Embodying Our Innermost Wisdom Retreat

Indra’s Grace Mexico Retreat 2023

Mar de Jade • Chacala, Mexico

You are invited to join Sandra Vanatko April 15-22, 2023 for an illuminating and rejuvenating week of self exploration in personal retreat. This is an opportunity to step outside the daily grind, everyday hustle and bustle, and to listen deeply, and to become present with that which is seeking your attention. It is a special opportunity to reconnect to your body, your breath, and to your innate wisdom and resilience.

About the Retreat

In the midst of challenging times, this retreat is an opportunity to slow down and pause, process and integrate that which has been surfaced by personal and global events. We will use this week to reclaim a foundation of being that supports physical health and vitality, emotional resilience, authentic presence, deep inner knowing, and peace. Sandra will guide you with the tools of yoga, including  hatha and kundalini yoga, breathwork, shamanic practices, somatic movement practices, dance, and meditation, as well as teachings from the great wisdom traditions.  You will be guided in an experiential journey all week to help rediscover your anchor your deepest inner knowing.

 

In addition to the rich retreat rhythm, you will be nourished by the elements the sun, sand, and sea, delicious, healthy, and wholesome meals, and the connection and company of new friends and familiar friends who will be equally as delighted to sit in silence together watching the sunset or sharing an exquisite meal in laughter and community.

Health and Safety Information

For over 40 years, Mar de Jade’s mission has been in service of the health and wellbeing of our community. During these times of  COVID-19, we are equally committed to ensuring the safety of our staff and visitors. At the start of the pandemic we closed our doors for over 4 months and during this time have dedicated ourselves to researching, designing and implementing an enhanced hygiene and safety protocol in line with the latest information released by the Mexican Health Authorities and the World Health Organization. Upon review of our protocol and extensive staff training, we have been granted the WTTC’s Safe Travels stamp, and official approval by the Nayarit State Government and the Mexican Health & Social Services Institute (IMSS) to re-open.

Vaccines

We are happy to report that the vaccine rollout in Mexico has now been extended to all adults (18 yrs+) and all of our staff is fully vaccinated. We highly recommend guests be fully vaccinated before traveling. Although vaccines are encouraged – both vaccinated and non-vaccinated guests are welcome. Thank you for doing your part to help keep everyone safe.

Mar de Jade COVID-19 Protocols

In the following link you can read more about the specific Health and Safety Protocols observed by Mar de Jade.

Covid Test Required to Re-Enter US

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has ordered that all travelers flying to the U.S. from abroad will have to show proof of negative Covid-19 tests before boarding their flight starting Jan. 26. The CDC said preflight testing is necessary as Covid-19 cases continue to soar and new, more contagious strains of the virus emerge around the world.

Travel Insurance

As of 2021, there is no legal requirement to purchase travel insurance in order to visit Mexico. No one will ask you to show proof of insurance at the border, and the Mexican government does not mandate travelers to have insurance. However, we do highly encourage you to purchase travel insurance which can include trip cancellation protection, flight cancellation, rental car protection, emergency medical coverage, and theft protection as Indra’s Grace and Mar de Jade are not responsible for any of these things.

Dorm rooms are a great choice for anyone on a budget who doesn’t need a lot of frills because they’ll be all day at the beach and doing yoga and don’t mind sharing a room with others (same sex) from our retreat.
