Isla Mujeres – the Island of Women – historically has been used for retreat and healing rituals among the Mayan peoples because it powerfully evokes elemental life… rich, lush and alive.
Who We Are
We invite women to gather for retreat and replenishment on Isla Mujeres, an island in the tranquil turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean. This island is sacred to Ixchel, the Mayan Moon Goddess and historically a place for healing rituals among the Mayan people. We will create a circle of abundance, compassion and support as we weave together our stories and wisdom. By honoring Ixchel’s tradition, we become midwives of our dreams and visions. Storytelling, yoga, journaling, poetry, guided imagery, and more…will serve as forms to access the blessings and beauty that flow in each of us. Participants will stay at Na Balam, an intimate, boutique hotel on the beach where landscaped trails, tropical gardens and the beauty of the ocean will provide a perfect abode for the retreat.
“Why did I ever leave you, oh gentle healing Isle of Women? I can still feel the water of the sea holding me up as I lay back and just burbled happiness. For one week I was warm. The temperature, the love of the women in the group … and the food was without parallel.”Mary Frances - Pennsylvania
“I’m so glad I followed my heart’s intuitive call to join the incredible women who came together on Isla Mujeres. The compassionate energy of the circle was a beautiful container for all of us journeying women as we were truly held by each other and the presence of the Mayan Goddess Ixchel. I was blessed to receive the healing and pampering experience that I was hoping for and I know that waves of healing will continue to bathe me like the clear turquoise waters of this island paradise. I whole-heartedly encourage you to discover this journey – I’m sure you’ll feel blessed as I did.”Corinne - British Columbia
