Join Cole Chance and Jen Hilman for an unforgettable getaway deep in the heart of Guatemala! In Mayan mythology, Lake Atitlan is said to be where the earth was originally charged with life and the Mayan garden of Eden. During this week in a secluded natural oasis, you will cultivate and rekindle the compassion and perspective to be able to recognize the light in yourselves and others. Jen Hilman Productions are very excited to create, share, and experience this sacred journey with you!
You will spend seven nights at the stunning Mystical Yoga Farm. It is a self-directed retreat center and spiritual community with a mission of self-sustainability and organic connection with the environment. This magical venue will provide you with the perfect space to unplug from the hustle and bustle of the daily lives and reconnect what is most important.
Mystical Yoga Farm is a living, off-grid, sustainable center. The entire community and retreat center are sustained by utilizing solar energy, built with natural Earth materials, permaculture farming, vegetarian living, and other natural systems. During our week at the farm, you will be able to experience first hand the simplicity of living close to nature, minimizing your footprint in small and large ways, and honoring her natural systems of balance.
All of the accommodations are rustic and simple, with wooden frames and tin roofs. There are four community showers and multiple eco-toilets. There is limited Wi-Fi at the retreat center. You may purchase some kind of data plan in the country, however, you are encouraged to go on "airplane" mode and give yourself permission to truly let go.
During this yoga retreat, there will be Thai massage workshops, dynamic and subtle yoga practices, meditation, ecstatic dance, a Seva project with the local community, sacred cacao ceremony, temazcal (Mayan cleansing ritual), organic food, kayaks, juicy group discussions, hiking up San Pedro volcano, and much more goodness to support your well-being journey.
This is not intended to be a "luxury" yoga retreat. Rather, this is a journey towards simplicity. It's a journey going inward. It's about finding what's true for you. By letting go of all the non-essentials in your day to day lives, it becomes easier to access your own inner stillness and self-awareness.
The daily itinerary will vary, but will generally consist of the following activities.
Jen Hilman Productions will create a Facebook private group where participants can meet. The group will be updated with tips for travel, maps, packing lists, etc. This is the perfect place to stay connected to your new friends after the retreat is over, share pictures and favorite memories!
