About This Event
Welcome to our kichwa family! Our work is a life mission and we have an experience of 10 years with hosting such events. We strive to be at service on your spiritual journey and help you to achieve more balance and improve your mental, physical and energetic health. Our events are not "tourist" experiences. Our private center is build specifically to be in harmony with the plant medicine work. The jungle that surrounds the lodge is the home of the Ayahuasca plant that that we grow reciprocially. While you stay at the center, you will not be disturbed by noise of civilization, community or workers, only thousands of hectars of beautiful nature. Groups are limited to 12 participants allowing the work to be very personal. In our ceremonies, women are respected and the environment is free of sexual advances. No use alcohol is permitted at the lodge. The ceremonial leader deeply cares for the wellbeing of all participants, follows ancestral traditions and is and expert in leading Ayahuasca rituals. The leader drinks ayahuasca together with participants and sings "icaros" during the night. The medicine is properly brewed, using only two plants, the Ayahuasca vine and an admixture leaves, which results in strong healing experience. Translations to/from English, Spanish and Czech are available. With us, you are on the safe side from the moment you board the private bus until the moment you arrive back at your airport hotel.
