Power Light The Big Leap New Years Retreat

With Avelino May Xul, Michele Clark-Dougherty, LSR Team and Katerina Satori

January 25 - 30, 2017

This New Year’s retreat will take you on a journey to lighten your mind, body & soul, physically and metaphorically, through life-altering experiences on the most beautiful beach in the world! Power Light has the elements of a bit more physically active retreat experience, but in ways that are creative!  Whether you’re 18 or 70 years old, our team will help customize this experience so you start off the New Year in nature and moving your body a bit more while setting your intentions and expanding your mind and heart.  Be the deliberate creator of your life!  We ALWAYS try to make it FUN as together we lightens our spirit and detox our minds and bodies!  For this special retreat only, inspirational coach and co-leader Katerina Satori will be joining our LSR Team.  Katerina brings her wisdom and inspiration…. and together with Avelino, Gloria, Michele and the rest of the LSR community, this retreat will stay with you long after your suntan fades.

The weight we create in our heads and carry on our hearts is often reflected on our bodies too. Our LSR team assists and motivates on all levels to help you attain YOUR truest, and powerful potential. We are reminded that the LIGHT is inside of you. If you’re ready to release the excess weight that often makes life feel heavy, “Be Light” or “Power Light” are great choices for your retreat experience.

Your body will love the natural detoxifying waters of the region’s underground sacred cenotes as well as being soothed with natural Mayan clay. The hot coals of the Temazcal ceremony will sweat out impurities like it never happened before. Experience the mystical healing energies of nature, our Shaman, and each other.

Our menu is carefully crafted to detox your body and speed up your metabolism.  The nutritious foods help cleanse, heal, and revitalize your intestinal track and turn your body into an energy-efficient vessel, while we redirect the focus of your thoughts and feelings to be more in alignment with your inner self.

Spend a week with us in paradise and you’ll take away new tools to live a healthier life physically, emotionally, and mentally. Lighten up and shine your most beautiful YOU!
