About This Center

Aluantu in the tongue of the native Mapuche people, means ‘connecting to the light within.’

We are a holistic learning and healing center nestled in the Andes mountains in the Lake Region of northern Patagonia, Chile. We are dedicated to learning and personal transformation through the experience of connection to nature, to others and to the light within ourselves.

Our mission is to create a space in which the rediscovery of the natural world and the spiritual journey inward can be facilitated in a safe and nurturing environment.

We are extremely blessed and grateful to have experienced beautiful healing ceremonies and to have met the beautiful people. This place is truly magical. Fresh forest air, a majestic lake close by and with a beautiful volcano always in the background. - Naomi and Francois

Accommodations

Our lodge sits on the shore of Lake Rupanco in the middle of pristine nature and offers indoor accommodations for up to 36 people, with 9 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. Camping options are also available for guests who prefer to get even closer to nature.

Our Meeting Center is located just a few meters away from the Lodge. Its high ceiling, great acoustics, and large space area make it the ideal facility for holding workshops, practicing yoga, dance, meditation, music, and much more!

On our grounds you will find an old-growth forest with an unique area that offers an excellent space to hold workshops, sharing circles, sacred ceremonies, and other group activities. Feel free to make use of the central gazebo, tipi, stage, multi-person hammocks and/or fire pits as you see fit. In addition to this there are hiking trails and a beautiful waterfall where you can go to re-energize.

When it comes to activities, we offer nature walks, high altitude mountain treks, sweat lodge/Temascal, a multi-person nest style hammock, a lakeside hot tub, boat rides, beach fires, yoga sessions, massages, nutrition/cooking/baking classes, horseback riding and plant medicine.

Our season is from November to April and we organise meals, activities and airport transfer.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
