Goddess in the Forest 4

A Sacred Energy Retreat for Women

Thursday, Nov 7 - Sunday, Nov 10, 2019

The Gainesville Retreat Center
Gainesville, Florida

Next Level Journeys sacred energy retreat

Women's rituals, retreats, and gatherings help us to reclaim our birthright- Our power, our intuition, and our bodies. While the activities we will participate in over the weekend can be therapeutic on their own, the general purpose is to Empower women to connect with themselves and their sisters in a deeper, fuller way.

We are conditioned by outside forces such as the media to focus on others needs, judge our bodies harshly, and disconnect from our intuition. This retreat gives us the opportunity to explore our sacred feminine side and other parts of ourselves that we might not feel comfortable with in mixed company.

In our fourth gathering we will be exploring and connecting with different Goddess archetypes. Working with archetypes gives us a road map to explore these aspects within ourselves and to activate those energies to support us in our growth.

If you are craving a weekend of exploration, rejuvenation, and celebration then you will want to join Cheryl and Erica as they hold sacred space for you to create a stronger connection with yourself, the earth, and other women. 
You will be participating in energetic and creative activities, meditations, and so much more that will help you to reconnect to the most sacred part of you.

outdoor cabin experience. Accommodations will be chosen on a first registered-first choice basis. If you are coming together with friends, please let us know so you can be assigned the same room/cabin. This is a place to disconnect from electronics and you are encouraged to leave your phone in your room/cabin. With the exception of 1 cabin which has a composting toilet and outdoor shower, ALL other accommodations have their own indoor facilities!
