JOIN ME AT THE LUXURIOUS CASA TARA RESORT FOR AN INCREDIBLE 5-DAY RETREAT

FEBRUARY 17 – 22, 2018

Living your life to its fullest potential means taking the time to invest in yourself and your happiness.

Retreats are the best way for you to take time out of your busy life and slow down for a few days.  To really focus on what’s important to you.

In this retreat you will be guided in a kind and gentle way to open your heart, let go of old fears and negative reactivity patterns, so you can feel more peace and joy within yourself.

Each day we’ll investigate a new wisdom teaching to open your heart, through discussion, practical exercises, movement and meditation.

We’re not just skimming the surface, you’re going to know these teachings down to your core – transforming your heart and mind to be kinder, more forgiving, patient and tranquil.

The retreat will be held in La Ventana Bay, a small fishing village surrounded by majestic desert mountains and framed by miles of sandy beach.

Casa Tara is the newest addition to La Ventana. A luxury yoga retreat center, providing all the pampering you need and balancing that out with the simplicity of the Baja desert.

During your free time you can relax by the pool, enjoy a spa treatment or a leisurely stroll along the beach.

If you’re looking for a little bit more physical movement you can go snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding, kitesurfing, mountain biking or drop in on one of the many yoga classes offered at the Retreat Center.

ABOUT MEREDITH HOOKE

My teaching style combines traditional Eastern wisdom and practices complemented with 21st century neuroscience; giving you a solid and scientific foundation to build your practice upon. 

I started meditating in the late 90’s as a way to manage my stress, anxiety and depression.  I have been teaching others how to find more peace and tranquility within themselves for over a decade. 

My life has been transformed through these practices and it is my sincerest desire to help others transform their lives to be more peaceful and happy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I’m new to meditation or have never meditated at all?

Prior meditation experience is not necessary for attending this retreat.  All of the meditations will be guided so you will never be left wondering what you should be doing.  I’ll be there with you every step of the way.

I’ve heard that meditation retreats can be very intense, is this retreat like that?

I have done many of those intense retreats where we meditate for 8-9 hours per day; this retreat will be nothing like that.

We will be together for several hours a day, but I’ve also purposely left enough free time for you each day so you can relax by the pool, go for a stroll on the beach, have a massage and just take the time you need to reflect on what you’re learning and how you can apply these lessons.

What if I have physical limitations?

We will be doing some gentle yoga each day, which you do not have to participate in, if you don’t wish to.  We will also have very comfortable (bean style) chairs for you to rest in during the teachings.  However, the meditation room is up a flight of stairs and there is no wheelchair access.  If you have any concerns please contact me directly at Meredith@ZenSmarts.com.

Is Mexico safe?

I have been going down to Mexico for over 10 years and have never had any problems.  In particular, the retreat destination La Ventana is very safe.  It is mostly middle-class, by Mexican standards, and is very family-oriented.  Over the winter the population is more than half Americans and Canadians and the local residents happily welcome us.

Do I need a visa?

Visas are not required for participants from the following countries:  United States, Canada, U.K. and Japan.  Please check this website for further information: https://consulmex.sre.gob.mx/sanfrancisco/index.php/visas-traveling-to-mexico.

What if I need to cancel?

My fees are 100% refundable right up until the day of the retreat.

Casa Tara’s Cancellation policy is as follows: 10% confirmation deposit is non-refundable. Further deposits are refundable at 50% if cancellation is prior to 30 days before arrival. After 30 days all deposits are non-refundable.
