Powerful natural medicines are used as complementary and alternative cancer treatments.

Venue & Amenities
Naturally, the most important part of our retreat center is the exotic flowers and the animals that inhabit the huge jungle trees throughout the property. In our beautifully designed gardens, you can be a part of it, either by watching, listening, or just relaxing in a hammock or taking a dip in our magnificently designed pool. Our center is located 200 yards from the beach. We also have three yoga shalas available for yoga and meditation, a healing spa, and a restaurant on site.
We serve healthy and nutritious food every day prepared from scratch with organic ingredients. Our food is mainly vegetarian, and upon request, we serve fish, chicken, and seafood as well. We offer an Ayurvedic kitchen and delicious Caribbean-style food as well. For the preparation of our meals, we use organic vegetables and fruits locally grown.

Reviews from Past Participants of Plant Medicine Ceremony Retreats at The Goddess Garden:
“It has been incredibly safe. That is my number one best feeling experience. That I could come to a place that is so heart opening and connecting and that really helped me get to the edge of my consciousness and the edge of my growth in very safe, and caring, and loving hands.”
