Retreat InfoAbout the Retreat:
A three day transformational, inner journey with the Amazonian tea and other master plants. Our Brazilian style ceremonies are eclectic and guided by sacred songs from different shamanic traditions, celebrating life, love and the healing power of nature. This is an inner journey of healing and connection with your heart & soul. A deep dive into the layers of the self to walk the path of transformation and self-realization. The medicines of the forest can help release blockages and heal traumas by stimulating your innate healing energy. The expansion of consciousness allows for a reconnection to your higher self in order to unleash your full potential.
Rapé (tobacco snuff) and sananga (healing eye drops) are also offered during the ceremonies, to deepen the experience. All music is live. We have been guiding ceremonies in our community since 2005 and have extensive experience with different shamanic practices. We hold non-traditional ceremonies, not connected to a single medicine path, preferring to embrace the many different spiritual paths we have come across.Description of Services:
Each journey is unique, as the context, state of health, expectations, current life processes, diet and the plants themselves influence each experience. In these sessions, we provide a safe space for each person to work on themselves.
Two ceremonies will be held on Friday and Saturday evenings. We begin each ceremony with a sharing circle and finish the retreat with a day of integration and sharing. The official program ends on Sunday, after lunch. Many participants choose to stay extra days to integrate and to enjoy connecting with the community after the retreat. You can also book a naturopathic consultation, massage, acupuncture or mediumship session. You are also welcome to arrive several days before the beginning of the retreat in order to prepare for the ceremonies by disconnecting from everyday life, adapting to the diet and taking some time for introspection and meditation.Practitioners:

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
We believe that Mother Nature is the greatest healer and many people who come here experience healing just from being on the land itself. We try to keep things simple to allow people to connect with the Earth and the elements.
The final day of the retreat is a day of integration where participants are encouraged to share their experiences with the group. The facilitators are there to help answer any questions and it is a day to slowly prepare to go back into the world after two nights of ceremony. Participants are welcome to stay on longer to rest or join in on community life to help integrate their experience. We send out an aftercare document and participants are welcome to contact us if they need further guidance.Intake Process:
