Ximena Morales is a true dreamweaver and I was fortunate enough to be one of those participating in her women’s retreat this past April. Whether you’re looking to connect more to yourself, to source, to the divine, or learn more about the ways of medicine, I cannot recommend this retreat center enough! Casa del Sol is situated in the most majestic of backdrops ideal for connecting to self and Pachamama. The retreat center has all the comfortable amenities you might need, not to mention the serene environment it is nestled in.
I had the pleasure of meeting Ximena and her and her husband Santiago some years back and when first hearing of this upcoming retreat, I knew I had to be there. From the moment I showed interest, Ximena was very diligent in sending me all of the information I needed and answering every question that came up. She is kind, thoughtful, and a beautiful teacher to begin learning the ways of the sacred medicine. It was an absolute privilege to spend the two weeks with her, women from all walks of life, and the skilled and devoted healers and shamans who taught us so much about the medicine and ourselves. This retreat was not only life changing, but life affirming and I’m a better version of myself, my true self, after having completed it. There is just not enough I could say about this retreat center, Ximena and Santiago, their community of healers, and the divine connection they have to that mountain and great spirit. I’m sure this is the beginning of a lifelong connection with Casa del Sol.
