About us

Awakening into Harmony joins with Body of Prana
in this exclusive 7 day retreat for women in the Sacred Valley of Peru.

Awaken - Embody - Empower - Express - Breathe

Prana is the life force and the center of all things.  Sound is the initial creation from this space.  Combined, embrace yourself in the arms of sisterhood.  As we awaken our voices and reclaim our power as women.

The throat chakra is the pressure valve that expresses the whole system.  By allowing and freeing this sound resonance of your entire being one discovers harmony. Therefore, unlocking the great mysteries within, creating space for our higher selves to anchor into our physical body. This is the link to self-mastery and embodiment of our divine selves in physical form.  
 
Energy = Vibration = Frequency = Sound
 
Our entire system, from spirit, mind and body is a compilation of sound.

What has been blocking you from discovering freeing your authentic expression?
The voice.


Through freeing the voice and embodying your soul frequency discover your true strength as a woman.  With the grounded and clear confidence to speak your truth, set your healthy boundaries, joyfully express your femininity, sing your hearts song, and ultimately fall in love with you are ~ a perfect and whole being.

Clear - Open - Align

It's time to release old traumas, fears, self-judgement, resentment, rejection and grief.
To clear past relationships so the garden of the feminine can sprout from your womb and blossom in your heart.

Allow your voice to restore your body, mind and spirit into harmony.

No more getting all twisted up inside.
No more holding yourself back.
No more second guessing what you know.
No more giving into situations/people when your heart says no.
No more living a half-lived life.

Power is not taken, it is given away.
Given away to the countless fears bottled up inside.

There is  no ego in standing strong and clear in your being. It is your natural birth right as a human being.  And this applies to both women and men. It is through the balance of humility as the eternal student that one remains in their heart and rooted in their core.

Movement and the Subtle Energy Body

Energy moves. The body moves.
Through movement and voice awaken to a deeper sense of the subtle energy body and how it expresses itself.

Stagnancy  = Non-Movement = Blocked Energy

So many of us have become stuck in comfort and the everyday rhythms of life that we've forgotten to move our WHOLE body. The skin is the largest organ of your body, every cell and atom has energy and vibration.  Through dance, yoga, massage, energy work and self-care we re-awaken these parts of ourselves.  Moving the energy so that it can once again flow harmoniously.

We will begin everyday with Pranic Yoga Sessions and be dancing our chakras throughout the retreat.

It's time to love every inch of your body and to feel your skin as the sensual being that you are.

Loving Yourself

Self love is key.  So many people put it second but it should be first.  When I am in a space of self love ~ through all my expressions ~ that love vibration emanates from my being.  Therefore, everyone I encounter enters this field of love.
I do things from my heart and because I want to, not because I have to. To do something from that place of having to is a restricted energy, pinched and pulled back.  That energy does not vibrate love from my being, so when others I encounter enter my field they feel cluttered and mixed up energy.

Pranic Healing

Pranic Healing is a practical and efficient energy healing modality to help restore the body back into a place of alignment. It pulls out the stagnant energy in the form of cords, realigns the chakras, and opens up and frees the energy in the body to flow harmoniously.

Throughout the retreat, Safah will be accelerating the process for each individual by helping to free up the blocked energy that the sound is activating.  Creating more ease in the letting go.  And helping to maintain a harmoniously energetic group field.

Ayahuasca

In addition to the daytime retreat, we will also be offering optional Ayahuasca ceremonies  for those who wish to go deeper with this plant with two heart centered and clear facilitators, who will be holding a safe and grounded masculine presence for us women.

Ayahuasca Facilitators:
Jorge Ochovano Vasquez & Felix Durden


AYAHUASCA DETAILS
About Ayahuasca from Felix:


Ayahuasca or Uni in Shipibo, is what my teacher calls the greatest living psychotherapist. Uni has incredible potential as far as healing the body, mind and soul. In no ways is this a drug, it is a combination of two plants one the Ayahuasca vine and the other the leaves of a plant called Chakruna which contains the dimethyltryptamine. This combination of plants creates what we call Uni, or Ayahuasca an orally active DMT brew. Drinking this incredible brew we are able to heal our traumas, our subconscious, and our unhealthy mental behaviors. Through my training with the Shipibo I have been taught the powerful healing practices of flower baths and how they help to open and heal before and after ceremonies. Flower baths are one of the many cornerstones of the shipibo ayahuasca tradition. In fact they say there are literally baths for everything, healing the heart, clearing the mind, protection… The list goes on. The deep integrating healing Ayahuasca and the baths can provide may help excel the healing that can happen throughout the day, along with surface things from the subconscious into the conscious so that they may be healed in more profound and lasting ways.

