Tours and Activities
There will be an included Day Trip tour to visit a local Guatemalan village. This excursion will involve shopping at a market that is bustling with local artisans: a great way to bring some souvenirs for your loved ones back home and/or some special mementos of your trip! This will be an optional excursion & those that wish to stay at the retreat center instead can relax by the lake, canoe, practice yoga, read & enjoy the beautiful grounds of the retreat center.
Meditation and Ceremonies
We will begin each day with a short morning meditation to get us centered for the day. We will be participating in an Indigenous Mayan Fire Ceremony. This ritual includes foundational teachings about the Mayan calendar day count and the co-creation of the sacred fire. In the age-old custom, you’ll use cacao, candles, cinnamon, myrrh, copal (tree resin) and the appropriate herbs to honor the energies of each day in the Mayan calendar.
For those interested, there is also an option to book a 15 or 30-minute personal reading with the spiritual guide which would take place after the ceremony. Please inquire in advance for this add on! (not included)
Breath-work Ceremony to release & renew will be also offered, guided by Kseniya who is an experienced Shamanic Practitioner. She will also facilitate a Cacao Ceremony to assist with opening our hearts to pure love for self & for others. Guatemala is known for her incredible Cacao so this will be a very special treat for us all! The last night we will have a special ceremony to celebrate you!
