Here is my holy discontent:  

We live in a time with unprecedented freedom and quality of life, yet there is an epidemic of women who hunger for wholeness, but are lost on how to integrate a healthy sexuality into the fullness of who they are.

Where do we go for help if...

  • The church has made us feel dirty and ashamed.

  • The medical industry has made us feel broken or insane.

  • Media messages have made us feel remarkably inadequate and deplorably plain.

How about a little mediterranean oasis in Palm Springs?

Korakia Pensione will make a perfect backdrop for the work we will be doing together on all the topics that fall under the enchanting umbrella of "Feminine Wholeness" and sexual well-being...

  • delighting in our senses
  • remembering what lights us up

  • daring to dream again and heal old wounds

  • redeeming our relationship with desire and pleasure

  • restoring trust in the wisdom and beauty of our body

  • feeling sexy from the inside out

The intimate size of our retreat (just me and 6 of you) will make the emotional work possible.

You will have my undivided attention to help you...

  • uncover the lies and scripts that keep us feeling fear, guilt, and shame in the bedroom, and in our own skin.

  • feel all the feelings so that you can complete the grief cycle and expand your capacity for intimacy.

  • hear your own hidden self talk and thought patterns and give you tools to live in a kinder relationship with self.

  • understand your body and it's sexual architecture (in a non-weird way) to give you new awareness of your sexual potential. 

  • connect with your own subtle energy through your breath as a way to cultivate and express creativity and power, instead of continuing to doubt it, shame it or repress it.

  • find your way home to the essence of who you are in every moment so that you can be powerfully present in all you do and share a transcendent and sacred sexuality with your partner.

 
 

The Sophia Experience is...

one part sex and intimacy coaching,

one part lifestyle design and self-care mentoring,

one part adventure in gorgeous Palm Springs,

and one part good old fashioned, epically awesome girl time.


Our time in Palm Springs together will be devoted to empowering you to attain the dreams you desire.

And have a lot of fun!

My role as your mentor will be to guide and direct you on your path to a deeper connection to yourself and God-breathed sexuality. 

I’ll also empower you with as much knowledge and information you need/want so that you can trust the way forward through any sexual difficulties you fear you may have.
 

 


 

How do you know this is right for you?

  • You are woman who wants to feel more of the beauty and grace, power and pleasure, creativity and sexuality of being a woman. 

  • You have entered a season of your life where you know the next frontier for your heart and your marriage is your own sexual wellbeing. 

  • You are tired of living a life controlled by shame and confusion, and you see the weariness it is causing in your family and your career. 

  • You're heart has already told you it's time to travel this path and you're willing to invest in yourself.

  • You love Palm Springs, or have always wanted to go!

 

The Sophia Retreat is for the woman...

  • Who feels distant from her spouse and even more distant from herself.

  • Who doesn't feel empowered in her sexuality, but refuses to believe she never will.

  • Who tends to resent the size of ordinary women's retreats and how they often make her feel more lost and alone.

  • Who struggles with an obsession with productivity and purpose and in that relentless commitment to the to-do list, has lost her relationship with pleasure.

  • Who knows she is  made for more than the role she has been playing

  • Who hungers for deeper dimensions of personal freedom, but does not know the way to get it.

  • Who  is done feeling shame about her body and sex and wants a safe place to explore new ways to see herself as a woman.

Hi, I'm Morgan, founder of the Sophia Sessions.

Here is what I believe:

Being a woman is a gift and our sexuality is a part of Love’s great creation. But few of us have been taught the truth about who we are, and so we struggle to find delight, confidence, or even own voice, in this gift.

A life of true romance and meaningful adventure is possible, but not without a woman's sense of wholeness. The Sophia Retreat is created to help a woman say yes to a new way of living from her heart where she can feel whole, joyful, and powerful in her own body and marriage. 

What if you could really love being a woman? All aspects of it? What could you accomplish and what joy could you feel if all that energy you spend in self-doubt could be given over to living in alignment with your highest values and deepest desires?
— The Sophia Experience

In Their Words

 

"I FOUGHT FEELING LIKE I DIDN'T DESERVE THE INVESTMENT IN MYSELF..."

When I read Morgan’s announcement for the Sophia Experience in Rome, my heart jumped. I was soaking up the R&A podcast and quickly realizing how many places in my heart (& body) I had neglected. I avoided anything sensual and allowed past hurts to become so deeply buried I had begun to accept them as simply a part of who I would always be. I knew something needed to change, but I wasn’t completely sure how to begin.

I fought feeling like I didn’t deserve the investment in myself. There was so much unknown waiting in Rome - walking into a retreat with women I had never met. However, what I found was nothing short of pure connection. Morgan is absolutely authentic and her passion is contagious. She is a gifted teacher, sincere in her words and and I would gladly make the investment all over again!

