About this trip

Give your nerves a break on this mindful slow travel getaway to beautiful Baja Sur, Mexico.  


You deserve a rest before the holidays and this is the perfect, unique opportunity to shift from the stressed "red mind" state to a relaxed, calm "blue mind" state.  On this mini-mindfulness retreat, we will sink into slow travel, enjoying mindful yoga movement, mindfulness workshops with meditations, perfect for beginners, and blue mind therapy.  



Neuroscience-based mindfulness practice

Advanced and beginners alike will benefit from this guided mindfulness/yoga retreat with delicious, healthy meals and lots of ocean healing.   Our certified mindfulness facilitators and yoga teachers will share the philosophy of Blue Mind therapy.  With the help of Mama ocean, Bluemind therapy is a way for us to shift from the "flight and flight" sympathetic nervous system mode to the "rest and digest" parasympathetic nervous system mode.   


We offer several tools that you can take with you to continue to practice mindfulness on a daily basis. Learn how to be your own therapist as you gain wisdom on how to heal from the inside out and face whatever stressors life throws your way.

Arrival & Welcome Dinner
Welcome to La Paz

Welcome to Peace Hostel, the first and only boutique container lodging in La Paz! We welcome you with kombucha or fresh fruit infusion to ready your mind for a delicious restorative yoga session with local teachers.  


After yoga, our chef will prepare a special responsibly caught seafood dinner sourced fresh from our participating team of fishermen.  These fishermen are all members of the non-profit Mexican Turtle Group, Grupo Tortuguero de Las Californias.  Suppling their seafood is a great way to help reduce accidental capture and mortality of endangered sea turtles from fishing gear.  They use methods to reduce and release live and unharmed sea turtles that are accidentally caught and serve as leaders in their communities to recruit more fishermen to be ocean stewards.  


After dinner, we will gather around the bonfire for a special guided intention-setting meditation ceremony under a moonlit sky.  This is a chance to release what no longer serves you and manifest the life you want to create.
