Join Us for a Magical Week of Soul Reclamation, Authentic Sisterhood, and Profound Rebirth
You are the Medicine, Woman!
Inside of you, in the pretty, tidy, sweet parts and in the ugly, messy, horrifying parts, lives everything that you have ever wanted, needed, or believed yourself to be separate from. You are an endless well of medicine, asking to be more deeply imbibed with every setback and every breakthrough you will ever face on the path of life. You are the ultimate source of beauty, love, and truth ready to be more fully awakened, received, and offered out into the world with clarity and purpose.
You are the medicine sister.
You are the way.
Medicine Women is your sacred invitation to remember who you really are, through the innate wisdom of your own body, the ecstatic pleasure of your own aliveness, the incredible miracle of your own love, the unfaltering guidance of your own voice, and the unquestionable intelligence of the wild within you. If you feel a longing to truly deeply claim your power, your radiance, your ecstasy, your sensuality, and your love, we are blessed to receive you sister.
Welcome home to what has always been yours.
For seven days and seven nights, embraced by the Sierra Madre jungle mountains and the wild beauty of the Pacific Ocean, we will re-awaken the magic, the secrets, and the wisdom that women have known since the beginning of time, to open portals for our own deepest, truest, authentic knowing.
Journeying around the Shamanic Medicine Wheel, calling in the Meso-American Goddesses, the Body of Mother Earth, the Snake of Transformation, the Jaguar of Rebirth, the Hummingbird of Truth, the Spirit of Father Sky, and the Eagle of New Beginnings, we will receive our own medicine through deeply embracing, healing, and awakening the Magical Child, the Sensual Maiden, the Fierce Mother, and the Wise Witch within all of us, uniting our Bodies and Souls in Love.
This will be an unforgettable week of true sacredness, authentic sisterhood, mind blowing practices, deep self reclaiming, emotional wholeness, magical ceremonies, and joyous playtime in wild tropical paradise. Be prepared to rapidly transform, to fall in love with your humanness, and to remember yourself at the deepest level.
Our Earth Goddess Sanctuary
Haramara, our eco luxury retreat center for the week, means “Mother Sea” in the native Huitchol language. Mother Sea is the place where all things are received and where all things are released. It’s the place where everything begins and where everything ends. Mother Sea is the great Womb of the Earth.
It’s rare to find those sanctuaries that hold you in both sweet elegance and also raw nature, and Haramara is precisely that. Set on 12 acres of private land, with lush jungle and a golden sand beach, most of the property is completely untouched and wild. Nestled into the hills are jungle and oceanview cabanas named after precious stones (Amethyst, Malachite, Rose Quartz, Obsidian, and more) with luxurious white linens, special touches, and open air bathrooms with hot water showers. The cabanas are off-grid and lit by candles and oil lamps at night which creates an incredibly magical atmosphere and a natural transition into healthy sleep. The sense of privacy, quietude, and peace you feel on this land is unparalleled. It’s a space to receive the deepest reset from Mother Earth herself.
In addition to our eco luxury cabanas, we have a stunning circular yoga shala equipped with a Bose sound system, Manduka yoga mats, blankets, blocks, bolsters, and tropical flowers all around. We also have a chlorine-free saltwater infinity pool just below the restaurant with amazing ocean views, lounge areas to read, journal, and reflect, a spa offering a multitude of healing services, and our own wild private beach with clear Pacific Ocean waters and epically gorgeous sunsets. The property itself is a wonderland with jungle trails all around, bright colorful flowers, the sounds of the lizards and the birds, and pure peace and harmony.
Just a few miles away from our retreat center through a jungle path, is the vibrant Mexican town of Sayulita, with incredible artesanias, next-level tacos, world class surfing, and all things Mexican culture to satisfy your wanderlust.
7 nights eco-luxury accommodation
Set up on the jungle hillside, our eco luxury cabanas are completely open air with palapa roofs, wooden floors, luxuriously comfortable beds and linens, elegant touches, and spacious bathrooms with hot water showers. We have private and shared cabanas available depending on your preference. Plus, all rooms have access to our retreat center facilities including saltwater infinity pool and private beach.
