Mexico has become our second home and the state of Oaxaca became the land to manifest our vision; KORAKOR Holistic Healing Center. The state of Oaxaca, is by far one of the culturally richest states in southern Mexico; It simmers with a passionate spirit of Zapoteco roots and a hint of Spanish colonial flavor.

. 

Our decision did not come easy. We thoroughly examined and considered many locations worldwide that could offer us everything we want. We deliberated on Guatemala, El Salvador, Indonesia, India and Nepal, but no other country could give us a better opportunity to live and build the dream.

. 

.

Criteria to be met included:

. 

Climate and land biodiversity

Oaxaca has a great deal of variety and diversity, so much so that, in a few miles, climate can change from desert dryness to a humid and evergreen tropical forest, where delicious coffee is grown. The state of Oaxaca is also a place of rich and diverse landscapes with pristine beaches, exotic rock formations, ancient ruins, and Spanish colonial architecture.

.

Language fluency

The Spanish language is one we have mastered and are fluent in which easily empowers us to convey thoughts and ideas. It is a language easy to pick up and understand, and is the second most spoken language in the United States.

.

Rural area, yet easily accessible

The city of Oaxaca is a major hub and a popular touristic destination. It has an international airport and major national bus lines . In addition, there is an excellent bus/collective taxi system that branches throughout the state.

.

Strong indigenous culture and identity

Oaxaca houses a vast variety of native culture from Zapoteco to Mixteco and some Mayan. Zapoteco alone has 27 spoken dialects and customs not recognized by their sister villages. The indigenous life is still strong and active yet facing threats of extinction with the younger generation.

.

6-month visa and a possibility of a residency permit

Entry into Mexico is achieved without great effort. They provide a 6-month visa upon arrival and is easily renewable, which is a great benefit to KORAKOR’s functionality.

.

Community life and social integration

When we first integrated a Mexican village in 2009, we discovered that there was a strong community life organized around the Tequio – social work for community welfare. In the same spirit, we will offer our community center as our tequio to the local community.
