Women of the Desert : Earth Based Healing + Yoga

February 13th-18,  2018 Baja, Mex

Women of the Desert: Earth Based Healing + Yoga
A FIVE Day Desert Immersion to Reset, Revitalize & Realign in Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico



Are you feeling the call…

  • To shed that which is no longer serving you in order to experience more joy and connection to the world?
  • To gift yourself some precious time for healing & sisterhood?
  • Are you yearning for a deeper connection to moon cycles and to your own inner wisdom as a woman?
  • Are you being called to step into your power?

If this resonates with you – consider joining us in this journey of Empowerment & Healing for women in Baja, Mexico!

We will start our mornings with grounding, centering Curated Tea Ceremony offered by Jade overlooking the Pacific Ocean follow by Hatha Yoga & Meditation; we will enjoy healthy organic meals. Engage in beautiful, grounding Ceremonies that realign our Souls, Minds & Bodies with the healing powers of Nature. In the afternoons, we will enjoy the beach and fresh, green detox juices made with love! There will be time slots if you choose to book a 70 minutes  Massage or Energy Medicine Session. Notice: this is NOT included in the price.

One of the highlights of our retreat will be to participate in a Traditional Sweat Lodge to cleanse, sweat toxins away & renew our skin using balancing & healing herbs such as: aloe vera, chamomile, sage, rosemary & mint. Soul Retrieval will also be offered. Soul Retrieval is a Shamanic Practice where we journey to the time passed using repetitive drum sound in order to elicit a relaxed state of mind to let go of an experience or story that’s no longer serving us or that is preventing us from being our authentic selves. We will “go within” & shed the old stories, the old skin…

With the expansiveness of the Desert, we will have the time & the space to be quiet & connect with our inner knowing so that we can make the changes needed during this potent time of transformation in our planet.  In the evenings we will offer grounding  Drum Sound  Circles & Womb Healing Rites!

 “The week was magical.

Opening the door of my oneself, remembering to be kind (regardless of all the shit that makes me frustrated about the world), recognized my true power (that we all have)…so much still to learn, see, love, enjoy…my heart is open (again).

Grateful I left my cocoon to meet new people, learn new skills, I had to go throw a big pain, getting out of there with the help of amazing friends (you know who you are).” 

-V. Vanessinha

   “Before coming to the retreat I was in and out of therapy and I never really felt like it helped me.

I kept going back to my old behaviors, that were just not serving the person that I should be and I can be, and since the retreat, I feel it was far more beneficial than any kind of therapy that I had.”  

-C Gerring

 “RETREAT, it is a gift – and in this allowing to receive, we offer our gifts more fully and more fearlessly to the world. I am so grateful for my experience, I feel renewed.

Being ‘re-framed’ by participation in the rare air of exquisite nature, great company, bodily opening, communion with the Earth, and ritual.

What an honor and joy it is to share in this celebration that ignites the power of healing transformation.”

-V. Dunwoody
