The Calling

Join us for an illuminating and transformational seven-nights along the sandy beaches of the Bay of Banderas in Nayarit on Mexico’s Pacific coast. This intimate and luxurious women’s retreat is designed to support you in not only enhancing your manifesting capabilities, and gaining clarity, but also IGNITING an up-leveled vision for your life – a life that represents your RADIANT REALITY™.

In a sacred space, along with six like-minded women, you will lovingly step out of your old way of being. Through guided reflections, meditative movements, and immersion in the beautiful scenery you will gain clarity on what is no longer serving you as well as what it is you truly desire. You will reignite your life! Each moment of this soul-filled inner and outer journey is specially designed for your highest potentials to be activated and nurtured.

Who is Coming

The Radiant Reality retreat is for the ambitious awakening woman desiring to up-level her life.

  • Deeply craving to feel more alive and aligned with your true self and potential for success
  • A new dream or desire is welling up where you can’t ignore it any longer
  • Yearning to experience deeper, more meaningful, fun, creative achievements and ways of being
  • An inner knowing that it’s your time to shine in bigger and more impactful ways
  • A deep desire to rise above the unrest in the world and live from a place of self-empowerment and elevated vibrations
  • Understanding your body is your temple and wanting to ignite your life force
  • Desiring a stronger connection with your body so you can connect stronger with your spirit

Why Now

The world is rapidly changing – old structures of being, doing, and having are breaking down. Pain, unrest, and anxiety about what the future holds are palpable. The way to shift this volatile energy is for each of us to fully own our power to create a new future for ourselves!

This is a shift to release the version of ourselves we are being told to be versus the true authentic vision we desire to build. We are being called to BE THE CHANGE as leaders, role models, and visionaries.

At the Radiant Reality Retreat™, together we ignite your highest timeline, enabling you to…

  • Reconnect with your body and activate your innate intuitive wisdom
  • Lovingly release what is no longer serving your higher potential
  • Realign your ego  to work synergistically with your vision, erasing self-sabotage
  • Eliminate stories around time, money, approval addictions, or chronic self-doubt
  • Grow beyond your fears and learn to live courageously from a higher perspective
  • Clear self-limitations and make room for more happiness and fulfillment
  • Create your new world – your own Radiant Reality™

The Radiant Reality retreat is designed to achieve all of that and so much more. You’ll return relaxed, rejuvenated, and a beacon of light for yourself and all the people in your life. Best of all these incredibly big shifts don’t have to take years, they can happen in mere days!


  • You’ll work directly with Christine and Ana in small group settings
  • Nurture yourself in a fun environment, listening to your soul and let your dreams and desires soar
  • Expand your awareness through masterfully guided inner work, movement, meditation, and healing ceremonies
  • Create a deep sense of connection and community with others who are walking a similar path of reconnection with self 
  • Balance of inner work and outer fun in a luxurious setting
  • Enjoy plenty of free time to rejuvenate at the spa, in the cabanas, or on the beach at the gorgeous resort grounds

Christine Howard

Personal challenges with early-stage breast cancer and a looming divorce became Christine’s wake-up call not to live life in the day-planner. Pausing to reevaluate every aspect of who she was and what she believed, she discovered a brand-new way of relating to herSELF with honor, love, and authenticity.

Her inner work cleared the path to what she calls Radiant Achievement, which is also the topic of her best-selling book and mobile app, where she teaches the art of success without sacrifice. “Step out of frenzy and into flow” is one of the core mantras Christine teaches, speaks, and writes about in her business. Not just a tagline; it is part of who she intentionally shows up as every day.

A leadership-lifestyle mentor and soul-calling catalyst, Christine’s passion for living a radiant and fulfilling life is contagious. It’s no wonder she is gifted to guide women to realize their highest personal and professional aspirations. Her clients range from corporate executives to start-up entrepreneurs to business owners looking to retire and pursue their passion projects. One thing they all have in common is the desire to envision and create their Radiant Reality.

With 17 years of corporate IT experience under her belt, Christine has been mentoring since 2001. With numerous certifications and training in life coaching, transformational leadership, and self-empowerment, she has an unwavering commitment to assisting women to not overwork, over-give, and stay stuck in overwhelm. Her secret sauce? Her model of blending masculine and feminine success principles into a dynamic Radiant Achiever lifestyle.


Ana Nieto

From a young age, Ana knew she wanted to help people, originally wanting to become a physical therapist and ending with studying nursing in Spain. What Ana discovered as a nurse is that while she loved making a difference in her patients’ lives, she was disappointed in the approach of conventional health care. Frustrated with seeing conventional medicine treating only the symptoms but not the body as a whole, Ana decided on a change in her path.

When arriving in New York City, she discovered a particular type of exercise called SuperSlow. Using this method, she only worked out for 30 minutes once a week. Within three months, Ana saw amazing results making no changes in her diet. Not only did she notice the loss of fat, muscle gain, and improved athletic performance, but she noticed how good her body was feeling including the disappearance of her back pain from childhood scoliosis. For the first time, Ana was able to beat her own father at tennis. Her mother wondered what she had done to improve her posture so dramatically because as one of the tallest girls among her friends in Spain she always slouched.

Ana’s passion was ignited, compelling her to start her own personal training business to fulfill the next level in her evolution of helping others achieve complete health and happiness, thus Mindful Online Gym was born.

The business model incorporates more than personal training and is geared toward helping clients to transform not only how they look and feel, but also transform their body, mind, and soul.

Ana believes that health means freedom, exhilaration, excitement, and living life to the fullest. These are the qualities she wants YOU to feel as a result of your transformational work together.
