There is only now. Right here is the only place your mind can go. And with the sand beneath your toes, the sun warming your back and the sounds of the undulating ocean soothing your soul, why would you want to be anywhere else than right here, right now.
The present has a way of hanging on to you at Present Moment Retreat located at Troncones Beach on Mexico’s Pacific coast just north of Zihuatanejo. While the retreat offers a collection of activities, its main goal is to wake up your consciousness to the ‘now’ that is happening all around you. If that takes an early morning yoga session, a wander along jungle trails or a sliding down the front side of a wave on a surfboard – you’ll let go of the past and future and find yourself firmly planted in the moment.
At night, you’ll be serenaded by the tree frogs and cicadas in your private, palapa-style bungalow – each given apt names like tranquility, bliss and serenity. The fresh sea breeze, crisp cotton sheets on a bed draped in wispy netting and a palpable soothing energy will bring you a restorative sleep. In the morning, the day unfolds as it will with the possibilities including spa-style meals, body work, meditation, a Qigong session, or counselling. If it’s action your heart craves – join in the drum circle, dance to the beat or commune with nature on a kayaking, snorkeling or horseback riding adventure.
It all depends on what will inspire you to live consciously; be it a 45-day cleanse or a three day power retreat. At Present Moment, your experience is exactly what you need it to be, at this exact point in time.
Doesn’t that sound like something you could handle...right now?
