PLANT MEDICINE CEREMONIES

Taita Juanito was raised in the Inga Tradition, he is an ethnobotanist with his own brand of herbal compounds which he distributes throughout Colombia. For the past 15 years he has been a student of the Grandfather Taita Laureano. At 109 years-old, Taita Laureano is the eldest Taita of Colombia, as well as the eldest of the indigenous Siona people. Taita Juanito joins the traditions of his Inga bloodline with the Siona tradition he received from Taita Laureano. The Sionas are traditionally very strong and powerful healers that have been utilizing the amazing blessings of plant medicine for centuries.

Taita Juanito is a well-know and respected teacher-shaman, he has followers throughout the world, and people flock to him due to his compassionate hart and great wisdom. He is always willing to share his guidance with those that are interested in following hte path of sacred medicines.

"I traveled to Rythmia by myself in October to help me heal trauma surrounding the loss of a loved one in 2016. It was a profound experience that created life long bonds with beautiful souls. I was able to let go and move into acceptance and view death through a different lens."

~ Jane O



Accommodation:


We provide luxurious and spacious accommodations in a serene, quiet setting. Your room will invite you to relax and reflect, enjoy the stunning views of the forest and the enchanting songs of native birds. All rooms are furnished with original art, therapeutic beds and luxury resort decor.

Our rooms are all situated within casitas (small houses) with private bathrooms and plenty of air-conditioned space. Guests can book either single, double or triple bedrooms. Most of your time at Rythmia won’t be spent in your casita but it’ll be a perfect place to take a break, read or meditate, take a shower in some of the cleanest water in the world, or take a nap. Casita rooms are individualized in order to provide privacy, quiet and rest which will be so important as you’re relearning how to love and treat yourself right during your stay at Rythmia.

Why Retreat?

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

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health.
