First House Move Into Alignment Portraits - Britt Crowe-56.jpg

Regeneration means a deeper connection to the land at our feet than we have known; and a commitment to its healing.

 

For five days, we will be immersing ourselves in the jungle of Tulum, Mexico, where there is a deep respect for ancient traditions and for the earth that they honor. Together, we will build community as we connect with local culinary and healing traditions. We will explore what it means to create a relationship with nature and to allow nature to heal us - as we heal it in turn through our mindful engagement with it and efforts to leave it better than we found it.

 

The highlights:

  • Daily meditation, yoga, and healing sessions

  • Time to explore and immerse ourselves in the magical jungle of Tulum

  • An exploration of ancient Mayan healing traditions + individual sessions with the local Mayan healer who will be teaching us

  • A cooking workshop with a local chef + exploration healing through food

  • The building of a strong community of women over the course of the week

  • Tools and rituals to take home with us

 the space

First House Collective Move into Alignment Holistika Tulum I-27.jpg

Stepping onto the grounds at Holistika is pure magic — tucked away in the jungle, far from the bustling beach crowds of Tulum, sun-spotted paths (lined with plants, trees and mantras) guide you through the property. Two pools, a treehouse, and plenty of perfect meditation spots will keep you exploring and discovering. This is a center flocked to by locals and travelers alike for its daily yoga schedule and healing sessions, which you are welcome to partake in in your spare time.

We will be eating all of our meals at Holistika’s Tierra restaurant, which is 100% vegetarian. You are also always welcome to explore restaurants in town when we are not eating as a group.


“THE MAIN INTENTION OF THIS SANCTUARY, IS TO OFFER A SPACE FOR THOSE WHO SEEK WELLNESS, PEACE AND HAPPINESS”

First House Move Into Alignment Friday - Britt Crowe-35.jpg

 Tulum is a magnetic place, for reasons beyond the restaurants and hotels that line the beach: they say that it is located at the major energy shifting vortex of our entire planet - meaning that the environment surrounding us there can amplify our own electro-magnetic field. Here, we are offered the healing ocean, natural cenotes spread throughout the jungle, wonderful people, and a door into different dimensions.
