Deep Feminine Rising

Courses & Retreats


The Patriarchy is crumbling. She is rising. From the deep, dark, the forgotten, and oppressed. Her voice is whispering in the dark of night when control has slipped through your fingers…you are hearing what you might have denied, pushed aside in broad daylight. Oh, it feels so unnerving, unfamiliar, and yet deeply known what is awaiting behind the veils. Yes, women are afraid of Her too. When fierce power emerges from the belly below; it can be overwhelming. Power was dangerous, they burned her on the stake for centuries. It is in your cells and bones. And yet, before you turn back to the familiar and seemingly safe, let her look at you. With such tender, loving embrace she takes you, melting your resistance into non-existence. She sure has her own way. And she is waking in you, now, when the world needs the Feminine to survive and thrive. You find her in the deep. Let her rise. She is liberating, enlivening, birthing a whole new world through you, me, all of us. It is the time!

On Retreat we dive into the Feminine, to let her rise up from deep within. And together we are birthing forth a new way to live in love on this earth.


In a safely held and sacred space, we enter the Holy Fire of our Soul. We connect with the real, the messy and beautiful, allowing our wounds to gently heal, to experience that we are profoundly held beyond any concept the mind can tell, to merge with this life-giving and restoring juice, and to gather the courage to step boldly into power and break the chains of lies. In an authentic way, we connect to meet soul to soul, human to human, and as women, we walk the path of true immanence, where the She is felt and visible in everyday life. We open the door to ancient feminine teachings and learn practices that help you to feel and connect all the way, to experience, to embody, and to live as Her, expressed as utterly and uniquely You.

On retreat, you are supported in this important awakening, birthing, and embodiment in an organic, empowering and wholesome way. When you leave the retreat you will walk in a different way in this world, remembering the sacred with every step you take, making your home in truth, held in love, and following what your soul is calling you to create.

The “Deep Feminine Rising” Retreats and Courses are offered worldwide as in-person groups and online by Nicola Amadora. She has been teaching women for decades in a deep, real and sacred way. The themes may differ, but each retreat serves the same deep feminine heart. All retreats provide refined meditation, embodiment, relational practices, ceremony, and profound teachings that unite the feminine soul and our human womanhood.

In a time of great challenge in our world we need the wisdom of awakened women. The wealth that resides in the depth of our being and our connectedness with all of life can help us to be a beacon, even when all else falls apart. This retreat is also an invitation to celebrate the gift you are and to strengthen each other in shining our “wisdom light” as women in the world.


On this retreat you are invited to honor, trust, and to connect deeply with yourself and other women. The intention is to nourish what is natural, alive and wise in us and to embrace what is longing to come home. Meditation, movement, sharing, teaching offer support to open and rest into our true nature and allow it to live us more fully.


Awakening into the divine feminine means to discover our unique way as women, to find and speak our voice, to celebrate our body and sensuality, to release cultural conditioning, to uncover what is true in us and to claim our gifts. We are guided to trust, to honor and love ourselves. Meditation, ancient shakti practice, dance, song, art, writing, sharing, sacred ceremony will assist us to unfold deeper into ourselves, into connection with each other and to embody the beauty of our womanhood.

Reviews from Women:


“The event was outstanding and pitch-perfect. Nicola’s leadership and group facilitation skills are excellent. With natural grace and ease she guided a whole group of women to step into the sacred feminine in a way that was grounded, real, and empowering. She made it safe and easy for women to let go of old patterns, to open and experience the sacred, to deeply connect to themselves and with each other. Nicola Amadora embodies what she teaches, she truly works magic and creates a feast for the heart. Thank you so much for this gift!”Marci Schimoff, Author of ‘Happy for no Reason’.

“I had a transformational experience working with Nicola. I came to the women’s retreat at the end of my rope, feeling hopeless and was done with teachings or any other healing modality, because nothing would help. I left the retreat with a new sense of purpose, a willingness to keep going and be of service to the world. She gave me faith when I needed it most.” ~ Joanna Arenstein, Sebastapol

Nicola is a treasure and a wise woman. She speaks and leads with her heart with a gentleness and divine strength that could only come from many years of practicing compassion and diving into the deep 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, or in therapy, or even just a walk down the street, say YES! Your whole self will love you for it.” ~ Kelli Radwanski, Artist, Los Angeles

“The retreat was inspiring, fresh, deep, heartfelt, and full of hope for me. I came with my daughter and it meant a lot for me. Thank you Nicola” ~ Dee Eastmann, Los Angeles

I wanted to thank you for your wisdom, warm heart, and grounded way you lead with the retreat, truly creating an honest, authentic space for our group to unfold into. I’ve since been sitting with and working with some of the pieces that were brought up that day, particularly the practices of honoring my edge, dropping into the belly, and speaking with nature on a more consistent basis. I was truly touched by your powerful story and strength of faith in it.” ~ Lauren Allegra Elio, Los Angeles

Alles ist jetzt anders, and it feels good. The retreat was like a glimpse into paradise, and I am so grateful. Der Himmel hat sich geöffnet und alles Unwahrhaftige ist weggefallen. Genau so wie es sein muss. Ever since the retreat I feel so much more connected and held. This is so important and I never really felt it in such a solid and real way. Marlene Wolf, Germany

The retreat was truly enlightening, to be able to reconnect with myself, each other, nature, the divine. The energy and authenticity were inspiring!” ~ Katie Byram, Martinez
