Haramara Retreat Centre, Sayulita, Mexico
It’s time to awaken your Heart Warrior and claim your Radiance
The Great Emptying Out Women’s Retreats have been running for four years in New Zealand, creating a tribe of awakened heart warriors through retreats in Taupō, Wanaka, Taranaki, Auckland, and now, Mexico.
Are you ready to evolve? Join this community of women and release that which no longer serves you – old beliefs, behaviour patterns, traumas, conditioning and fears.
We’ll begin with an Opening Ceremony at 5pm on Sunday September 29, before enjoying a fine dining dinner in the restaurant. After dinner we’ll rest and restore with yin yoga designed to release the stresses of travel.
The next four days will consist of early morning meditation overlooking the jungle, sessions in the open-aired yoga shalas, beautiful meals, swimming in the infinity pool, excursions down to the beach, body treatments from the onsite healers, laughter, joy, tears, releasing and connection.
It’s the perfect opportunity to empty out everything that no longer serves.
On the final day, we’ll have a Closing Ceremony before our final meal in the restaurant – a beautiful brunch. And at 11am on Friday October 4, it’s last photos, hugs and goodbye!
This is an opportunity to do deep healing work on land with potent energies, while being held in the lap of luxury.
During the day there will be plenty of downtime to chill by the pool, head down to Haramara’s private beach, get a massage or simply sit and enjoy views of the native and untouched tropical vegetation that surrounds the retreat centre.
Evenings will be a time for socialising and vibing with the tribe in organised and casual gatherings.

Start each day with a guided meditation practice designed to relax your body and focus your mind, leaving you clear, calm, centred and on-point.
After breakfast, we dive into session work for the morning, identifying and releasing that which no longer serves. We’ll work in Circle, sharing what’s coming up, and use the tools of yoga to energetically, emotionally and physically move things through our bodies. The yoga is focused on intimacy with breath and energetic flow. Expect a combination of postures, breath-work, visualisation and fun.
Enjoy a delicious vegetarian gourmet lunch served in the spacious open air dining room with spectacular views that overlook the jungle and the ocean. All meals are tastefully prepared with fresh local ingredients and beautifully served with artistic presentations.
After lunch, we’ll finish our circle work, which often include energetic healings and deep trauma releases expertly guided by Kara-Leah. And yes, sometimes this includes past life healings too.
You will leave this retreat with a deep understanding of what it means to be an awakened heart warrior, and connected with a community of women ready to support you in that journey.
