THE ART OF TRANSFORMATION
RETREAT AT THE DOOR OF THE AMAZON RAINFOREST OF COLOMBIA
April 02 - 10 2023
Immersion in the Kamëntsá indigenous culture, ancestral wisdom & sacred art from the Valley of Sibundoy, the door of the Amazon Rainforest
Ancestral Wisdom - Amazonian Plant Treatments - Ayahuasca - Sacred Art & Music - Meditation & Shamanic Travels - Walks in nature
I invite you to travel with me at the door of the Amazon Rainforest, in the sacred valley of Sibundoy, to receive healing from the heart of the forest. The guardians of this indigenous territory are the Kamëntsá, and the Inga tribes and it is in the Maloka - Ceremony House - of Taita Juan Mutumbajoy from the Kamëntsá people that we will stay and receive the ancestral wisdom of the Amazon Rainforest for 10 days.
Around the fire we will gather, share and receive private consultation from Taita (the title given to the traditional doctor who can serve the Ayahuasca or Yagé after minimum 25 years of service to his master in weekly ceremonies - Yagé is the name given to Ayahuasca in Colombia). Following this consultation, you will receive a specific treatment with Amazonian plants from the botanic garden of Taita, beside 3 Ayahuesca ceremonies. On the physical level, the treatment includes healing of the organs and the respiratory, circulatory, nervous and digestive systems. You will receive different plant-based drinks to purify the systems, ancestral massages, osteopathy and a harmonisation in a bed of flowers and plants from the garden of Taita.
Your intention is like a seed, and it will grow with you all along the journey and beyond, may it be related to the physical, spiritual or emotional bodies. What do you want to improve in your life? Your relationships, your health and body condition, your life … Ayahuasca is a spirit merging with your soul, acting like a scanner showing you what is good for you and what is toxic for you, in all levels of your life and opening the path of love. It can be shown to you in visions or as insights. Taita Mutumbajoy and his team are caring, and the healing process is soft. There is a lot of beauty and elegance in their work.
For the Kamëntsá people, art and music have an important place. It is a way to bring spirit into matter. All along the journey, we will meet Kamëntsá artists and visit special places such as Gerardo Chazoy, wood carving master specialised in traditional masks representing the culture of Yagé & expert in musicology inspired from the Amazon Rainforest; Mamita Pastora, medicine woman, mastress in the art of traditional weaving and chakiras; Benach Art Gallery, specialised in visionary art & local indigenous culture; and we will visit the painted murals all around the village of Sibundoy, representing the art of Yagé and the wood carving statues explaining the history and spirituality of Kamëntsá people. We will be guided all along this day for an immersion in their culture and customs, their mythology and history.
To complete this travel to the source, we will have a walk to the wells of water and bath in the hot springs to commune with nature and receive the healing of the water element.
Every day, I will offer multidimensional guided meditation and shamanic journeys to support your process with high vibrational healing frequencies from source.
We will share our experience and emotions at the fire to commune and grow together as one consciousness. The Earth, the plants, the trees, the humans, the divine, WE ARE ONE.
The retreat will be in Spanish and English with the possibility to have translation in French too.
Sibundoy is humid and fresh, so it is not hot there.
Made with love for you and the Earth,
