In my experience, it is when we do this — leaving the busyness of daily life behind — It is here where you will find yourself, again and again, in a purposeful, peaceful, and self-assured place, ready to return and begin again..
In fact, they are anything but ordinary.
They are salt-of-the-earth immersions into place, spirit, and sacred belonging of Mexico, woven seamlessly with yoga, personal reflection and wisdom teachings..
The process looks like this:
You choose a week (or more, but always in blocks of 7 nights and eight days consecutive), and email Britt to see if the week is available. Together with Britt, you schedule your travel.
Next, you decide if you want to come alone ($799 per person/room per week), or if you want to share the experience with another ($649 per person/room per week). The house has two bedrooms (each with a queen bed). In this case, each person has her own bedroom and bath.
If, however you want to come as a couple, or with someone with whom you’d like to share a room and bed, or if there are more than two of you considering this immersion together (4 people maximum), give Britt a call, directly, at 503-780-4034 (her USA-based phone number) and discuss the details and she will explain your options — no pressure, no expectations… just exploration.
Next, choose which theme for your time speaks to you most. Please note all retreats tend to the focus through experiences, excursions, yogic teachings, classes, conversations, and the focus that Britt and her “family” in Mexico bring to light and to life, based upon your chosen personal retreat theme. (And everything is customizable.)
This is about “dropping in”. Finding your way (with or without support) to Guanajuato and getting yourself settled into Britt’s home. Then, you’ll have a loose daily schedule, with many options (a sample of offerings is below) for you to experience the richness of the culture, and the city of Guanajuato. Britt, along with a few select natives, will take you places you wouldn’t otherwise have access to. Upon making your decision that this is the Personal Retreat that suits you, you and Britt will have a conversation to begin planning a highly customized immersion experience just for you.
This personal retreat is an invitation to see beyond Mexico as a “tourist destination” and to enter into the spirituality of the place that has sustained the land and the people for thousands of years. Drawing upon native traditions, sites, and ceremonies, as well as the influence made by the Spaniards in the 1500’s introducing the culture and its people to Catholicism, you you will deep dive into the secret and sacred aspects of Mexico, its history and its people. Again, highly customizable and indigenous in nature, you and Britt will design your personalized retreat immersion.
If you are hungry for understanding and awakening more profoundly the wild, sage woman within, this retreat will support you in doing so. The Sage Woman retreat is an immersion into the Sacred Feminine, as experienced through Mexico as an original “mother culture”. Here you will weave the divine feminine as understood through yogic teachings, though the challenges modern western women face today, and the support that is drawn from the native, indigenous cultures and tribes of this land. Once you decide this is the theme for you, Britt will help you customize your personal retreat accordingly.
This is the perfect retreat for anyone seeking a quiet, “almost solo” get-away with a great amount of free time to write, heal, create, or simply “be”. Perhaps the best choice for someone who is going through a major life transition (empty nester, recent relationship or health status change, or other major identity shift). Here, with the support of Britt and her Mexican “family”, your immersion will be customized to meet your personal and transformational needs and desires.
So, there it is, Pretty. The possibilities are laid out for you, sweetly and simply.
Now, before you go much further, I want to tell you a little bit about why I have opted to offer these “personal retreats” and also be as clear as possible about how the “flow” of these retreats, and what these retreats are and what they are not.
I have always loved creating beautiful spaces, and have become increasingly attracted to simplicity. I also love yoga, indigenous practices, and all sorts of magical, spiritual experiences. As I have been personally called (or dragged, depending upon how one looks upon my story), to live and learn from Mexico, I find myself daily being touched deeply and longing to share what I see, hear, and what blows me open. And so, I am opening my home — my very simple home — to the possibility of students, seekers, and easy going travelers coming to stay in this place that I love (and has been largely misrepresented in the United States), with people and experiences that bring to my knees again and again and remind me what Love looks like, what devotion feels like and what it truly means to be free.
These personal retreats are designed for the slightly adventurous traveler and spiritual enthusiast. They are not elegant nor packed with activities, nor come with non-stop excursions. They are salt-of-the-earth, simple immersions that allow you to remember what is important, to see life through new eyes and to take this perspective back home with you. You will have scheduled time with Britt for yoga, brunch, and planning, and there is a large block during the day where you will be on your own. In this way, these are “personal” retreats, with a container of safety, structure, and opportunities customized for you and what you desire. If that moves you … drop Britt a note by completing the form below and she’ll reach out and you can begin to explore the possibilities available to you.
