Mary Mikhael - Goddess Embodiment Training Working with Mary was an experience unmatched by no other. As a Psychic & facilitator for those on the path of awakening, being met by others in my own experience of expansion, has been a rare opportunity for me. Mary Magdalene came to me in my work in my young years, however deciphering her codes was indeed a Mystery. Finding answers to the questions I had, no amount of research could satisfy the calling I had. The calling of the Scarlett Rose came to me through a mutual acquaintance of Mary & I. Upon learning of Mary Mikhael’s Goddess Embodiment Retreat, I knew without doubt this was my calling. My Rights of Passage. An Initiation I was guiding myself through, yet could not fathom in depth. At this stage in my journey, I yearned for a midwife of my own passage. An Initiator. Most importantly, someone I could trust during such a delicate process. Although I had not been formally acquainted with Mary, nor needed to be to validate the power of her work; the transmission was already carrying within the field. I met Mary officially in Bali on her Retreat. Instantly I was captivated & impressed with the container she held. Clean, respectable, strong, nurturing. It was clear Mary was indeed an expert in her field. I chose to work with Mary for she embodies a current - a lineage of teachings - in which can only truly be transmitted with aligned intentions, a deep knowing of the work & an anchoring that only a true Master of one’s craft can hold. The integrity of the work, along with the raw, real & yet eloquent expression of the Codes was conveyed in high regard. 16 months on, the waves of her work resounding in my field still today, continue to unlock codes & enable a greater depth of awakening for me. Mary will always come highly recommended by myself as a true expert in her work of Sacred Union & Priestess Alchemy. She is one of the very rare few I have & will ever turn to for support within my own psychic field. She is a Goddess Embodied. A Witch. A Mystic. A Psychic. A Priestess. A Powerhouse. A woman on mission who knows what she is doing. I celebrate Mary for the point in humanity she holds, for her mission bears a great weight that only a true warrior can yield. And with that, she wears this weight like a crown upon her head. With ease, grace & humbling rawness of what’s required to step forward in this time of calling, in this time of Awakening. Honour to you, Mary I humbly bow to you sister, for I see a Queen before me. With love, Courtney J Dwyer Psychic Soul Expert

Wow, what an amazing retreat. I went to the Bali Retreat to reconnect with my Higher Self. At the retreat I found that connection and also realised that I have always been connected, just not realising what I was looking for has always been there, I just needed to remember and accept myself for who I am and to look inside for the connection. I also had an amazing experience of my true self being disconnected from ego. The feelings I feel being disconnected from ego are unexplainable as they arefeelings I have never experienced before. The closest way to explain these feelings would be pure bliss, unconditional love, inner peace, freedom and total connection all rolled into one feeling. It was like viewing the world through a new set of eyes all in high definition. Thank you Mary Mikhael, Jonathan Movitz and each and everyone of you that was on the retreat for your love support and great memories. LoveandLighttoyouall ThankYou

This is my testimonial for the Bali Retreat 2015. And wow what an experience! I met some of the most amazing people I've ever met in my whole life that I got along with straight away. Felt so much love from the group and Bali itself. I saw beautiful hearts who came for a spiritual, emotional, and physical healing, with many carrying a lot of challenges they've experienced in this lifetime. As the days continued, I witnessed a massive transformational healing, where together, the group embraced these challenges and learnt to accept and love who they truly are. So humbled and grateful to have been part of this experience. On a personal note, I'm thankful to Mary, Jonathan, and the whole group who helped me overcome my own challenges and transform them into self-acceptance and love within myself. I now appreciate all my challenges as gifts and feel that I can share my love and light with freedom to the rest of the world smile emoticon Will be planning to do it all again next year to share in the growth and evolution of our souls. Thank you so much!

