‘ WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IS WHAT IS LOOKING’
– St Francis of Assisi
There is an increasingly profound need to reconnect with ourselves, now more than ever. It is crucial to be firmly rooted in this inner sense of connection in order to thrive in life.
The Hermitage offers a secure sanctuary where you can retreat from the demands of your daily life. It allows you to amplify the volume of your inner world, enabling you to align with your true self without the constant distractions of the outer world.
This is where you truly discover your essence. Only from this place of self-discovery can you bring forth your unique and authentic self, and embark on the journey of living your soul's path.

ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE
I did my first dark retreat here. Severin supported me super well before and after the retreat. I was in there for 10 days feeling save and supported by the surrounding. The food is nice and healthy. I would definitely recommend this place to stay for a (dark) retreat. Make sure you join the morning classes with Severin. They start at 6.30 and take around 2 hours. Its playing with different exercise connecting with yourself.
I’ve been going to The Hermitage once a year for 3 years now. It has been such an integral part of walking my spiritual path and allowing me a peaceful, beautiful space to grow. It feels like my Guatemalan home away from home here. The community is kind, the grounds are a little slice of heaven, and the vegetarian food is absolutely amazing! I look forward to returning year after year.
SOLITARY AND DARK RETREAT
I love this place. It is a beautiful Sanctuary which allows to have the best meditation and solitude retreats surrounded by nature and the sacred Lake Atitlán. The service and food are amazing, full of love and care. Definetly the best conditions to go deeper into your spiritual practice. I just finished there a 30-Day Silent Meditation Retreat with Claudiu Vaduva and has been one of the most profound experiences along the path ❤️🌟🕉 I'll come back for a Dark Retreat for sure
