  Goddess Rising 

Maine Retreat 2019

Wild Women, do you hear the call to rise?


Are you craving a communal experience like no other filled with spirit, laughter, movement, and togetherness?


Are you a woman contained in the urban jungle needing an escape from the confines of the everyday to be free and full of pure joy out in nature?


Are you feeling called to rise from where you are rooted and deepen your awareness of self while taking the hand of your fellow sister and helping her to rise too?


If your heart screams yes.....

Answer the call here and join Cheryl Natusch and Alisha Negron on August 22, 2019 for our spirited journey to the beautiful wilds of Maine. 

August 22 23 24 & 25 2019

Cheryl & Alisha will be whisking you away to Denmark, Maine where we will stay at one of Maine's first green certified, earth friendly retreat centers, Nurture Through Nature.


NTN is situated on 33 acres of unspoiled and wild land in Western Maine.  NTN has been in operation since 1999 serving individuals and groups as an off the grid destination to promote connection, serve as a quiet space for reflection, and promote healing from within. 


You can read all about the history of NTN and the founder, Jen Deraspe, here.

Retreat Offerings


YES! You read that right! We will be driving up the first ten women who sign up for our retreat in a rented passenger van. We consider this the beginning of our journey together and a part of the retreat. Sit back and relax and let us do the drive for you so you can truly retreat and unwind. Pricing details will be provided below.


 The retreat center has a wonderful communal lodge where six participants can bunk together comfortably. There is also a cabin right next door to the lodge that can fit two-three people comfortably and it has solar powered electricity and wifi. The Robin's Nest Eco Cabin just a short distance up a hill from the lodge can also fit three to four people comfortably and is rustic with no solar powered electricity. The retreat center is very green and rustic so definitely prepare for a 'glamping' experience you will love. If you have a preference for where you like to stay upon sign up please let us know! We will take requests first come first served. If our group size increases to 15 participants we will also have access to the Moutain Brooke Yurt for you to choose from!


The lodge has everything we need for a comfortable retreat including a large communal dining table, kitchen space for our chef, and on the second floor is a gorgeous yoga studio with lots of light and views of the trees.



Your retreat package also comes with all meals provided! It just keeps getting better and better right? Three meals per day will be provided for you by our very own retreat chef Katie Sklarow.











Chef Katie Sklarow is classically French trained and seasonally driven. She runs award winning children’s cooking and baking programs and a small farm to table catering business. Her passion for food, sustainability and the environment are ever present in her creations. She’s excited to nourish her sisters and practice along side them during this yoga retreat.


Our intention for this retreat is to provide you a deep, restorative, connecting experience like no other. Connection back to yourself, to source and mother earth, and to your center. We want you to explore your inner wild and let the outer wild shine but also take time for reflection, community, and meditation. It is for this reason we do not intend to overwhelm you with so much curriculum indoors as we want to spend as much time out in nature as possible. Here are some of the amazing experiences we have in store:


  • ​Opening mediation/ceremony & alter building in our sacred  space with drumming     

  • Ashtanga & Vinyasa yoga 

  • Buti yoga 

  • Dance workshop ( outdoors weather permitting! ) 

  • Meditation at the outdoor medicine wheel with journaling/creative expression

  • Guided Canoe trip with picnic and swimming 

  • Wood fired sauna experience as a group

  • Chakra workshop

  • Hiking

  • Dipping in the crystal clear mountain water

  • Nightly guided meditation and slow practice to prepare for rest in the yoga studio
