La Duna Ecological Vision:
We believe in:
- All human beings are part of Earth, and the Earth is part of us.
- A deep connection to Nature is necessary for our individual and community's physical, mental, and spiritual health.
- Protecting Nature and consciously network with other Earth stewards to conserve
- The interaction of small like minded groups strengthens and weaves a nest of support for sustainable life models accessible to more people.
Our mission is to be a peaceful gathering place in Nature where people offer and receive educational experiences that are fun, inspiring, profound, and transformational.
"As people feel connected to Nature and to each other through direct experience, a sense of belonging and care develops naturally from this unity."
La Duna is immersed in an old and wise majestic cacti forest. Multicolored sacred mountains at her back open to an open blue horizon of sky and sea.
We collaborate with local families, non profit organizations, as well as small local businesses to provide a unique recreation and educational destination in
La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico.
