September 25th – October 4th
The Amazon Expedition is a journey inward – a delicate, sweet calling to the beloved. It is the cultivation of a quiet, internal sacred space where consciousness blossoms.
Have you ever felt just right – supported and expanded – in a place that allowed you to open to insight and freedom? This radiance, or Truth, is intensified in places around the world that are particularly harmonized. You can feel it in the trees, in the water, in the soil and in the people. While radiance is everywhere, coming into relationship with such sacred land allows us to go deeper into our own awakening.
Journey of a Lifetime Come join our ten day Ecuadorian Amazon Expedition! Have your own direct experience of the ancient shamanic ways of knowing truth and beauty. Enjoy pristine rivers, jungle pathways, historical and archaeological sites, and artisanal crafts. Experience native life and ceremonies in true dialogue with Achuar shamans.
Exciting Itinerary We begin our journey in Quito, visiting sacred sites and popular markets. On to San Clemente for two days, where we will live with host families to experience village life, exploring and learning about Sumak Kawsay (Joyful Life) in the traditional way.
We will then fly Cessnas into the Rainforest, spending four nights and five days in the diverse magnificence of the jungle.
Enjoy fabulous local cuisine and guided nature walks to explore local plants and animals. Participants can opt for energy healings as well as deeply supported Ayahuasca ceremonies.
