About This Center

Luz Eterna Psilocybin Retreats are shamanic ceremonial retreats by Women for Women. With Luz Eterna or "Eternal LIght" we help to illuminate a new path to healing and growth. Our thoughtfully curated experiences offer sacred mushroom ceremonies under the stars, and around a sacred fire designed to help heal past traumas, inspire personal growth, spark creativity and cultivate gratitude and connection. And while ceremony is a the heart of our work, this is truly only the tip of the iceberg. Each retreat takes place in unique locations and provides participants with many tools for healing. We offer temazcal, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, sound healing, ecstatic dance, integration circles, and workshops such as art therapy and altar building allow guests to expand their wellness regimen. We also offer opportunities to connect with nature and explore the traditions of local culture through excursions to sacred natural spaces, ruins and immersive cultural experiences to paricipate in the celebrations of Dia de Muertos. . Our tribe of ceremony leaders gather from all over the world to share their unique gifts with our guests and to create global communities for positive change. We pride ourselves on creating open, inclusive,supportive, fun and diverse retreats for women looking to illuminate their journey of growth and healing. Our motto is "Heal Yourself, Heal the Planet," we support local, women run businesses such as coffee and cacao collectives and donate part of the proceeds to local NGO's working to create opportunities for women. Luz Eterna are not just retreats but a philosophy of sustainability, spiritual exploration and empowerment. Come get inspired with us!

In the flush of love's light, we dare be brave. And suddenly we see that love costs all we are and will ever be. Yet, it is only love that sets us free. Maya Angelou
