About this trip

If you are a woman, over 18 years of age, who is yearning to live more fully, who knows that there can be more magic in life, who longs for a deep dive into her inner knowing, and who is ready for a wonderful adventure in a beautiful place with a supportive community…this retreat is for you!

Imagine the vivid color and pageantry of Mexico during the Day of the Dead celebration. Mexico is known for an awareness of the unseen world, magic realism, curanderismo (the indigenous healing arts), the ancient ruins, and the images and icons of a culture which mixes Christianity with indigenous religion. The Day of the Dead celebrates the period of time around Halloween, when the “veil between the worlds” is thin...Take in the sweet smell of flowers mingled the deliciousness of chile and corn wafting down the colorful streets, teeming with street art and the music of celebration. ​​​​​​​It is the biggest holiday in Mexico and is celebrated fully with altars, flowers, parades, and of course....food! 

It is a beautiful time and place to explore your own edge: the realm where creativity flourishes, insights are gained, and miracles happen.  

Todos Santos, a small town on the pacific coast of Baja is known for the beautiful celebration and we will be there to take advantage of the atmosphere. 

Todos Santos was founded as a Mission in 1724, later became a major sugar cane producer, and remains a beautiful historical town and one of Mexico’s Pueblos Magicos.
