Awakening the 4 Goddesses Within Your Retreat

April 15, 2017 - April 22, 2017

Embrace your female energies and cyclic nature, and learn practical ways to create wellbeing, success and fulfilment in all areas of your life – at work, in the home and in the bedroom.

Do you feel that something is missing deep within you?

 Does your heart and femininity cry out for expression in your life and career?

 Do you wish to discover how to use your innate feminine super powers – whatever your age?

 Do you want to learn the ancient women’s secret to happiness, career success and sexual, spiritual and creative fulfillment?

This amazing 7-day retreat in the beautiful feminine surroundings of natural Costa Rica empowers all women who wish to understand the natural benefits and powerful gifts that lie in their inherent cyclic nature. Discover how to apply this knowledge in practical ways to create a uniquely female approach to success, work, love, life and sex.
Join international teachers and authors Miranda Gray and Vanessa Castro on an experiential journey to discover yourself as a woman and delve deep into to your beautiful and amazing authentic female nature.

As women, we travel through each month reflecting the cycles of the Moon, the Earth, the tides and the cycle of life in a pattern that ebbs and flows. We walk a path of changing energies and levels of perception, and yet we are often unconscious of these changes, or we fight against them to meet the expectations of modern life. When we become aware of our cyclic nature then our life changes. We begin to walk a female path of happiness, success, centeredness, creativity, spirituality and love.

This retreat is a unique opportunity to relax and be cradled in a supportive female space where you can grow in sacredness, in friendship and in sisterhood, and take this sacredness back into your everyday life.
You will immerse yourself in the experience of the 4 female archetype principles that lie within you and learn to recognize them in yourself, in your life, in the women around you, in the beautiful nature of Costa Rica and even in the delicious food that is served!
Over the course of the week you will integrate this new perception of your cyclic nature so that you can take it home to share with your loved ones, partners, kids, and co-workers.

Retreat Facilitators

Miranda Gray

She is the originator of the Worldwide Womb Blessing a growing female spiritual movement that is present in over 130 countries.

Her experience as an author, artist, healer and businesswoman, teamed with a consciousness born of actively living in harmony with her cyclic nature as a woman, gives Miranda a unique understanding; an understanding of what it means to be female in a modern world that does not support female energies and female cycles.

Through her writing, talks and workshops Miranda actively helps women to discover their authentic individual femininity and spirituality. Her down-to-earth approach to spirituality offers women a life-changing guide to living in tune with their true nature and empowers them to embrace and express all aspects of their female energies.

“Women are like the Moon, we change gradually from day to day. You never see the whole of the cycle; you can only ever see one phase.”

Miranda is a passionate writer, spiritual teacher and facilitator of workshops on the cyclic nature of women and women’s spirituality and energies. She supports each woman’s uniqueness, encouraging and guiding them to optimise their own cyclic energies to create fulfilment, wellbeing, goal achievement and work enhancement.

Vanessa Castro (Vanessa Suzaku)

Vanessa is a lunar coach for women in business (using the menstrual cycle to its best effect), an international women’s wellness workshop and retreat facilitator – and a firewalk instructor!

She believes now is the time to redefine womanhood in a way that honors all the phases of the life cycles of women and mother earth.

Her passion for empowering women has led her to travel the world and to learn techniques that will support women in our journeys back to our authentic feminine nature, using the innate tools of the menstrual cycle and menopause.

During her travels Vanessa was identified by Shihan Ryu Shinzo and Shizen Do as a teacher who carries the ancestral wisdom of the Phoenix. For 18017 years the Shizen Do tradition (most prominent in Japan) prophesied the return of the Phoenix wisdom through a soul incarnate in the Americas. Remarkably, Vanessa’s life story mirrored the prophesy written 18017 years ago and through a series of tests and rituals she was anointed as Suzaku, the guardian of fire and love.

Before becoming a wisdom teacher, Vanessa helped to create the evaluation system to rate world’s top purpose-driven organization, known as GameChangers 500. During this time she became passionate about raising a new paradigm for working women, through honoring the unique gifts of the feminine in the business world.
