The Full Package
Private or Shared Accommodations for 10 Days
You will live elegantly in an aesthetically rich private room right in the heart of the charming historical center of Santiago de Querétaro. You will have a choice between a private room with your own bathroom, or one of the comfortable beds in the shared "Pajama Room" and shared bathroom. The Pajama Room holds 6 people and have two full bathrooms and private lockers. This home is over 100-years old and has been updated to balance modern facilities with reverence of its deep heritage. The house is private to us and each room has its own en suite bathroom with a waterfall hot-water shower. There is also free wifi all throughout the house. You will have access to a shared courtyard, pool, rooftop terrace, piano lounge, remote workspace, kitchen, & free laundry service. You will be footsteps away from the historic Plaza de Armas... the birthing site of Mexican Independence.
Daily Breakfast, 7 Dinners, & 6 Lunches
You will be provided with a hearty & healthy breakfast daily prepared by our private chef. We'll also enjoy lunch and dinner together on most days. (You can also refer to the itinerary). On integration days you'll be encouraged to allow your intuition to guide your day and so lunch and dinner are up to you and the beautiful gastric landscape of the Santiago de Queretaro. For all meals, I am happy to ensure vegan and vegetarian options are available based on your food preferences.
Two Community Connection Dinners
Two of our dinners will be tied to your welcome and departure, this is a shared meal and time of communion with other guests and your hosts. We will create the space of open-hearted, laughter-filled, and culturally-rich exchanges among us. Expect music, laughter, and great food under the stars.
Three Sunrise Yoga Sessions
For three mornings during the week, you will be able to share in a movement meditation session with a trained Instructor in the villa's courtyard. I have found this Instructor to have a keen awareness of the interrelated aspects of movement and meditation, such that their sessions feel both physically challenging and spiritually centering. Mats will be provided.
Three Soul Mirror Sessions (Intuitive Journaling Workshop)
I will lead you through the intuitive journaling, movement, and meditation practices that has unlocked new levels of emotional awareness for my clients. Wear something comfy, grab your journal, and come ready to meet yourself at a deeper level.
Ancient Mayan Temazcal Ceremony
Temazcal is a Mexican Sweat Lodge Ceremony led by my trusted local Shaman. You will partake in a cleansing ceremony involving chanting, music, and herbs. The ceremony takes place in a dome-shaped earth brick hut representing a womb from which you will be reborn. The session lasts about 2 hours and is an incredible way for you to connect with your natural abilities to release stuck energy. You will leave energetically lighter.
Nature Outing - Mirador Cuatro Palos
We will travel to a heavenly location to watch the sunrise over a vast mountain range, casting dancing shadows on the hillocks below. It is roughly a 3-hour drive from the city center and requires a short 20-minute hike. You will have the opportunity to meditate, eat, or explore in this magical place. It is absolutely worth it.
Cultural Experiences - Art & Architecture
You will have the opportunity to partake in an art workshop making local designs with a local Artisan, an architectural tour of Queretaro's historical city center (a UNESCO world heritage site) with a local Architect, and a short tour of the magical town of Bernal.
Ecstatic Dance Party
On our last night together, we will celebrate the integration of mind, body, soul with a mindful ecstatic dance party. This is a time to let loose and let the new levels of personal freedom flow through you in a deliciously intuitive way. No dance experience needed!
You will indulge in a healing session with a master masseuse who combines hands-on and hand-off approaches to aligning your chakras and overall energy.
Package of Ritual Items
You will be gifted with a few of the key items in my ritual practice; a journal, incense, & organic herbs.

It has a swimming pool, terrace with grill, room with movie screen and piano, dining room, fully equipped kitchen and several corners worthy of photography.

The retreat opened new doors for me. I definitely feel comfortable going home & doing what I really want to do [career-wise] now. All my life I've felt like I needed to work extra hard especially as a woman of color in the U.S. But, coming to Mexico, I had the opportunity to really reflect on all of that for myself.
Michelle, Fall 2021
Transformational. Doing Temazcal, and other things, this trip started making me think more about my relationship to pain. It made me connect to and figure out a way to view it moving forward.
It was a healing, transformational experience for me.

" I’ve been unlocked and I have no desire to go back to the life I once knew. The removal of blocks & connectivity mirrored with Chereese was an out of this world experience my soul needed. Everyone deserves time to let their soul grow."
