About This Event

Every month around full moon, people from all over the world are gathering to spedn days of silence, meditation and yoga on a magical island in the middle of lake titicaca in Peru. 

The main intention of the retreat is to open the heart and to bring balance to our own inner masculine and feminine aspect. For this we are using the high energy of the ancient temples of the island which are dedicated to Pachamam (the feminine principle) and Pachatata (the masculine principle).

We use different techniques of Yoga, Meditation and Therapy that support the openign of the heart nd the healing of old wounds as well. 

The retreat is desinged both for beginners and experienced practitioners and the high energy of the place makes it ieasy even for beginners to have deep meditations very quickly. 

It is a 5 day event with 3 days of silence. It includes transportation from Cusco or Juliaca to the island and back.

The island Amantani is one of the most beautiful and magical places I have ever been. The energy is so high yet calm at the same time and the place itself has a transformational power. So grateful for the experience! Thank you!

      Excellent retreat!

    The retreat was a perfect combination of meditation, movement, yoga, and nature. The hikes and mediation to Pachatata and Pachamama were incredible. Julia is an excellent facilitator and very tuned in to the needs of individuals and the group. All of the arrangements and transportation were handled very well. The home we stayed in was comfortable, meals were tasty, the family was very kind and helpful. Thank you so much for a great experience!

  •   For three days on Amantani, time had slowed down for me - by Nick Werber (yogi times)

    The Hridaya teaching focuses on breathing into the spiritual heart, which is where our true self resides, beyond names and conditions. I found that connecting to that place allowed me to feel a sense of wellbeing and joy, which released my creativity. My heart was like a clenched hand that had begun to loosen. ... The last night we sat our last meditation and then shared our experiences. The change in each of us from that first day was noticeable. Everyone was more relaxed, open, and happy. It seemed the retreat was a great chance for us all to stop and examine what is important to us. Most of us planned on making some changes in our lives.

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
