Unbecoming: A Sacred Exploration of Your Wyld Roots

A Wellness Retreat with Melissa Saubers and Amy Keely

“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.” ~ Paulo Coelho.

Join Melissa Saubers and Amy Keely for a journey back to The True You.

Unbecoming: A Sacred Exploration of Your Wyld Roots is the retreat for you if you’re ready to let go of the false identities, protective walls, and masks that are preventing you from shining your light bright.

This is a journey back to your Wyld Roots and your most authentic self.

During our time together in the tropical oasis of El Paredon, Guatemala we will offer sacred and safe spaces for you to release what is no longer in alignment, explore what lights you up, open your heart to all that life has to offer you, activate your gifts, root into your self, and become the True You.

Through breath, sound, movement, embodiment practices, and deep connection with self, community, nature, and spirit you will feel yourself shift to your next highest timeline. You will leave embodying who you were meant to be in the first place.

It is our honor to be your guides on this magnificent, life-changing journey. This is an alcohol-free retreat.

What to expect in Melissa’s Class

Expect a little bit of science, a little bit of psychology, and a whole lotta spirituality as Melissa leads you into an exploration of your heart and your subconscious mind and teaches you how to connect with something beyond you in the Quantum Field. Learn techniques and tools for using your heart as your guide and consciously manifesting your dreams and desires.

Melissa Saubers is a heart-centered Spiritual Teacher, Facilitator, Healer, Coach, and Mentor from Kansas City with a holistic healing approach rooted in science, psychology, and spirituality. She developed The Quantum Manifestation Process (QMP) based on her fascination for the subconscious mind, the quantum field, manifestation, and expanding consciousness. She uses this process and her many gifts to help her clients on their healing, expansion, and manifestation journeys. Those gifts include breathwork, quantum hypnosis, cacao, and energy healing.

She has created multiple movement methods and is the owner of Wyld Roots Wellness Studio in the Kansas City area. Students share that she brings BIG ENERGY, the best playlist, and creativity, which feels like therapy in movement form guiding them to feel more connected to their bodies.

She is an Intuitive, Creative, Healer, Mentor, and Energy Alchemist using her gifts to help navigate her clients’ healing journey. She has been in practice as a Registered Dietitian for 17 years using her nutrition knowledge to help patients manage their health conditions.

Itinerary

Day 01 - The Opening Ceremony

After arrival into Guatemala City International Airport, you’ll be whisked away and dropped off at our beautiful boho beachside retreat center. After a few hours of relaxation and getting to know your new friends, we’ll head to our opening ceremony with Melissa & Amy.

A welcome dinner and a good night’s rest follows.

Day 02 - The Releasing

Our first full day in Guatemala together will begin the morning with a sunrise meditation followed by a nourishing breakfast. After some relaxation, we’ll gather for our Release Workshop – co-led by Amy & Melissa. You will release what is no longer in alignment during our 60 minutes together. This practice includes somatic hip opening and heart-clearing movement ending with a heart-expanding breathwork session. 

After lunch, we’ll have time for integration and familiarize ourselves with our local surroundings – journal on the beach in our backyard, cool off by the pool or relax in a hammock. We will end our night off with a delicious dinner we’ll gather around a bonfire for a fire release ceremony.

Day 03 - The Exploration

At dawn, we’ll embark on a serene journey to one of the world’s rare sea-turtle feeding grounds to witness the magical hatching of baby turtles making their way to the ocean. Following this awe-inspiring experience, we’ll engage in a peaceful meditation and gentle movement session as the sun ascends.

Following a nourishing breakfast, we’ll convene for another insightful practice being with and exploring the beauty and magic of your body during this exploratory somatic, energy-clearing movement class. Led by Amy. 

As the afternoon unfolds, we’ll embark on an enchanting kayak journey along the scenic mangrove-lined river at the edge of Sipacate El Naranjo National Park. Led by a knowledgeable local guide, we’ll navigate through the mangroves, spotting native wildlife and sea turtles.

We’ll reconvene at the property for a delectable in-house dinner and prepare for a restful night ahead.

Day 04 - The Activation

Enjoy a leisurely morning with the option to sleep in before we gather for a delightful breakfast.
Following breakfast, join us to activate your sacral chakra and turn on your feminine essence during this 60-minute energy clearing and embodiment movement practice led by Amy

After lunch, take time to unwind and rejuvenate with massages, leisurely beach walks, or lounging by the pool.

We’ll reconvene for a serene Sunset Breathwork session where Melissa will guide you through a 40-minute therapeutic breathwork journey on the beach while the sun slowly sets. You will catalyze and release stuck emotions and pain, then receive divine insight and healing, further connecting to the true you.

Dinner and a good night’s rest will follow.

Day 05 - The Rooting

On our last full day together in Guatemala, you’ll have the opportunity to experience surfing if you wish. Following a hearty breakfast, we’ll convene for our final workshop co-led by Amy & Melissa. It’s time to ground in all that has shifted for you during our time together. Amy and Melissa will lead you in a movement and breath practice that will help you root in the New You. 

The remainder of the afternoon is yours to reflect and integrate the experiences we’ve shared during this retreat. We’ll gather once more for a heartfelt closing ceremony, followed by a final farewell dinner.

We’ll culminate our retreat with a beach bonfire where we will come together for a closing ceremony, and a night of fun and dance under the stars.

Day 06 - Until Next Time

We’ll conclude our time with a heartfelt breakfast and farewells (or “see you later”s)!