Are you ready for this..... Our testimonial by Jessica Rose & Daniel Bausch - Bali retreat 19th Oct - 26th October 2016 Twin flame Enterprises Mary Mikhael & Jonathan Movitz. After almost 8 years of being together my husband Daniel and I are finally finding our balance as a union, the yin & yang, sacred masculine & feminine are reuniting after some serious trials and tribulations, we are finding ourselves through connecting to our own hearts, which has lead us back to each other. After many lifetimes of releasing/healing our own Karmas, understanding self by taking absolute responsibility for our creations through beliefs that we have taken on and created ourselves, we are finally starting to enjoy the absolute fruits of our labour & we have Mary & Jonathan to absolutely thank for this. I met Mary roughly 18months ago, desperately searching for answers I had been working on myself through self awareness for some time, however Mary had something different from the rest, she held an essence of freedom that I had not witnessed yet & I wanted in! Mary could really see me, her instant love & respect for me, playfulness, patience & absolute truth was exactly what I had been searching for! Mary & I have been on an absolute journey together, it has been profound & an absolute game changer for me, and in turn my relationship with my beautiful husband Daniel. Mary has been a mirror of truth to me, demonstrating the barriers that I had created for myself and assisting me to face them with unconditional love, non judgement, non expection & truth. Through the journey back to myself, Daniel decided on his own shift. I chose to allow Daniel the space & freedom through trust to find himself by whatever means he felt best as he absolutely did this for me! Daniels teachings with Jonathan have been an equal game changer & as a result we have returned to each other after a seperation of heart stronger than ever & now having our 1st child together (due in March 2016). The retreat in Bali was profound for us (and the baby), location at Ananda resort & spa was a tranquil & perfect location to hold all 17 of the most incredible souls we have ever had the privilege of spending 7 nights with! For me being 20 weeks pregnant, it was energizing & uplifting to be around such loving souls who we're all so dedicated to working on their soul development & we have truly made some lifetime friends from the experience & extend great gratitude to u all for all the joy, tears, chats & support! For me personally, I was able to find my inner child again which brought me such relief, joy, energy & gratitude! ! I finally remembered who I started out as in this world & how much I had changed, not to mention the relief I felt that my original being was also perfect in all that is, it gave me so much energy that I can't remember feeling since I was a child! Daniel found a real sense of connection to all that is through his heart & a much broader understanding of self & his soul purpose! Not to mention a natural on the didgeridoo (gift from Johnathan & Mary & guidance fromJason Ralph). As a result we are integrating being connected to our heart/devine in every moment! ! Mary & Jonathan, your incredible gifts that you have bestowed upon us is a level of gratitude quite hard to express in words & I hope that our testimonial is a true reflection of your unconditional service to the evolution of mankind, for freedom is ultimately what we all seek through unconditional love the pathway that leads us back to ourselves, and with souls like u guys leading the way, guiding us, there is absolute hope for us all! We absolutely loved the retreat, look forward to all of our futures together and a brighter outlook for us all. Namaste teachers, friends and family.

I pulled off the road and snapped this photo on my way to the retreat on Saturday morning. Mary & Jay's place is where the rainbow ends on then right. I couldn't believe it - gave me goosebumps! - such a beautiful sign I was meant to be there will all you wonderful souls. On Monday morning before breakfast I wrote this poem that captured my experience of the retreat, and sharing with all you beautiful souls The wheel turns And time stands still A tear falls From the deepest depth Through eternity it falls Through all dimensions of light Never knowing Forever searching The angels hear its call Gathering to witness its fall Light upon light In Divine joy More and more the angels sing A song of love from the Cosmic Heart The tear awakens It’s crystal light ignites Feeling its utter bliss It finally lands In the ocean of love Merging with all the others No longer separate It feels at peace In the heart of the Cosmic Womb The water of life

The Merge! Aaaaasmaazzzing! Not only is The Merge transformative for me but for my family and all those I encounter.. Soul family I came home last night and spent two hours talking to my mum about the weekend, the releases, forgiveness, freedom, transformation and remembrance... She said I was beaming about my experience and she asked how she can learn to be more connected to god.. that for me was just beautiful. Tonight I sat with my children. They took out their journals and wrote their own notes as I talked about just a small fraction of all that I learnt over the last three days, today we touched on forgiveness, giving your power away and freedom and connection to divine. We did our own circle of forgiveness and the tears flowed and a loving hug fest followed. I went back to work today, with a quieter mind and not flustered. I started talking about the weekend to my work desk neighbor and she because interested and has now started looking into the next retreats Mary and Jay thank you for gifting me the beginning of my journey and soul family thank you for holding space and being witness. Bursting with love for you all

Sharing some self-insight with my soul-tribe: I began the Merge as a simple, 100 piece puzzle: large simple pieces; a pleasant colorful picture; easy to put together. Some pieces were still in the box because I hadn't figured out where they belonged yet, but nothing was missing. It was all there. Over the weekend I took the puzzle apart - sometimes carefully, sometimes violently - because I realised that the pieces didnt fit together anymore: they were multiplying; becoming more complicated and intricate. And though the picture was the same, it had more color and movement and detail and vibrancy. I brought home 500 puzzle pieces, all floating around in my suitcase. Some of them I've since put together, but most of them are back in the box, waiting as I start making the puzzle again. I've realised that each time I delve deep into myself I will start the process of taking the puzzle apart so the pieces can evolve and be put back together. It doesn't matter how long the puzzle takes or how many times I take it apart, because it will never be finished - it will always be growing and changing and becoming more than what it was. I'm pretty excited because if theres one thing I love as much as Lego its putting together a good puzzle!

