Hi, I'm Morgan!
I'm the creator of the Sophia Retreats. Let me tell you how it all began...
In June of 2015 I had a vision:
We were in Rome.
Just me and a tiny group of women who felt like kindred spirits.
We were drinking prosecco together, talking about sex and God.
I got to be their big sister answering all their questions they were afraid to ask anyone else.
We had so much fun!
We went on a lingerie tour and got glamorously dressed up just for one another, not for the eyes of any man.
We meditated and danced our prayers, and we moved through yoga poses sensually and creatively, like confident felines instead of struggling soldiers.
We ate and drank together and told our stories through laughter and tears.
The vision I had was born from my love of travel, deep discussions, a 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 or ashamed
The medical industry has made us feel broken or insane
Media messages have made us feel so inadequate and deplorably plain
I had a wild idea that we should go to Rome....
So we did!
The first Sophia Experience happened that December in Rome, just like I envisioned it (except in real life Antonio Banderas showed up, proving we can always dream bigger)!
That following summer we went to Puglia.
Then to Palm Springs.
And then to Scottsdale.
And now to Mexico! And soon Australia!
I wanted to give women their very own field experience of living wholeheartedly connected to beauty, pleasure, brazen sexiness, femininity, and grace.
Sophia showed me the way to do that in my own life, and I knew she could show the way for other women, too.
That's how the Sophia Retreat was born!
And I hope to welcome you with a great big hug somewhere beautiful in the world soon.
About Morgan Day Cecil
Morgan Day Cecil is the creator of the Sophia Retreats.
She is a modern day Christian mystic and tantrika (one who practices tantra).
She has a master's degree in Eastern Philosophy, 500-hours of yoga instructor training and 600 hours of love, sex and relationship coaching. She combines her extensive education with her personal story of waking up to the divine feminine after more than 3 decades of living with shame around her experiences as a woman.
Her family and personal history are marked by depression, anxiety, disordered eating, drug and alcohol abuse, and rape.
On her own path of healing and wholeness she met Sophia, divine feminine wisdom, and discovered that the healing journey is meant to be a love story, not a battle.
Morgan delights in the full range of being human, embracing her contradictions... saying yes to being goofy and glamorous, introverted bookworm and dance-on-table party girl, bond girl and nun.
Her work is to spreads the gospel of feminine wholeness and show women the way home to the sacred well within that never runs dry.
She teaches on Sexy Wholeness, Sophia (the feminine goddess of the bible), tantra from a Christian perspective, how to heal the wounds within our sexuality and spirituality, and sacred marriage.
Her workshops and retreats incorporate meditation, sensual yoga, embodiment practices for feminine wholeness, and a whole lot of whimsy and play.
She lives and teaches these 4 personal truths:
1). You are made for true romance and meaningful adventure.
2). Your heart is good (and so is your body).
3). Life can begin again.
4). Come what may, love more not less.
