OUR RETREAT INCLUDES THESE ACTIVATIONS:
YOGA, MINDFULNESS & MOVEMENT ARTS
Together, we will harmonize body, heart & mind through movement, meditation, and breath practices. We’ll explore ancient traditions that help you thrive in a modern context, while creatively embodying & expressing the heart’s capacity to guide you through life with greater awareness, adaptability, and ease.
HEART TO HEART DHARMA DISCUSSIONS
We’ll drive life’s questions deeper into the heart of understanding, uniting science & spirituality. These juicy workshops will help align your heart and mind, expanding your possibilities.
SACRED SOUND & SONG
Our explorations in vibrational resonance will help you harmonize with the frequencies of love, free your voice, and express your heart’s truth, in tune with the rhythm of all life.
Learning from ancient Central and Southern American traditions, here we imbibe the heart-opening medicine of Cacao while bathing in the vibrations of sound and intention. We start each Cacao Ceremony with a Dharma Talk.
DEEP IMMERSION IN NATURE
Immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring beauty of Zipolite, where nature's wonders converge to create an idyllic backdrop for your transformative journey. Nestled along the pristine shores of the Pacific Ocean, this magical haven invites you to awaken your senses and reconnect with the natural world. Let the rhythmic symphony of crashing waves serenade your soul as you stroll along the sun-kissed beach, feel the warm sand beneath your toes, and witness breathtaking sunsets that paint the sky in vibrant hues. Allow the lush tropical landscape to envelop you in its embrace, as you find solace and inspiration amidst the swaying palm trees and vibrant flora. In Zipolite, nature becomes your guide and companion, igniting a profound sense of connection and harmony as you delve into the depths of your being.
We’ll enjoy 3 delicious and wholesome plant-based meals per day, with unlimited coffee, herbal teas from the garden & triple-filtered drinking water. Extra snack purchases are available.
TIME & SPACE FOR REST & REFLECTION
We offer this fertile ground for you to process and integrate your experiences and surrender into softness.
INTEGRATION & AFTERCARE
With ongoing support and guidance post-retreat, discover how to integrate the insights into your life after our week together, as the journey continues to blossom within you.
THIS JOURNEY IS OPEN & INCLUSIVE TO ALL
All activities are optional. No experience is necessary. Though some gentle preparation is encouraged (we will provide this information when you inquire about booking).
You are invited to honour your needs, your space, and your heart’s knowing. Of course, the alchemy is in the sharing! We’ll be co-creating an intimate container - a loving and encouraging space to connect more deeply within and with each other.
Nestled on a hill overlooking the beauty of the Pacific ocean, Pachalegria offers remarkable views and modern accommodations. This brand new retreat centre provides comfort, safety and beauty. Built on the foundations of love and respect towards the workers, artisans and the environment, the energy of kindness and community can be felt as we enter the premises.
The retreat center offers two yoga shalas, which will be the main areas for our teachings. You will be immersed in breathtaking views and the soft salty breeze of the ocean while the sound of the waves gently rock you to sleep after every day of transformation.
A short walk will lead you to the beach, restaurants and shops where you will be able to enjoy some time off to catch a sunset or stroll through the colourful streets of Zipolite. You will be greeted by sincere smiles and friendly locals who enjoy the simplicity of life in this community who welcomes people from all walks of life. Zipolite is very safe. It has often been referred to as a haven for societal “misfits”. Here, we welcome you as we are! To this effect, Zipolite is home to the only nude beach in Mexico. Nudity is optional, of course, but while walking down the beach, you will encounter souls who have decided to merge with nature and express themselves without fear of judgement. You will find a community that supports and nurtures each other where all are welcome to just BE!
