Please arrive at The Hermitage on the 27th of December for an introduction meeting. We ask that participants make a commitment to join the entire retreat and keep a vow of silence for the whole ten days.

The retreat will involve a beautiful schedule of meditation, hatha yoga, and daily teachings on Advaita Vedanta (Non Duality), Self Enquiry Method, Meditation Practices from Sufism, Buddhism and Christianity, and Sacred Poetry.

Each day we will practice together in the main meditation hall over looking the lake, and there will also be time for self practice and contemplation in the gardens or on our private beach. The emphasis of the teachings will be on meditation and self enquiry, and also how to integrate your daily life into your spiritual practice.



Hello, I'm Katrin!

Being a former project manager in an advertising agency, I know how difficult it is to slow down and connect with our hearts. 2016, I therefore dedicated my life to explore ways to foster this connection. These days, I am an international teacher, mentor, and artist supporting beings in embodying their most authentic spiritual expressions in this human reincarnation. My aim is to introduce somatic-based tools to embody Love and deepen one's capacity for intimacy and connection to enable people to create the lives and relationships they yearn for. 


Out of my own deep love for various teachings I came across, I am nowadays bridging feminine spiritual practice, sacred sexuality, conscious relationship, somatic awareness techniques, self-inquiry, meditation, Hatha Yoga and ritual in my offerings.

My teaching style is grounded, innovative, deeply mystical, evocative and rooted in fierce love to wake the innate wisdom within each of us.

Hello, my name is Ximena.

For most of my life, the longing to learn how to love beyond conditions, expectations, time and space. However, it wasn’t until I was introduced to meditation, yoga and different spiritual traditions, that I really started understanding how this total openness to love was really possible.

It is from this longing for unconditional love, and from the recognition of this Love as our shared nature, that I choose to share this path and teachings with all of you.Since this journey started out for me back in 2014, I have completed a Masters in Holistic Education, 500 RTY Yoga Teacher Training, facilitated or participated in over 200 days of Silent Meditation Retreats, completed different workshops on Compassionate Communication, Tantra and Sacred Sexuality, Divine Femininity and more.


The Hermitage is a family owned retreat center founded by Severin and Emma Geser, who are both commited meditation practitioners and qualified meditation and yoga retreat leaders. They live with their children on the shores of Lake Atitlan and offer their beautiful property up for all those looking for solitude and peace.
