Learn how the Radiant Reality™ & Mindful Movement Retreat can transform your life!

Your Up-Leveled Life Vision and
Manifesting Superpowers are Calling to You

Let’s Ignite them Together

Are you ready for six days that will change your life? Six days of transformational self-discovery that will reignite your joy and passion for living life on your terms?

Situated on a hill in the Spanish countryside, this intimate women’s retreat invites you to relax, revive and recalibrate, all while taking in the expansive Andalusian cortijo* and gardens overlooking a valley and the Mediterranean sea.

(* Cortijo: a type of traditional rural dwelling (akin to the German Bauernhof, also known as a Farmhouse in English) in the southern half of Spain.)

In the serenity of this sacred site, you will gain clarity on what is no longer serving you, rediscover what it is you truly desire, and re-energize your life, inside and out.

Every step of the Radiant Reality & Mindful Movement Retreat is carefully designed to activate and nurture your highest potential while bringing your body, mind, and spirit back into harmonious alignment.

Join us and our amazing group of like-minded women to learn how to break free from self-imposed constraints and use your manifesting superpowers – your powerful magnetic presence to create the world you want to live in—your own unique Radiant Reality.

Who is this Retreat For?​

Are you ready to THRIVE on your own terms, but aren’t sure how, or what that even looks like? Then you’re in the right place. The Radiant Reality & Mindful Movement Retreat is for the ambitious, highly motivated woman who wants to:

Let Go:

  • Of behaviors and patterns that have been holding you back
  • Of self-defeating thought processes and toxic relationships
  • Of the emotional and spiritual baggage that keeps you feeling stuck


  • Your ability to manifest the things you want in this life
  • Your ability to make decisions that truly benefit who you are at your core
  • Your mental, physical, and spiritual power 


  • The calm and ease of a life that’s in flow with the world around you
  • The joy of feeling free and confident in your body
  • The next exciting steps on your personal journey!

Awakening the Body:

The stronger your connection with your physical body, the stronger you can connect with your spirit.

Your physical health and wellness are the foundation from which your spiritual growth can blossom. Throughout the retreat, you will be invited to reconnect with your body, unlock your power, and experience more confidence and comfort in your own skin.

Combining mindful movements and workouts, and delicious, thoughtfully prepared meals from locally sourced clean ingredients, the retreat is also focused on nourishing and honoring your physical body to facilitate even greater spiritual growth.

Awakening Mind & Spirit:

One of the greatest acts of courage and love is to live the life your heart and soul desire you to live. 

From high vibrational practices to transformational energy experiences and sacred ceremonies, the Radiant Reality & Mindful Movement Retreat offers five days of progressive inner work that breaks down the barriers to receptivity and guides you toward clarity, calm, and purpose.  

As you move through the progressive phases of inner work, you will find yourself awakening to your calling with a renewed sense of direction and a deeper commitment to building the life your soul has been yearning to live.

Now is the Time to Create Your New Future

The last few years have taken a toll on all of us. Everywhere you look, you see people who are mentally drained, physically exhausted, and spiritually depleted.

The world feels like a dark place right now. So how do we start to make a shift. How do we turn on the light? Where do we even begin?

We become the light.

The change we all want to see in the world doesn’t come from telling others how to act, how to be, or how to relate to one another. It comes from within. It comes from tapping into our own unique ability to bring joy, balance, and light into our own lives.

When you decide to be the light in your own life, that light naturally radiates out to everyone you meet, touch and work with. This is how real change begins. And it begins right here at the Radiant Reality™ & Mindful Movement Retreat.


  • You’ll work directly with Christine and Ana in a small group setting
  • 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, silence, 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 breathtaking setting surrounded by nature
  • Enjoy plenty of free time to rejuvenate in the beautiful gardens, pool, and open spaces at the gorgeous retreat center grounds
  • Purify your body with delicious and nutritious foods to align with your up-leveled life vision
  • Experience mindful movement that energizes your body, mind, and spirit

**Special Add On Trip**

September 2nd-3rd

Curated Experience to La Alhambra in Granada

End your retreat experience with a custom bonus day that includes a trip to one of the most beautiful and sacred places on earth.

The day starts with a beautiful drive to Granada across fields of olive and almond trees. In Granada, we will spend the morning visiting the Alhambra, one of the 7 wonders of the Muslim World. 

The Alhambra is a fortress complex containing several Islamic and Christian palaces that are considered jewels of Islamic and Spanish Renaissance Art. Going back to the 8th century, the Alhambra is the size of a small village with different enchanting gardens and fountains, palaces, passageways, and a fortress that was home to the Sultan, his family, and the court. The Alhambra is the only Muslim citadel that is still standing almost as perfectly as it was back in medieval times.

From there, we will head to Granada’s Albaycin, the Medieval Jewish settlement, where we will enjoy a leisurely lunch with wonderful frontal views of the Alhambra and the royal gardens of the Generalife. A breathtaking experience.

Your day will be completed with a private ride back to Malaga where you can relax in your room after an amazing day or venture out for a late dinner as the sun sets late. 

Locals believe that Malaga is at its best once the sun goes down: the architectural jewels of the city are lightened up, and there is great outdoor dining, beautiful wine cellars, and fun discos if you decide to dance the night away! 

Included in this cultural experience: 

Transportation to and from Malaga

Entry ticket to the Alhambra with a private guided tour

Lunch with local wine 

Leisure time in Granada city center for shopping and relaxing

One night stay with breakfast at the Soho Boutique Equitativa hotel in Malaga

Upgrade Option: $597 solo room / $497 shared room

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.

Set in a secluded location at the top of its own private valley looking to the sea, Santillán is a 5-hectare estate with the retreat center at its heart.

Located in the peace of the Spanish countryside, and yet conveniently only 35 minutes from Malaga airport, you can immerse yourself in the peaceful sounds of nature in their lovely gardens and surrounding hills. Santillán was listed in The Times newspaper as one of the 20 Top Yoga Retreats in the World.

Santillán Retreat is owned and managed by the Marchini family alongside partner and resident yoga teacher Simon Low. Marta and Adriana are the resorts dedicated yoga students, with Adriana, a qualified BWY & Yoga Alliance (US) yoga teacher, being the Santillán’s managing director.

For over 30 years the Marchini family has been building, beautifying, and caring for Santillán and constantly being told by guests that Santillán is their favorite and the best-equipped retreat center in Europe.

The Santillan Retreat and Wellness Centre’s dharma is to unceasingly nurture the potential and enjoyment of Santillán and to continue to respectfully farm the extensive Andalusian farmland, all with their guests’ best experience at heart.
