Get to Know Mena

"I was externally abundant, yet struggled internally. I went on a deep journey to reclaim my self-worth, trust my inner voice, and make aligned decisions."

Welcome to this moment!

I am Mena Teijeiro, a possibilities igniter, intuitive consultant and Booth MBA, the founder and host of The Florrest (retreat nestled in 153 acres of forest in middle Georgia), creator of Awaken Flow™ framework, the author of "The Alchemy of Words, and proud mom of my two teenage boys ".

 

I felt pulled between the world of business and consciousness, until I found common ground in nature where I offer sacred space for profound transformation. I became a bridge for it! I guide heart-centered souls who feel stuck or silenced by challenges to create a fertile foundation for their lives to be authentic, joyful, and flourishing.

My sun is in Aries, ascendant in Cancer, and moon in Gemini. I am a brave visionary who takes action, a nurturer who guides herself through instinct and intuition, and an energetic, outgoing, and sociable being.

 

In human design, I am a 3/5 Projector: “Experimenting with life and learning about what works and what doesn't so I can share it with others when they ask me for my advice. Guiding people through life experiences as no doubt I will have tasted a little bit of everything.” as defined by Projector Movement.

Menita is a bright and playful girl, always ready for adventure, excited to meet new people, and share magical moments with friends and family. She is creative, full of courage, and a beesy Queen. During challenging situations she will use her sting of light to bring back clarity and peace.

The truth is that I struggled internally the majority of my life, EVEN THOUGH I grew up in Argentina with abundance, in a loving family with 4 siblings, with a world-class education, trips around the world, and opportunities.

What was missing was my self-worth. I wasn’t taught how to trust my inner voice and make aligned decisions. I was trained that someone outside of me could know better than me what I needed.

It would have been hard to understand this. There was a consistent drive within me to be an excellent student, athlete, and kind soul. I was always fully focused on doing my best.

 

Yet, the distortion of energy expressed itself in an eating disorder, in fear of speaking my truth, IBS, chronic pain, and lack of boundaries that led to not knowing how to powerfully relate with the people around me.

When my kids were born, my inner child and joy radically blossomed. I connected deeply with my heart and realized that other than my kids, I wasn’t living a life aligned with my soul. This was my big awakening moment in 2009!

 

Divorce was extremely difficult and also revealing. In my lack of awareness, self-love, and empowerment, I had allowed my life to manifest in a way that did not feel authentic.

For the past 14 years, I have been immersed in the realm of development, consciousness, healing, and wellness. 

 

It was a big shift from the earlier part of my life as an economist, a Chicago Booth MBA, with work experience in an internet startup in Argentina with my brother, intern at the Institute of International finance, Business recovery in Pricewaterhousecoopers London, and experiences with investment bankers in Chicago and Buenos Aires.

 

I dove deep into retreats, taking courses, and getting certified in many modalities… It helped me heal and transcend limitations that I thought would last a lifetime. I was the eternal student loving the mystery of this Universe and also praying for the pain to go away.

 

I was also the teacher and guide… I hosted an in-person weekly event during all 2014 called Menafesting Community, ignited my Awaken Flow foundational program in Jan 2015 and have taught it to groups and private clients since, recorded meditations, presented my Tedx talk in Argentina, published a book of channeled poems, developed apps, and developed a retreat center.

Having shared custody for the kids, exposed me to changes that I did not anticipate nor was aligned with on many ocassions. For a long time, I hesitated on how to move forward with my work and projects. My kids experienced two very different households and they were less open to learning from me what I was so eager to share.

 

The love for our children runs very deep and this unconsciously made me stay small. It was a hidden gift, an opportunity to anchor to a greater degree in my self-love, my inner knowing, and show up fully to my life no matter what.

During the summer of 2020, when I was considering following my hearts YES to moving to nature in Georgia, my boys asked to move to their dad's in Tennessee. Until then, they had mainly lived with me. I am so grateful for that decade that I shared with them fully in Miami, and how I get to visit them regularly and share holidays with them as teenage boys. I am so proud of them!

I lived in many big cities for the first part of my life: Buenos Aires, DC, Chicago, London, NYC, Key Biscayne, Miami… 

Today, I am growing deeper roots at The Florrest, my sacred sanctuary in middle Georgia (90 minutes south of ATL). I developed it these last years with support of wonderful people, knowing how important it is to create an ecosystem that is integrated and expansive.

I offer private retreats, online sessions and courses, and opportunities for collaboration and celebration.

Thank you for finding me on this journey. I love creating spaces where we are seen, supported in our unique gifts, and can cross-polinate to bring harmony and abundance back to Earth.

Wishing you much Joy,

Spiritual Development since 2009

At first, I was seeking! At some point, I realized that I was always home in my heart. The seeking ended yet, I still loved connecting with beautiful souls and playing in the realm of energy, possibilities, and harmony!

At times, it feels vulnerable to share much I have invested in learning and in healing myself. I am soul grateful for all these teachers and guides who shared their knowledge and passion with me...

 

I am committed to sharing this knowledge, wisdom, and source energy with you to ignite you to create the life your soul came for; a life that blesses everyone.
