THE DIVINE GODDESS
Retreat Part 1
28TH SEPTEMBER -
CURRUMBIN VALLEY, QLD
50% for the first 10 women to book
The divine feminine is experiencing a re-emergence – a rebirth into collective consciousness.
From the beginning of time, women have been a curiosity and a mystery. The magic of women has inspired literature and mythology; whole temples have been built in reverence to women. Women have also been repressed, persecuted and removed from her place of honour out of fear that we hold a power that is not fully understood.
We now have opportunities to transform not only our own relationship to our hearts, our bodies and our connections but also our ancestral blueprints that we continue to live out often unconsciously.
You will be journeying deep into the mysterious, infinite and at times dark temples of love, where no shadow can hide.
This retreat is about holding the space for women to embody their deep intuitive emotional, physical, sexual, spiritual and mysterious selves through ancient ritual, dance, Mary’s profound teaching’s, transmutation, and inner journeying work which will connect each woman back into her centre, her womb, her lover.
The week long immersion will be an opportunity to initiate yourself and go deeper into the powerful woman that you know you are and are ready to fully own
Activities include Ecstatic Medicine Dance, Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, Full Moon Ceremony, Goddess Ritual and initiation, Fire Ceremony, private hot springs water bathing and devotion.
Vegetarian and vegan catering. Healthy, vibrant conscious food for the body.
These practices do not involve nudity or any sexual contact.
Gateways will open and so the journey begins.
You will discover:
You will be personally taught the sacred art of ‘worship and devotion’, how to celebrate yourselves, each other, the women in your life, the men in your lives. These practices are deep, ritualistic, soulful and intimate.
Goddess is co-creator with God, together they form the One, the creative essence of all of life. Together they create balance.
We also acknowledge the seed of the masculine and the seed that she carries within her for 9 months before giving birth to both male and female bodies.
We explore the perfect balance of both yin-yang, for in truth, without the other we are incomplete. The divine Feminine is neither male nor female and is beyond form and duality. As human’s we need to name and give form to an abstract concept so that we can connect to it at our level of awareness. The divine essence has become a father figure elevated over a mother God where man is valued over woman. The time has come to balance the male and the female energies within ourselves and inside our belief systems by honouring the divine feminine.
Embodiment of sexuality and intimacy, understanding passion, lust, love
These practices encourage each participant to let go, forgive, grow, become more self aware so that an ‘opening’ can occur which will begin the process of the kundalini, the spirit of the Shakti, the soul of the woman, and invoke the holy earth energy from within her body. This is where a full and true embodiment can occur as a surge of creative source energy is disbursed from Gaia and enters her body from her sex centre, awakening and aligning her chakra’s and also transforming, healing and deeply cleansing her as she moves into and becomes the manifestation of the sacred feminine.
Awakening sexual energy in the body.
Creating safe boundaries
Self Love, self Nurture and self honour
Moving from sensitivity to sensuality
Healing old wounds, releasing pain, letting go of karmic patterns and limiting programs
Let go of shame and guilt and own your desire to fully express yourself.
Learning the art of ‘flow and surrendour’.
Body Consciousness techniques and movements to allow the body to release ‘old energies’ which may be blocking you in all areas of your life.
Sacred dance, and spirit dance.
Balance of all 7 chakra’s and third eye, heart and base activation.
The power of the elements (Fire, water, earth, air and etha).
Exploration of light and dark goddesses
The retreat is designed to allow women to step into their full power and explore themselves on many levels until they are able to embody the spirit of manifestation, this is what the divine feminine births on the planet and through her birthing creation, she becomes the temple of oneness.
Each participant is taught how to expresses herself fully through ‘voice and will’ and show up to owning her vulnerability, her pleasure, her body, her sexuality, her spirit, to own her emotions, to stand in her power to move past fear into the kingdom of ‘freedom, trust and divine plan’.
We almost breath her mysterious passionate and raw heart back into life, we resuscitate the heart back in to breathing, resurrect the lover inside into feeling deeply and intimately, back into being in touch with the true and authentic essence of the woman, birthing the divine feminine through this process.
Mary teaches women how to harness their softness with beauty, strength and vulnerability rather than a ‘sensitivity’ that makes one go mad!!
Many women are empath power houses but they do not understand how to use their gifts, so then it remains only as sensitivity, and sensitivity is very personal not collective. So my job is to teach them how to transition from that really sensitive part of themselves that makes them a ‘psychic spunge’ , now sensitivity is really beautiful because you really feel everything but you don’t feel everything through the heart basically you feel everything through the mind and you are the by-product of everything you feel which can leave you depleted, hanging on to everybody else’s stuff, can leave you a victim, can leave you a martyr and that’s not we are creating, we are creating masters and lovers and prophets and light workers and warrior of love, dancers who are so completely and utterly emptied out that they become the movement of spirit – pure – wild – untainted.
