About us

A Journey to Wholeness & Luminosity through Wholeness Practices, Cacao Medicine & Shamanic Drum Journeys, Mayan Fire Ceremony, Restorative Yoga, Energy Healing & Mayan Adventures.

Come on a journey to wholeness at Lake Atitlan, which the Maya believe is the birthplace of all creation. This sacred lake is known for its manifestation powers and soul's path alignment. Leave behind the chaos and uncertainty of the world and step into a sacred sanctuary where you will find and reconnect with your soul's path, light and joy. A journey to wholeness is a healing path, your soul's path. They are all one path and unfold together.

This is where I confirmed my soul's path and was guided on my healing journey. – Nicole

You will reconnect mind-heart-spirit-soul through daily wholeness practices, cacao medicine and shamanic drum journeys, a fire ceremony and Mayan Day Sign and Destiny reading with a Mayan shaman, restorative yoga and healing. We will eat or drink ceremonial cacao from Guatemala every day to stay connected to our heart wisdom. Ceremonial cacao is medicine of the heart and soul.

You will return and respond to life grounded & centered | connected to your intuition & soul | clear on the joyful path unfolding before you | abundant with inner knowing & daily practices | restored & transformed |  whole & luminous.

The deepest part of you will be restored and transformed.

BOOK BY OCTOBER 31 TO RECEIVE $100 OFF

In the Mayan world, the five elements–earth, water, air, fire and sky/spirit–are our teachers, healers and guides for living a whole and luminous life with abundance, clarity, flow and creativity. They are a template for living a balanced life with soulful meaning and purpose.

Each day of the retreat focuses on one of the elemental energies–earth, water, air, fire and sky/spirit–with wholeness practices, rituals and ceremonies that set the foundation for your own reconnection and self-healing. You will receive practical tools to take home, so you maintain your connection to your heart wisdom.

I’m so delighted to share this journey and the transformative magic of Lake Atitlan with you as this was where I was guided on my own healing journey: first on a solo retreat to confirm my soul’s path and second to co-lead a yoga & transformation retreat at Villa Sumaya in 2016. – Nicole

Villa Sumaya is a beautifully abundant eco-retreat, yoga and healing arts center. Experience its lush magical surroundings in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keIW3y-d6Vc

In addition to practices and excursions, there will be free time to swim in the lake, lie in a hammock, soak in the sun, visit local indigenous villages, kayak or paddle board, or indulge in spa and healing treatments.

You will be transformed–renewed, restored and reconnected–and return with practices and resources for inner wisdom, clarity, connection, alignment and self-healing. 

When you return home, you will feel a deep connection to yourself and to your soul’s path. You will look and feel Luminous!

A grounded, insightful, and intuitive spiritual leader and personal coach, Nicole has a natural gift for encouraging others to open up and recognize their soul’s path. Her very presence is liberating — a rare individual who truly listens, intuits, and illuminates the possibilities within you. Nicole’s unique combination of personal experience, spiritual practice, and coaching expertise can bring solutions that are both practical and “real world”, while also drawing upon ancient spiritual wisdom that is supportive of the deeper, inner journey we are all on. – Kelly Elizabeth Behrend

Venue Highlights

Villa Sumaya is a retreat & wellness center located on 18 acres in Santa Cruz la Laguna on the shores of Lake Atitlán, Guatemala with majestic views of three volcanos and access to 12 indigenous villages around the lake each with its own distinct culture. Our 5,000 foot altitude and proximity to the equator offers a high plane semi-tropical paradise often referred to as “the land of eternal spring.”

We are dedicated to rejuvenating holistic practices and healing modalities offered at our spa as well as preserving Mayan traditions and facilitating outdoor adventure in the heart of the Altiplano.

Our secluded lakefront cove is the perfect sanctuary for a peaceful getaway with inspiring group studios, open-air lounges, Spa healing huts and our very own Café Sumaya Sol.

We offer a solar-heated, stone hot tub oasis, tastefully tucked above our garden lounge. We also have a hot-tub in our Lakefront Lounge that can be heated on request. For a detoxifying sweat, our electric sauna can be reserved for a small charge or we offer a complete Chichimeca Sweat Ceremony in our beautiful custom-designed lakefront sauna. Guests may swim in our pool or the lake.
