El Misterio Retreat / Rainer Scheurenbrand

November 25 - December 2, 2023

It is an honor to invite you to the El Misterio retreat in Guatemala at Lake Atitlan! This is one of the most magical and humbling places I visited; what I felt there, I will never ever forget, and it became part of me.

We will be surrounded by majestic volcanos, right at the lake where the Mayan wisdom is stored in nature, hosted in a wonderful center with really tasty food. These times are not easy, and under each surface, there are well-kept questions, doubts and many surprises. So we offer a paradise-like retreat center in beautiful nature, being in circle with great people, and divine music that will be the setting for transforming ceremonial works.

We will have 4 music medicine ceremonies, Mayan fire ceremonies, a sweatlodge, music and sharing circles as well as chill time in a hammock, hot tub, lake or whatever.

I kind of always knew that one day I will come back here and work together with the Mayan Shaman, friend and teacher Walther Thomas Mendoza Cholotio, right at the place we met many years ago. He will hold the fire ceremonies and also offer additional Mayan readings if you want. I will hold the sweat lodge, ceremonies and circles together with my friend Andreas Model.

Right at Thanksgiving there will be the best surrounding to go on a deep journey, to ask the questions you need to ask, to be with courage, trust and love to learn more about the mystery of our being. I think this will be amazing and I am so grateful that we will raise our voices to sing and to pray and I know that we will be heard and answers will resonate in our hearts.

El misterio starts Saturday 25th of November at 4 pm and will finish never, but our retreat at Villa Sumaya will end Saturday, 2nd of December.  For details or to register, please write to  Learn more about Rainer’s music at
