"Without a doubt, it will be interesting to know where we come from, but it is more important to realize that we are part of everything, even though if we are a small particle in the immense Universe, we are all sons and daughters of the same source, and our destiny is united to that of the CREATION. Each person has also a role and a destiny to fulfill, so therefore each fragment of our existence is transcendental."
Don Isidro
Mayan Wisemen
"I highly recommend the Mayan Wellness Retreat. I joined the 3 night retreat at Lake Atitlan where I learned about the Mayan Energies from Maria Quezada as well as unblocking my Chakras.

This was a life changing experience for me as I now are in the stage of my life where I want to be awaken and connected with nature and serve my fellow women and children in Guatemala and let go of ideas and behaviors that do not serve me any longer. After over 30 years in the banking industry in California, I decided to retire and move to Guatemala. I have 2 beautiful daughters and 7 amazing grandchildren.

Thank you dear Abigail for sharing this life changing experience with me."

The Mayan Wellness Retreat is hosted by Granafort x The GratitudeGram

After a long hike in the Pacific Palisades, Alain and Asal, the founders of Granafort and The GratitudeGram created the possibility of collaborating on an exclusive Mayan Wellness Retreat in Guatemala. The Mayan Wellness Retreat will take place in remote and magical locations that include Peten, El Remate, Lake Atitlan, and Antigua. The curators of this one-of-a-kind retreat value self-care, exploration, education, gratitude, and sustainability efforts with nature.

Granafort, an international organization focused on sustainable investments in agriculture and the communities that sustain them, is a supporter of a local project in Guatemala– Las Azucenas. At Las Azucenas, high grade tropical hardwoods are cultivated with the results of ecosystem regeneration. This designated area is also a habitat of restoration for over 200 species on the verge of extinction, and it employs over 150 Qʼeqchiʼ Mayan families from the neighboring town of Concoma, Guatemala. The impacts of this initiative are multiple, and with the partnership of the Good Always and the Stones of Light Education Foundation, each 10,000 trees purchased supports one year of education for at least 1,000 children through the foundation.
In addition to community impact, this retreat ensures participants are given opportunities of self-care and personal development through The GratitudeGram, a wellness company based on fundamental values of human connection, kindness, positivity and inspiration. The GratitudeGram takes part in the daily programming of this retreat to ensure participants are given opportunities for self-reflection, human connection and the experience of being in a state of gratitude.

We are inviting a limited number of guests to this transformational wellness retreat to further immerse in the cultural legacy and energetic practices of the Mayan. Guided by world-renowned practitioners, we will visit Mayan historical sites, pristine lakes, and islands, learn about the Mayan calendar, familiarize ourselves with our individual Mayan energies, engage in daily gratitude journaling, practice restorative breath and movement through yoga, and many more adventures that bring peace and joy.
