RETREAT AT THE DOOR OF THE COLOMBIAN AMAZON
With the Original Sacred Healing Arts of the Kamëntsá First Nation
A retreat full of poetry where the Mistress Ayahuasca enters in resonance with Arts, Music and the Kingdom of Plants to heal, transform and awake your soul to your true essence.
Amazonian Plant Treatments - Ayahuasca - Sacred Healing Art & Music - Meditation & Shamanic Travels - Walks in nature - Individual & Group Coaching Sessions for preparation & integration
I invite you to travel with me to Sibundoy at the door of the Colombian Amazon Rainforest for a life changing experience. An immersion in the poetry, beauty, wisdom and elegance of the Kingdom of the plants, where the truth is seen with love and no judgement.
In the forest, with the wisdom of the Kamëntsà First Nation, you will receive healing of your Soul to see, transform and awake to your true essence, to be in your full power and vitality.
The treatments can heal issues related to the physical body such as diseases, the emotional body such as life purpose, blockages in your life, relationship or family relations... anything that is causing you trouble in your life or just to enjoy your presence and whole being to receive guidance and healing.
The plants will detoxify and purge your body for you to see clearly your path and know who you are. The effect of that retreat will last for months, putting the right people and right situations on your path, guiding you to your soul path and true essence.
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 kindness in their work.
When you take the remedy, it is very important to have an intention to guide your healing process. 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? Find your purpose?
Taita Juan Mutumbajoy is a traditional doctor of the Kamëntsà tradition. From generations to generations, his family is transmitting the wisdom of the sacred and healing plants of the Amazon. He also knows about modern medicine. He has worked as a male nurse in hospitals and has studied mental disorders and psychology. He can then have a global understanding of healing, merging the ancestral and modern knowledge. During the retreat, we will receive private consultation from Taita - the title given to the traditional doctor who can serve the Ayahuasca or Yagé after a minimum 25 years of service to his master in weekly ceremonies. Following this consultation, you can choose to receive a specific treatment with Amazonian plants from the botanic garden of Taita, beside 3 Ayahuasca ceremonies. On the physical level, the treatment includes healing of the organs with a focus on the livers along with 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.
The Kamëntsá culture is very rich in art and music. And the purpose of art is healing, it is a way to bring spirit into matter. All along the journey, you 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; 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 the Kamëntsá people. We will take part in the preparations of the festival Betsnate and be guided all along this day for an immersion in the culture and customs, mythology and history of the Kamëntsá & Inga First Nations.
To complete this travel to the source, we will have a walk to the hot springs to commune with nature and receive the healing of the water element.
Every day, I will offer sharing circles and guided meditations & shamanic journeys to support your process. I also offer to accompany you before and after the retreat with 5 individual and group sessions.
We will share our experiences to grow together as one consciousness.
The Earth, the plants, the trees, the humans, the divine, WE ARE ONE.
The retreat will be in Spanish, English & French.
Sibundoy is humid and fresh.
Made with love for you and the Earth,
Taita Juan Mutumbajoy

WHAT PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS SAY
During this retreat, a true 360° immersion in the Amazon rainforest, Clara was the catalyst for my connection with the beautiful souls of the group. It was a profound physical, emotional, psychic and spiritual journey, the meaning of which continues to appear long after.
Thank you Clara for your sweetness and strength
ANNE P. Nurse
"The shamanic retreat in the putumayo organized by Clara was one of the most incredible things I have experienced.
Everything in this week is organized to connect to oneself, to the group and to greater than oneself.
The place was wonderful, the meals made by a super balanced and varied cook, the meditations and ceremonies intense and powerful.
I came away from this week transformed, accomplished and...very eager to do another week.
Thanks to Clara for this fabulous experience.
ERIC D. COACH
Now, in my life there will always be the before and after my first Colombian retreat with Clara. I say 1st because I feel that this is only the beginning of the adventure with Clara. If I have to talk about the organization, then I will say bravo!! at no time did I feel lost or insecure. The place where we stayed was magnificent in immersion in the forest where we could admire the fauna and flora every day. A chef just for us who made us delicious dishes. Even if a common thread was given for food in connection with the needs of the body to reach a high level of spirituality, Clara knows how to adapt to the specificity of each ONE.
Beyond this organizational aspect, the activities proposed and the ceremonies were of very very good quality. Clara carefully chose the speakers. The retreat program was fluid between treatments. purifying, integrating rest, Ayahuesca ceremony at the heart of tradition with the master of ceremonies, the Taita, impressive by his charisma while being accessible and very soft. I salute the solidarity, the investment of the group that we formed. I went there to connect to my sacred feminine and the introspective work favored by the taking of the Ayahuesca granted me the healing of the sacred masculine so I can access the reconnection with my feminine. Retirement is a long way and sometimes a big stripping allowing us to emphasize what we must work on in priority to move forward and come back with material to "study" because that is what it is about, work on yourself, put light on our shadows, remove blockages and access healing! and that is what happened to me in this retreat. And all thanks to a well-managed and very caring organization on Clara's part.