Imagine: heart, body, soul and senses awakened to the beauty and tastes of Italy. Fresh perspective, encouragement, joy, a renewed sense of self worth and beauty pulsing through your very being. Sipping prosecco with women you just met, who now feel like lifelong friends. Waking to fresh delights each morning, discovering new practices to care for yourself through yoga, breathing, meditation… 

Morgan’s sessions allowed me to experience practices that cultivated the delight and feminine wholeness I so deeply craved. Morgan created a beautiful, nurturing environment for each of us to feel supported, loved, and free. I could go on and on… Let me just say, thank you, Morgan. You are so deeply anointed in your teaching & I can’t wait for other women to experience these amazing truths with you!

"I REALLY FEEL LIKE I’M GETTING BACK TO MYSELF AND GAINING SOME CLARITY AND DIRECTION AGAIN..."

Morgan,

The workshop was AMAZING. Just being around you and your sweet spirit is so uplifting. I finally got a journal and journaled all my notes (13 pages!) from the workshop.

I learned who it is I really want to strive to be this year, someone who embodies gentleness and grace...After journaling and using your method for intentions, which is magical, I really feel like I’m getting back to myself and gaining some clarity and direction again, the opposite of how I’ve been feeling the last few weeks. It was definitely worth the time and investment! My body felt great! I was a little tired from traveling but the yoga we did was so freeing and feminine, which I love. For the past 6 months I’ve really tried to make my personal practice gentle and fluid (a way to seek the gentleness my body craves and incorporate a beauty to movement), and I love all the feminine aspects you added. I’ve never been a good dancer, always kinda awkward, (starting to wonder if this is related to my sexual trauma) so the feminine movements are so much fun and so good for me.  

I’ve learned so much from your teachings on femininity and womanhood, and love being part of a group that’s open and supportive, even though we don’t all have the same experiences or hold the same beliefs, which is rare. It’s not often you find a place like this. I really feels like a sisterhood, something I’ve never know before. I can’t wait to see what the future holds! 

Lots of love,

Emily


I decided to go for it...outrageous self-care, self-love & a massive commitment to truly be the person i am

When Morgan put the call out there for the Sophia experience, I decided to go for it. It felt crazy, I was a single mom who’d just set out on her own, it seemed extravagant, but it was also an opportunity to put everything I’d learned through the process of leaving my marriage into action. Outrageous self care, self love, and a massive commitment to truly be the person I am and to believe I’ve been created for love and wholeness and life to the full. It was also a chance to meet Morgan in person and actually get to know her! I found her incredibly warm and open. Her heart was so beautiful and genuine for each one of us and her vision to reach and see more women whole and free was contagious!

Morgan gave me so many new things to think about while confirming much of what I’d recently learned through the process of leaving my marriage. She provided gorgeous food to taste, modelled movement and daily rhythms to practice, gave us space to feel what we needed to feel, to see beauty in Rome, in each other, and in ourselves, and finally challenged us to stay fiercely committed to this uncertain (at times) path to sexy wholeness and wisdom. So much of me was stirred up that week. It was a celebration of how far I’d come, but also a massive challenge to carry on despite the inevitable lows and challenges that follow exciting seasons of change, growth, and new found freedom.

I’ve been a Christian forever, I love Jesus, but life hasn’t turned out to be as black and white as I once thought. It’s more colourful than I realized. Morgan’s teaching throughout the week confirmed the work the Holy Spirit has been doing inside me, and set me on a new path that will take me through this next season of my life.

The breath work and movement in the morning was powerful and beautiful. It’s a practice I aspire to keep up with and truly believe will bring me closer to God, and connect me to my true self, and inner wisdom.

One of the evenings, out at a local restaurant, drinking red wine and tasting the most exquisite simple Roman pasta, there was space for me to share my story with people I’d only just met. Their witness to my story was so timely and powerful and something I continue to draw strength from in times of doubt and uncertainty.

I’m counting down until my next retreat

Morgan speaks to my soul, and there is nothing comparable than being with her and other Sophia Sisters in person. Being at the Sophia Experience I felt so much PEACE. I felt JOY in it’s truest, purest form. I felt known, heard, understood, seen, loved. I felt like I want to experience this over and over. 2 weeks post-Rome I got pregnant-- haha! I truly feel like the work during and after the retreat was able to create a harmonious place for a baby to come live inside of me. I’ve been married for 10 years, and was married at 19. I can honestly say at 29 I truly own my sensuality now and don’t know if that could have happened without this immersion. I’m counting down until my next retreat with Morgan. ~ Ashley M.
