Xinalani Eco Resort, Puerto Vallarta Mexico, June 2-7, 2017

Imagine the sound of jungle birds slowly coming into tune. The silence of sleep melts away and is delicately replaced by the high notes of songbirds and the gentle distant roar of surf, lapping against the sand and rocks just down the hill from where you sleep. The dawn light begins to turn the gauze canopy hanging over your luxurious bed from dark to pale and then white. Perfect, heavy cotton sheets are wrapped around your body and the only other thing pressed against your skin is your loving spouse, still embracing you warmly from the night before. The day ahead of you holds only holds one thing, deep connection with your lover.

If you’re dreaming of a deeply connecting & Sexy experience full of rest, renewal, delight, and new insights the Romance & Adventure Sutras Mexico Retreat is definitely for YOU & Your Love...

 

Time to Rest

Life is busy.

Rest is sexy.

We are of the belief that time together in a hammock can do more for your relationship than reading every single marriage book on Amazon.

Imagine this feeling: It's late in the afternoon and you and your love have no where to be but here, nothing to do but share one another's presence.  You gently sway with the ocean breeze and above you the dreamy sky is framed with palm fronds.

time to renew

Playing in the waves like you are 16 again.

Playing footsie in the water.

Snorkeling and chasing the angel fish.

Reenacting your own scene from James Bond.

The sea has healing qualities. It wakes us up to the present moment. It reminds us to feel and to play.

TIMe to delight all the senses

Fall in love and dream again as you restore and renew your mind, body, heart and soul. Let the Spirit breathe new life in you and reawaken romance and adventure and gratitude for your life.

We come to slow down, renew our faith, receive and abide in love. 

In our yoga practice will dive deeper on our mats every morning with a breath-centered, Spirit-lead vinyasa practice and end with a short but deep time for contemplative prayer/mediation. Morgan brings her faith in Christ as well as her training in Tantra to her yoga mat and uses both scripture and poetry to deepen the practice.

Time to Make love and add new tools to your tender-loving toolbox.

The afternoons will be open for you to swim (how about with wild dolphins?)snorkelsurfhike, treat yourself to a spa treatment, nap in a hammock, listen to the sounds of the jungle and hear new thoughts from God.  At the end the day before dinner, we will meet to work through the R&A Sutras Foundationals, where we will discuss real ways to deepen your connection, by regaining trust and intimacy.  This is practical and fun, easy to approach sexual advice with a fun discussion where we talk about the silly ways we've gotten to where we are. This is a huge opportunity to up your A-game in the bedroom with our celebrated material, The Romance & Adventure Sutras. 

Afterwards, we will come together to share a delicious meal and have fun and candid converse about what it looks like to create a life of true romance and meaningful adventure.
