This last June we had our annual summer Teotihuacan retreat. Here is a recap and some pictures of our wonderful time together, but first we would like to share with you what Raven's experience was, as a first time participant to any of our retreats.

"I knew that going to Teotihuacan was going to be a wonderful experience but I really didn't plan on it being as transformational as it was. I was giddy, excited, and full of stories I'd created about how the trip was going to progress. What I received was a journey of love. Literally the first day we go through lessons that break down those layers of fear, resentment, uncertainty and over the course of our time together we are able to rebuild ourselves into loving beings free of judgement and full of self love. I've been an avid reader of the knowledge The Ruiz family shares through their books, Facebook, and YouTube. However, my journey was pushed to the forefront when I traveled to Teotihuacan. Prior to this journey, I "spoke" of living The Four Agreements. Now I have the tools to quiet my mind, to recreate my story, and to live a full life filled with love. " -Raven Baca

Our first exercise on the pyramid grounds.  This is what we call the Island of Safety.

When you are ready to let go, of what you need to get rid off, you step down and walk away.

Tetitla. A magical place to reflect and be at peace.

We had a funny encounter with a dog that wouldn't let go of Rosa, a participant of the retreat.
