THE ART OF TRANSFORMATION

RETREAT AT THE DOOR OF THE AMAZON RAINFOREST OF COLOMBIA

April 02 - 10 2023

 
 
TRAVEL TO THE SOURCE SIBUNDOY (3).jpg

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,

Clara Sofia

WHERE YOU WILL STAY

The places were you stay are part of the experience.
During the retreat, you will  stay at the Healing House of Taita Mumtumbajoy named Ayen Bienestar, in pure nature. There are rooms for one person or couples with double beds and with private bathroom or shared bathroom. And there is one "cabana" a bit further in the forest, with a room with a double bed, a kitchen and a private jacuzzi for an immersive experience in the jungle.

 

WHERE YOU WILL GO

The program is an immersion into the Kamentsa culture, merging traditional sacred art & music and power plants from the Amazon Rainforest. Therefore the retreat is rythmed by plant treatments and Ayahuasca ceremonies and the discovery of art & craft from the Kamentsa people.
You will receive plant treatments that will meet the outcome of your consultation with Taita, ancestral ostheopathy & massages, a bed of flowers to harmonise your energy and detox, besite 3 Ayahuasca ceremonies.
You will attend a concert playing the sound of the Amazon Rainforest, receive a blessing from a medicine-abuela and visit the place where she does traditional weaving and chakiras, and visit an art gallery specialised in representation of Ayahuasca cosmology in art.
The retreat is also an immersion in nature,  with the relation to plants that you will drink but also collect by yourself in the forest, the hike to the hot-springs where you will receive healing from the water element and where you will stay, in the ceremony House surrounded by nature.
During the whole trip you will have food and transportation.

* The thermal waters of Salado are located in the mountain of the Balsayaco path next to the Putumayo River. The path through the mountain is divided into three spaces, the first is along a cement path until it climbs, then on a plain with a natural floor and finally the descent to the hot springs through the roots of the ancient trees in the area. In this area you can see thermal waterfalls, the temperature of the water allows you to live the experience of cooking potatoes and eggs. It should be clarified that in the same place there is the passage of a stream with cold water that allows regulating the temperature of the water. In addition, there is a view of the great Putumayo River.


If you wish to extend your stay, we are happy to put you in touch with our partners who can help you organize your trip.
