About this trip

The act of ritual is a common thread that has linked humanity throughout the ages, regardless of ethnicity, culture or religion. Our Rite of Passage Retreat is an introduction to Plant Medicine ceremony and ritual which brings a full understanding of Indigenous healing through power plants and shamanism. 

Ceremony and ritual, is an essential part of traditional Native healing. Because physical and spiritual health are intimately connected, body and spirit must heal together. Our healing ceremonies promote wellness by reflecting Indigenous conceptions of Spirit, Creator, and the Universe. Through this retreat, we help you gain a deeper connection to yourself, the world and everything in it.


This 7 day immersion includes:

  • Opening and closing fire ceremony
  • 2 sweat lodge ceremonies 
  • 1 San Pedro Temescal Ceremony
  • 2 Ayahuasca Ceremonies
  • Medicine song workshops
  • Daily yoga, meditation and sound bath
  • Beach time
  • Nature hikes
  • Delicious plant-based meals
  • Authentic Ecuadorian cuisine with fresh seafood
  • Plenty of down time and integration
  • Ongoing support if needed after retreat is over

Our priority for the week is to provide a sacred space for you to receive deep insights, inner healing and profound personal growth. Your experience will be guided by Hwaneetah and Aime, an amazing couple who embody the divine feminine and masculine in love. With their beautiful medicine music, strong prayers and heart opening medicine, these  two healers/ curanderos are the best in the region and create life changing ceremonies. 


Initiation rites are as fundamental to human growth and development as well as 

Rituals motivate and move us. Through these rituals and ceremonies, we will build a spiritual family and most importantly, we will create a path to your higher self and connection to oneness.
