Namaste Village

An Interfaith Contemplative community

Are you ready to
take the leap?

Namaste Village in Ajijic, Mexico is an interfaith contemplative community founded by NY Times bestselling author James Twyman. We focus on a wide variety of contemplative teachings and teachers like Paramahansa Yogananda, Thomas Merton, Rumi and St. Francis of Assisi.


If you’re looking for a safe and supportive environment to live in or spend the rest of your life, or if you're interested in just visiting, this may be the perfect fit. The Lake Chapala region has the second best weather on the planet according to National Geographic, was voted the number one place in the world to retire on a budget by CBS News, and is the biggest ex-pat community for Americans and Canadians in the world.

Please watch the video below to see if you’re called to join us.

You're invited to join us

The first thing you should know is that we are uncompromising - with love and with taking full responsibility for everything we think and feel. Our only goal is to enter into a direct experience of our True Identity and to Realize we are ONE with God and with all creation. The only requirement at Namaste Village is joining during our morning session. There are many other activities from yoga, A Course In Miracles, A Course of Love, etc. but our morning sessions are the heart of our community life. In the end we are here "to be TRULY helpful" to each other and to the world we live in.

How are we a contemplative community?

There is no single path we follow at Namaste Village other than the desire to enter into direct communion with the Divine. Many of our residents follow a Advaita path, others are students of A Course In Miracles, and many follow the path of the Christian mystics. Regardless of the form, our commitment to Oneness transcends all forms and includes them all.
