Mindful Movement Guatemala Retreat
Mindful Movement Retreat is an all-inclusive experience designed to help you unplug, recharge, experience a connection to nature and reignite your connection to self. We are powerful manifestors, all of us. What we think we have the ability to create. This retreat is designed to tap into your authentic self through movement physically, mentally and emotionally.
This eight day, seven night Guatemala retreat is filled with adventurous activities and stunning sights, from hiking on local trails and Volcano Acatenango, to paddle boarding, kayaking or boating at the magestic Lake Atitlan. We will experience the local culture with a tour, tortilla making class, cacao ceremony and more. Along with our hosts Missy Bruggeman and Jean Nitchals, they will guide us through meditations, breath work, yoga, and various workshops designed to explore our inner selves as much as the outer selves. The perfect blend of exploration of the world around us and within us.
We will start our time together Friday evening, with introductions and dinner, followed by a full moon intention setting ceremony, visualization, meditation and sound bath. This first activity will be the building block for our week together, and we will work with the magic of the Snow Full Moon.
From here we will continue to dive deeper into our intentions, working with the full moon energy throughout the week to explore key topics throughout the week with daily intention setting and opportunities to journal and reflect on key topics such as:
- Envision your authentic future
- Working with the moon cycles to solidify our goals and manifest our dreams
