we will connect to the Goddess and our deep feminine wisdom, amidst a supportive feminine community. We will also visit ancient healing sites, sacred caves, enjoy the beautiful Mediterranean Sea and walk in the ancient Cretan landscape. This trip is for exceptional women, experienced in psychological, spiritual or ritual work, who want to go deeper and live life to the full.

Empowerment and Transformation for Women

Welcome to an adventure of a lifetime on a Cretan holiday for women only. Since 1995 I have been leading sacred journeys to the stunning island of Crete, located in the eastern Mediterranean.

It is a great privilege to return once again to a place so rich in feminine history and spirituality, a magical place where we can embody our feminine nature in a profound and healing way.

In ancient times, Crete was a place of holy initiation rites for women, designed to help women align with their femininity, sexuality and powers of intuition and vision.

Archeological and mythological evidence reveal the bountiful gifts flowing from the Goddess tradition of this land, including the 3 powerful Cretan Snake Goddesses, the labyrinth, the labrys or double-headed ax, the myths of King Minos and Theseus, the bull dancers of the Cretan court and the ecstatic dancers of Ariadne, high priestess.

During our 14 days together on Crete, we will explore the Cretan priestess tradition, unveiling the Mysteries of feminine empowerment and transformation.

These states of being are intrinsic to the feminine way and honoring them will feel like coming home to our deepest self.  As we embody our deep feminine nature and learn to trust our power and our spiritual depth, we can live our life with clarity, compassion and purpose.

During the retreat we will integrate our growing knowledge of the Feminine Mysteries by working with the sacred body postures and movements inspired by the Cretan Snake Goddesses.
