RETREAT CLIENT FULL TESTIMONIALS
Full Testimonial, Michelle M, April 2019
Having felt very stuck in my life, especially in regards to a big decision for graduate school, I had reached out to Alicia Rodriguez in hopes to find some clarity and confidence in what I was doing.
Prior to my arrival, Alicia and I spent time talking about my situation and what it was I was looking to resolve. Before even arriving in Ecuador, Alicia was able to listen to my concerns and tune my trip & activities to my needs.
I spent with her where I was well taken care of, felt very safe, and ultimately free from the hustle & bustle of regular life. Being able to remove yourself from everyday stress, the beautiful scenery, and having a personal coach and friend to talk to anytime was more than helpful.
From beginning to end, my work with Alicia helped me to shift my perspectives and mindset and really let go of my fears. During our conversations I could physically feel the weight lift off my shoulders, my face would become brighter, and it became easier to breathe as I was letting go of so much crap I held onto.
My personal work with Alicia was truly groundbreaking.
I was taken aback by how my mind and body has had a huge shift within a single week, which has been ten times more productive/effective than regular CBT therapy (which I had tried the last 2 years!).
I physically felt my mind and body let go of the negative mindset that I had and found power and confidence within myself and my choices.
The one week that I spent with Alicia was truly incredible from both a personal development perspective but also as retreat vacation!
It was surprising how each day’s activity would relate to the ongoing conversation we would have and a takeaway lesson that I still refer back to.
There is also of great importance on having personal time and spending time alone to write and enjoy the beach and clear your mind was very calming and rejuvenating.
My retreat to Ecuador and with Alicia has given me a huge sense of clarity, confidence, energy & motivation (which were some of my biggest concerns) for the next step in my journey.
There are so many lessons that I have learned and held onto since returning and knowing that If there are moments where I may need some encouragement, Alicia is one Skype call away to remind me of those things I’ve learned with her.
Whatever it is that you may have holding you back or if you're looking for a personal one on one retreat, look no further. Alicia Rodriguez is an incredibly intuitive coach, writer, and now my forever friend who I would recommend to anyone looking for the opportunity to grow and learn about yourself.

I am a very logical and analytical person that tends to shy away from "woo woo" coaching or "finding one's purpose" bullshit. Alicia was "prescribed" to me by an incredible powerhouse friend who just felt it in her bones that I had to spend a week with Alicia in Ecuador to unblock my mental frameworks, to reboot the limiting stories about myself and to help me discover the incredible potential that others saw but that I don't seem to see in myself. After just one call with Alicia, everything "felt" right despite my cynical logical mind and I was in Ecuador 9 days later.
She is gifted in asking the right questions that helped me find my own answers. She kept the self-discovery upbeat by triggering my curiosity about my own stories, their origins and how to reframe them to be less self-limiting.
Her wisdom and ability to guide me by asking calming questions helped my soul speak up.
Alicia has guided me to cultivate and listen to my energy just by paying deep attention. It's been a beautiful experience so far and I am grateful to have her as a guide and mirror on my life journey.
I highly recommend Alicia but only if you are ready and willing to do the work on yourself. She is NOT for you if you are looking for someone to tell you the answers, step-by-step instructions on what to do or how to solve your own problems. She acts as a mirror that helps point you in the right direction, but you still have to do the work. She won't do it for you and THAT IS UBER RARE in this world.

Two years ago, I lost my husband to cancer. It was quick and left me foundering for life in my "new normal." Alicia told me to come to Ecuador for a retreat, to get my soul back. I resisted, thinking I could cope on my own, but when I got to a place of almost total numbness and lacking the ability to make even the most minor decisions, I looked Ecuador up on a map and wrote to her.
I arrived lost, broken, sick, and feeling more alien and alone than I have ever felt in my life.
Ten days later, I am transformed.
There is so much to say about this journey. Alicia crafted each day to meet my changing needs. We met, one-on-one, and her gentle, relentless questioning opened places inside me I didn't know were there. I shed pieces of myself everywhere -- during beach walks, watching whales cavort in the ocean, meeting locals, eating simple food, and giving myself over to healing massage and other deeply personal and emotional experiences. One day, near the end of my visit, Alicia told me to look at myself in the mirror. I didn't recognize the woman who looked back at me!
I can't explain what happened. I only know that my life was over and now, thanks to Alicia, it's beginning again.
I feel centered, open, at peace, and, most importantly, HAPPY -- in a way I didn't think was possible.
Whatever your situation, whatever you think you need to clarify in your life, Alicia can guide you -- if you're willing to take the first step.
This was a life-altering experience, and I am forever grateful.
