The 14th Annual Radiant Retreat:

What’s Next? Trusting Your Path, and Possibilities

March 14-21, 2020 Maya Tulum, Mexico

For over a decade, the Radiant Retreat has created a nurturing, creative space for students to gather, to return, to cultivate and nourish the integral relationship between calm mind, physical body, and authentic heart.


Do you need to get away?

Want to explore meditation, yoga, or creative writing? 

Are you looking to reboot, and relax?

Join us on retreat to know your self anew.

The Radiant Retreat is an inspiring week of self-discovery, self-care, and creativity. The retreat is a safe and beautiful environment to explore mind-body connection, life choices and what matters most to you. The adventure of self-awareness and authentic well-being unfolds through meditation, journal and memoir writing, yoga, healthy meals, fun and beach time.

Maya Tulum is internationally recognized as one of the most stunning beaches and wellness destinations on the Yucatan Peninsula. The resort offers the most outstanding sheltering “palapa”, a special round hall where you can hear the ocean and realize your goals and intentions to relax, meet like-minds, laugh and have tons of fun.

 Whether a beginner or an advanced practitioner, participate in as much or little of the daily schedule as you like. No need to be a “meditator”, “yoga person” or “a writer.” All welcome.
