Become the 21st-Century Goddess You Already Are
A retreat for 21st-century women
What does it mean to be a Goddess?
When I started to write my book on the healthy habits needed to have fulfilling, loving relationships, I realized that my ideas for being a healthy woman were my expression of what it means to be a 21st century Goddess.
It’s not about looking like the Goddess Venus in the Botecelli painting “The Birth of Venus.” It not about being beautiful, having long wavy hair, and a curvy body. It’s being a loving partner in all our relationships. It’s about intentionally connecting, being present, speaking and acting positively (rather than complaining all the time), appreciating the best in others, owning your reactions and not blaming others, and the list goes on.
I first became intrigued with the notion of women as Goddesses in 2018 when my friend, Anne Peterson, began having community conversations with women to examine what it means to be a woman?
Our conversations tapped into the notion of being a Goddess and the Goddess Movement. Anne and a group of diverse and amazing women (including me) who are Goddess Guides are building our community of women. We are exploring what it means to be feminine, be a woman, and be a Goddess individually and collectively. .
We had our first retreat in June, 2019, in Puerto Vallarta. The experience was soul-nurturing, engaging, relaxing and fun. As a Guide, I led one of the explorations into how Disney fairy tales set us up wait for our “Prince” to give us power, rather than own our innate feminine power as we partner with our Prince.
Our first online retreat – a Goddess “Stay-cation” – starts in May 31 and continues weekly through early July 2020. Future live retreats will be scheduled so stay tuned.
As one of the Goddess Guides, I help lead the conversation. These are luxury (and often all-inclusive) retreats that are reasonable, feed your heart, soul and belly (meaning yummy food and alcohol if you want).
It’s not about looking like the Goddess Venus.
I’m blogging about all things Goddess and invite you to subscribe to my Goddess blog. A few times a month I’ll post about my observations of my and other women’s journeys to own and express the Goddessness within us to the world and restore the balance of masculine and feminine personally and for the world.
How much you love yourself will define how much you can let others love you.
