Insight Meditation is the simple practice of sitting still in silence and quieting the mind. The focus of attention on breath and body sensations, as well as on mental/emotional life, allows for the development of concentration and an open, non-judgmental awareness of our existence as it unfolds in present time. Ideal for individuals who who seek an alternative from the usual vacation experience.

The silent five-day residential retreats are offered in the Vipassana tradition also known as Insight Meditation and consist of silent sitting meditation, alternating with walking meditation and Qigong.
The retreats are suited for people who are curious about meditation and would like to develop a meditation practice, and for experienced practitioners who would like to compliment a five-day retreat with two days of out door activities in a pristine eco-system.
The retreats are hosted in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico - a gem of an oasis known for its temperate year round climate, located on the Pacific coastline between Cabo San Lucas and the capital city of La Paz.
