New Dates to be Announced

Todos Santos,  Baja, Mex




Women’s Medicine + 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!

Our Retreat Container always opens with a potent Fire Ceremony facilitated by Medicine men from Mexico to release, alchemize & clear the way! We will start our mornings  with Hatha Yoga & Meditation practice, overlooking the Pacific Ocean follow by a healthy organic breakfast.   In the afternoons, we will enjoy the beach or simply relax in the beautiful lush garden with a fresh, green detox juices made with love! There will be time slots if you choose to book a 50 minutes  Massage or Energy Medicine Session. Notice: this is NOT included in the price.  In the Evenings we will engage in beautiful, grounding Ceremonies & / or sharing healing circles guided by drum sound to realign Soul, Mind & Body with the healing powers of Nature & Sacred Women’s Ritual.

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 & access our subconscious mind in order 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 upon our Mother. You will also receive Womb Healing Rites as passed down to Marilu Shinn by the Indigenous Medicine Women (Curanderas) of the Sacred Land of Peru.

 “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

Genevieve Slonim Certified Doula, Narrative Therapist, Women’s Circles Practitioner and Mother of 3.  Genevieve has close to 20 years experience working with women in therapeutic settings, in childbirth and post partum workshops and as a social justice advocate. Guided by the belief that modern society has left many people, especially women,  feeling isolated and alone as we navigate milestones throughout our lifecycles such as becoming fertile, becoming mothers, becoming elders and more, she believes Creating Community rooted in women’s wisdom and a reclamation of ancestral traditions is the way to restore balance, health and the sacred to our lives. When we come together in community and restore the lost traditions of storytelling, ceremony, songs and traditional practices that were passed down from generation to generation we feel a renewed and invigorating sense of belonging and meaning in our personal lives as well as healing the collective for the generations to come.  www.birthofamama.com
