Wild Feminine offers you the opportunity to unapologetically become yourselves. Through the collaboration of two transformational facilitators, this event will reveal the wild that is you. Wild Feminine is a blend of spiritual practices, holistic design tools, and awakening experiences in which the body-mind-soul is presented with the opportunity to re-discover the forgotten territories that live within.
During this retreat, you will stay in Isla Verde. Isla Verde offers the perfect mix of seclusion and accessibility. Isla Verde is a beautiful eco-retreat center located directly on Lake Atitlan. You will stay in a bungalow accommodation, each with a view of the lake. You will practice yoga, meditation, dance, and more in three different studio spaces located around the land and all overlooking the water.
The Mayans believe that Lake Atitlan is a living, sacred being and that the heavens and the earth are joined together by an umbilical cord named “ri muxux ulueu caj” that is connected to earth in the middle of the lake. Isla Verde has nine independent wooden cabins and two suites for families or groups. They are decorated in a simple way with Mayan fabrics. It also bears a blend of beautiful bohemian-Mayan décor.
The hotel also believes that a good night’s sleep is priceless, hence they have fit each bed with a proper firm mattress that goes really well with the noise-free environment. Each cabin is set on a hillside that requires climbing, but it is guaranteed that your efforts will be rewarded with views of Lake Atitlán and a sense of peace and communion with nature.
Stay here and enjoy the activities offered at Isla Verde, or use it as a great jumping-off place to explore the lake. There is frequent boat service to the other lake communities and the hotel is easily reached from the main transportation hub of Panajachel.
Join Gloria and Grace for a six-day and five-night transformational retreat for women in Guatemala. You will dive deep into Wild Feminine work amongst the sacred mountains, volcanoes, and the lake that Mayan people call “the place where the rainbow gets its colors.”
You will be dancing ecstatically, moving through Yang and Yin Yoga-asana practice, sitting in meditation, inquiring into the depths of the soul, engaging in philosophical discussion, embodying archetypes of the goddess, singing ecstatically, and so much more. If you are called to dive deep into the universe of the womb, come join Wild Feminine in the ritual.
Wild Feminine is also a process in which the body-mind is guided through different individual, partner and group activities to investigate the presence of the wild within yourselves and others. This retreat is offered as a personal growth workshop in which women participate in catalyzing their embodiment of the wild feminine that lives within and without.
Visit to local women’s textile co-op and a day adventure to local town are included in the price.
Gloria has been teaching yoga since 2013. That same year, she discovered Air Yoga in New York and certified her training in this unique form of art. The combination of these conscious practices inspired her to design ultra personal classes and retreats that focus on pranayama, Ayurveda, traditional styles of yoga, and Air Yoga. She has taught in Europe, Canada, United States, and Central America. Gloria also studied interior design and is certified in Feng Shui. She has built over 25 years of dance experience, from contemporary choreography, to ballet, and modern dance.
Grace first stepped onto the path of practice when she was 16 and took her first yoga class. Every day since, it has been an unfolding of a fruitful path of contemplation, self-inquiry, and self-empowerment. Through the practices of yoga, mindfulness, and music (kirtan), she supports students awakening the wisdom that is within them. With breath and awareness centered practice, her students go on a journey to discover the nature of their mind and body. Grace believes that all that one can use contemplative body-mind practices to assist in the uncovering of the true nature.
This retreat will take place in Isla Verde, Santa Cruz La Laguna, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Isla Verde is set in a quiet, safe, and well-preserved corner of Lake Atitlán, in Santa Cruz La Laguna. While lounging in the lakeside garden, you will feel worlds away from the commotion of everyday life.
There are no roads, no traffic, and no public dock near this place. There are only lake breezes, birds singing, and occasional hikers passing by on the footpath. The location affords you the classic lake vista of volcanoes looming over the water, plus direct access to one of the safest, most scenic walks around the lake.
During this retreat, you will be served with daily vegetarian and organic breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
During your free time, you can go to Lake Atitlan. Lake Atitlan is a sacred site of the Mayan people and there are three active volcanoes surrounding the water. You can also indulge in various massage and healing treatments which are available on request.
Please book your flight to arrive at La Aurora International Airport (GUA). Lake Atitlan is about three hours away from the airport and approximately two and a half hours from Antigua, Guatemala.
Some shuttle and bus services also run to San Pedro and Santiago. From the main docks of these towns, you can take a public bus.
Isla Verde is most-easily accessed from Panajachel, the main tourist town in Lake Atitlan with constant traffic of shuttle services connecting it with other main cities. Once in Panajachel, you just need to get to the Tzanjuyú dock at the end of Calle del Embarcadero, where all the boats leave for San Pedro, San Marcos, and Santa Cruz.
Most shuttle services will drop you off there. Public boats leave for Santa Cruz every 20 minutes from 6 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. for 10 GTQ per person. Ask the driver to drop you at Isla Verde's private dock so you can save yourself a ten-minute walk from the main dock. They might charge you an extra 5 GTQ for this drop-off.
