Tucked so preciously in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, these 9 precious islands are considered by many as the Hawaii of the Atlantic
These are gorgeous Portuguese islands almost literally in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, tucked away so preciously, and ready to be explored with wonder and magic!
The land, in the Azores, is full of life and energy that you will feel immediately upon setting foot on these islands! What an honor and magical journey to witness this reclamation of its sacred Atlantian title, while you, yourself will be guided throughout the Retreat, to reclaim your very own sacred Divinity!
We will experience these small villages, symbolic of our "re-membering" (gathering in groups) with soul-aligned communities, to rewild and realign with Mother Earth and with our true Self
Daily journeys to different, awe-inspiring nature sites throughout the islands, to sit and connect deeply to your spirit + to Mother Earth.
Experience your deeper Self through sharing and supporting one another
We will spend every day in nature, visiting absolutely breathtaking sites through earth-connecting ceremonies (see list of these ceremonies below)
The Azores Islands are stunning and absolutely magical. Join us in this mystical, mesmerizing, and soul-reviving journey in the Azores
Each day, we will experience the following deep connection to Mother Earth, our sacred Mother, and to our Self, through the following events, rituals, and ceremonies:
Earth grounding: connecting deeply to Mother Earth by walking barefoot at each of the sites, with intention and reverence, including a four directions devotional walk
During this retreat, we will be in deep reverence for nature, Mother Earth, and ourselves
Ceremony of Self Acknowledgment; Fire Ceremony; Vision Casting Ceremony; Prosperity & Abundance Ceremony, Sacred Anointing & Reclamation Ceremony, Floral Water Bath Ceremony, Nature Restorative Movement & Dance Ceremony, Drum Ceremony, Tree Ceremony, Forest Bathing, Fear Releasing Cave Ceremony, Food Blessing Ceremonies, Call to the whales and dolphins in those sacred waters, Ceremonial communion daily with the beloved Cacao Spirit, daily guided awareness journey work and blessing rituals.
Cacao is a cosmic Mother spirit, so gently nurturing us to open our hearts and see what's beyond our current beliefs and stories. We will be connecting, daily, to this beautiful Plant Medicine while out in nature, and sharing sacred Cacao offerings to Mother Earth, throughout the islands!
Author and Cacao Spirit-Medicine Ceremonialist, Judy's life was forevermore transformed when she began to reverently drink Ceremonial Cacao daily. She developed a profound connection to this heart-opening, consciousness-raising infinite intelligence, now sharing with others how they too can connect deeply to Mama Cacao, to ignite their intuition, connection to Source, and clarity of their purpose. Cacao has exponentially accelerated her spiritual journey and she now shares this Sacred Cacao with others to experience through daily Rituals, Ceremonies, Facilitator Trainings, and Wellness Retreats in Peru & the Azores.
