The secret for success is unity & a shared vision

The secret for success is unity & a shared vision

After several years of traveling around the world to lead spiritual retreats, we were abruptly “immobilized” in Zipolite, Mexico, during the first wave of the COVID 19 pandemic.

During this time of upheaval, all our projects disappeared one by one, giving way to a large empty space in our lives and our agenda. It was really challenging. Not just for us but for the whole world as the news were massively broadcasting confining rules and limitations and the necessity of a lock-down. Although incredibly overwhelming, this moment was an opportunity to settle down, a precious time to listen to the true impulses of our hearts and take charge of our destiny. We pondered a few questions:

What do we want to create in this human experience?

What do we want to achieve during our short time on earth?

What vision do we serve?

You know, that kind of existential questions we ask ourselves when looking for a deep understanding. Questions whose answers took form of a sacred and holistic space where to actively contribute to creating a more conscious and free humanity.

This is when PACHALEGRIA was created.

A vision in our heart and our mind now materialized in a beautiful retreat center aimed at restoring harmony with Nature, authentic relationships and the foundations of a healthy lifestyle.

THE UNION OF TWO WORDS

Pacha is a Mayan word meaning Earth, World or Home. It represents our primary intention: to create a living space where everyone feels “at home”. Like Mother Earth who supports us without discrimination or judgment, our desire is to create a small world where each person is welcomed, loved and dignified by simply being themselves.

Alegría is a Spanish word that translates to happiness, joy, jubilation, ecstasy. It represents for us this urgency to celebrate and honor life in all its forms. The return to joy as the basis of our healing and evolution processes. Alegría is the liberation of natural joy beyond the ego, the mind, the complications of our modern lives. It is an inner breath that invites us to dance with life.

By combining these two worlds we want to honor both our earthy and primordial nature as humans, and our aspiration for elevating our consciousness and looking for that divine state which we all have within ourselves.

THE MAGIC OF PLAYA ZIPOLITE

Between the famous Mexican bays of Huatulco and touristic hub of Puerto Escondido, Zipolite is a little village beautifully set along a magical beach dotted with wooden shacks, palapas and intentionally rustic boutique hotels.

Not yet fully discovered by the radar of mass tourism, Zipolite is best known as being Mexico’s first nude beach and center of the hippie culture that made it notable in the 1970s.

Literally translated as “beach of the dead”, a local narration wants its name coming from the indigenous traditions of the Zapotecs who used to come to its shore and offer the bodies of their dead. Another piece of the puzzle confirming the sacredness of this place and its powerful healing energy.

Today Zipolite is a unique reality in whole Mexico – and probably in the world – with its beautiful combination of indigenous traditions, hippie and LGBT culture and an ever-growing expats community with people from all over the world. A place where people coming from different backgrounds and heritages simply coexist and co-create. Freely.

One of the few places on earth where beings are the most liberated and respectful of all.
