Our group will be experiencing this transformational weekend at a stunning retreat property -- where the only thing on your to-do list is to be.

Guided by the wisdom of the Mayan culture, this retreat offers a unique blend of self-discovery, ceremony, and sisterhood, creating a transformative experience that lingers far beyond the retreat itself. This week is a moment to pause, pour back into yourself, and renew your sense of inspiration and purpose. If you feel called, please join us. Meet you at the lake.

What You’ll Experience

While the itinerary is still being co-created with Spirit, here's a taste of what you can expect to experience:

Connect with Nature:

+ Immerse yourself in the serene surroundings of the beautiful ancestral land that is Lake Atitlan. This magical place is the perfect setting for spiritual reflection and inner exploration. Nature walks, hikes, and meditation by the lake will leave you with a sense of harmony and oneness with the earth.

Open Your Heart:

+ When we step away from the busyness of our everyday life, we create space to hear the whispers of our hearts. Throughout the week you'll be guided through deep introspection, quieting the noise and peeling away the layers holding you back. Ceremonial cacao will support us in this heart-opening process.

Sacred Rituals:

+ The ceremonies and rituals that you'll experience are rooted in ancient traditions and will guide you to remember your innate wisdom, helping you unveil the answers you are seeking. 

Heartfelt Connections:

+ There is powerful medicine in allowing yourself to be seen and held. Find solace in sisterhood as you laugh and bond with other members of the retreat. The shared experiences and intentional time spent together will plant seeds for friendships that span a lifetime.


Pamper Your Soul:

+ You deserve deep, nourishing rest. In between group sessions, you'll have ample time for walking the land, taking a cleansing dip in the lake, burying yourself in a new book, and taking a nap in a lakeside hammock. For those seeking extra relaxation, optional massages are available on-site at an additional cost. Our goal is to ensure that you return home feeling rejuvenated in body and mind.

Surprises Await:

+ Leave the logistics and planning to us and be prepared for delightful surprises along the way, adding magic to your journey and making this retreat an experience of a lifetime.

About Your Guide

I'm a certified meditation guide, journal author, wellness educator, and the founder of Manifest House™, a virtual wellbeing space rooted in community that helps BIPOC women and allies care for all aspects of themselves unapologetically.


Inspired by my own self-healing journey, I've helped hundreds of women come back home to themselves by deepening their connection to self, community, and nature.


I am constantly amazed at the vast and never-ending wisdom that nature, our ancestors, and Indigenous teachings have to teach us.


I'm also incredibly passionate about mental health, representation and inclusivity in wellness, and building authentic communities. Creating Manifest House has been a dream come true, and it's truly an honor to be your guide.

Hi, I;m Angelee!

Frequently Asked Questions

Which airport should I fly into?

You'll want to fly into La Aurora International Airport (GUA). We recommend booking a flight to arrive either the day before retreat (May 18th) and staying in a hotel near the airport (we can provide a recommendation) or you can arrive early morning May 19th, by 1pm local time. From La Aurora International Airport (GUA) in Guatemala City to Lake Atitlán, it’s a scenic drive (approximately 3.5 hours) across Guatemala’s mountainous landscape, then a quick boat ride to our retreat center. Transportation is included in your retreat price and we will travel together as a group.

Should I plan for any additional expenses while I'm at retreat?

Nope! Everything is included in your retreat price to offer you a week of complete ease. The only things not included are your airfare, travel insurance, and optional private massage at the house.

Who will I be sharing a room with?

For those in a shared room, the room assignments will be created based on Angelee's intuitive guidance. If you would like to be roomed with a friend, please reach out to us after you've booked your ticket.

What kind of food will be served?

All meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and snacks will be provided for you throughout the entire weekend. The meals will be prepared by Rosa, the local Guatemalan chef at our retreat property. A mix of Guatemalan and American, meals will be nourishing, plant-forward, healthy, and flavorful. Your specific dietary needs will be accommodated and gathered after you book.

What will the weather be like?

Called “the land of eternal spring”, the Lake Atitlan region enjoys a year-round temperature in the seventies—never uncomfortably hot or muggy, due to its mile-high altitude, with little to no mosquitos. Prepare for the possibility of rain in the afternoons and evenings. Evenings are just cool enough that you might want a sweater.

What time does the retreat begin & end?

The retreat begins on Sunday, May 19th in the afternoon and concludes on Friday, May 24th around 10:00 am. Please book your flights to arrive by 1pm Guatemala time on May 19th as we will all take the 3.5hr shuttle to Lake Atitlan together. Feel free to extend your stay after the retreat and explore the beauty and other villages that Lake Atitlan has to offer! You'll be connected to the other retreat attendees in advance in case you'd like to find a travel buddy. If you extend your stay you will need to cover the cost of your transportation back to the airport (we can provide a shuttle company recommendation).

When will I receive the Itinerary?

The retreat itinerary will be provided a week or two before the retreat begins. You'll see what we have planned but know that everything will be flexible to account for the needs of our group, weather, etc. We will have a general plan but will operate on DST (Divine Standard Timing) :) There will be an intentional balance of activities and leisure time to integrate, journal, read, and enjoy the property.

What if I can't attend these dates or don't get a ticket before they sell out?

If there is an abundance of interest, we will open a waitlist for a second week! :) 

Where will we be staying?

The shores of Lake Atitlan are adorned with several charming Mayan villages, each with its own unique culture, traditions, and handicrafts. We will be staying 10-minutes from the city center of San Marcos La Laguna at a beautiful private property called Casa Paloma which has been hosting retreats for over twenty years. We will be in great hands with their terrific team of mostly-local staff.

Who can attend this retreat?

This retreat is open to all Manifest House members who feel called to attend - women & femme-identifying people of all colors, ages, religious backgrounds, etc. We are not accepting non-members at this time. You must be an active Manifest House member at the time of retreat in order to attend. If you would like a friend to join you at retreat, invite them to join the Fall membership HERE.
