About This Center

Alquimia is a sacred space designed for delivering a unique learning experience, an intentional place where creative arts, ancestral medicine and conscious living are combined for self-realization and metamorphosis to occur.

At Alquimia we encourage the expression of the inner truth through the physical and the spiritual, the uplifting of the mind as a clear function of a more profound connection with all the parts. We host individuals from any paths of life and assist with the therapy of choice.

We offer events, workshops and Diploma courses all year-round, embracing playfully meditation, sensorial enhancement, brain entrainment, dream therapy, trance dance and a variety of subjects like shamanic medicine, mycology, herbalism and alchemy. 

Let Alquimia guide your journey into the marvels of nature and the Self.

“This is true freedom: to be capable of leaving ourselves, crossing the boundaries of our little world to open up the universe.” ― Alejandro Jodorowsky

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan
 

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.
