October 21-28, 2019

I’m joining Harry and Amanda of Sense Elements on a sensory immersive luxury retreat in beautiful Antigua Guatemala, where we will guide you through a week long journey through the senses. We’ll be exploring heat and cold therapy, journeying through the chakras daily with food, meditation, workshops, movement, sound baths, reiki healing and so much more. We will come together to pause our busy schedules and be present in the act of slowing down and creating space to reconnect to self, body, mind, breath and nature.

Cradled at the foothill of lush mountains, and over-looking two of Guatemala’s volcanoes, you will feel more connected to Pachamama than ever before. We will open the doors to wellness by way of farm-to-table food, community, learning and ritual on this sacred Mayan land. You will recover your bodies natural rhythms, feeling more connected and self-aware.

Whether you are going through a change in your life, wanting to try something new, or just need time to rest and restore – we will ensure you are given the space and support to do so.

We are so excited to welcome you on this adventure to help you find harmony and balance in your life, bringing you back to the true remembrance of yourself, your nature and your birthright to feel vital and whole.