Each participant continues to transition, journey, grow and evolve during the retreat – the intensity is a part of the experience, shift work is deep, change is constant, the release and purge are very real throughout the emptying out … yet the safe and sacred space created will nurture every woman during this process which leads to feeling more empowered, connected, fulfilled, powerful and clear; It is only from this place that the woman can offer herself fully, contribute, hold, see, give, and feel absolutely whole from within – she no longer needs to look to fill herself up anymore through others, projects or in relationships. She is now a conscious being who is the manifestation of divine and the co-creator of her life.
We are awakening the goddess, who has been hytonitised into sleep space for a long time and gifting her back her mysteries, her sacred keys, entrusting her with the crown of responsibility, restoring the scales of balance and giving her permission to fully own and embrace her wild, wonderful and magical ways.
The eye I call the mind or the psyche, the body the temple, the heart the essence of divine and the womb the place that resides in every woman as the miracle of life.
Other things we will explore at the goddess retreat is
How do you relate to yourself as an embodiment of Goddess
How do you relate to other women
How do you relate to your sisters
How do you relate to the divine feminie
Where do you meet and connect with women
Where do you meet and connect with men
I can virtually guarantee you that the whole room will put their hand up, because betrayal, jealousy, possession, addiction and attachment are the vices of the heart, are the vices of the feminine and unless we deal with the truth of the vice of the feminine, which is the darker aspects that you may deny but until you step into the place where you are using fire to illuminate past those illusions you will never understand her power because you are too busy denying her power, denying that you have the darker aspect, which is the jealousy, the envy, the attachment, possession. These are parts of the divine feminine that are suppressed and they are so suppressed that even talking about it sometimes brings stuff up for women.
We explore that, we look at that and we release that and we forgive ourselves and we move into it. We do a lot of work also with the dark goddess and we look at how do we embrace and understand the shadow and normally the shadow is a part of our sub conscious that cannot see its self-consciously so it’s in hiding and its job is to hide, so its unaware that it even exists, so through this goddess retreat we bring up the shadow. What parts of you are hiding, lets bring them up to the surface and might be that those parts of you that are hiding you can move them from being in there shadow to being in there truth. They then no longer become shadows.
For example, Two women one of them completely embracing her sexuality, loving her connections with her parents an her family and her intimate connection with her partner and willing to explore her body, is able and open and ready to explore those things. That’s not a shadow.
If someone else wants those things but denies them. For example wants to have the intimate sexual relationships, wants to be open sexually, wants to explore different things in the bedroom, wants to explore different things with their friends and be more comfortable with the body, there body and wants that, then the hiding of that will be there shadow. So if we can work through that and bring the shadow to the light, then it no longer becomes a shadow, because its known, the moment its known it becomes truth and truth is truth. Truth recognise truth, so there is no karma there, it just flow.
We explore the shadows and every woman works at her own pace some want to absolutely engulf themselves and they move into every exercise and session and other hold back, there is no right or wrong.
I work with every woman and I am basically your partner and your guide, your teacher, your lover, your mirror.
A lot of women really want to feel sexy and validated, that is why they may choose to come to the goddess retreat, they to connect a little deeper. Sure come to this retreat to feel sexy, to feel deeper, to shed but not to separate yourself from the masculine because the divine feminine cannot be the feminine without the embodiment of the seed that she carries, so we explore the part the masculine has to play in the balance of the Goddess.
What do we do in this retreat?
Tantric & Kundalini Yoga
Spirit Dance, exstatic dance, and body movement
Ancient sacred teachings, that come through about the body, death, rebirth, awakening, amazing ancient teachings that come through
There are bells, musical instruments, didgeridoo and we use a lot of them when we awaken, especially the womb, we awaken the womb by screaming, playing music, dancing, really moving into that, bringing that energy into us and then releasing whatever old energy needs to be released out of us so we can go through a rebirth.
We use the elements fire, water, air, either, earth, spirit, source energy. We bring in the medicine of the people, we call in the guides, and we call in the ancient priestesses. Ritual with crystal and water so we can bring that vibration into our body, prepare some crystal grids – one that is place at the front of the temple before the retreat begins and then that grid takes us into the journey.
