We will spend 9 days together supporting a healthy yoga lifestyle to facilitate healing, growth and transformation in the tropical mountains of Brazil. ‘Alto Paraíso’ means high paradise. The setting for our retreat is known for its’ mystical waterfalls, ancient mountains, raw nature, and unique energy. Located on latitude 14, the same as Machu Picchu, this enchanted land is a destination for those on a quest for divine conscious alignment. Meet your highest potential at one of the densest crystal deposits on earth. Practice yoga and meditation among the colorful tropical waterfalls, learn the local traditions of Maracatu, and Capoeira, and explore the inner dimensions with the healing plant medicines of the forests of Brazil!
TERRA is a transformational experience designed to align you with the rhythms of nature through Yoga, Trekking and Ayahuasca. This secure environment in the heart of Brasil will help you Cleanse, Renew, Transform and Awaken.
The Terra journey attracts unique individuals who are seeking nothing less than the guidance and tools to reach their full potential in their conscious evolution as human beings. We begin our journey from a foundation of connection within our new tribe. Each individual is invited to share their unique gifts within a genuine, loving environment. From the first day of our journey, we establish collective agreements to facilitate the most effective and real communication without judgement or assumptions. The first couple of days will be spent practicing yoga asana, meditation, eating delicious, pure foods, and singing in the context of beautiful nature. Even though it is a short time, through these powerful practices, we can soften our borders and begin to bond as a group, finding strength, courage, and focus with the support of each other. We will end our first plant ceremony in silence. After a good rest, we will practice yoga asana, eat a delicious vegan breakfast, and then we will share our incites from the ceremony. Rather than staying up late talking the night of our work, we find it’s better to rest and digest our experiences first. After a good sleep and a strong practice, our energy is balanced and restored. This is the time when we are better able to articulate what is often an experience beyond words. The difference when we work with the plants as a group and share with each other as a group from this firm foundation of clarity and acceptance is very profound. As we are already connected from our group practices and experiences, the synchronicity and collective insight, evolution, and healing are quite evident. We are often able to help each other better than any therapist or ‘shaman’ when we share in this focused integration circle. In addition to the plant medicine ceremonies and the daily yoga practice, we will also be hiking and exploring some of the most beautiful land on earth, as well as witnessing and participating in the local culture. Sharing these experiences with each other makes them richer and more real. In the years that I have been facilitating these group journeys in South America with yoga and plant medicines, I have witnessed profound and lasting transformations. Letting go of old patterns that no longer serve, connecting with a deeper sense of purpose, and cultivating a lasting infectious bliss is like being born again. When we go through this rebirth with our tribe, they become like family. In addition to the growth and transformation, the therapy and healing, we also receive the gift of new strong and genuine friendships; one of life’s greatest treasures.
