Goddess Rising (tm) 

Our retreats are life-changing events. Big statement. Right?  Kind of gutsy to put that out there but it's true.  It's true because I transform as well. 

Every. Single. Time.

No picture, promo, article, or testimonial can convey what happens for real at one of the collectives.  Not even your best , most trusted confidant , grabbing you by the shoulders,  shaking you with " OMG!!  You HAVE TO DO THIS!! ".  Nope. 

It takes something else. You have to trust your inner voice, step off and leap IN to get what goes on. They propel you to the best places and connect you in ways you can't believe.  

Believe it.  

Sing It

“I can’t recommend Maricarmen’s GR retreat highly enough. Maricarmen creates an intimate and empowering experience for women in need of a week of self-care away from the tumult of every day life. You’ll get a good mix of powerfully exhausting asana practice, soothing restorative sessions, delicious, healthy food and glorious sunshine. AND… the outings away from the retreat center will blow your mind! I mean it! The women I met on the retreat last year feel like family to me now. They are a continued source of strength and comfort and fun.” – Lesley R .