Healthy gourmet meals
We’re here to nourish your body and soul with the most delicious vibrant food in Mexico. Haramara sources all of their produce from local organic vendors and create mouth watering dishes that are comforting, satisfying, and healthy. Expect fresh juices like tamarind ginger, homemade guacamole, and elegant twists on Mexican fusion food. There’s also a healthy bar beside the pool with green juices, fresh coconuts, superfood smoothies, and snacks available all day long.
Daily Embodiment Practices
Our embodiment practices are the heart of our retreat and we go deep to discover our truth and access our essence. All of our practices are a form of Body Intimacy, a unique modality I have developed over years of practice, that weaves multi-dimensional yoga, transcendental dance, breathwork, priestess rituals, and deep intimacy with your flesh and bones. Women describe our practices as nothing short of mind blowing.
Daily women’s circles and ceremonies
Each day we will come together in sacred sisterhood, in circle as women have done for eons, to share our hearts and our wisdom with one another. Ceremonies will vary and include: Cacao Ceremony, Fire Burning Ceremony, Water Ritual Beach Ceremony, and Shamanic Sweatlodge. This is a very heart opening time to connect with your womanhood through the reflections of one another and shift energy in big ways.
On one of our evenings, we will enter back into the womb of the Earth through the traditional Meso-American sweatlodge ceremony called “Temescal.” In the temescal we sweat our prayers, commune with the ancestors, release layers upon layers of suffering, and receive tremendous wisdom for our journey ahead. Leave reborn. Temescal is one of the most powerful and profound rituals you can ever do and we will be guided by a trained Mexican Temescalera.
Nature is the clearest reflection of our truest selves, and we will connect with the magical gorgeous paradise land that surrounds us. Our home is a playground in and of itself, with our abundant nature and beach, but we will also have at least one group excursion out to the National Marine Park of the Marietas islands.
Bonding, Tribe, Genuine LOVE
We create an environment of real deal FAMILY, TRIBE, CONNECTION, and SISTERHOOD. This is a space where you can truly be yourself and fall in love with the women opening their hearts right beside you. Our highest intention is to support one another in birthing more love into the world. Everything we do is for Love.
You already know everything. All of the answers live inside of you. Your body is the ultimate guide in bringing you deeper and deeper into your wisdom and your highest potential.
This is the foundation for ALL of our practices. Handing the power back over to you, your body, your soul, your heart, your wisdom. Dancing back into union all parts of you, supporting you on your path to becoming a fully integrated, whole, open hearted, sensually awakened, human being.
Our practices are DEEP. Delicious. Awakening. And unconventional. Expect the unexpected. A fusion of eyes closed dance meditation and sensual feminine intuitive flow with a sweet dose of deepening yin and restorative. We practice through ceremony. Sharing our wisdom in circle as women have done for many many many eons. All, all-ways, with the intention of being more authentically ourselves, and more fully in love with our human experience.

Your devotion to showing up in this way offers a ripple of healing into our sisterhood and far beyond what we experience together this week.
Reviews From Past Participants

Our Sacred Journey
Everything you need is already within you, ready to be embraced more deeply with love. This is the premise of our journey together, as we cycle through the seasons of womanhood, through the shamanic medicine wheel. Each day we center on a different side of the wheel: Below (Earth), South, West, North, Above (Sky), and East, while held in Circle and Individuality. Through journeying deeper into our sacred wounding and opening ourselves more expansively into divine understanding, we evolve the stories of our ancestors, ourselves, and our collective. Not by avoiding the drama, but diving allll the way into it with the clearest, fiercest, gentlest tools for our wholly embodied transformation. This is how we anchor heaven on earth.
Day One: The Earth
Relation to Mother
Goddess of Chocolate Ixcacao
Our Physical Bodies
We begin our journey with the body and the sweet sustenance of mother earth. Here we explore our relationship with Goddess, the feminine, our birth mothers, our physicality, and our humanness. This is the anchor for our entire journey, and one end of the pillar that stands at the center of our journey, reaching to meet father sky and the masculine at the opposite end. We’ll journey with the Mayan Goddess Ixcacao and receive her heart opening medicine through cacao ceremony and heart sharing as a reminder that we are always held in abundance. This is a powerful day to heal with your wounding around being separate from Earth, nature, and Goddess herself.
