We all know our world will never be the same after this cocooning at home we are doing, separated from our loved ones, cut off from the way we are used to living and moving in the world.

So much uncertainty, unsure where life is leading us.

Sexual breakdowns, not feeling sexy, not connecting with our partners, not being able to even see them.

Loneliness, disconnection, relationships splitting at the seams, communication crumbling into frustration and resentments.

We are feeling scared, anxious, grief, scarcity.

Struggling to keep our self-care practices strong when we need them most.

We are overwhelmed with parenting and disrupted family routines.

We are having ruptures in our marriages and relationships as the issues that were under the surface or clipping along at a low hum before are now surfacing loudly, demanding to be addressed.

The question is: What world are we going to walk into and what world do we want to create when we move out of this cocoon?

We are actually in the womb, incubating right NOW. We are quieting our spirits, sleeping extra, reading, parsing and shedding, allowing ourselves some space, facing the issues that we must face so that we can grow.

Whatever was happening in our lives before COVID-19 is only magnified in this time. It’s not new. It is calling us home to ourselves to ask the hard questions, to face the things we have avoided and to make decisions that need to be made about how we want to live our lives.

When we Rebirth ourselves from this womb of creation, we will have the opportunity to do something new with our lives, to determine how and with whom we want to live and work, how we want to relate, and to align our priorities to our highest BEing.

Everyone needs support right now.

We need a circle of seekers who want to deepen and fortify ourselves to have our backs and help us out of the depths into the light of our future.

This is no small task. It is monumental.

If you are afraid, it may be because the unknown, the uncharted, and the unspun is gnawing at you. You want to KNOW what will happen. Humans like to know. And none of us know right now.

The only option is to surrender. And simplify.

The truth is that we have only this day and any illusion that we have more than that keeps us from the presence, power and pleasure of this very moment.

Women have always come together in every culture around the world for counsel, to speak wisdom, to share stories, to witness one another, to make decisions, and to fortify ourselves for whatever life is demanding of us.

We will come together in counsel as we approach the opening of our womb into our Rebirth for this necessary, deeply important fortification.

In our modern world, we honor that we are so much more than two genders. So we welcome our non-binary friends who were assigned female at birth and transgender women to join us.

Never was there a more important time for us to come together to share our wisdom and resources, to grow our power and strength, to get clear and present about what is important for us going forward and to love and play with each other.

Join us for Fire Woman Retreat

Fire Woman Retreat is a unique four-day event designed to give us space to witness, explore and revel in our sexual natures, and to help women and non-binary folks break through the things that hold us back from being who we really are as sexual people.

Fire Woman Retreat is unlike any other event: it is a combination of rich teachings, transformational healing, powerful rituals and group witnessing that allows for big personal & collective breakthroughs.

This is the 4th year we’re doing Fire Woman Retreat and now we’re going virtual.

Sunny Megatron

Host, Sex with Sunny Megatron; sexuality educator, Fire Woman Retreat teacher

“When I returned home from my first Fire Woman Retreat I told my college-age daughters that this program should be a prerequisite for adulthood. It’s about so much more than sex! Our sexual selves are influenced by so many other facets of our lives like our traumas, the way we were raised, the damaging messages society feeds us, etc. Amy Jo designed an inclusive holistic curriculum that integrates all of that.”

“The best way I can describe it is, the breakthroughs of an entire year of therapy, plus a celebration of the self, and just the right amount of sexy knowhow rolled into one incredible event. Words don’t do it justice.”

“The life-changing impact of Fire Woman is something that has to be experienced to be fully understood.”

What will we do at Fire Woman Retreat?

  • Create a collective sexual lifeline that examines your entire sexual herstory, allowing deep healing and support to come forth

Meet Your Teachers

Frequently Asked Questions

I am heterosexual / monogamous / polyamorous / lesbian / queer / genderqueer / a sex worker / a mom... Is this retreat for me?

This retreat is for woman-identified people and non-binary folks identified female at birth, regardless of sexual orientation, relationship style, parental status, or experience as a sex worker. A wide range of women attend Fire Woman, as well as non-binary folks. This is a place for exploration and part of our mission as a sex-positive space is that we make room for everyone and there is no pressure to be something you are not.

I'm a trans woman/non-binary/trans man. Is this retreat trans-inclusive?

If you are a trans woman or non-binary person who was identified female at birth you are welcome here. This is a trans-inclusive women’s space. If you identify as a man of any kind, both cis and trans, this is not the space for you. We thank you for respecting that.

What exactly do you DO at a sexual empowerment retreat?

It’s normal for people to be curious about what this kind of event looks like. It’s a combination of experiential teaching (which means you are doing and participating–not just listening and taking notes), group ritual, healing work, skills-based practice, dress up and play, dancing, live music, entertainment and introspection. As for the details, you’ll have to come in order to experience it! We ask that you trust the process. The curriculum is tried and true. If you resonate with what you have read on our website and you feel called to come, trust that. It’s the place for you. Amy Jo and all of the teachers have been doing this work for a long time and are very skilled. We can hold you where ever you are.

Is alcohol, cannabis, and other drug use appropriate?

No. This is a substance-free event for many reasons. One important reason for this is that many people are accustomed to using alcohol, marijuana or other substances to “loosen up” or let their inhibitions down sexually, and can rely on it. We want you to be able to fully experience this work sober and for all participants to have a lucid space. We ask that you respect this boundary should you decide to attend. If you cannot, this is not the right time for you.

I'm anxious/nervous. How do I know this is right for me?

You feel it. You feel the pull. You feel the resonance and the desire to be here. Anxiety and excitement feel the same in the body so it can be hard sometimes to know which it is. Often, it’s both. Some nervousness is absolutely natural! You won’t be alone. Please let us know if you need some extra support and we will do our very best to provide it.

I have another question that wasn't answered here, who do I contact?

You may send us an email at moreplease@amyjogoddard.com and we will endeavor to answer any questions you may have!
