      Gardens of Paradise

    My husband and I recently spent several nights at Casa Werma, in the Casa Grande building. The house that we stayed in was outrageously beautiful, well-kept, and cared for-- boasting traditional roofing, en-suite bathrooms, a generous dharma library, and a cool respite from the afternoon heat owing to the thick, stone walls. The grounds, however, must be seen to be believed. Jurassic-sized banana trees, and cacti, avocados overflowing from trees, limes swelling on the branch, a cheerful rooster with his two hens clucking about, and winding rows of exotic flora and fauna thriving within a walled plot of 5 acres of land. Kai and Ryn, the co-directors of CW who live onsite, could not have been more friendly or welcoming. They answered any and all questions that we had upon arrival and throughout our stay. They provided us with a helpful map of the city, and even pointed out the best places to get just about anything-- from tacos, to atms, to hot chocolate, to sunscreen. Leaving the walled, compound of Casa Werma, we were delighted by the thriving market-- no more than a 4 minute walk away. Stand after stand loaded with fruits, vegetables, pastries, honey, shoes, pots and pans, clothing-- just about anything you could need is sold here, everyday. We were delighted by our time spent at Casa Werma, truly a precious jewel of Pátzcuaro, and we hope to visit again.

      Gratitud y hermoso cariño!

    Por fin estoy respondiendo uno a uno los correos que tenía pendiente. Y este correo es uno especial porque la experiencia en Casa Werma y las enseñanzas de Shambala Art, son y serán una de las experiencias significativas en mi vida por todas las sensaciones y aprendizajes que me ha dejado. Estoy muy agradecido y bendecido por haber tenido la oportunidad de vivir la experiencia y doy gracias a ustedes, Kai y Ryn, por haberme ayudado y facilitado mi participación. Para mi haber estado en el hermoso espacio de Casa Werma significo y significa un gran encuentro con algo muy especial, que no hubiera podido imaginar sino estando ahí, y que ahora me ha permitido nutrir mi espíritu y descubrir nuevos caminos llenos de esplendida dicha y belleza. Gracias por haber estado esa semana tan amorosamente con nosotros y conmigo. Estarán siempre en mi corazón. Las abrazo con gran cariño!! Y deseo que sean muy felices! Nos vemos en el futuro y en el corazón!! Daniel

      beautiful retreat paradise

    I recently attended a retreat at Casa Werma for 8 days, and cannot find the right words to describe how wonderful it was. From the food, the very comfortable accommodations, the beauty of the whole property, to the incredible women who run the retreat center. Everything was smoothly taken care of so that we had a very safe container to relax and practice in. Ryn and Kai, the directors of Casa Werma, have an excellent knowledge of the whole region, as well as the immediate neighbourhood and were very helpful with the many and varied questions and requests. Patzcuaro is a very special town with lots to offer, and is walking distance from Casa Werma. I am looking forward to my next visit to Casa Werma! Carolyn.

      A gem!

    I am in love with Casa Wema. Not only is the space breathtakingly lush and beautiful, the space skillfully held and cared for, the teaching that happens there is inspired and life changing. If you have the chance to try it, do it!

Why Retreat?

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

After the past two years of transition on every level, I would absolutely LOVE a retreat! :) Chelsee
