SCROLL DOWN

.


Geia Sou, Koukla!

(That means: Hello, Beautiful! in Greek :) 

If you're here right now, I bet you're needing a bit of a break. An escape from the hustle, demands, questions and obligations that are constantly flung your way.

Sound about right?

This is not because you don't like your life.

But maybe things haven't felt as fulfilling as you'd expect... and underlying nagging feeling has left you wondering what you may be missing or doing wrong. 

The answer to that question is... Nothing.

In a world of social media and constant connection, it's easy to feel distant from others and craving more connection.

And although chat, facetime, zoom and google are great tools for speaking to someone "face to face" it simply isn't the same as clinking tiny cups of espresso together while laughing so hard you're crying.

You feel me?

Women are designed to function with the support of a tribe of other women.

 Greece Retreat, September 2016

Greece Retreat, September 2016

Connecting with other women, like you, has nothing to do with business connections or networking.

It's stepping into a sacred space of understanding, love, compassion and healing with other women that get you.

There's no question that allowing yourself to receive the support of a tribe will be critical to your success in all areas of your life.

If you allow yourself to say YES to this once in a lifetime experience, the healing, community and love will last long after the retreat is over. And the relationships you cultivate will change you forever and last a lifetime.

A personal retreat is more than just a trip. 

It's an experience that will heal you from the inside out, make you believe in miracles again and most importantly, a space for you to safely and authentically learn to embrace your personal power -- so you are loved for exactly who you are.

P10A2311.jpg

My name is Felicia and I love helping women, like you, step into your power, so you can fully embrace your important life purpose.

If your heart has led you to this page, it's time to ask yourself if you're ready to deepen your connection with your heart and your intuition by embracing your feminine power.

As a woman, you manifest by honoring your hearts desires. It's the gut feeling and heart flutter that speaks to you when you need it most. If you listen to and act on it, you'll experience love, success and alignment like you've never known before.

 

The Stepping Into Your Power Retreat becomes your sacred incubation space to turn inward, learn to listen to your heart and emerge revitalized, awakened and ready to spread your wings! 

In just 7 days of deep healing, personal reflection, feminine connection, life changing transformation, mouthwatering food and blissful relaxation you will:

* Learn to live courageously and vulnerably by listening to and honoring your heart so you can embrace your power and attract your highest destiny

* Heal and Transform decades of Anscestral energy and blocks so you can embrace your future with confidence

* Discover how your heart and gut communicate with you and how to make choices that are aligned with them, every time

* Learn to listen to your body signals and how she communicates with you

* Experience how it feels when you allow yourself to receive from others with grace

You'll return home renewed, expanded and healed, armed with your strong intuition, deeply feeling heart and unwavering confidence in yourself.

One of the strongest forces in the Universe is a Woman in alignment with her mission

Experience


Experience


ONE OF A KIND retreat experience

Rather than a structured, rigid schedule, I've opted for a more relaxed, cultural and energetic experience for our group. My intention is for us to have an open, deeply transformative 7 days together touring Greece, with healing and activities interwoven throughout.

Some excursions will be relaxing, so you have a safe space to integrate the energy with your fellow goddesses. Others will be chalk full of information and history, so you can process and find your place within the story and determine what this means for you and your life.


The Ancient Ruins are more powerful than we realize

Having toured the Ancient sites myself, I can attest to the power and energetic shift that you will experience the moment you arrive to the site. You may be flooded with memories and visions of your past lives or simply feel internal strength, power and courage suddenly rise up within you. The ancient ruins have much to offer and their gifts keep appearing long after the tour is over.

I've taken great care to select my top two favorite tours near Athens because of their incredible energy, historical significance and their ability to transform you from within. For our relaxation and integration time, I've opted for a truly special event in Santorini.

  Acropolis, Athens Greece. Photo cred:  Anastasia Giouzelis (my amazing cousin) took this while she and I visited the site in 2015.

Acropolis, Athens Greece. Photo cred: Anastasia Giouzelis (my amazing cousin) took this while she and I visited the site in 2015.

Experience #1:

Tour of the Acropolis, Athens and Admission to the new Acropolis Museum (self guided tour)

The Acropolis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Words can't possibly describe what you'll experience when you set foot on this sacred land.

This great sanctuary of ancient Athens is dedicated primarily to its patron, the goddess Athena. We'll take a guided tour from a seasoned tour guide so we capture every detail.


Experience #2:

Tour of the Archaeological site of Delphi, Greece with Sanctuaries dedicated to Apollo and Athena

Delphi is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and second in importance to the Acropolis. 

This was home of the Oracle that advised Apollo and many other important figures in Greek history. There is no better place in the world to tap into the energy of your intuition, than here at Delphi.

This is also home to the temple of Apollo, the ancient theater, the stadium, the sanctuary of Athena Pronaia.

Experience #3: A Sunset Santorini Caldera Catamaran Cruise with dinner and drinks included

This event is for fun, bonding with your fellow goddesses and integrating your experiences.

