As our world traverses challenging times,  we have individually and collectively, 'stepped into the fire'.  A POWERFUL PASSAGE! 


As we emerge from the fire and ash, we rise like the Phoenix... and are REBORN....  liberating ourselves from the chaos and fear, entering a new place of balance and FREEDOM!


The Gray whales are sending a Clarion call...  Are you feeling it?  


The whales are calling us to return to the Baja Birthing Lagoons and to the precious town of Loreto. This is our 4th time returning to Baja.  Beth receives clear Guidance from the whales/and Kamio, (the white albino whale) exact locations and dates to bring her Retreat groups.  The experiences have continue to be profound and life changing!  ALWAYS supporting us right where we are on our path to the Greatest Version of ourselves!  This journey will take place, once again, over  the 'Shiva Ratri'  at the tranquil San Ignacio Lagoon, in Baja MX.


 The word 'Ignacio' means, Reborn From The Fire

These challenging times we've been faced with, may very well be considered some of our most difficult.

This retreat provides you with simple tools, practices and teachings that inspire you to move from a state of fear and self imposed  limitation, to Self Empowerment and Freedom.  The whales are the true Ambassadors of the heart and just being in their presence, will open you up to likely the  the most profound  love you may have ever experienced in your entire life.  Honestly, words just fall short when trying to convey this extraordinarily powerful experience.   This Retreat gives you an opportunity to birth the greatest version of yourself and your most joyous life!!  

Our Journey Begins...
Meet the Blue Whales


Loreto Mexico

This magical  journey takes us to a quiet little town right on the crystal blue Sea of Cortez, where our Whale Tribe will gather together, co-creating a most powerful adventure!   We'll be gifted with the privilege to meet the largest animals known to have ever existed! The Blue Whales!  These enormous, yet majestic Beings move so gracefully through the waters.... often times, catching glimpses of their precious babies.  It is breathtaking to be in their loving presence.  
A private boat will sweep us out to sea for a portion of the day, as we bask in the joy of all the surprises that  await....  and perhaps we may experience a pod of playful dolphins along the way!

We'll luxuriate in the comfort of this Loreto hotel for a 2 night stay before heading to San Ignacio Lagoon Whale Camp to be with the Beloved Gray Whales!

Conception Bay


As we head towards San Ignancio Lagoon, we will make a very special stop at a powerful location site.... Conception Bay.  The raw beauty here is insurmountable!  Other worldly.

The Clear turquoise crystaline waters will mesmerize you.  The warmth of the water upon your skin, fills you with a deep peace, as you sink down into its liquidy velvet embrace.  
These exquisite waters will cleanse and purify.  Freeing your body from the chains of the past, moving beyond the 'limited self' and into the life you desire! 
Here, you'll experience your own 'Conception'....  and enter the path toward  birthing the GREATEST version of YOU! 

              Pregnant with possibility!

Imagine yourself arriving at our serene whale camp in San Ignacio Lagoon, you take your first steps out of the van and onto the beach.  Your senses heighten as you take in the scents and sounds of the beautiful ocean.  You've arrived!  A flock of birds soar gently overhead, bidding you hello.

Your anticipation heightens as you peer out over the waters edge.  To your surprise, out in the distance you see an enormous gray whale breaching out of the water!  It takes your breath away... "So Beautiful!" you say aloud, as the sun's reflections gently glisten and dance upon the water.


This is one of those special moments in your life when a knowing washes over you...  everything aligns and you realize that you are at the right place at the perfect time and this is just the beginning!

Gentle Giants

IMG_2146 (2).jpg

When you find yourself eye to eye with a whale, the feeling is indescribable and before you realize it, tears have filled your eyes and your heart has blasted wide open!!!   


The whales literally swim right up to the boats.  With just a reach of your hand, you can touch, hug and kiss these incredible Beings!!  Sometimes a mama whale will swim under their calf and lift her baby directly up to the boat, offering it up so everyone can meet and greet her baby!  This is the most profound act of trust that I have ever witnessed!  


These gentle giants love playing and interacting with us!  They emit such an enormous field of unconditional love and JOY, Imparting a priceless gift...  The keys to unlock our hearts.  Finally discovering what it means to open fully to Love!

The Baja Sur in Mexico holds such a unique offering... it is the only location in the world where these friendly whales willingly and eagerly seek out  interaction with humans, up close and personal in their own natural environment. 


Serene San Ignacio Lagoon can have up to 500 migrating Gray Whales in it at one time!  Here, the whales come to play, conceive and birth their precious young.   

Meet Kamio
White Albino Gray Whale


Beth and her husband 1st met Kamio as a baby in a birthing lagoon in Baja, March 2017


Beth was guided by Kamio to bring a group to Baja, March 2022 and guess who showed up Full Grown.... You guessed it!  Kamio!

A White Rainbow appeared the morning after Kamio greeted us.

