“When we focus our gifts and talents that are inherent to us as women, we are able to live from a place of authenticity, courage and clarity.” ~Katalin Koda, author of Fire of the Goddess
What is the Fire of the Goddess?
The Fire of the Goddess is the active creative power that resides within the divine feminine. Fire is symbolic of spirit and light embodied and contains within its essence the power to transmute, transform, to burn away the old and make room for the new. By connecting to our wild and brilliant nature within, we can begin to dialogue and heal our indigenous soul. Indigenous means native to a place and we are all native to the earth, we are all native to our own mother. Reclaiming our connection to the beauty and power of the Fire of the Goddess is our birthright as human beings. The Fire of the Goddess is the divine creative spark that resides within us and speaks to us from the depths of our souls.
What do you mean by the ‘divine feminine?’
The divine feminine is a part of our ancient heritage. As Dan Brown so poignantly points out in his book, The DaVinci Code, “Two thousand years ago, we lived in a world of Gods and Goddesses. Today, we live in a world solely of Gods. Women in most cultures have been stripped of their spiritual power.” Celebrating the divine feminine is the work of the Fire of the Goddess Retreats, to reclaim our right to view the feminine as sacred. Sacred means holy and to regard with reverence, thus honoring the divine feminine means to regard the feminine with reverence. This includes women. Women’s bodies. The earth and nature. Natural processes of the earth. Natural processes of women’s bodies. This does not exclude men, instead reminds us the connection we all have together. The divine feminine is the holy place of being in the shape of woman. The divine feminine is deeply rooted in the earth and her natural processes, in time as cycles, understanding birth, death and rebirth.

November 2016: Fire of the Goddess Divine Feminine Retreat on Big Island, Hawaii
Join author and visionary Katalin Koda, and movement and Yoga teacher, Molly McLaughlin to activate your power, love and wisdom on the stunning Big Island of Hawaii. This is the fiery birthplace of new land and with the lava flowing steadily on the island, we are inspired to create our lives anew. This retreat is for any woman yearning to activate and deepen her connection to her inner divine feminine.
