At Haramara Resort, Mexico
Co-Facilitated by Dr. Marie Rodriguez and Liana Brooks-Rubin
April 3-10, 2021
The intention of our yoga and energy healing retreat is to support and empower you on your healing journey. You might crave replenishment and renewal or you might have a specific intention or desire to create a change in your life. Long-time friends and colleagues, Dr. Marie Rodriguez and Liana Brooks-Rubin are joining forces to co-facilitate a yoga and energy healing retreat for women. We will create a warm, safe, and supportive environment for you to become deeply grounded and cultivate your inner calm and resilience. You will be guided through yoga and energy healing sessions to clear past residue and support optimal alignment with your present–so that you have the capacity to flow into your future with greater ease and awareness.
Dr. Marie happened upon the perfect spot over a year ago when she did a personal retreat at Haramara and so we reserved this special place for a week-long retreat from November 14-21, 2020. Haramara resort is located outside of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico near the neighboring town of Sayulita. It is set on a lush hillside overlooking the ocean. It is a beautiful eco-luxury resort and the only place Dr. Marie has ever visited where she said to herself: “I have to come back!”.
The land at Haramara is special – it is sacred land previously occupied by the local Huichol tribe. The owner of Haramara built the resort with the intention of keeping the native vibe fully intact. It is the perfect place to unplug – all of the open air cabanas are spaced far apart, so you feel fully immersed in the terrain, and electricity is limited to the main dining and pool areas. A visit to this land is deeply healing in and of itself.
Together, we will experience:
- twice daily yoga at your level and pace
- guided breathwork, meditation, and chakra clearing
- group energy work for healing and renewal
- rituals for transformation of energy and patterns
- one individual session combining acupuncture and energy work
We will also have opportunities for:
- spa treatments provided by local practitioners
- temezcal (Aztec sweat lodge)
- walks into the neighboring town of Sayulita
- relaxation on the land, in or near the sea
Who We Are:
We are both alternative medicine and healing professionals practicing in Washington, D.C. We fervently believe in the body’s innate capacity to heal from physical, mental, emotional and spiritual disharmony and are passionate about helping others gain access to their own healing power. We met almost 20 years ago at a yoga studio and have continued to build on that initial connection through our friendship, respective healing journeys, and professional paths. We are very excited to be collaborating together on our first of what we hope will be many retreats!
Dr. Marie has been in naturopathic medicine practice since 2002, and has over 15 years experience as a craniosacral practitioner. As a fervent seeker and forever student, Dr. Marie’s personal healing journey inspired her to study a myriad of energetic healing modalities. She has extensive shamanic training, has been a long-time meditation practitioner, is a family constellation facilitator and is recently certified in past life regression.
Dr. Marie recognizes that the physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual aspects of our human experience are all highly intertwined. She skillfully weaves the contents of her eclectic medicine bag to support people wherever they are on their own healing journey.
Liana Brooks-Rubin is nationally certified as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine. She is a licensed acupuncturist, practitioner of Chinese Herbal Medicine, and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-500).