Six years ago, Beth and her husband Shin were guided to go to Baja Mexico to be with the Gray Whales.  They acted on their Guidance and this is where a very special and rare encounter occurred on the Shiva Ratri!!  A beautiful baby White Albino gray whale showed up next to their boat all by herself.  No mama to be seen.  She surfaced just 3 times and as quickly as she had appeared, she was gone.  

It was a miraculous and powerful experience to say the least and brought them both to tears.  This was obviously the reason they had been called there.  Beth received the baby whale's name, Kamio, and was shown that she was a female.  Beth has continued a very strong and loving connection with Kamio and has received many messages from; her and the  Beloved whales.  

In September of 2021, Beth received Guidance from Kamio to bring a retreat group to Baja over the Shiva Ratri, to a different Lagoon where Beth had never been before.  She trusted her Guidance and a group of 15 people attended the retreat, March, 2022.  

Kamio hadn't been sighted in this particular Bay before, but the day before the Shiva Ratri, Kamio showed up, Full Grown, right next to the boat and swam directly under Beth's outreached arm for about 5 minutes and then departed!

Beth was beyond herself and was filled with more love than she had almost ever experienced in her life!  She began toning a chant immediately after this incredible encounter.

Beth was guided to draw a rainbow with her hand in the air, while saying, "Codes of the White Rainbow", over and over.  Miraculously, the next morning when the group went out to get on the boats to see more whales, there appeared in the sky, just over the water, the most beautiful White Rainbow!  A profound message and gift to all of humanity delivered from Kamio!



MEANING OF THE WHITE RAINBOW:  (Related to White Buffalo Calf Woman Prophesy)

The colors of the rainbow symbolize all the different races, colors and religions of humanity across the planet.  When people move beyond judgement and embrace each individual's differences and accept one another in unconditional love.... we unite as One.


So, when we mix all the colors of the rainbow together, what happens when they are blended? 

We get the color WHITE!  

And what color is Kamio?  WHITE!

And what color was the rainbow that showed up after Kamio's appearance?  WHITE!

This retreat is most definitely inspired and Guided by our Beloved Kamio.  She is leading us 'Out of the Fire' and into our hearts!  From Fear to Love!  And the whales are standing by, ready to lead us steadily into our hearts... which is the only passageway to LOVE

Are You Receiving The Call?

Whale Camp

After a day full of surprises and miracles, Imagine yourself, relaxing in your cabin, as you gaze out at the Lagoon, witnessing the sun slowly making its way toward the horizon.  You drink in this magical moment, realizing you haven't felt this nourished and peaceful for a very long time.   

We will be staying 4 nights in beach front cabins that have beautiful views of the Lagoon.  Each cabin is equipped with a shared bathroom, a hot water shower, as well as an odorless sawdust composting toilet.  
 The cabins are double occupancy, yet if you'd like your own space...  Single occupancy is available for an additional cost.

Delectable Delights
Red Chili Pepper

Picture yourself waking up to a spectacular vista of the sunrise, calm ocean waters and the smell of fresh coffee and tea brewing.  Enjoying the sun's gentle rays warming up the day as you choose your favorite option of Baja's traditional homemade breakfast made especially for you at our very own Whale Camp kitchen.


Beautiful meals will be prepared, sure to please everyone's palate. 

Dietary restrictions?  No problem.

The chefs can accommodate all types of eating.

Relax, unwind, dine and share your adventures from the day with your new friends.


Fear to Freedom

Life Enhancing Practices and Teachings



Since early childhood, the whales have come to Beth in dream time... over the years her relationship with both the whales and dolphins has deepened greatly. She now brings through loving messages and Lemurian Sound Activations directly from the whales and dolphins, allowing her to be the Voice for these magnificent Beings. Their powerful yet loving transmissions genuinely support our individual and collective journey of Awakening.

During our time together, Beth will share simple teachings that empower you to create your own reality and the life of your dreams.   Stepping out of the old behaviors and patterns that can sabotage your best efforts.  Moving beyond the limited self!

We'll gather together each day to explore and integrate simple practices, that include breath work, meditation and essential keys for 'Deliberate Creation'. 

With the loving presence of the whales, you'll experience a new found state of well-being, alignment, balance and freedom!


Beth will bring forth channeled messages and Activations from the Whales, assisting each with their individual integration process, expansion and healing. 












Cocoa Ceremonies have been around for thousands of years.  Originating back to the Mayan and Aztec traditions.  Its use is for spiritual and ceremonial purposes.  

We will circle up together amongst the waters edge and share in a beautiful Cocoa Ceremony.  Cocoa is a gentle heart opener that allows you to drop into yourself in a deeper way, supporting your own unique intention on your journey.  

As our whale tribe gathers, we'll share and witness each other in a place of authenticity, vulnerability and love.  

Celebrating together as we dance under the star filled night.

As the Beloved whales sing to you their Ancient Songs, the songs of remembrance.... Their gift is one of activation and awakening. A deep knowing  has laid dormant in you for so long. A stirring quickens from within.  A gentle whisper arises... your heart listening to the sound that reveals the hidden Truth.  You Realize this melody is a language,  A key, that unlocks your Sacred Heart and sets you FREE!
