Journeys in Living Retreats and Tours are for those who want to truly adventure into and experience the living Maya culture.
Santiago Atitlan holds a lineage of unbroken indigenous tradition that is rare in the modern world. The openness to invite and allow outsiders to enter into these sacred Mayan Ways is quite special and is rooted deeply in an ancient story that was first told before the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadores. This story, originally told by the wise Nawals who were the Mayan leaders of this time, has been carried orally through to the present day. Learn more...
Custom Retreats for individuals, groups, and families are welcome. These are created based on the experiences you wish to have, what you want to explore, and the amount of time you would like to spend on Retreat. The experiences can range from intensive spiritual retreats to more introductory cultural and artistic adventures.
A one-week minimum is strongly recommended if you wish to delve into the spiritual, relax, and rejuvenate. Please refer to the list below as a beginning place of how you might create your own Retreat. Learn more...
