Just to be given a bit of time to set my intentions for the trip ignited something special in me. A fire, a curiosity, a desire to keep creating and discovering. That’s what I was looking for when I came here and I found it.

It was wonderful. I loved meeting everyone, finding myself and feeling happy. I don’t have the words to explain it all. I feel so lucky to be able to share with everyone and have the opportunity to discover so much magic in the group and in nature.
— Mar, Cancun
I came to this retreat worried that I wouldn’t fit in or that I’d discover that in reality I was a “fake artist”. Writing that now after the retreat seems like such a ridiculously silly fear. This experience exceeded my wildest dreams. Holistika was the perfect start: so peaceful and serene. The women: so kind and supportive yet honest. Mix in the classes that offered clear, applicable, real world advice… add a dash of symbolism and mysticism from our altar ceremony and sound healing. It truly WAS a Magic Jungle Experience. I’m so thankful to the whole staff who shared their knowledge with us. Special shout out to Nadia, something about my chats with you just made things click for me. You are truly talented in helping others discover themselves which was a big goal for me during this trip. Thank you for everything!
— Danny, San Diego
It’s amazing how much a little positivity and encouragement can do. It’s great and important to meet other creatives.
— Ekaterina, Russia/Brazil
This experience was wonderful for me. I think we all have a small voice
inside our hearts that we don’t listen to all the time because of the noise in our day-to- day. This experience made that voice stronger and gave it
courage. I also feel the creative brainstorming in the Hot Seats really helps people with something concrete to do, a short-term goal to break open up the inertia and feelings of self-doubt and laziness. It was so great to hear each person’s stories and feel the power of being in a community of women of various ages. I’m so glad we created this magical bond here in the jungle where everything seems possible now.

This was the confirmation I needs to take the plunge and be my own boss. It’s not the norm and everyone in NYC is work, work, work. I knew there had to be more to life! You guys showed me there can be a balance and you have to stay true to yourself and not lose yourself in your job. I’m gonna go home and create from a place of passion instead of just worrying if it will sell. You’ve shown me how to start which is what I needed. You guys are all so awesome and relatable and I can tell you really care. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

El estar en contacto con otras personas que están en la misma sintonía es enriquecedor. Encontré similitudes y diferencias que me ayudaron a encontrar mi propia identidad. Antes de venir me preguntaba si los temas tendrían un significado real para mí, ya que me considero novata. Ahora me voy contenta y llena de ánimo; hoy estoy segura que puedo emprender sin temer al fracaso y que puedo hacer de mi pasión creativa mi modo de vida.

This experience was magical with this space and everyone involved. We were destined to all come together to share knowledge, love, energy and advice in this special place which is like an energy vortex. Thank you for the openness of everyone here and for the opportunity to be authentic and heard. This was truly an experience in the Magic Jungle.
— Marian, Miami
Me encantó estar en contacto con personas con gran talento y tanta
experiencia que admiro desde hace tiempo. Convivir con ellas y tener la oportunidad de escucharlas fue mágico. Por otra parte la gran sorpresa de conocer a mujeres como yo de otras partes y compartir nuestras historias fue muy enriquecedor. It has been a life-changing experience! En muchos sentidos: personalmente, emocionalmente, profesionalmente.
— Daniela, Mexico City

The Magic Jungle has been an enjoyable way to explore myself and others in a fantastic setting. It’s been an experience that will continue to resonate for a long time. It’s been an honor to witness the catharsis in one another.
Every person involved has been a critical component to the overall
experience. A big Hi5 to Ana, Maggie, Nadia, Aisha and the Holistika staff-
Michel’s laugh and the Mayan trombone in particular.
— Kathy, USA/Sweden
This experience has changed my life. Prior to this retreat I was in a creative block, and maybe a little complacent with nurturing my art despite wanting ever so badly to make it more of a focus in my life. I needed a different kind of nudge that my friends and family couldn’t give me. I needed a space free from the routine and stresses of my normal day-to- day to explore my identity as an artist and as a human, to discover new ideas that I may have never thought up on my own, to be introduced to topics I am not an expert in and to be supported by people who are going through the same rut as me. It was very inspiring to be around this specific group of women and just to be given a bit of time to set my intentions for the trip ignited something special in me. A fire, a curiosity, a desire to keep creating and discovering. That’s what I was looking for when I came here and I found it. Thanks for giving me this beautiful, happy, exciting chapter in my life! I’m forever
grateful!

What an unexpected, eye opening, truly magical experience! Ana and her staff created a warm, safe, and supportive environment that allowed to really think of myself and my life as an artist. The generosity of spirit
provided by the people and location of the Magic Jungle was a gift that I will carry throughout my future. I got really clear on my personal style for my artwork and exactly what I want to focus on for the next year. Thank you everyone from The Magic Jungle! I have a mountain of gratitude for your kindness and guidance! This week was priceless.

I'm a crazy intuitive lady known for leading Good Axe Designs, a different kind of design studio. People come to Good Axe with diverse needs, but all are looking for original thinking, design expertise, and above all, simplicity. Our team transforms complex ideas into meaningful visuals that tell a compelling story.

We are enablers for good. We innovate, collaborate and create with folks to inspire a wave of positive, socially conscious change. Together, we help you understand and express your story, your business, your vision.

We design good, for the greater good.


I'm a designer/artist/creative living in NYC. I grew up in Cancun, Mexico to a mixed family (American/Mexican) and went to school for fashion design at FIDM in San Francisco. 

My interest in fashion was always about storytelling and world creating and I knew I would need to have my own line to do that, so I started a swimwear line called Margarita Mermaid from scratch and taught myself production, business, marketing, online sales, photography and film production along the way!

In 2018 I felt the call to move in a different direction from Fashion and started a new project called "Seashell Spells", which combines my love of feminine mythical creatures, mystery boxes, magic, self-exploration and random acts of kindness. 

On of the most important things in my life is being fiercely loyal to what creativity wants to say through us, and following what our intuition is telling us to do in order to live our most fulfilled lives. I believe we're at a time where more than ever before we can invent our own jobs and lives and find the right people and customers to share that with, though it takes a lot of breaking of old thought patterns and outside expectations to follow through. This is one of my favorite things I like to share with you at The Magic Jungle!
