Embrace Your Soul’s Wisdom:
A Summer Solstice Retreat for Extraordinary Women in Hawaii
June 20th – 27th, 2017

If you’re a woman who is ready to take a quantum leap in personal growth, deepen your connection to your inner wisdom and start living the life of your dreams then join Susan for this amazing retreat on the beautiful Island of Hawaii.

The Big Island of Hawaii is believed to be the heart center of the planet, a place of creation and love. You can feel the energy of Pele, the goddess of the volcano as soon as you arrive. The month of June is named for Juno the goddess of women.   The summer solstice is the longest day of the year, a tipping point. It is a wonderful time to connect with the goddess and the power of creation. During the retreat one of the ceremonies we’ll be doing is a fire ceremony, a time for you to let go of anything that no longer serves you as well as inviting your dreams to come true.

A volcano is a great place to release your limiting beliefs. It will bring up old, limiting beliefs from the core of your being.

Susan will show you how to replace fear with love, limitations with personal freedom and judgment with joy. You will go home filled with love, self-acceptance and lots of tools to continue to expand and create the life of your dreams.

The Magic of Celtic Country: Sacred Ireland
August 15-24, 2017

Ireland Retreat

There is a magic about Ireland (the Land of the Goddess Eriu) which is recognized by people worldwide. The varied landscape of lush green meadows, mountain ranges and spectacular coastline certainly lead one to believe that this land is blessed.

Stories of fairy folk and leprechauns also reflect the belief that the land has guardians. There is a feeling of spirituality held within the land that has been honored by successive generations through different belief systems over millennia.

Our travels will take us back in time and into the realms of myth, legend and deep wisdom as we make a circular journey through the provinces of the Republic of Ireland visiting sites revered as sacred by Pagans and Christians for thousands of years. This opens a doorway for each of us to discover forgotten aspects of our inner world.

Trip Tuition: £1995 based on double occupancy, Single occupancy supplement: £275 – many meals included.

Be Vulnerable

The power of being vulnerable is one of the greatest gifts I’ve learned. I used to believe that being strong meant being armored and distant in order to feel protected. I was strong if I was tough and nothing could touch me. But I learned that this false definition of strength only creates disconnection, numbness, and fear.

When we are trying to be invulnerable so that we don’t get hurt we are only hurting ourselves, because disconnection, numbness, and fear don’t let emotional and physical nourishment in. Vulnerability melts the frozen places and allows the warmth of compassion to fill us.

The word “vulnerable” comes from the Latin word for wound, or to wound. So when we are vulnerable we are exposing an emotional wound to another. The fear is that by showing the wound we will feel pain; that the person we are sharing our wound with will take the knife of their words or actions and stab it into our most tender places.

So of course, we try to avoid being vulnerable. We create elaborate stories and behaviors to protect ourselves. But those old wounded places need air and sunshine, and the damp, dark conditions we create by trying to avoid them eventually lead to infection and deeply buried, chronic pain.

From there the infection doesn’t stay buried, it starts to seep out into all of our actions, bringing the inflammation of fear and the heat of shame to all of our interactions.

In Warrior Goddess Way I talk about ripe and unripe stories. A ripe story is one that you are ready to release, that feels soft and ready to fall apart. It is a story that you no longer really believe, but you have been living as a habit or because it is familiar. An unripe story is one that has a lot of energy and investment; you still feel it strongly as truth.

Basically, an unripe story still has an infected wound as the main theme. Now, we don’t want to judge the unripeness or the wound; that’s like putting rat poison into your system and expecting it will help the healing. We need to simultaneously protect the wound with our compassion and understanding and courageously expose the wound to the sunshine.

Now, being vulnerable does not mean opening up your emotional wounds to everyone.
This is where the compassion comes in: when we acknowledge our wounding, not as something horrific or unredeemable, but as a part of us that was hurt, we take our power back from whomever or whatever originally wounded us. We stop saying to ourselves “If this never happened I wouldn’t have a wound,” or “If the person who wounded me acknowledged their part my wound will heal,” or “My wound is too big and will never heal, no matter what I do.” We bring in our love and awareness and start to ask the wound what it needs to heal.

Our bodies, both physical and emotional, are incredibly wise. And I believe as we can learn the answer from our wounds: not to the voices that say they are too deep or wide to heal, but to the deeper voice that lives within the original wounding. Because within each wound there is a wisdom that knows the medicine needed for the cure.

And this means we start to understand where and when to bring our vulnerable, wounded places into the light. I believe we can only learn by trial and error, or at least that is how I learn! Please do your best to be conscious of who feels safe and appropriate, a person who you feel can hold steady, warm sunshine as you expose your most sensitive areas. And know that sometimes people have the best intentions but don’t know how to hold, or get scared. And some people don’t want to know about your vulnerabilities. And some people will get triggered into their vulnerabilities when you share yours.

We are all learning and growing, so do your best to be patient and persistent. When you are ready to heal and are listening to the wisdom of your wound, you’ll call in the right people or person to be your sunshine. You are doing the actual healing with your bravery and willingness; they are a sacred witness.

Keep applying the balm of love and finding others who know the art of applying love liberally.

For me it has gotten easier to be vulnerable, and I’ve learned to trust myself and my knowing about the when and where. And yet each time I am vulnerable there is still the fear of being hurt, or exposing too much and being rejected. Even when this happens I’ve learned the most valuable lesson of all: to not abandon myself, and to be willing to try, try again.
