Your Hosts

Hello, we’re Kathleen and Jim Foland hoping to share a bit of what we have learned in the last few years and still open to learning much more!

We have been married almost 40 years and have done a lot of travel mainly because of Jim’s profession as an attorney in Kansas City, Missouri. We have two sons, two daughters-in-law and one (finally) grandson!  (Photos always available for sharing.)

Kathleen’s background in cosmetology, esthetics and as a salon owner and most recently as a health coach, all have contributed to this latest project of creating a wellness retreat in Playacar, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We also have operated a bed and breakfast and for 10 years owned three furnished vacation rental homes in Kansas City. 

Soon after Kathleen completed her certification with Integrative Nutrition, Jim was diagnosed with beginning stages of prostate cancer. Always interested in more of an integrative approach to dealing with any disease, we participated in a Hope4Cancer program in Cancun.  As time progressed, Jim showed some improvement but then we needed to pursue another approach.  He is now working with a combination of allopathic, Chinese medicine and alternative methods to address his overall health.  He has improved which is also partly due to the education of more mind, body and spirit modalities including meditation and conscious breathwork.  Stress is a killer and his profession as a trial lawyer  is not exactly known for its serenity and calm approach to life. 

We hope to share with you some of the resources in this area of the Quintana Roo region of Mexico, practitioners and resources for this mind, body and spirit approach of balancing health for fun, happiness and joy.     

We need to be reminded of daily practice of gratitude and reaching out to others to express talents and skills that increase our connection to one another.  It is a daily gift we need to give ourselves and others for our earth and each other.
