Riviera Nayarit Prepares to Celebrate Greeting Mother Earth Ceremony
Jorge Jimenez - CVB of Riviera Nayarit

April 20, 2017

This year Earth Day falls on Saturday, April 22nd and the Riviera Nayarit is preparing to celebrate the occasion with a Greeting Mother Earth Ceremony. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. in Nuevo Vallarta at the Beach Club owned by the Bahía de Banderas Trust (Fibba, by its acronym in Spanish).

The activity is an interactive contemplation of our relationship with the planet and the importance of caring for it as part of our own personal journey of wellbeing. Access is free for the general public and attendees are recommended to wear comfortable clothing.

The idea is to take participants on a conscious awareness journey of their deep-rooted relationship with the planet via a series of activities guided by three professionals who have studied and specialized on this vision of oneness, where the action of one person affects their surroundings as much as themselves.

This way the Earth is honored on Her day and it also becomes a call to the community to become more aware of each person’s capacity for change and the importance and need for daily activities to improve the environment.
