Malinalco is considered to be the location of one of three main points of energy in Mexico. Malinalco’s energy, in particular, is linked to a creative feminine energy. We will arrive following the same route taken by ancient warriors, by way of Chalma, who came to Malinalco to engage in important spiritual work. Malinalco is known to have a unique energy unlike anywhere else. We cannot think of a better context for us to help others reconnect with their creativity. Space is limited to a maximum of 15 participants.

We each love writing and have experienced the power of writing retreats for our own projects in the past. Several of our colleagues have asked us to host such a retreat over the years, and we're excited to be doing just that! Our focus is on helping professionals in the mental health fields get their writing projects off the ground