Jorge Ochovano Vasquez ~ About

Jorge Ochavano Vasquez, or Soi, is from a Shipibo community called Nueva Betania. When Soi was 12 years old his grandfather introduced him to Ayahuasca. It was from there that Soi began training and learning from the plants in order to become an Unania or curandero. Soi now has 22 years experience working with the medicine and medicinal plants. Soi currently works at the Temple of the Way of Light in iquitos and has worked there for 6 years. His passion and wisdom with both plants and Ayahuasca continually grows as he gets older. He deeply cares for his patients and works with his heart to help anyone he can.

Felix Durden ~ About

I began working with the medicine in 2013, after personally suffering from the terrible effects of Lymes Disease. After experiencing the powerful and profound healing of the Ayahuasca I returned to Peru. I began studying closely with the Shipibo and worked in many Ayahuasca ceremonies at the Temple of the Way of Light in Iquitos. After two incredibly deep and difficult years of working and dieting at the Temple I decide to go even deeper with the medicine and began visiting my teacher and his family in their community in Nueva Betania. I continued to not only diet, but to be trained in different medicinal plants, and other methods of healing and working in ceremony. To this day I continue to work with my maestro on a regular basis in his home community in Pucallpa and now in Pisac. I have a deep passion for plant medicines and with sharing the wisdom of the Shipibo culture. Ayahuasca has changed my life in more ways than one can describe, and its potent healing and wisdom has helped me live an altogether integrated joyful life.

The most important thing is finding out whether or not Ayahuasca is for you. We will be providing private and confidential screenings of everyone to see whether or not this medicine is for you. This will include knowing your drug history, legal and recreational, your medical history both physical and mental. You can contact me privately so we may begin this deep and beautiful journey of healing together at freedom.arkana@gmail.com. Gracias.

Each ceremony will be intimate to allow for more personal attention from the facilitators.
Max amount of people per night is 5.

We have included one ceremony in the cost of the retreat. However, you are not obligated to sit. If you are positive that this is not for you, please contact me so that I can adjust the price for you. Otherwise, you can wait and if you do not end up sitting we will refund that cost to you at the end of the retreat.

MEET THE FACILITATORS

Christina Wells ~ About

Born an empath, I grew up a singer with a strong passion for sound, movement, the psyche and communication. People and life fascinated me and internally I was always creating connections and linking energetic pathways in my mind. At the age of 15 two profound things happened in my life. My mother, a nurse, became a Pranic Healer and married an Alternative Chiropractor who helped people release trapped emotions in the body through a modality called NET. Teaching me about energy, emotions, and body. I could feel in my body where emotions would go and see how they created a persons present reality. I am now a master at tracking emotions.

On the other side, my whole life my heart has led the way. I have made countless mistakes in my journey of self-discovery. And I faced unbearable fear time and time again because I knew it was the only way to unpeel the layers to my core's authentic expression. I was a rebel, determined to break through the chains of belief systems that repressed my very essence shining. I lived abroad for 6 years studying and learning various healing modalities. Certified in Reiki III, Theta Healing, EFT, and Ashtanga Yoga. I knew deep down I came here to share something. What I knew was that I was a singer, healer, and teacher. But I didn't know how all these things I had studied where to fall into place.

Then, in 2015 my Kundalini activated and my whole life changed. All the connections I was looking for became clear and embodied. My channel exploded open and I began receiving massive downloads from my oversoul as my oversoul descended into my physical body. I retreated into isolation for 2 months, doing private vocal training no one taught me ~ my body taught me. The following two years was a crash training ground, learning 20 years of knowledge in 2. I discovered my inner strength and pure freedom at expression. I became an embodied feminine. It is all this and more that birthed my Vocal Embodiment Courses, private sessions and this retreat.

Through the softness of pure receptivity and unconditional love, I welcome you into this space. To be held, seen, acknowledged, heard and empowered. You are my equal, are you ready to join me on this journey of self-discovery?

Safah Roberts ~ About

Ever since I was young I was drawn to those who were grounded yet could simultaneously and skillfully acknowledge and engage the multi-layered realm of spirit. This first led me to begin an apprenticeship in the esoteric sciences under various senior teachers in the Pranic Healing™ lineage. Here I learned the science of energetic medicine and started to unlock the potential inherent in prana. Later I travelled to India to study classical Hatha Yoga under the lineage of Sri Rajarshi Muni, disciple of kundalini yoga master Swami Kripalvananda. I spent over two years of my life learning from various teachers in India which eventually led me to begin offering yoga teacher trainings, which I have done since 2011. My path with plant medicines began in 2008, leading me to Peru and eventually towards ceremony facilitation and apprenticing with the Shipibo. My passion is to share the parallel threads that weave the worlds of shamanism, yoga and energy medicine together.

We will begin from the root chakra and move our way up towards the heart as the days progress. From there, we will transition to the crown chakra and work our way back down into the heart.
