Mystical Mother Painting Pilgrimage - Aug. 28-Sept. 3 in Teotihuacan, Mexico

Join us! Contact for details and registration. 

We hope you'll join us for the inaugural retreat of Villa Las Campanas, Emily's very own creativity-based inn & retreat center in the village of San Sebastian Xolalpa in Teotihuacan!


I have been following a mission for over 20 years to help raise awareness of the presence of the Divine Feminine in our lives in all of Her aspects through contemplation and creation of Her Image. In a new chapter of deepening the mission, I am excited to offer this retreat, a Painting Pilgrimage, to you. In a dedicated circle of sisters, praying together and unifying our vision, we will explore how to strengthen our connection to the Divine Mother through the creative act of painting Her image according to our own imagination and intuition, and through the lense of our own personal sense of mysticism. No previous art experience is required! Every step will be gently guided.

Why come to Mexico? Because the Virgin of Guadalupe, whose Basilica we will be visiting at the site where She appeared 500 years ago, is a powerful patroness for our time together! While we will be held by Guadalupe's energies in our circle, this experience is open to women of all traditions and faiths, with the sole requirement that you come with an open mind and open heart, ready to explore the mystical messages found at the crossroads of all paths. The mission of this retreat is to build bridges and find connection, to dream into Her mystery through meditation and prayer, to look for union wherever we find duality and separation, to discover ourselves held in the arms of our Mystical Mother.
This journey is an invitation to touch the authentic reverence that lives in your heart and to pour your prayers into a devotional image of the Divine Mother that will illuminate Her presence for your life's path of connection.


I am excited to present our guest teacher, Rosamaria Polidura, a fellow Intentional Creativity teacher and a native of Mexico City, who will be sharing teachings from her exploration of the Four Petal Flower, a symbol that has served as a compass for life since Teotihuacano times and appears on the Virgin of Guadalupe's pregnant belly.
