Nurture In Nature: Retreat with Goddess Gaia

Nurture In Nature: Retreat with Goddess Gaia

April 28 – May 1, 2023

Ellijay, GA


Registration Link:

Nurture In Nature is a Goddess Gaia-inspired women’s retreat inviting you to come together to commune in community with Mother Earth and all that she offers us to connect to our true selves and live our magic out loud! When moving through life at such a fast pace, we miss the opportunity to slow down, pause, ask questions, and move from a place deep within that has all the answers.

Our intention for this magical women’s retreat is to join together in a place of peace, where we can remember our true nature, ground ourselves in the nurturing of Mother Earth, and access healing, restoration, and clarity.

This 4-day retreat will invite exploration through community circles, healing modalities, yoga, meditation, creative explorations, mindful hiking, nourishing foods, and more.

Why this retreat?

To find space for healing, remembering, reconnecting, and renewing ourselves so our soul can sing her song of our purpose. We do this with our community of women to remember we are not meant to do this alone. When we reflect back on how we originally lived, we lived in circle and were supported by the women that helped one another to care for the children, meals, births, healing, and more. This weekend we will intentionally return to this practice of supporting and loving one another.

Join us in the quaint, peaceful mountain town of Ellijay, GA, just south of Blue Ridge. Nestled in the Georgia mountains, we will connect to Mother Nature throughout our stay in the Owl’s Rest-Delightful Cabin, resting on a 3.2 acres property. The modern-rustic cabin will give us space to practice yoga, and meditation, space for creative explorations, sound healing, drumming, and more. The retreat will offer a balance of activities and rest. You will have space for shopping, resting, or even taking a soak in the hot tub to relax when we are on our built in breaks.

Ramona Crabtree-Falkner

E-RYT 500, Reiki Master, ALJ Mindful Living Coach

Ramona began her wellness career with massage therapy, but this was simply a gateway to a deeper understanding of how to help others. As a massage therapist for 20 years she found a desire to explore other modalities to hold space for her clients to find more ease and healing from within. Through her own struggles with health and stress induced chronic pain she turned to yoga, meditation, energy work and life coaching to connect to her own healing and found through each of these explorations more ease and peace in life.

Finding these practices to be of great benefit to her life with a strong vision to help others, Ramona developed the Authentic Life Journey programs and has now found a path that truly speaks to her truths of wanting to help others grow, heal and find ease and peace.

Ramona offers Group Life Coaching, Private Life Coaching, Group Yoga, Private Yoga, Reiki, Crystal Bowls Meditations, Workshops and Retreats. Your experience with Ramona will find you feeling peaceful and open to the journey that is life!


Conscious entrepreneur and host of The Beach Speaks podcast, Paige is a self-described Beach Goddess, conscious communicator, and passionate advocate of all things “divine feminine.”

As a consummate seeker of modalities that channel and express the divine in all of us, Paige cultivated her mindfulness practice through Authentic Life Journey coaching, received certification in the practice of crystal bowl sound healing, and studied Reiki and Chakra energy healing modalities.

The moment Paige stepped on the yoga mat, she felt a profound shift – body and soul – that left her feeling more energized in her body and empowered in her spirit. Wanting to know more about this “dance with the divine” that is yoga, it seemed natural that she follow the yoga teacher path and become a 200 HR certified mindful yoga instructor.

Paige brings a unique beach goddess vibration to her teaching that will ignite your body and empower your soul.
