Goddess Retreat: A Healing Gathering

Goddess Retreat is a healing gathering hosted by Ragan Thomson.

A half-day retreat where we gather in circle to clear and heal mind, body and Spirit while surrounded by nature in our beautiful Sanctuary.

According to a Hopi Prophecy, “When the women gather the world will heal.” This embodies the concept of the necessity for the divine feminine in all areas of the world to rise up.

As we come together in a sacred space of compassion and acceptance, we heal the past and become present with our true divine light, which is both masculine and feminine in balance. We get to be centered, whole and available to all that the world brings exuding who we truly are in every moment.


Goddess Retreat offers an opportunity for women to come together in a safe and calming environment where we all work together by practicing prayer, meditation, clearing work, and deep-centering practices to bring greater joy, freedom, love, and peace within.


The last few years have encompassed fear, anxiety, trauma, and for many, isolation and depression. We are committed to assisting our sisters with their healing journey, that’s why we are taking a step forward and offering, once more, a Goddess Retreat experience that has helped women for many years now. 


Ragan Thomson retreats are magical experiences intended to help you heal and live from who you truly are as a soul. If you wish to join us, please keep reading below for more information and testimonials.

Goddess Spotlight

In this edition of the Goddess Retreat, our guess of honor will be Martha Alter Hines.

Martha Alter Hines, MSW, is a mom, an author, a healer, and an astrologer. Martha has twenty years of experience as a clinical social worker, psychotherapist, and body worker. She has primarily studied Evolutionary Astrology with Ari Moshe Wolfe and is currently a student of Heather Ensworth as well.

Martha bridges her trauma informed clinical background with her astrological knowledge, as well as a deep understanding of ourselves as beings of the cosmos, Earth, divine, heart, mind, and so much more.

Ragan is currently enrolled in her twelve-part workshop series “Conversations with the Goddesses” where participants learn about the archetypes, mythology, and astrology of twelve different goddess planetary bodies and explore these goddesses as they are reflected in the cosmos, in your birth chart, and in your own body, heart, and soul.

Martha was born in Thailand and grew up in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Kenya, and the United States. Therefore, she has a deep passion for alleviating the suffering of our world.

Martha is dedicated to serving our world, to helping us each to thrive, and to supporting us to come back into the infinite wisdom and healing that is our natural state of being.
