Awaken | Heal | Transfom
September 16-23, 2021
“If you think sexual and spiritual bliss aren’t one and the same,
then you haven’t experienced the Path to Pleasure.” Tosh
Are you a professional Black woman who feels overworked, inderappreciated, and just plain old exhausted? Have you lost touch with the feminine side of yourself?
Between navigating life, work, and family, things can feel fast paced, demanding, and stressful. It’s easy to get lost in the sauce and end up at the bottom of a long, ever-growing to-do list.
Black women are groomed to carry heavy weight, to suck it up, to endure––all while still getting shit done.
Throughout your life, you may have experienced trauma that impacts your femininity including physical abuse, sexual abuse pregnancy, menopause, fibroids, breast cancer, weight gain or loss, shame & guilt around sex.
Did you know that these traumas can often be stored in the womb space? It’s time to acknowledge the impact that these traumas have had on you sexually, mentally, emotionally and spiritually in order to begin to heal and transform. It’s time to ask what happened to YOU.
YOUR needs met?
YOUR heart’s desires?
To all the black women pouring from an empty cup: Take a break. It’s time to heal.
You deserve to live every day of your life full of joy and ease. As a Black woman, you deserve to heal the wounds of suffering, striving, and let go of the burden of strength (you know the whole be strong for everyone else).
Now is the time to shift from overworked and overwhelmed to satisfied and inspired. Let’s unlock your deepest desires. Because, in this sacred space, we believe all things are possible.
The Black Goddess Path to Pleasure Retreat is an invitation to step into your feminine power, begin to release old traumas and tap into your deepest desires, which may be buried or forgotten.

This Retreat is FOR US, BY US — designed as a sacred healing space.

Selamat datang di Bali ( Welcome to Bali)
Upon landing at the Ngurah Rai International Airport, a driver will pick you up and whisk you away to your gorgeous hotel villa, located just outside of Ubud. You will be able to check-in at 3:00 pm. Take a few hours to unpack, explore the villa, and get comfortable. At 5:00 pm, we’ll officially kickoff the retreat, to be followed by our welcome dinner.
You’ll drift off to sleep in your beautifully appointed modern room surrounded by a tropical garden and nestled by a sounds of nature lulling you to restful sleep.
On your first full retreat day, we’ll begin to gently slow down our active minds and bodies by practicing a morning meditation and tapping into stillness, followed by a restorative yoga class. Beginner yogis no worries, this is a gentle class to stretch and relax our bodies.
After a delicious and healthy breakfast, we’ll explore Ubud and do have some retail therapy.:-)
Following our group lunch in an authentic Balinese restaurant, we’ll spend the afternoon and evening relaxing at the spa.
Yes, after long travels and shopping, you’re body will welcome hours of massage and pampering at a beautiful Balinese spa. Aaahhh.
My muscles are already relaxing at the thought of it. This is how a Black Goddess deserves to be treated, don’t you agree?
As you relax and settle in to the fact that you’re actual in Bali (pinch me:-), we’ll discuss all of the ways, big and small you nourish your mind, body and soul as well as the ways that you rob yourself of experiencing pleasure cutting yourself off of from enjoyment, gratification and desire, essentially cutting yourself off from connecting with your own feminine nature.
During this week, you’ll commit to indulging, receiving and allowing good things into your life. It’s time to begin to awaken your divine feminine.
Today, the journey to healing and awakening gets deeper as we dedicate this day to experiencing different forms of healing from our morning meditation, to our restorative yoga class, and our awakening your divine feminine session exploring tools to access our divine feminine and how we can use those powers to create more pleasure in our lives.
Later in the afternoon, we’ll experience live sound healing. Everything (including you) is about vibration and balance. Your body and all matter exist at different rates of vibration and have their own resonant frequencies. Therefore, sound and vibration play a fundamental role in your life by affecting physical, mental and spiritual levels of your human being. Sound healing allows you to: raise your energy, release yourself from stress, expand creativity and consciousness, improve memory, and unlock your potential. Experience a journey into sound healing designed with frequencies guided to all 7 chakras with digital waves and live instruments.
We continue our journey to awaken and to heal by going to the sacred healing waters to purify our minds and souls. The Hindu believe that these waters have magical powers and local Balinese come here to purify themselves under the water spouts that feed the pools.
We’ll have our own purification ceremony symbolizing the release of impure or negative thoughts, memories and experiences that haunt us or hold us back from moving into our full power as the Black Goddesses that we are.
