AIRCRETE DOME BUILDING
BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO
SEPTEMBER 24 – OCTOBER 4 , 2019
Join your hands, heads and hearts in a joyous team collaboration with Natae Wellness Center! In a secluded rustic mountain village just south of the coastal city of Ensenada, in beautiful Baja California, Mexico.
OUR HOST: Natae Wellness
Natae Wellness Center is built on ancient Cochimi healing grounds (indigenous people of the Baja). There is a noticeably peaceful energy present with many places to walk and explore.
You’ll find holes in boulders that were used to grind flour, quartz and wild herbs and many other delights. It is not unusual for spontaneous music circles to pop up inside or outside, and there are plenty of places for quiet meditation.
