The Desert Rose is a unique occurrence in nature that has been a symbol of energy flow since ancient times. It has been said to encourage mental clarity, focus, self expression and to be the transmitter of deep wisdom found within. The Desert Rose is a symbol of protection and assists with overcoming fears with confidence.

Sanaa (@ladydork) and I created the Desert Rose Retreat after coming together to understand the importance of the many lessons we learned together.

        ⁃       Returning home to ourselves and our truth by being honest with self.

        -      That it is always safe to face yourself. 
        ⁃       Learning to shed the stories that no longer serve your journey.
        ⁃       Not running away from any uncomfortable feelings, discomfort or beliefs that are holding you back from your purpose.
        ⁃       Facing our stories with love, compassion and understanding.
        ⁃       Being kind and offering forgiveness to ourselves.


Like the Desert Rose itself, this retreat provides a space to be held, seen and listened to with love and zero judgement. It is a space to come entirely as you are and release what no longer serves you. After returning home to ourselves, we knew we had to share these tools with others. We created this space with you in mind. 

The Desert Rose Retreat is for you if you are ready to:

        ⁃       connect deeper with your truth and step into your personal power, thereby birthing your most powerful self.
        ⁃       live and honor your truth.
        ⁃       go inward and cultivate a loving, healthy relationship with yourself.
        ⁃       be self accountable.
        ⁃       create the life that is aligned with your truth.
        ⁃       identify and tap into your unique gifts for you to create the dreams you were here to birth. 
        ⁃       strengthen your intuition and deepen your trust.
        ⁃       balance your masculine and feminine energies to walk in harmony.
        ⁃       become your own best friend and truly love yourself.
        ⁃       say yes to yourself without guilt.
        -       honor and implement boundaries.  



This retreat is meant to help fall in love with your true self and seek your highest loving self. It means stepping into the power you thought you might have lost. During this retreat, you will be provided with tools to help connect back to your source, the love within. You will learn how to release all the conditioning, trauma, fears and insecurities in a healthy manner. This is a fresh start to step into your light and power.

The Desert Rose is both brilliant and resilient. The key to planting desert rose is to make sure you start out with fresh seeds. Meaning your new life will cost your old one.


About Sanaa Jaman

Dr. Sanaa Jaman was born and raised in Kuwait until the age of 17. Fluent in Arabic then moved to the United States to earn her bachelor's in Mathematics. Her journey was difficult at first, due to the language and cultural differences. However, in 2010, she graduated (bachelor's in mathematics with a minor in chemistry), and decided to pursue her PhD in environmental engineering sciences; which she earned in 2016. During her PhD studies, she discovered a love and passion for yoga through social media. Inspired by the art, she started her practice at home. 

A few months into her practice, she witnessed a physical and emotional transformation. She noticed that she felt more at ease with life's challenges and obstacles. Her practice has helped her tremendously in her healing journey; as a survivor of an abusive traumatic childhood past. She started to embrace yoga as a wellness lifestyle on and off the mat.

She hopes by sharing her journey and experience on and off the mat, she can help many overcome self-doubt, self-criticism, anxiety, depression, trauma while learning to be the best version of themselves. 

Sanaa is one of the most incredible teacher's I have come across and is an absolute honor to come together and share this dream together.