The afternoon will take us to a with a visit and taste authentic Bali teas and coffees at Satria Coffee Plantation, located in a lush jungle setting. We’ll have to judge for ourselves whether the coffee produced there, deserves to be the most expensive coffee on the planet.
We’ll finish the amazing day of our Balinese cultural experience with dinner with a local Balinese family, to experience real authentic Balinese culture in a traditional family compound. We’ll hear about the traditions of Bali, the meaning of offerings, learn how to make an offering, enjoy an indonesian buffet, all followed by traditional dance performances. A perfect ending to a perfect day!
On our 5th day, we’ll start putting it all together, as we begin our day with entering the stillness, our yoga practice and our sisterhood gathering exploring how to now use the feminine power that we’re accessing to create the lives we truly desire.
Your afternoon will be spent as you wish, exploring the countryside, taking a nap, sitting by the pool relaxing, taking a Balinese cooking class or a number of other activities that are available to you.
The day is yours to explore and enjoy.
On our last full day before the end of the journey, you’ll spend your afternoon doing that one thing you wanted to do that you may not have been able to because of time or schedule. Maybe you want to go back to the healing waters, head to the beach, see an authentic Balinese healer (it worked for Julia Roberts, in Eat, Pray, Love:-) it’s up to you.
And our final evening will, along with your new sisterhood, you’ll put together everything you’ve seen, heard and learned over the week and take some time to integrate them into your heart and mind. We’ll have our final sacred ceremony together committing to the grand visions we’ve created and to continue the practices that we’ve been using throughout the journey. We’ve awakened our Divine Feminine and claimed our power as Black Goddesses. Time to give thanks and celebrate.
Titiang lungsur mapamit dumun,” (Goodbye). We say goodbye to this beautiful and rich island nation, you now feel more balanced, more at peace, calmer and more powerful, not in an aggressive, masculine way, but rather in a softer, subtler, quieter way. You’ll follow your intuition now and take inspired action this coming year. That will lead you to experience more love, beauty, abundance than you have before. You’ll always remember the way you felt during your meditation times, at yoga practices, during your sound healing and under the healing waters. You felt restored, whole and balanced and now you’ll take that back home with you. Renewed and Nourished until your next journey with the sisterhood to refuel and recharge. You now commit your continued spiritual practice, regular retreats and living in balance with your divine femininity.

Want to hear from 2 women who took a past journey?
Still unsure about visiting Bali? Well, because this is no ordinary vacation, sis’, here are my top 10 reasons why you MUST join us on this sacred journey:
THE SISTERHOOD! Imagine experiencing this amazing adventure with women like you: progressive, like-minded and open to unique, cultural and spiritual experiences.
During our time together, they’ll be acceptance without judgement and love without expectations. No explanations needed. you’ll be so surpised how connected, understood and supported you’ll feel.
Forget about shallow networking; you’ll forge bonds of support and love that will last a lifetime!
THE BEAUTY! Fifty shades of green best describe the tropical surroundings of these islands. Lush waterfalls, mountainous jungle ranges, soaring volcanoes, evergreen rice paddies, fresh water streams, Monkey temples, hidden cliff face beaches, infinity pools – the list goes on.
Plus, there are nearby untouched islands with just a short boat ride away – think pristine white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters
THE FOOD (OMG)! You won’t be able to stop talking about the delicious flavors. Bali is a foodie heaven full vegan, vegetarian, plant based foods that are healthy and organic or you can try delicious chicken skewers, oxtail soup, or seafood fried rice.
The curry, coconut or chili sauces are out of this world. So much variety and options to choose from.
You can’t go wrong with whatever you eat.
THE CULTURE! Bali is rich in culture and steeped in tradition and customs. Festivals, plays, dance, theater– there’s always some form of artistic expression of the diverse Balinese, Hindu and Buddhist traditions.
It will be a wonderful to experience a culture completely different from our Western world.
Due to the fact that Bali is a popular tourism destination for travelers all over the world, around 80% of its economy is related to tourism. The people depend and welcome tourism and know how to care and treat visitors like no other place.
They are kind, friendly and are almost never angry. In fact, anger is an emotion that is viewed as disrespectful. After your visit, you’ll know people visit Bali over and over again.
Combining Hinduism with some Buddhist mythology, ancestral spirits, and indigenous deities, religion is the soul of Indonesia; life rotates around religious ceremonies and temples, especially in Bali. That’s why it’s called the Island of the Gods.
The Balinese hold many ceremonies and celebrations throughout the year, a few of which we will enjoy. From ceremonial offerings to purification ceremonies to sound healing, we’ll explore this rich and sacred culture and more importantly, connect deeper with our own sacredness and into our own Divinity.
