A month of Mysticism Spirituality and Enlightenment


This has been an especially special month for me and it’s all because of the way that it started:

I once again went to Mexico to discover some new hidden gems (and BOY did I ever):

Cuernavaca, Morelos; known as “The City of the Eternal Spring
(my words ETERNALLY yours)
Tepoztlán, Morelos; “Known for being a Spiritual Center with Energy and Mysticism” (my words is just pure MAGIC)

Over all each town is approximately two hours from Mexico City, I went there in search of unique sites for my Incentive clients (something I am always on the hunt for). Through (my friends) Marie-Claude Bouffard & Ferdy Compeán at Meeting Place Mexico

Well, when I arrived, I was floored to find out that these were not only spectacular locations but incredibly mystical and spiritual places. I did not expect these wonderful discoveries; I mean the Haciendas alone where breathtaking:

* Hotel SPA Hacienda des Cortes
* Hostal de la Luz – Spa Holistic Resort
* Mision del Sol
* Hacienda Vista Hermosa

OMG OMG OMG you should see these properties, OMG, they were so enveloping with lushness that one WANTS to get lost in them … I’m telling you … the natural beauty took my breath away. Make no mistake; we were nowhere near the ocean.
However, the intense zenness and spiritual energy will overwhelm you. Imagine my surprise when suddenly found myself succumbing to this energy which re-aligned my mind / body and soul … this renewed clarity was overwhelming …WOW WOW WOW.

Needless to say I highly recommend this paraíso. What a privilege the universe gave me, GRACIAS.

It’s the end of the month and I still can’t shake how profoundly moved I got. So, if you, a group or someone you know is seeking a place of tranquility where they want to reconnect with their mind, body and soul have them call me, I will gladly oblige … I might even join them …ouff I WANT to sooo go BACK !!! (trust me … I don’t say these words lightly)

When I returned, I jumped right into Zoom Academie’s  weekend Wedding BootCamp workshop; this is where myself and the lovely Lyne Branchaud speak, over two consecutive Sundays about how to become a Wedding Planner. This workshop is given in French: << Conception et planification d’un mariage>>

That following Monday, I went Orlando, Florida for an annual association incentive conference, this is geared towards the Associative Planners in the greater North American incentive market. This is a very niche sector.
Orlando was perfect setting for this I was able to reconnect, meet new and upcoming vendors. I learnt about the upcoming conference technological trends. Imagine, I got to try the Google Glasses!! I’m officially a GEEKY trendy planner…

While I was gone .. my SUPERSTAR assistant Jennifer was holding the fort with four consecutive ongoing client programs: Medical Info Session / Client Appreciation Soiree / 50th Wedding Anniversary / Branch Grand Opening of a
Financial Institution
… when I finally got back I did an Educational Workshop for our IT client.
