The Embody Retreat is a gathering for those who know that we are in the midst of great global change, a time that has been prophesied about, and that WE are "the ones we've been waiting for".
We are the way-showers, healers, light workers, midwives, wise ones, light-bearers, and priestesses. 
We know that our medicine is to fully embrace and Embody our humanity - in all of its juicy, glorious, perfect mess.


We understand that there is sacredness in every aspect of human existence.


And we understand this vibration is one of the essential elements needed to heal humanity and therefore heal our planet.






Embodiment means to have gnosis (direct personal experience) integrated into your physical human body in the Here & Now.


Inner Union is a sacred dance between our masculine & feminine energies, our light & shadow, our humanity & divinity.


During the Embody Retreat we engage in somatic practices like yoga, breath, sound, dance, connection with others, and connection with nature to embody the Inner Sacred Union teachings, transmissions and activations.
HEAVEN ON EARTH is possible in the here and now through our precious human bodies and through relationships with one another.
The Embody Retreat shows us that to be alive in human form is a great blessing, a great mystery, and an opportunity for self-realization.



Last year during the 2023 Embody Retreat we felt the “Brothers of the Rose”– or the Sacred Masculine counterpart to the Isis-Magdalene Rose Lineage – with us very strongly on the etheric plane. We felt their protection and love for us as we opened, healed, danced, sang, laughed and cried our way to Wholeness.
This year I was guided to invite “Brothers of the Rose” in the flesh to support and contribute to the Embody Retreat. This is a first as I have always had (only) female guest teachers! The men who will guest teach this year embody the Divine Masculine principle, as well as embody and bow to the Divine Feminine principle. We are certainly in for a treat!

“When making an investment, I ask myself, " Will my life change for the better with this investment?"

If I feel or hear a Yes, then I go for it... and if Big change is coming, the "Yes" usually has elements of excitement and terror mixed in! 


The Venus Mysteries teach that HEAVEN ON EARTH is possible in the here and now through our precious human body and through sacred relationships with one another.
This year at the annual Embody Retreat ( Sat 1/20 & Sun 1/21) you will also have the option to join an opening ceremony on Friday evening.
Optional Friday evening opening ceremony includes a bonfire release Ceremony and Breathwork to peel away the layers of our subconscious and prepare for the Venus Mysteries of Love, Beauty & Sacred Union shared throughout the weekend.
Saturday contains teachings, yoga, dance, a hike and workshop at the magnificent waterfall, workshops on Healing the Wounds of the Masculine, Egyptian & Native American wisdom, and more.
On Sunday we continue to dive into the Mysteries of Inner Sacred Union through teachings and more somatic & embodiment practices (yoga, dance, meditation, etc.).


The Isis-Magdalene-Rose Mysteries are a branch of the Venus Path and are unique in their devotion to Love and Sacred Relationships. Relationships are the “yoga” or “medicine” of this mystical tradition.
If you align with this path you will probably find that Love, the desire to Love, the desire for Sacred Relationships, and the desire for deep connection or Oneness is central to your being.
