Hearts Connected ~ Reiki, Yoga & Meditation Retreat / Betsabe Luna, Nicole Lynne Hooley & Nivea Cruz
April 16 - 22, 2022
How is your heart? What does it yearn for? Can you connect to its innate wisdom with ease? What does it say to you?
Travel with us to magnificent Lake Atitlán for an inspiring and unforgettable journey into your heart. When I first laid eyes on Lake Atitlán and her majestic volcanoes, I was awestruck. This place holds beautiful sacred energy that encourages healing, connection, joy and deep transformation, making it the perfect setting for our heart-centered retreat. Through the use of Cacao medicine, reiki, yoga practice, meditation, and group energy work, we will be guided into a space of compassion, unconditional love, and radical self-acceptance.

Nivea is a professional practitioner of Brennan Energy Healing and a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing. As a stage 4 cancer survivor, Nivea believes that her cancer saved her life, because it gave her the opportunity to reinvent every aspect of herself. She feels blessed to have been able to use the tools and techniques she learned at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing as complementary treatments for her own personal healing.
Nivea has been a healer and assisting clients in transforming their lives for over 20 years. Nivea’s healing sessions are profound, powerful and life-changing. She holds space for clients in a loving and nonjudgemental way, encouraging all that needs to be cleared to be released to restore balance, health and harmony.
Nivea believes that curing is the business of medicine, and it involves eliminating symptoms; while healing is the crafting of a healthy life by eliminating the cause of suffering and disease, then creating a meaningful destiny. Hers is the practice of healing.
