We invite you to join us for our 11th Soul Nourishing Women’s Retreat. In 2018, we are traveling to Guatemala; 7 days at Villa Sumaya Center on the shores of astonishingly beautiful Lake Atitlan. Then a final afternoon and evening and overnight in historic, picturesque Antigua for sightseeing and shopping.
This retreat is our second to Guatemala, a country of tremendous beauty. In addition to the usual retreat activities such as yoga, iRest meditation, creativity experiences, dance and community sessions, you’ll be enchanted by the breathtaking majesty of the volcano on the shores of the clear teal waters of Lake Atitlan.
The power of Mayan folk arts will be one focus of this trip. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of optional excursions to the fascinating and diverse communities and their crafts/arts around the Lake. And we will have final afternoon and evening in Antigua, a World Heritage Site rich with history and architecture plus fabulous restaurants and shopping.
Prices vary from $1900 – $2300 (double occupancy) depending on your choice of accommodations.
