About the Event
Retreat to the jungle-ocean paradise of Haramara (“Mother Sea”) and reconnect with your wholeness. This is the time for you: an exploration of your Essential Self through yoga, movement, meditation, music, and connection in nature. Join us for a uniquely curated, transformative experience that will naturally build on itself each day over the course of a week, taking you on a journey of discovery, nourishment, revitalized well-being, and a lot of fun! The retreat is lovingly designed to help you cultivate your presence and bring your whole self to the space —because YOU are what is needed in the world at this time! So what are you waiting for? Jump in, drop in, explore, play, laugh, heal, learn, let go, deepen, connect, and thrive!
Each day we will gather in the elegant, naturally constructed pavilions for morning meditation and yoga, an afternoon workshop, and evening group healing session. There will also be ample free time to peruse the beautiful retreat grounds, enjoy the amazing saltwater infinity pool and hot tub, walk the private beaches, swim in the healing ocean waters, rest deeply, eat delicious meals, and make genuine connections with new and old friends. Optional excursions available at an additional cost.
Using the tools of embodied practices in the setting of our natural environment, we will nourish and strengthen our relationship to our Essential Self through:
- Yoga - Prana Vinyasa, Kundalini, & Restorative yoga
- Movement - Body Centering, Improvisation & Play, Contemplative Movement Practice, Ecstatic Dance
- Meditation - Gentle guidance with breath techniques and Mindfulness
- Music - Sound baths, mantra circles, channeled music and original songs by Dana
- Nature - Ceremony, offerings of appreciation to the Earth, connection to inner and outer nature
The morning yoga and meditation sessions will be calmly paced, allowing for self-observation, inner stillness, and a gentle opening into the beauty of the day. The afternoon workshops will be dynamic, fun, movement-based explorations into the physical, emotional, mental and energetic aspects of our Selves, based on the guiding principles of play, experiential learning, and authentic relating. The evening group healing sessions will offer the opportunity to integrate the day's experiences and bring balance and harmony to the nervous system and body. Sessions include sound healing, mantra circle, group energy reading, and more.
All activities are optional and nothing is mandatory. Come as you are, bring all of you, and discover the joy in following the rhythm of your essential nature. You will be supported and celebrated in all the ways!

ABOUT THE RETREAT VENUE:
Haramara Retreat is an exclusive and intimate seaside yoga resort in the breathtaking coastal Riviera Nayarit, near the fishing village and surfing town of Sayulita, Mexico. Nestled above the Pacific Ocean on 12 private acres of tropical jungle, Haramara provides a beautiful, nourishing and inspiring setting for you to drop in, enjoy, and experience your Essential Self. The magnificent open-air pavilions with high thatched roofs and handcrafted hardwood floors offer 360-degree panoramic views of lush mountains and soothing ocean breezes. Favorite highlights are the pristine private beaches and luxurious saltwater infinity pool that overlooks the Pacific. Haramara's restaurant offers exceptional, creative, local cuisine that includes fresh and delicious, mostly organic gourmet meals, with vegetarian and seafood options.
Accomodations: Spread across the beautiful landscape, Haramara's cabañas are nestled amongst the tropical hills and offer privacy and seclusion, with spectacular views of the ocean and jungle canopy. Enjoy the rustic luxury of these spacious cabañas, which feature comfortable beds with hand woven sheets, gauzy sheer curtains to filter the sunlight and oil lamps and candles for softly lit evenings. Most cabañas have private hammocks for lazy afternoon naps. Each cabaña has its own unique and individually designed private bathroom with hot water and an open-air shower with a view.

What people are saying about Dana:
“I highly recommend Dana with Field of Colors! The energy work that she offers is truly incredible. I've had the pleasure of taking yoga classes with her, having my aura read by her, and also had the opportunity to take a meditation course taught by her. All experiences have been heart-expanding, inspiring and uplifting! The wisdom and kindness Dana offers in her work is something I will forever deeply cherish.” —Lydia Stern
“I would have never imagined these sessions to be as insightful and impactful as they have been. When Dana closes her eyes and begins to tell you what she sees and how she interprets it, it touches a place inside of you that needed to be seen, understood, and healed. Sometimes it’s something you knew deep down inside, but has not come through on a conscious level. These pieces are vitally important to personal growth and transformation… Be prepared to be pleasantly surprised and deeply moved by this experience!” —Monica Mesa
“I found Dana's Meditation of the Roses course to be one of the most powerful meditative experiences I've had. The course totally surpassed my expectations… At the end of each day, I felt more light, peaceful and at ease in myself. Dana holds space with such grace and compassion, creating a safe and supportive environment for the facilitation of deep emotional and spiritual healing. This course is a gift!” —Harpremjeet Kaur
“I loved my reading with Dana!!! I went into the session with no idea what I was getting into, and I’d never met her before! Dana was very intuitive while reading my aura, and brought up so much that I needed to hear. She was thoughtful, articulate, sensitive, grounded, and gave me so much clarity on the topics that were needing attention in my life. I would absolutely recommend her to all of my people!” —Alex Simon
"Dana is one of those rare souls that shines so bright and pure you can’t help but notice and be drawn in to the light! I went to her for my first Aura Reading years ago and within minutes had chills from her abilities, literally! She has a way, unlike any other healer I’ve come across, to put subtle longings of the heart into words, to ground dreams floating around in the ethers onto this plane, making it something you can touch, hold, and contemplate. I have been back whenever I can, and have learned to take copious notes to meditate on the insights she shares. I would whole-heartedly recommend that anyone who is looking for personal growth, healing, insight, encouragement, or affirmation to seek out some time with Dana for an Aura Reading as she is a potent resource. She is also a competent and enthusiastic Kundalini Yoga teacher who can bless you with her knowledge, ability to teach in multiple languages and instruments she plays!" —Kósa István
