a ceremonial experience at ikal tulum to strengthen our connection with mother earth and all beings through art, music, practice, and ceremony

An invitation to step into our True Nature with integrity, align visions and take concrete steps toward the story we are here to tell. Regeneration will take a front-row role as the destination we aspire to arrive at a devoted relationship with our Earth Mother for the thriving of all life.

Through rituals, dialogues, workshops, practices, and performances, this year Restaura aims to elevate voices who are paving the way to regeneration and ignite practitioners towards action. To walk together means building bridges, joining forces, singing together, and sharing the devotion, knowledge, and wisdom that keeps us aligned with our True Nature.

Join us March 16 - 19 for an immersive experience with over 50 artists, elders, teachers, and practitioners in six parallel stages.



We begin with clearing the space, asking permission to all beings and to Mother Earth to create together, and each day we focus on the impeccability of our actions, words, and thoughts.



Each day at Restaura is devoted to an intention to align us with our True Nature

We begin with clearing the space, asking permission to all beings and to Mother Earth to create together, and each day we focus on the impeccability of our actions, words, and thoughts.





We begin RestAura on Thursday, listening and recognizing those who hear us, elevating our prayers, and allowing us to learn and grow along our path.
Guided by our Mayan elders and teachers, we begin our time together by asking permission from the land and its spirit guardians. This day is a gift to our community, volunteers, and everyone who wishes to come.

Access is free.





The first day at RestAura is focused on our body and actions: our physical temple home through which we crystallize ideas, visions, and intentions. Cultivating a physical practice through asanas, bodywork, prostrations, and other forms helps us purify our bodies and eventually leads to impeccable actions.

This first full day is devoted to our bodies to make our dream a reality. In the Mayan calendar, this day is influenced by the energy of Tijax.

Tijax presents a powerful opportunity to unveil our shortcomings and see ourselves reflecting on the other. It is an auspicious day to purify our bodies and end all that is not serving us.





On this day, we explore the purification of the word as a path to impeccability. Music is the highest offering to the great mystery, our guides, and teachers. Through devotional music and collectively joining our voices, we can remember, call our true nature, unify forces to belong, and declare the power of community and collective intention.

Through dialogues and word circles, we will uplift and weave narratives that show us the right path towards regenerating our relationship with the earth and all life.

The Mayan calendar is a day to reaffirm spiritual and material authority, speak our commitments and agreements, and pray for the Wombs of the entire cosmos. Honor the Uterus that unites the community.





RestAura will end with an invitation to purify the mind and thinking. On this day, we call for peace and clarity in our minds to sharpen our intention to benefit all beings in all that we do.

The material world is an illusion our minds must overcome to find balance, clarity, wisdom, and compassion. 

The Mayan calendar is a day to ask for clarity to return to us and for the veils of the material world and mind to dissolve from our thinking and walking. An impeccable mind leads to impeccable speech, which leads to impeccable actions. Ultimately, an impeccable mind ignites our True Nature, leading us to see everyone as equal, deserving of the highest blessings.
