"The Awake Bliss Women's Revitalization Retreat was truly healing and replenishing.  I went on the retreat looking for a chance to rest and restore my mind and spirit and it lived up to every expectation.  Mira thoughtfully and lovingly created an experience to awaken the divine feminine in each participant. Activities were carefully selected and every activity soothed and stimulated a different aspect of self.   Days were filled with delicious food, dancing, laughter and reflection and women from various stages of life were able to come together and bond. I highly recommend this retreat for anyone looking for a chance to connect with themselves, mother earth and others in a safe a loving space. "
