Practice with purpose, immerse in intention. 

Celebrate the New Year in sacred community. 

Nestled between the sleeping volcanos and surrounded by sacred waters, Lake Atitlán will serve as our home for the week as we welcome in 2025. "Atitlán" in Nahuatl means "the place where the rainbow gets its colors." This mystical lake is often called the most beautiful in Central America and has inspired insight-seekers for thousands for years.

 

Come together in Sangha to immerse the potent portal between the completion of 2024 and the embrace of 2025. A time to honor sacred transition and transformation, enhanced by the profound magic of Lake Atitlán. Reflect and bow in reverence for what the past year has brought, and conjure the cosmic space to foster new possibilities and manifestations for the year to come.

About

Lake Atitlan

Surrounded by a vortex of volcanoes, Lake Atitlan is known for its healing and mystical properties that seekers and believers feel upon arrival. The lake lies in the heart of an ancient volcano's caldera, which filled with water after it's final eruption 85,000 years ago. The lake and it's three surrounding volcanoes still hold active tectonic power and people travel from around the world to feel the energy vortex created here at the intersection of Fuego de la Tierra and Paz del Lago.

Located in Santa Cruz la Laguna, Lake Atitlán, Guatemala, the retreat center is dedicated to rejuvenating holistic practices and healing modalities as well as preserving Mayan traditions and facilitating outdoor adventure in the heart of the Altiplano.

 

Majestically located on the shores of Lake Atitlan, this retreat oasis has a dock for sitting along the shore as well as a pool overlooking the waters. Many Mayan hands have contributed to the creation of this paradise and our ongoing connection with indigenous neighbors has been mutually respectful, rich and gratifying. Everything you find here – every brick, every paving stone, every piece of window glass and decorative tile — has been lovingly transported to Sumaya by boat and then carried by hand and strong back to its respective location.
