create a getaway to one of most beautiful places on earth

Create a personal getaway for yourself or a group of others that will literally change your life forever.  This magical destination, Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, is a sanctuary of inspiration, personal growth and healing.  The natural beauty alone sets the stage for a spectacular experience.  The gentle spirit of the Mayan people teaches us how life could be when we live in harmony with each other in a heart-based, loving way.  And the ancient wisdom held by these locals is profound. 

During your retreat, Jonathan Winn will guide you through a process to get clear on two things: what do you want to let go of and what do you desire.   It is an opportunity to let go of old patterns of being that no longer serve you well and to invite a new way of being into your life.  It's about connecting to your inner self in a more powerful way.  You will learn powerful new perspectives and tools to inspire your path forward for years to come.

Included in your retreat are:

  • Arrival and departure transportation to and from airport
  • Delicious and healthy meals options
  • Abundant fruits for snacks
  • Unique and beautiful housing with amenities
  • Exploration of lakeside villages with lots of opportunities to purchase locally-made and often hand-made goods
