The Adventure of Transformation and Spirit Exploration

Lago de Atitlan, Guatemala

Postponed until Spring/ Summer 2022

 

What if you could feel confident in making decisions about your life, feel truly connected to your heart, and feel at home in the world?

Would you travel to a magical place surrounded by volcanoes to get this renewed sense of self empowerment and to learn spiritual tools that would support you in your path now and into the future?

The ability to fall in love with life again and step into your path as a divine being is absolutely possible. Join a passionate group of women who are seeking grand adventure, exploring new expressions of being, and reactivating long hidden gifts of inner knowing.

Our women’s retreat provides a place for laughter, joyful expression, and spiritual practices that help bring forth your highest self. When we can revitalize that connection to ourselves, we have the power to create our dream lives.

In our modern world, the ability to practice connection to our inner knowing is stifled. We are told what we should want and the limited view of how to achieve it. When we open ourselves up to greater flow with the universe, then we are given more potential routes to fulfillment and happiness.

The Adventures in Empowerment retreat provides a safe space to learn and practice techniques of connection, vision, healing, laughter, love, joy, expression and maintaining balance.

We create a space for learning and letting go. A space to tear off the facade society has made us think we need to be accepted. The best time to begin living the rest of your life in a way you truly desire is now.

We welcome you to join our women’s spiritual retreat at gorgeous Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. We will spend healing time in natural places and support one another in intentional practices to bring us more fully into the versions of ourselves that we want to be.

Spiritual Community and a Supportive Environment

Our Facilitators

Krystalyn Norton has been facilitating yoga teacher trainings and cultivaiting life coaching for over 10 years. She dives deep into explorations and discovery with her clients and students. She holds space for co creating new ways of effective change and transformation, shares passion with anyone who has the interest and devotion for living their life to the fullest and shows up for self and others in a deep way. Krystalyn also supports students and clients as a meditation teacher, ceremony leader, artist and sometimes comedic relief. https://www.instagram.com/krystalynheartformations/ 

"Krystalyn is amazing! She is a very warm and welcoming person. She also is a great teacher! Professionalism, yoga history and research, a deep understanding of yoga, approachability, and a multi-faceted approach to teaching; that truly are embodiments of someone I value as a teacher."

"Krystalyn is a beautiful shining soul that exudes the essence of a buddha. Light-hearted, cheerful, extremely wise. She brought many thought and soul provoking insights into class, encouraging self-inquiry and self-reflection with every turn. Her care-free and childlike joy encouraged a container for trusting self-expression. Krystalyn's light spirit was the uplift we all needed."

"Krystalyn had a lot of wisdom, playfulness, and joy that uplifted my spirit. Her knowledge and love for deeper understanding of yoga and philosophy is very outstanding. I loved how open and encouraging she was while still holding a high standard."

Rosemary Kimble has been facilitating sacred ceremonies for more than fifteen years, assisting those who are seeking to go deeper on their spiritual path. She acts as a witness, holding space and sometimes healing moves through her to help transform. A keen intuition has allowed her to develop her innate ability to communicate with animals and the spirit world as an animal communicator and medium, gifts she uses working to help heal human animal relationships. Rosemary also offers her artistry in henna and body art to help empower women to better love themselves. https://www.visionsandreflections.com/ 

"Rosemary is a wonderfully talented and expressive multi medium artist. She has now begun to share another dimension of her being with us, while maintaining her stylish and creative approach. 
Unlike many today who are offering workshops after having been “certified” at a weekend seminar, Rosemary has done her work quietly and humbly for years and now brings us stories, gems and insights from over 15 years of study with indigenous peoples and years of working with animal populations in remote regions around the globe. 
Join her for a variety of enjoyable explorations into the ceremonial, esoteric and healing arts.You won’t be disappointed."

"Rosemary is a delightful, gentle and enthusiastic teacher/facilitator. Through her insights from the online "Honoring the Five Elements as Medicine" course, I was able to identify several practices that helped me to tune into the elements more closely and that I can use regularly. Rosemary understands the Earth's elements because she honors them and utilizes their wisdom both ceremonially and in her own practice. She deeply cares for the Earth as evidenced in her passionate activism outside the classroom."

"Rosemary is a gifted, insightful, knowledgable, and passionate facilitator. I have had the opportunity to attend multiple virtual workshops led by her, and every time I have left feeling empowered, and with such incredible knowledge on our workshop subject! Her workshops are interactive, fun, and Rosemary brings such beautiful energy to the class."
