Linda Dieffenbach, the founder of the Autumn Goddess Retreat, began this festival in 2009 with a vision of creating a magical day for people to come together, celebrate and enjoy their sacred divinity ~ the "inner goddess" ~ that lies within each of us.

  Linda is a holistic practitioner and coach, and the owner of Wellness in Harmony, located in Phoenixville PA.  Branching from her foundation in Social Work, Linda began exploring different methods of healing and personal growth through the world of energy and holistic healing.  Her studies began with Reiki and have broadened into training in Chakra Clearing, Life and Relationship Coaching, and Acupressure.  In addition to her healing practice, she offers classes and workshops on a variety of wellness and personal development topics.

The Autumn Goddess Story

The vision of the Autumn Goddess Retreat began in 2009 when Linda attended a private Mother's Day event (called the Goddess Happy Hour).  The hostess of this lovely event brought her friends together in her home for an evening of pampering and fun.  The women enjoyed massage, readings, shopping, snacks and lots of other delightful treats. Linda loved the idea and wanted to create a similar experience that would be open to a larger audience - a day of pampering and play.

In our first year, we had a small gathering in a local dance studio with a handful of healers and readers.  Each of the years that followed, the Autumn Goddess Retreat has evolved and expanded, now bringing you a full day of live music, interactive dance performances, workshops, and lots of opportunities to pamper yourself, shop and explore the rich offerings that our local holistic community has to offer.

Giving back to our community has always been a key element in the Autumn Goddess Retreat.  From its inception, the festival has incorporated fundraising for charity.  Over the years, we have raised money for a child fighting Neuroblastoma, and supported The Wolf Sanctuary of PA, the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County and Bringing Hope Hom, and Unite for Her.  In 2018, we are again supporting the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County.
