5-Day Sacred Medicine, Healing and Spiritual Retreat in Xico, Veracruz
Rejuvenating doesn’t even begin to describe this retreat. Tucked away in the middle of the Cloud Forest in Xico, Veracruz, wellness seekers can dive into 5 days of yoga, sound healing and somatic practice. Basic and budget-friendly accommodation allows yogis to get in touch with nature while a traditional Temazcal ceremony cleanses the body and mind. Three delicious vegan meals are served each day, and the best coffee town in Mexico is down the road in case you’re in need of your daily fix.
A powerful space to dive into the beauty of integration of your body, mind, and spirit. This retreat is held with the intention of giving yourself the opportunity to listen deeply around and within. To immerse your soul and heart into a space of liberation, reflection, and connection. Kambo is a powerful tool to completely reset the body. During this retreat you will dive deep with three consecutive days of kambo for a complete mind, body, and spirit detox and restoration.
Instituto KiekariTerra A.C is an educational retreat centre for sustainable and resilient communities. It is located in the middle of the Cloud Forest in the town of Xico, Veracruz. The centre is located among mountains and rivers. Instituto KiekariTerra is an off the grid educational centre, so the exposure to electromagnetic waves is minimal and it is the perfect site for a digital detox.
The accommodation will be in a tent only for you, including a pad, sheets, and a pillow (KiekariTerra will provide all these for you ). You will sleep with the sound of the river and wake up with the sound of the birds. There is no electricity so it is perfect to reconnect with your circadian rhythms.
The weather at KiekariTerra is very changeable. The training taking place in October/November/February will experience more cold days during the mornings and evenings, so if you are sensitive to cold, make sure you bring warm clothes. In KiekariTerra they will provide blankets but if this is not enough for you, you can also book the training in warmer months like March, April and May.
There are three cats living in the house. Therefore, if you are allergic to cats this is not the best training for you. They also have two dogs that will be around while you are here, they are very welcoming and calm dogs some nights they bark, some nights they don’t, depending on their mood. If you have any type of situation with dogs, this is not the best training for you. There is also a rooster that sings early in the mornings around 5:30 - 6:00 a.m. If you are a light light sleeper maybe you would like to consider, this is the ranch life, you are very welcome to our land if this resonates as a good learning experience for you.
All of the students will get some tasks to do as Karma Yoga during the training, this could be keeping clean and tidying the shala, keeping the communal table clean, feeding the chickens, checking the sawdust in the dry toilets, helping set the dinner table.
You will enjoy 3 delicious homemade meals a day. The food is vegan/vegetarian. On your day off (Saturdays), only breakfast will be served.
If you are a coffee lover, the retreat centre is close to the best coffee town in Mexico, where you can find organic coffee during the free day.
In the retreat, they will provide fruit for in-between meals. If you need to bring some snacks of your preference you are welcome to do so, just keep in mind not to bring garbage (plastic bags, metallic cans, etc).
If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate them to the organiser when making a reservation
