About This Center

Flor de la vida is a extremely beautiful piece of land located on the out skirts of Mascota., Jalsico. Nestled in the bottom of a valley surrounded by mountains,  flor de la vida is a retreat located far from any noise, people, or other detractions that could keep you from enjoying your contention with nature.  On the property you will find a beautiful piece of the Mascota River, with tons of intriguing basalt rock formations that where formed thousands of years ago, creating long geometrical patterns covering the cliffs, that paint a magical landscape/waterscape for flor de la vida.

 Constant cool air flows threw the valley with the river, which is natures kind of way of air conditioning for FDLV. The turquoise clear water is deep and calm enough to swim or kayak in. There are several hiking trails, with tons of great bird watching locations. Black chinned magpie jays, cooko squires, humming birds, and laughing falcons, just to name a few.  FDLA has a wide diversity of wildlife, and is the secret jewel of Mascota.

      Beautiful, clarity and connection to light inside

    This retreat place is beautiful! Surrounded by trees, amazing rock formations and river. It’s so peaceful and at night you can see all the stars. Mariana and Petie offer a loving stay and provide safe and supporting mushroom and bufo ceremonies. Petie gave us a sound bath by the river that was very relaxing and meditative. Mariana’s joyful energy made us feel at home. Thank you !!

The most difficult times for many of us are the ones we give ourselves. Pema Chödrön

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
