9 Days and 8 Nights of Soul Exploration and Plant Medicine Journey

 

This transformational retreat will take you on a journey to the depths of consciousness to unlock the power of healing within your soul. Join us in Pisac, in the heart of the Sacred Valley, among the mystical energy of the Peruvian Andes, as we travel together to remember who we are and to answer our soul’s deepest calling.

We were each born with a unique purpose. We chose to manifest in this physical body in order to fulfill our calling, to experience the full range of humanity, and to continue the evolution of our soul’s growth.  As humans, we connect with our souls to remember we are more than just our minds and our bodies – that we are eternal beings with infinite powers and endless possibilities.

When we live in alignment with our divine purpose, we live in a state of flow. We experience the joys of putting our gifts and talents to use in the service of ourselves, our families, and our communities. We KNOW the universe has a plan for us, and TRUST that everything happens in divine timing for the highest good of all involved.

However, as human beings in this “earth school,” we often forget our divine nature, our essence, and the reason we are here. From an early age, we might have been told that we’re too much or not enough. We adapted to others’ expectations in order to fit in, but every time we changed course to gain someone else’s approval, we dimmed the spark within ourselves. We began to believe in the limitations our mind created.  For many of us, family and societal conditioning has defined what “success” is. Yet, having worked so hard to attain this “success,” we now realize we are no closer to fulfillment. We’re left wondering if there’s more to life than running in a hamster wheel.

When our thoughts, feelings and actions are out of alignment with our divine purpose, the resulting imbalance creates energy blockages that often manifest into physical, emotional or psychological conditions. However challenging they might be, these times can serve as a wake up call for us to look closely at our relationship to ourselves, to journey back to our heart so we can feel more connected to our truth, our visions, and our dreams. Even when we are at the rock bottom, there’s a part of us from deep within, however buried it is, that knows we are meant to experience life more fully and meaningfully.

Plant medicine has been used in ceremonies by the indigenous peoples to unlock the body’s own healing power and to bring about spiritual insights that can connect us to deeper levels of creativity and heart-centered living. The divine spirit of the plant medicine has the ability to show us what lies beneath the surface, often at our subconscious level, our patterns of thoughts, beliefs and behaviors that keep us from experiencing life fully, as well as our truth and potential. Imagine your consciousness expanding, and you realize you are so much more than who you think you are, and so much more is possible in this wide and wild universe. Do you wonder what your life would look like if you don’t limit yourself to one way of thinking and being?

Join us on this intimate journey to remember your divinity, reconnect with the parts of yourself that you have kept hidden, reignite your passions, reclaim your potentials, and envision and create the future you want from your deepest knowing. The moment is NOW to be your own conscious creator of an authentic and meaningful life.
