Gorgeous Hearts presents Sierra Love; transformational coaching whilst walking in Aracena, a dynamic and richly rewarding experience in this unspoiled area of Andalusia. Aracena is a town nestled in the mountains of south western Andalusia.

Explore the depths of your inner world, supported by the beautiful surroundings, the peace and tranquility and the support of a deeply nurturing program. 

Transformational coaching whilst walking in Aracena - the beautiful sierra of Huelva 

Whether you are a serious hiking pro or you just like a short jaunt, there are routes for you and beautiful places to discover during your stay.

Transformational coaching whilst walking in Aracena can be offered from 90 minutes to three hour sessions for deep exploration into challenges, identifying options and actions and clearing the way to successfully achieve your goals and dreams. The coaching experience, coupled with the action of walking, reflecting your own journey, supports a confident mindset so you can discover new ways to apply yourself going forward. 

Walking along mule tracks from one picturesque mountain village to another, gives us the time and space to explore and of course, the opportunity to rest and take in the stunning scenery as well.  The route can have its challenges, like life itself, but it is also exciting and purposeful with the hiking destination, as well as a coaching one, on the horizon.

Autumn and Spring are the best seasons to book, however, if you enjoy the sun, summer offers the added bonus of swimming pools and trips to the beach. Seville is just over an hour away and so is the beautiful Costa de la Luz for the beautiful golden beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.

Self-loving Retreats in Aracena - Connect & Express  

Connect & Express is a retreat that combines a few modalities for a real self-loving treat. Holistic wellness coaching that addresses health, relationship and work goals as well as a rather creative and musical healing modality that combines vocal embodiment, connective rhythms and creative song writing therapy.  It's a great retreat to support you to explore your creativity and help you to be more confident in your expression. The intuitive intelligence of your whole body expresses through your connection and you get a deep sense of the healing power that originates by expressing from the harmony of your body, mind and soul. For this reason it's holistic and rooted in the fact that the energy that one aligns to, impulses the choices and actions that are made. Here is a break-down of Connect & Express:


  • Holistic Wellness Coaching identifies your wellness goals, explores the obstacles, challenges your perceptions and defines which actions you will take. It's about building a respectful, harmonious and self-loving relationship with your body, mind and soul.
  • Vocal Embodiment increases self-awareness and conscious presence through specific gentle vocal exercises which raise the vibrations of your body. It helps you to express confidently and powerfully with the love that you are.
  • Connective Rhythms quietens the mind, increases presence and body connection whilst improving focus and memory.
  • Creative Song Writing Therapy discovers the words that your soul needs to express.  It opens the door to your innate creativity and intuition and reinforces your commitment to yourself.
Connective rhythm workshops - Gorgeous Hearts

Connect & Express is suitable for all ages. No musical or singing ability is required.  It's effective for any person who struggles with their expression, self-confidence or self-esteem, for couples or families who wish to communicate more effectively,  or singers/performers who struggle with performance anxiety for example.



La Sierra de Aracena - The most beautiful and unspoiled part of Andalusia

"If you're looking for Bob n Brenda's Chippie or British Breakfast and curry on the coast go take a hike!! 🤣🤣this really isn't the place for you!"

Sierra Love transformational coaching and Connect & Express retreats take place in a small village of around 350 inhabitants called Los Marines which is very close to Aracena in the Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche, Huelva, South Western Spain. Aracena is the main town of this region and is about a 5 minute drive from Los Marines.  There is a theatre, a castle and caves to visit, and if you are visiting in the summer months, a wonderful outdoor pool that you can enjoy for only 1.50 euros per day.  We are a little over an hours drive to the beautiful city of Seville and about the same distance from the Costa de la Luz. Portugal is also about an hours drive.  


La Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche is famous for the black pigs that roam the fields eating acorns among elms, cork oaks and sweet smelling fig trees.  If you love nature, clean air, beautiful scenery, serenity and Spanish culture, you will love this fairly unknown jewel of Andalusía.
