About this trip

Our Indigenous Beauty Journey Mantra is: “ Restore.”

The indigenous peoples of Earth are calling for us to rise into co-creatorship, maturity, and stewardship through our actions and practices. Here at Around the World Beauty, it’s our mission to support and stand with our Indigenous brothers and sisters as we rise into a new era of collaboration and community.

How can we move from ignorance into intentionality? Plant and spirit beauty has hit the mainstream market but without a deeper understanding of the connection between Indigenous cultures and our Mother Earth, the trend becomes empty and lacks authenticity. We end up further alienating ourselves, and lack the respect and context of where these rituals originate from, removing their medicine and fragrance. Many of us are called back to these traditions for healing, for correct understanding of our place in the cosmos and how we can return to ourselves, the planet, and each other.


9 Days/ 8 Nights. 

Join us for a 9-night journey in Guatemala while we explore the rituals of and celebrate the Indigenous Maya Beauty & Spirit. 

We will be exploring the theme of Sacred Healing, its uprising in the beauty industry while grounded in nature's beauty and spirit of the Maya people. 

Explore your inner strength experiencing the teachings through a conversation of beauty and textiles.  Learn about sustainable sources for indigenous plants and how we can ally with communities to ensure our co-creations are one of balance, respect and mutuality.

Discover a doorway to Beauty which is curated with the intention to build amity and understanding as we co-create a more beautiful, diverse, and connected future.
