About this trip

Tucked away by lush canopies of palm and banana trees, overlooking the vast stretching waters of Lago Atitlán, Guatemala. Steep hills and a ring of volcanoes enclose these peaceful waters, which some legends claim to be the very place that the Earth itself was birthed. 

We welcome all- from adventuring families to heart-centered change makers,  join the Natural Leaders Foundation and a group of skilled facilitators to lead us through a week of education, exploration and total rejuvenation.

Get immersed in nature, culture and community connection while tending to your health and vitality! 

BEAUTIFY OUR LIVES ACTION DAYS: The service portion of our Lago Atitlán retreat is focused on supporting the Gonzalez family in San Pedro La Laguna. We will work together led by The Permaculture Revolution to support extending their organic farm, while providing education and resources for more regenerative agricultural practices to better conserve water and enhance ecological biodiversity.  

* please note: the terrain is rough through most of the areas we will be exploring, please take this into consideration if you have any mobility issues. 

Over The Week Together!


Intentional self-growth is a form of healing and a rite of passage. It is also something we at the Natural Leaders Foundation find fundamental for the strength & sustainability of rising small communities, especially those that have been systematically overlooked for generations. Through interactive, unexpectedly fun exercises we unravel the power & the simple process of holding space for ourselves, our loved ones & our local communities. 


We will deepen our inner-standing of how the body often allows stagnate emotions to stick & how to practically transform those old patterns & devaluing habits into empowering tools for self development. Reconnect with your most loved forms of expression and rise up to gift yourself creative liberation through pure presence. Say Yes to Your Unique Genius- transform old stories into quantum fuel for creation!


Join us in reconnecting with our original design & purpose as humans, tending to our Great Mother Earth. Through daily hands-on action we will immerse ourselves in caring for our sacred ecosystems & the people who live tending to them. Experience the reciprocal nature of the universe in real-time through a live exchange of unconditional love & service. 


We are excited to share the sacred arts of traditional cacao ceremonies, Mayan despachos and revitalizing plant baths. (ask me for details, all optional) These tools enrich our relations with the natural world around us and those who came before us. You will ignite your receptivity to the incredible intelligence of our plant allies and their potential to recalibrate your physical & emotional wellbeing.

You will receive practical wisdom on how to integrate ancient practices & regenerative skills into your everyday life to begin diving deeper into intentionally living in harmony with the world around you


You will leave this week full of clarity and purpose. Freed from limiting beliefs and ready to return home with a fresh perspective on your roles, goals and inspirations as we collectively move into the #Restoring20s. Discover what it feels like to truly become your own Natural Leader!


We will have an itinerary that weaves scheduled activations with open, free time to enjoy your surroundings. We will also give a day or two for guided adventures of your choice! You can also use this time to hang around the island, shop at local artisanal shops or simply go for a swim!

We look forward to you joining us!

Well Wishes,

Jon Nash, Founder
