Journey Into Sacred Expression Women’s Retreat, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala with Aimee Hansen of The Storyteller Within

Join this summer retreat event in a luxury location on Lake Atitlan. Breathe and relax into lakeside luxury as we gather for an inspiring and beautiful week beneath the watch of volcanoes. Join a sacred circle of women in the spirit of reclamation for a creative inner adventure through meditation, yoga, and self-exploratory writing at Villa Sumaya in Santa Cruz, Guatemala. You are invited to take a brave and honest journey into your center to connect with your intuition and express from your core. Within each of us is the call to open our hearts, step into our courage, and animate our own sacred expression.

Practice yoga as we meditate upon the gentle ripples of the lake. Gather for raw expression with brave and beautiful women in a sacred circle.
