~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.
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.
