Luscious Aphrodite

Women's Retreat

Maui Hawaii

May  10-15, 2023

Join Us! 

For an All Inclusive 5 night Experience of a Lifetime!

You are invited to gather with an intimate group of women, in a gorgeous setting at Hale Akua Eco-Retreat on Maui, Hawaii's North Shore. Nestled on the cliffs edges, with vast ocean and waterfall views. This is an opportunity for each of us to invoke our own unique embodiment and expression of  "Luscious Aphrodite", and to weave our wisdom, magic and medicine together.

Who is this archetype, and why her now? Aphrodite, the Goddess of love, beauty and initiation. I percieve myths, stories, as analogies, reflections of our collective human psyche. Living parts of ourselves that we can connect with, invoke and cultivate relationship with. I'm not here to tell you who Aphrodite is, but to inspire you to explore for youself what embodying your own interpretation looks, feels, tastes and  sounds like.  Why? Because  we are emerging from 1,000's of years of oppression, shame and guilt and the primal wild free divine creatrix energy of the divine feminine is rising, awakening and reclaiming her soverignty and power.  Not power over anyone, power onto herself.   Now is the time for us to remember who we are, our untapped potential and unique  medicines. We have the ability to  alchemize our suffering, pain, trauma, and self limiting stories into pearls of wisdom,  filling our cups until they are overflowing in abundance, so that we may share our hearts, our gifts with the world from a place of groundedness, compassion, confidence, self love, self acceptance, empowered, embodied, radiance! 

 

To begin our journey we will be meeting all together, virtually for 2 live calls during the month of April, leading up to our retreat. This is where the work will begin, as we deep dive right into collective cleaning, clearing, shedding, healing and  creating space for  Integrating all parts of our whole selves, up leveling and  optimizing our realities.  Within a  safe, non-judgemental container, we will invite vulnerability and authenticity as we open up,  illuminting any self limiting stories, beliefs or perceptions that may be road blocks in the way of feeling clarity, connected, supported, confident, empowered, peace and joyfilled! We will share incredibly useful tools for long lasting personal transformation! This is a wonderful way for us to connect with other sisters who feel this call to be apart of this work right now.  Group work is profound, as the enegies of each one of us who shows up brings a piece of a greater puzzle.

Please know that you do not have to have any dance experience to come, only an open heart-mind!

 Meet Your  Facilitators!

Tristan   St.Germain  is a Trauma Informed Somatic Life Coach,  Movement Medicine Facilatator,  and Modern Day Medicine Woman.    She began her journey in the healing  and movement arts 25 years ago.   She has been immersed in the practices of  yoga, dance, flow arts, ritual, women's rites of passage, ceremony, workshops, and exploring multiple facets of education in both the the fields of Science-Psychotherapeutic approaches to healing as well as spiritual initiations and apprenticship to ancient lineages.

 

She is both  student and teacher, a mother of two teenagers, married 22 years, experienced in cultivating healthy  communication dynamics, while also maintaining her own authentic  embodied expression.  

 

Though she has trained in many modalities of dance, it's FreeStyle Movement Play that has her heart.  Learning technique is like learning language, where through repetition these patterns become apart of our movement vocabulary, which then expands our ability to creatively articulate  dancefloor  conversations.  It is a great honor for her to be a guide for others to come home ever more deeply from a place of self love, acceptance and compassion. 

 

Luscious Aphrodite was birthed as a nickname her husband once named her.  It resonated deeply  and was used as a stage name for performaces.  However she knew this name wasn't  just for her, this name is an archetype of the psyche, a divine expression of the goddess of love, beauty and initation, that is accessible for anyone who seeks to know her, to be her.  

This retreat is an invitation, a co-creation, a healing experience and an empowering journey, that she is honored to  co-facilate.

Dj  Shelajit

Local Maui artist Shelajit will be joining us Saturday 5/13,  to share a movement workshop followed by a juicy Ecstatic Dance Get Down! 

Like the medicinally rich black tar which she derived her name, Shelajit represents the primal embodiment of the deep, feminine, void of creation.  As a lifelong dancer and movement guide, she intentionally creates music to inspire deep dancefloor journeys.   Shelajit's sound is an array of tribal bass, dubstep, downtempo, and half-time with organic textures, dreamy soundscapes, and layered percussion. She feels most inspired when she collaborates with other femme artists and values the potency of unified self-expression.