Day Two: The South
Element of Fire
Snake Totem Animal
Patroness of Sinners Tlaxolteotl
Bonfire Burning Ceremony
Today we dive right into the medicine wheel, plunging down into the depths of the South. Here we face our own inner fire, times of transformation, our adolescent years of turbulence and confusion, beliefs in original sin, loss of innocence, and source of shame. We activate our anger as a tool for transformation and healing, to complete what we may have never allowed ourselves in the past. With the potent medicine of Snake, we realize the true purpose of our sexuality and desire, as the pure energy for our awakening. We’ll call in the Aztec deity Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent God, as well as Aztec Goddess Tlazolteotl, known as the Patroness of Sinners, and have a bonfire burning ritual on the beach under the stars.
Day Three: The West
Element of Water
Jaguar Totem Animal
Goddess of the Moon Ixchel
Water Blessing and Release Ceremony
As we turn to the West side of the medicine wheel, we meet our time of motherhood, birth, and voice of discernment. Guided by the fiercely dynamic Mayan Goddess Ixchel, and the strong medicine of Jaguar, we explore the multi-faceted nature of mother, beyond what we may have been societally taught to believe. Calling in the roaring waves of the ocean and the sweetest gentlest tide pool, we’ll reclaim our right to our full body Yes and No, heal through the wisdom of our womb space, and become the midwives of our own souls. Jaguar asks us to step into the unknown with trust and empowerment to see the spaces that others dare not look and we’ll have a water and grief ritual down at the beach to release and open ourselves to receive.
Day Four: The North
Element of Earth
Hummingbird Totem Animal
Wise Woman Years
Temescal Sweatlodge Ceremony
Today we turn to the North, and perhaps the most avoided and denied aspect of our natural life cycle: old age. Here we become intimate with the wise woman, the crone, the witch, the shamaness. The one who has survived so many deaths, disappointments, and tremendous loss, and because of all of this, she has the compassion and wisdom to support and guide others through their own dark nights of the soul. We explore the polarities of Hummingbird medicine beside Mictecacihuatl the Goddess of the Underworld, to see beyond the illusion of our perceived deaths and rebirths, and awaken a whole new level of frequency within our beings. In the late afternoon we will have a traditional Meso-American Temescal, sweatlodge ceremony, where we’ll be guided by a powerful Mexican shamaness and healer.
Day Five: The Sky
Relation to Father
Breathwork Ceremony + National Marine Park Adventure
As we move through the void of death, we lift ourselves up in the heavenly realms of great spirit, Father Sky, the masculine, God. This is a day to look deeply at our wounds and fears of abandonment by the masculine and the divine itself. We’ll heal with our own birth fathers, brothers, lovers, and all reflections of masculine energy in our world. Opening us up to greater perspective, we will journey with Itzamma, the great Mayan God of Wisdom. As we open into lightness, we will also have a magical adventure today, visiting the famous national park of the Isla Marietas, for snorkeling, paddleboarding, and enjoy play in wild nature.
Day Six: The East
Element of Air
Eagle Totem Animal
Closing Ceremony and New Beginnings
Our journey comes full circle for our final day together, as we open into the new beginnings of the East of the wheel. Here we embrace the winds of change, the element of air, and the greater possibilities we are ready to bring forth into our lives following the retreat. As children we let ourselves dream big and open into what’s possible. This is a time to integrate what has been opened and awakened, and plant seeds for how we’d like to nurture our continued growth on this path. We will call in the Navajo goddess Etsanatlehi, Turquoise Changing Woman, to help us trust in the changes we know we need to make to live more in alignment with our true soul purpose on Earth. We will have a powerful closing ceremony that allows us all the space to profess what new beginning and new path we are stepping into more fully.

Testimonials from Past Retreats
“I thought I started my self growth journey in 2014 but that was surface child's play compared to a retreat with Camille. I had my mind blown, emotions unleashed, soul awakened, heart expanded and body enriched. I have never created such sacred bonds of sisterhood, selfhood or with nature. Every day was filled with mystery, magic and revelation. If you feel like a fire has burned out, dwindled or perhaps is waiting to be lit inside of you, this is the spark you need to ignite. Prepare to shine like you've never shined in your life.”
