About This Event
Ayahuasca Retreat in Amazon jungle of provide is an excellent way to experience Ayahuasca in its original habitat. The setting of the retreat is ideal for both, first-time acquaintance with Ayahuasca tradition or for deepening the existing experience with Teacher plants and the spiritual practice.Included: Ayahuasca ceremonies, group activities, ground transport, meals, accommodation. During the retreat we hold three (3) Ayahuasca ritual ceremonies (the 1st, 3rd and the 5th night) in a traditional but comfortable ritual setting, inside a building called maloca (temple), screened from the insects. Ayahuasca ceremonies are conduced in traditional way, during the night.
During the week the group goes on a few excursions and near-by walks. There’s also plenty of free time periods that can be used for resting, walking and reflection. Corto Maltes offers guided walks in the forrest surrounding the lodge. On the hike we will see a variety of trees and medicinal plants. We will learn how they are used in local Amazon traditions. During the retreat we visit the Tambopata natural reserve at the lake Sandoval, excursion to Ese Eja indigenous community and various walking excursions in the rain forest near the lodge (depending from the season).
The ceremonies with Ayahuasca provide a deep cleanse on all layers of our being, facilitating a physical purge, cleansing of the mental and energetic aspects of our being. The introspective journeys with the teacher plants guide through emotional processes provoking a deeper inner awakening. The meals during the retreat are prepared with care and served on site. Participating in the morning physical exercises and breathing practices are a wonderful addition to the whole cleansing process. Ayahuasca ceremonies facilitate a deeper connection with the senses, thoughts, and spirit through a process of cleansing, insights and guidance in a ritual setting. The main focus of our work with Ayahuasca is to learn to connect the experiences from the ceremonies and meditation with one’s life situation. It’s easy to absorb what the plants say to us, but only practical application of those experiences make a real change in our lives. Thus everyone is encouraged to share and practice in the group and/or individually to get the most out of the retreat.

After several years of working with many masters, Edmunds is not only a true professional, but also a gifted musician which will take your soul to realms you can't start imagining. Edmunds is one of these perfectionists that takes care of each and every fine detail of the ceremony. The result is a true heart lifting experience which will open a hatch to the divine realms within.

I have been few times in Ayahuasca retreats with Edmunds and Alessandra. For whoever wants a very deep process with amazing Music, Amazing company and real experienced Conductors it is highly recommended. Edmunds and Alessandra let you go your personal journey with much space, but with presence and help when you need. Their gentle and experienced presence gives the participant a secure, trusted and pleasant environment which is so crucial for such deep spiritual processes.

We participated in a 5 day, 3 ceremony retreat with Edmunds and Alessandra (and their friends). It was amazing, inspiring, awe-inspiring, filling. They create an engulfing space, a safe haven in which each one of the people can travel their own path and at the same time be one with the energy of the group. A space which allows and facilitates the many journeys which took place. They sense the people and gently guide the circle through troubles and epiphanies, with the help of their extraordinary musical vibes. We are eagerly looking forward to our next meeting. Love & Meta to all beings :-)

I have shared about 6 sessions with Edmond, over few years; over few other shaman's I have experienced during this period. In my limited opinion, the sessions led by Edmond has proved to be the most productive, for the occasion period, as well as on the days to follow the session. Edmond has an exceptional ability to hold the circle-space, direct the energy and let the spirit do its job on the participants. I have deeply enjoyed his direction, his music and his guidance through the process. He has an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the medicine and it "might be affect" on the participants. The bottom line, his sessions allow me to further advance on my voyage; guess that's what we are here for...

The 2 weeks of retreats I particpated in were beyond what I could have ever imagined. I felt safe, comfortable, loved, and accepted. The place, the people, the food, and the ceremonies were beautiful and the space was held with such openness and love. To my extended family, thank you!

I had the privilege to attend Edmonds’ retreat and had a blessed time. The depth, tha magical atmosphere and the beautiful music opened the channels of acceptance and love. I carry the memory with me long after it ended. This is definitely a life changing experience that I deeply recommend. Thank you Edmunds. 🙏🏻

Edmunds is an extremely talented musician, I have attended a number of events where he played music composed by others and his own compositions. His performances were all equally magnificent. His working knowledge of medicine is extensive and deep, he has obviously spent much time learning the wisdom of the plants he uses in his ceremonies. I attended a ceremony in his own home in Piseq a few months ago and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. In conjunction with his colleague Eduardo, they facilitated the group and the ceremony in a wonderfully 'authentic' and real way. Edmunds is European and being from Europe myself (Ireland), I appreciated the bridge that Edmunds was able to provide between the 'cultural void' that can be difficult for people new to medicine and ceremony. I would highly recommend Edmunds and hope very much that you have the opportunity to experience his wise guidance and masterful ceremony leadership.
