Abundant Goddess Retreat- image from Goddess AcumenGoddess Acumen, a company led by Dr. Helen Johnson designed to help women become more balanced, less stuck, less depleted and more embracing of life, has recently launched a new retreat.  The Abundant Goddess & Yoga Retreats held in Barbados for 7 days incorporate meditation, Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

The premise of these retreats is to give women the space to re-connect with their inner goddess through workshops, activities and yoga classes. The 6 goddess archetypes of which the retreat focuses on are Athena (career and your potential), Artemis (your wild side), Aphrodite (love and pampering), Hera (your power), Persephone (letting go) and Demeter (taking care of you). They each act as a metaphor for how we live our lives. Each day of the retreat is dedicated to a different goddess, focusing on tapping into each archetype whilst utilising the luscious surroundings of Barbados. Retreat leader and founder of Goddess Acumen Helen Johnson explains it as being able to plug into six power sources instead just of one.

Accommodation during the retreat is at The Legend Garden Condos, a historic plantation lavished with coconut, mango and palm trees and home to a charming collection of boutique 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. The Legend is set on the shores of idyllic Mullins Beach on the island’s west coast which is often known as the platinum coast for its profusion of beautiful beaches. Whilst Mullins Bay will be your base, there is also be chances to experience other parts of the island such as with a visit to Oistins to sample their legendary Friday fish fry, a community activity where locals and tourists get together for some delicious freshly cooked fish.

Not only are the Abundant Goddess Retreats in a beautiful location, participants will meet new friends and share incredible experiences, leaving the retreat with the best version of themselves. Someone positive, revitalised and ready to take on life. And for 6 months following the retreat there is a schedule of follow up activities to support you as you integrate the new techniques into daily life.
