We walk out of the water in a sacred silence, which will be broken the following day. Each morning of the retreat begins with a Temple Technique movement class. This intensive practice helps us to unfold and become more embodied each day. The days follow with Water Incantations, Full Moon Ceremonies, walks into the desert and adventures to sacred sites. Private energy work, massage and surf lessons will be offered during free time. The nights are reserved for rest, restorative yoga, live music by the ocean, dancing around fires and sunset song circles.

About This Event

The Way of Water is a 5-day retreat into the wild, ancient self. With the element of water as our muse, we learn of the grace and power that flows through our own bodies and return to a place of balance, peace and deep remembering of self. Held by the ocean in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico, we unleash through ancient water rituals and incantations, sunset ocean baths, movement workshops, hikes through the desert, silence and song. The Way of Water is for those who want to experience the depths of their being, the interconnectedness of us all and the strength of vulnerability.

Venue Highlights

The Way of Water retreat is held at Yandara, a four acre stretch of beach located at a powerful piece of the ocean. The grounds include a salt water swimming pool, temples for our workshops, a secret cove for our incantations, and miles of wild beach. Enjoy an arid desert climate, where it is warm in the sun and cool in the shade. The daytime temperature never drops below 70 degrees, while nights feature cooler temperatures for a restful sleep.


The accommodations include your choice of a beachside single or double occupancy glamping tent with all of the amenities needed for a restful stay. We sleep under the stars, with the Sierra de la Laguna mountains at our back, syncing our dreams to the sound of ocean waves.

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

Retreat Guru's Vision

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.
