Abby Navarro and Ausar Hylton met in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, in Cusco, Peru. They equally shared the same vision of bringing people of color to experience the vastness of the Sacred Valley, Illuminating Color then began to come into form. Joining their gifts, hearts, and abilities, this Holistic Healing Sanctuary focused on unifying and empowering people of color came into manifestation. Interweaving cultures, ethnicities and ancient wisdom, something unlike anything else in existence has come to life. A new approach to conventional healing, a safe container for you to indulge in yourself.
As human beings of black, brown and Afro-Latino descent, we hold these retreats with the consciousness of interweaving spirituality, ethnic diversity, and ancestral wisdom. Diversity is in the soul of Illuminating Color and has been embedded into the Sacred Self Retreat. While bridging people, cultures, and worlds, we bring consciousness to the unification of human existence.
A visionary of this dream. Abby is a multifaceted spiritual creative, entrepreneur, bridge between worlds, activist, holistic therapist, philanthropist, and practitioner of the healing arts. She shares intuitive energy work, authentic movement, integrative therapy, guidance and empowerment. Her passion lies in transmitting unconditional love, service and ensuring that individuals have the integrative tools to continue their path after heart/mind opening experiences.

Who Am I?
I Am Illuminating Color, an Interdisciplinary Master Piece, an ever-evolving being which gives life to multiple sources of human advancement and expansion.
My mission is to guide the global majority through education of our interconnectedness while constructing a replicable system that awakens, empowers and sustains humanity in a sustainable way.
My vision is to create a harmonious symbiosis between people, places, cultures, and nature through the upliftment and empowerment of People Of Color; dissolving separation from the inside out.
So many situations have occurred in your life that have led you to read me now, at this moment in your life. Everything is perfect. Whether I spark something inside of you, or you feel me speaking to your Soul. Our connection at this moment is no coincidence as Spirit makes no mistakes nor does anything happen for no reason. If you feel called to participate or co-create, I invite you to contact us. Together we can create what you once thought was unimaginable.
Why Illuminating Color?
Real people doing brave things in this world. This space is for you, Sacred Soul Rebel. It has been created based upon your Soul’s prayers. Experiences that are going to ascend you like a spaceship through dimensions with love and grace. Self-discovery, education, healing, surrender. You come first, second and third; and that is the foundation of what is offered to you.
Hearing Our Ancestors Call
So often spiritual spaces elude the BIPOC community. Globally the percentage of people of color coming into spirituality is astonishingly low. We come from black, brown, and Afro-Latino descents, answering the call from our ancestors to create a real space of remembrance, connection and personal growth for the African diaspora.
We desire the unification and empowerment of all people, places, and traditions.
Our retreat is open to all who feel identified with our work, no one is excluded. We have interwoven spirituality, ethnic diversity, and ancestral wisdom into Illuminating Color. We wish to contribute to unity consciousness.
