Ancient wisdom for the modern world

Do you have a yearning to delve deep?

A calling to heal, find clarity, and just live your best life?

This Retreat will give you the time, space and experiences to create real change, solid growth, and give you tools and practices from the wisdoms of the ancient Maya that you can live in your every day life. Group size, depending on accommodation preferences, will be 12-15 people.

Our time together will be on the wonderful shores and towns of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. One of the great natural wonders of the world and the sacred waters of creation for the Maya. Here you will experience Maya ceremony, learn intimately from the many spiritual and artistic traditions, and have time in the abundant natural beauty that lives here.

You will stay at the beautiful Hotel Toliman, in San Lucas Toliman, where the lush flower gardens, swimming pool, many wonderful indoor and outdoor spaces, and a staff will nurture and make sure you have a wonderful time.  We will also visit their amazing organic garden (that supplies the restaurant) where you will learn from a master gardener about what it is to tend, grow, and nourish life.​

Along with Patrick and LeeAnn, you will meet and share time with a variety of shamans, weavers, artists, gardeners, and other wise ones who will share with you.

Participate in three Mayan ceremonies. Prior to coming you will set your intent and we will then use these petitions in your ceremonies. And not to worry if this is new to you. We’ll guide you through the process.
Lots of yummy and fun time in community where you can share, learn, and explore the depths of your journey with others.
