7:00 AM: Check-in to our Cabanas LegoVerde - You’ll be treated to delicious fresh squeezed tropical juices for the mornings. We will take time to get will get settled in rooms, and will allow time for rest from the overnight 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.

2:00 PM: Lunch and intention setting. Overview of the projects - We will get to meet the rest of the team, who will fill us in on the next day’s project, and about its development and impact on the community. We will then go directly to dinner, which will be served with the Zacapu Rotary Club members. You’ll be served a beautiful meal in the cozy and friendly setting of Zacapu.

7:30 PM: Fire Circle - Christina will work with the group to begin releasing any specific anxiety-producing concerns and discuss personal challenges that may have arisen. We’ll process what you saw and experienced during the afternoon traveling to our destination and begin diving into and setting your personal intentions for the week.

On this first evening, we find that participants 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 2

Entering Community as Servant

Leaders will become followers and followers will become leaders.

1-2 PM: Lunch Break | 2-4:30 PM: – Project continues

5:00 PM: 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.

7:00 PM: Dinner/Fire Circle – We will be joined by the local community members to have a roundtable discussion around commonalities and differences between cultures. Conversations will be created with provocative Q & A, but the conversation’s development will be shaped organically as people are open to fresh ways of thinking, dispelling misunderstood ideas and sharing hopes and dreams for the future. Review of the mornings teachings on Servant Leadership will be discussed. Storytelling offers powerful metaphors for life which can be understood in every language. We will utilize the commonality in life story to deepen cross-cultural understanding.

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.
