Offering to the Heart (AYAHUASCA MEDICINE RETREAT)

About This Event

German Virguez (Venezuela) and Lupita Castro (Mexico) walk a sacred path devoted to healing and to the expansion of consciousness with master plants, and to opening this path to others. They are committed; and their way of life reflects this commitment and the enhanced awareness it has brought them. They are what they preach, they ‘walk the talk’; honorable guides in an honorable calling.

The couple began their journey back in 2007, travelling to Colombia, Peru, Venezuela and Mexico to study with respected teachers, embodiments of different medicine lineages and traditions.

Today, German and Lupita are themselves masters with an approach to plant medicine that is unique and wholly their own, the result of experience, finely-tuned intuition and the wisdom garnered from the plant.

They are also, not incidentally, renowned musicians and composers. In a ceremonial context, they blend the melodies and traditions of East and West, of Amazon and Andes into a seamless whole of high, clear energy where music is a powerful vehicle within the experience.

German and Lupita perform and record as Ayahuapu: their original music is prized by fellow musicians and ayahuasqueros and played at ceremonies throughout the world.

AYAHUASCA RETREATS

Retreats afford a unique opportunity to learn at the hand of loving, Grandmother Ayahuasca.

Our intention is to create and sustain the space for deep healing work aided by the powerful tool for personal transformation that is Ayahuasca. From a place of expanded consciousness, free of negative emotion, the plant allows us to see the personal perceptions that have created our inner and outer realities; perceptions that are flawed and limited and keep us from creating lives of health, abundance and joyful connection. Our behavior, and our relationship to ourselves, to others and to our environment is based on our perceptions. Identifying flawed perceptions gives us the opportunity to change them and so change our lives.

The retreat combines Ayahuasca ceremonies with group integration sessions, meditation, Tibetan Yoga, periods of silence, ritual offerings, nature walks, visits to sacred sites and a diet supportive of the work. This combination of action and contemplation, nourishment and medicine works the magic.

"It is the beginning of a trip that even in the greatest stories I heard"
