Anand Ecoaldea is a fully equipped retreat space nestled in the heart of the Mayan jungle. The architecture is based on organic details, honoring the incredible environment and nature that surrounds them. The furniture, lamps, and other pieces that you can find around the place have all been handcrafted by local artisans, using only materials from the region where they are located. The center is located far away from any shops and restaurants. Expect tranquil scenery for you to connect with yourself away from distractions. The nights are magical and you will fall asleep to a symphony of crickets and relaxing jungle sounds.

The center has a luxurious, yet earthy feel to it. All rooms have an attached toilet and sink, and some of the rooms also have a bathroom with a shower. The center is run on solar energy and there will be limited use in the evenings. All rooms have fans, no air condition. Your room will be cleaned every fourth day to make sure you are constantly in a fresh environment. There are no opportunities for doing laundry at the center, but the cleaning staff will help bring your laundry to a nearby facility for an extra charge. This service takes a minimum of one day. They also have parking facilities available.

Program

Who is this retreat for?

JEELA welcomes all of you who are longing for community and are willing to embark on an inner exploration, to find and activate your own superpowers. This retreat is perfect if you are interested in music, yoga, plant medicine, and its powerful way of creating connection and healing. That might mean you are a musician looking to connect with other musicians, you are in the process of transformation, or perhaps you are looking to thrive in a creative community.

No matter what background or experience you have, they will welcome you with open arms. The sanctuary is designed to help you rejuvenate and remember your purpose in life. This retreat will connect you deeper with nature and create inner harmony and peace. Be prepared to reclaim your most optimal, authentic, and true self in safe and supportive facilities.

Music

Over the course of the 10-days, we have invited several musical masters to come and share their art and create workshops with us. It is a privilege to have access to such powerful channels of creation and an amazing opportunity to learn from those who have mastered their arts. Whether you are an experienced musician, an aspiring artist, or a curious beginner, we guarantee you will learn and grow tremendously. Our musical program consists of the following:

  • Kirtan (Bhakti)
  • Medicine music
  • Chanting
  • Vocal activation workshops
  • Drum circles
  • Drum making workshop
  • Sound baths
  • Shamanic rituals
  • Guided movement
  • Campfire tunes

We will provide a safe space for you to feel comfortable connecting with your own voice and freely expressing yourself musically. Anyone can sing, and everyone has a rhythm. Studies have shown that music therapy can be more effective to reduce anxiety than prescription drugs. This journey will open you up to all the beautiful tools you have within to connect to your higher self. We encourage collaboration with your fellow retreat guests, and there will be many opportunities to share, during the ceremony and at your final public Kirtan at the end of the course.

What to expect

Our intention and desire for "Jeela" mystical music retreat is to gather in community and find the connection to our higher self and fellow participants. This may unfold in many ways, through music, yoga, meditation, plant medicine, ceremonies, inner realizations, or simply a reflective conversation around the bonfire. We have all experienced some degree of isolation and separation in the current state of the world. This is not natural nor healthy to you as humans as touch, play and interactions are crucial for your wellbeing. Your hosts have been extremely fortunate during this global crisis, by creatively expanding in the community.

With our full hearts, we feel called upon to share this abundance with you, to serve, and to guide you. During these 10-days, we trust that you will arrive at a space where you feel the richness of your inner being and feel inspired to bring this vibration back to your local community. Leave feeling confident as an artist, healer, and space holder. We invite you to open your hearts, lett go of the mind, and immerse yourself fully into this experience together.

What you will take away

  • An extensive book containing songs and tools for further development
  • Your own high-quality medicine drum that you will make during the first week
  • A yoga asana practice
  • A welcome bag with several instruments and surprises
  • Breathwork and meditation techniques
  • Confidence to hold space and create your own ceremonies
  • A nourished body, mind, and spirit
  • A deeper understanding of ancient traditions and cultures

Sharing in ceremonies

We offer several ceremonies throughout the retreat, including Ayahuasca, Kirtan, cacao, and Temazcal, all facilitated by highly experienced space holders. These rituals can be powerful and life-changing moments. Throughout each of these ceremonies, you will have the opportunity to not only participate and receive but also to actively share. By sharing, you can challenge and change negative mind patterns, show courage, be vulnerable, and access personal freedom. How do you prepare for the ceremonies?

