Walk this ancient path. Answer your soul calling. Enter a modern-day profession.
Since the beginning of time, a spiritual teacher and guide had to undergo years of intense, often severe training.
If you made it through your teacher would give you the grace of his/her transmission, lineage, and blessing to share the gift.
It wasn’t easily bestowed but had to be earned with sweat and blood. And it was a distinguished, rare honor.
But given our dire global situation and how many women are awakening everywhere, we simply need more qualified spiritual teachers and facilitators in our world.
Especially those who live, guide and teach through the deep feminine way.
However, to answer the surge of need…
Some women just make it up, read books, take a few workshops and pass it on. Their wisdom remains superficial, inauthentic, and uncooked. Not real and lived. Having intuition, some knowledge, healing, and an awakening experience just aren’t enough. Sometimes with naivete or arrogance, lack of ethics, skill, and training, they cause more harm than good.
And there are women, who carry this ancient calling in their hearts but fear taking the staff. Feeling not good enough or ever ready. Not having the capacity, afraid to abuse power….they hold back and never fulfill their sacred vocation. A boding sense of ‘I am not allowed to take such authority, it’s forbidden’ whispers from below.
Yes, it was. In most spiritual traditions and in our world, women were not allowed to take the seat of power.
Men took the sole authority as spiritual teachers and leaders. For centuries the common spiritual path has been taught, dominated, and created by men for men. But, this masculine approach of transcendence does not work for women. We have inherited, ingested, and followed their teachings and practices. Not surprisingly, it has caused harm, confusion, and disconnection for women. Even modern-day spirituality is heavily influenced by it and is often leading women astray.
Buried, oppressed, hidden, and forgotten it is still alive deep down in the earth, coursing through our soul, blood, and bones.
She is urging us to step into our rich heritage, reclaim what is ours all along, free ourselves and resurrect her power.
Embody and show the way for women who are longing for her! For our sanity, health, enlivenment, this earth, our ancestors and children, and her liberation.
For over 30 years, I’ve been guiding women worldwide to awaken, heal and embody Her way in life and this world. I have experienced the immense effect it has. How women find home, come to life, heal in body and soul. How they are able to step into empowerment, embodiment, and help in the great turning. This gift is so needed now.
This intimate connection with the living water and the root of earth. The holy fire in our bellies roaring. Liberation from the shackles of oppression and endless shame. Speaking truth to power with the forgotten voice of the soul. Steeped in the nectar, embracing human vulnerability and rising in true love.
Real, enlivened, and wildly here. In supportive relationship with each other.
We need the deep feminine way.
We need women like you to immerse, train and step forth to guide us now.
For, we have reached the edge upon this earth. And SHE is the one to restore, heal, resurrect and guide – to turn the tide in our lives and this world.
Waves of women are awakening and searching for wise guidance and a hand.
I heeded the call early in life. I trained extensively (and the growth never ends:) because I felt the profound responsibility to guide others well and I was asked to teach. Since then I’ve been working with thousands of people, especially women, for decades worldwide. And now, after receiving many requests, I am honored and thrilled to offer a year-long substantial spiritual teacher education for women in the way of the deep feminine.

