BODY WORK AND ENERGY HEALING IN TULUM, MEXICO
Hello! Jenn here. As we began to explore Tulum for our upcoming Ayurveda, Alignment + Yoga Retreat , we, of course, were enchanted by the turquoise waters and soft sand beaches… but we were also drawn to the energy that pulsates throughout this coastal paradise. Tulum , Mexico is home to people from all walks of life. Both locals and foreigners have connected here to create an amazing blend of historic traditions and modern ideas. Eco-resorts line the beaches with trendy restaurants and DJs, yoga classes are offered every day of the week in one of the many yoga palapas, and trendy boutiques allow tourists to find everything from Mexican blankets to new lines of organic clothing. What makes this all different from the tourist packed beaches of Brazil, Thailand and Costa Rica is the ancient Maya Culture. We love that Mayan traditions and rituals are still prevalent here. You can feel it around you, between the Ruins that line the coast, to the sacred underwater caves, to the people with ancestors that lived and farmed here.
This is what made Tulum the perfect place for our next retreat. At Papaya Playa Project we found this amazing mix of new and old. To unwind, the bar offers picturesque views of the Caribbean Sea, serves up fresh coconuts daily, and hosts DJs a few nights a week. When you need time to reflect, the yoga palapa is the perfect sanctuary for meditation and mindful movement. When you need a little refreshment, the three plunge pools on property give you the opportunity to cool down. And when you need healing that runs a little deeper, the Spa not only offers Swedish massages but therapies that focus on mind, body and spirit. The spa is unique in that it blends modern body work with sacred healing traditions . At the heart of the Spa and these offerings is the Spa Manager, Gaby Gordino. That's me and her pictured above :) When I went down to Tulum this past fall, I had the opportunity to connect with this brilliant healer.
Gaby is a Light-Worker and Priestess of the Universal Love & Compassion, her life experience started in her childhood, raised by an African Shaman Woman who taught her the Feminine Powers and insight of Light-work. She is a Holistic healer; her massages are channeled and goes deep to spirit. Her travelling has taken her to remote places like the Amazons, where she was initiated by an Amazon Indian Shaman and showed her potential in awakening humanity with the quickening of her mind. She has always worked with the Sacred violet flame for the transmutation of self and has helped many with regaining their inner sight and in their awakening process. Her work in Mexico has been very profound in teaching women to recover their inner Goddess power and working with the Crystal singing-bowls. She has also worked in groups and therapies in the balance of the energies.
