Adventures in Empowerment

Lago de Atitlan, Guatemala
October 23-October 29th

A women’s spiritual retreat meant to inspire and heal. Through visits to the natural world and exercises in intention, love, laughter and maintaining balance, we create a space for learning and for letting go. We believe that joy and laughter are important parts of spiritual growth and intend to create a space for this whenever possible, as long as it does not hinder other emotions.

Workshops, Activities and Ceremonies

Cacao: in this intentional space we will share the medicine of cacao, which is stimulating and heart opening, as well as share our intentions and voices to create connection and joy. 

Te Mescal (Mayan sweat lodge): this is a cleansing ceremony which moves energy to make space for the new. 

Commune with Nature Excursions: these will be adventures outside of the retreat center into the mountains, forests, and waterways of Guatemala. 

Practices we will share during our time together: 

  • Exploring our innate ability for psychic awareness
  • Practical techniques for energy healing
  • Natural care of the body, mind and spirit
  • Shining a light on our shadow work
  • Sacred Humor
  • Soul Singing
  • Loving Ourselves Through Body Art
  • Song and Music Circles
