The golden goddess getaway retreat was amazing! Shonna and Milan spread so much love, positivity, and good energy to all of the women on this retreat. They both shared many skills and tools to encourage women to nourish their mind, body, and soul. The food was DELICIOUS and healthy on this trip. The views, islands and sunsets were beautiful. Good vibes all around. This retreat was a safe place to be your full, authentic self and experience lots of self-love. Thank you for this magical experience!! ✨

I have been blessed with the experiences of attending both of the Golden Goddess Getaway trips Milan and Shonna planned in 2019, and they have truly been a significant part of the transformation I have experienced in the last year. My time with the beautiful women that were part of these trips was special and uplifting, and absolutely surpassed what I had hoped for these trips. The inclusive set up for everything makes it so easy to relax and enjoy being on vacation, and their location choices show the thought and care they put into planning these trips. Well done ladies, looking forward to more adventures with you!

I went vegan for 5 days and now am hooked thanks to these delicious lovelies and courtesy of the Go Natural Chef! The resort was amazing, a beautiful sanctuary to recharge,renew and zen into my feminine power! The private beaches, spiritual enlightening workshops, and can't forget the fun Beyonce dance class. And the yoga classes OMG! Only these two can make yoga sexy, sultry, sensual and divinely empowering! Absolutely everything about this getaway was on point! I am still flying high and have been back for a week-that is when you know you had a fabulous trip! Thank you to all the lovely ladies that experienced this with me you all were so wonderful and fresh to be around -I am so happy and grateful I got to meet a group of women who were fun, divine, intelligent, and inspiring.

Fall into Fierceness was such a gift of light & love. Being immersed in mindfulness & wellness was so soothing for the soul - Milan & Shonna are truly gifted spirits who were so open & helpful to all of us & met us where we were on our journeys & helped us grow into our power. The ladies on this trip were all so open & welcoming & gentle with each other & fiercely supportive. The vibe was infectious, the agenda was packed with experiences I’ll carry with me every day for life. A must-do for anyone looking to dive deep into themselves & their peace.
