Dark Room Retreats in Mexico

Cristina Espinosa and Kalki (Martin Neufeld) 

Open Dates

The Santosha Refuge is a holistic retreat center in Mazunte. Hridaya teachers Cristina Devi and Kalki purchased Posada Las Flores (across from Einstein) and transformed it into a vibrant refuge for personal growth, healing, and spiritual development.

Specializing in creating and guiding personalized residential retreats, the Santosha Refuge offers dark room retreat experiences, 5-day detox and rejuvenation retreats, personal retreats for individuals, and an annual 40-day silent retreat.

We have just opened 3 new temperature-controlled and well-ventilated dark rooms. They are specifically designed with insulated windows and doors, curved walls, and minimal furniture to provide a comfortable, dry, uncluttered, and quiet space for insightful and sustained practice. Dark meditation retreat experiences of 3 to 30 days are available for the beginner or experienced practitioner. Meal packages are available on request.

Interviews with Kalki are required prior to booking, either in-person or via Skype.

We look forward to accompanying you on your journey.
