      Really special place...

    I did a one week retreat with the 5th Dimension the whole week was truly amazing and so uplifting. The retreat is a lovely property located on the amazon river the accommodations were quite nice comfortable and clean and the Maloca where the ceremonies are held is quite majestic. Charlie, William and Anna the facilitators were there for us every step of the way we felt supported, informed and welcomed the whole time. The Shamana Sara will be in my heart forever she sang such incredible wonderful songs to us I’m very grateful to her. Charlie and William have created the perfect healing space. Since the retreat I feel I’m leaps and bounds from where I was – I feel so much more at peace with myself and just more connected it’d hard to explain but I’m a happier person these days. I would highly recommend the 5th dimension to anyone who is looking for a safe authentic and professional retreat.
