Program Description

For over a decade, Yeshe Matthews has been leading retreats for large and small groups, and for 6 years she has been a dedicated Priestess of Aphrodite. During the Aphrodite's Apothecary Retreat, Yeshe invites you to see yourself through the eyes of the Goddess, the eyes of love, to drop self-judgment and fear of being seen, and to commit to honoring your own beauty every day.

This retreat is designed to support women of any age who are ready to put aside negative self-talk and to focus on bringing forward their self-love and self-care as a radical antidote to anxiety and discomfort about their bodies. During this weekend, you will be invited to conjure the spirit of love that starts within, and pours its brilliant light out into the world.

This retreat is an opportunity to:

  • prioritize self-care in a helpful, guilt-free setting
  • honor your body with sacred beauty rituals
  • move through stories that limit you from feeling free and gorgeous
  • create luscious, unique products to take home and use when you need a magical boost
  • call forth the love from within that you want to share with the world
