This year we have carefully selected a special theme for each of our three Seduction of Spirit retreats. Each Seduction of Spirit includes the core elements of meditation, yoga, sutra instruction by Deepak, and other practices for inner calm and expanded awareness. In addition, each individual retreat will feature new experiences, individual and group activities, guest experts, and life-transforming tools and techniques related to the retreat’s guiding theme.

Throughout the year, visitors enjoy the gentle warmth, fresh ocean breezes, and welcoming sunshine. Perfectly situated between the glamour of Los Angeles and the laid-back lifestyle of San Diego, Carlsbad offers the charm of a European town with the amenities of a large city.
Known as the "Valley Isle,” Maui offers a friendly, welcoming spirit; a mild tropical climate; and dazzling landscapes. From the mountainous west to the beach-lined south, the island's incredible terrain is home to many treasures. Visitors can snorkel among coral and tropical fish at Black Rock Ka'anapali Beach, or see the unique volcanic red sand at the secluded Red Sand Beach in Hana. Hop on an eco-friendly catamaran and catch a glimpse of the thousands of humpback whales that migrate to Maui’s shallow waters each year.
Riviera Maya, Mexico
A tropical paradise just south of Cancun, Mexico’s Riviera Maya (or Mayan Riviera) extends nearly 100 miles along the turquoise waters of the Caribbean coast. Featuring relaxing white-sand beaches, ancient Mayan cities, and the world’s second largest coral reef, the Riviera Maya offers sunny, warm weather all year long. Seduction of Spirit would take place at the Fairmont, a world-class setting in the Mayakoba resort community.
