Wholeness Journey
March 11-19, 2017

Do you long for something greater? Are you hungry to break out of your day-to-day life and connect with God, yourself, and others in a deep and powerful way?

This is an invitation to embark on a journey outside of your everyday, emerge into a new culture, and discover yourself in a new way. To adventure, minister, and discover the beauty of wholeness in mind, body, and spirit through Jesus Christ.

Join us on a Wholeness Journey to Guatemala!

Guatemala is rich in natural beauty—from the shores of Lake Atitlan, to the peaks of its 37 volcanoes, this Central American nation is one of the most beautiful in the world.

Sadly, there are ugly things happening in the lives of women in Guatemala.

  • Guatemala has the highest tolerance for violence against women in all of Latin America.

  • Infidelity and domestic abuse are rampant.

  • Women are often treated as second-class citizens.

The women of Guatemala long to know their true worth and value. They need to know they can be made whole through the redeeming power of Jesus Christ.

Will you join us to discover and share God’s freedom, healing, and wholeness in Guatemala?

Your trip leaders, Christina Barnes and Jessica Dahl, are both trained missionaries and yoga instructors. They bring the combined experiences of The Beyond Project and Beauty for Ashes to lead you in this unique combination of a women’s mission trip and a Christian yoga retreat.

You’ll start your trip along the charming cobble-stoned streets of Antigua, as you get to know your team and pray into what the Lord has in store for your Wholeness Journey. Then you’ll head to Lake Atitlan, one of the most beautiful places in the world, where you’ll spend five days refreshing your soul at the stunning eco-resort, Isla Verde. You will conclude your trip back in Antigua where you’ll create action steps to keep walking into the whole and purposeful life God has uniquely designed for you!

During your stay at Lake Atitlan, you will:

  • Attend inspirational workshops on spiritual growth and maturity

  • Enjoy rejuvenating yoga classes and organic meals

  • Adventure in the natural beauty of the lake by kayak, hiking, or zipline (optional)

  • Learn to share your unique story, giftings, and wholeness journey with others

  • Host women’s retreats where you’ll minister to hurting women of Guatemala

Most of the women you’ll minister to are from indigenous and very poor backgrounds. Many of them have suffered abuse, been abandoned, widowed, or are single mothers. They will range in age from early 20s to 80s, but all will be hungry to learn more about their true worth and value in Christ.

Why Yoga?

We were created as body, mind, and spirit. The exercise of yoga can help us:

  • Become more connected with our physical body

  • Increase mental clarity

  • Attune our spiritual ears in meditation and listening prayer to become more sensitive to hearing God’s voice in our lives

Through this unique missions trip and personal retreat experience you will delve to new depths of faith, adventure, and wellness. Stepping out of your comfort zone, serving women in need, and pressing into the wholeness God has for you.

Are you ready to embark on your Wholeness Journey to Guatemala?
