Sacred Awakening Retreat in Guatemala


Dear exhausted soul (living inside an ambitious entrepreneur), you found your way here with a little help from the Universe. Trust this is the exact message you need to receive. Because I have something important to tell you.

It’s okay, powerful one. It’s okay to want to slow down and listen.

To reconnect with the ancient wisdom of the Earth.
To desire more beauty, more flow, more ease, more harmony in your life, in your business, in our world.
To get back to your truest self...the part of you that has been drowned out by the to-dos, should-dos, would-dos, and have-tos.
To be honest, my love, it is not just okay to want this.

I believe it is your divine right to have this. A life of pure joy, abundance, harmony, grace. And you know it.

You can feel it. It is an ache deep down.

A constant reminder that even though things are amazing, you need more. You want more. You deserve more. You demand more.

Not just for yourself. Or your business. Or even your clients. But for your soul. Your purpose.

Your fierce devotion to truly living (and feeling). The answers you seek, the impact you want to make, they live in the heart of your truth.

Your truth reveals itself only while dancing on the edge

Do you hear the wild sister call?

Starting out, it had to be more hustle than heart. But all grit and no grace will only take you so far until the facade wears off and your true self demands to be seen. So instead of putting on another mask - the mask of what your coach wants, what others are doing, what you wish you already had, what if you could release it all and awaken the goddess within?

What if you stop trying to get validation from others and instead boldly step forth, with unshakable confidence, and acknowledge- no, embrace - the untamable and unstoppable wild woman you are?


Sacred Awakening Retreat in Guatemala

in honor of beauty, abundance + grace


Join us on this magical experience to activate all of your senses while nourishing your mind, body, spirit, energy, and soul. Journey to this mystical place and participate in ceremonies that elevate your business and expand your consciousness. Give yourself permission to retreat and be intoxicated by the beauty of Lake Atitlan, one of the most sacred places on Earth.

I invite you to connect with the healing powers of the sacred locus, Lake Atitlan.

Replenish your body, mind, spirit, and essence through the element of water. Allow Guatemala’s feminine energy to remind you how to surrender, relax, and connect with your intuition. Enter the world in between the mountains and the lake to reunite with your soul.

Show your fullest range and unleash the WILD woman that resides within you. Honor the divine feminine through connecting in sisterhood.

At this retreat you will learn to:

  • Welcome the Goddess Lakshmi into your business (no matter your business model)
  • Carve out time to birth your newest creations in your business and your life
  • Create a new way of leading in your business and redefine what it means to serve your clients

  • Move your sacred temple (your body) to connect your spirit with your soul and body to feel the guidance of your intuition

The hustle doesn’t have to be real.

Why we will seek refuge in the Goddess Lakshmi?

Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth and prosperity, both material and spiritual. The word ''Lakshmi'' is derived from the Sanskrit word Lakshmi, meaning "goal." Lakshmi, therefore, represents the goal of life, which includes worldly as well as spiritual prosperity.

It is said that when you allow Lakshmi into your heart, you radiate beauty, manifest grace, and feel a sense of profound happiness, enjoyment, and liberation.

Lakshmi stands for abundance, beauty, sensuality, calm, prosperity, love, grace, ease, success, fame, presence. Those who welcome in Lakshmi are rewarded with...

  • Skills of success, worldly and spiritually

  • Love, harmony, and kindness

  • A beautiful life of abundance and freedom

Is Lakshmi calling you forward?

Answer her call only if...

  • You desire to connect with other extraordinary women.

  • You yearn for a break from the everyday so you can transcend what is holding you back.

  • You dream of living the nomadic lifestyle ... sometimes.

  • You’ve been consumed by wanderlust but don’t want to travel to a new country on your own.

  • You are ready to live from your essence - your sacred being.

  • You desire to flow with the divine feminine.

  • You are committed to learning how to expand your business and life with grace and ease.

  • You are a magical being - a sister, teacher, leader, momma, mentor, student, medicine woman, and lightworker.

Her song is intoxicating. Drink from her cup and activate your own inner goddess in a land of wonder and adventure.

What if I want to wait until next year?

If the following year feels better, then lovely; we will see you then dear sister. If putting it off is your mind resisting the travel then we ask that you get in touch with your inner voice and ask her what she desires. Is she calling you forth to come?
