Why did we choose Lake Atitlán as our cocoon?
It is beyond words to describe the intimate calling I have to visit Lake Atitlán. But I’ll do my best :)) Years ago, when I first began studying South American Shamanism, I started hearing about Lake Atitlán and the ceremonies, gatherings, and retreats that were happening there. It was then I could hear my heart strings pulled and played . The colors of the threads woven into the fabric of the Mayan culture, my soul curious. The bottom of this lake magically, some say, has never been found, it was created 85,000 years ago by a volcanic eruption. With volcanic energy surrounding the lake I can imagine the fierce transformative power available to bring up what is hidden deep inside of us. Recently, a friend of mine helped confirm this calling by giving me a book which takes place on the shores of Lake Atitlán, Secrets of the Talking Jaguar: Memoirs from the Living Heart of a Mayan Village written by a shaman named Martin Prechtel. The teachings in this book as well as the teachings gifted to me through my studies of shamanic cultures in Peru, India, the British Isles, and North America have revealed much needed wisdom to help bridge and heal separation wounds culturally and personally. I am honored to put my ear to the ground with you and listen for the ancestors teachings held by this sacred land and Lake Atitlán.

Sophie Howell is an artist and a mom with a passion for leading women. FUN, authenticity, and holistic living are core values. If you know me I never settle for good, because why be good when you can be great? I like for things to be real, I like to get things done, I like to try new things. I’ve only got time for the magic and have lead many retreats and groups towards that goal. My background is in Psychology, Art and Leadership Development. During my time as an assistant to new thinkers of our time I developed the ability to help clarify people’s ideas and usher in a practical plan for achievement whether that be through events, workshops, or parties. I enjoy to-do lists, community, travel, and creating a beautiful new paradigm of JOY with other amazing women. I believe every person is a precious and sacred gift. Sophie is trained in Harmonym which is a powerful but gentle energy balancing and healing practice from Naam Yoga Tradition.
