India Retreat 2024

A transformational retreat for people that want to dive into the magic of India

If you love to explore the Indian culture with a group of like-minded people, while also having time for yourself, then join us for this magical transformational yoga retreat in Kerala, where you’ll do lots of yoga and meditation and discover the beauty of magical India.

Seated comfortably in a quiet corner near the Pyramid of the Moon, you welcome the warmth of the sun as you watch a black butterfly dancing and sailing on the wind. The Avenue of the Dead stretches more than a half mile in front of you.

On your left towers the massive Pyramid of the Sun, on your right the ornate Palace of the Jaguars. Your whole body hums with gratitude and anticipation as you take it all in.

In the next moment, you close your eyes, and the lively notes of a nearby flute transport you back to the congenial Dreaming House, the place you call home during this magical adventure.

You smile inwardly as you remember the warm greetings from your Mexican hosts, your colorful living quarters, and your exciting encounters with your fellow travelers. You delight as you dream of the delicious, home-cooked meals, the explorations and discoveries, the laughter and love.

But most of all, you delight in the shift. How and when it happened you’re not quite sure, but so much has changed during the last two days. In less than 48 hours, you’ve dropped the heavy baggage of the past. You’ve loosened and lightened up.

Your mind has emptied and expanded. You feel clearer and more confident, more awake and alive. You’ve surrendered to the magic of Teotihuacan. You’ve buried your limitations and left them behind.

As you stand up and start back to the Dreaming House for a late afternoon lunch, you’re astonished at how liberated you feel. After all these years of hesitation and self-doubt, there’s a celebration going on inside. You’ve finally found yourself. In fact, you feel reborn. And this is only the beginning!

Welcome to the magic of Kerala!

And what is possible for you here?

For starters, how empowering would it feel to… 


  • Embrace traditional business strategies while staying true to yourself and being of service in this self-centered, competitive world?
  • Push past paralysis and take wise action, even when you’re weighed down with work?
  • Have the clarity and confidence you need to know exactly what to do next in your business?
  • No longer feel anxious or overwhelmed by the constant demands of running a business?
  • Kick all sense of struggle and discouragement to the curb as you watch your business finally take off?

Is this you? You…

  • Have done some work on yourself and are now ready to surrender the old for the new

  • Have navigated or are navigating menopause and are ready for the next phase of life to be juicy, alive, and meaningful

  • Are in a transitional phase in life where you are asking – what about me now?

  • Want to feel confident and capable, while flowing from your deep feminine wisdom

  • Can often glimpse your power, but sometimes feel doubt and uncertainty

  • Could do with a boost to finally let go of what holds you back in life

  • Want to see more clearly your gifts, your desires, and how you can best serve others

  • Seek support, inspiration, and wisdom from other like-minded wise women

  • Want a deep rest from your day-to-day and to feel nourished, held and fulfilled

  • Seek to create a lasting transformation that allows you to step fully into being your authentic, expressed, natural self

These are only some of the hidden abilities you will uncover as ancient, alchemical processes harness the power of Teotihuacan to peel away the layers of resistance and illusion inside you.

In days, you’ll find yourself more able to…


  • Integrate areas of conflict within so that you can wholeheartedly be of service through your business;
  • Feel progressively calmer and more at peace so that you can effectively respond to even the most demanding work situations;
  • Transcend old patterns of limitation, dropping inner resistance and revealing the qualities you need most to make your business a success;
  • Access your own ocean of inner wisdom, leaving you with a more reliable inner guidance system to navigate your business and life;
  • Become immersed in intense presence, so that you can respond to the moment even under heavy pressure.

Wouldn’t that be enough to join us?
