Arrival & Welcome: Set Intentions for your Experience


Arrive at Morelia International Airport. Be greeted by the Noble Adventures Director of Collaboratives to transport you to our accommodations at Cabanas Legoverde.

We will get settled in our rooms and allow time for rest from the flights. Take time to unpack, relax and refresh, and/or explore the grounds around you. You’ll find that the natural beauty and tranquility of the Cabanas will draw you further away from your everyday life and deeper into peace.

We will gather to meet the rest of the team, and review our service project, its development, and its impact on the community.

For dinner, you’ll be served a beautiful meal in the cozy and friendly setting of the leadership retreat center.

Fire Circle - Christina and Hernani will work with the group to address any specific concerns or personal challenges that may have arisen.

On this first evening, we find that folks are tired from travel but often wired from sensory overload. All of this is normal, so we hold space for this first night for people to be gentle with themselves and decide what they need to become comfortable and rested for the week ahead.

Day 1: Entering Community as Servant


Morning Centering: We will begin each day with centering exercises for quieting your thoughts and enhancing your mindfulness of time and place.

Breakfast and Morning Group Learning Session: Breakfast will be served community style. Leaders will briefly begin with the foundational underpinnings of self awareness and its impact on leadership.

Service Project: Leaders will brief the team on the project, the impact of its completion, and the challenges that may be involved. The team will discuss and decide the best roles and responsibilities, with participants challenging themselves to step outside their normal everyday roles.

Lunch Break | Project continues

Return to Cabanas | Afternoon Integration and Rest: We’ve found that between the jet lag, early mornings, and project work, time for rest, reflection, and integration is an essential part of the experience. You can shower, nap, journal, or relax outside and take in the view. We will offer a guided meditation for those who seek deep relaxation and stress relief.

Dinner: We will be joined by the local community members to have dinner family style.

Temazcal “Sacred Fire Ceremony”: Ceremonies are found all over the world and have been used to promote health and spiritual growth for thousands of years. It persists as a tradition because it is safe, it is healing and it works - when done according to clear tradition and protocol.

Here’s the thing about a Noble Adventure—you will be in-country with an entire team completely dedicated to creating a unique, fantastic and memorable experience for you. It is also a developing nation, so things are always paradoxical - simpler and often more difficult. While we publish this schedule to give you a sense of how the days flow, please know my team and I will be changing things up along the way—all of it geared toward giving you the best experience ever.
