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.

Only now that I am back in my home life, am I realizing the extent of how deeply this journey has impacted me. The founders, the facilitators, and the other group participants were more full of sweetness and more fascinating that I could have anticipated. The jungle itself took hold of my core, and the indigenous people we met, particularly the Shamans and Achuar leaders, shared their insights and kindness in ways that will stay with me forever. I am beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to experience this journey, and my life is indescribably richer because of it. Thank you Thank you Thank you.