Each woman is initiated into the magical rites of spell making, alchemy, intention, manifestation, prayer and devotion. Then towards the end of the retreat, an initiation occurs – something very special happens for some of us – we become initiated into the mysteries and we see ourselves as deity. I will leave out all the juicy bits, and allow for this part of your awakening to remain just that: a mystery. We take ourselves from wanting to worship the goddess outside of us to how do we begin to honour worship and celebrate and embody the goddess from within us. So we actually become her and she awaking with every single movement she then begins to awaken. We use a lot of movement, water ritual.
Water ritual back in the time was very sacred, back in the ancient Egyptian times, the roman times, and the Greek times, with the sisters that would gather together in the waters with oils and anoint themselves and each other into the sacred mysteries.
Some of these sessions go from starting at 6am and finish and 8pm at night, some sessions depending on how much we are shifting and the calibration and the collective of the room, we might finish at midnight or at 3 am in the morning. So that we can purge and release as much as we need to.
Every care is taken to ensure participants receive exactly what they need for healing, growth and embodiment.
Our wild sacred women ‘s retreats are rooted in the very essence that as one woman rises, she brings along one or more women with her, thus creating a network of inspired women around the world. We honor that we all hold similar wounds and desires and through this commonality, we become more loving towards one another and celebrate the unique gifts we each have. With your participation, you enter into in a supportive global tribe of sisters and begin the new creative collective force.

The Divine Goddess Retreat
For as long as I can remember I have been conditioned by fear and unworthiness. I have drowned in the lowest of lows only to sink further into self loathing and harm. I was lost in a world where I struggled to belong. I yearned for purpose only to find defeat.
Last year I received a gift and that divine gift was Mary Mikhael My heart trusted and followed her light which in the past 4 days led me into a personal journey of self discovery and conscious awakening. The tears flowed as I surrendered and released lifetimes of persecution and pain.
To the beautiful women who allowed me to nurture and be nurtured, I am grateful for your unconditional love. And to the Goddess and Warrior who believed in me from the first moment our eyes met, I am privileged to receive your loving guidance and I am honoured to be in your divine presence Mary. Because of you I can see again, I can feel again, I can breathe again
So I just spent 4 days deep deep deep at 'The Divine Goddess Retreat' run by Mary Mikhael after the Universe literally kicked my butt in there. Last minute and it all just aligned up as it does when it's meant to be right? So grateful that Noah was safely with his dad this very weekend so that I could do this and that my own beautiful man just sees me and knew what it would mean for me. Thank you darling for always being such a light in my life ❤
I've been asked by a few of you what was the most amazing part? - and I literally can't pick one . My mind , soul and heart are still blown out in love and gratitude and I'm definitely integrating still.
I fought with my mind so much over these couple of days but every time I did Mary,this incredible woman, with her beautiful heart and soul, would just know and be there. At one point I was down crying out fear and pain I do not know where that came from but it's irrelevant and part of the journey- only to a few minutes later be hysterically laughing in the most freeing of laughter. She held me and the other beautiful goddesses in such power but yet so gentle, allowing us to really know and feel the answers or perhaps questions inside of us. I love when I get to think for myself and not just be fed if you know what I mean.
Cracked right open, so many shifts, releases, aha moments and through it all such delicious, unconditional love. For my sisters, for my brothers , for the world.
Raw, wild , surprising AF ( not gonna spoil the surprise for someone else wanting to do it, and trust me you won't regret it), beautiful connections and one heck of a journey.
I am not the same woman now as when I walked in that's for sure , excited to see where it will land before taking flight again. I learnt so much, laughed so much and loved so much .
Thank you Mary from the bottom of my heart. So so grateful for you and the space you held for me
What a powerful and magical weekend! So grateful to have you as my teacher and very honored to share the experience of goddess work with beautiful souls thank you thank you thank you Mary
It was raw, magical, wild, scary, transforming, undescribable, heart opening...Thank you with my whole being for creating this space and holding it for us! It is incredible to watch now how it changed me and how I interact, think, feel differently. And this is just the start, hey?! Bring it on!
We explore 5 main archetypes together ..
The Lover ~ Passion & Intimacy
The eternal Spirit
The lover is the intimate, passionate deep, soft, yet intense part of our being that invites sensuality, beauty, erotic sexuality into her life. She is the goddess that moves in spirit offering 2 gifts of ‘giving and receiving’ as she uses the energy of ‘love’ to connect deeply within her mind-body and soul, in the manifestation of this – she extends herself to nature, her sisters, her lovers with the essence of the lover. We explore how she moves with life, love and passion blazing to hold, taste, feel, be felt and experienced to her very core.
