The Art of Abundance

Annual Manifestation Retreat

January 24 – 28, 2024 — Baja Sur, Mexico

What is "Abundance" and how can you get some?

You’ve worked hard, you’ve become an expert in your field, and you know you’re on the path to do big things in the world. You didn’t get where you are by accident. You’re here because you recognize when opportunity strikes and when trends begin to reverse. 

These are rare skills that few possess. But…

If you’re planning on blowing your career, wealth, and happiness out of the water…

…you know that you can’t settle for just recognizing opportunities. As the saying goes, what got you here won’t get you there. There’s something deeper. A way to interact with the world around you that goes beyond just book smarts and street smarts. 

To play in the big leagues, you’ll need to interact with the world in a different way than everybody else. Big wins—really big wins—are magnetized into your life, not forced. You can’t go searching for it; this level of success has to come to you. This is what people mean when they say they are “manifesting” success. 

The Art of Abundance retreat is designed to help you discover not just what you want to manifest in your life, but also how you’re going to do it. Believe it or not, there are a lot of people out there who have mastered The Art of Abundance, and we’ve invited them to share their wisdom with you through this remarkable experience.

Group Session - Tyler Valentine

"We ourselves are responsible for what happens to us, whether or not we can understand how. It follows that we can change what happens to us by changing ourselves; we can take our destiny into our own hands."

Introduction by Eknath Easwaran — The Bhagavad Gita

Not your typical retreat weekend

From the moment you arrive in Mexico, you’ll feel like an honored guest. We’ll have a car service pick you up and bring you to our luxurious accommodations for your weekend away with your new friends. 

As with all retreats hosted by Confidancia, you’ll be fully cared for on this high-touch manifestation retreat – knowing you are right where you are supposed to be.

This retreat was built for YOU!

As soon as your application is approved and you claim one of our retreat spots, you’ll receive a customization form to make sure you’re fully taken care of. From your food preferences to your activities, everything we set up was created to set the environment for your biggest dreams to be dreamed. 

Breathwork, yoga, healthy food, nourishing self-care, and a loving community of men and women who are integrating by the pool with you – all of it was created with you in mind.

Bring your dreams. 
We’ll help you make them real.

Art of Abundance Retreat

We see you. are you. have been there. are ready for you.

The real question is:

Are YOU ready to manifest the life you deserve?

"Holy shit... I did it!"

"The retreat asked the tough questions to dive in deep and get the tough answers"
Zoanne Clack
Executive Producer of Grey's Anatomy

"Here, I feel like I have a whole army of people behind me who really want me to succeed."

"The participant experience far exceeded my expectations in every amazing way. There is no question that we gain way more value than what we invest. For all the behind the scenes and front & center work that made it happen - THANK YOU!"
Amy Fennell
Founder of JACC Sage Consulting

"I am really grateful to have a safe space to do this work in. You all inspire me."

"Pure Brilliance! I arrived with so many questions. I had little information about how these questions would be answered. The moment I surrendered to the unknown and opened myself to discovery, the retreat POPPED! Three days felt like a long, fulfilling life. When it was finally over, I arrived. It was pure magic."
Christopher Michael
CEO of Christopher Michael Coaching

"I can't say enough good things about it. It has been top notch literally from top to bottom."

"It's hard to pick my favorite part. I feel the parts I liked and the parts that challenged me were equally beneficial. You told us exactly what we needed to know. It was magical to not be in control or have my phone."

We give you what you need to manifest your perfect life

The Art of Abundance retreat was built from the ground up to get your mind and body into a state of abundance and potential. Explore some of our retreat inclusions below to learn more.

Spread Out In Your Own Room & With Plenty Of Space To Roam

When you arrive to the Gran Sueño resort in Baja Sur, you’ll be brought to your own bedroom with a plush, luxurious bed and plenty of space to spread out and relax. 

We’ve bought out the entire resort, which means you’ll have plenty of privacy and room to relax, integrate the work we’ll be doing together, and envision the life you’ll build over the next year.

Get Into Abundance Mode With Group Manifestation Sessions

Planning for abundance is only a small part of the equation.  Strategies and scheduling fall short of what’s most important: cultivating an abundance mindset. 

We provide you with the guidance and group support that’s needed to help you focus your high-performance mindset on building an attitude that attracts and magnetizes success into your life with ease.

Group Integration

What you'll walk away with

By the time you reach the end of The Art of Abundance retreat, you’ll have everything you need to begin attracting more abundance and fulfillment into your life.

