The Dreaming House

Behind a gated wall in the village of San Sebastian Xolopan, adjacent to the ancient city of Teotihuacan, lies the Casa de los Sueños.

Within its spacious compound are a dozen rooms decorated with the art of Mexico’s past, both recent and distant.

The rooms have modern conveniences, but no modern annoyances.  There are no “cookie-cutter” rooms at The Dreaming House. Rooms are large and feature ceramic tile and many unique wall murals and pictures add to the gracious, family atmosphere. One expects time to stretch and space to bend when at the Dreaming House.

In the Teaching Salon, adorned with symbols of spiritual significance you’ll find your safe and sacred space for the week. Here, we’ll share our dreams and visions, and deepen the remembrance of our true nature. Through experiences that blend ancient wisdom with personal discovery, the Salon becomes both a quiet sanctuary and a crucible for growth and enlightenment.

Miracles seem normal, and are. The Dreaming House (La Casa de los Sueños) a magical place for our magical time together.

Meet Your Facilitators

Before she began her entrepreneurial career as a storyteller, spiritual guide and mindset coach, Andrea was a busy stay-at-home mom of three active kids, two dogs, and a husband where she managed our large home and fast-paced lifestyle in the midst of a hustle and bustle urban metropolis. 

In 2017 everything changed. She uprooted our family from that busy urban city in a crowded state to a relaxed artistic town within steps of a naturaI playground. She returned back to the classroom to re-engage with her love for teaching while her then husband went on a quest to rediscover his passion for life.

Two years after their move, she went through a very traumatic divorce at the onset of the pandemic which had devastating ripple effects on her family and her profession as a public educator. This profound transformation took her to the darkest depths of her soul where she had to discover who she was and what mattered most to me.

In 2021 Andrea created Let Love Rise, as a way to process her divorce grief by publicly sharing her story. Her storytelling includes the 4 healing pillars of Let Love Rise which are a reflection of her ongoing healing journey: the moon, music, mindset, and the Magi.  

Along her journey back to joy, she has met spiritual teachers and guides who helped her transform her pain into the joyful, beautiful life that she lives today. She has also been awarded Teacher of the Year twice, became a credentialed Infinite Possibilities and Matrix trainer and a certified Order of the Magi card reader.

Today Andrea is passionate about helping other mid-life women who have been through a divorce to return to a place of peace, confidence and authentic joy.
