“I knew my trip to Greece with Lorraine and Barbara would be beautiful and fun, but I didn’t expect that I’d also gain such a deep and sensual understanding of the original myths of the Goddess. The food, the culture, the joy of new friends, the laughter, the dances and rituals we did at each site—through all of them, my Goddess-self felt reunited with the profound truths I had been seeking for so long. It was a sacred journey like no other I’ve ever experienced.” -–Gail Ann, South Salem, NY
“If you receive an invitation to visit Greece, GO!! It has the potential to change your life and enrich your mind and soul. The spirits of the Greek goddesses reside there and have wisdom to impart. They may be calling you. I received that call, and soon, almost magically, found myself standing on the beach. The gifts I received are beyond words, and the renewed view of my world and future bring me inspiration, joy and gratitude.” –K.S., Colorado
“My favorite moment? Eating fresh calamari atop the volcanic cliffs of Santorini, mandolins playing, talking with incredible women about how we’d cried after Moon Ceremony on Crete two nights ago and how our lives would be different if we lived in a culture centered around women, nature, and beauty as the Minoans had, and laughing that we’d probably still not be brave enough to walk around bare-breasted as they had!” –B.G., San Francisco, CA
