Spiritual Retreats for Women

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.

“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

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

Dr. Nicola Amadora has worked extensively with women from all walks of life since 30 years. Retreats and courses are held at various locations and at different times. For updates please check the calendar or contact us.
