With the Whole Body Goddess work, we lovingly and respectfully opened up to deeper appreciation of and connection with our female body, especially the reproductive organs. Taking the same loving and respectful approach in the Inner Marriage Retreat, we will explore, experience, and learn how to cultivate Union with the Divine in our bodies for:
The mystics of the world’s wisdom traditions have long used passionate love and marriage as a metaphor for Divine Union (marriage of Shiva and Shakti, the Church as the Bride of Christ, etc.).

Green fire licks all pride from the skull
And soaks each trembling cell with Heaven.
