About this trip

"Motherhood is not of biology but of unconditional inclusion." - Sadhguru 


Reconnect and reinvigorate your senses in a place of incredible natural beauty, with personalized wellness experiences, and award-winning hospitality at Civana Wellness Resort and Spa.

A Mother's Love Liberates Retreat is the perfect Mother's Day gift for yourself, the mom or mom like figure in your life, or a sweet getaway for you and the girls. It's a weekend to honor the MA energy we all have inside of us while also honoring the sacredness of Mother Earth.

Food is Love

At CIVANA guests have the delightful adventure of enjoying two warmly inviting and wondrously inventive restaurants led by our culinary team. Breakfast and lunch at CIVANA are meant to sustain guests through an active day. Enjoy hyper-seasonal offerings and high vibe food at Seed, CIVANA’s cafe and specialty market.


As the sun begins to set, enjoy a change of venue at Terras, the resort’s signature dinner destination offering a delightfully fresh and modern take on regionally inspired cuisine.

The Spa is Love

INSPIRED BY WATER

The Spa recaptures the time-honored art of healing through water in our hydrotherapy thermal circuit of hot and cold pools, cool waterfall shower and beautiful sanarium offering humidity and heat from within. There are both physical and energetic benefits to ‘taking the waters’, an ancient tradition of healing, cleansing and rejuvenation. Every experience begins with this grounding ritual for your personalized spa respite.


Saturday, May 7 we will have a spa day where you can select your choice of Massage or Facial (included in all packages) then rest, sip, nosh, and further relax by the spa pool with private cabanas for our group. 

Oh goodness, what am I going to wear?

Civana Wellness Resort and Spa is nestled in the Sonoran Desert, just outside Scottsdale, CIVANA is a new destination wellness resort that offers a regenerating experience to a wide audience of wellness travelers 14 years of age and older, as well as those simply looking for a serene and healthy get-away.

It is super chill, like real chill, so just think resort wear during the day while hanging at the pool and spa, yoga clothes for classes both inside and outside. Bring a sweater as it might get a little chilly at night, but its the desert in May, so make sure your clothes are light and bright...JUST.LIKE.YOU.


ADDITIONAL ITEMS: 

- Tennis Shoes (in-case you want to go on a long walk/hike or bike ride)

- Swimsuits 

- All-White for Sunday Brunch

- A small gift, from where you are from, for someone in the group that reminds you of Mother energy. This can be new and/or gently used. 


Quick list of FAQ's?

I want to start by thanking you from the fullness of my heart for joining me for the first A Mother’s Love Liberates weekend yoga, wellness, and soulfully led retreat. Together, we will enjoy a beautiful weekend filled with yoga, meditation, sound bath, spa day, writing and liberating ourselves by enhancing upon the Mother energy that resides in all of us. I am excited to celebrate on Sunday, May 8, 2022 with a beautiful Mother’s Day Brunch. 


Why a Mother’s Day Retreat:

I started hosting Honoring All Mothers, the workshop, five years ago when I felt ready to hold space after losing my mother to Pancreatic Cancer when I was 19yrs.old. I was led to create a container for people who were/are grieving the death of their mom, people who wanted to celebrate their moms but couldn’t be with them, forgive the relationship they never had with their mom, and/or people who wanted to honor mother earth from which we all came. The world as we know it shifted completely in 2020, and that was the first Virtual Honoring All Mothers which led me to hosting monthly gatherings for those who felt called. Fast-forward to 2022 and it's time to bring people together, safely, in-person and allow ourselves to be spoiled at the Spa.



Do I have to be a mother to attend?

No. You just have to be a woman, identify as a woman or non-binary to attend. 



Do I have to have a great relationship with my mother to attend?
No. This is about you cultivating a beautiful relationship with the mother energy inside of you, with mother earth, and with other beautiful women who will be joining us. This will be an honor for all moms no matter if we knew them, liked them, loved them…this is for you. 



If my mother is no longer here on earth, can I still attend? 

YES. I started all of this with you in mind. This will be an honor for our moms no matter if they are here with us or passed away, this is for you. I will be holding extra space for grief support this weekend, however as a daughter without a mother that is still alive, I understand this can be a sensitive time for us. Please know that tender, love, and care is paid especially to that and I trust that however you choose to honor your mama during this time is met with grace, love, forgiveness, and truth. 


Do I have to have a yoga or meditation practice to attend?
No. All our offerings will be perfect for the yogi’s no matter where they are on their journeys. 

Cancellation Policy

There are no refunds 


Our cancellation policy is strict and explicit. Due to the financial responsibility of the retreat hosts for booking and holding the retreat property, all payments are non-refundable once paid. It is recommended that the traveler has a travel insurance policy in the rare event that cancellation on the traveler’s end is unavoidable (Allianz and Travel Guard have good options).


Again, Travel Insurance is not required however it is strongly STRONGLY recommending given today's world and beyond.


Thank you for understanding our policy. 

Covid-19 Protocol

Your health and safety is the main priority. To that, I am asking everyone to provide proof of vaccination and/or show a negative Covid test in the last 48hrs before you check in. The health and safety of everyone who attends is my number one priority, as well as, Civana's so thank you for understanding. 


Please note: this is not something the resort is requiring, it's specific to our group so that we can all be comfortable being in community with each other. 


Again, thank you for understanding and I trust this will be a beautiful time had by all and as Civana states, "from embracing nature’s playground with increased outdoor wellness offerings, to *limiting spa capacity; providing enhanced dining experiences that ensure a safe and enjoyable dining experience, our commitment to helping you leave happier and healthier than when you arrived remains our focus."
