A Journey to Reconnection, Wholeness & Luminosity
through Wisdom Practices, Sacred Ceremonies, Drum Journeys, Yoga, Energy Healing & Mayan Adventures
Journey with us and return with clarity on your path, in flow with life, abundant with inner resources and practical tools, restored and transformed, so you respond to life, work and relationship from
a clear, aligned and deeply connected place.
Nicole Gnutzman, Transformation Coach, Reiki II, Cacao Medicine & Shamanic Practitioner
In the Mayan world, the five elements–earth, water, air, fire and sky/spirit–are our teachers, healers and guides for living a whole and luminous life with abundance, clarity, flow and creative life force energy.
On this retreat, you’ll find yourself deeply immersed in experiences designed to honor each element through embodiment practices, sacred ceremony and ritual, drum journeys, yoga, and Mayan cultural adventures on the sacred waters of Lake Atitlan, which the Maya believe to be the birthplace of all creation.
You will be transformed–renewed, restored and reconnected–and return home with practices and tools for inner clarity, connection, alignment and self-healing. You will feel whole and luminous.
I’m so delighted to share this journey and the transformative magic of Lake Atitlan with you as this was where I was guided on my own healing journey: first on a solo retreat to confirm my soul’s path and second to co-lead a yoga & transformation retreat at Villa Sumaya. It feels like a second home to me.
Villa Sumaya is a beautifully abundant eco-retreat, yoga and healing arts center. Experience its lush magical surroundings in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keIW3y-d6Vc
Each day of the retreat focuses on one of the elemental energies–earth, water, air, fire and sky/spirit–with embodiment practices, rituals and ceremonies that set the foundation for your own reconnection and self-healing. You will receive practical tools to take home, so you maintain your connection to Self and Source.
In addition to practices and excursions, there will be free time to swim in the lake, lie in a hammock, soak in the sun, visit local indigenous villages, kayak or paddle board, or indulge in a spa treatment.
At the end of the retreat, you may choose to visit the sacred ruins of Tikal with me on Feb. 23-25 (optional and for additional cost) to deepen your connection and inner healing.
When you return home, you will feel a deep connection to Self and Source and to your soul’s path. You will look and feel Luminous!
