Due to the recent fires in Ojai, this retreat has been moved to Lake Castaic.
Please join us for a two ceremony night retreat of healing, joy 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 north of Los Angeles near Lake Castaic.
Ceremony is held inside a large lodge with fireplace. Each participant will have a sleeping mattress on the floor, and there is a shared bathroom.
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.
The second night follows the same format.
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.
