"The only word to describe Bird’s retreat is ‘MAGICAL’.  From the beautiful natural settings, which provide you solace with their magnificent beauty and energy as soon as you arrive, to the wonderful chalets situated close to the hot tubs and pool to soak in at night while stargazing, everything was exceptional. Bird’s exceptional compassion and leadership helped all the beautiful souls connect with each other and be open and vulnerable so that we could all heal together. The wonderfully put together sessions, shamanic journeys and hikes energized all of us and filled us with positive energy. The highlight of the trip was dancing together on top of the mountain to honor our own beauty, love and light. That is a feeling I will never forget. A close second is the food. Oh my God, the food! Sacred circle and Fire ceremony events helped us understand and hold each other in support. As someone who had not been open to receiving before, Bird’s message to us to be willing to receive was a beautiful gift." - Smitha
"Coming back from Bird's retreat  was truly a blessing. The best way I can describe my experience when it was all done was balanced. I felt a peace and balance I had not felt in a very long time." -Brayan
"Choosing to go on this Retreat was hands down one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my mind, body, and soul. I'm so enriched, so light, so joyful. The setting in Sedona, Arizona, was perfect. Bird is a beautiful teacher, and her knowledge of Naam Yoga, shamanic healing, and divination is a gift. Bird’s light, honesty, and love shine through her. The plant-based cooking was delicious and can be enjoyed by all, whether you’re a vegan or not. The food was plentiful, enriching, and good for the soul. I highly encourage everyone who is considering this retreat to take the leap and do it." - Erica
"Bird's Retreat was sooooo magical!! I want to just give a huge shoutout and thank you for putting together the most incredible dream-come-true Retreat experience I could’ve imagined. Everything was so incredibly nurturing and healing for mind, body, and soul. I knew food was included, but I didn’t expect it to be vegan food that was cooked with so much love! was so beautiful to connect with women at such a deep and vulnerable level.... such a gift." - Raquel

Sanadora Sanctuary's Commitment to Community Service and Authentic Integration:

At Sanadora Sanctuary, we are sincere and authentic in our integration into the community and desire for our programs to benefit and support, rather than extract from or exploit, the local culture, economy, and traditions.

We honor the ancestral land legacy and do our best to support the local indigenous and national residents of San Miguel de Allende with our programming, who we hire, and where our revenue is invested. We are committed to providing equitable pay to our support staff and wellness practitioners. We intentionally seek venues that are owned by locals rather than foreign investors, and we purchase our food, materials, and supplies from local producers and artisans whenever possible. 
We strive to minimize the “carbon footprint” of our retreats as well as our daily lives. For every retreat booking, we purchase carbon offsets in relation to air travel impact. We support a local carbon sequestering project at two sites in the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende. Our food, whenever possible, is supplied by local and organic growers and producers. We love to buy our cheeses from the "abuelas" at our neighborhood farmer's market!
We build long-term relationships with our support staff and wellness team and price our wellness services so the persons giving the services are abundantly compensated.
As full-time residents and community members, we see first-hand the need for respecting the culture and community that hosts our programs, and we invite you to join us in enjoying and appreciating its beauty and vitality.
