Las Pirámides Meditation Centre - Other Activity San Marcos La Laguna - Guatemala

The epitome of peace and contemplation, Las Pirámides has a vision to “light the world”. The courses here are designed to initiate and reconnect people with their spiritual path, to help them find balance and harmony through the study of philosophy and alternative psychology and the practice of meditation and yoga.

Chatty was the first person to notice the powerful energy of San Marcos and set up Las Pirámides 11 years ago, based around a temple first built in Guatemala City. The moon course is her creation and starts one day after every full moon although participants may join for a session (yoga at 7.00 a.m., metaphysics at 10.00 a.m., meditation at 5.00 p.m., $4 - $6), a day ($18), a week ($119), a month ($480), as and when they wish. The fourth week is a silent retreat. Prices, except for individual sessions, include accommodation and access to a communal kitchen.

The sun course lasts three months and can only be taken after completion of the moon course. The Oracle Spiritual Retreat takes from 21 days to a year. There are also various holistic and massage treatments available. The center is non-religious.

Las Pirámides has a fantastic library that is free for all to use. Simply leave some ID as security. Open from Monday to Friday 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
