Is it time to awaken your Goddess and celebrate your spirit with like-minded Goddesses? Is this your season to step into your wisdom and intuitive knowledge of Peace, Love, and Joy?

Imagine a weekend at the magical Hope Springs Institute, a rustic sanctuary in the Appalachian foothills.

Goddess practices. Healthy Food. Yoga. Energy Work. Meditation. Breathwork. Sound Bath. Adventures.

Take this chance to align with your Goddess and celebrate your spirit with like-minded Goddesses. Let us dedicate this weekend to Goddess rituals to open the mind, soften the heart and free the spirit. 

Collectively, we will explore the Goddess’s life as a state of energy that extends beyond the noise and influences of daily life. We will hear and be heard on the ways we enjoy being a fully-aligned Goddess in today’s world. 

Indulge in walking along 3 ponds and on hiking trails around 130 acres of pristine wilderness. Eat gourmet farm-to-table meals. Sit by the outdoor fire pit.

Get to experience lying down in a sound bath, meditating around the 11-circuit labyrinth, connecting to the Goddess at the Serpent Mound, and more. It’s happening – and we’d love for you to be a part of it!

The weekend will include guided energy work, sound baths, breathwork, and movement as paths into the divine self.  

Our retreat provides the Awakening Goddess with a safe and nurturing environment to grow and practice the way of the divine feminine.

“I had an amazing experience at the 2022 Goddess Awakening Retreat!!
It was truly a beautiful weekend.
Hope Springs was the best setting for the event. The land was magical, the rooms comfortable and clean, and the staf
f was friendly and accommodating.
Turning Point Yoga and Wellness provided a safe place to celebrate the Goddess within while enjoying the company of other women seeking spiritual connections. I have made new friends for life. The energy work, breath-work and cacao ceremony in the Spirit House was my favorite experiences.”

Hello Goddess! I am so happy you are here!

My journey began years ago when I started learning about our energetic system, essential oils, energy healing, intuitive practices, yoga, and meditation to name a few…

Through my unique healing techniques, professional training, intuitive work, and assistance from higher realms, I have assisted in clearing away layers of suppressed emotions, and energy blockages, facilitating healing on all levels.

As a Wellness Coach and Spiritual Guide, I have been delivering life-changing transformations to people seeking Peace, Love and Joy.

It is no accident that you are here right now reading this. Chances are you may be searching for the Goddess within you. She is the version of you who has the power to embrace change, tap into a deeper sense of well-being, or a desire to clear the “old”. Whatever the reason may be, I am here to guide you!

I offer private energy sessions for those that are interested in scheduling with me. This service is available upon request for an additional charge.

I cannot wait to meet you and share this life-changing experience with you!
