Empower. Reconnect. Rejoice!
Join us for a week of empowerment through connecting back to our true nature! In this Women's Power Retreat with sacred plant medicines and ancient teachings, you will have the opportunity to explore the self and understand the true nature of your reality alongside women from all over the world. We will have special guest women leaders to assist in the teachings and share in the experience as you take a pause for your own healing.
This will be a special gathering honoring the mystery and the magic of sacred women walking on this sweet Earth. We will be Calling on Great Spirit to dance, sing, heal and offer to the four sacred directions. We will be calling to the memory of our ancestors spiraling through this Mother Earth, we will recognize each other as DAUGHTERS OF THE STARS, and as sisters we celebrate our true essence, our divine feminine elixir that has been brewing inside of our womb-caldron. We, Sacred women, will gather during this special week in nature by Mother ocean and we will celebrate the path of the medicine of the Great womb.
We invite you to join Ayllu Medicina, our medicine family, and transform your life with intention and guidance for healing on this retreat. This special women's retreat will include:
*Ancient Teachings of the inner technology and secondary functions of the womb
*Male and female energetics
*13 moon calendar & meditation for closing cycles
*1 Ayahuasca ceremony
*2 San Pedro ceremonies - 1 sweat lodge and 1 power walk by the river
*Sweat Lodge, Mother Earth womb cleansing ceremony With Sandra Jaramillo (medicine women from Colombia)
*Rhythms of our Universe (shamanic journey with drums)
*Ritual for unbinding (removing codependent cords with the fire)
*Natural healing modalities from our ancestors in Ecuador and South América
*Detox and balance the womb and second chakra, with healthy foods, juices and natural medicines
This week will include ceremonies with plant medicines which are known to cleanse the mind, body, and spirit and are healing both physically and emotionally. The master plants are here to assist you on your journey to begin the inner-work, to expand your consciousness, and to re-connect to all that is. This 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, and energy.
Beyond ceremonies with Ayahuasca and San Pedro, we will also be working with Tobacco medicines, sweat lodges, shamanic drum journeys, individual healings and cleanses, womb wisdom circles, holistic health and nutrition, yoga and meditation, and beach walks. All of this with the guidance from our team plus special guest teachers.
The week will be guided by Aime, Hwaneetah and other medicine women/teachers. Their purpose is to share medicine, prayers, music, and intention for healing with whoever is called to share in this journey. With their original music and multiple instruments, resonant prayers, and heart-opening medicine, these 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.
To support your process during this week of medicine and to provide you with tools for your life, we will practice daily yoga, breathwork, and meditation. Classes will be held in a beautiful hardwood floor open-air yoga studio where mats, blankets, and blocks are all provided.
This 8-day Women's Power 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 tropical forest, near Manglaralto, Ecuador. It's a few minutes from the Pacific Ocean and less than 10 minutes away from Montañita, the world-famous surf capital of South America.
