Join us for Sabbatical Sessions (what we affectionately call SabSesh): the perfect combination of a restorative and regenerative retreat on our stunning oceanfront campus complete with curated local experiences.
The SabSesh Experience
Scenic, Self-Curated Stays
SabSesh is the perfect reset. Whether you're working remotely, writing your memoir or engaging in the best of MEA programming, you have the freedom to make the experience your own – all in a spectacular setting.
Best of MEA Programming
Ignite the wisdom that comes from curiosity. Exchange ideas and reflections with MEA’s expert SabSesh facilitators. Access 20 hours of optional programming in mindfulness, structured conversations and movement.
Solo travelers love SabSesh because of the instant welcome into both the MEA and local community. Think summer camp where your friends are already waiting for you.
Make It a SabSesh
You have the freedom to make your experience your own — engage as much or as little as you like. While your experience is organic by design, we’ve included a special selection of MEA’s favorite practices from our celebrated Baja Workshops.
Whatever you’re searching for, we’ve got you covered. When you’re here, you’re home. Let us cook for you. Delve into inspiring conversation. Get out of your day-to-day life. Find the reset you need to regenerate.

Ultra Premium (why “princess room” was coined)
Premium (sought-after spots throughout campus)
Deluxe (“lux” and location for a song)
Cozy (shared bath or short walk to pool)
Located in the rural farming village of El Pescadero, an hour from the hustle and bustle of Cabo San Lucas, the rooms and grounds of MEA’s beachfront campus were designed by a team led by Oren Bronstein, founder Chip Conley’s award-winning design collaborator. We have four campus areas with multiple kitchens, pools, spas, steam rooms, a yoga and an art studio, meditation park, organic garden, and lots of cozy seating nooks for personal or shared time. Our rooms don't have desks, but we offer plenty of quiet spaces on campus to prop up your laptop, and common work areas to share. Our sunrise and sunset meter is over the moon. And we are walking distance from one of the sweetest little surf spots anywhere (go on, take a lesson!)
What does a week at Sabbatical Sessions look like?
Your stay will be self-guided from day-to-day and our weekly schedule will change only slightly depending on the expertise of our SabSesh facilitators. We’ve made it easy to participate in as much or as little as you like with regularly scheduled meals and daily sessions.
Expert SabSesh Facilitators
A gifted facilitator, Kay Scorah is an artist, poet, thinker, dancer, spiritual teacher and successful businesswoman. Her wildly diverse toolkit brings magic to her workshops. She set up her company Have More Fun to help people from different backgrounds and cultures to communicate more precisely and clearly through facilitating deep conversations.
Kay does an amazing job facilitating our structured conversations. She’s listening to the issues that matter to you and enables a rich dialogue for you to share your joys, concerns, hopes and fears. The magic of these conversations is born out of who shows up and what the collective is seeking, but all involved will grow and emerge wiser, stronger and more joyful from her sessions.
We will invite you to experience some traditional ways from the heritage of Buddhism, Yoga, Lakota, and Quechuan ways of life, together with practices based on the latest neuroscience research. We will include experiential practices such as sacred circles, dyad sharing, body movement, and journaling as ways to reawaken and be reinspired.
We will also invite you to integrate, in this time and space, any mindful experience you choose to have, among others, silent time, walks in nature, free flow embodied dance, or drawing.

Baja California Sur is one of the safest regions to visit in Mexico. And, we understand that in order to comfortably travel here, you need to feel confident in MEA’s health and safety protocols. We’ve thoughtfully redesigned our campus to support an open-air experience that will ensure a safe community — enjoying meals, conversations, optional educational programming, and other group activities.
