What Women Are Saying

"Traveling with Cat was easily one of the highlights of my life! Her offering is like no other...it weaves together creative and self-care time at a sumptuous home base with day trips that fed my imagination and steeped me in the sweet nectar of the Goddess of the Land and Nature, a feast for all of my senses. The other women who surrounded me served as comfort, support, and inspiration. It was a magical blend of history, "her-story", and my story...a way to claim where I am on my journey of life and tools and support for the next stages as well as memories and connections that will last a lifetime. The Goddess Retreat was a daily serving of wonder and wander, feasting and hot tubbing, and dancing with butterfly wings watching the moon rise and dawn arriving. In a word, it was priceless!"


"My Goddess Retreat with Cat Caracelo wildly surpassed my expectations. Travelling to historic and natural locations of breathtaking beauty and mythic power, engaging potent creative process and ritual energized and activated by Cat's remarkable ability to hold transformative space, I experienced the most profound and expansive spiritual awakening of my life. Coming home to my Sacred Self during this journey has had exponentially positive reverberations in all areas of my life in the 8 months since. I am deeply grateful to Cat for her brilliant guidance and highly recommend her Goddess Retreats to those who are seeking soulful, fun adventure and/or radical healing and life change."


"I have been on three of these glorious retreats and each and every one was utterly unique, rich with content and process, in a word life-changing. I felt held and tended by Cat on each of these journeys. Once I arrived I had nothing to worry about. No arrangements, planning, itineraries or art supplies. This support left me free to enjoy my own deep and soulful creative experience as well as commune with the sacred elements of the landscape, explore ancient and hidden mystery and take in the local art and culture. On each trip I was soothed, held and ultimately transformed."


"I enjoyed journeying with the woman who circled in to this retreat, kindred spirits all! I have come home with so many creative ideas, deep embodied inspiration, wonderful activating memories and new friends. Cat is a guidess who brings an amazing blend of expertise to these retreats. She has a warm and welcoming approach offering so much richness with lots of creative, self-care and choice on this retreat. It was a powerful experience!"


"Cat's Retreats always bring me to a deeper understanding of where I connect, belong and expand. Always held in wonderful places and spaces, she offers guidance and process useful to illuminate the mythic levels of my personal stories and then grounds that work in ways that influence and inform my everyday life. I come home to myself with strong insights and powerful memories that impact and linger."


"Working with Cat has brought greater awareness and consciousness to how I am living my life—I feel seen, acknowledged and deeply inspired by her."


"Cat stands like Hecate at the crossroads pointing out the different road signs and allowing us the freedom to wander and choose what resonates and matters the most."
