Refining Your Medicine Training | Goa, India

November 10th - 17th, 2019



Refining Your Medicine is a training for the Space Holders. 

Gathering our roots and drinking from our well of wisdom as Women is our gift in this lifetime. Throughout this week together we'll be guiding the way for immersed transformational work and creating a sanctuary for surrendering and receiving.

This training, this gathering, is for those who wish to understand the environment and communities they work within and to become their greatest offering. It is for the teachers, the mentors, the healers, and those who wish to belong to themselves and believe in their intuitive and healing capabilities. It is to help you find your authentic voice so that you can trust in and Refine Your Medicine. 

Join Michelle and Kelsi and other curious, medicinal women as we gather once again at the gorgeous oasis, Samata Holistic Center in Goa, India.


Samata & The Land

Samata Holistic Retreat Center is Goa’s most gorgeous and peaceful retreat center. With a fusion of Balinese teak architecture, weaved in between rice fields and coconut groves, all tucked away on an organic farm. We will be surrounded by lush palm trees and the sounds of birds and nature. All close to the beaches of Goa, home to sunset drumming sessions and colorful shopping stalls. 


The Food

The curated menu is vegetarian based and is sourced from the homegrown organic garden on the premises. Each Ayurvedic offering is created by talented chefs who take great care to produce vibrant and healing meals. We know how important it is to have not only nourishing, but delicious food while on retreat...Samata does too! 

Food allergies can be accommodated for! Simply let us know.

Getting There

AIR – Closest airport is the Goa International airport, (67km). It is well connected with international carriers and budget airlines. Airport shuttles can be arranged for you to Samata, simply let us know if you'd like to book this service.
TRAIN  – You can arrive via train if you are adventurous! From Mumbai it is about a 10 hour trip, this would need to be booked on your own and well in advance.
TAXI – You can also take a taxi from Mumbai if you wish. It is roughly a 9 hour drive.

Typical taxi cost from Goa Airport to Samata is $40 (one way). Once we have everyone’s flight time we try and get you in taxis together.

We can help with arrival transport just ask! 


Who Is This Training For? In Short...

This training is for you if you're a yoga teacher, a healer, a breathworker, a therapist, a coach, a mentor, a doula, a ceremony creator, a facilitator, or someone who holds space regularly, or is desiring to do so. 

This is not a training for you if you're desiring to learn fluent Sanskirt, how to do a handstand, a pure yoga training, or have resistance to shadow work or being in ritual and ceremony with other like-minded women.
