About This Event

This intimate experience is calling forth a small group of committed Light Warriors willing to confront their shadows and embrace their inner child. Set in the beauty and comfort of the Sacred Valley of Peru this personal development retreat is designed to clear past emotional wounds and open up to guidance from the Higher Self.

The journey begins with a Temezcal ceremony and a day-hike to local ancient ruins. These activities are intended to connect participants with energies of Pachamama and the powerful local mountains of the valley. The Cusco region in the Andes, referred to as the ombligo or belly-button of the earth, is a renowned energy center ideal for healing work.

Also included in the retreat is one massage and one acupuncture session. Along with daily yoga these treatments are offered to assist in the opening of emotional blockages and traumas stuck in the physical body. Once brought to the surface these “Shadows” are ready to be integrated through facilitated inner-child sessions.

Shadow of the inner child facilitation is a cognitive-emotional group process where participants are guided to address issues that are restricting their joy & spiritual growth. By looking at the blockage from a third-person perspective participants can more objectively see the pattern and choose what needs to happen in order to heal the dynamic. Intense emotional release is common.

The final component of the retreat is an all-day San Pedro ceremony conducted at a local mountain lake. The native cactus medicine will assist the awakening of a deeper wisdom from within. It is on the final day of this adventure where a new vision and purpose for life will be initiated!

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth
