Sacred Expression Women’s Retreat, Lake Atitlan

Join a Women's Circle for a Creative Adventure to Reconnect With Your Voice.

Jan 3-11, Aug 1-10, 2020. Lonely Planet recommended women's sacred circle with writing and yoga.

Sacred Expression Women’s Retreat, Lake Atitlan Enjoy yoga and meditation in an open-air shala that gazes over volcanoes and Lake Atitlan - at The Yoga Forest or Villa Sumaya - in the Mayan highlands of Guatemala. Gather in sacred circle for intimate expression and sharing with other brave and beautiful women. Indulge in delicious vegetarian food. Fall asleep to the rhythms and sounds of nature. Join night ceremony by candlelight. This retreat is not about "writing" as an art form. We ourselves are the art form, and writing is our channel for vulnerability, insight and revelation. Every woman has a voice in her own life - we are gathering together to raise it up and own our self-expression.

Relax for a week of inspiring landscape, higher perspectives, and beauty all around. We'll take a creative and spiritual journey through meditation, yoga & self-exploratory writing. Recommended by Lonely Planet Wellness escapes and listed among "Incredible Writing Retreats to Attend" for four years in a row by the Write Life, you are invited to take a brave and creative journey to reclaim your inner voice and heart guidance, and connect more deeply within and with each other.   In rural Guatemalan highlands, The Yoga Forest and Villa Sumaya overlook Lake Atitlan and three majestic volcanoes. The Yoga Forest offers beautiful cabins, expansive views, eco-friendly living, and Mayan sauna in lush forest surroundings for the adventurous of heart. With a gorgeous lakeside spot in a secluded cove, Villa Sumaya offers an eco-chic sanctuary with beautiful rooms, panoramic views, and on-site spa to renew body and spirit.

In our women's circle, we raise inner journey themes and work through them with dynamic, reflective, and creative self-exploratory writing exercises. The circle provides a loving and encouraging space to free your inner voices, speak your experience, enliven your possibilities, and connect more deeply within and with each other. The alchemy is in the sharing and living of our truths.   Step back from your day-to-day to surround yourself with beauty and nature for this transformative creative and spiritual journey. Let awe in and invite back mystery. On your longer breaks, you can relax at the retreat center, go for a swim or kayak in Lake Atitlan, enjoy a group hike or excursion, explore local villages, receive a massage or spa treatment, or experience a Mayan cosmological birth chart reading.
