Reflections from past participants

"I look forward to Star Goddess Retreat every year. I have been on a lot of retreats but Star Goddess will always be my favorite. There is truly something magical about Star Island, and the retreat. Every year I leave feeling so revitalized, relaxed and inspired. The movement and activities Susan plans for us takes me back home to my body and helps me find a deeper appreciation for myself. Susan leads from her heart and spreads joy. You can't help but smile, laugh and appreciate life while on the island."

Liz Haven, Intuitive Wellness Coach 

"Spiritual connection, love & transformation!
I met Susan at my first Goddess Retreat in 2011
and have been coming ever since.
There is a deep spiritual awareness that Susan shares with us, not to mention her wisdom, laughter, connection and sense of adventure. Retreat time is sacred time and an opportunity to recharge, reset and rediscover. I've made a commitment to Susan's groups for these reasons and choose to be in her presence as much as I can be. These retreats continue to have profound, long lasting effects on my life,
and inspire me every day."

Kelly Sharpe

"20 + years ago, Susan was my first Yoga Teacher. She is an absolute joy! I participate in as many of her programs as I can and the Star Island Goddesss Retreat is a favorite. Susan creates a warm, nurturing and safe environment for relaxation, restoration, and healing. I leave Star rejuvenated and inspired!"

Sheila Pierson-Roy, RYT 500

"I have been going to Susan's retreats for several years. It's the best weekend that I can spend in the year. I leave refreshed, rejuvenated, at peace, and in connection with other goddesses and my own life. The love and support received from this retreat always has a lasting effect in my life and I couldn't be more grateful to Susan."

Ellen Wood

I've just signed up for my third Goddess retreat and have a friend joining me this year! I took a risk going to the first retreat and feel blessed that I did. The minute we docked at Star Island I knew this was going to be special. Susan was there to meet us with her warm smile and effortless laughter. 
The Goddess retreat is unlike any other retreat I have participated in.
Susan creates such a safe and welcoming environment that you can immediately feel a part of the group, even if you don't know anyone. 

Susan's passion, knowledge, and joy for life make for a rare combination.

The retreats are planned in such a way that you can move, laugh, dance and enjoy the other goddesses as well as beautiful Star Island, leaving lighter and more connected. Since my first retreat I have joined a number of Susan's other offerings and have had my life enhanced in many ways...most importantly my relationship with myself and my purpose on this beautiful planet.