From homemade traditional souvenirs to high end designer clothing, the shopping scene in Bali extends from traditional markets to stylish boutiques. Our US Dollar goes far in Bali, so bring an extra suitcase, or be willing to pick one up along the way!
You can shop for handmade arts, from humble wood key chains for less than $1 to high-end artistic pieces.
The picturesque bohemian town of Ubud is your wellness destination on the island. Bali has one of the highest densities of spas in the world.
You do not have to go far to find a massage in Bali – the island has around 1,200 spas. Traditional Balinese massage is, of course, a must.
And there’s no better time to have a massage than after traveling a long way. So, one of first orders of business is to take rubbed up…
The Balinese use both traditional healing, including holistic therapies, massages, natural herbs and spices, energy healing, sound healing and other ancient practices to restore balance and peace to the mind and body.
And we’re going to soak up as much healing as we can during our time in Bali. If you’re looking for healing in your mind, body or soul, then Bali is for you.
I want you to hear this reason from a past retreat participant, who said this about her transformational experience on a Black Butterfly Journeys Retreat: Traveling with Regine has been absolutely life changing. She chooses locations with the intent of opening your heart. She serves as an excellent guide while giving the space to grow and learn on your own throughout the trip. Her guidance allowed me to find out so many things about myself and I will never be the same. Liz G
You’ll definitely experience a transformation that you won’t have in any other situation. The inner journey will be the most important one that you will take because that’s the one that will change your life for the better.
I think I covered everything, but just in case if you have more questions on your mind, here are some answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.
Just so I’m clear, this isn’t a typical vacation, right?
Exactly, it’s a retreat, which in some ways, it’s like a vacation, except that instead of the focus being on the outside of you, the focus is on the inside. On a transformational journey, you will do some vacation stuff, but the real experience is all about the inner you. Sure, we will tour sites and enjoy the beaches, the food and culture of the people, but all of that is the backdrop to the main event, which is you. A retreat is your opportunity to check-in with yourself, create yourself and love and nurture yourself for an uninterrupted length of time. And because you have Tosh and I helping and supporting you on your journey, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
I’ve never been so far away and I have no idea what to do?
As a retreat participant, you’ll never feel confused or alone while preparing for Bali. If you have a specific question, our team is available to assist you. You’ll feel fully taken care of and supported from the day you book your trip until you arrive in Bali. You can also expect a pre-departure call with our team to answer any finals questions you have prior to the trip.
About 30 days prior to departure you’ll receive suggested packing list, advice on how to arrive, as well as any other information that may need to be customized to you.
The Black Goddess Retreat in Bali is limited because we want you to have an intimate experience connecting with other like-minded individuals. Keeping the group small allows each participant to experience simplicity and meaningful connection.
What about the food and drink, are they safe to consume?
Yes. We will be dining at either the resort or established restaurants vetted by our tour operator. Bottle water will be the order of the day. And no ice please, thank you. But just in case, we will make sure to have tummy aids. If you have ever been to Mexico or any developing country, you know what I mean. Things happen, of course, but you should be fine.
How do I get there?
You will fly into Indonesia. Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as Denpasar International Airport, is located in southern Bali. Once you arrive, you will be picked up and taken to our home away from home.
Will I need to exchange money?
Rupiahs used in Bali and are available at banks and currency exchange centers upon arrival in Bali. Credit cards are accepted at most hotels, restaurants, stores. Most transactions are completed in rupiahs and a surcharge frequently is added for credit card payments, so check with your credit card company.
How do I sign up?
Simple! Click the sign up button below and it will take you to the registration page. From there, you can make your payment and you’ll be all set!
I’m a little concerned about all of this pleasure and sexuality talk? Will their be any public nudity, touching or inappropriate behavior?
The Path to Pleasure Retreat is all about the relationship between your sexuality and your spirituality. During retreat you will not be nude in public nor will you touch anyone else. Throughout the retreat, you’ll be given exercises to be conducted privately. and you’re free to choose your level of participation.
We’re here to answer any of your questions. Email us at email@example.com or you can schedule a call to talk by going to the calendar link below.
“My spirit has been re-awakened and my purpose affirmed. Each activity along this journey touched a space within my soul that had been laying dormant waiting and yearning to be exposed. I truly and genuinely know that the power lies within me to do all things as a gift from the Creator. I didn’t understand it on the front end, I have been transformed and I am eternally grateful for your vision and commitment to nurturing mind, body and spirit.” Anita
I’M READY FOR MY TRANSFORMATION!
