Sacred Womxn’s Retreat in Ubud, Bali: Testimonials
A Balinese paradise adventure where practical magic birthed a sisterhood and amplified the nurturing strength and momentum of my self-exploration all the while nourished by Jessa’s insightful and concierge guidance.
In Bali our collective energy resonated between us into a higher vibration. Our joint intentions holding each other in sacred love as our deepest vulnerabilities dissolved. It’s in that resonance of collective circle that the fog of our personal resistance cleared into flame of deepest personal inspiration. Perhaps it’s the hyper dimensionality of higher vibration of loving kindness that moves the spiritual physics in all of us. The transformation is extraordinary: a sense of oneness – serenity – knowingness and bliss.
Jessa has the travel experience and organization to thoroughly prepare you for an international getaway to Bali. She’s also an intuitive, innovative leader who will help you make the most of your travels. She will introduce you to this lush island and its inspiring culture with direct and informed experiences.
Jessa recognized and honored the unique perspective of each woman on the retreat. She made it clear that each of us women, with varying life histories and intentions for the trip, were welcomed and appreciated. The itinerary she created for our week together and the assistance she provided in our individual planning of our days before and after the retreat was immensely helpful in navigating our visit on this exciting island, but her humble personality and spirited heart is what really guided us through this whole journey for body, mind and spirit.
Every recommendation I took from Jessa was fantastic. I was able to experience a peaceful contrast between the bustling city life and the soothing nature of Bali. It was really special to learn about many of the sacred places and rituals directly from the Balinese through Jessa’s great community connections. I was left in awe of this experience. Jessa truly knows how to make a retreat a lifelong memory!
Jessa read our astrology birth charts before the retreat and wove our astrology into the sessions to illuminate how we might more deeply understand our soul’s purpose and our unique path of growth in this lifetime. It was astounding to all of us how profound the readings were. The Evolutionary Astrology combined with oracle cards, dream work and rituals made for a deep and resounding magic in our sessions. It was so personal and unique for each of us. It was as if the places where we had been stuck or answers we were seeking to questions long asked were magically revealed. It was profound. All of the experiences on this retreat supported the recovery of a natural sense of wonder and love of my life. I felt a release into a purer way of being. This retreat was simply life-changing. An experience of a lifetime.
Sacred Immersion in the Wilds Womxn’s Retreat – April 27–29, 2018: Testimonials
I was met by a group of 8 women who I knew little or nothing about, but on some instinctual level we were all there for the same reason. To go deep, reflect and share in the ritual space of divine feminine love. And that’s where Jessa comes in, her soulful gift to facilitate an intimate circle of women enabled each of us to safely let go of long-held boundaries and welcome our most vulnerable selves to surface. Creating a pathway of immense healing.
With insightful understanding of Evolutionary Astrology, Jessa helped us embody the Full Moon nuances in Scorpio as we embraced our earthly connection to the Sun in Taurus. Much of our time together was spent connecting with our surroundings in silence… We hiked through untouched forest to the cliffs of the St. Croix River where we stayed for a while and fully absorbed the nuances of mother nature. All of our vegetarian meals, which we prepared in our spacious cabin kitchen with high-vibrational ingredients, were moments to reflect and honor our connection to our primal being. In the evening we gathered under the Full Moon in Scorpio with a bonfire and ritual to cleanse ourselves from negative past energy followed by a purifying Sauna. So amazing!
The next day, before our closing ceremony, Jessa invited us to create individual rituals of intention to honor and celebrate our time together. The giving and receiving of these rituals was profoundly heart opening. I chose to lay face to the sun on one of the walking bridges over the winding creek while each woman blessed me with poetic words of wisdom and anointed my body with crystals and personal pieces from our circle altar. A moment of passionate love of Everything!
Seriously there was so much beauty and love compacted in this short weekend, I left feeling like I had known these women for lifetimes… and perhaps I have.
