Sacred Space

A Journey of Healing

Teotihuacan, Mexico
October 12th-17th, 2023

Purify. Empty. Expand.
Return to yourself as sacred space.

Find your sky. Release your rains. Deepen your earth. And ignite your prayers in the loving embrace of Teotihuacan.

The journey

This is a very special journey of healing

We will be bringing Abuelita’s healing ways into every turn, guiding you into a deep process of transformation— Egg Cleansing, Fire Cleansing, Soul Retrieval, and all the more that Spirit calls for… returning you to the Sacred Space that you are.

And we want to give you the space to do that! We are curating an experience that offers you the freedom to Journey deep— the intimacy of a small group, the sanctuary of a retreat center all to ourselves, AND you each will have private rooms… your own sacred space.

During our days together, our collective intentions will lead us on an unwinding journey through the sacred sites of Teotihuacan —up, under and inside pyramids, temples, and secret sanctuaries— receiving channeled teachings and ceremonies along the way.

Days in Teotihuacan are intensive and full, but we try to give you some downtime (playtime for some, nap time for others) before we gather again in the evenings for Mindful Movement, Sharing Circle, and delicious meals at our Villas home, just steps from the pyramids.

Some light on the highlights…


In alignment with the spiritual death and rebirth process that Teotihuacan invokes, Rebecca will deepen your journey with several shamanic healing tools culminating in a Fire Cleansing— an intensive shamanic ceremony which immerses the recipient in the smoke of medicinal incenses while rubbing an egg, a salt crystal, and herbs on the body which then get burned in a ceremonial fire. The energy will continue to release through the night, readying you as the Sacred Space into which we will then call your soul home in a beautiful Soul Retrieval ceremony.


Embodiment, integration, flow— these are key to sustained healing. Led by Yoga Therapist, Teresa Mock, this daily practice will open you into the sacred space of your body and renew your connection to its inner wisdom.


Rebecca’s long-standing relationship with Teotihuacan’s guardians & shamans allows her to secure us private access to several of the lesser known temples, and a supersecret surprise excursion that is sure to send you to the moon and beyond!


Participants will each receive a special Talisman crafted by a local artist and charged by the energy of our final ceremony. It will carry the medicine that will continue to empower your journey home.


Come together with your retreat family in two Zoom Classes— a pre-journey
preparation and a post-journey integration. We will also create a private online
community for you to share, connect, and post all those fabulous photos!


it is another world…

Imagine walking through an entire city of pyramids and temples built for the purpose of spiritual enlightenment. A chorus of clay whistles fills the air, reverberating off the stone temple in front of you. Its walls tell stories in iron-oxide hues— jaguars, eagles, and butterflies. You close your eyes to take it all in and notice the scent of Copal in the wind and, somewhere in the distance, a ceremonial drum begins its song.

Affectionately called ‘Teo’, it is known as “The Place where human becomes God’ and it was built as a map of spiritual transformation. Its temples and pyramids surround the Avenue of the Dead down which the ancient apprentices would travel, being ‘digested’ by Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent. Perhaps you will feel their prayers in the plazas of the elements, or their songs at the Tree of Life, and come home to yourself, as they did, atop the Pyramid of the Sun.

A mystery school of the ages, Teotihuacán is a powerful container for your transformation through which Rebecca and Teresa will skillfully and respectfully guide you.

Our Home

Villas Campanas

…a place for creativity, contemplation & celebration.

“We have carefully created our small hotel and retreat center for you as a place to feel at home while exploring the energies of the 2000 year old pyramids of Teotihuacan. We welcome all forms of creative expression in our art studio classroom and meditation salon. Our dining room cafe is in one of the oldest houses in the village where you can enjoy its colonial charm while sipping your cappuccino. Our rooftop terrace offers spectacular views of the 18th century church right next door and of the Pyramid of the Sun. Wander through our central serpentine pathway beneath romantic rod-iron balconies and along gardens aromatic with honeysuckle, lavender and roses, and remember that peace lives in your heart and that you can cultivate beauty in your life.” ~Emily & Victor

(Pssst… and they serve delicious authentic meals!)

yOur Guides

Rebecca haywood

At the age of twenty, Rebecca received an undeniable calling to step away from her psychology degree and find a spiritual teacher. This led to a ten-year apprenticeship with a family of Toltec shamans and a profound awakening. Living and working with Madre Sarita and her son, bestselling author don Miguel Ruiz, Rebecca was recognized as Sarita’s spiritual granddaughter and the next mother of her lineage— “La pluma dorada” who would “bring the two together”, her ways with Miguel’s.

True to Abuelita’s predictions, Rebecca opened her private practice in 2001 offering a blend of shamanic healing and spiritual mentoring, and later became a published author featured in two #1 best-sellers, Dancing in the Unknown and Shamanism in the New Millennium.

Rebecca has been guiding groups through Teotihuacan for over twenty years now and embodies a deep connection to the Divine Mother residing within its sacred grounds… “This is where we come home to the womb of our Divine.”

"Rebecca is a clear channel of the Toltec wisdom and also a loving healer. Her message pours through her with the same devotion and love of the divine mother. I definitely encourage you to experience her teachings and her transformative healings."
don Miguel Ruiz

Teresa Mock

Following the call from spirit, Teresa began her apprenticeship with Rebecca in 2010 and was initiated into Madre Sarita’s lineage of healing. Blending elements from yoga therapy and trauma-informed coaching, Teresa brings grounding and grace, reflection and faith.

Over the years, Teresa has explored the mystical through movement, art, sound, indigenous ceremonies, shamanic journeying, and has been working with the energies of Teotihuacán for over 15 years now.

Teresa approaches each day saying Yes to Life! And she loves helping others find theirs.
