With Kathryn Hocking

Alaya, Tulum, Mexico
August 13th-17th 2023

In this expansive experience, we’ll connect, slow down and tune into our soul longings as well as learn embodied astrology techniques.

We’ll gather in a sacred circle for ceremonies, workshops, and connection.

We’ll experience the divine feminine energy that is Tulum and experience the local culture and environment.

You’ll leave this experience with greater calm, focus, knowledge, and inspiration. 



An opportunity to connect in-person with beautiful astrogoddesses and develop life-long relationships and potential collaborations or ongoing support networks.



You’ll receive ample time for a sleep-in or morning swim or yoga and time in the afternoon to nap, relax by the pool, or go exploring.

We won’t overschedule you!



Through deliberate embodied astrology practices we’ll deepen our connection with astrology and our natal chart and you'll gain so much clarity about where you want to head in your business and life.

We’ll have have a team to support your experience and help ensure all the logistics flow as planned.

The FLOW of the retreat



Arrive the Sunday afternoon before the first full day, settle into your room and relax or explore before we meet for our first circle where we'll explore our synastry charts for this retreat followed by a shared dinner.



From the first evening, we’ll bond as like-minded women. Over oracle cards, circle shares, astrology practices, and delicious food we’ll build this connection.



We’ll create a supportive and safe environment to allow you to slow down and open up, sharing whatever is present with you in the moment and helping you move through whatever comes up.



We’ll add some additional astrology tools and techniques to our toolkit that we can bring into our own retreats, workshops, or courses.



We’ll invoke our most aligned vision for how we want to be seen, heard, and recognised at the Leo New Moon.



We’ll provide you with opportunities to explore be it the gorgeous beaches, shopping, visiting a cenote, or join a trip to Chichen Itza or the Tulum ruins.



There will be daily free time to get a massage, have a nap, swim in the sea or read a book.



We'll finish with a closing circle to set our intentions and ground our energy before integrating back into our lives.

Tulum, A port to Beauty and Mindfulness

Located on the southern tip of the Riviera Maya, Mexico’s most stylish beach destination offers both privacy and a diversity of things to do.



Our retreat will be held in an Enchanting Oasis In The Heart Of Tulum

Nestled amongst the jungle trees and steps away from the beach, Alaya Tulum is the most enchanting hotel. With intimate social spaces, treehouse guest rooms, and a beautiful Yoga shala, Alaya is perfect for those looking for a quiet oasis in the heart of Tulum’s beach.

Ideal for yoga and wellness retreats, guests can enjoy private beach access and wellness activities that promote inner peace. Sleep well in villas inspired by the raw natural beauty of Tulum and awaken to views of the crystal-blue ocean.

We will gather in the gorgeous yoga shala each day for circle.



Alaya’s rooms range from garden views to ocean views. We have reserved a variety of rooms that are offered on a first comes basis.

Regardless of the room you choose, they’re all clean and comfortable with beautiful details, a serene feel, and in an absolutely gorgeous setting.

If you would like to share a room with someone please get in touch as we’ll do our best to match you up.

why go on retreat with me?

I'm so excited that we are finally beyond the "covid years" and Jupiter in Capricorn and we can travel freely again!

I always wanted to include a retreat as part of the astrology certification and I'm so excited to meet as many students in person as possible.

I've been running retreats for many years around Australia and I have traveled on retreat to Tulum (twice!), Santa Fe, San Francisco, Bali, and Italy.

I understand how to perfectly balance connection, rest and relaxation, and learning into a beautiful retreat experience.

You can opt to share a room with a fellow sister or have a room all to yourself.

Who is it for?

This retreat is a fun, soulful and adventurous intimate gathering of astrophiles.

We have space for up to 15 women and I promise you that the retreat will have a feeling of connection, relaxation, inspiration, adventure, and fun.

I’m an introvert who finds attending events where I don’t know people a little daunting - so don’t worry I’ve got your back and myself and my team will make sure you feel included and supported.

I’ve built in time for morning lie-ins, afternoon naps, and the choice to pick and choose certain activities.

  • You’re totally excited by the prospect of an excuse to travel, relax and indulge your senses with like-minded women
  • You are ready to take your astrology experience to the next level and feel it in your body
  • You feel totally vibed about lazy mornings, inspiring daytime learning, spending the afternoon relaxing or adventuring followed by a delicious dinner, going to bed early or staying up late having soul led conversations.
  • You’d love to learn about Mayan astrology practices
  • You’re wanting and willing to stretch out of your comfort zone to grow.
  • You’ll bring your caring nature, enthusiasm, and optimism to co-create a beautiful experience for all.
  • You absolutely love the idea of being with other amazing, soulful astrology lovers.
  • You’re over age 18 and identify as a woman

What are Mexico's Covid Requirements?

International travel to Mexico is currently permitted. There are currently no requirements in place, such as quarantine or health testing.

Other medical measures

All passengers are subject to health screening on arrival, such as temperature checks and visual assessment. Further health testing may be required for those displaying symptoms of COVID-19.


We of course hope that this doesn’t happen. In the event that it does, we will notify everyone who has signed up for the retreat and provide any updates. In this event, a change of dates could be necessary and so travel insurance is necessary.



Partners and children can come but we ask that you understand that they are not able to attend retreat activities, excursions, or meals. 

Although it may not always be possible to get time away from our kids I do recommend that you gift yourself this time and space alone, it might feel a bit scary or even a bit selfish but it will pay off exponentially. 

If you bring family members, please be prepared to spend most of your time during the retreat NOT with them 

Before 12th May 2022

If you need to cancel for any reason we will refund you the amount paid minus a 20% deposit fee if you cancel before 12th May 2022.

13th May - 12th July

If you need to cancel between 13th May-12th July you will receive a 50% refund.

From 12th July 2023 

no refunds can be provided.

For this reason, travel insurance is highly recommended.

We recommend flying into Cancun International Airport (CUN) and consider arriving a day or two early and spending a few nights in Cancun to allow your body and nervous system to acclimate. 

Refund Policy

Due to the high cost nature of this event and the requirement to pay sizeable deposits to the venue the follow policy is strictly applied

Before 12th July

a 25% refund of monies paid will be provided.

From 12th July 2023 

no refunds can be provided.

Travel insurance is highly recommended.
