"It's impossible to say what wakes me each morning of the week I spend at Villa Sumaya retreat center in Guatemala, but it's never my alarm. As I emerge from sleep, I let my eyes soak up the view before me, out the wide-open balcony door overlooking Lake Atitlan and her guardian volcanoes. Yet another day of mindfulness in this potent, precious place awaits. Lago de Atitlan, in the western highlands of beautiful Guatemala is known as an energy vortex. " ~Rachel Zurer
