During this retreat, you will be staying at Villa Sumaya in large double rooms (two beds) with private baths and balconies overlooking the lake. Limited to 10 participants to create a safe, intimate environment for the inner immersion of this retreat. Created by a textile designer with great attention to detail and beauty, Villa Sumaya, accessible by boat only, offers an artistically designed, enveloping haven with vistas of the lake as well as three volcanoes from every room.

If you are searching for a place to rest, reflect, revitalize, immerse in practice, culture, and ageless natural beauty, Villa Sumaya and the Embodied Awareness Retreat may be what you have been searching for. A unique sanctuary to care for the soul.


Cultivating Self-Resource and Awareness with Yoga, Fluid Movement, and Meditation Practices


Yoga sessions

Yoga sessions invite deep listening, fluid unwinding, and awakening sensation as a guide back to the body’s innate intelligence. This approach to practice shifts the habit of “doing” asana to an unfolding, by feeling and sensing your way through the practice. Sessions will be guided with periods for self-exploration and discovery.


Meditation and self-inquiry sessions encourage becoming familiar with the rest and ease of your essential nature. The meditation sessions offer mindfulness and breath awareness based on Vipassana meditation as well as non-dual, open awareness meditation, and self-inquiry.

Movement explorations

Movement explorations allow for slipping thru the cracks of your conditioning, experiencing different vibrational energy to directly embody Essence and True Home.


Breathwork is a rare offering in yoga and meditation retreats and is an experience of healing, enhanced well-being, insight, and the direct experience of expanded consciousness. It is a profound dimension of these retreats.

Free time

There will be ample time to soak in the hot tubs, take a sauna, have a massage, hike in the adjacent hills, swim in the lake, explore one or more of the Mayan villages around the lake, or simply relax in the beauty and quiet of Villa Sumaya.

Lake Atitlan

This retreat is an opportunity to enjoy a week on the shores of majestic Lake Atitlan taking your practice to another level by inquiring into the essence of your being. Who am I? What is life really about? Why am I here? Is Presence my true nature? These are all questions that begin to arise from a deeply engaged life and practice, a yearning for true freedom, and the desire to open to the depth of who and what you are.

The container of this retreat will provide the support for an embodied experience of this exploration. There is something mystical about Lake Atitlan. The lake itself is about 50 kilometers in diameter, surrounded by volcanoes and traditional Mayan villages which maintain their cultural identities and traditions. A few of these villages are a beautiful walk from Villa Sumaya.

Villa Sumaya, located on the shores of Lake Atitlan in the Guatemalan highlands, is surrounded by indigenous villages and described by novelist Aldous Huxley as the most beautiful lake in the world. Rolling Meadows Retreat has taught at Villa Sumaya for five years and has spent nine winters living on the shores of this rare, mystical lake, said to carry the energy of the Divine Feminine. The villa is about a 20-minute walk to the pueblo town of Santa Cruz La Laguna where local people live a quiet life of farming the hills around the village and fishing the lake.
