Todos Santos, just 1.5 hours north of Cabo San Lucas on the Pacific Ocean side of the Baja peninsula in Mexico, is a lifetime away in spirit and feel. There are no high-rises and most of the roads here are still sand. We discovered this magical oasis last year and stayed for several months. Todos can be described as a “hippie-surfer-meets-yogi” kind of place where sitting on the beach, you can see whales jump out of the ocean in celebration during the winter months. The weather is picture perfect and the beach is stunning. There’s a lot of magic in the air. We felt this was the exact right place to hold a transformational retreat with Caren Osten, a certified Positive Psychology Life Coach & Mindfulness expert. Caren’s unique coaching style and our connection with the other the powerful women and the nature around us, will empower us to launch into the new year with newly discovered energy and inner peace. As we move into a fresh new year, join us to discover what makes a happier, healthier, more peaceful life. The last several years have taken a toll on all of us – emotionally, physically, and psychologically. And yet, despite the challenges we face and the obstacles that life inevitably throws our way, it is the choices we make that help us create a happier, healthier, more peaceful life. During our time together, we’ll discover the benefits of mindfulness and learn ways to increase positivity and resilience, reduce stress, and nurture relationships. We’ll start our year with a toolkit of practical strategies, including mindfulness meditation, gratitude, boosting positivity, and self-compassion. And we’ll do it all in one of the most beautiful, undiscovered destinations on the planet, Todos Santos Mexico. This is the ideal time to be discovering Todos. You can’t help but see dozens of whales jumping out of the water each day. The word is just starting to get out, so capture this paradise before it’s flooded with tourists. “A friend may be waiting behind a stranger’s face.” ― Maya Angelou
