Retreat ~ Heal ~ Renew

Yoga | Meditation | Healing | Maya Spiritual Bathing

NOVEMBER 7th - 13th

There are moments when we need to shed our regular routines and take a hero’s journey to discover what our hearts hold sacred, and how to imbue our lives with the meaning and satisfaction that emerges from that knowledge. Join yoga therapist Yael Flusberg & spiritual intuitive Amanda Rieger Green as they hold sacred and safe space for you on this week-long journey, nestled in the mystical Belize rainforest, the heart of the ancient Maya.


Chaa Creek is an award-winning 400-acre nature reserve along the banks of the Macal River in the foothills of the Maya Mountains. This unique eco-healing retreat and Mayan rainforest immersion will offer you space to tap into your innate wisdom, make life-long connections, and engage in sustainable tourism. Part of your retreat fee supports local community and environmental initiatives.

“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.”  ― Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder
