About This Center

Located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, Troncones is a small quiet beachfront town where the pelicans, butterflys, iguanas and waves surround and embrace you. Casa Firefly is a cozy villa on a rock free sandy beach where you can walk for miles and not see another soul. The roar of the waves, the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, the warm cooling breeze, all make it the most amazing murturing place to cleanse. You'll have your own beachfront bungalow and enjoy  our lap pool, yoga deck and comfortable lounging options under the palms where you can relax and remember who you really are.

Your body is a sacred temple. The way you feed it can be a spiritual practice, a matter of practical necessity or a way to abuse yourself. Which do you choose?

My journey with food includes bulimia, weight loss dieting, emotional eating and overeating, vegetarianism, cleansing/detoxing diet, raw food diet, semi vegetariansm with periods of raw and generally just listening to my body and eating when and what and how much it genuinely craves to feel good, healthy and conscious! (This last eating style being the most recent!)

I have touched and fondled so many ways of relating to food it makes me dizzy.

I grew up in a home where food was the way we gathered and communicated (sound familiar?). Where heated topics were discussed, where I zoned out because I couldn’t relate or chose not to, where weight was an obsession and eating always made me feel guilty because of how “fat” I was.

Food was a way to escape, a way to emotionally satisfy hurts and shame, a way to deny and punish myself.

My journey with food is a radically different experience now. Today, I use food to celebrate my life, to affirm my self worth and to connect to the vital beauty and blessings of our amazing planet.

Cleansing is a spiritual practice. It’s a way of connecting with the wise, self-honoring, earth priestess/priest that lives inside every human being.

You can move into a more conscious relationship with food, your body, your self and it will dynamically and divinely change your life. I’m here to help you do that!

Spend a week with me in paradise releasing, renewing replenishing.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl
