We specifically chose these dates so that we could start the retreat immediately following the powerful Leap Day, February 29th.
The leap year holds a special significance and we will hold a gathering and celebration on the first night of the retreat to tap into the energy that will be available for all of us at this time of year.
Here's a little bit about the spiritual significance of Leap Day, from ForeverConscious.com.
When 11 (29th) and 2 (February) come together, their energy forms to create a powerful time for love, healing and teaching. In fact, these numbers represent the arrival of the spiritual light messenger and it is likely that if we are open and aware, we may receive some guidance on our path moving forward.
Many numerologists also believe that because the 29th of February is such a rare vibration, it causes a type of ripple effect within us.
This ripple almost creates an opportunity for us to “leap” forward in this moment in time and play catch up in our own lives.

The days following February 29 are almost like walking through a rare portal that is only accessible to us every four years.
There is also a lot of other documentation available on this topic if it's something you are interested in learning more about.
In short, this retreat is being held during one of the most powerful weeks of the year for healing.
Here's what we know for sure: the timing of Eat, Play, Love will create an extremely powerful way for us to begin our time together and to support each other in creating lasting transformation.
We often talk a good game about wanting to unconditionally love ourselves but life’s distractions and old habits always seem to get in the way.
This is a time solely dedicated to cultivating new ways to treat yourself like the precious and unique woman you really are.
You will eat like you love yourself, move like you love yourself, let yourself play and relax in the lap of luxury and be cheered on by a community of new and life-long friends.
Here's some information about the event and where we will be staying.
The price of your ticket to this retreat includes all event workshops, activities and excursions, your accomodations, and beautifully prepared gluten-free meals (brunch and dinner) for the entirety of your stay.
All villas include a full kitchen as well, so you are welcome to keep any other food, snacks, or drinks you would like to have on hand in your villa.
The pricing is based on whether you prefer single occupancy (your own room) or double occupancy (to share your room with 1 other woman. In the double occupancy rooms, each woman will have her own bed).
Single and double occupancy rooms are available on first come, first serve basis. Once the rooms for either of these choices are sold out, that option will no longer be available for purchase on this page.
The village of Troncones is said to be one of Mexico’s most beautiful hidden gems. Come and experience all the natural beauty of this authentic ocean side town and be met and pampered by its many friendly locals.
Here's some footage of Troncones and the Villas where the retreat will be hosted.
This event is being hosted by Linda Leland and Amy Starr Allen.
Linda and Amy are the cofounders of 'And Then She Shines', a platform that supports women of all ages, races, and body types, to live fully self expressed lives full of joy instead of judgement.
Linda and Amy are committed to helping women who want to live beyond the constraints of the inner critic and the one-size-fits all stereotype we've been taught and become part of a movement for positive change in the world and for our daughters.
They focus on topics such as freedom from dieting, body image issues, self empowerment, radical and shameless self acceptance, parenting, inner peace and joy, and the courage and vulnerability it takes to live your happiest and most abundant life by becoming more and more of yourself.
They have created a community for all women who are ready to rise above and be who they came here to be and to feel the support and thunderous applause of a world-wide community of other women who are ready to do the same.
