Holistic Wellness

Luna Rising is a safe space where you can unplug and be in the present moment. Get back in touch with yourself through daily yoga and meditation, which will help you to restore clarity of your mind and heart. We invite you to embrace holistic Mayan-inspired therapies, dine on cuisine that is plant-based— vibrant and alive with nutrition, and get relaxed and grounded so that you return home at peace and feeling rejuvenated in your mind, body and spirit.

Ancient Healing Ceremonies

Rooted in Mayan tradition, explore the healing properties of cacao, sound healing and connecting with the feminine energy of the Pink Full Moon and Mother Earth. Let go of the past, heal emotional pain, and connect with your higher self. Luna Rising ceremonies are designed to provide you with gentle and loving support to transmute your energy so you can become more self-aware of your inherent power, and enjoy more fulfillment in your daily life.



Specially designed for women looking to renew or deepen their connection to other women, and by extension themselves. The myth that women cannot live and work closely together or get along is a false, fast-fading narrative. Align with other women who feel the call to connect. Create communal bonds that will help you find your place as a woman, with other women by your side. Get the sisterly support that you need while activating your consciousness— come celebrate and take your place in the rise of the Divine Feminine.
