Taking time for ourselves and creating art is essential to a loving and healthy self. During the Manifesting Magic and Mosaics week long retreat Tami and Vickie will lead participants on healing, opening up their creative spirit and allowing their inner child to come out and play.

Vickie and Tami have personally designed this retreat to create a space for exploring and healing your heart, manifesting abundance and allowing yourself to play and just be.

This retreat will give you a safe place to explore, define, express and deepen your connection and understanding of self. Vickie will share ways that empower you to consciously tap into your intuitive feminine power, your energy, curiosity, spirit and trust as you move through life.

Vickie will lead participants through healing circles, introduction to meditation, manifesting, chord cutting, journaling, guided meditations, burning ceremonies, hiking, todos feb20165beach walks and much more.  Each participant will also receive Vickie’s book “Manifest ANYTHING you want in 30 Days”.

Tami will lead participants on how to create a Mosaic Mantra Board while letting the inner child in each of us come out to play.  This is a mixed media art project that is for any level.  It includes adding a variety of colorful affirmation words, personal/sentimental objects and many other fun materials to create a mosaic that will remind you of your Manifesting Magic and Mosaics experience once home.

Todos Santos is an artist colony on the Tropic of Cancer, just one hour north of Cabo San Lucas, but an entire world away. Nestled next to 70 miles of pristine, undeveloped beach, Todos Santos is famous for the remarkable quality of its light, which drew the first 328American artists from Taos in the 1980s. Since then artists of all stripes and nationalities have populated the town, which is a charming reflection of their passions with wonderful restaurants, art galleries, and shops. The people of Todos Santos are warm and welcoming, and love sharing the pleasures of their hometown with visitors. The beaches of nearby Pescadero and Cerritos are added bonuses.

You will spend one full week at one of the most creative and peaceful settings on the Baja Peninsula, the pueblo magico of Todos Santos.  The accommodations for this retreat will be at the beautiful boutique hotel, Los Colibris Casitas. Los Colibris has a variety of wonderfully inviting casitas, each with comfortable beds, spacious and nicely decorated bathrooms and private patios from which you can enjoy the amazing scenery and ocean views. The infinity pool and hot tub are great for star gazing and observing the humpback and grey whales that are often visitors at certain times of year.

There will be free time to explore the town of Todos Santos and its surrounding areas. Popular activities include gallery strolls, shopping and eating in town. There will also be excursion options that can be booked through Todos Santos Eco Adventures (before or after the retreat if you choose to extend your stay). Massage is offered at Los Colibris in your room by appointment.  Room selections will be made in order of full payments received.  Here are a few websites to check out:

Here is a quick article that came out January 9, 2018, rating Todos Santos and Los Colibris as the number one place to check out by Outside Magazine!  

Todos Santos


“Todos Santos overlooks the Pacific Ocean, on the western side of the Baja Peninsula. Visiting in winter means swimming with whale sharks, snorkeling with sea lions, and sipping mezcal on the beach, with a chance to spot humpback whales and hundreds of fish species. Reserve an oceanfront casita at Los Colibris . Through the hotel, you can book daylong guided hiking trips into the nearby Sierra de La Laguna range or overnight glamping trips in the Sea of Cortez on Espiritu Santo Island, a UNESCO World Heritage site that you’ll reach by boat.”  Outside Magazine
