Eagle’s Nest is a beautiful blend of eco-conscious construction with expansive and creative design. The centerpiece is the huge, open air yoga and dance deck that invites artistic expression and instant connection to the magnificent views it overlooks.

All of life is creation. It is people's nature to create new ideas, and whether you are designing your bedroom, your six month plan, or your life, the way you harness your life force and human creativity is key to unlocking your most expansive version of yourself.
Accessing your natural state of flow comes from deep connection and unity of your body, mind, and spirit. When life feels stagnant, painful or disconnected, it is often the product of overthinking and lack of presence, causing resistance, worry, fear and indecision. Aligning yourself with the movement of life force through you frees up your creative impulse and evokes a limitless state, where manifestation happens effortlessly and things seem to just flow.
By creating space, you allow new creation. Fed by wide open views, simple and sustainable living and energy-activating practices such as yoga, dance and ceremony, you spark the wonder back into your daily experience. With a schedule designed to help you open up to the flow of expression, and a setting that induces awe, this is an opportunity to truly come back to your center.
The Elevation Ecstatic Dance has quickly become an iconic event within the worldwide community that flocks to Guatemala each year. Offering an opening cacao ceremony, ecstatic dance, live DJs and performers, bonfire and art installations, all perched on the edge of a panoramic mountain lake view, this is a unique and memorable event.
Each attendee is no spectator but rather a participant. By removing the availability of alcoholic drinks, the quality of the experience bears a clearer and elevated quality. Enjoy delicious foods, sumptuous music and tribal sounds, resident and travelling DJs (Mose Cagen, Black Lovs , Matti IV, Michael Verner) tantalizing colors and lighting moods, performing artists, cozy lounge, visionary art and inspirational video projections, candles and low lighting, hours of ecstatic dance, new encounters, re-connections, and mystical experiences.
Please note that each day the schedule will vary. The Elevation Ecstatic Dance will be integrated with the retreat. Free time optional activities include kayaking, local market shopping, stand up paddle board, and hiking.
Included as part of your stay is one hike up San Marcos Valley to a beautiful creek.
