Within the hour of our first meeting (at a Birth Center!) We knew the plants had brought us together to birth something beautiful into the world.
Tree of Light Retreats soon came into fruition. Offering womens ayahuasca journeys in Peru, with the ancient Shibibo lineage of well trained and practiced healers/Curanderas.
It is also our vision to offer experienced and well trained facilitators to hold space, offer guidance, and support to all who decide to invoke on the journey.
We hold these retreats, with the deep understanding that as we heal ourselves, we heal the world, and little by little the world changes. This medicine work has helped us and our families more than we could have imagined. Because of this we both feel deeply inspired to share it in a good way with those who feel the call to go deep.
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.
Sitting in the sisterhood, with the intention to heal our pasts and open our hearts as we drink for our grandmothers, our mothers, our sisters, and our children.
Though tree of lights focus and original vision is to host women only retreats, in the last while we have decided to open the space up a few times through the year to both men and women. As both of us have partners and children, and much of our personal medicine work has been with our families, we realized that this was important. Honoring the journey of the Masculine and Feminine and the real need for balance, love and respect in this walk together as human beings.
We feel so much gratitude for this amazing path. And Our continual prayer is that all those who come, truly receive the blessings of this work. With Courage, Humility and the Great Love guiding us all, falling into the wings of Grace and the light inside of us guiding our way.
Meegwetch. For all our relations.
