ZB by the Sea is the annual residential ZB program in Mexico. The name stays the same, but the context ever evolves. The program is designed to be a multidimensional experience of deepening one's understanding of ZB and creating a container for personal growth, rejuvenation and change. This is all done in an atmosphere and environment of support, both by nature and your peers, while using time-honored rituals to enhance the wonders and intensity of the retreat. Highlights include a Day of Conscious Choice, a Temescal (sweat lodge), whale watching, and a night of music and dancing.

This years theme will be ‘The Way of ZB - The Practice of Zero Balancing’. As we know the principles and even the physical practice of ZB are life enhanincg. This class will highlight and teach ways to make your ZB sessions even more healing and effective with new fulcrums to further this process.
Peter Woodgate will be assisting Michael for the week.
