A Journey to San Miguel de Allende

March 24th - April 1st, 2018 • San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Come join us in San Miguel de Allende for a magical curated journey full of art, culture, music & culinary delights. This special gathering will feature Salon conversations on living a creative life, and
is being held during the awe-inspiring week of Semana Santa, Mexico’s memorable Easter celebration.

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild
and precious life?” Mary Oliver        

We’ve chosen to reside in this incredible city for parts of the past three years, soaking up its radiant light, scouting its seemingly endless charms, while basking in the warm & welcoming spirits of the Mexican people.

We’re excited to offer our 'inaugural' GoodWorld Journeys Salon in this beautiful location, which was recently rated by both Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure magazines as the #1 best travel destination in the world!

We’ve had a fun time carefully designing this Salon to guide you to some of the best adventures and places in San Miguel that we’ve gratefully encountered, while helping to set the table for reflective conversations on our “one wild & precious life.” With this colonial mountain mecca being a long-time haven for artists, writers, musicians, bohemians & cultural-creatives, our blended sacred time fiesta offers a unique invitation to a stirring & soulful experience.

“The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome
the ecstatic experience.” Emily Dickinson

As your Salon navigators, we’ll introduce you to a wonderful group of inspiring local residents, amazing couples and creative artists from Mexico and around the world. Inside lovely homes and stunning art galleries, over special meals and during rooftop sunsets, we’ll share stories, meet kindred spirits and reflect upon journeys of creative purpose and enduring meaning.

It will be a particular privilege and treat to observe the pageantry of Mexico’s Holy Week rituals,
with its processions, altars and “Passion Plays” that take place on the streets throughout the town.
Almost nowhere in Mexico is Semana Santa recognized with such reverence, tradition and awe as in San Miguel de Allende.

So give yourself a special gift and come have fun while nurturing your creative soul. There will be plenty of time to explore the city on your own, dip into natural hot springs, enjoy a massage, take a
hot air balloon ride, and expand your creative visions for the journey ahead.

“Then the doors of perception open slightly and the other time appears, the real one we were searching for without knowing it: the present, the presence.” Octavio Paz
Mexican Poet & Novelist

Dan Siegel

Jenny Yancey & Dan Siegel have been designing and leading purpose-driven gatherings, conversation retreats and global travel adventures for over 30 years.

Jenny experienced the transformative power of travel across cultures early on, living in Scotland as a child and journeying solo to study on a Greek isle at age 15. During college, she worked on human rights issues in Taiwan & China, and later directed a national coalition of organizations seeking peace in Central America, based in Washington, D.C. — where she met Dan in 1985.

Dan led his first international journey (to Cuba) with ten college students from UC Santa Cruz in 1984. After college, he was a researcher and author on global affairs at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington DC, where he designed & moderated evening lecture & conversation classes with noted authors, journalists and public scholars.

Jenny & Dan organized their first group journey to the Greek isle of Patmos in 1989, having honeymooned on the island two years earlier. Alongside working to advance social change, youth leadership, family philanthropy and civil society in the U.S. and other countries, they experienced the importance of making intentional time in sacred places to gain perspective, recharge, and renew.

Through GoodWorld Journeys, Jenny & Dan seek to help others to slow down, reflect and intentionally live more creative lives that feed & sustain the soul while fostering a deeper connectedness with our one truly global tribe.

Weezie Yancey-Siegel

Weezie Yancey-Siegel has lived in San Miguel de Allende since 2015. Having first visited the town during spring break in high school with her mother, Jenny, little did she know that she would one day call the radiant town "home."

Weezie is a program manager, event producer, and copywriter with experience in the social impact, marketing agency & education worlds. Her passions involve storytelling and community building — and fortunately she has creatively forged a freelance working lifestyle that allows her to do both.

Working initially as a bartender and barista in San Miguel, it was easy for her to become acquainted with many of the town’s residents and visitors. From local artists and business owners to fellow digital nomads and musicians, she has developed a wealth of friendships across the diverse San Miguel community.

Sharing the town's magic with visiting friends is one of Weezie's favorite things to do
— so she's especially excited to help produce this first GoodWorld Journey Salon in
San Miguel!
