Come join Jeanne Heileman at a sacred resort nestled in the harbor of the Lake Atitlan, described as “the most beautiful lake in the world,” by Alexander von Humboldt, and, “too much of a good thing,” by Aldous Huxley. Lake Atitlan has a power that is comparable to the Ganges in India, boasting the same healing and loving energy as the Divine Mother. Surrounded by three volcanoes, this uniquely picturesque and tranquil retreat center has tastefully designed rooms each featuring lake and volcanic peak views. Along the shores are a dozen villages where life and customs have changed little over the centuries, each offering a rich and varied tapestry of food, color, language and culture.
During our time together we will explore the Mahavidyas, the ten Tantric visions of the Divine Goddess, while being fully supported by our surroundings. These deities from the Hindu tradition are aspects of the Supreme deity, in the feminine form. Each has a lesson to teach us, each has insights for us to invite into our life and habits.
Each morning will offer meditation, pranayama and a deep yoga session, themed around one of the goddesses. The afternoon sessions will take you into deeper explorations of the same theme or unique practices with a new goddess. In addition to two planned excursions, you will have plenty of free time to explore the resort to kayak, hike, swim, receive a variety of distinctive treatments or explore the local towns. You will return home rested, inspired, reset with a new routine and life-long friends made from your trip.
