Brazilian Ancestral Medicine Retreat

About us

Plant Medicine

Ayahuasca is our primary healing therapy. Also called the teacher plant or vine of the soul, it encompasses the wisdom of the plant kingdom, and has been used by ancient civilizations of the Brazilian , Peruvian and Colombian Amazon since prehistoric times. As an entheogen Ayahuasca promotes expansion of consciousness favoring a journey of self-discovery, cleansing and purification, internal revelations, spiritual guidance and regaining of personal power and divine purpose.

What is included in the experiences of expanded states of consciousness:

    -Contact with the higher self, revision of our identifications of self-images and differentiation of our EGO psychological structure 

    -Contact with our inner "hurt child," traumatic experiences that block and paralyze our life force and positive functioning. 

    -Contact with our personal "shadows" and complexes, projections, review choices and behaviors;

    -Experience of past and future lives ;

    -Access to personal or collective unconscious archetypes and symbols ;


Brazilian Ancestral Medicine Retreat

Our retreats are anchored in practical and theoretical learning of the four universal archetypes - warrior, healer, visionary and teacher as seen in indigenous, African and Aboriginal traditions. These four archetypes parallel the  the fourfold structure of the earth- and thus promote integration of the Self with the 4 seasons, 4 phases of the moon, 4 elements, and 4 cardinal directions.  

The retreat includes transpersonal integrative care and spiritual direction to organize and expand the experience with ayahuasca and other techniques of expansion of consciousness , purification and harmonization, such as:

    -Drum journeys and sweat lodge (shamanic sauna)

    -Yoga sessions and guided meditation;

    -Ayurvedic and relaxing massage; 

    -Music- therapy and aromatherapy;

    -Healing circles with other shamanic medicines such as sananga, hapé and sacred tobacco;

    -Experiences with art, dance, singing, story-telling and bonfire circles for group integration;

    -Experiences with power animals and redemption of Afro-Brazilian and indigenous spiritual traditions;

    -Bioenergetic exercises to discharge energy blockages caused by trauma;

    -Purification with clay- therapy, herbal baths, smudging with sage, palo santo, etc.

    -Theoretical and practical training on the four universal archetypes: Warrior, Healer, Teacher, and Visionary

Free Retreat Givewaway

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
