Spring Equinox Magic Retreat
March 16th - 22nd, 2023
If you are ready to be held in a safe space to journey into yourself, then this retreat is for you.
On this journey you will . . .
Have time for movement and meditation with guided morning sessions and a movement space 24 hours a day with mats and rollers.
Experience two guided sacramental journeys
Enjoy the Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of Ajijic. Walk the malecón (boardwalk along the lake), experience the local farmers markets and enjoy the shops and restaurants.
FOOD! 10,000 tacos! One of our favorite parts of traveling is eating delicious, healthy, and authentic food. We've designed this retreat to give you many choices! From home cooked meals at the retreat location to visiting the finest restaurants in Ajijic, you'll have the opportunity to create your own food adventure.
Rejuvenate your body during our spa day at the local, natural hot springs located right by Lake Chapala - the largest natural lake in Mexico. Soak in private hot springs filled with beneficial ingredients like flowers, oatmeal, and minerals. Finish it all off with skin nourishing mud (and fun pictures!) This day also includes a 60 min. massage and an on-site meal.
Do less and allow for more! Plenty of time to choose what your mind and body need. Allow for more spaciousness. Less structure and more discovery. Choices in how you want to spend your time. Allow for spontaneity. Allow for listening to your body's wisdom. Allow for peace and quiet. Fun and play. Allow for your emotions to show up fully.
Be surrounded by humans who lift you up, who see you, hear you, believe you, and stand with you in your journey.
And much more!
This retreat is for you if . . .
You love to travel and it lights you up thinking about getting away to a beautiful destination full of rich culture and history, making unforgettable memories, and giving yourself the gift to journey and integrate.
You hear yourself in one of these statements and want to
explore your subconscious.
- "I am ready to discover something deep inside myself."
- "I am interested in plant medicine to enhance my experience of life."
- "I think there might be more to life."
Your movement patterns lie within the range of "walking my dog" to "advanced yoga classes 5x per week!" Gentle, adaptable, powerful movement for all levels to assist with integration.
You want to be in community with other awe-inspiring, supportive humans who will see and hear you
You are tired of the "Go, go go!" hustle and are ready for intentional time to rest and listen to your body and mind's wisdom.

OnixBloom, I still have questions . . .
Q: Is it safe?
A: Yes! Ajijic is home to one of the largest expat community in Mexico. 911 works just like in the states, we're close to very good hospitals, and we'll be staying in a safe neighborhood in a gated home.
Q: Are our accommodations private?
A: Yes! We're staying in a beautiful, large Airbnb with a private heated pool and jacuzzi.
Q. You said all levels of movement. Do you really mean it?
A: Yes! Our movement opportunities will give you choices and progressions for wherever you are in that moment. It is YOUR practice, and you can always go to a grounded rest or do what feels amazing to your unique, glorious body.
Q. What is transportation like?
A: We'll use private, trusted drivers. We purposefully are staying close to Ajijic so we can walk to almost everything.
Q. I have unique circumstances, how do I know this program is right for me?
