$2,800  |  9 of 10 spaces available

introduction

Join us in culturally rich Oaxaca, Mexico for a week of inner healing work and an adventure for the senses! On this retreat, we, as women, will tap into our higher selves and use this dynamic playground to reset our souls and give voice to our deepest aspirations. We will rediscover joy as we sample culinary delights at top restaurants, cook traditional Zapotec dishes, take a hands on workshop on natural dyes with a master artisan, explore Oaxaca City and its markets, and be inspired by beautiful natural hot springs.


about us

One Spirit Healing and Mystic World Finds are both female founded and Los Angeles based brands. Both founders have come together to create a mystical travel adventure that is both a healing reset from everyday life but also a great deal of fun! As One Spirit Healing curates your spiritual journey of self discovery for the week, Mystic World Finds will curate every other detail from the coffee beans used to make your coffee each morning to the brilliant local partners you'll meet. No detail is too small for us to have thought about and planned for you! We created this as the retreat we want to be on but have never quite found - spiritual shifting coupled with great food, cultural activities and of course, lots of mezcal!

One Spirit Healing is founded by Candace Veach who holds a Masters Degree in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture and is a certified yoga instructor and Thai yoga therapist. After 20 years of practicing healing arts and deep personal spiritual cultivation, she has created the Five Body Integrated Method of treating and transforming her patients' lives. Her newest offering is the Journey to Joy workshop, a 100 day adventure in self discovery. It is her mission on this Retreat to connect women to their own inner wisdom and show them their inherent potential. To learn more about her, you can read what her patients have to say here and listen to her podcast.

Mystic World Finds' mission is to connect cultures through life enriching artisan traditions. As Shaily Pathak, the founder of Mystic World Finds, cultivated her own spiritual growth across mystic traditions over 20 years, she began to find a spiritual thread that connects us all that is woven into the cultures themselves. This is what drives her passion for sharing the cultures and countries represented in the Mystic World Finds store. A healer in her own right, she sees the sharing of food, mystic traditions, nature and landscapes from these cultures as a way to promote the idea (the greater Truth) that we are all part of the same (one) humanity. She is thrilled to share one of her favorite places on the planet with you on this retreat.  To learn more about her journey and the wonderful artisans she works with, follow her adventure on Instagram.

highlights

Boutique Accommodation 
We are truly excited to dwell in this urban oasis for the week.  The property is close to Santo Domingo church in Centro, Oaxaca and will be at our disposal for the duration of our stay.  Each room has been individually curated and decorated. We will hold meditation and yoga classes on the rooftop terrace.  The property is a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner.  We will have all of our breakfasts prepared onsite and a few of our dinners as well.  

Spiritual Activations
Included is the Journey to Joy Workshop where you will learn about your Five Bodies, take a Shamanic Journey to reconnect you to that part of you that knows who your are and what you want, and devise a roadmap based on your soul's desires so you may continue your transformation once you go home. Yoga will be taught as a therapeutic method of self-care and you will be guided to understand your physical needs and limits so you can be safe in any yoga room anywhere.  Various meditation techniques will be shared. The week will conclude with a one on one energy session to help bring it all together and to give you additional guidance. Prior yoga and meditation knowledge, although helpful, is not required.

Textiles
We'll get our hands dirty in a natural dyeing workshop with an award winning and internationally recognized master dyer in Teotitlan.  We will also arrange a back strap weaving class as an optional activity during one of the free days.  Additionally, you will receive a guide curated by Mystic World Finds on where to find the best shopping in the city.

Food & Drinks
Oaxaca is quickly becoming one of the most sought after food destinations in the world.  We will sample all the best of fine dining to street food, which includes opening and closing group dinners at two of Oaxaca’s best restaurants!  We will spend a day at a cooking class which starts in a local market outside of Oaxaca City with a renowned cooking instructor. Lastly, we will learn all about mezcal and agua miel with our favorite mezcal aficionado in town.

Nature
An early morning guided hike around scenic natural pools and petrified waterfalls will inspire and lift your heart.

Market and City Tour
You will be introduced to vibrant Oaxaca City by Mystic World Finds' favorite guide. You will see the expected and the spectacular.
