reviews of the retreats


"I was continuously in awe."

- Erin, Florida

"This retreat was overall one of the best and most rewarding experiences of my life. I did not know what to expect but this was even more than I could have ever imagined. The variety of activities, from meditation and yoga to movement/dance, sound healing, traditional Mayan fire ceremony and Chichimeca sweat lodge, kayaking, hiking and cultural excursions, I was continuously in awe of what I learned from each experience. Since this was a writing retreat, I was most surprised at how many different types of prompts that Aimee would use to facilitate our writing. I did not come as a writer and was apprehensive about sharing my writing, but by the end of the retreat, I know that it was so healing for me. The writing circle became my favorite part. Writing and journaling is a practice I will now carry with me always. I loved listening to other women share their stories and writing and it inspires and empowers me. The writing circles created such a deep sense of connection that I believe would not had been possible if we did not have that as part of the retreat. Together, our group of ten women and our retreat leader Aimee were nothing short of magic. We all held space for one another and I care for each one individually. With our collective experiences, we now share a sisterhood where we feel safe, loved and supported. I cannot recommend this retreat enough to others. In addition, the venue of Villa Sumaya and the location at Lake Atitlan create the most stunning backdrop to create a sense of peace. The staff were incredibly helpful, each meal was delicious, healthy and lovingly prepared and the accommodations were beyond my wildest dreams. Truly I was surrounded by beauty in all directions. I am forever grateful for this experience and it has transformed me and the direction of my life. I hope that anyone considering this retreat says YES. The rewards from this one week will last a lifetime."
