Feb 10, 2016

Event Navigation


Theme: Surrendering egoic mind to Heart / Divine Mind

We will discuss and offer teachings and exercises for surrendering our egoic mind to our Divine mind, from intellect to being, balancing head with heart.

Where is Lake Atitlan, Guatemala and why would I want to go there?

Guatemala, the land of eternal spring, is located on the southern border of Mexico. It is the only country in Central America that still has a largely Indian population, which still holds true to its Mayan culture, religion, costume, and community values.

Lake Atitlan is located in the heart of the Guatemalan highlands. It is located just a short boat ride from Panajachel, a good town for shopping. The lake is spectacular, enchanting, and ringed with volcanoes, mountains and Indian villages. It’s an amazing place to sit and be still, while enjoying the stunning displays of light upon the water.

Lake Atitlan, is our home for 5 nights, at the incredible Tosa La Laguna Hotel. The retreat center sits right on the lake, near the Indian village of San Antonio Palopa. Check out our amazing accommodations, Tosa, which gets rave reviews on Trip Adviser. Few distractions and little noise. Delicious Guatemalan meals are included. Wonderful garden setting for our sunrise and sunset yoga, guided meditations, and playshops. Also hikes, village visits and other options, with still plenty of time for reading, relaxing, and reflecting. We offer comfortable and clean accommodations, cultural experience, affordable travel, full country tour, gorgeous settings, delicious food, compassionate teachings, sacred ceremony and rituals, and personal service.

This trip is more than a yoga retreat, and will include a tour and cultural introduction to Guatemala and its amazing Mayan Indians. Roy lived in Guatemala for over 2 years, and speaks Spanish, and has already led 5 yoga retreats to Guatemala. We will also stay 3 nights in Antigua, 1 in Guatemala City, 1 in Tikal, 1 in Yaxha. The Tikal & Yaxha ruins visit includes a flight to and from Guatemala City.

Come join new friends who are exploring, healing, and growing. This retreat is appropriate for all levels of yoga and meditation experience.

We hope you can join us.

“I believe all healing involves alignment of the soul with the body. When you’re consciously in touch with the life energy within yourself, you have awareness & communication with the flow of energy that connects you to spirit. I feel very passionate about Vibrational Medicine and love working with others in this way & helping others to connect with their purpose and passion in life.”

Vibrational Energy Medicine brings the physical, emotional, mental, & spiritual bodies back into balance, which opens the way for rebuilding the healing systems of the body.
