RECLAIM your mojo in magical mexico.

March 11-18, 2023

If you’re feeling tired, stuck in your endless to-do list, and don’t know how
to break free of the monotony, come to beautiful troncones beach, Mexico
to Leave your stress and burnout behind. 

 

embrace possibility in paradise

It’s been so long since you took time for you, that it feels a bit strange to find yourself in this small enclave in Troncones, Mexico, situated in the middle of one of the most pristine beaches on the west coast.

Breathing in the warm scent of the ocean, feeling the sand, cool and creamy between your toes, you’re surprised by how relaxed you feel. You just got here!

Despite this sense of relief, you feel a familiar undercurrent of discomfort. Were you just being selfish in taking this time for yourself?  Was it fair to ask your work team to cover you for a week?  Will your kids survive a week of your husband’s cooking?  Who’s going to get the dog to the vet this Friday?

You’re shocked back into the present by something that looks like a huge fin erupting through the ocean surface.  There it is again!  It’s a whale, a freaking whale, right there in front of you, not more than 100 yards from where you stand on the beach!  You want to run and tell someone, but you can’t look away. The beauty and grace of this creature captivate you as she effortlessly glides and changes directions.

Your breath slows, your feet sink further in the sand, and your heart softens as you savor this amazing moment alone.

Breathe. Release. Return.

You came to Mexico for some much-needed downtime. You’ve been so exhausted that you’re tempted to stay in your bungalow to sleep the first two days.

You’ve been wired and tired for so long, you can’t remember what it feels like to let down and simply be.

Logically you understand your fatigue is a symptom. Overworking, over-functioning, blurred boundaries, and endless comparison mask an unspoken knowing. 

Somewhere amid the daily chaos, you’ve lost your mojo and you’re not entirely sure how to find it!

You’re not alone.

What may start as a way to manage difficult emotions often has the opposite effect; the impact of denying discomfort can boomerang with enormous force.

Instead of dealing with our doubts, we prefer distraction–compulsively arranging and rearranging the deck furniture on the Titanic, denying the gaping hole below.

Avoidance is costly. The only way out is through. 

At your center, you know the opposite of self-abandonment is presence. 

This retreat is the first step on your inward journey home.  The warmth of the sea air, the smell of the ocean, and the peaceful beauty of this place are welcoming you home.

LOVE THE SKIN YOU'RE IN

Ask a woman what she loves about her body and you get crickets.  Ask her what she doesn’t like and you’ll get a laundry list.

Women in our culture are notoriously hard on themselves when it comes to loving their bodies. Self-judgment and comparison rob us of embracing the very beauty we seek.

There’s nothing more beautiful than a woman who’s comfortable in her own skin. She knows her worth comes from the inside and not from the estimation of others. 

Maya Angelou’s poem, Phenomenal Woman, reminds us that beauty isn’t dependent on our age, the color of our skin, or our eye color; it’s about owning our own power.

“Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.”

Excerpt from the poem Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou

Each of you is a phenomenal woman in your own right–whether or not you’ve yet to own it. 

Learning to be comfortable in your own skin isn’t just attractive, it’s emancipation!

As you learn to love, accept, and care for your body, you gain the confidence to release limiting beliefs and perfectionism.

This retreat offers the opportunity to shift beyond cultural stereotypes, embrace your own inner knowing, and practice compassion, beginning with yourself. 

Because there’s nothing more attractive than a woman who knows herself, accepts herself, and makes no apologies for either. 

"i'm so grateful i said yes."

The last few years of my life have been intense. My husband passed away, COVID isolation with two young children, a career change--a lot to process. So when a friend invited me to Tina's wellness retreat in Barbados, I knew the respite was what I needed. I'm so grateful that I said yes. Tina arranged such a fabulous experience, and all I had to do was show up. On top of all that, I met a strong, empowered group of women that I know will be lifetime friends. I can't wait to retreat with them all again. I highly recommend."

"Barbados was transformational! Our accommodations were breathtaking! The staff were all welcoming, friendly, kind and caring. Tina leads you in a relaxed, restorative yoga session each morning. Then, has a variety of daily activities planned and you’re welcome to do as many or few as you wish. There is no pressure to do it all, with your retreat being a unique experience created just for you. Tina provides a safe and encouraging environment for women to share their experiences. I was empowered by the stories shared by each of them."

"A retreat with Tina Sprinkle connects you with nature, adventurous and fun people and most of all back to yourself. Tina’s spirit and energy is contagious and ignites an aliveness within that is indescribable."

This sounds amazing!

REST

It’s difficult to let down and let go when you’re juggling work, relationships, family, and parents. 

Lucky for you, your family is safe at home and your worries are not invited to this retreat. 

This is time for YOU, and you, alone: to sleep, read, rest, and relax. 

This is time away from work, distraction, technology, and your to-do list.

Wake up to daily movement and meditation, followed by coffee, a smoothie, or a healthy breakfast by the ocean.

Sun by the pool, take a walk on the beach, book an excursion, read a book, or relax in your bungalow or hammock.  

It’s all about what YOU want to do!

REceive

Perhaps you’ve had a hard time receiving in the past: a compliment, a friend’s concern, help when you really needed it. 

It’s hardwiring a lot of women suffer from. But Superwoman’s an exhausting role, and it’s no fun to feel like a martyr. 

Vulnerability means learning that it’s not weak to ask for support and help when you need it help.

On retreat, through guided meditation, group sessions shared conversations, and the amazing staff, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to practice receiving. 

Treat yourself to an energy session or Relaxation, Deep Tissue, Thai, Swedish, & Chi Nei Tsang massage with one of the amazing therapists at our retreat!

