Finding Fluidity

by aramira

Join Alison Wu of Wu Haus and Shannon Sims of FoodArtLove in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico, from October 13-18, 2019. We’ll spend 6 days and 5 nights together at Pachamama Mexico, a gorgeous retreat center and boutique hotel just outside Todos Santos. Over 5 luxurious days we will explore the concept of Finding Fluidity. Our programming has been mindfully curated to support you in connecting the dots in your life back to your innate wellbeing, supporting a return to the natural cycles of your body and also to the rhythms of Mother Earth.

Our top priority for this retreat is to provide an experience that’s full of tools for you to take home to fortify your daily health practices while also allowing time for rest, relaxation, creativity and spaciousness. You will enjoy opportunities to learn new cooking and food styling techniques through demos and interactive workshops, as well as participate in daily classes aimed to empower your personal healing through meditation, conscious movement and breathwork ceremony. We will also explore Todos Santos and the surrounding area, share delicious organic meals, connect with each other, relax by the pool and the ocean, and, of course, have fun!
