A Sedona Women's Retreat
In May of 2016 a group of dynamic women came together for a weekend in beautiful Sedona, Arizona. They spent their time bonding in sisterhood, supporting one another's goals and reveling in the spectacular beauty that Mother Earth has to offer in the Red Rock region of Arizona.
Lifelong friendships were formed. Mystical experiences were had. And the support, communication and sisterhood continues.
I had the honor of facilitating the retreat for these amazing goddesses. Each woman in presence was given a personal divination, connection to goddesses (mythological as well as her own inner goddess) for help in her endeavors. All of the workshops and exercises facilitated insights for each woman, uncovering and removing any blocks to her success.
Kelly had this to say about her experience - "I came to Ren�e's Goddess Divine retreat. I just wanted to Re-Set and I found SO much more! She facilitated a HUGE spiritual foundation that I just can't wait to experience for the rest of my life! So, if you get a chance to come visit her, Do it!"
So, here's your chance! The next Goddess Divine Retreat will take place November 11th through November 14th, 2016. We will share four days and three nights of immersion in the Divine. I would be so thrilled to host you in my next group of Goddesses! Let's share the sacred sisterhood together!

|Boldly Going Nowhere Retreat|
From Striving to Arriving
The Boldly Going Nowhere movement was created by Shannon Plummer and Bob Sima. It represents the challenge question that we so often ask ourselves throughout our lives, "What am I doing?" Not in a literal sense, but in the grander consciousness. So often, the answer is simple, "I need to slow down before I go any further." The tagline - From Striving to Arriving - was borrowed from a Wayne Dyer presentation to remind us that we cannot arrive at, or enjoy, this moment when we are constantly striving to get to the next. Boldly Going Nowhere has a clear intention: to bring you to HERE. Whatever "here" needs to be for you. Shannon and Bob will combine stimulating discussion, creative silences, inspiring activities, and soul-stirring music to create an experience to remind you that nowhere is now-here.
