Testimonials from the Self-Love Retreats

 

The Woman’s Earth is an irreplaceable beacon of inspiration and sisterhood. I attended the Self-Love Retreat in 2018 and needless to say, my life will never be the same. From attending workshops geared around self-love and infused with guided meditation, to basking in the sun during yoga on the beach and standing tall in the middle of the ocean. It was clear that Jai Pierre Raven planned each moment with love and intentionality and because of that, everlasting bonds were forged and unforgettable memories were made. I am both blessed and honored to be a part of such an incredible group and I recommend it to everyone!

When I went to the first retreat in 2017, I went to take some time away to relax and have fun but I found so much more! I found a sisterhood where women (like me) were taught how to heal from the past and chart their future by taking care of themselves FIRST. I had lived with pain and anger for so long that it had become normal. I just kept going with this day after day, year after year! I was never told that I could release this pain and be HEALED, be WHOLE again. The Woman’s Earth showed me how to release this pain so I could live UNAPOLOGETICALLY!! Now I’m living my best life!!! I deserve it! I owe it to myself, my family and my ancestors (my grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother & those mothers that never touched American soil) to be happy!!! I will always support The Woman’s Earth! Come see what this sisterhood is all about.

The Woman’s Earth is a sacred space and community and I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many amazing women who deeply support each other towards healing mind, body, and spirit. The 2018 Self- Love Retreat was magical!!!!! The retreat inspired authentic experiences of culture, sisterhood, self-love, healing, releasing, and growth. These experiences have truly nurtured my soul and I am forever greatful for the healing Jai Pierre Raven facilitated.

Beyond the retreats, The Woman’s Earth is my favorite place to breathe and sooth my spirit. I am always uplifted when I enter the space or presence of my fellow tribe sisters. I enjoy the yoga, meditation, and dance classes at the studio and the spa services are amazing. I find myself leaving on cloud 9 every time!

Where to begin. I’ll start by saying that I have never actually been to The Women’s Earth in Houston but I can say the love these women exude extends far beyond their state borders. I met over 50 women at the Self Love Retreat in Tobago this past November. I traveled alone from the East Coast and met 50 strangers in Tropical paradise who would soon become my Houston Sistas! From the moment I met them they welcomed me with a hug! And more and more hugs! Lol I felt so loved from day one. These women are so dynamic and powerful in their own spaces I am so honored to be associated with all of them! Each one brings their own special “sauce” to The Women’s Earth which is why it’s so special. Women empowering women, lifting one another up, supporting each other and encouraging one another my heart is so full!! Jai, you have done a wonderful job of bringing all of these women together in a space where they are loved and accepted for who they are and what they bring to the table. Although I am in Nj they make sure I am able to participate virtually in the chats and discussions which is awesome. I am excited to see what’s in store for The Women’s Earth, I know more positive things are yet to come!

I am STILL basking in the glory of the 1st Annual Self Love Retreat 2017! Almost two weeks ago I arrived to a beautiful house on the beach alongside an amazing group of women and fully trusted Jai and her Tribe to pour into each of our lives. The laughter that filled those beach houses is going to be hard to be matched! We healed at our own pace, released, gained perspective, cried and danced...a lot! LOL This was undeniably my best gift to myself this year and my passport is ready for the 2018 Retreat!

I attended the Self-Love Retreat [2017] and was forever changed by the sisterhood, communal support, and empowerment I felt during that weekend. It was so uplifting to see women of all shapes, sizes, ages, and shades coming together to seek strength and healing from within and from each other. I had never met any of these people before the retreat but I came away feeling like I had dozens of new sisters. I can’t wait to attend the retreat again next year

A month later and I am still speechless after attending the inaugural Self-Love Retreat! As a presenter, I was so excited and had no idea what to expect. I was there prepared to hold space for the healing of the 50+ sisters that attended and I ended up experiencing my own healing as well! The energy that was present is indescribable. Jai has a special calling on her life to bring women together for the purpose of healing and true sisterhood! I am so grateful to be a part of this network and even more so to have attended the first of many self-love retreats. Every woman who attended left renewed, rejuvenated, healed, and at peace. I have never felt so empowered in my life.

I attended the Self-Love Retreat and as someone who never connects with their emotions or with the experiences of others, I allowed myself to embrace the challenge. It was rewarding to be vulnerable and therapeutic to cry (although I blamed it on allergies the first couple of times lol). I loved from the moment I and the ladies arrived that feeling of comfort. The space was safe, sacred, and facilitated sisterhood.

I am feeling blessed because I signed up and attended the Self Love Retreat. Upon signing up I knew that it was possible that I might be only one of two Latina Women attending and that I wouldn’t know anyone but one other lady. But it didn’t matter to me because I know my Self Care is a priority! This retreat exceeded my expectations - THANK YOU! I felt welcomed, and genuine love from women I was meeting for the first time. The retreat gave me quality time with other women, me time, beach time, opportunities for prayer, reflection and self growth! So happy that I attended!

I just attended the first annual Self Love Retreat and from the minute I arrived I felt the magnitude of what the weekend would be. Every detail was carefully planned and the experience was mind blowing. We laughed, we cried, we grew, we released. It. Was. Simple. Amazing!!!!! I wish I could do it all over again. Such gifted women and such an amazing experience.
