About this trip

~We believe that a new way of life is possible - one which embodies learning from the sacred medicines and spirits of Mother Earth.

~We believe that the journey of healing begins in the pause.  We invite you to join us on this retreat - where we will pause together in sacred ceremony.


This plant medicine retreat is a unique opportunity to sit with and learn about ancient practices in a serene, tropical oasis in coastal Ecuador.  The experience is a retreat - meaning a time to withdraw from your everyday reality to reflect and bring more intention into your consciousness.  During this time of retreat, we will work to reorganize all the dimensions of our being into one direction - including our body, mind, emotion,  energy, and Heart. This June retreat will be unique as the focus will be Technology of the Heart and Expeditions into the Heart. We're going to learn about heart coherence, and synchronicity between systems in our bodies.  


Here's a preview of what will be included from our guest facilitator: 

"Since the last time we forgot, we've been creating our reality from our brains, disconnected from our hearts, and as a result, humanity lives separated from the consciousness of the Truth of our connectedness with The ALL. Separated from our own body and its technology, separated from Mother Earth, from our Father Sun, and Creation.


Guided by our biggest electromagnetic field, our heart, we will experience some simple and easy techniques to achieve this coherence. By bringing awareness into our hearts, we can experience a quantum leap by journeying our consciousness from our minds, into our hearts.


We´re going to learn ancient meditations and techniques, to answer our sacred and eternal heart’s call. This radical consciousness movement impacts what we’ve known as reality.

  • Heart technology 
  • Basic understanding of our electromagnetic fields - torus or toroid.
  • Trinity Heart Meditation and Activation
  • An ancient way to reconnect our heart with our sacred Universal Mother’s heart, represented by Mother Earth - and our Universal Father’s heart, represented by Father Sun.
  • Expeditions into the heart:
    • Moving our consciousness from the brain into our heart.
    • Imagery, a spiritual technique to live and create from the heart.
    • Exploring our sacred space of the heart; the space that holds our soul's history and spiritual guides, through Imagery exercises and meditations.
    • Exploring the sacred, tiny saint space of the heart (singularity, oneness)

 With the main focus on the heart, we will follow traditional ceremonies including Ayahuasca, San Pedro, and Tobacco medicines, and sweat lodges. We will also experience shamanic drum journey, individual healings and cleanses, womb wisdom circle, holistic health and nutrition, yoga and meditation, and nature and beach walks.


Your experience will be guided by Aime and Hwaneetah.  Their purpose in this world is to share medicine, prayers,  music, and intention for healing with whoever is called to share in this journey. With their beautiful medicine music, resonant prayers, and heart-opening medicine, these two healers are well-known in the region and will guide you in a life-changing healing process. 


Aime  and Hwaneetah speak fluent English, Spanish, and French and have been working with medicine for over 20 years and holding sweat lodges and ceremonies for 15 years. 


Our 7-day Plant Medicine Retreat will be a calm and quaint introduction to working with these sacred plant medicines in a safe and beautiful environment.  This retreat will be held at Bromelia Lodge, a healing sanctuary hidden in a lush jungly forest, at the bottom of a mountain near Manglaralto, Ecuador. It's minutes from a beautiful beach and less than 10 minutes away from Montañita, the world-famous surf town of South America. 


We invite you to join Ayllu Medicina, our medicine family and transform your life with intention and guidance for healing on this retreat.

This retreat with Ayllu Medicina at Bromelia Lodge was life changing for me. The communication from the booking of the retreat to arrival was consistent and supportive. I flew into South America late and they were sure to have a taxi set up for me right when I arrived which helped so much after traveling for days. The room was so cozy and clean and kept clean all throughout. The food was made with love and so delicious! Plant based meals and an abundance of Fresh fruit. Bromelia Lodge is so beautiful, it feels like your tucked away in the jungle next to a creek. Many quiet places all throughout to sit in silence and process or be with nature. The ceremonies were powerful. It was my first plant medicine retreat and I felt so safe and supported all throughout. There was plenty of help available and everybody was so kind. Hwaneetah and Aime hold such grounded authentic space. So humble and kind. I wouldn’t have wanted to have my first plant medicine retreat with anyone else. This being a Womens focused retreat Hwaneetah shared her wisdom on the womb. This information has changed my life and my relationship with my womb. So much healing to come and I am forever grateful. I will be back for a retreat next year! If your thinking of booking with Allyu Medicina you won’t regret it!

This was the BEST trip of my life. Truly a medicinal and transformational journey. Everyone was so warm, thoughtful and loving. The accomodations at Bromelia were amazing. All the leaders, shaman and helpers were so incredibly supportive and had very helpful tips to make your journey the best it could be. The food was amazing and prepared so thoughtfully and with so much love. The environment was so safe and respectful and truly nurturing. I highly recommend any retreat by the ayllumedicina family. It certainly won't be my last. Thank you!!

Eme and Juanita are an amazing team of shamans! I’ve had ceremonies before but never like the one I had thanks to them. They are incredibly in sink with powerful male and female energies. They are very knowledgeable and great musicians as well. They make you feel welcome from beginning to end and help you have a better understanding of your experience. Their words are always meaningful and wise. I look forward to meeting them again.
