Spirit in Mexico
October 28-November 3, 2020
There’s magic in Mexico and we want to be a part of it. Our retreat begins in captivating Mexico City, described by Lonely Planet as, “the sun in the Mexican solar system.” We’ll spend our first two nights at a boutique luxury hotel in charming Polanco, an upscale international neighborhood known for its museums, galleries, and restaurants. Our time in CDMX will center around the robust culinary scene and will include a trip to Museo Frida Kahlo. Designated time will be set aside to honor your personal desires, from exploring the city’s art and anthropological scene, to shopping, to enjoying some quiet time at our hotel.
On our third day, we will make our way to Tepoztlán, a historic mountain town just 50 miles south of Mexico City known for its lush green cliffs, magical craft market, and creative energetic vibration. According to Mesoamerican legend, Tepoztlán is the birthplace of Quetzalcóatl, the Aztec plumed serpent god. Our time in Tepoztlán is centered around nature. Highlights include fresh air meditations, a hike to the ancient pyramid, El Tepozteco, walks through Pueblo Magico, traditional dining experiences, a full moon ceremony, and taking part in the festivities of Dia de Muertos.
Every detail of this retreat has been planned with care and pride. Our teacher, Carmen Guerrero Falcon, is a Mexico City native and is thrilled to share her homeland with you.
