About This Event

This retreat is held in the beautiful Mexican village of San Antonio at Lake Chapala. Which is one hour from the city of Guadalajara Mexico.

This is an opportunity for renewal and to go deep into your psyche to experience the workings of your mind and heart. There will be tools offered that assist you in learning ways to deal with life’s challenges more effectively in order to find inner peace. We will work with the Medicine Wheel of Insight, various meditation techniques, Chi Gong,

non-dual teachings and the Sacred Medicine of the psilocybin mushroom as an enhancer for this deep transformative work.

Plant medicine has been use by our ancestor’s further back than recorded history. It has been an intricate part of human existence to heal and expand our human consciousness. Now it is resurfacing and recognized as the powerful and sacred medicine that it is. The gentle mushroom has been proven to help heal PTSD, depression and other psyche disorders, and is currently being used by psychiatrists in the US. We use small doses to enhance the meditative process in our retreats to help expand our awareness.

The Medicine Wheel of Insight is a tool that teaches us to see exactly what our minds are doing that we may get more clarity and learn how to be fully present for our lives. It helps you gain greater understanding by delving into the deeper regions of your mind and heart using inquire, and the assistance of the Sacred Medicine. These insights can be transformational when guided by an experienced Medicine man like Joseph Rio de Paz.

This retreat will also offer non-dual teachings such as the teachings taught by Eckhart Tolle, Buddhist teachings and several other teachers. We will not only have meditation throughout the day, but we also will practice the ancient art of Chi Gong which is a movement meditation exercise that cultivates good health, vitality and presence.

Our lives are over much too soon. Tell me, What do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life.
