New Year Meditation Retreat in Chacala, Mexico

New Year Meditation Retreat in Chacala, Mexico Dec 29 - Jan 4th, 2019

Jack & Olive Retreats is excited to be coordinating the perfect end to the year and a centered and calm start to 2019 on a transformative retreat with world-renowned meditation teacher, Light Watkins and Kiwi yogini Claire Robbie.

Spend 6-nights at an eco-retreat center nestled between tropical jungle and the pristine sandy beach in the Riviera Nayarit, on the Southern Pacific Coast of Mexico. This experience has been tailored to rejuvenate and rebalance, while we reflect on the past year and set intentions for the year ahead.


If you’ve yet to learn Vedic or Transcendental Meditation, you can experience comprehensive training with Light in this lush environment, away from distractions of everyday life.

Or, if you already practice either of those techniques, Light will teach “Rounding,” which is an advanced meditation technique that will deepen your practice and provide even deeper un-stressing.

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


To help you unwind further, yoga teacher Claire Robbie will lead daily restorative and vinyasa yoga practices that will enhance your experience, opening body and mind.


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.


You will be part of a beautiful New Year’s Eve ceremony that reflects the magic and power of the New Year. We’ll also have a special group meditation as coming together at this time of the year with shared intention and energy can have profound impacts on our lives, our communities, and our universe.


You’ll enjoy evening knowledge talks with Light, an inspired community of likeminded people and the easy rhythm of the area. We’ll make sure you have plenty of time to unwind. Additional activities like whale watching and local tours are also available.


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