A “Money-Is-Everywhere” Mindset

Financial abundance is the first and most common desire for high performers. You want to be paid well, and fairly, for your work. The Art of Abundance will teach you the subtle skill of mastering your attitude toward money so you can demand what you’re worth and attract more financial opportunities into your life.

A Tactical Plan To Tap Into Abundance

Although cultivating an abundance mentality is an art, putting that mentality to work is a science. Throughout the retreat, you’ll be guided through exercises to build a specific, time-bound plan to achieve your goals. After all, the first step in manifestation is deciding what you want. This is where it all starts.

A Scarcity-Free Outlook On Your Life

Abundance isn’t just limited to the money in your bank account or how much “stuff” you have. Throughout the retreat, you’ll enjoy experiences that widen your perspective on what abundance truly means, how you can integrate it into every area of your life, and how you can enjoy deep abundance in every moment.

Hone Your Manifestation Techniques & Clarify Your Purpose In Work And Life

The Art of Abundance retreat is hosted annually in order to provide you with a deep check-in once a year around your priorities, your mindsets around money and success, and the resources you need to reach your goals. 

During The Art of Abundance, you’ll be gently guided through each of these elements of abundance. Our team, and your fellow guests, will feel supported and clear on how you’re going to manifest your ideal life, from your finances to your personal goals.

Integrate & Relax On Your Terms

What’s the point of living your dream if you’re always “on?” We structure the retreat to include plenty of downtime, from breaks to spa treatments to surprise experiences. 

These quiet interludes help loosen up your mind and body while you integrate everything you’re learning. That way, you can feel rejuvenated when you return to your sessions and energized as you go back home.

Gourmet Meals & 24/7 Snacks

Breaking bread together is one of our favorite parts of Confidancia retreat experiences. 

We fly in our favorite private chefs to create stunning, delicious meals, crafty cocktails and mocktails, charcuterie boards, and nonstop healthy snacks. We make sure your body is nourished and loved throughout your retreat experience.

Group Session

Answers to your questions:

Their dream jobs, significant others (after years of searching), dream homes, better routines & rituals, health goals achieved, higher revenue in their businesses, promotions & raises in their jobs, and more on the way.

Whatever is comfy for you. Some attendees dress up every day, others wear their pajamas – you do you. We’ll send a packing list closer to the event once we know the weather.

You’re in good company. We’ll have numerous repeat attendees along with plenty of newbies. 

You get your own suite & can share it with your partner or best friend if you decide to (you both save $2500+ if you do) but you can come solo & enjoy the quiet of your own space.

This is YOUR retreat. When you say yes to the retreat, you are saying yes to you. Yes, we will create experiences for you to grow, change, and uplevel but we will never force you to do anything you don’t want to do. 

Everything but your flight. All food, activities, bodywork, sound healing, abundance classes and training, calls before & after, intention-setting, integration, and car service to/from the airport.

Two options: La Paz airport is 1 hour from property (LAP) or
Cabo San Lucas is 2.5 hours from property (SJD). Travel details will be sent to you upon application approval and deposit.

We’ll provide you and other attendees with a private car service to and from the airport. We’ll ask that you arrive in a particular window of time to do so. Otherwise, you’re welcome to rent a car or get your own car service.

We’ll send you a customization form in your welcome packet with questions about preferences, allergies, and goals for the retreat. We customize the retreat for any/all allergies – and do everything in our power to support your preferences.

Yes, you’ll give us a $1000 deposit and we’ll set up a monthly payment plan for the rest of the payments. This will be finalized in your discussion with Melanie.

A journal, an open mind, questions about abundance, your expertise (in case you’d like to share), and a list of items you’d like to manifest. Feel free to bring a spouse, partner, or friend to share your room.

Absolutely! Check it out at gransueno.com

  1. You’ll fill out the quick application.
  2. Then hop on a 15-min call with one of the Confidancia Crew members. If this feels like a solid fit on both parts, you’ll get a link to put down your deposit.
  3. If either of you feel you have more questions or are uncertain, you’ll set up time with Melanie to discuss and make sure it’s a solid fit on both parts.

About Melanie

Melanie Spring is the founder of Confidancia and the leader of The Brilliant Rebellion. For 20 years, she has helped high-performing leaders build their personal and professional brands, giving them the tools to show up and show off. She does this through intimate retreats hosted by Confidancia, and group leadership & manifestation training.

Her background in growing her own branding agency over the course of 20 years positioned Melanie to begin helping her clients move from corporate branding and into personal branding.
