The Jaguar and the Sea

Welcome to Onalinda!   This experience has it all – spiritual, music, art, culture, sustainability and one of the most beautiful and mystical locations in the world.

The focus is on the merger of each of these elements to create something truly special and unique.  This festival celebrates the magic of Mexico honoring each of these components. This edition plays into the natural wonder of Careyes allowing us to experience all that this spectacular location has to offer. From it’s stunning properties, private coastline, delicious restaurants, and natural wonders, we will explore throughout the event.

The theme this year is Alebrijes or Spirit Animals, a story which will be tied into each day’s celebration. Shamans around the world have looked towards the wisdom, guidance, and symbolism of spirit animals for thousands of years. Alebrijes derive their meaning from Zapotec cosmology where according to the sacred Zapotec calendar, we all have a tona – an animal that accompanies us throughout our lives. It is believed that this companion influences and shapes the very core of our personality as we organically adopt and acquire the character of that specific animal we’ve been assigned at birth.  In Zapotec culture, their beliefs are rooted in destiny and manifestation and it is the union of the animal with the human where this merging of personalities takes place.

Throughout this year’s celebration, we will explore the different animals that will encompass each night’s theme and connect with their inner spirit animal guide as we journey together throughout each day.
