Women’s retreat: Empowering the Divine Feminine

The beauty of the Divine Feminine

The Divine Feminine is the expression of the ancient Mother in all of her forms. From this space creativity, compassion, intuition, and collaboration flow endlessly. When in balance, you can feel the potency of this force through vulnerability, grace, courage, humility, and strength. To connect to the divine feminine is to become fully aligned to the sacred light within. In this space, the heart remains open to allow spirit to guide, the mind does not interrupt the flow of love, and you are no longer looking outside of yourself for fulfillment. Once rested in the womb of the mother, there is a deep remembrance that all life is connected, nothing is separate, and every moment is an opportunity to feel this beauty. This radiance and bliss create a deep peace in the heart and the ultimate surrender reveals all truth.

How does the Empowering the Divine Feminine Retreat look like?

This retreat is beautifully designed to allow space for sisterhood as well as sacred time with self and these intelligent plant allies. During these 21 days, there will be specific containers curated for processing and integrating your experiences. Some of the time will be spent sharing, connecting, and co-creating with the earth and one another. We will be embodying the divine feminine through dance workshops, art therapy, mantra, and vocal activation. There will also be space for us to become more quiet and internal through guided meditation, sound healing, yoga, womb clearing, and Clarity Breathwork. The second week will be in silence so each of us can commune more deeply with the wisdom of these plants and the potency of the Shipibo lineage that will be holding us.


“And may all Mothers know that they are loved, And may all Sisters know that they are Strong, And may all daughters know that they are Worthy, That the Fire of the Goddess may burn on ”

Divine Feminine: why come together as a Sisterhood?

In many tribes and traditions, women come together to pray, share stories, sing, and dance. These sacred gatherings create a strong container that dissolves the tendency for comparison among sisterhood. The focus is more on holding one another in hardships, pain, joy, and celebrations. This establishes an incredibly safe space so that each woman can speak her fullest truth and be heard completely. Due to the different lifestyles of today, many of us have not had the opportunity to establish, grow, and nurture our relationships with other women in this depth. Knowing the importance of this, Adelina and Kara are dedicated to bringing women together once again in this ancient way of Divine Feminine. They will be weaving their many gifts as sisters to ignite the flame for the divine feminine. We as women individually are incredibly powerful but together we are a force of love that can bring healing to all of life.

Noya Rao, Tree of Light

Noya Rao which is otherwise known as “The Tree of Light” or “Camino a la Verdad” – The Path of Truth is a mythical plant, of which there are only three in the entire Amazon Basin. Noya Rao has belonged to and been used in sacred ceremony by the Mahua Shipibo traditions for centuries. Noya Rao is known for its capacity to activate intuition in the dietero(a), promote mental clarity and to increase one’s capacity for organized thought. Coupling a Master Plant Dieta with spiritual practices heightens Noya Rao’s capacity to promote profound healing and to reveal important insights to the student during the Women’s Retreat: Empowering the Divine Feminine.

Divine Feminine: reconnecting to the womb

Reclaiming our power as women begin in the center of our sacred womb. The place where all of life is born from. By coming to work with Juanita and these sacred plants, you are saying yes to cleaning out your temple body. Through the womb, you can clear all of the old habits, patterns, and conditioning that have held you back. This is not just for you personally, but for all of the woman in your lineage that have walked before you and for all those yet to be born. We are in a potent time where we get to align the Throat-Heart-Womb connection in the feminine body. Our sensual energy then becomes a creative life force for change transforming karma into dharma. When the divine feminine is grounded and balanced the reclamation of power comes from the heart, in total alignment, purity, and balance. From this space, all of our songs can be sung and are dances can be danced.


The role of our facilitators, who all have extensive experience in sacred plant medicines and various psychological and creative therapies is to support you to locate the courage you need to move through the difficulty. Their primary role is to ensure your wellbeing. Our facilitators will create a loving, compassionate space in which all participants feel safe, respected and free to express themselves authentically.
