GENERAL RETREAT DESCRIPTION
It will be a week where we hold the frequency of gratitude through action for the whole valley. It is a challenge that will push the warrior within us, as some path and hike that we will do requires a certain level of agility.
We will hike to the top of Diamante Waterfall, which is the biggest in Central America, and there we will spend the night at the Diamante Cave.
A River Bouldering experience though Rio Morete, that will definitely be challenging as we will walk in the untouched Jungle.
A first Temazcal, to be able to approach this journey in the best way and with a clear mind and a second to conclude our work and celebrate.
During the whole time there will be a Fire lit, we will feed it and keep it burning, as it will be there for us and for our prayers and songs, helping us hold our intention strong.
In between the 2 hikes we will take a day to rest our bodies and mind.
The first day there will be a drum session around the Fire Circle, and the last day we will be joined by our community, to celebrate the work done, with a beautiful last Feast.
The Cost is $820 per person.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
Here is a short summary of the offerings during our one-week deep immersion into ethnobotany and cosmovision united.
- Opening Temazcal
Our entire journey is a leaning of balance of what we are taking from this land.
- Powwow of the Standing Drum
We will fill this hearth with singing and dancing to the beat of our combined creation.
- Prayer to the Wind
We will venture into the mountain in the practice of walking in wild precision and perception of each step, as jaguar.
- Prayer to the earth
We offer this day to learn all that one can learn in a crash course into ethnobotany and preservation of sacred plants. We shall give homage and song to the beautiful plant spirits grown here. Our hand may be guided to work with many different plant spirits during this time.
- Prayer to the water
We will journey on foot via river to see untouched and primal forest as it was 1000 years ago.
This journey is for those that are agile and able to cross great distances in treacherous terrain and is not for house cats.
Full body clay detox and ceremonial body painting.
- Prayer to the Fire
Our final payment will be for our safe journey experiencing the wilderness as jaguar.
Beyond our song, we honor the fire by giving of sugars, grains, sacred herbs and revered keepsakes to empower our prayer of gratitude.
Flower Blessings and circle of integration to bring our words to truth and complete relation.
We will bathe in smoke, steam, herbal tonic and each other's laughter.
- Feast of Completion