Alessandra, Ad Sales Rep
“There are not enough words to describe the amazing week I had on retreat with Camille. The jungle and the ocean were both truly magical places to immerse my soul in love and beauty. At the end of the week, I felt so nourished in my body and heart. The classes were transformative, the beaches were stunning, nature was surprising, and the food was also unbelievable! Camille really pulled out all the stops to make this a week you will never forget! It transcended anything I thought it was gonna be. I have honestly never felt better after a vacation.”
Anne-Elise, Yoga Teacher and Massage Therapist
“My experience working with Camille has been profound and deeply transformative. She has the innate gift of seeing through a person to their higher self, and she is able to work absolute magic on that plane. I can't express how powerful it is to have someone so tuned in guiding you through personal growth.”
Jen, Geologist and Poet
“Even though I've been practicing yoga for years, I've never felt this level of connection. Through the embodiment practices, I tapped into more expansiveness and sensation in my body than ever before. The dance meditation, the music, and the prompts helped me go so deep into my body and into my psyche to flush out stored memories and trauma. I let go of so much stagnant and stuck energy and feel like I've come out of the retreat rebirthed- fresh and new. Throughout the week, I was reminded of our divinity, our sacredness, the sacredness of everything, and our connection to everything. I felt like I had really embodied the Priestess- fully human and fully divine.”
Mona Luna, Yoga Teacher and Women’s Circle Creatrix
“I cant express how immensely happy I am that I chose to do this retreat. I now have amazing lifelong friends I wouldn’t have had prior to coming, and a brand new perspective to life that I know is only going to bring in more positivity. I highly recommend this retreat to anyone who needs to hit the reset button, who wants to unleash their inner child, and who is seeking to really find out their truth which has been lying within you all along.”
Tyler Renee, Empowerment Coach
“This retreat was a feast for my senses and my soul. It’s hard to put into words just how meaningful the entire week was to me. It was a time to connect in sisterhood and explore my own feminine beauty and power. There was an open and respectful understanding that we each needed to dig as deep as we felt comfortable doing so, by listening to the guidance of our own minds, hearts and bodies. I love Camille’s ability to wear her heart on her sleeve, to be vulnerable, and to share the challenges and successes of her life. She is open, transparent, loving, kind, compassionate, honest and such a wonderful teacher.”
“I signed up for the retreat to relax a bit and practice yoga. What I got was so much more than I could ever expect or even imagine. I laughed, cried, loved, and grew with amazing women whose bonds I will carry with me for the rest of my life. It was an amazing, unforgettable experience.”
Liz, Yoga Teacher
“I had so much that I needed to let go of and I felt that Camille was the first person who was telling me through her words that it was ok to just surrender. It was magic and exactly what I needed in life! Camille knows how to touch your soul through her teachings and encourage that healing process so we can become the best version of ourselves.”
Krista, Women’s Coach and Retreat Leader
“What Camille has created with this retreat can hardly be put into words. Just sitting here thinking about it my heart fills to the brim and overflows. While on this retreat I experienced so much more than I expected or knew could be possible. I went not knowing what I was looking for and taking home with me exactly what I needed. Every moment, every plan, every excursion and even meal put together in this retreat was built with her entire heart and soul. Go on this retreat it will be the greatest gift you can give yourself!”
Amber, Marketing Manager
About Your Facilitator
Aloha love, I’m Camille and I’ll be creating and guiding our week together. My life’s work is to inspire women to live more fully in love with their bodies, one another, Mother Earth, and the paradoxical dance of life. Every part of you is sacred and I believe that with my whole entire heart. Our retreats are designed to be a living, breathing reminder of that truth for each and every single one of us.
While traditional yogic philosophy and asana sequences have formed the foundation for my practice, my own healing have come through inventing new ways of connecting with the body that expand beyond any limits or labels. To me, nature is the clearest reflection of our true nature, and feeling her heartbeat as mine is the ultimate yoga. This is how I learn, so this is how I teach.
Along with my certification and training hours as a yoga teacher, I’m also a dance meditation facilitator and have trained in many healing modalities including rebirthing breathwork, Hawaiian lomi lomi, tantra, women’s mystery schools, cacao ceremony, compassionate listening, Gene Keys and Human Design, and much more. On retreat I weave together various modalities to support you in remembering your wisdom, your innocence, your beauty, your truth. Learn more about my facilitation style and training here.
