Your Sacred vortex
Lake Atitlán was created approximately 85,000 years ago in the wake of a volcanic eruption.
The lake has a mythic history known to have been a place of spiritual pilgrimage where ancient mayans would ferry a boat out to a temple now covered by the flood waters created by the volcanic eruption. Like the magical city of Atlantis, Atitlan is place of wonder and mystery, capturing the imaginations of all who enter.

Atitlantis 2021: What was it like?
Wow, what an epic experience learning how to grow mushrooms in the beautiful and historical Mayan land of Guatemala. I spent a week learning during the "Cosmic Cultivators" course, "Atitlantis," with @denvermycology and @fungiacademy. I connected with so many magical people & left feeling so inspired to change the world! We learned how to grow and cultivate various mushrooms, how to transfer spawn or agar, how to grown oysters outside, the benefits of micro-dosing, and how to hold space for someone during a trip. We took a trip to the Guatemalan jungle to visit an all women's Cacao farm collective and learned the process of growing/harvesting and preparing organic cacao with Cacao Source. We took an inspiring tour of an epic permaculture farm (it really gave you hope that anything was possible) Granja Tzikin. I stayed on the third floor of a bamboo temple at Lake Atitlan and had evening views w/my roomies of the volcano/lava erupting.
It was quite the sight to see! We even ended with an epic ceremony complete with fire jam. (I got into the zone and played the maraca for a couple hours) Thank you Chris and Harmony Rose for holding it down. Thanks for all the space holders, for the staff, for the chefs, for the tour guides. I can't wait to come back!!
