Heart Journey to the centre ~ reignite the fire and your sacred vision

About us

Envision a shamanic pilgrimage to the middle of the world; a Hero’s Quest if you must; into the centre of your Heart.

In the lapse of 5 nights and 4 days, let us journey around the medicine wheel in full circle; together with other creators of their own path such as yourself, to experience the teachings of the 4 sacred elements, and supporting each other’s processes of birth, life, death and rebirth; as well as receiving the guidance of Indigenous wisdom keepers and powerful master plants. All these, surrounded by beautiful landscapes in the heights of the Andes, at Peguche, an indigenous village 2,5 km outside of Otavalo.

This time-space co-creation is a one of a kind, It’s special because of you and every being that will be part of it. Think about it. You are a powerful creator of your own destiny and by choosing to be part of this experience you will attract exactly what you need at this time of your path of evolution to growth and become a better version of you. This Experience is dreamed as a powerful container for heart opening, life changing, empowering and inspiring transformation.

Who is this journey for?

  • If you are going through a major life transition and you need the time and space to see clear and get inspired about what's next on your path.
  • If you are an Artist, Visionary, Musician, Filmmaker, Healer, Heart-Space Holder, Neo-Shaman, Community builder, Storyteller and a Conscious Entrepreneur.
  • If you are a woman, a man, single or in a relationship. If you are a parent and you want to create a more meaningful lifestyle to model for your children and if you are consciously attracting and manifesting your tribe.
  • This is an adventure for spiritual warriors that are holding space for the new ways and the new Earth.

This opportunity is open to all but not everybody is ready for it. So we want to make sure you really understand what is the main intention for this and every journey so you can get the most out of it as well as get behind the prayer that goes with it.

Our prayer for this Heart Quest:

Oh Great Spirit ~ Pachamama ~ Higher-Self,

Let us come together in ONE HEART so we may manifest and nurture a strong foundation for an international community of seed carriers and WorldBridgers to consciously inspire and support each other to co-create together

the Galactic Indigenous Culture for this new time.

You will journey with :

Shairy Quimbo (Peguche, Ecuador)

Andean shaman, descendant from the Inca lineage “Condor Mallku”

“The sound of the sacred seashell brings us back to the origin of the ages and prophecies, taking on the mission of planting the seeds of transformation to a new humanity.”

Shairy is a Kichwa man from the Andean mountains of Otavalo where he received inspiration and wisdom from his ancestors. After his pilgrimages to the sacred mountains: For the master Shairy Quimbo, visiting the sacred mountains of Ausangate and Huascaran in Peru; Illimani in Bolivia; and Cotopaxi, Chimborazo, Yanaurcu, Imbabura, Cusin and Cotacachi in Ecuador, taught him valuable lessons about the family life of condors.

By observing condor parents teaching their young to fly, Shairy witnessed how very important the role of elders, parents and the whole community play in the life and growth of youth.

Shairy’s visions of ecstasy come from the musical meditation Takysamy opening doors to shamanic knowledge. In this way, he recovered and remembered his ancestral lineage of the “Kuntur Mallku” path. Now he shares all this wisdom in the form of ceremonies, healing concerts, personal consultations, and workshops, with everybody who resonate with his frequencies.

He will be sharing with us:

Takysamy an ancient technique of healing with music and sounds; helping and assisting our process of finding harmony and well being.

Flight of the Condor Workshop based on his book 7 Condor Feathers 7 Teachings of the Wisdom Path


Alexsandra (Quebec, Canada)

In service of the way of the Heart

For the past 15 years Alexsandra has journeyed and received teachings from Indigenous elders of different parts of North and South America, India, and also from different master plants. Deeply involved in the active service of her medicinal community and indigenous elders of Turtle Island, she takes heart in sharing medicine with her brothers and sisters, holding space to a female pathway of ceremonial beauty, for the recognition of our true nature; to discover again and again the treasures of unconditional love. Ph.D. in anthropology, working with indigenous people, she is involved in community healing and reconciliation in the province of Quebec.

During the journey, she will be sharing with us her medicine, teachings, music and support, offering a four altar ceremony from the Earth to the Heart.

Soniko Waira (BC bear country, Canada)

Musician, artist, visionary.

‘’Visions are meant to be manifested, otherwise they remain just as dreams.’’

From Quito (Ecuador), Soniko Waira, leaves in Canada since 14 years. Teacher, student, storyteller and seed carrier, he’s been walking the conscious medicine path for the past 13 years; learning from the wisdom and teachings of indigenous elders from Turtle Island. He is a Dreamer of the old/new ways of living in harmony with all my relations on Pachamama (Mother Existence). His purpose in life is to serve our planet, sharing seeds of HEART and CONSCIOUSNESS, connecting the ancient indigenous wisdom with the modern worldviews...

Two years ago, he received the vision for this shamanic pilgrimage on the top of the mountains in Ecuador during a medicine journey. It’s a vision from the Heart and its purpose is to gather a group of conscious beings that are walking a path of service, to the human family and to Pachamama to co-create a magical time-space for quantum jumps, transformational experiences, powerful alliances and heart connections; a spiritual pilgrimage to centre of the Heart.

During this journey, he will be sharing his medicine, teachings & music and leading workshop called the Heart Map Experience (a tool he created that is a combination of ancestral indigenous wisdom and modern mind techniques), a cacao ceremony and some coaching support.

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

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.
