Please join us for a weekend of healing and transformation. This will be an intensive weekend of work with the Elders and Plant Medicines to aid in your journey. We will be meeting in a remote, private and tranquil location, nestled at a rustic camp in the forest in San Bernardino.
We will begin our weekend with an herbal plant bath which will help harmonize our energies and prepare us for ceremony. Then we will have an orientation to answer any questions you may have.
In Colombia, Ayahuasca Ceremonies last all night. We begin with the Circle of Word, a time in which we utilize the medicines Ambil and Mambe to help weave the words of the Elders. These discussions are generally on topics picked by the Elders to help us understand the teachings of the ancestors, and help integrate the messages of the medicine. We drink twice in the night, with traditional therapies being performed in between.
You will receive a personal spiritual cleansing and healing ceremony during the weekend performed by one of the Elders.
After the second cup and a period of reflection, our musicians will begin to play the beautiful music which will help you focus during the ceremony. Music is generally played until dawn or later.
This is a great weekend for folks new to the Medicines to learn and get to know the medicine. For those of you who have already experienced the Remedy before, the weekend is a great way to reconnect and to learn the ancient traditions of the Ancestors in Colombia.
A deposit is required to hold your space, and attendance is limited. Our retreats always sell out, so please book early if you have a preferred date. The exact location of the Retreat will only be given to confirmed attendees, and only released the night before the retreat.
Every participant is required to become a member of our branch of the Oklevueha Native American Church. This provides legal protection for all of us.
