What is the true potential of women in the 21st Century? What role do women have in creating a new culture and a new world?
This retreat is all about the role that women will play in the next evolutionary phase of humanity. It will be a celebration of what is possible for women who are willing to change, transcend old structures and to come together as true spiritual sisters so that something new can be born.
We will go on a journey together looking into the culturally created limitations of women and more importantly our capacity to transcend these limitations.
Meditation will be a big part of this retreat. There will be guided meditation sessions to connect to the deeper part of oneself where there are no problems to overcome. As you go deeper you will find a place in yourself where you are already free and unlimited. This place is the foundation of the retreat and will give you the possibilty to look at your life through a different lens. There is no meditation experience needed.
Our time together will be both cosmic and very practical. Each woman will have the opportunity to look into what holds her back and in doing so can experience the universal nature of all the obstacle she thinks she has. Finding out that your ‘issues’ are really everyone else’s issues is a very liberating moment and it will break protective barriers in you.
The aim of the retreat is to give women a new perspective to interpret one’s life. This perspective is based on evolutionary spirituality and it will help you to experience yourself as part of an evolutionary process that is creative and dynamic. The historical past of women consciously and unconsciously affect how we are as women today. We will look into this history and the culture it has created so we can all understand why we think what we think and why we do what we do.
The event will be a combination of meditation, presentation, writing exercises, small discussion groups and larger group dynamic exercises.
This will be an individual and a collective journey. Experience the thrill of coming together with others in the spirit of transformation. If you would like to read an article on ‘What is an Evolutionary Enlightened Woman?’, please click here.
If you are interested in getting connected to a deeper part of yourself, transcending limitations and coming together with other women in ways you could never have imagined, this retreat is for you. All that is needed is an open heart, a willingness to drop old ideas, and an interest in transformation.

Here are what some participants from past retreats have said.
I feel that the value of this retreat was not only the content, but the way it is reverberating after in my life…
My structures were shaken by everything we felt, thought and discovered during these days about being a woman, and the freedom and responsibility that we have to act TODAY?
What struck me most in this experiment ?
Firstly , I had never been in the same context with a group of 38 women, and women united by the same purpose. A very fluid coexistence in harmony and unity that was higher from the first moment that distrust or competition.
At the same time, I felt that we were having the opportunity to live our femininity from a very ” real” and wide perspective, without being “romanticizing” ourselves (let’s join hands and do “female” dances) or focusing on body practice ( menstrual cycle, natural childbirth etc. ), but try to understand, in a comprehensive manner, what has defined a woman until now and the new woman ” that it is in our hands to give birth to!
It was so important to have for the first time the notion of women’s history from the beginning of time until now. A none victimized perspective, in order to understand what is behind us. We would not be here with the awareness that we have today without all that came before. And I know, increasingly, that the path is continuous and sometimes difficult, but the energy we get back when we give ourselves to Evolution fills everything.

I was never before with so many unknown women in a room or in a retreat, but the energy felt during two days blew me apart with amazement and excitement. Since the first meditation, I could feel we were so together, and everyone was looking forward to go deeper, to explore the unknown, to find a little bit more about each other and about this female consciousness that I always knew to be there. As the retreat went by I couldn’t stop being astonished with so much covered and so much reached in such a small amount of time. When the retreat was over and I looked at everyone’s faces, there was this relaxation and ease, this shining and lightness of being.
Ever more I believe that when a group of women come together with the same interest, dedication and above all intention, they can achieve the unachievable, go places never walked before and transform the world. And we did all that in only two days. I thank Cynthia and the ALP for making this possible and real.

The trust field created among women present in the retreat, made me start witnessing more often what kind of field i’m creating with the women in my everyday life. I became more and more aware of the shared field I co-create, be it with women, men, children, grandmother, people! I’m responding to what i’m being called to respond to. It’s not as I tend to predict in form, but it is clearly The Process, and it’s huge to be part of it! It’s not so important if I’m doing the “jobs” i know I can do, it’s much more important to realize that there’s so much more I can do, that i didn’t know, and simply let it manifest!

I had really high expectations of the Women’s Retreat. I was sure that it would be amazing, liberating, joyful, tough, strengthening. It exceeded all my expectations. I didn’t think it was be possible to achieve so much.
I saw more of conditioning in myself than I have ever seen before. The group discussions and writing exercises helped me to see our conditioning from the outside, like a bad movie that I could stop playing.
Miriam – UK
The level of confidence in which we lived during the retreat made me break some of the barriers related to my self-image. I began a journey into my deepest being, where I saw many of the female conditions that I am made of. Now I’m a more aware being.

After this retreat, it is clear to me how much cultural conditioning is keeping me away from my real capacities of connection, from building a ground of trust from where I can act and interact with others, without fear or doubt. Women have such a beauty and strength which can no longer be prevented, I/we must fully live all the dreams we wish silently. The times we are living demand great courage from each one of us.

So if there are an women (or men) reading this who feel disenfranchised, disassociated from their body, their minds, their friends and family, life, then get yourselves over here, be part of this magnificent and beautiful growing knowledge and perspective, to gain the realization that actually, we are all, already, who we need to be. No exceptions.
So did I learn all this in one retreat? Yes, absolutely. I was so ready to let go and trust, to be small. And then we all, as one, expanded. Truly amazing!
Sky – UK
Why? Why do I resist? I am more than what I appear to be, I am capable, I have the strength of the universe inside of me and this strength wants to explode and expand like a sea of stars in the sky.
Can I hide myself in the shadow of who I am? Of my infinite consciousness? No! I say No! I can’t go back. I am evolution itself and it is here and now that I am. The bell has rung and the process speeds up. There is no way to stop it…
Thank you to the ALP, thank you to Cynthia, thank you to all the women, thank you to the Universe for creating this opportunity for us to grow and expand our consciousness that is the consciousness of the Universe itself. Thank you.
Alexandra – Porto, Portugal
Thank you for the great retreat you offered us. For me it was a growing experience, holding a context, while transcending my own limitations.
It was a fantastic experience being with so many women and sensing that a new culture is manifesting right now. Its made us so very strong to understand our deep conditionings not only in our personal family story, but throughout history. Being able to name conditionings and having the tools to transcend them, liberates us to do what we always dreamt to do.
I want to say; that the teaching you transmit is a teaching of immediate transformation. very practical, very demanding and very empowering.
This is what we need to create a world in which not only we, but also our children and grandchildren can dance the universal dance of ecstasy and joy, ever creating something new.
