Meditation & Inspiration in Mexico with Light Watkins


Join us for a revitalizing and enlightening 8 days along the sandy beaches of the Riviera Nayarit on Mexico’s Pacific coast. Every aspect of this experience is specially tailored to rejuvenate, relax, and rebalance.



You’ll work directly with Light Watkins to learn how to master meditation

Learn how to cultivate a natural high through your daily practice

Enjoy morning yin yoga, sunset swims, spa services, or just lounge in a hammock

Be nourished with three healthy and delicious, locally-sourced meals a day

You’ll have hammocks, pools, and a hot tub at your disposal

Enjoy inspiring evening dharma talks on a variety of spiritual topics

All rooms have climate control for the perfect sleeping temperature

Connect with like-minded people from all over the world

Delight in an alcohol-free holiday








If you’ve yet to learn Vedic or Transcendental Meditation, you will experience comprehensive meditation training with Bliss More and Knowing Where to Look author and international meditation teacher, Light Watkins, in this beautiful environment, away from everyday life.

Or, if you already practice either of those techniques, you will be taught “Rounding," which is an advanced meditation technique that will renew and elevate your practice to another level. 

Each participant will be given a tailored transformational program that will have you coming away feeling deeply refreshed, energized, and inspired. 

All of the practices you learn on the retreat are designed for easy home use as well. 

To help you unwind further, we’ll have daily vinyasa and yin yoga classes that will enhance your experience, opening body and mind.

Visit Light's website to learn more about his work.




You’ll enjoy three daily delicious and nutritious meals in an open air-dining terrace overlooking the ocean. All food offered will be healthy, local, and when possible, organic - vegetarian dishes as well as fresh fish and seafood. Meals are prepared from scratch using many ingredients from the local organic farm owned and operated by the retreat center. Special dietary requirements can easily be accommodated.

You’ll also nourish your mind with daily talks on a variety of inspirational and spiritual themes, including getting your own questions answered. 

The atmosphere on the retreat is about connection, support, kindness, and creating as nourishing of an environment as possible for each and every retreat participant so they feel seen, heard, and welcomed. 





You'll enjoy daily inspirational knowledge talks with Light and an inspired community of like-minded people. You'll also have plenty of time to unwind with a variety of spa treatments. Additional activities like whale watching and local tours are available too.


On this retreat we will be encouraging limited cell and internet usage so that you truly have a chance to recharge and reset.


Wellness Resort & Yoga Retreat Center

The Retreat Center is nestled between the tropical jungle and the pristine sandy beach of Chacala, Mexico. It sits on the shores of Playa Chacala, a small Mexican fishing village with plenty of charm that still retains a traditional way of life. The town and surrounding areas have much to offer; from jungle hikes, surfing, whale watching, boating, and ancient petroglyphs, to the simple pleasure of playing on the soft sand and swimming in the year-round warm ocean waters.
