Awakening to the Sacredness of Life

In this extraordinary experience on the sacred Lake Atitlan, we will come together to make ordinary life sacred again. Kaivalya, locals, and indigenous wisdom keepers will be offering techniques for the embodiment of sacred wisdom.  Mother Nature will be our sacred container and there will be daily opportunities to connect and reflect on her wisdom. This will be a deep dive into your divine nature (Dive-in/ Divine). Through honoring all of the things we take for granted such as breath, food, water, and body capability. A central theme of this retreat will be igniting the spiritual fire of tapas, and connecting to the fires within and around us through ritual and ceremony. To invigorate our connection to the divine within and all around. Transforming our relationship to life itself, through tapas, we allow the vibrant light of sacredness to return to life. As you step into the spiritual fire it cleanses and clears you as much as you let it. Each of our healing journeys has a ripple effect on all of humanity. With the intention to rekindle the relationship to Earth and all her inhabitants we will be sending this prayer out to the world. Healing these connections can awaken inner power and truth and help to truly integrate the insights of spiritual practice. 
In this 5-day retreat with meditation, yoga, ritual, ceremony, time with nature, prayer, and song you will be able to connect to the sacredness of life again and return to your true power.
The purpose of this offering is to give participants tools to carry back to ordinary life.
A portion of the proceeds will be returned to the local community through nonprofits aimed at protecting the water.
