For those of you who are junkies for the healing arts (like myself) you may not know that all the way in Mexico, in a little town by the sea with a mere population of 1500, Casa Luz (or House of Light) is creating a hub for healing arts teachers and students to come together to share in a large array of classes and workshops.

Who would think you could be belly dancing to your hip’s content in Mexico, Tango-ing it up with well-seasoned teachers, having your pick of three different yoga styles, studying spiritual books, watching cultural films and attending events that range from India night with delightfully seasoned authentic Indian dishes to poetry reading to numerology sessions and more?

Only at Casa Luz!  This unique community space, started several years ago by part-time residents of La Manzanilla Nansee and Richard, is dedicated to spreading light and building an even  stronger heart-based community.  And when you visit Casa Luz, you may also be lucky enough to meet Nansee and Richard’s Huichol friends and be touched by their light.  They make their way down to La Manzanilla periodically, traveling from the remote Sierra mountains in Nayarit.  You may see them making their traditional huichol art and jewelry at Casa Luz and selling it in La Manzanilla’s main plaza at amazingly affordable prices.

So next stop…La Manzanilla!  Spanish classes at La Catalina School for your mind and healing arts classes at Casa Luz to tone your body and tune your spirit.  I would say this makes a pretty complete vacation, if you ask me!
