TAOlife Newsletter / January 2016 / TAO Mexico

Dear TAO Family and Friends,

I can't believe it's already February!

February, the month of Valentine's Day, is a good time to think of all the things you are grateful for: to focus on what you have, not what you don't and to focus on what you can do, and not on what you cannot. Let us build that loving feeling in our lives through a sense of gratitude.

In Mexico, Valentine's Day is referred to as "Dia de San Valentin". It is more popularly known as "El Día del Amor y la Amistad", meaning the “Day of Love and Friendship". The date of celebration is the same as the U.S date of observance, 14th February.

Mexicans attach a lot of importance to love and friendship. Hence, the day is an important occasion for them. It is traditionally a day when Mexicans profess love to their sweethearts. Those involved in a romantic relationship promise an everlasting love to their special ones. It is a time of celebration for unmarried lovers and married couples. As “El Día del Amor y la Amistad” is also about friendship, Mexicans use this day to express their gratitude and appreciation to their friends

Here at TAO, our communities are really taking shape. So far we have delivered just over 260 units, and are planning to deliver MEI and LAO this year. The weather seems perfect with the ocean is warming up, the pools are so lovely and the heat is just enough to make you head to the cenotes or for another frosty drink by the sea.

January was a busy month for us, with the TAO Ocean Meeting on the 19th, Homeowners Party on the 20th and then the HOA Informative Meeting that took place on 21st. Myself and the rest of the team would like to thank those that attended our productive meeting. A detailed account of the Informative meeting was sent out to all homeowners. We have also had several interesting events, including 2 visits to Yaxche, lunch in Tulum and the trip to Mahahual.

Also some more great news on the 21st we launched Room Service Menu, which seems to be working extremely well. There is more information including the times, contact number and menu further in the newsletter.

This month a large group of owners will be visiting Havana in Cuba, I would like to thank all of the people that are going! You will have a great time. We will all look forward to seeing the photos and videos of your adventures.

Looking ahead to March we have some big events coming up including;

  • • 4th-8th March- Yoga, Dance and Intuitive Healing with Dr. Jennifer Kelly, a therapeutic and innovative blend of yoga, music, dance and intuitive healing
  • • 19th March 11am-5pm. Up close & personal photography by Cindy Skeie , a photo expo at the TAO Wellness Center
  • • 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th March Tarot and Astrology Readings with Tegan, Practice opening you subconscious mind and interpreting patterns, symbols and elemental sequences of the tarot deck.
  • • 21st Equinox at Chichen Itza.

My quote of the month: The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that's what you've given me. That's what I'd hoped to give you forever - Nicholas Sparks