RELEASE

This retreat provides you with a safe space and gentle guidance to help you reflect on your priorities, self-care, and relationships.

When given the opportunity to examine your thoughts and beliefs without bias, you may be surprised to discover that many of them are outdated, limiting, and unnecessary.

Letting go of your old, outdated thoughts and ideas, means being more open-minded and willing to learn and try new things. It also means rising above limited and fearful thinking and behavior.

Removing yourself from the daily distractions helps you to release behaviors and ways of thinking that no longer serve you.

Loosening your attachment to ideas, beliefs, and choices that harm and limit you is empowering.

When we reflect on our lives in the context of what we want in the present, not the past, we can better see and release the habitual patterns we created as children to make sense of the world.

As adults, we can release what no longer serves us while having compassion for our past pain. Loving yourself is accepting the past without letting it define you.

This retreat includes an “Owner’s Manual” with prompts and resources to help you navigate the present, release the past and embrace your amazing future.

REnew

This retreat offers you the tools, support, and soul inspiration to renew and redefine your world, in Mexico and beyond.

You have the power to define your world because ultimately you create it. 

When you learn to be present with your thoughts, words, and habits, you can choose to overcome the fear, fatigue, and apathy that come from denial and distraction.

Self-compassion is a practice that not only heals you but the world you live in.

If you believe you are here for a reason, honoring your purpose is the greatest gift you can give to the world, and yourself. 

You don’t have to be a guru to practice mindfulness. Breathe, move, and play! Mindfulness is not just sitting still.  

LEAVE THE BAGGAGE BEHIND

TO FIND YOUR BLISS IN MEXICO

MOVE

Your retreat includes a variety of choices to move daily including Yoga, Pilates, swimming, walking, hiking, and more.

Moving your body is an investment beyond physical health.  Our bodies are amazingly good to us even when we may not be good to them. 

Making movement a priority is a spiritual practice that connects our soul to our body and our body to the earth.   

What a gift!

 

MeditATE

During most of our waking lives, our minds are engaged in a continuous internal dialogue in which the meaning and emotional associations of one thought trigger the next. Too often these associations are habitually negative.

Meditation is one of the best tools we have to counter the brain’s negativity bias, release accumulated stress, foster positive experiences and intentions, and enjoy the peace of present moment awareness.

This retreat will help you create a personal meditation practice you’ll also crave at home. 

CELEBRATE

The practices you learn on this retreat will help you let go of pent-up resistance, stress, and anxiety.  That means more energy and pleasure for the things that bring you joy!

Who knew you’d love learning to surf, kayak, horseback ride, or snorkel!

Take this opportunity to try a new adventure and see what happens!  It’s not just the activity that matters, but the choice to do something different and fun to celebrate YOU!

Make new life long friends

Studies show that friendships between women have a greater influence on our physical and psychological well-being than family relationships.

Sharing our experiences and challenges helps us provide support, encouragement, and compassion for one another.

When we listen, support, hug, and encourage one another, we release higher levels of oxytocin. Sometimes referred to as the “love” hormone, oxytocin is a neurotransmitter produced in our brain that helps reduce stress and anxiety, boost immunity, and restore calm, clarity, and confidence.

Ask any woman who has ever attended one of our retreats and they’ll all tell you they were not only transformed by the content of the retreat but by the other women there as well.

You will meet women with who you will forever share a special bond.   

Share this experience with your newfound friends or bring your bestie with you for a retreat experience you’ll always remember.

“Incredible women, lots of laughter & lifetime friendships.”

We had plenty of time for fun activities and relaxing on our own time. Deep, transformative conversations, spiritually uplifting, and mindful movement as well. Came away refreshed and inspired.

The Top Five Reasons to go on a Women’s Retreat.

  1. You’ll make new friends for life.
    Women’s retreats are an opportunity to delve deeper into who we are and what we want out of life with the support of some amazing ladies.

    Chances are, the people on your retreat are there for the same reasons you are . . . to take a break, to refresh, recenter and leave with a new sense of purpose. Therefore, they really are the best people you could wish to share this journey with.

  2. Retreats are SO much more than regular vacations.
    While vacations tend to be an outward experience–a time to relax, explore, experience new cultures, and have some downtime-retreats offer an opportunity to take the time to look inwards. They are about using a safe space and like-minded group of people to ask some serious questions about your life and where it may be heading. It’s a time to get real with yourself about what may be holding you back, what your limitations and your fears are and how can you do things differently to benefit you greater.

    When you bring together a group of women to ask these questions and explore this self-inquiry, a unique kind of magic happens.

  3. Retreats give you time for YOU.  
    Busyness is addictive. By the time we fulfill our roles as wife, mother, caretaker, and best friend. we rarely have ANY time for ourselves. So, what do we do?  We get up and do it all over again the next day!

    Why is it that we put so much more love and care into other people than we do for ourselves?

    A retreat is time away from responsibility. . . to look after number one. You deserve it!

  4. Women’s Retreats celebrate the power of femininity.
    For all of history, women have been gathering in sacred spaces to tap into their unique feminine magic. This was not always easy or accepted; women have even been persecuted throughout history for sharing their inherent gifts with the world.

    While we may not suffer as severe consequences today, the pull of patriarchy still subjugates feminine energy for masculine power when it comes to defining success, access, and financial status.

    Surrounding yourself with other smart, successful, and creative women reminds us of the unique power we have women to elevate and heal the world.

  5. Retreats make space to ground in nature. 
    We flow with nature. Many retreats are centered around nature. Whether it is the ocean, a river, or the mountains, when we experience the passionate grace of nature, we are reminded how we can choose to blossom in our own lives.
