      About this trip

      A Pachamama Journey offers the rare privilege to have a profound immersion with intact Indigenous people. You will be invited into their ancestral culture, providing direct experience to learn from an uninterrupted lineage of wisdom amongst the vibrant forest. This remote environment becomes curiously familiar as it awakens an ancient memory, stored in our very DNA, of a natural and harmonious way of living and being.

      You will be welcomed at Indigenous-owned lodges and villages that offer the unique opportunity to engage in intimate conversations and activities such as interpretive rainforest hikes, river trips in canoes and kayaks, cultural practices and traditions, and shamanic ceremonies.


      ''A rich, intense, and awe-inspiring adventure into the jungle and into our hearts. The journey leader, Steve, and our interpreter, Estefania, were trustworthy, kind, and highly capable. All of our accommodations and journeys were excellent. Best of all was the experience of being held as we swam in ancient waterfalls, connected with the locals, and experienced the deep wilderness. Life-changing!''  Joseph A. - April Rainforest Immersion 2022

      "This trip rejuvenated my soul. I'm teaching my students with greater joy and dedication than I have in years. "  Alice H. - August Rainforest Immersion 2022

      " If you want to work on yourself in a way that can truly transform your life and deeply understand and appreciate the beauty and biodiversity of the natural world and the wisdom of the indigenous tribes that call the Amazon home, this is where you should be." 

      Simon M. - New Year Invitational Journey, 2022
