House of Ayni is immersive, experiential, and community-centered. We take hard-working professionals out of their everyday and immerse them in nature, combining an open space for collaboration and co-creation with workshops in design thinking, storytelling, holistic entrepreneurship and tools for strategic leadership and personal wellness.

Who this program is for:


The program is tailored for those working to address social issues in child sexual abuse, violence against women, indigenous rights, sexual violence, gender equality, immigration rights, human trafficking and access to education.

We believe that by bringing together top leaders tackling these issues, we can accelerate impact for these initiatives in local communities and invest in those often working for others to take time for themselves and their growth.

design thinking, strategic thinking and resilient leadership


on your work and renew your purpose


relationships with other leaders and change agents in Mexico
