Women’s Five Elements Medicine
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 and Healing for women in Baja, Mexico!

Our Retreat Container always opens with a potent Fire Ceremony to release, alchemize & clear the way! For deep Alchemy, each day moves with a different Element, so we may re-sync with the power of all Five Elements.

We will start our mornings  with beautifully crafted Tea Ceremonies facilitated by Jade Brunel followed by  Hatha Yoga & Meditation practice guided by Ivonne Davey, then enjoy a healthy organic & locally sourced breakfast.

In the afternoons, we will enjoy the beach or simply relax in the beautiful desert landscape with a fresh, green detox juice made with love! There will be time slots if you choose to book a 45 minutes  Massage or Energy Medicine Session. Notice: this is NOT included in the price.  Slots are limited, so plan ahead.

In the Evenings, we will engage in beautiful, grounding Ceremonies (informed again by the Five Elementals) and/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 into the past, using repetitive drum sound in order to elicit a relaxed state of mind and 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” and shed the old stories, the old skin.

Within the expansiveness of the Desert, we will have the time and the space to be quiet and connect with our inner knowing, so that we can make the changes needed during this potent time of transformation upon our planet. You will also receive Womb Healing Ceremonies to allow you to clear any imprints held here in your sacred temple. 

“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 through 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. I feel the retreat was far more beneficial than any kind of therapy that I had before.”

~ C. Gerring

Amazing experience! I’m so lucky to have found this retreat. I met some of the most wonderful, inspiring & supportive women, and enjoyed a magical week of Yoga, nature, farm fresh food, sharing circles & Earth Medicine Ceremonies.

“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.
