Z Retreat Vilcabamba & Anza Borrega

Vortex of Change
A Retreat in Vilcabamba Ecuador
November 12 – 19, 2016

VilcabambaWelcome to Vilcabamba, Ecuador—a quaint South American village, nestled in the Andes, known for it’s pristine environment and world-class water.

But don’t let the pictures fool you. Vilcabamba is a serious vortex of energy that causes you to spin up or spin out. We’ll be focused on spinning up, but enter at your own risk. This will be 7 days of intense internal work, transformation, and breakthrough.

The retreat provides an opportunity to come together with other like-minded spiritual aspirants from around the world, to learn from each other’s experiences, and to support each other’s leaps in consciousness. It is for those who want a more intimate gathering, to spawn deeper work, in a setting that most visitors label as “paradise”.

Retreat Madre Tierra StaircaseVilcabamba provides the mystical energy, Lucia provides her mystical skills, and the combination is powerful. Add to that your repeated empowerments, via in-person Transmissions of Light, and it may be enough to put you, spiritually, over-the-top.

And this is where new information comes through for Lucia, inspired by the collaboration and willingness of the group at hand. So attending gives you a front-row seat for the latest flavor of Empowerment.

When you travel to a new location, you not only leave home, you leave your entrenched patterns behind. And all of your mystical circuits must come on in order to navigate your new environment. This potent set-up makes it easier to step outside of your current, spiritual configuration and view it from a new perspective.

In Vilcabamba, we’ll take advantage of this. Together, we’ll isolate your number-one spiritual roadblock. Then, as the week progresses, we’ll work on it from a number of different mystical perspectives.  You’ll have the opportunity to examine this part of your life from a more detached vantage point, work on it at a deeper level, and make breakthrough shifts in consciousness.

Testimonials from the 2015 RetreatTestimonial SS-177428234 Gold Ribbon

  • “This retreat was life changing. Lucia was able to meet me where I was, with compassion, firmness and strength.” Rakhi, South Africa
  • “This retreat was life-changing and unlike any other I’ve ever attended.  The genuine love I experienced has stayed with me and helped solidify the work that was done in my being…” Cathy, U.S.
  • “Wow! The retreat was beyond my wildest expectations. I am still feeling blown away by all that we experienced, processed and created. I feel completely different… I am witnessing places—places that held blocked energy for years—dissolve and disappear. My body feels stronger and more balanced. It is much easier to process—as though I am seeing life from a new level and am no longer as affected by dense drama.” Tash, Australia

There is one free morning and one free afternoon for you to journal, book a private session, have a massage, or just lie by the pool.

Evenings are free, although we have several extra-curricular activities planned:


Susan Gash

On our first evening, A Spirit Doctor session with Susan Gash to help you unwind and overcome your jet-lag.  Susan and Lucia have collaborated during Treasure Trove of Transformation workshops and Awaken Academy. She is the incarnation of sublime.  And, as an added treat, Susan will be assisting us during the retreat and available for private sessions.



MontesuenosTea & Tour of Montesueños eco-resort. When you enter Montesueños (which translates as ‘mountain of dreams’) you walk into a work of art and a world of magic, compliments of artist, Meredith Miller, whose focus is the Divine Feminine.  In addition to tea, you’ll be able to chat with the artist, tour the gardens, and visit some of the most magical hotel rooms ever created.


Retreat FirepitOn the final evening, you are invited for an evening at Lucia’s white temple so you can relax, enjoy the breathtaking views, and bathe in the energy of Oneness. Then we’ll hang out around the fire as the curtain falls on the Vilcabama night and our shared 7-day experience.

Then, all that remains is to have fun planning your trip to meet Lucia, in person, in paradise…







The 2015 Vilcabamba Retreat provided major shifts for many of the 18 participants. By the end of the week, the group was functioning in an ascended state, with One Mind. Please enjoy the 2015 retreat photos…

Anza Borrego Desert Trip
Dates TBD (Postponed from 2016 to 2017)

In the 1980s, Lucia’s mystical teacher used to take his apprentices to the Anza Borrego desert, in southern California, for mystical training and magic.  They were out-of-this-world experiences.  Literally.

Purple Desert Mts at SunsetThere are two locations he used: One is a place of seeing on a mountain plateau.  The other is “The Gorge”, a place of truly awesome power.  If you know the exact location on the mountain plateau, you can find the spot where he opened a vortex to the other words.  If you are are exceedingly circumspect when you walk through the Gorge, you’ll succeed in selecting a spot for the evening where you can enter the other worlds.

This will be a 3-day retreat, following close on the heels of Lucia’s San Francisco workshop on July 7-10, 2016.  All meetings will take place beginning at sunset.

For years, people have asked Lucia, “When are you going to do a desert trip”. At this juncture, the answer is, “Soon”.  Lucia’s teacher has promised to facilitate the magic from the other side.

Please stay tuned for further details via Lucia’s newsletter.

Because this trip will be ultra-powerful, those wishing to attend will be asked to fill out an application, complete the pre-requisite of reading Leslie Temple-Thurston’s The Marriage of Spirit, and sign a release form at the beginning of the trip.