I can't imagine a better way to enjoy the island of Santorini and the beauty of Greece than from a catamaran during a dinner cruise at sunset. 

Simply magical!

You'll also have time built in to most days to do your own shopping, exploring or relaxing on the beach.

And little surprises along the way...

You will also have access to other experiences in your free time such as parasailing over the Aegean (a 5 minute walk from our accommodations!). These can be booked through the resort's front desk or directly with a local beach vendor of your choosing.

Excursion DETAILS

Physical / Travel Requirements and Details

Both the Acropolis and Delphi tours involve sometimes strenuous walking up hills, stairs, unpaved paths and sometimes wet and slippery locations during high heat. Please let us know if you require any special accommodations for you to be able to fully enjoy the tour(s) and we will do our absolute best to accommodate. 

The trip from Athens to Delphi is 3-4 hours by air-conditioned bus, one way. Attendees must be prepared to be on the bus for approximately 6-8 hours in one day. The Delphi tour is approximately 10 hours total including travel time.

Sunset Santorini Caldera Catamaran Cruise leaves at approximately 2:30 p.m. and returns home after sunset. It includes dinner and drinks.

WHY GREECE?

The Greeks live for simple pleasures. Great company, deep conversation, sea, sun and delicious homemade food shared family style. They welcome everyone with open arms. This is called Philotimo.

"Philotimo is a Greek word that is without definition, but impacts the world beyond imagination. The word philotimo comes from the Greek root words “filos,” meaning friend, and “timi,” meaning honor. The meaning of philotimo extends far beyond the words friend and honor."

I couldn't imagine a better place to welcome you home, back to your heart.

    Food


    Food


    FOOD

    The Greeks believe in bonding through food and meals are a time when individuals come together as family sharing stories, laughter and joy. We'll use this time to share our experiences, triumphs and insights during a magical 7 days together.

    IMG_9768 2.JPG

    It wouldn't be a proper Greek experience without authentic Greek cuisine to look forward to! Whether we're eating at our hotel or stopping by a local restaurant, I can assure you that Greek meals never disappoint! With a large variety of Greek meals being naturally vegetarian or vegan, there are plenty of options to choose from. It's difficult to "guarantee" gluten free, as gluten free options are not as readily available, especially on the islands. Please plan accordingly if this is one of your dietary restrictions. Past guests have mentioned that the gluten in Europe does not negatively affect them like it does in other parts of the world, but we can't make any guarantees.

    Please review the agenda for a complete list of which meals are included.

    It's time to say yes to yourself

    I understand there may be a little voice in your head that's reminding you of all the reasons you can't up and go to Greece. It's probably the same voice that urges you to abandon your meditation practice, or to stay in a relationship or job that makes you unhappy.

    One thing that I know for certain is the power of saying YES. Yes to yourself, the experience, the healing and making yourself a priority...

    There are always going to be hundreds of reasons that you can't or shouldn't invest in a trip like this, but what will it cost you to miss out on this experience?

    It will be another year of not following your dreams, not listening to your intuition and not making the important changes necessary to prepare for your expansive life. A life you deserve that is waiting for you to take that very first step so it can bless you with everything you've ever wanted! 

    It's too painful to say no to yourself again and put yourself on hold for another year when your heart is calling you to make these changes now. Let today be the first day of your alignment and the next phase of your journey! 

    If you would like to explore this together, book a call with me and let's chat. There is absolutely no obligation.


    All rooms in Athens and Santorini are double occupancy. This means that you will be sharing a room with another member of the group. There will be separate beds.

    How does pairing work? I'm personally interviewing everyone that is interested in the retreat to make sure the integrity, intention and alignment is right for everyone. I will put everyones name in a bowl and the Universe will select your perfect roommate. There is no doubt in my mind that you will be matched with someone that you most need to be with during this retreat. You will no doubt have a life long friend and tribe member after sharing sacred space together.

    All bookings include 7 nights accommodation, meals (not all meals are included, please see agenda for details) and all program sessions and activities. Cost does not include travel to and from Athens. Prices are in US dollars.

    Space is extremely limited

    This sacred sisterhood is limited to 9 women only - and only 6 spots remain!  My retreats do sell out, so if this is something that is calling to your heart, set up a chat for us to discuss why you'd be the perfect fit!

    PRICING

    I've made it as easy as possible for you to dip your toes in those sparkling Mediterranean waters.

    TOTAL COST

    Early bird pricing FOR DOUBLE OCCUPANCY:
    $3,495

    Early bird Deadline is August 20, 2018

    Price goes up to $3,995 on August 21, no exceptions.

    Payment plan available and can be discussed during our chat.

    INCLUDES HEALING PROGRAMS, TOURS, ACTIVITIES, ACCOMMODATION AND MOST MEALS (SEE AGENDA FOR DETAILS) *flight to and from Athens, GR not included

    *If for any reason, you're unable to join us, please note that there are no refunds. You may use what you have paid towards another program, future retreat or any available program that is open to work directly with Felicia.

    I'm looking forward to personally welcoming you to Greece, this September
