Take some time and space for yourself in the heart of Colombia and walk away refreshed, reengaged and reconnected to yourself.
Colombia, once one of the most dangerous countries in the world, has transformed itself into one of the most innovative. There is no better place for you to do the same. The people, culture and countryside rival any in the world. From the warmth and generosity of the locals to the waterfalls and rivers in the mountains nearby, this South American gem has it all.
Our location is one of the best in the world for the transformation that will come from our short week together. Guatapé, the lakeside home of our retreat, is known as the "Most Colorful Town in Colombia." It's filled with colorful houses, cobblestone streets and friendly locals and surrounded by the nature you need to reconnect with yourself. Combine this with the power of indigenous medicine and the tours we have planned and this trip has the potential to change the course of your life in a very real and lasting way.
Imagine coming out of this retreat with the courage, clarity, and confidence you need to transform your life.
That is exactly what awaits on the other side of our 8 days and nights together.
Read on below to learn more about what this retreat includes.
All ceremonies, tours and experiences are optional but highly recommended.
We've got the utmost love and respect for indigenous traditions, and see our role as cultural bridge, connecting you with the power of their inspiring ways of life. In this mutually beneficial relationship, we pay for their services at the rate they set and donate 10% of retreat proceeds back to the indigenous to support with health, education and infrastructure.
Our Ayahuasca/Yage ceremonies are led by Taita Giovani, a Master Shaman from the Awa Indigenous Community of Putumayo, Colombia. He has been serving the medicine for 25 years and has impeccable reputation in the medicine community. Starting in his ancestral home in Putumayo, he currently welcomes people for ceremony in his maloca (designated ritual space) in Santa Elena, Medellin and travels back to the jungles of Putumayo twice a year to brew the ayahuasca he serves himself. He works with experienced local facilitators who will guide and support you through your communion with the medicine.
We emphasize the importance of integration from these consciousness expanding experiences and support with in-person intention setting and integration circles, post-retreat calls and on going support following the retreat.

Check out the pictures of our accommodations. We'll have a private chef, Vanessa, who cooks amazing Colombian food so you can enjoy your meal with these lakeside views. In your spare time relax in the jacuzzi, swing in the hammocks, or find some space for yourself to reflect on the new life you are stepping into.
"I went on this trip not knowing what to expect. I just knew that I felt lost. I was confused about my life and didn't know what to focus on or where I'd end up. Now reflecting on the trip it's hard to describe what I experienced while in Colombia. Something deep inside of me shifted. The warmth of the people and the raw beauty of Colombia was enough to bring me back home to myself but the experiences I had just can't be summed up in words. I feel like I know who I am and why I am here. It's like I was searching always for something outside of myself but this trip showed me how to look within. I feel transformed. I feel connected and I feel so grateful for the team of people who put this trip together. I know it has changed the course of my life. If you are feeling lost, stuck or alone, I encourage you to answer this call to adventure. Go on this trip. You will be fully supported and I know it will change the course of your life in the most powerful and amazing way. Few things do I recommend with such conviction but if you are reading this I know this trip is what you have been searching for."
