Connecting to Goddess Consciousness
The Divine Feminine has been represented across the world as a collection of archetypal energies, typically expressed as Goddesses. Goddesses express qualities that are nurturing, open and receptive, as well as mystical, magical, transformative and powerful.
Goddess Energy in Our Lives
Goddesses can help us in our everyday lives as women by connecting us to the transpersonal and sacred, as well as by teaching us what the feminine looks like when it is empowered and in service to the world. During our Soul Spa, we'll connect deeply and personally to the energies of the Divine Feminine and to the wisdom, guidance and powers of the Goddess Within.

What Soul Spa participants say about previous Soul Spas:
"I travelled 6 hours from the country to attend this day and was so glad I did. This was a day away from the hectic pace of a home and business and all it brings. A day where permission was given to “JUST BE”. Thank you Shushann and Gemma for facilitating it with a passion for women and with open hearts and open minds." Tanya
"Gemma and Shushann, thank you for introducing me to the concept of a one-day retreat. Since it was my first time indulging in a day for myself, I was a little hesitant. Upon arrival I was greeted by other women who were about to do the same thing. Within minutes of entering the room I felt I'd made the right decision. Everyone was so friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I am looking forward to the next retreat." Tara
