I have never felt the power of Nature and Her healing qualities as much as I did when teaching and practicing at Villa Sumaya. The land is sacred and magically healing.
In Praise of Villa Sumaya: Every winter since 2006, Villa Sumaya has enfolded our groups of creative writers & yoginis in her beautiful arms.
For both of us, the week at Villa Sumaya was a transformational experience, and I don’t often use that term.
"Comfortable space to rest and to feel the spirit while nurturing the senses. Wonderful services, staff and treatments. A gem to add in the heart of your spiritual journeys."
"The most wonderful relaxing environment that restores your peace and helps you appreciate life, you'll meet wonderful people and achieve a sense of calm not possible anywhere else."
"Villa Sumaya is one of those few places that you can go and finally let go of trying to get more of what you don't need. It is in this oasis of calm that I find I can use all the surrendered energy to make a difference with what I do have and with what I am.
My time at Villa Sumaya was the highlight of my trip to Guatemala. When I feel my patience fading during times of stress, now I close my eyes, picture Villa Sumaya, and remember all that I learned while I was there."
You’ve created a very personal, loving and gentle environment. It was a real honeymoon in such a beautiful place."
I also wanted to let you know that this has been one of the most perfect weeks I have ever experienced. Everything here was beyond my expectations. From the surroundings, to the people in the villages, the staff, the center, the food, just everything!
I've had many amazing adventures since those eight days at Villa Sumaya, and yet it still remains the place in the world that I think of as the most peaceful, spiritual and magical.