The priestess ~ Truth & Magic
The illumed master
The priestess is the part of us that holds the sacred wisdom, the keys to truthm the sacred ritualistic devotion to her Beloved, she dancing for no one but her love for the creator and experiences all things ‘new and ancient’ as talesmen for the next part of her journey.
The priestess gathers the medicine of the energy, uses her body as a temple, celebrates her emotions inside the mysteries of divine cycles ‘love, birth, death, rebirth’. The priestess is neither light nor dark --- she is vessel for all energy to be transmuted from within her.
She sees everything, she is the seer she is the keeper of the truth, she is the gateway to the stars, she is the one that you follow through the forest at night, and she is the one that you trust. She encompasses that sacredness the way of spirit, she holds the law of spirit, she is the wise one.
As the keeper of truth of all ancient knowledge she has mastered the rituals, spells, worship and devotion and she brings all of those elements into the body as she embraces herself as a sacred temple, all who touch her and be touched by her will be moved by her magic, hyptnotised by her wisdom and receive the initiation into the gateways of the Gods.
Goddess – The merge with Oneness
Journey with us through the gateways of infinite space to a place where there is no time, only an ‘is-ness’ here as we explore the Goddess archetype, of the we invoke both light and dark energies and collide them into the one, and become ‘emptied out’ completely. Here, it’s about moving past polarity and holding that one essence, the one that sees, that loves, that is. The isness of all of it is the perfection in this entire great cosmic plan.
The goddess is the invocation of creation so it is an influx of creative energy that the woman can channel in any expression that she chooses as the essence of source moves through her.
That particular architype is looking at the virtues of a goddess, wisdom, knowledge, truth, sensuality, life, nurture, nursing, giving, service, trust and faith. It’s bringing all of the elements of the goddess and she can also hold dark, so darkness, shadow, transformation, ending’s and new beginning’s – being immersed in the essence.
The goddess encompasses the masculine, the feminine, the seed, the manifestation and the consciousness.
The Warrior ~ Stength and Courage
‘The Sword of fire’
Explore your wild, fierce, unapologetic desire for self expression, exploration, freedom and mastery as the warrior archetype moves you to fully channel energy and emotion, into your body-mind-soul that rises above any feelings of shame, shyness or worthlessness.
As a essence a warrior, the way a women will depict that is through strength, strength of will, courage, courage to feel the fear and move past the fear anyway, courage to say good bye to old expired and dead parts of our lives in order to explore new dimensions, new worlds, new beginnings, new journeys into the discovery of the unknown. Using the warrior archetype we learn to rise above the pain, above the trauma, above the weight of the world, above the expectations of other people, above the expectations of your family, above the expectations of the government and collective and really say “hey this is my truth”.
You will have an opportunity to play out the warrior and feircly yet lovingly assert your strength and force of power in a world that wants to deprive and rob you of your freedom and my free spirit. Together we explore the reactive warriors and the responsive warriors.
The warrior brings about that power, the other thing a warrior does is shed’s through illusion. A lot of the times in society we place nice because A we don’t want to hurt somebody, we don’t want to hurt ourselves, we want to be accepted. We don’t want to be looked upon as too out there or a little bit aggressive or to passionate
What we do is place nice and we then conform and become part of that energy and a part of that “OK, I’m just going to be nice”.
The warrior is about not needing to be liked, I don’t need to be accepted by you to do the right thing. To do the right thing is not about right/wrong it’s about following your heart, to be in my truth, to step into my power.
I have mastered the warrior, but from time to time I am challenged by the warrior because we live in a world where if we rock the boat too much, someone is bound to fall off and no one wants to get back on. If someone falls off the boat then it becomes your fault. “It’s my fault, I rocked the boat” and they say “hey I got myself wet”. Really it’s no big deal, you got yourself we, get back on the boat.
It’s just a part of the ebb and flow of the waves of the universe, or the waves of the ocean.
Using the warrior is a way we can own our truth, speak our truth, be our truth and dance in that way and invoke both light and dark.
That is a really powerful architype that we explore for many women.
The Mother ~ Nurture & Healing
I call the mother the wise one. The mother is the nurture, is the one that looks after. The nurse, the nurture, the wise one, the old women, the women that has walked many lives that has seen many things, that doesn’t care about what is right or wrong, only sees the perfection in everything and doesn’t look at you as a child and dismisses everything but basically brings you into her castle to her home in the woods and just heals you, so the wise women, the mother, the healer, the Sharman is the one that hear everything you say but doesn’t make it about her, makes it about you and actually sees past you and brings you in for deep healing work. That architypes is all about releasing, releasing, compassion and wisdom.
