This retreat is a collaboration, and a calling to heal the wounded feminine we as women, collectively carry in our bodies. These wounds show up as mother issues, competition with other women, excess striving to succeed, issues with body-image, shame around sexuality, and blockages around the voice.
This retreat is about healing in sisterhood.
We heal, when we remember our Divine Mother.
We heal when we open to receive her unconditional, boundless love and allow it to purify our hearts, minds and bodies.
This is our sacred work. Are you in? Are you ready to...

You'll be initiated by a community of women who hold a vision for your most wild, present, fully-expressed, and spiritually awakened version of yourself.
The retreat will be held at Equilibrium Healing Resort—an off grid wellness sanctuary located in the mountains one hour south of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Fully immersed in nature, this digital detox will support your body-mind in resetting with the cycles of nature. This property is solar powered and spring fed.
We'll begin each day with a spiritual practice of a purification and grounding ritual to connect you with the spirits and elements of nature. After breakfast, you'll be guided you through different shamanic healing practices and ceremonies to support you in liberating the wounded feminine from your somatic-spiritual bodies.
Amy and Luzclara will help you track the patriarchal patterns, and ancestral traumas stored in your body. In this process of liberation, you'll find your most wild and divinely feminine expression and be encouraged to show up as fiercely and joyfully in your truth.
In the afternoons, time to rest and enjoy a healing spa treatment, spend time writing, spend time in the natural spring fed pool, ozone hot tub, or hike to secret waterfall, to integrate your experiences and rituals. We will also have time for the beach, and to visit a local Mexican market.
This retreat is for those seeking a true digital detox and immersion in nature. It’s for women, who want to experience the profound transformation that can happen when we surrender to the spirit of the Pachamama, the divine feminine source of creation that loves you unconditionally. It’s for women, who want to learn how to step up and learn how to be a fierce ally, in a sacred sisterhood.
The collective container that we will co-create together, is one that will help you anchor your living Spirit on earth, so that you feel the confidence to fully express yourself and live into your gifts in this lifetime.

Luzclara is a Chilean medicine woman, Great grandmother, ceremonial leader, shamanic practitioner, and sound healer who dedicates her life to the healing of herself, Mother Earth and all of her beings. She has been working for the last 40 years in awakening the sacred feminine energies in the planet using ancient methods of ritual and magic. She now resides in the Sacred Valley in Perú after a powerful call from her heart to be in this part of the Earth.
She has trained and studied with different indigenous shamans around the world; among them, shamans from Chile, the Q´ero shamans of Peru, the Quichua Ayahuasca shamans of the Amazon jungle of Ecuador and Sun Bear, Chippewa Medicine Man of North America. Her travels have included India and Tibet where she has deepened her sound healing techniques.
For the last 40 years she has been uniting traditions of the Americas and leading ceremonies and workshops in both hemispheres.
As a young woman, Luzclara left her country after the violent takeover of the military dictatorship in Chile. She went to North America where she lived nine years of exile, first doing much political work for her country, and then after a painful illness, she realized she wasn't "walking her talk", but instead, living a big contradiction: Fighting for peace. Since then, she redirected her life to the healing of herself, and others.
In 2018 she had a vision where she would bring women together to pray for Mother Earth in different parts of the planet, so she started the Intercultural Women Convergence, the first one being held in Pisaq, Valley of the Inkas in September 2019 where 560 women came from 35 different countries. Also 13 Grandmothers sharing their wisdom.
