Wisdom of the Elements Adventure Retreat / Monica Graves

December 8 - 14, 2019



This is your invitation to P-A-U-S-E.

Breathe deeply.
Ask yourself – honestly – how would it feel to:

get a little wild and adventurous in foreign lands to expand your mind, fortify your body, and just let loose?
…fully embrace, embody, and express the passionate purpose within your heart?
…indulge your spirit as you surrender to a magic wonderland of lush mountain forests, jaw-dropping volcanoes, healing fresh waters, intoxicating Mayan cultural traditions, and the infinite Wisdom of the Elements?

You probably answered that it would feel Pretty. Damn. Good.
It should! You deserve nothing less.

Join your tribe of fellow soul voyagers in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala and experience this life-changing journey for yourself.

Begin each day with gentle sunrise yoga, meditation techniques, journaling processes, and soul-provoking conversation on how to courageously cultivate your dream life by harnessing the potent energy of the five great elements – Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth.

The cosmic insights you unfold in these introspective contemplative practices will be balanced and activated by “extrospective” adventurous excursions to sacred ceremonial sites, indigenous homes, healing sanctuaries, local Mayan pueblos and more.

Speedboats, pick-up trucks, winding mountain road shuttles and your own two feet will take you to places that dreams are made of. Color, texture, wonder, inspiration and enthusiasm await you in each moment!


As the retreat unfolds, allow yourself to be spoiled from top to bottom, inside and out, with:

• 7 days / 6 nights at the serene, luxurious lakefront eco retreat center, Villa Sumaya
• ALL locally-sourced Gourmet Vegetarian Meals
• Healing Therapeutic Massage and Reiki
• Mayan Astrological Fire Ceremony + Blessing
• Temescal Herbal Rebirthing Ceremony
• A 90-minute personal Mayan Astrological reading *before* the retreat to align you with this potent, ancient energy and prepare you for the adventure
• Traditional Mayan weaving and textile workshop inside a local, indigenous home. Experience the culture first-hand and make a piece to take home!
• Culture hike and Mayan history experience
• PLENTY of down time to laze in a hammock, swim or float in the lake, bathe in the sun, read, nap, and just BE



There was an ever-present sense of organic magic that tied us directly to the land, the air, the water. Each workshop was an amazing unexpected experience… provided an opportunity to create, the hikes were epic in the best way, and our [fire ceremony] was beyond exceptional. Very bonding!”

“Such a healing, cleansing, empowering retreat… just what I needed to come back into myself.”

“You are such a beautiful soul and I am so grateful to have you in my life. Absolutely love what you created with this retreat. So supportive and heart-opening.”

“Thank you for giving us this space to be! It was life changing!”

“From the moment of the opening ceremony… [the retreat] was highly creative and powerful. Instant connection to the elements.”