Following your dietary advice and food plan in preparation for your retreat helps to lay the groundwork for the medicine experience. By changing your habits, you show commitment to your healing, prepare your body, and demonstrate respect for the process. It also detoxifies your body allowing it to receive the medicine more gently. In general, they encourage you to eat whole foods preferably from an organic source with moderate to low levels of salt, sugar, and fat. Avoid the use of alcohol, recreational drugs, and caffeine.

Refrain from sexual activity and any other habits that you may use as a distraction. Quit unnecessary medications and completely avoid the use of any antidepressants. Consult your medical doctor and the team if you are unsure of how to prepare and eliminate medications. The purpose of the diet and preparations is to create an environment for your body and mind that gives the medicine a less obstructive path to illuminate and work with the areas that need healing. Setting an intention is fundamental to prepare for your experience.

In general, it is good to ask yourself what you want out of the medicine but to let go of any expectations. It is important to surrender to the process and trust that whatever is meant to happen is always perfectly aligned with your healing process and higher manifestations. Approach it with a humble heart, clear intention, and open mind and you will receive the right teachings. You will be in a very safe environment and taken care of by an experienced team.

Before the night of drinking ayahuasca, you will have had plenty of opportunities to connect with space, the participants, the shamans, and the music. We want you to feel safe and comfortable, and if you at any point decide against participating in the plant medicine ceremony, we will refund the money for that activity.

Yoga

Practicing yoga has tremendous benefits to your physical and mental health. It is known to ease stress and promote relaxation. Several studies show yoga’s ability to decrease cortisol levels, the primary stress hormone. It can help you cope with anxiety and depressive thoughts. On a physical level, yoga may reduce inflammation in the body, improve heart health and chronic pain. Yoga practitioners are reporting an overall heightened life quality and an increased awareness of body, mind, and spirit.

Your team at Jeela is very passionate about the benefits of having a daily yoga practice and is eager to share their knowledge with you. Each morning begins with a two-hour meditation, pranayama, and asana practice. You will be guided through the sequence by your experienced yoga teacher, Xochil. Your hosts, Renee and Josh, will give you adjustments during the physical practice making sure you are performing the postures right, keep the correct alignment, and go deep into the practice. Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced yogi, you will benefit a lot from your classes.

You will be repeating a similar Vinyasa practice followed by meditation and breathwork. The intention is to give you rituals and flows which you can take away and practice in your normal daily life. The retreat is packed with an exciting program. We promise you will not be bored and you will learn and grow a lot during these 10-days. Check-in is between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. and the opening circle starts at 3:00 p.m. with a following dinner and evening activity. Check-out is 12:00 p.m. after breakfast.

Food

They encourage light intermittent fasting during your stay by serving your first meal at 9:30 a.m. and your last one at 5:30 p.m., leaving a window for the body to rest and recover for 15 hours. You will breakfast with a superfood smoothie after your morning practice, followed by a bigger lunch and dinner, family-style.

The menu is consisting mostly of a high plant-based origin with lots of raw food, the occasional organic egg, and dairy product. They will make sure the food is in line with the dietary advice before the ayahuasca ceremony. They think it is pretty convenient that one of their team members is not only a total legend but also an Ayurvedic master chef. Over the course of the retreat, Foko will be treating you to heavenly and nutritious meals. As with everything Ayurvedic, there is always a method to the madness, with each meal carefully planned out based on your journey through the course and natural cycles.

Foko will also be offering personal consultations enabling him to individually cater to the unique requirements of each retreat guest. They will be able to accommodate most dietary restrictions. Most of their food is vegan and gluten-free, but they do occasionally use eggs, milk, soy sauce, and flour in some of their dishes.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Cancún International Airport (CUN). It is a very well connected airport, and usually has an easy welcoming process for travelers from most countries with a six-month visa on arrival. From the airport, you will have to take a taxi to the accommodation. It is a 45-minute, very comfortable, and safe ride. Tell the taxi driver you want to go to 'km 32 on Ruta De Los Cenotes' near 'Cenote Popol Vuh'.

On the main road, look for a big gate that says 'Madre Tierra' on your right side. Enter through this gate and it will be the second brown gate in about 200 meters on your left-hand side. The Google maps pin is very precise but keep your eyes peeled as the gate comes up fast and the cars tend to drive fast. Note that there is very limited phone service in the area so please inform JEELA CO well in advance of any unforeseen delays.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 22% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
