The Venue

The secret is out about Tulum. It has become a favored destination for travelers who cringe at the splashy resorts found in Cancun.

Picture idyllic beaches, charming cabanas, and ancient Maya ruins perched on a cliff overlooking the turquoise sea — all without a mega-development in sight.

We will be staying at Mil Encantos Tulum, a private villa nestled among mangrove forests and lagoons. The beautiful, unspoiled beaches of Tulum are less than a mile away, and you can walk to the charming downtown Tulum Pueblo, where you’ll find dozens of restaurants, internet cafes, and bars offering live music and dancing.

Our charming proprietress, Katalina, fell in love with Tulum and moved there forty years ago. She took a plot of jungle land and built the center with a vision to create a sacred place for healing and transformation.

Long before the eco-tourism movement, Katalina chose to use reclaimed wood, stone, and beautiful hand-crafted mosaic tiles as her building materials. Each little interconnected “apartment” has a sleeping space, bathroom, kitchen, and patio or balcony where you can enjoy the jungle foliage and listen to the birds in the trees.

The place has a funky, tropical vibe, with mosaics, dream-catchers, and artwork in every nook and cranny. Like most places in Tulum, there is no air conditioning, but there are windows everywhere to catch the tropical breezes.

Katalina and her sister Gabriella are gourmet cooks who use native herbs, fruits, and vegetables to create their delicious concoctions. We will be enjoying their homemade breakfasts and lunches every day, and I guarantee you are in for a treat.

We will spend about 3-4 hours each day envisioning our next move. That leaves plenty of time for relaxation and exploring the natural wonders of Tulum! There is really something for everyone here. Unspoiled beaches, cenotes (sacred pools) for diving and swimming, a biosphere reserve of mangrove forests and wetlands with pristine coral reefs, and a funky little town where you can shop to bring back the best of Mexican and Mayan artifacts.

Who is this retreat for?

We created this retreat for people who feel on the verge of a new relationship with their creativity, livelihood, and way of being in the world. It is for people who are ready to give up safety and go for their dreams. It is for people who believe in the power of community and are looking for a tribe where they belong. It is for people who believe that the consciousness of our planet is changing and want to be part of that change.

We are seeking to build a community of like-minded people who will use their gifts to create a legacy for the next generation. The world needs more beautiful poems and transcendent art. Kids, animals, and the planet need healing. Nations need peacemakers. We have been on this planet for long enough to accumulate the knowledge, wisdom, and experience. I believe now is our time to use them to make a difference.

What will we be doing?

Spending time in a small community of like-minded people exploring where to go next with our lives.

Eating delicious, home-cooked Mexican food on our private patio surrounded by mangrove trees.

Meditating, dancing, and engaging in rituals to open up our connection to our inner knowing.  (You already have all the answers, you just need to get in touch with your intuition, your inner guidance system to your next right move.)

Having deep conversations that help us connect and cultivate a new way of being.

Renewing our spirits by exploring the natural beauty and wonders of Tulum and the Costa Maya.

“Laurie Morin has a way with words…and people. I have been working with her for over a year to better manage personal and professional challenges facing me. Always with kindness and the utmost respect, Laurie Morin has provided me with tools and techniques that I can access daily. Through her gentle guidance and keen listening, she has encouraged me to embrace new ways of thinking and shed old behaviors that no longer serve me well.

I strongly recommend her life-changing coaching services and strategies.”

The Delights

We have lined up some amazing excursions to rekindle your passion and renew your sense of wonder. Katalina and Gabriella are multi-talented, and they are connected with everybody in Tulum.  No prepackaged touristy sights for us!

Of course we will visit the famous Tulum ruins, the only Maya seaside temple which scholars believe has one of the highest energy vibrations on the planet.  We will also take a guided tour of the ruins in the jungle of Coba, where you can climb the second-highest Mayan pyramid.  On our way back to Tulum, we will stop for a swim in a secluded cenote — an underground pool of shimmering blue water.

Our day trip to Muyil will include a lagoon boat tour that will give us access to several otherwise inaccessbile ruins.  Muyil is one of the oldest archeological sites in the Maya, and one of the most unspoiled. Of course, no lagoon tour would be complete without a swim in the beautiful clear blue waters.  Our excursions will include a delicious picnic lunch with plenty of juices, water and beer to stay hydrated.

We are also privileged to participate in a traditional Mayan ceremony on the beach or other sacred site. If the stars work out right, we might also get a visit from a traditional Mayan medicine man.

On a personal note, I just got back from a scouting expedition to Tulum, and I can’t wait to return.  In just three short days, I felt a strong connection to the people, the culture, and the energy of the place. It really is magical in a way that is hard to describe.

So what can you expect if you spend 6 nights and 5 days masterminding and enjoying yourself on a transformational adventure to Tulum?

Well, what if you got insanely inspired to create the most outrageously fulfilling plan for the next chapter of your life?

And what if you left with a 30-day blueprint for your first Passion Project to set you on your new path?

Would that be worth coming to Tulum for?

I sure think so. Plus you get to hang out with really cool people in a funky beach town during the dead of Winter in most of the U.S.
