In removing ourselves from our familiar surroundings, daily activities and responsibilities, retreats afford us the opportunity to see accumulated habits of distraction which build an internal wall between ourselves and our experience.
These unconscious patterns of unaware living shield us from the inherent joy of our true nature. Daily practice helps us to become aware of these habits, while longer retreats emphasize continued mindfulness. This allow us to sustain an unconditional presence and an awareness unbound by circumstance.

Daily breakfast, lunch and dinner will be included in your package, with snacks available throughout the day. Most meals will be vegetarian, with fresh fish and seafood served occasionally throughout the week.
Prana del Mar is located at the beach on 5 beautiful acres near the southern tip of the Baja peninsula. With the mountains to the east, the Pacific to the west, and the desert all around, we are comfortably nestled in a tranquil valley that provides an ideal setting for rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, and exploration.
With 15 guest rooms and suites, delicious cuisine, a spa with swimming pool and jacuzzi, a spacious yoga studio, and a stunning beach just steps away, you will enjoy a wonderful respite from your daily routine.
Continuing our commitment to environmental sustainability, the water that irrigates all of the gardens at Prana del Mar is reclaimed from each building and the soil is fertilized by the composting of organic material, so that nothing is wasted.
Todos Santos, Baja, the closest town to our home for the week, is a 40 minute drive. 2 excursions will be offered to this quaint town. A vortex where the Tropic of Cancer, Sierra de Laguna Mountains, Baja Desert and the Pacific Ocean meet, Todos Santos is a charming artist community bustling with galleries, cafes, and authentic Mexican stores filled with pottery and keepsakes. Also home to an abundance of Organic produce that will infuse the weeks menu.
