Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
Preparing for a plant medicine retreat is crucial for a safe and transformative experience. At our retreat center, we take this preparation seriously by having participants fill out an intake form and schedule a video call appointment with us to discuss their upcoming retreat in detail. This helps us ensure that we are the right fit for the participant and that we can provide them with the support they need.
To further assist in preparation, we also provide a list of resources and a group chat for more immediate interaction closer to the retreat. Our ceremonies take place in a breathtaking location in the heart of the Jurumbaino River in the Amazon region of Ecuador. We are blessed to have our taita Tsentsek, who has over 50 years of experience, as our main Shaman. Tsentsek works alongside curandera Goddess Jhoselyn, who is directly trained under Tsentsek's lineage.
After the ceremonies, our cozy and peaceful home provides the perfect environment for post-ceremony integration. We hold integrative exercises, rituals, and community shares to help participants reflect on their experiences and integrate their insights into their daily lives.Intake Process:
At our retreat center, we place a great emphasis on ensuring that our participants are well-prepared for their upcoming retreat.
As part of this preparation, we require participants to complete an intake form and schedule a video call appointment with us to discuss their needs and expectations in detail. This process allows us to assess whether our retreat is the right fit for the participant and to identify any additional support they may require.
By taking these steps, we can create a personalized experience for each participant, tailored to their individual needs and goals. We believe that this level of preparation and attention to detail is essential for creating a safe, supportive, and transformative environment for our participants.Supplemental Modalities: Energetic Healing, Spiritual cleanses, Ancestral Practices, Abdominal Sobadas, Embodiment TherapiesPsychedelic Substances Offered: Ayahuasca, San Pedro, PsilocybinHow does this Center source medicine?:
