​WHY Come?

Is your desire to live a passionate life filled with love, peace, joy, and abundance?

Do you long to be free of that which holds you back, to celebrate your life, and to feel supported and nurtured within it?

Do you long for a deeper connection with Spirit, yourself, and the Divine feminine?

Are you ready to authentically and uniquely manifest your fullest life?

Then our H.E.R. Retreat is here for you!

Lourdes is your answer! And here’s why…

While we’re together, we will be focusing on working with our Beloved Mother Mary on Self-Worth, Forgiveness, Transformation, Creativity, Empowerment, and Self-Love.

Excited? Who wouldn’t be? Now ask yourself are you ready…

To heal your heart and soul through prayer, creative expression, meditation, processes, initiations, healing baths, and other healing arts. Through these practices of releasing, forgiveness, support, intention, healing, and renewal, we will regain an understanding of how truly loved, passionate, and powerful we are and how to be fully present in each moment.

 Our Beloved Mother Mary is directing a small group of women on a sacred healing journey of the heart in October for six days in Lourdes, France and one day in Toulouse, France.  Join spiritual teacher, healer, and guide Joelle St. Germaine in this intimate gathering of twelve women who through initiations and fun and empowering group and individual exercises will open and heal their hearts and souls.

Here you will experience the love and nurturing presence of Mother Mary and the healing waters of Lourdes, as well as perfectly planned days of meaningful fun and connection, along with guided daily exercises designed to help you move forward joyfully and gracefully into the rest of your life. 

By the end of this retreat, you will be excited by your newfound sense of passion and self-love!

Your H.E.R. Retreat Leader

Joelle St. Germaine

 My greatest passion is helping others to heal their hearts and souls, especially through retreats and sacred sites tours. Besides my extreme love for dark chocolate, I love traveling to sacred places to connect in with energies of these sites to assist with helping the attendees to healing their pains, release their traumas, and transform their lives in the most loving ways. Through the last 20 years, I’ve trained and worked with some of the most powerful and talented spiritual teachers and healers, which has provided me with years of experience which I love to share with others.

To give you a little more information, I am  a spiritual teacher, event coordinator, producer, and gifted healer trained in Swedish massage, reflexology, acupressure, cranial sacral, Reiki, ThetaHealing, creating fulfilling relations, the seven healing rays, manifestation, and Angel Healing. For the last 17 years, I’ve focused my teachings and talents on Spiritual Awareness and Healing Arts projects and events. During this time, I’ve also combined my knowledge and communication skills as a teacher, event coordinator, and agent for myself and other spiritual teachers, healers, and organizations by coordinating and facilitating tours and events in the United States, Canada, Brazil, England, Ireland, France, Monaco, Italy, Denmark, and Sweden. I’m also a talented and creative producer with over 15 years of television and video production and post-production experience as a producer, director, editor, and professor with both a BS ’89 and MA ’97 from Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts.
