Don Juan Teachings

Event Highlights

  • This retreat is open to those who are looking for balance and healing within their body, mind and spirit, as well as to contact with ancient cultures through native shamanic experience.
  • A Peyote Ceremony will be held at night that will allow us to see more clearly our essence and thus connect with our purest and most sacred being.
  • As part of the experience we will share the sacred Temazcal ritual to purify body and help promote all the work done during the retreat.
  • The optimum diet for working with peyote cactus is vegan which we modify slightly with the occasional fish or egg dish. Our meals are homemade, right down to and including the tortillas. We work with regional fruit, vegetables and herbs in novel and traditional combinations. You’ll enjoy vegan tacos, gazpachos, vegetable soups, seawood wraps and more. Some light fasting on ceremony days is required.
  • *If you have special dietary needs, advise us and we’ll work with you.

About This Event

Peyote is a sacred plant not commonly held in ceremonies outside Huichol Indians communities and desert. Don Juan, a native shaman from Wixarica community agreed to share this unique medicine in an unchanged, traditional and original way, together with its visions, insight, abundant knowledge and ancient world connected powers. It is You who decide how much you take of it all.
