Costa Rica>Goddess Activation: A Journey Towards Wholeness in Costa Rica with Katie Wells

Feel your sacred wholeness and embrace all of the parts of yourself on this amazing 7-day retreat to the shores of Costa Rica! Center and restore after the holidays to move into a fuller you. Experience life-enhancing femininity and supportive sisterhood as we begin to embrace all of the parts of ourselves. Bathed in acceptance, we travel through group sessions pairing an archetypal goddess to each chakra. We explore the grounded goddess, the sensual goddess, the fierce goddess, the compassionate goddess, the creative goddess, the wise goddess, and the cosmic unity goddess. This effective curriculum has been developed and shared for eight years, offering a journey into embodied wholeness as we come home to ourselves with more love.

The Workshops
Chakras and goddesses are powerful ways into the body, psyche, and inner divinity. They assist us in honoring our strengths and accepting our imbalances as we transform them into empowerment. These sessions are skillfully held, weaving intuitive dance, yoga, meditation, breathwork, sound healing, group sharing circles, journals, song, and self-care practices.

We welcome female-identified people of all colors and faiths who seek connection and growth.⁣⁣

Details

Day 1

Get to know your new sisters and begin activating your Root chakra

Feel the warm, universal embrace of Costa Rica as you step off of the plane and into your week-long wellness retreat. You'll be transferred to the Goddess Garden, an eco-resort in beautiful Cahuita. Watch as the gentle flow of the tide brings in positive energy from the ocean, inviting you to look inwards and transform yourself. After checking into the accommodation and taking a moment to marvel at Costa Rica's wonders, attend an opening ceremony where you'll be introduced to the concepts that create the structure for our retreat. Then, after dinner, we'll have our first workshop, a session combining movement, meditation, reflection, and connection. We'll be turning our focus towards our Root chakras, connecting with Gaia and reclaiming the temple of the body. By arriving present in your body, grounding with the earth, and establishing comfort with the group, you will be led in a process of calming the nervous system as stress and tension fall away. A sound healing session will cap off the day, affording us time to wind down and prepare for rest.

Day 2

Begin moving upwards through your chakras with workshops and group conversations

Good morning! Rise to an amazing view with the sunlight glinting off of the waves and head to breakfast. Savor a nourishing meal before a sharing circle where you can discuss your feelings and begin setting intentions for the day. It's then time for our morning workshop where we will continue our work with our Root chakras before transitioning upwards to our Sacral chakras, invoking the goddess Oshun. Oshun governs the waters and sensuality, so we will hold this class on the beach and center the end of our workshop around sacred sensuality and flow. Staying on the beach, we will further connect with Oshun and our Sacral chakras as we expand our study of flow into the world around us. Admire the waves and the poetic lilt of the coastline before returning to the resort for dinner and a fire pit conversation that will introduce us to our Solar Plexus chakra and the fiery goddess Sekhmet, igniting your self-worth and helping you discover and honor your boundaries.

Day 3

Build your self-worth before blossoming into compassion

Today is all about the Self and how it relates to the greater world that surrounds you. Our post-breakfast morning workshop will focus on power yoga, once again allowing us feel our power and strength as we hone in on our Solar Plexus chakras and learn how to uphold our boundaries. After lunch, you'll have a bit of free time before our evening workshop that transitions to our Heart chakras. This workshop will incorporate sacred dance of moving from the heart as well as a guided self-soothing meditation in candle light, calling in Kwan Yin, the goddess of compassion. Discover a sense of deep self-compassion before we bring that compassion outwards and feel the same level of care for our surroundings and the divine universe that we inhabit.

Day 4

Share your thoughts, discover authenticity, and express yourself through song

Cahuita comes to life as the sun shines down upon the retreat. Fuel your body and spirit with breakfast before our morning worksop that continues our work with the Heart chakra as we use the form of Authentic Movement to open our hearts as a loving witness. This workshop will also double as a sharing circle, allowing you to turn your compassion into words as you share your thoughts and feelings with the group. Explore or rest with some free time in the afternoon before we have an evening workshop built around the Throat chakra and the goddess Saraswati. We will discover more of our authentic selves with playful games and journaling. In an environment surrounded by supportive sisters, you'll be empowered to speak your truth without judgment. Then, under shimmering stars, we'll meet around the fire pit to sing songs, laugh, and finish stepping into authenticity.

Day 5

Enjoy a free day before an evening 3rd eye workshop

The schedule for today is slightly different. For the majority of the day, we'll have free time so that you can absorb the lessons of the retreat and give yourself the care you need. Use this time to integrate all that we have discovered and experienced. You're free to explore the nearby town or the local tourist attractions as you journey through introspection. You're free to go wherever you're called. It's not until after dinner that we will have a workshop. Under the night sky, we'll begin to activate our 3rd eyes, deepening into intuition and gaining an understanding of our souls' paths. We will go on a shamanic journey to meet Hecate, the goddess of wisdom, as she helps us to cut away what no longer serves us and lights our way with new clarity. We will also participate in blindfolded dancing to go deep within our inner vision.

Day 6

Activate your Crown chakra and celebrate the retreat with a goddess party

It's the final full day of our Costa Rican wellness retreat, and we're going to begin with a restorative yoga workshop. Through meditative relaxation and deep poses, you'll feel a strong connection between your mind and body, furthering the work we've already done. Lunch, free time, and dinner will then lead us to an evening workshop based around the final chakra, the Crown chakra. Invoking the all-powerful goddess Shakti, we will expand into cosmic unity, feeling one with everything and enjoying a sensation of absolute harmony. The joy of this retreat peaks with a festive evening Goddess Party as we celebrate the progress we've made as sisters. We dress up, eat cake, laugh, play, and step into our goddess selves!

Day 7

Complete your transformation and head home

We've finally reached the conclusion of our Costa Rican escape. With your journey through the chakras complete, all that is left is to wrap up our experience with a restorative yoga class and a closing ceremony. Allow gratitude to course through you as you say goodbye to your newly-found sisters and the amazing vistas of Cahuita. With that, you'll be transferred to the airport to fly home. Safe travels, and thanks so much for joining us!
