About This Event
During this 7 day immersion we will explore the sacred medicine accompanied by art therapy in an intimate space surrounded by the Caribbean jungle. There will be cleansing, ayahuasca ceremony, daily art therapy sessions, optional morning yoga, one on one therapy sessions, body work to ground and plenty of time to integrate and rest.
We believe in nature's ability to heal and bring us to our essence, this retreat is just for that.
All meals are cooked by a dedicated medicinal food chef who creates slow food using local, organic, and all vegan ingredients. This chef pours his heart and soul into his creations.
The medicine that you will receive is grown, harvested, and cooked by a local medicine man on his farm a few kilometers from our retreat space. He himself will serve us the medicine and hold the sacred ceremony. He has years of experience and you will have time with him to share your experience and ask questions.
We, Luna and Wies, will be holding the sacred space throughout the retreat and will support you through your personal process.
Luna is an Art Therapist and will be holding group and individual art psychotherapy sessions.
Wies is Yoga Instructor and has 7 years of experience actively supporting and working in ancestral healing ceremonies focusing mainly on the female lineage. Main ceremonies for reference are Moon Dance, Sundance and Sweat lodge(temazcal). She will offer yoga, energetic cleanses, song ceremony and general support.

Venue HighlightsCasa Antorcha (Spanish for Torch House) is a space held by the lush Caribbean jungle. The house is surrounded by toucans, cacao trees, monkeys, flowers, bananas and butterflies. A peaceful place where the sounds of the forest create a symphony for the senses.
AccommodationsCasa Antorcha has intimate shared and private rooms for you to rest during your retreat. All four rooms are entirely made of local wood and have windows with views of the surrounding jungle providing a rustic while elegant natural environment for your intimacy. In each room you will find small original artworks that we've created and collected, giving the rooms touches of color and love. There are two shared bathrooms with clean rainwater showers inside the house and one delicious outside shower to cleanse in as well.
