The Abrazarse Life Retreat Center and Bed & Breakfast has arisen as part of my intention to live my ideal life. Abrazarse means to embrace or hug. Here at Abrazarse Life we want you to have a special experience that allows you embrace life.
I am originally Canadian and in 2009 I went on an adventure to Belize and wrote my book Divine Divorce, How To Make A Great Adventure Out Of The Worst Disaster Of Your Life.
From Belize, the Universe provided the inspiration and resources to bring me to this lovely, quiet, safe, Mexican town on the shores of the gulf of Mexico. Abrazarse Life is my home, my office and a business which I share with those who stay here.
For the past 15 years I have dedicated myself to learning how to find and live my best possible life. The retreat center is the result of a clear intention, to host people for Purposeful Vacations - be it leadership development, recovering from divorce, finding your ideal life or regaining physical mobility and health.
When we are not hosting a retreat, we love to host people who are on vacation.
