From Pointless to Purpose: A Women’s Kundalini Yoga Week Retreat

Ready to Transform Your Life with the Power of Kundalini Yoga?

If you’re struggling with feelings of emptiness, a lack of purpose, or the overwhelming sense of playing multiple roles without finding your true self, this women-exclusive retreat is for you.

Inspired by Rumi’s profound insight, ‘The wound is the place where the Light enters,’ this retreat is your gateway to create  a life filled with joy, purpose, and love.

Guided by Candace Castro, who has journeyed through her own inner battles, this one-week retreat is specially designed for women, inviting you to explore and harmonize your three minds.

It’s more than just a retreat; it’s a transformative journey nestled in the serenity of nature, where peaceful forest cabins and soul-nourishing, plant-based meals await you.

Rumi’s quote noted above, inspired Candace to move past her inner demons and to share what she has learned to enable other women to also create their own life of Joy, Purpose and Love.  Join her for this one-week dive into your 3 minds (yes there are 3) and how to use them effectively and creatively.

What weakens you? Your thoughts.
What destroys you? Your thoughts.
In reality, thoughts are given to expand you, so you’ll realize
I am ALL

Meet Your Facilitator

Candace Castro

Candace's life story is a testament to resilience and transformation. Having spent much of her life in a quest for identity, she navigated through various societal roles, from being a single mom and entrepreneur facing personal and financial challenges to the glamour and glitz of being a tai tai. Despite achieving outward “success”, she was haunted by a sense of emptiness and a lack of purpose, continually seeking validation and love externally. Her journey was marked by relationship struggles, financial challenges, and the quest for self-worth. The discovery of Kundalini Yoga marked a pivotal change in Candace's life, guiding her towards happiness and fulfillment helping her realize her potential and embrace her authentic self. Now, as a seasoned practitioner and guide, Candace is passionate about sharing the transformative power of Kundalini Yoga with others. Her rich life experiences, coupled with the wisdom of Kundalini Yoga, make her uniquely qualified to lead you from a sense of pointlessness to a life filled with joy, purpose, and love.
