Women’s Discovery Retreat to Exclusive Caribbean Villa on Isla Mujeres

Friday, February 28, 2014 to Tuesday, March 4, 2014

With Dr. Julie Lopez

Professionally led meditations and personal growth workshops combined with daily yoga create a magical and powerful experience… Leave the everyday behind at this beautiful boutique property nestled on the Caribbean coast of this tropical island paradise.

As talented women we are often stretched by the EXTERNAL demands of family, career and community. With expert guidance, this retreat is designed to foster deeper connection to our internal compass. By coming back in to contact with our INTERNAL wisdom, we can walk more confidently on our own unique path.

The Women’s Discovery Retreat will guide participants through a 3 part process (Viva!)

  • Exploration – A full inventory of the self: personal gifts, strengths, and desires, including areas of resistance and limitation
  • Purification – Detoxification of fears, old patterns or toxins that sabotage divine potential
  • Implementation – Creating specific action plans with courage to actualize visions.

Beginning the first evening with a beautiful meditation to set our intentions, followed by a very special welcome dinner overlooking the ocean, our retreat will have daily morning yoga practice followed by a supportive actualization of individual goals wih active exercises of exploration, purification and implementation (Viva!).

The retreat is structured with plenty of downtime for relaxation and reflection by the beach or pool if desired as well as many other fun island activities.

This retreat can be described as luxurious and intimate and space is limited!
