It’s time to ROOT down so we can RISE up.
What clarity and inspiration could occur if you took the time to REST & reflect;
to nourish your WHOLE self?

You give so much, what if you took time to come home to yourself, even for just a week?

You are invited to this benevolent space of curiosity.
I invite you to give yourself permission to unplug from the 'busy';
to fill your cup, let nature rejuvenate you and experience more moments of falling in love with yourself, your body, your life.

You are invited to experience a restful and playful week as unique as you.

Embodied Vitality :: February 20-27, 2021
Haramara Retreat, Sayulita Mexico


Transformation and healing happens every time women gather to witness and be witnessed.

Transformation and evolution happens when we remember the elements of our truest nature and fall in love with our precious bodies.

Transformation and ease happens as soon as we say yes to taking the time to PAUSE our daily habits and explore new perspectives

There is wisdom in our bodies & in the Earth.

There is wisdom within the 5 elements of Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire that exist within each and every one of us. 
There is a wisdom in the aliveness of in-person experiences. 
Haramara invites us to listen within.

I’m calling together a community of women to live fully. The world needs women that are vibrant & nourished, centered & curious, embodied & response-able.

We cannot wait for life to slow down, we have to choose it. 
We cannot find our center by looking out, we have to take time to look within. Haramara holds us in our inquiry.
Personal Retreat is one way to bring our hearts and minds into resonance and explore what it means to be personally responsible in this life. When we gather with such intentions, our collective vision for a better world and the next right action is revealed.

What I know as a doctor and a woman on my own journey, is that we must start with our relationship to ourself and our own bodies first for real change to occur. We must slow down enough to know what this means. This week will give you just that.

A few kind words: 

"Amazing doesn't even come close to describing this week.  This experience was ground breaking for me and so touching.  I feel held and LOVED and heard.  I had no idea what to expect and it was more than I ever could have imagined.  I feel like I've found my voice and MYSELF a little bit more. 
I now know that I am a priority and am going home with complete permission to care for and LOVE myself fully.  I don't have huge financial abundance in my life, this experience was worth every single penny."  ~ Shannon C.-Portland, OR

Our time together will be juicy! What if giving yourself an opportunity to slow down, nourish your body and connect with something deeper in side your own heart is the one next step to living your life from a grounded, CALM and centered place?

This experience will fill you up.
 to feel healthy, radiant and whole, as nature designed us.

What if our wholeness and embodying our worth depends on finding our way home to our own hearts together? Worth is another way of saying 'plenty'. It's knowing I AM ENOUGH; in all of my expressions.  This is a state of resting abundance. This is our most natural state when we live in solidarity with others and in harmony with our environment. XO Dr. RACHEL

There is magic that happens on Retreat.

Breath taking sunrises and sunsets that teach us how to TRUST the moment.
Resting in your open air casita with ocean waves crashing below, OR by the infinity pool with little to do but breathe, nap or dive into a good book.
Nourishing yourself with whole food, a special cacao ceremony and real connection with like-hearted women.

Together we will say YES to nourishing our whole self and as a result......
RESTORE by unconditionally loving whatever arises.

Together we will rest, dance, play, intuitively allow what Haramara has to offer us. 

Together we will REMEMBER what is most important.  I’ve witnessed the rejuvenation that happens while at Haramara and now I wish to offer the same gift to you.
IT’S OK TO REST & receive. It’s requested by our truest nature.

If your heart is singing YES...breathe that in, listen and contact me HERE.  I am connecting with everyone to provide the best experience possible.
Join us. YOU are welcome here. 

You deserve this.

As a physician I never make guarantees but I can promise you one WILL have a uniquely beautiful experience during this time together. Something happens when we gather in a place like Haramara that cannot be bottled or captured or experienced virtually or on-line. Thank goodness for modern tech that allows us to stay “connected” across great distances and busy schedules, but we are losing something...
our connection to nature, to our true nature.  This space will hold your remembering.

Spirit is calling everyone... invite in new perspectives, to open new eyes of grander vision and feel all the "feels" so we can resolve the things holding us back from our fullest vitality.

Going on personal Retreat is one beautiful way to immerse ourselves in the practice of simply being.  Besides, who doesn't love a tropical "get away"?!
This will be a true vacation FROM your busy, full, already beautiful, yet demanding day to day life.

This time in history beckons us to soften, to loosen our grip and ask one very important question:

What would Love do?

Haramara will hold us in our asking, in whatever intention we set, so if you say yes to this, BRING IT.
Bring ALL of you.

A few kind words: 

"Haramara itself was healing, the food was phenomenal.  The whole week was exactly what I needed.  The afternoon Wisdom sessions provided me with so much insight.  Rachel was so generous and open hearted and every day I came away with little treasures. The whole experience was so thoughtful, a perfect balance of connecting with others and time for my own introspection. The ideas shared were profound and touched my heart in ways I know I will remember. 

I'm going home with a more open heart and feel like I've done some amazing healing here in only a weeks time.  Thank you so much."~ Pam M.-Shorewood, WI

Who this is NOT for:
If you have severe physical limitations, Haramara may be too rugged for you. If you have questions about this ask me.
If you tend to blame others, yourself and external life for your experience of living instead of being open to new perspectives, this is not for you.
If you think you already know all there is to know about your body, about love, about relationships, about spirituality, about embodiment, about empowerment, about the feminine, the masculine, the elements….then your cup is already full and this experience is not for you. But, thank you SO very much for your interest!

"We need others. We need others to love and we need to be loved by them. There is no doubt that without it, we too, like the infant left alone, would cease to grow, cease to develop, choose madness and even death."
— Leo Buscaglia
