Tree of Light Retreats
Our vision, our dream and our deep calling is to bring women together to experience a journey of deep healing with Ayahuasca through the Shipibo lineage of trained and practiced healers. It is also our vision to offer experienced and well trained facilitators to hold space, offer guidance, and support to all women who decide to invoke this journey in retreat. Before meeting, we both received strong visions in ceremony about creating retreats for women. In all ancient cultures there would always be a time where women would come together and do their sacred work.
Without the distraction of family, work, expectations etc. A time to sit in the sacred sisterhood and take the time to heal, to grow, to connect with our deepest parts and come back to what is truly important in this life. The both of us have spent years doing deep healing work with the plants as our teachers through traditional dietas and traditional ceremonies and we feel strongly that the medicine has united us to share this powerful wisdom with women in this way.
Together we can unite in sisterhood to heal our pasts and open our hearts as we drink for our grandmothers, our mothers, our sisters, and our children. After becoming mothers ourselves, we’re reminded each time we look into our children’s eyes just how important this work is for the generations to come.
It is with great honor, humility and respect for this journey, for us to hold space for any courageous women willing to devote this time to their healing and remembrance.

I have never written about my experience of a ceremony before. However I felt forced by an intelligence, other than my own (you probably know what I mean). In the 'Tree of Light' ceremony I sat in a few days ago I encountered a very unusual energy. As Junita sang her Icaros I felt as if we're being gently educated in a new 'grammar' for love and healing. I could not understand a single word of what Junita was singing. Yet it was as if I was being gracefully, lovingly invited into the shade of an ancient tree where light and dark danced in ancient wisdom together. All the most profound human experiences are unwordable. For me this experience reminded me of the butterfly-collectors dilemma. Immediately upon pinning the butterfly to the cork board the most important aspect was lost. Wittgenstein said "when you name me, you negate me" - so I shall resist the urge to use clumsy pins, and scruffy cork to collect this experience for you. Only to say that - I saw a magnificent 'creature', created from light and dark, in the jungle of my own experience. If destiny is kind I may yet glimpse it again before this physical form evaporates. Love and gratitude for the exceptional support and professional care guys :)

It has been such a beautiful journey watching the amazing transformations that take place in these retreats. I have been blessed to sit through a few, and have seen powerful things unfold. Working in this shipibo lineage allows a different kind of remembering to take place. A memory from our not too distant past, when our ancestors would walk in balance with the earth and sky. A reharmonizing happening inside these ceremonies. The Maloka the womb of the Great mother, birthing something new and sacred every other night. Coming back to the beating heart. The ancient song that lives inside of us. The light that is hiding deep inside of us waiting for its chance to shine so bright ...
