Rest Reset Restore Retreat
Isla Mujeres, Mexico
October 17 - 22, 2024

A luxurious, oceanfront retreat to replenish the body, mind, and spirit and establish daily practices of self-care, mindfulness, movement, and manifestation.


Escape to a luxurious, self-care sanctuary on the peaceful shores of Isla Mujeres, a short ferry ride from Cancun, Mexico.

Nestled within the idyllic beauty of this small, Mexican island, this restorative retreat offers the opportunity for Black women over 40 to take a break from hyper-productivity, to shut down the electronics and external noises, and go inward.

Led by your hosts and wellness coaches, Ewunike and Nona, this transformative journey unfolds in a private luxury villa with 5-star service, ensuring that every aspect of your experience is nothing short of exceptional.

This retreat will cater to Black women who are seeking restoration and renewal. They are ready to break the habit of putting themselves last and will take charge of their own well-being. They embrace change, invest in themselves and value the healing power of nature and sisterhood.

Our sisters will leave the retreat restored with renewed energy and a reawakened sense of the possibilities for the next part of their journey. They will be empowered with new, healthy practices, habits and tools, and prepared to set boundaries and make space for their personal growth and development. They will cherish the connections made and feel the support of their new sisters who are on the same journey.

Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres, a gem where the Gulf of Mexico caresses the Caribbean Sea, carries a legacy that stretches back over 1,500 years. This enchanting island, once part of the ancient Mayan province of Ekab, served as a revered sanctuary dedicated to Ixchel, the goddess of the moon, fertility, medicine, and happiness. The southern tip of Isla Mujeres, graced with a temple that doubled as a lighthouse, was a place of pilgrimage for those seeking the goddess’s blessings in childbirth and healing. Today, Isla Mujeres stands as a testament to its rich history, a serene retreat that continues to embody the spirit of rejuvenation and joy.
