About this trip

This wellness retreat was lovingly created and curated to assist participants to clear out old programming and outdated paradigms that keep us stuck in old stories while simultaneously ushering in new mindsets and methodologies to rescript your life! To cultivate greater cultural awareness and appreciation for ancient Mayan sites, we will be experiencing amazing Mayan ruins from Tikal to Yaxhá Nakum Naranjo National Park.

Rescripting Your Life is a Self Mastery International retreat open to individuals, couples and small groups of friends longing for a transformative, ecologically conscious, culturally rich experience. 

Designed to inspire a sense of curiosity and exploration with a bias towards design thinking, we will map out a path much like an inventor would design a lightbulb or create a rocket, by utilizing different mindsets and tools to think outside the box. Designers build their way forward with innovative strategies to practically address current life challenges, much like the ancestors of Mayan cities designed aquifers, roads and temples in the jungle.

We have partnered with Sumak Travel to design a journey through some of Guatemala's top attractions to experience a great mix of archaeology, adventure, nature, relaxation, education, healing and renewal. You will visit wonders and unique ecosystems in the magnificent Maya Biosphere Reserve, a unique place where history, archaeology, living culture, and nature converge. It provides an unspoiled space for transformational experiences.

This unique retreat is meant to deepen self-awareness and create a bridge between human beings from different backgrounds. The experiences in this regenerative journey provide spaces and opportunities for both travelers and indigenous communities to share their narratives and get to know each other. Through storytelling and cultural immersion, we will create a space for healing, reflection and empowerment, while embracing Maya culture and spirituality.

This 9-day wellness retreat features yoga, meditation, transformational workshops and other healing activities to enlighten your soul. Come forge new connections with other like-minded people and create lifelong bonds that deepen over time!

This retreat is now fully booked. If you are interested in our retreats in other Latin American countries, please make sure you subscribe to our newsletter:
