Venus - Women's Weekend Retreat


  • Inner Path 200 Commercial St., Nevada City, CA 95959 (map)

Join Ashley Apple for a powerful women/women identified only weekend of embodied practice, breath work, movement, Tantra, sexual energy cultivation, grounding, nature and ritual. In mythology Venus, also known as Aphrodite, was the Goddess of love and beauty. To embrace the Venutian energies of expansion, art, dance, pleasure, beauty and the love of nature is to activate a strong current of energy that lies in everyone. When women embrace this radiance, pleasure, presence and purpose come to the surface.

In this weekend together we will focus on grounding our energy into the earth and activating out sexual power. Embracing our pleasure through the activation of the senses and our relationship with our radiance. Together we will practice each day and witness ourselves and each other flower open in power, pleasure and purpose. Learn the art of daily ritual and design your own to connect to your power and Spirit.

Just some of the things we will experience on our weekend journey:

  • grounding exercises for embodiment and sourcing

  • working with intuition

  • initiations in creating personal daily ritual

  • using resins, essential oils, hyrdosols, plants in ritual

  • cultivation of female sexual energy with breath work and movement

  • radiance switch activation and practice

  • connecting our voice with our heart, sex and mind

  • elixirs, chocolate and herbal treats for enhancing energetic awareness

  • sacred sharing circles
