Women's Circle Retreats
Since 2005, we have been offering Women’s Sacred Circle Retreats in Yelapa, Mexico because of it's unique natural setting, open and warm, pedestrian-only community. There are no cars, no streets, no roads, only walking path in Yelapa-- and the only easy way to get there is by boat.
Next year, we are joyful to announce that we will be joined by Heather Wolf and Kellie Shannon Elliott.
Besides circle and yoga, the village life of Yelapa offers us opportunities to care for our bodies and souls through bodywork, hiking, swimming, dancing, paragliding, and making music. If we choose to rest in our Palapa, we have all the time we need to read, meditate, write, quiet our minds and open our hearts. If you're someone who enjoys speaking Spanish, there are always locals who would love a conversation. If you love children and want to volunteer an hour or two in the small community center, there are always little ones who would love your attention.
Our Retreats usually begin on Friday afternoons with dinner and end eight days later on Saturday morning with breakfast. On days we’re not in circle, or taking time for ourselves, we’ll have special adventures. We often visit the neighboring village of Pizota, which is an even smaller fishing village (only 26 families) just around the southern point of Yelapa, 10 minutes by boat. There we’ll be treated to a lesson in preparing corn tortillas from scratch and cooking them on an adobe stove.
"I loved this circle and the time we spent in Yelapa. I didn't realize how different I felt until I got on the plane and looked at my face in the bathroom mirror. I saw myself and couldn't believe how much I'd changed! Now, I'm going home to be with my family and bring to our world some of the wisdom I learned." Jenny, Seattle
"Thank you for the awesome week in Yelapa. I think about it everyday and I am so grateful. The circle we created was so loving. I am so grateful to everyone of the women there who helped me work through stuff. I'll never forget this. I consider it one of the highlights of my life." Rose, Big Sur
