GODDESS ILLUMINATED 2024
COMPLETE IMMERSIVE EMPOWERMENT EXPERIENCE
Goddess Illuminated Retreat is a week long version of my signature Goddess Session. I created this as a complete immersive experience of the stuff we touch the surface and is still so transformative in The Goddess Session. I’ve taken all of these concepts and put them into a week long experience that culminates with your mini Goddess Session. See yourself through the lens of the goddess, transformed and able to express all your Illuminated light with confidence and ease.

This retreat requires an adventurous spirit, go with the flow attitude, and an open mind. Although all beautiful and luxurious, some of the accommodation options are more of a “camping” style. Attending retreats away from home is always an adventure and getting comfortable with that from the beginning will create a more pleasant experience. That said, we are here to make the journey as comfortable for you as possible.
Accessibility: We will be walking and hiking on uneven ground for a number of our outings, so please take that into consideration when booking.
THIS ALL INCLUSIVE RETREAT INCLUDES THESE EVENTS PLUS..
So much magic to co create together as we journey together for...
Womb clearing ceremony
Daily Movement practices
Daily Nourishing Organic Meals
Your own mini Goddess Session & Portrait! (valued at $999!)
Hi I’m Melissa Robin!
I understand the struggle of self-acceptance; as a person who has body dysmorphia and experienced mental illness, I know how difficult it is to relax and express yourself fully and be SEEN. Integrating nature-based somatic practices, meditation, and rituals will bring clarity, insight, and energy to your system. The Goddess Illuminated experience becomes the path to your transformation. As a Temple Body Facilitator I’m here to support you on your journey and document the process to provide you with powerful reminders that you can use to tap into your divine power in the future.

June is one of my favorite months in Costa Rica! The forest is so lush and flowers are beautiful. In June for a typical day ranges from a high of 79°F (26°C) to a low of 69°F (20°C). Some would describe it as pleasantly warm, humid but cool. Costa Rica is known for rain so we may get a little sprinkle. Bring your raincoat or an umbrella if you don't love a warm jungle rain storm :)
This retreat is quite physically active. Between daily movement sessions, moving around the twenty-acred retreat center, and optional hikes, we will be on the move. That said, we will do whatever we can to accommodate your physical needs.
