A Day in the Life of a Zapata Retreat

Everywhere you look it is stunningly beautiful. This picturesque ranch offers the opportunity to become part of a beautiful story. A story that intertwines history, nature, preservation and all the people who have come to join in community to learn, heal and inspire. Carrying lessons back with them into the world to be shared.

This retreat is part of your story. An opportunity to immerse yourself in this breathtaking setting and feel into a somatic healing experience. One that brings you closer to knowing yourself better than ever before. An experience that transforms you by remembering the rhythm that connects you to nature, the horse and to others. That offers you the opportunity to slow down, feel into your body, see with your heart and become present to the world around you... To pause and breath in the beauty of it.
