This retreat encourages us to go inside, play, and explore our assumptions, stories, and boundaries about who we are and what we can create in this world. We explore a few core questions such as, Who am I now? How did I get here? Where am I going? How do I create? What am I creating? 

By exploring our unique expressions of inner divine feminine and masculine energies, we tease out tensions for later manifestation, and release ourselves into the ocean of our own divinity therefore deepening our relationship with the divine within and the universal forces that hold us ever in their care.

Join us for a transformative week of personal, quantum evolutionary healing and evolution at a rejuvenating eco-lodge. Experience a life full of joy, community, service, and love. The tools and skills we practice and perfect in this week use traditional spiritual evolutionary formulas adapted for the modern seeker so you can apply them to your life immediately upon return home.

Sample Daily Flow:

We start each day with time for self-directed meditation, yoga (add-on) or free time after which a nourishing breakfast is served. After breakfast we will gather for group sessions that are interactive and fun, followed by a lunch break overlooking the lake.

Afternoon sessions alternate self-reflective exercises, sacred ceremony, group discussion and free time during which Matthew and retreat center staff are available for healing sessions as well as spa services. Then we commune for a lavish meal at early twilight. Most evenings offer time for renewal and relaxation with a few designated times spent in community and healing ceremonies.

Guest Rooms

Each room features a patio with an unparalleled view of the lake and volcanoes. Touches of vintage Guatemalan furnishings and superior textiles are the featured décor throughout the bedroom and private bath.