Out of the shadows, here I emerge 🙂 Confused more than ever, shaken, integrating like a Mofo, scared..I have been trying to make sense of what happened on the Merge last week and I have no freaking clue.. I know this though.. I am eternally grateful for being a part of such an incredible soul family the work we have chosen to come to do is anything else but easy..it requires persistence, will, massive loads of COURAGE and I would say craziness! Big loads of massive silliness on our side to be here, right now! I have been feeling all sorts of things last week..absolute bliss, tears of release, profound and deep fear of not knowing, tears of realisation, my chest has been sore from all heart opening. I have found my lost wings as well felt so magical..bizzare. feeling like a crazy person again And yet seems so real.. Just haven't used them for long time so it feels quite confusing now..not knowing what to do with them.. I think that I am actually trying to fly with my feet still on Earth..trying to be part of both..hmm.. I just realised that is not what will probably work you can't both stay and go, right? My souls is screaming for things to happen now and I have the sense that if I don't act the Universe will swiftly help me that makes me a bit nervous 😛 What a journey! I don't know what it would look like if it wasn't for you, fellow crazy souls Deeply grateful for the way you show up here! Those who I have met and even those I haven't yet. Because we are all here for a reason and TOGETHER is how we create the MAGIC THANK YOU FOR YOUR AWESOMENESS! For me, having you all here for allthe love and giggles is the best gift ever

So I just spent 4 days deep deep deep at 'The Divine Goddess I Retreat' run by Mary Mikhael after the Universe literally kicked my butt in there. Last minute and it all just aligned as it does when it's meant to be, right? I've been asked by a few of you what was the most amazing part? - and I literally can't pick one. My mind, soul and heart are still blown out in love and gratitude and I'm definitely integrating still. I fought with my mind so much over these couple of days but every time I did, Mary, this incredible woman, with her beautiful heart and soul, would just know and be there. At one point I was down crying out of fear and pain I do not know where that came from but it's irrelevant and part of the journey; only to a few minutes later be hysterically laughing in the most freeing of laughter. She held me and the other beautiful Goddesses in such power but yet so gentle, allowing us to really know and feel the answers or perhaps questions inside of us. I love when I get to think for myself and not just be fed if you know what I mean. Cracked right open, so many shifts, releases, aha moments and through it all such delicious, unconditional love. For my sisters, for my brothers, for the world. Raw, wild, surprising AF (not gonna spoil the surprise for someone else wanting to do it, and trust me you won't regret it), beautiful connections and one heck of a journey. I am not the same woman now as when I walked in that's for sure , excited to see where it will land before taking flight again. I learnt so much, laughed so much and loved so much . Thank you Mary from the bottom of my heart. So so grateful for you and the space you held for me

The Divine Goddess I Retreat For as long as I can remember I have been conditioned by fear and unworthiness. I have drowned in the lowest of lows only to sink further into self loathing and harm. I was lost in a world where I struggled to belong. I yearned for purpose only to find defeat. Last year I received a gift and that divine gift was Mary Mikhael. My heart trusted and followed her Light which in the past 4 days led me into a personal journey of self discovery and conscious awakening. The tears flowed as I surrendered and released lifetimes of persecution and pain. To the beautiful women who allowed me to nurture and be nurtured, I am grateful for your unconditional love. And to the Goddess and Warrior who believed in me from the first moment our eyes met, I am privileged to receive your loving guidance and I am honored to be in your divine presence Mary. Because of you I can see again, I can feel again, I can breathe again

The Goddess Rise Retreat was such an incredible time of raw emotion, healing and reconnection with so many releases and shifts with other truly beautiful women. In our few days together, I have discovered an even more deeper love for others and within myself! Mary Mikhael, you are one magical woman!! The space you held for each and every one of us was so incredible and I feel so much gratitude and love for you, and I feel privileged to receive so much guidance and wisdom from someone as gifted as you. The journey you took us on words simply can not describe! The tears, the laughter, new learning’s, letting go and all of the releasing moments. I absolutely loved every minute of it! You are the most raw, honest, and powerfully gifted person and I want to thank you for being my friend, my Divine Sister, and for being the beautiful Goddess that you are ❤❤❤ Love you xxx And... can't wait for the Goddess Retreat II .. it will be epic!!

Mary Angelique Mikhael you are a true Divine Goddess embodied in all her infinite glory; you hold lover, mother, priestess and warrior!!You my dear hold such sacred space with depth, equality, authenticity, purity, love, heart, soul, embodiment, power, vulnerability and compassion; journeying along side each of us with such care and honor. You are simply magic, and the gifts you carry words can simply not describe. Thank you for holding me and opening the Gateway of incredible Awakening I have had this weekend! I have never really understood 'the Sisterhood' but today I feel I have been initiated into the Sisterhood, into the Goddess, into the Moon and all the Divine Feminine ways of Being. I feel like I can admire the beauty of a women, beauty of a sister in equality and pure love. Sisters ... today I see you.. what an incredible gift. Thank you to all the beautiful women who journey this weekend, such sacredness, intimacy, trusting and vulnerable space was created. And although I didn't get to connect with you all... I feel such deep love and connection with each of you; with the Sisterhood. Thank you. Today I also realised that my journey has always been to awaken the Lover within me, before sharing love with another in a relationship. My own lover has now awakened and I am soo friggin in love deeply and authentically with me!!! Wow!!!Such a magical gift! I have also healed, let go off fear, embarrassment, guilt, shame and reconnected with my own intimacy, sensuality and sexuality calling back and reclaiming my power back and my voice! With my divine feminine and the gift it is to be women/goddess. Soo incredible and I feel such gratitude, love and devotion for my journey back into love, lover and beloved. Thank you Mary for the gift of you And like Wow! The incredible healing and change that has occurred for Collective over the last couple of days.