What Women say who have attended Women’s Retreats, Teachings or Tainings with Nicola:
“In the midst of a time of upheaval and chaos in the world, I found the profound grace of the Magdalena Training. Words cannot ever fully describe how your generous, heart-centered guidance and knowledge facilitated my initiation into a lineage rooted in the womb of Creation. Nicola embodies the deep feminine teachings with humble authority and allowed me to stand authentically on a path I know was encoded in my soul. I have fully entered into the Mystery of Her path and will forever be indebted to you for guiding me home. My deep gratitude.” Maggie March, UK
“What can I say about the work with this exceptional woman? Of all the teachers with whom I have ever worked, Nicola Amadora is the one who guided me home in the most direct and loving way. She led me so refined and precise and embraced with honor and love the hurt and the lost parts of my personality. In her presence, I am seen and felt, cherished, and safe. She is clear and strong in her guidance without dominance or pretense. Her lived humanity touches me deeply and I am amazed to experience what awakening and the feminine really is.” Claudia Neubert, Coach, Women’s Leader, Leipzig
“I attended this retreat without knowing Nicola, I was guided to come to the Pilgrimage with her. It surpassed all my expectations. The housing, the food, the teachings, the guidance, nature, and sacred places…My life is transformed, it’s incredible. I feel so grateful.”
Connie Viveros, CA, Coach
“I am still amazed about the creation and walking the path before us Nicola, so that we as a group of women with such unique and different expressions, were able to be there for the purpose to awaken and embody the deep feminine. The container created energetically and physically allowed me to relax and feel safe to open and be vulnerable, which I could not have done alone and dared to in daily life or elsewhere. The villas, food, housing and structure reflected perfectly the loving, nourishing, and caring attitude throughout the retreat. Nicola created and held a sacred space wherever we were in such a loving and intuitive way. She tuned in constantly and directed the energies for the benefit of all. I felt I could be here with what is here now, accept, integrate, feel, and be. Not having to change what is here now. The loving field made it easy to explore the most vulnerable and hidden parts of me to be recognized, lovingly accepted and integrated. There is immense gratitude for having this possibility, the experience of real love, trust and sisterhood and togetherness which changed my life forever. It feels like a rebirth into the real feminine and learning to live it.” Gisela Eilinger, Germany
“Nicola took me through a pilgrimage of a lifetime- a wide embrace of our humanity and divinity. Embodied, bold, centered, loving, clear, tender, and inexhaustibly empowering. Thank you, Nicola, for rooting me in my life purpose. It was far beyond of what I could imagine and surpassed all that I expected. It was fantastic. The practices and processes offered answered for me the ancient call, rooted in the earth, in the body. It has unveiled my deepest longing, my greatest courage, and the rawest part of me that I could not have touched on my own. Nicola has walked us up the mountain and down to the underworld, and helped us dance among the roses and thorns, restoring us to this mighty calling as life-givers and way-showers. She opened us up to the magic that we are here to weave, not on our own, but together…the magic of Embodied Love and the feminine way. The training was profound and I have gained tremendous resources and skills through which I also guide others now.” Pamela Yap. Acupuncturist, New York
“This was the most powerful retreat I ever attended. Nicola’s facilitation was masterful, she held the container with such skill and love, fierceness, embodied wisdom and compassion. It was astounding for me over and over to witness, feel and participate in. For all who come after me, know that you will experience a depth at the Mary Magdalene retreat that is impossible to recreate elsewhere. I have walked through truly magical forests. The land here is saturated with the flavor of Mary. The birds sing her songs, the wind carries her love to me. In the cave I experienced a transmission that changed this life forever. Mary is alive. Her love and teachings permeated my heart as I kept opening ever deeper. Nicola is a mystic, ecstatic and at the same time grounded, who embodies the feminine teachings. She created a safe environment, where I could relax into and open in ways I never have and experience real and profound love…Nicola presents her message as not exclusive but one that includes all the paths of love and the way of the feminine. Humongous appreciation.” ~ Robbyn Paxton, Seattle
“There are no words to express how this profound journey is. Something deep within was unlocked and healed in me, and I will carry that forth into the world forever. Nicola is an amazing guide and teacher and she held us with such great love.”
Erin Moreno, Healer
“….I feel a deep and real connection with the divine feminine that I never felt before. A wholeness that I didn’t even know was missing. Nicola does an amazing job at guiding the group but does it in a way that feels also very personal. She holds space for everyone to get exactly what they need in a very organic way. The retreat has a beautiful structure and Nicola is constantly tuning in to adjust the process-based people’s needs. It is very authentic and truly the embodiment of love. It truly is an honor to have received the call and to have walked this path with beloved sisters and our wonderful teacher, Nicola. “ Alejandra Ortiz, USA“
“No words can express my gratitude for this outstanding retreat that changed my life. I have attended many retreats, but this was truly exceptional. I am forever grateful in my heart for this profound journey home.”
Salvadora, Community Leader, Spain
“This retreat is so profound. Thank you dear Nicola, for guiding and holding me through my fear and into my true purpose. It was a real shift into a new life and my work carries now the transmission through which I guide others. Thank you so much for guiding me home!”
Alwine Böhme, Germany, Healer
“My heart is so full with the love I have for you, the divine feminine teachings, and our continuing journey together spreading true love to all beings and our beloved mother earth. I am honored and in awe to learn from you. Thank you for walking the walk, your integrity, and being a true teacher on this path. You are a hidden gem in a mass amount of surface teachers. I am filled with grace that I have found my home with Magdalena and with you.” ~ Shannon Elliott, USA, Women Leader and Healer
“A supreme opportunity to dive deeply into the soul of the sacred feminine, to return to her womb, to be reborn in the fire of holy love. It was epic! Nicola held an exquisite container for deep healing, awakening and embodiment. Truly it was an initiation into the deeper mysteries of life and the feminine. I carry this tremendous blessing into my life and work, which will benefit many. Thank you with all my heart.”
Ashanna Solaris, Workshop Leader, CA
“Nicola is an extraordinary feminine leadership facilitator and teacher. And she is a natural, highly gifted and inspiring teacher and speaker. She guides from her heart and offers very powerful skills to simply, yet profoundly, connect with and guide people. I gained invaluable skills to lead and relate with more presence and authenticity that I will use both in my personal and professional relationships. After taking the training, it was clear that she is truly an expert in relating and leadership skills and very passionate about her work. She is a gem and I highly recommend her courses, retreats and professional trainings. ” ~ Char Longwello, Business Woman
“We are so appreciative of your expertise, skillfulness, gifts- and most of all – your heart. Thank you for this amazing and special women leadership training you provided for our national women leaders group. We will continue to use the practices and skills on how to lead from the feminine and connectedness. You made a real difference. Thank you so much!” ~ Linda Patty, Main Women Chapter Leaders for DFW.
“The ceremony, teachings, and group experience were pitch-perfect. It brought women home to ourselves, intimately connected us with each other and our own divine feminine source. Nicola’s teaching and group facilitation skills are excellent. With natural grace and ease, she guided us to step into the sacred feminine in a way that was grounded, real and empowering. She made it safe and easy for us to let go of old patterns, to open and experience the sacred, and to profoundly connect. Nicola Amadora embodies what she teaches, she truly works magic and creates a feast for the heart. We’re so grateful, thank you Nicola for your beautiful gifts!” Marci Schimoff, Professional Speaker, Author of Happy for no Reason
Nicola is a wise woman. She teaches and leads with her heart, with a gentleness and strength that could only come from many years of practicing compassion and diving into the deeply uncomfortable places that are so difficult for many of us to go. What I appreciate so much about her is that she doesn’t deal with only the symptoms of a chaotic world, but really worked with us on getting down to the core of our pains, hidden in our most tender places. The tools that I have learned on this retreat will never be forgotten, nor any of the people that traveled down this path with me. Writing about it now reminds me of that connectedness, and I feel a great deal of warmth and presence within my whole body, which is exactly how I want to live my life. To anyone considering whether to join Nicola on a retreat, a training, or even just a walk down the street, say YES! Your whole self will love you for it.” ~ Kelli Radwanski, Artist, Los Angeles
“If you are ready to live your soul’s calling this is for you. It far surpassed my expectations. The community of women, the leadership of Nicola, the power and the depth – all this came together in synchronicity to elicit life-altering insights and courage! I have access to the Divine Feminine in ways I only dreamed of in the past. Nicola is an exquisite companion guide for anyone yearning to step into their authentic feminine power. She embodies and shows the way of love in real life. If you feel it calling you, open yourself to this opportunity.”
Joy Taylor, Author of Inspired and Business Coach
” I was bold and answered the calling. I am grateful beyond words that I took the leap with faith. Nicola held a container that I needed to feel safe to let the feminine unleash in me. I felt so deeply embraced by Nicola, the women, and Her. It was an experience of a lifetime, and it is forever alive in me and my walk in the world. I can help people so much more and feel so guided and connected. Thank you Nicola. Through your hand I found my place and home!”
Maura Furness, Social Worker, CA

