Meraki Retreats Presents Reinvent & Renew on the Rio Dulce!  A Women’s Retreat

We are so excited to be hosting our next retreat in Beautiful Guatemala this Spring! The magic of the Rio Dulce is almost indescribable!

In nature we are able to rest, let go of stress, realign with our unique way of vibrating in the world and create a resonance with mother Gia that allows us to find a connection to our higher self. We will be learning to understand our stories from a neutral space and reinvent the way we relate to the stories of our lives so we can heal more deeply and move forward into 2020 in a Big Way!

Meraki Retreats was founded by Debbie Hawksworth (Breathwork Facilitator, Reiki Master and Shamanic Studies), Jessica Wadja (Organic Personal Chef, Breathwork Facilitator and Health and Wellness Enthusiast) and Jennifer Lakhmi Chand (Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master, Functional Nutritional Therapy, Life/Parenting/Wellness Coach) to bring healing, restoration, empowerment and vitality to all that they serve.

You will book a flight to arrive into Guatemala City on Thursday, March 26th and return to Guatemala City on Thursday, April 2nd so you can book your return flight for Friday, April 3rd unless you plan to stay and explore more of this beautiful country.
