    The Sanctuary - Vegan Community and Health RetreatsThe Sanctuary was a great experience for me, I went on a solo mission and opted for the shared accommodation. The people that I met at The Sanctuary will forever live In my heart. The days are structured to allow a lot of time to explore and enjoy your time in the beautiful Puerto Escondido. The sunsets, the beaches, the little hippie surf spots, the scenery. It's amazing. There are a lot of dogs that like to bark at night but it's something that you just become used to. The food is absolutely amazing, Connie is very talented, it didn't even feel like I was eating "vegan," the one thing I would do is go back and help in the kitchen to learn her amazing recipes. The practitioners that are offered are by far the best I've had in years. Thank you Peter and everyone who touched my soul for the lovely experience.

    Great experience! Good food and people.This is a good place to be creative in your healing and restoration as it does not follow any one meditation, yoga approach, or healing methodology. It is not upscale so don't expect fancy, instead expect good vegan food and a chance for self-reflection. Happy to be here, Anna.

    What Pete and his team have created here is truly wonderful. The Sanctuary is a deeply loving, spiritual and supportive environment in which to discover many healing modalities and practice the art of self-loving and healing. The sense of community here is strong and authentic, the people I have met feel like family and I will be back for sure. With deep gratitude and love.

    This place is about process, healing, finding yourself, and eating super healthy and tasty food. Just walking distance of three minutes from the ocean and really clean house, with great people, and amazing space to practice yoga on the roof. I give the sanctuary five stars!

    Beautiful place, friendly people from all over the world, meditation, yoga, Tibetan singing bowls (my favorite), raw vegan food, pretty gardens, close to the beach, and silence in the home for much of the time. Pete, the host, is a wonderful person.

    I stayed at Sanctuary for five weeks. What a wonderful experience. Eating Vegan for that time was a real treat. My objective was three fold: lower blood sugar (cut carbs and walking), loose weight (vegetables), and improve flexibility (yoga). I'm please to report that I was very successful in all three. I was amazed to discover how varied and tasty a vegan diet can be. The chef prepares the meals each day with the help of contributing guests.

    Peter (owner) and all the myriad of guest made my stay so very pleasant. Anyone looking to recharge and renew must include a stay at Sanctuary. Plan to stay awhile, you'll be glad you did. The pricing options which allow you to contribute your time to reduce your cost are exceptional. I can go on and on about what a wonderful experience it is to stay here.

    The long beautiful beach is a short walk away and features surf and awesome sunsets. The climate is just right. Also, as you may expect, the photos exactly represent the property as I found it. Do yourself a favor, plan to visit Sanctuary. I know I'll be back again.

    Staying at The Sanctuary changed my life. I thought I was only in for some health juices and learning a little yoga and meditation on the beach, but instead I had the chance to become a part of a community working together in learning and teaching. I've never felt so good physically as I did during my two week stay at The Sanctuary, thanks to the breathing work, the yoga, and the healthy diet. I thought I would never survive without meat or cheese, but instead it was actually really easy! Everyone that was staying there was very supportive, and I couldn't have had such a great experience without the staff and crew. Thank you so much!

    I'm very thankful and happy that Pete hosted me and made me part of his awesome project, even though I only stayed for two days and one night, I enjoyed myself there. Being part of the morning meditation was very special and the couple of times that I got to talk to Pete were very helpful for me as I saw my reflex in him. Blessings and all the best to you and The Sanctuary.

    The Sanctuary is a healing place in Puerto Escondido, Mexico. It is a place where people share different ways to try to achieve a harmony between body, mind and spirit. Lots of things happened since I arrived: challenges, laughter, tears, thousands of emotions, incredible food, amazing workshops, beautiful people, thousands of learnings and of course, the beauty of mother nature. Each second is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with ourselves, the others and the Oneness. Here, we try to do our best to build a healing community and share with the people interested. You have meditation, yoga, dance, chanting, retreats, rituals, fasting, and so many others possibilities. Everything and everyone is really interconnected, so if you feel the calling in your heart, please take the time to come to this beautiful place surrounded by incredible beaches and to try to heal yourself while you heal the world at the same time.
