Frans ~ Meditation and Culture Retreat with Star Meditations
Feb 21 – Mar 2 all-day

Join us on the adventure of a lifetime, as we journey on a 9 day Mayan Discovery Retreat to one of the world’s most beautiful lakes. You will fall in love with the natural beauty of the breathtaking Lake Atitlan and the three majestic volcanoes, Atitlan, San Pedro and Toliman that surround it.

Our Mayan adventure will begin in the gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage city of Antigua. We will spend 2 nights here. This is a must see destination, full of colonial architecture, cobblestone streets and picturesque surroundings. Our exquisite hotel is close to the city centre, allowing plenty of opportunities for leisurely walking, visiting museums and immersing ourselves in Mayan culture.

For the following 7 nights, our home will be a serene wellness eco resort, boasting spectacular views of Lake Atitlan. The resort offers beautifully decorated private rooms, natural lush gardens, sauna, solar heated pool and hot tub, a fair trade boutique gift shop, a juice bar and many inspirational, relaxing places to hide away with a good book.

During our stay, we will take part in relaxing meditation sessions including chakra breathing and sound healing as well as traditional Mayan ceremonies. We will explore the culture of the Mayan people.

There will be plenty of time for relaxation, massages or healing sessions, or to just soak in the stunning views from one of the many colourful hammocks. If you enjoy more adventurous activities you can kayak on the lake or hike up a volcano.

This is a very special retreat guaranteed to captivate the imagination and soothe the spirit.

About Frans

 

My journey with meditation began when I was 14 years old, a Japanese friend, Joe, introduced me to meditation. Joe gave me a precious gift, which I will cherish forever.

I am an experienced and registered Meditation Facilitator with ACHS (Australian Centre for Holistic Studies), and a member of the Australian Meditation Association, the Won Buddhist Centre and involved with Kriya yoga.

Star Meditations was born from the passion and joy I receive every day from meditating. I teach and facilitate a variety of meditation methods, to help people reconnect with themselves, balance their energies and create harmony with the divine energies of the universe, in order to control their stress, anxiety and depression levels.

Meditation does not have to be spiritual. Those not interested in the spiritual level of meditation can still meditate and reap all the stress relieving and relaxation benefits. I will teach you to experience life in a more relaxed way to attract a more beautiful, positive energy, which will result in a happier and healthier lifestyle.
