Have you been wondering how you can tap into your feminine energy?
Are you looking to create more ease, rest, and play in your life?
Can you use space to release and heal on a beautifully stunning island?
Is it your desire to connect with other goddesses of like mind, energy and spirit?
If you answered yes to all of the questions above, you would be a perfect fit for our next Goddess Vibes Retreat in my second home of Puerto Rico. The vibration of the ancestral energy is so high, it is an ideal place to tap into the magic.
The island has been my balm, my space of refuge and healing on so many levels and I have been honored to continue to experience this journey with my fellow sisters.
So come along, read a bit more, and see if you connect with just a taste of what you could experience for yourself as we dive into the waters of our feminine energy.
It Begins with Your Goddess Activation
It all begins spending time with me. In my previous retreat experiences, I've found that there isn't much time to ground and prepare your body, mind, and spirit for all that is available in the healing container. Moreover, it can be a shock to our system to switch our minds from working to releasing in a matter or days or hours. In order to ease you to the goddess activation, you will have a 45-minute coaching call with me to help us begin making room to awaken your inner goddess. This will include a natal chart and chakra energy reading to assess how you flow in your Sacral feminine spirit.
Day 1: Goddess Formation
Our retreat space is an idyllic villa at the Palmas del Mar Resort in Humacao, Puerto Rico. You will begin your journey with a welcome reception with authentic Puertorican cuisine and libations to initiate us into this island culture. You will also be treated to your first spiritual download session as you are introduced to some of the goddesses of the African diaspora, particularly the goddesses Yemaya, Oshun, and the Egyptian Goddess Hathor, and how we can tap into their energetic vibration. You will end your day connecting with your retreat cohort and grounding in an evening kemetic yoga practice
Day 2: Goddess Initiation
Ready to heal in the Waters of the Yunque Rainforest where the Indigenous Taino of the island deemed as sacred to the gods and ancestral energy?
The indigenous Taino were the first humans to find themselves on the island, and El Yunque loomed large in both their mythology, and their day-to-day existences. It's name is attributed to the significant deity Yúcahu, who represented everything from agriculture, peace, tranquility, and fertility to the notion of “goodness” itself.”
Your first retreat excursion will take us to the rivers of this lush environment to charge our crystals and ourselves. You will participate in an energy clearing waters in the heart of nature as you are called to release our fears and receive the loving messages and spiritual activation that is supported in the rainforest.
Your Initiation in Sacred Waters....
Day 3: Goddess Transformation
Prepare for your Crowning Ceremony! Yes, you will be crowned my beautiful Queen. Because that's the energy you've always flowed in, you just couldn't see it until now.
But before we get there, this day will offer you time to embody your experience with several offerings including
Intuitive Body Work/Massage
Oracle and Tarot Readings
Goddess Photo Shoot
This is a day for you to relish in all your glory. Other cultures have practices for girls to cross over into womanhood. If you haven't participated in such an experience, this is your opportunity to have your sisters bear witness to your transformation into your complete divine feminine form. We are here to treat you like the Queen you are my love!
Day 4: Goddess Celebration
Your last day will be spent embracing the Afro-Caribbean culture of this island in Loiza, a community founded by ex-slaves and filled with a powerful artistic presence and spirituality. You will visit local and world reknowned artist, and take a traditional Bomba dance class on the beach.
Bomba is a musical expression created in Puerto Rico at the end of the 17th century, by West Africans and their descendants who worked the colonial sugar plantations along the coast of Puerto Rico. Through fiery drum rhythms and improvised dance, the cane workers released feelings of anger, resistance, and sadness about their condition. It was at "Bailes de Bombas" (Bomba Dances) where baptisms and marriages were celebrated, and rebellions planned. (You will actually meet one of the families that have served in keeping this rich tradition!)
Bonus: Full Moon Ancestral Circle

Yes Goddess! Be prepared to bring your white and gather around the fire as you put your Bomba skills to practice honoring the ancestors under Full Moon Energy. This is the most extraordinary experience of my life and I'm thrilled to share it with you.
The goal of this Goddess Vibes Retreat is to heal in sacred community. Therefore, this retreat cohort is very selective and limited to only 7 goddesses!
It Ends with Your
This Retreat is about you fully integrating into the Goddess Energy you received on the island.

This experience was more than just a trip to Puerto Rico for me. I travel often but I had never been to PR before. Wanna know why? Bc I lacked vision. I never knew PR held on to soooo much of its culture. And was a quick hop & skip away from seeing into what so many of us black peoples lost by being born in America. This trip opened my eyes to PR and it’ll be heavy on my rotation as I plan my future trips and retreats from the states.
We stayed in a beautiful house that looked over the water. I could see the ocean from my balcony!! This took my morning meditations to the next level! We toured Luiza which had so much rich Afro Latino culture. We even had a spiritual session with Samuel Lind, a famous artist who lives and works in the area. He gave me his cell # so I could call him for a personal tour of his exhibit showcased in Chicago where he knew I was from!
By far my favorite part was receiving my Reiki Level 3 Attunement on the beach!! The downloads were so powerful. The alignment was magical. We even caught a glimpse of what only can be described as a portal! It was a magical experience. I’m so glad I was able to join with my tribe!
It's been a while since the retreat back in October 2021 and I am still relishing in all the magic I experienced from our adventures. As a solo traveler on this group retreat, comfort, safety and connecting were concerns you unknowingly quelled. The vibe was welcoming, supportive, spiritual and EMPOWERING! Many favorites to recall.. ancestral destinations, pool-side yoga, chakra readings, beaches to reflect and sisterhood with like-minded, spirit-filled women! Thank you for creating this opportunity for your those seeking solace, enlightenment and divine connections. Affirming continued success and abundant blessings to Deep Breath Healing and Katherine. I'm grateful to be connected to the tribe
My Puerto Rico reset was everything I needed and more. I went there expecting to learn a few ways to transform my practice and walked away with the skill to transform my life. I learned the beauty of truly appreciating the present moment and honoring my authentic self. The sights were amazing, the team was inviting and informative. The accommodations were spacious. But more importantly, the experience was truly priceless. I highly recommend and can’t wait to attend again.

Chakra Goddess Facilitator
My name is Tammy and I firmly believe that Art is a creative from of self-expression which can increase our sense of well-being by allowing us to express our emotions and release stress. Because of that belief, anything involving photography and music has always been a source of happiness for me.
My need to feed my creative side also lead to working as a Local Radio personality in South Florida for 15 years while building one of the top party websites and endless design projects with various disc jockeys and club promoters. Despite those successes and earning a degree in Graphic Art from The Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, I always felt like something was missing.
This is where my journey to seek greater self-awareness started. I realized that I was unbalanced but wasn’t sure how to correct the issue. Being a working mother with three children also presented its own set of challenges. But through prayer and meditation, I began to identify the parts of myself which needed healing. My first focus was to strengthen my relationship with God, my Ancestors and Ifa Yoruba Orishas With this, I began to gain a clearer sense of direction and understanding. This hasn’t been an easy process but my determination to exit that dark place and reside with the colors that brings me so much joy has resulted in branches of creativity designed to support your journey.
