American Goddess & Bali Retreat
I created this book to honor the Divine Feminine Goddess that resides in all women. The inherent powerful beauty that resides in women sometimes needs a witness to bring it to light. When a woman is truly present in the moment, connected to the natural environment and feeling strong, she effortlessly embodies the Goddess. May the images in this book be a tether to reconnect you to your divine essence and inspire you to create images of your divine Goddess self.
Born in the great melting pot, we are the American Goddess. We are a mixed breed, a tribe of all cultures. Our DNA holds the memory of many matriarchal societies that functioned from the heart.
Our Grandmothers hail from all cultures. Some Native American; others immigrated from Africa, Europe, China, India and all corners of the world. They have handed down their matriarchal culture, their knowledge of herbal medicine, song, dance, and ritual. They were deeply connected to Mother Earth, the moon, the seasons, and animals. They held reverent the care of infants, children and the elderly.
I honor and thank all my ancestral mothers who had their inherent Goddess essence silenced in their time. Their Goddess birthright miraculously lived on through the generations to this point in time. Today the women of America can, without fear stand in their divine light and embody the Great Goddesses of our ancestors.
The American Goddess embodies all cultural beliefs of the divine feminine.

A Sacred Journey to Bali; June 12 – 20 2016
Join us on a journey to Bali where we will walk in our beauty nature and reflect our light into the world. We will weave our sacred circle at Bagus Jati, where we will stay in luxurious villas on hillside gardens among lush tropical forests in the mountains outside of Ubud. In addition to circle time and yoga, we will journey to a traditional Balinese village, trek in the jungle where we will experience the magnificent variety of flora and fauna and be a part of a purification ritual and blessing ceremony at a nearby temple and waterfall.
