Barbara and Eugenia will guide participants through a Mayan Riviera and Cancun adventure. You will stay in a beautiful luxury rental home in the secured gated community of Cumbres, Cancun. The house is located within walking distance of a grocery store, coffee shops and restaurants. Breakfasts, lunches and snacks will be included as part of the retreat.
After sunrise yoga and meditation you will be led through a morning of self exploration and conversation into who you are, and where you would like your wellness journey to take you.
The afternoon activities will coordinate with the morning workshop and group work. Evenings will be spent causally with informal discussions on what we have learned about ourselves throughout the day.
Participants will learn to integrate materials/workshops, activities and excursions together with their own self-awareness, discoveries and intuitions. It is with this hope of enhanced learning, obtaining of new tools, and gathering of increased strength, that participants attending the retreat, will walk through their own healing and well-being journey with empowerment, confidence and resilience.
Eugenia and Barbara are two Master of Social Work Clinical Therapists residing and working in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Barbara and Eugenia are colleagues, lifelong friends, and kindred spirits. They love to travel, talk, dream and set goals with each other. They found that the best place and method to do this is by traveling to Cancun together. They use their time in Cancun for relaxation, warm weather, and to take a break from their lives (such as families, partners, children, homes and work). During their travels they explore life's purpose, set new goals and re-calibrate them "selves”. Barbara and Eugenia quickly realized how effective and helpful these “retreats” were so they decided that with their combined experiences and clinical expertise they can offer this adventure to other like minded people, that may also be interested in creating increased wellness in their life.

Eugenia and Barbara lead a heart-centered, loving retreat
in a beautiful home in a peaceful neighborhood in Cancun.
They pushed me to go out of my comfort zone to grow and
explore new ideas. We experienced a combination of wonderful
cultural experiences with downtime making vision boards and
having girly time as a group chatting and dipping into the pool.
A great way to see the Yucatan on a first trip, or to try new
adventures if returning to the area. Highly recommend.
