do you believe you are broken? Do you believe you are your job? Your body? Your thought? Your Past? Why do I crave deep connections and find myself unfulfilled? WHO AM I?
Amidst palm trees, lush tropical gardens and the warm chocolate sand beaches of the pacific ocean you will be gently guided into the most mystical and sublime terrain of your inner landscape. We will rekindle the Wild Nature Woman, integrate 'Medusa,' the Pain Body, and become the Divine Mystical Goddess Aphrodite. Get ready to exhale and soak into the Gift of Belonging to yourself. Through archetypal storytelling, historical insights, group discussion, daily movement (asana/hiking), mindfulness meditation, breath work, Soul Regression, astrological symbolism, quiet reflective time, and silent beach walks, we will begin to deepen the Art of Receiving. It's All about YOU!

Jenny is masterful with her use of Goddesses as archetypes, and uncovering those Goddesses within us. I'm not exaggerating when I say, I feel LIGHTER than I ever have. I HIGHLY recommend this journey to any woman who wants to go deeper into their psyche and come out stronger and more whole!" -Gigi Good
