9-Day Ayahuasca Retreat
About this Retreat
In this retreat, we use sacred plant medicine Ayahuasca to help you connect with the spirit of the universe and the wisdom within in order to bring peace, love, and clarity to your life. Our 9-day retreat is held every month, and features two Ayahuasca ceremonies, one San Pedro ceremony, and a Temazcal (Sweat Lodge) ceremony. We include a mindful yoga practice throughout the retreat that integrates breathwork and movement as another form of medicine to support your transformation. You’ll also have the opportunity to swim in the ocean, learn to surf, witness epic sunsets, go horseback riding, connect with your retreat cohort who becomes like family, and enjoy nutritional, high vibration meals. This retreat is a holistic experience that is truly life-changing.

What Else to Expect
Facilitators and Medicine People
We only work with experienced medicine people and facilitators that have trained for years with plant medicines. Our compassionate and well-trained healers share their teachings, healings, songs, capabilities with integrity and honor. We work with bilingual Shamans, and ceremonies are conducted in English.
Ou, facilitator and team are all here to prepare and guide you through the process. We offer consultations facilitator before and after the Ayahuasca experience to discuss questions and share your experience. We are also available for post-retreat consultations via Skype.
Throughout the retreat, we offer several opportunities for integration and sharing in order to process your experience in a safe and comfortable way. Both our Shamans as well as retreat facilitators are here for you to support you through your experience and transform your insights from the medicine into actionable steps.
Our ceremonies are limited to a maximum of 10 participants in order to make sure that the Shaman can take care of everyone individually during the ceremony. This creates a very unique and personalized atmosphere, which separates us from other retreat centers, who work with much larger groups.
Preparing for your Retreat
Setting your Intention
The plant medicine works best if you have a clear intention going into ceremony. The more clear your intention, the better chance you get clarity and the answers you are seeking. During our initial interview, we will coach you on intention setting if you request assistance.
In order to prepare your body for plant medicine, we recommend a cleansing diet at least a week to two weeks in advance. This diet excludes red meat, pork, caffeine, onion and garlic, acidic fruits, fermented foods, alcohol, refined sugar, excessive salt and spicy foods.
All guests must avoid alcohol and recreational drugs before attending our retreat (minimum 2 weeks).
Please advise us on any irregular heart condition or chronic high blood pressure.
Please contact us if you have any concerns or/and questions.
We will make sure to discuss all details and preparations prior to your retreat.
" If you have been looking into other retreats, save yourself the time, they have it all right here. I look forward to returning one day."
