About this healing & empowerment retreat
What you will experience
Our fourth annual 109 Women Empowerment retreat will be focused on healing so we can be comfortable with uncertainty and welcome the unwelcome.
There are many things most of us try to keep hidden from ourselves and from those around us, things that caused us pain and suffering. Things that are perceived by our minds as being ugly and painful. Things we would rather keep buried deep down inside than bring back to the surface. But the truth of the matter is that until we don’t welcome the unwelcome and heal, these things will continue to have power over us and we’ll continue to be their victims.
Healing doesn’t mean the unwelcome or uncertainty will stop existing. It means they no longer will control our life, and that’s the work we will be doing during our 5 days in beautiful & exotic Careyes, Mexico.
About the location
Careyes is situated on the Pacific coast of Mexico in Jalisco. Set in a lush natural environment, the juxtaposition of untouched land with large-scale art installations creates a magical place to recharge and feel inspired. The lush green Mexican jungle with mangroves and white sand beaches separating it from the deep blue ocean make Costa Careyes a beautiful confluence of architecture, art, community, nature, and conservation.

Where You’ll Be Staying
For the duration of this retreat, we will be staying at the unique and beautiful Samadhi Nest. Samadhi Nest is made up of spectacularly beautiful and cozy Mongolian Yurts, each with its own unique color, name, and stunning view. Blending in seamlessly with the natural serenity of the Mexican jungle and the Pacific ocean, Samadhi Nest has been designed to reunify the soul to Mother Earth by embracing and connecting with nature’s healing vibrations. It is the perfect location to escape and reconnect with both nature and ourselves!

The space is shaped in a sacred geometric formation inspired by the fractal Mandelbrot set in order to create a harmonious flow of powerful energy within the camp. Outside the main yurt, the space is filled with chill out spots and design bonfires.

I came into this experience with unfathomable trauma, anxiety, depression and truly a loss of myself; yet, I left having redefined my self-love and self-care, strengthened my voice, and grown in love for another community and people. Through this week and all the experience beyond, I am learning that I truly am my own healer, hero and leader. Thank you for keeping my heart soft and until we meet again, may 109 continue to change the world with its presence, action and intention.Caitlin Beauchamp109 Mexico
I'm so thrilled at there being more and more opportunities for women to come together and see how much power we have communally. It is important for our thriving and survival to create environments where women can form coalitions rather than put each other down (which is what culture has been telling us to do for so long). So we truly need that safe space.Anastasia Standrik109 New York
This experience was so much more than I had expected. The professionalism around a difficult topic, the caring and supports in place for participants went beyond what I could have imagined. The yoga was again very professional, therapeutic but most of all fun! We became life long friends bonded by this mission and I believe that we will all come home and make a difference here in our communities as well.Lindsay Baker109 Sweden
I was looking for several months for a trip that would help rejuvenate my mind/body/heart and help me stay on a purposeful and happy path in life. When I saw this trip I knew it was exactly what I needed, and 109 did not disappoint! The group of women were all genuine, supportive, and so fun. The personal growth from practicing yoga, learning Muay Thai, and raw conversation was exactly what I needed to experience on the beautiful island of Samui.Emily Nelson109 Thailand
