The retreat will take place at the gorgeous beachfront resort of Maya Tulum where ancient Mayan culture and its healing powers are both revered and celebrated.
Each day's schedule will vary slightly. You are invited to trust the unfolding and release the need to know exactly what is happening next. Let it be an adventure!
You will meet daily to meditate, write, talk, dance, laugh, cry, play, and create. You will get still. Really still. And in that stillness, you will be able to hear the deepest truths within you. They are there waiting for your willingness to hear and honor them.
You will dance. Madly and with reckless abandon. You will move your bodies through the trauma, the grief, the pain, and into exquisite joy and lightness of being. It will be nothing short of divine.
You will see each other and you will meet yourself in a whole new way. Your beauty, your strength, your sensuality, and your courage. You will fall in love with the woman in the mirror. Together, you will explore, discover, release, and celebrate; and you will experience newfound freedom to move and be in the world.

Check with your cellular service provider to see if your cell phone will function in Mexico and arrange service in advance. Wireless internet is available in the restaurant and at the front desk reception area. There is also a computer with internet access available for use at the front desk.
Two guest phones are available at the front desk for outgoing calls. Do not pre-purchase telephone cards as they will not function at the hotel. One phone works for 8 USD, which you can purchase at the front desk. This buys you eight minutes to call the USA and Canada. The resort also has a mobile phone that charges 2 USD per minute. The hotel has one phone for incoming calls for the entire facility, so please use it only for emergencies.

The resort accepts US dollars, Mexican pesos, and Euros. Your change is always given in pesos. To get the best rate, change currency at a bank, not the airport. There are five ATM machines and two banks in the town of Tulum, which is three and a half miles away. Maya Tulum accepts Visa, MC, and AMEX.

"Ashlie has a great inclusive teaching style. I came to the retreat basically because I am a yes to anything Ashlie does but I got so much more and I was turned upside down. I learned a lot about being still for a minute and listening to your inner voice, which opened up my heart and the possibility to experience exquisite joy. I highly recommend any retreat that Ashlie is a part of, because she will hold a space for you. Maybe, even one you won’t hold for yourself."

"I have worked with Ashlie in a number of different ways. She has photographed my dogs, I have worked one-on-one with her as a student and as a participant at a retreat in Marble falls. The retreat, in particular, was an extraordinary experience. She has a talent of making everyone feel included no matter their level of experience. Our group ranged from total novices with only an iPhone camera to a professional photographer and all levels of experience in between. All of us felt very included and never felt like we didn’t belong. The skills I learned and the access to my creativity I gained will have me participate in anything she has to offer. Her teaching style is very gentle and loving. I never felt overwhelmed and always felt I was exactly where I needed to be."
