Care-free, Caring Spirit

Chereese La-Vonne - Founder & Creator

I am a free-spirit who chose to come to earth at this time and be raised by highly-religious parents, who were pioneering in areas of business, community work, and spiritual leadership. This lifelong education has helped me to hone the vision I had for how I would show up on this planet. Most notably, I have embodied a high level of discipline & dedication in my spiritual practice; it simply is my way of Being. This upbringing did not come without its pains. I have fought, since the day I was born to simply “be” and have had to become very clear on what that Being was and what it was worth. Because of this, I have also developed a keen awareness of the pattern of lies that seeks to encapsulate Truth in the world, and have gained tremendous strength in my intuitive abilities as I unraveled the lies that sought to limit my Being. 

I am a gifted spoken word poet who channels messages from Source to support individuals in their quest for Self-knowledge. I am also professionally trained as an architectural designer. My academic training offered me the ability to approach life holistically as the field of architecture requires analysis of the interconnected nature of the natural, built, and psychological environments AND their ability to reflect and effect our evolution. I include an awareness of our spiritual evolution in this analysis. Currently, I am half-way through a Masters of Design in Designed Objects at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, IL. 

My experience as a performer and cultural practitioner in my home island, Jamaica, has also been integral in my Self-education. I trained professionally in Modern Dance for 12 years, and have also experienced the benefit of practicing various instruments with Voice being my favorite. These experiences have attuned my body awareness to intuitively flow with and manipulate energy. I grew up surrounded by an awareness of the “natural mystic flowing through the air” and as a Virgo with strong earth placements, I share an intimate relationship with nature and the earth. Relating to the natural elements is a key part of my spiritual practice and I find that my guides especially love to meet with me by river-banks. 

In Jamaica, I am recognized by my community and nation as a point of inspiration for our people. I have received awards of excellence from the Government of Jamaica for my work as a mental health advocate and community worker. I have also been recognized internationally as an ‘Iconic Woman Creating A Better World For All’ by the Women Economic Forum based in New Delhi, India. My projects and public offerings reflect my true heart’s desire to see as many of us free from the bondages that hold us back spiritually. 

More than all of this, I want you to know that I am very easy-going & light-hearted. I think my approach to life (on this planet) has the right balance of reverence and irreverence to inspire the joy-filled, limitless life that I enjoy.

Retreat: Meet Your Host: About

Here's What Past Attendees Are Saying!


Experiencing this trip was better than what I dreamed of. I usually plan everything to go well and this was the first time I allowed myself to really go with the flow but the way you structured the retreat still allowed me to have intentionality with our free time. I got to embrace the side of myself that didn’t need to plan everything. There was a lot of space to feel things in the moment, and to reflect on our feminine energy and going about life that way.

This was the best spiritually transformative and healing experience I had to brighten up a very rough last year. Definitely an opportunity you don't want to miss if you are able to attend!

Thank you for curating a space that really allowed me to explore myself, Queretaro and the beauty of Mexico. It was beautiful connecting with you as well as with other persons! I think you are an amazing host and you made this entire process so seamless and you were so supportive that I am really grateful. My time spent in Mexico was absolutely lovely and I have brought that same flow and ease back home with me. And that was the goal, to see how this experience could help me to make the little and big changes that really improve my life going forward.
