Beáta & Frédéric combine 30 years of experience in the fields of transformation, shamanism, healing and wellness.Years of study, self-reflection and commitment to growth and pushing beyond personal limitations have taught both Frédéric  and Beáta that trust, courage, and the commitment to act on your highest vision - creates a life of fulfilment, joy, depth and meaning.

Plant Medicine work is a remarkable tool to accelerate your spiritual path and personal growth. However, without a roadmap or experienced guidance, the journey of working with these healing plants can be frustrating or even overwhelming for some. 

This retreat will support you in transforming your dreams into reality and shifting the old stories that keep you from living a truly inspired life.

When engaging with our growth & transformation and what limits both, it is paramount to create a safe container for exploration. We offer a raft of tools & processes leading to the identification of limiting stories – the ones leading to repeated behavioral patterns in our relationships, abundance, creativity and the capacity to give and receive love. 

We will also offer deep preparation in how you can best work with the consciousness of the Huachuma cactus in ceremony. Guiding you in the best way possible in how to communicate with this master plant teacher, as well as the most effective way to engage with its transcendent healing powers to support real and long-lasting change in your life. 

Every process, exercise and journey offered in our retreats is designed to support a personal self-discovery and deep connection with the totality of life. 

Each component is crafted to help you clarify your purpose, heal, transform and empower all aspects of your life, during and beyond the retreat.
When working with the Spirit Plant Huachuma, we will show you how to engage with an open heart, show love to any darkness that comes your way, show respect, love, warmth and reciprocity to the world, tangible and intangible, people and all who surround you. We will support you to learn the lessons offered and take them into the world.

In all of our retreat offerings and beyond, you will never be on your own – we share practical tools and transformative processes to accompany you at every stage of your journey and to support your own integration of this unique experience.
We are dedicated to your personal growth and will challenge you to stretch beyond your comfort zone and inspire you to stay committed to your goals. Whatever you need, we’re here to support you – with understanding, honesty and respect. 

We witness over and again, the long-lasting impact of our retreats on individuals and their capacity to change themselves and the world around them.

Our community is filled with extraordinary humans. Simply stated, there’s no other program that invites such high standards of kindness, authenticity and integrity. The intention for all our retreats is to reveal the single common thread that bonds us all – the desire for deep connection.

A quick message from us:

“Dear All, This retreat comes with exquisite challenges. Working with plant medicines and personal transformation requires the courage for each of us to dive deep and go the extra mile. That is why this retreat should only be considered by individuals who are 100% committed. We can’t make predictions on what it will look like for each individual. However, we do know from experience that this adventure is a sure way to step into your full magnificence. We can’t wait to meet you! With Love, Frédéric & Beáta”

SUE: “I experienced a deeper connection with myself, nature and the world around me.” CLARK: “The meaning of true friendship, as well as the compassion and support each person gave to each other.” JENNY: “The undeniable power and wisdom that I carry within – but had forgotten along the way.” NICK: “I felt I was able to finally surrender and let go of all the old stories that were holding me back in life.”

Between activities one can relax or study in a variety of calm and peaceful spaces that were placed for the purpose of joy and contemplation, all with amazing views to the surroundings. The rooms are cozy with simple decoration, all that is needed to let go and surrender to the space of being taken care of, as you walk out the door, may be the sunlight or the magical sky stars salute.
