Cultivating Connection

Reserve Your Spot

Join Cole Chance and Jen Hilman for an unforgettable getaway deep in the heart of Guatemala.  In Mayan mythology, Lake Atitlan is said to be where the earth was originally charged with life.  The Mayan Garden of Eden!

We will spend 7 nights at the stunning Mystical Yoga Farm.  It is a self-directed retreat center and spiritual community with a mission of self-sustainability and organic connection with the environment.   This magical venue will provide us the perfect space to unplug from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and get reconnected to what is most important.

There will be Thai massage workshops, dynamic and subtle yoga practices, meditation, ecstatic dance, a seva project with the local community, Sacred Cacao Ceremony, Temazcal (Mayan cleansing ritual), organic food, kayaks, juicy group discussions, hiking up San Pedro volcano, and much more goodness to support your well being journey.

The true meaning of Namaste is "I SEE YOU". During this week in a secluded natural oasis, we will cultivate and rekindle the compassion and perspective to be able to recognize the light in ourselves and others. We are so excited to create, share, and experience this sacred journey with you!


Mystical Yoga Farm is a living, off-grid, sustainable center.  The entire community and retreat center are sustained by utilizing solar energy, built with natural Earth materials, permaculture farming, vegetarian living, and other natural solutions.  During our week at the Farm we will be able to experience first hand the simplicity of living close to Nature, minimizing our foot print in small and large ways, and honoring Her natural systems of balance.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
