Join us for an awakening of the heart and soul. This eight day/seven night retreat is for women seeking a profound spiritual, mental and physical cleansing and healing, or anyone who would like to deepen their spiritual practice.
If you are feeling the call within your heart to connect deeper with what it means to walk the path of womanhood, this is a beautiful opportunity to gain clarity and break through barriers that may have been keeping you from realizing your highest potential. As women, we learn, grow, and heal even more deeply when we tap into the resources and support of a tribe, remembering the traditional ways that women have gathered since the beginning of time. Here we will gather in sisterhood and journey under the guidance of the medicine, inviting deep healing, profound understandings, and shifts in consciousness that can help us to live our lives more fulfilled.
As you join us, you are welcomed into this family of this circle, one that will support you on your journey infinitely. We will spend eight days honoring the strength that comes when we walk our path, learning shamanic traditions, and healing in yagé ceremonies as we build a bridge of love to connect with all women. All is welcome here, and we build a safe space for you to heal with acceptance, equality, understanding, and compassion.
During these ceremonies, songs and music are forms of prayer that bring healing energies into the ceremonial space. The sound vibration connects the shaman and plant medicine to the people, and in the ayahuasca tradition it is said that the shaman and musiqueros sing the sickness away.
We are looking forward to spend time together as sisters, as self-realizing women, as weavers of life, as the healers we naturally are because we are women. It is time to leave envy, self-doubts and self-sabotage behind in old forgotten times and start over to heal our wombs, to heal the relations with our mothers as with mother earth herself.
The name Adriana received by the Muisca tribe is ‘Jairsagua’ which means ‘black jaguar woman of the magic and the mystery of the hidden ancestral medicine’. Part of this journey is to access a lost culture which opens the doors to our female intuition and to a deep connection with mother earth.
Adriana will teach us how to weave the sacred mochila bags like girls of many tribes do from a young age on. The magic of the traditional crochet weaving reveals itself as we understand that we weave our intentions, our healing and our families’ healing into manifestation and use the Mochila (which symbolizes the uterus) as our tool. Not seldom women started weaving their life in visions in dreams and ceremonies. Like this we weave a new design for our life and carry our intentions on us as living prayers.
Adriana will share many stories and experiences about the use of the menstruation as sacred medicine to heal, avoid diseases and call love and abundance into our life through the use of herbs and prayers during this powerful times.
This are just two topics of an ocean of wisdom and love this medicine woman is open to share with us, blessed we are to have her in our life!
We will enjoy 2 ceremonies with Taita Juanito and one Yopo ceremony with Abuela Adriana, do Yoga and Meditation, receive Reiki and Aromatherapy, create an earth altar, meet in sharing circles where all questions and concerns can be addressed, learn about different plant medicines and valuable tools to apply the magic afterwards in our daily lifes.
Our personal experiences with Taita Juanito, Adriana and her partner Don Florentino, a tobacco Shaman, have not only transformed our lives and opened our hearts, but totally expanded our belief of what is possible in life. We believe in these healers, we believe in this medicine, we believe in this path, we believe in you, and we believe that anything is possible. We want to make this sacred gift of Ayahuasca (yagé) available to all that desire healing, rebirth, clarity, change and connection with all life.
Our deepest desire for this retreat is that everyone that gathers learn how to explore their strength, connect with other sisters in unconditional love and compassionate support for one another, and tap into a larger vision for our world and what is possible. Huge shifts are taking place on this planet. The change we all have been dreaming of is here. Its happening right now. We are the chosen ones and its time to own our power for great manifestation, teach our friends, family and future generations new ways of creating a life of love, peace and freedom. If this resonates with you, please come to this amazing gift of sisterhood, expansion, healing, knowledge, laughter and love! If you have been called to change, come. If you have friends, bring them. You are welcome, you are safe and you are unconditionally loved here. Aho!

"Weaving is a path of light. Weaving is how I study; a path of discovery, slowly unveiling the depths of my being and existence in this world. Weaving is how I heal; illuminating the dark corners of my mind, bringing clarity, beauty and trust to the unknown. Weaving is the way I pray; each bead, stone and feather a seed of hope, of trust, of love, of joy, of abundance and of beauty. Weaving is how I express the manifestation of visions, dreams, desires. Weaving is how I do my work in the world. As one we weave this beautiful life." Yara
