Lake Chapala

Welcome to Heaven's Borderland

Help support the experience of Namaste

Namaste Lake Chapala relies on help from people like you to continue sharing this message of peace around the world. Your donation will go to support repairs of the property as well as beautification. This is the only time of the year we will ask for your assistance, so thank you for your support.

Are you ready to
take the leap?

Namaste Lake Chapala in Ajijic, Mexico is a vibrant spiritual community founded by NY Times bestselling author James Twyman. We focus on a wide variety of non-dual teachings including A Course In Miracles, Esoteric Christianity and Franciscan Spirituality.


If you’re looking for a safe and supportive environment to live in or spend your retirement, 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 NatGeo, 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.

Tiny House Village

Tiny house living is such a big topic today. People are looking for ways to simplify their lives and minimize their possessions. Here at Namaste Lake Chapala we've built one of the first tiny house villages in the world! We've completed phase one with twelve 400 sq. ft. casitas, and will soon complete twelve more in phase two. Combine that with thirteen small apartments in our main area and you have a thriving village within the village of Ajijic. 

Would you like to join our tiny house family? Most of the houses are already taken but there may be availability at any time. Just reach out to us by email and we'll get you all the info you'll need:
