Accepting change under the full moon in Taurus.
Moon Me hosts a series of women-only retreat focusing on self-discovery and healing through meditation, crystals, herbs, vegan eating, and new/full moon rituals. Taking place along the Balearic Sea in Sitges, Spain we'll:
- Charge our crystals under the moons whilst learning about them, their powers, and different uses
- Release what no longer serves us through guided meditation
- Walk along the beach lined promenade in silence listening to our thoughts and noting key elements to jot down during periodic beach stops
- Replenish and fuel our body with vegan meals
- Journal over tea on the terrace over looking the sea as the bells of Church of Sant Bartomeu & Santa Tecla chime every quarter hour.
Full moons are an optimal to see the fruits of your new moon labor (and show them off), as well as reassessing where you are, and the drastic changes needing to happen to get where you want to be. With it being in Taurus coming to terms with what you require for stability, what that looks like for you, and coming to terms with what that entails. We'll seal the full moon with intention writing and burning, followed by solo baths (or showers) comprised of different elements of your choosing.
There is a seismic shift happening in the world around us. No longer can we change the world for our benefit. It's a broken system that history has proven time and time again does not work. We have to change for the betterment of ourselves and the world's future. And we can only do that if we look deep within and unearth who we truly are.
This is not for anyone who can't, or chooses not to, come with an open mind and clear heart. Everyone will be carrying some sort of baggage, therefore it's critical that we listen, speak, and react with love throughout the trip with one another.

Sitges is a coastal village 40 minutes outside Barcelona's city center. I describe it as a tiny Barcelona, completely walkable in just a couple of hours, with views from every angle. The Balearic Sea lines the coast with walkable rock paths stretching far out to the sea. There are tons of shops, restaurants, bars to explore during free time.
Deposits are non-refundable.
Payments (minus deposits) refundable up until June 1, 2019. Life happens, but understand, to make this retreat as easy and comfortable as possible, securing things happen far in advance. No refunds, no matter the circumstance, will be given after the aforementioned date.

Originally from Houston, Texas, Tillie Eze has lived in four countries and five states, including her last being Brooklyn, NY. It was where her severe depression and anxiety worsened, coping with a stagnant life in a job with no prospects. Yearning to do more, Tillie got a life coach.
It was that one investment that evolved into actively choosing her self betterment. This led to becoming vegan, experimenting and gaining knowledge on proper use of herbs for mental illness, and connecting with a healer to breakdown trauma. She began to openly share her journey on social media and noticed that she was fortunate enough to know where to begin. There were others still afraid out of fear of being scammed, judged for delving into a "woo-woo" realm, or just not experiencing it the way others do.
Since then, Tillie has practiced different self-discovery and meditation techniques, as well as curating varying cannabis strains to ensure proper usage in a safe environment. Over the years, she has created a wealth of resources - healers, apothecaries, organizations - to further connect folks with on their own journey of self discovery.
Tillie is the creator of Moon Me, teacher of guided meditation, and practitioner of Heartfulness meditation

**For all meals that are not included, you are more than welcome to bring back food to the villa and eat on the terrace (if open), or dining area. Extra necessities including water, snacks, leftovers can be stored in fridge.
One thing I want to stress is that people who have never done something like this before, don't know how taxing it can be. I want people to understand that not every meditation session, or journal walk is mandatory. A lot of things arise, and being on your own may be the only way to really grapple with them. My mission is to just crack that shell a little. It's up to you to continue down this route, no matter how uncomfortable it gets. But I'll provide resources in your area with guides who do remote or in-person work, and create challenges for you to follow up with me about.