Mary Rafftey, CEO, USA

This was incredible, lifechanging and it continues on in my life. I am so grateful”.
Patti Paxton-Ebert, Canada

This profoundly beautiful pilgrimage and training helped me to open my heart and let Her enter. It opened me to the innermost sanctum of my being. It was truly life-changing. How can I thank you Nicola and write down what happened as you guided me through this process of rebirthing? Opening up so fully and letting it/her take me all the way was profound. It changed my life and I will be forever grateful for that in my heart and soul. Thank you for your love and strength, for your beauty, authenticity and vulnerability in the way you taught this incredible weeklong retreat. It was more than I could ever imagine.” Annelot Borleff, Holland

Marlene Wolf, Germany
“Thank you so much Nicola for your love, generosity and dedication on the path of true love. You taught and guided so amazing and created a container where I could totally be myself and feel loved. This week has given me a new birth- enlivenment and the capacity to feel, stand and live from truth. I am so deeply grateful for your very real transmission of Mary Magdalene. This retreat was such a great gift and life changer for me. I feel in my heart that I am a torch bearer of her!”

“Nicola’s retreat changed my life. Completely. In ways that are hard to put into words. I found the deepest parts of myself. I discovered aspects of myself that were hidden and painful to witness, but it helped to free my soul. I didn’t even realize I was living so far from the truth. But I now feel a groundedness, a peace, a clarity in my body and soul that I haven’t felt – maybe ever in this lifetime. I see my future. I see my life. And there is so much love, presence. So much light. I found a sisterhood, a group of women living their truth, with hearts made of gold. They’re now family and women I can depend on, to help hold me and speak my truth. I found my womenhood, my divine feminine, my path, my inner child. And I found myself. She was gone, hiding. But She is here and she isn’t leaving. Nicola, from the depths of my heart, thank you. Thank you for helping to save my life.” ~ Rachel Sims, RachelSimsHealing.com
