About This Center

Sacred Transformational Space at the world's most beautiful lake - Atitlan, in Guatemala.

Constructed with the intention to be a harmonious, sacred container for workshops, rituals and community celebrations, The Sanctuary provides comfort and safety for deep emotional and transformational processes. Founded in 2012, the Sanctuary is an ideal place for visiting facilitators to host their own events and workshops or for private individuals looking for a special place to stay and enjoy Lake Atitlan. It is also the base for Araminta’s own workshops and private sessions when she is in residence. This relaxing space has blissful views of the lake and volcanoes, whilst curtains provide an intimate feel so participants can be fully present with their journey. The Sanctuary provides access to a 6-person Mayan temescal/sauna with shower and bathroom. Kitchen and catering options are also available. The workshop space can generously accommodate groups of:

· 15 for yoga

· 20 for dance workshops

· 40 for talks

Previous events include:

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.
