What others say about the retreat
“Everybody is just filled with love and support. Community. Made life long friends. And healing that you can never get outside of this. And not only that you have support through your healing journey. The leaders are magic. The staff are earth angels.
I have lived 40 years in pain. And I now feel free.”
“What happened was indescribable. I always thought that i was going to die of a broken heart. But these healers have healed me. And healed things that i did not know even existed in me. The experience really has changed the whole trajectory of my life. The place was mystical and the people enchanting. I made forever friends and cannot wait to get back.”
“Over the past 39 years i have been through so many different heart breaks and losses. I came here because i wanted to truly do some deep healing. I am leaving with everything I needed. I asked for my heart to be healed and my heart is healed. I was able to actually let go. Forgive my body and see that my truth is beautiful and filled with a whole bunch of joy. I not only got everything I needed here but i am walking away with amazing friendships. I am an introvert and not a person who loves to mingle and connect and share my life story, but that just came naturally and everyone here was so opening for me.”

Why Do This Retreat ?
Feeling lost and unfulfilled is stressful and disruptive. It touches every aspect of your life including your career, relationships, and daily activities. The good news is the solutions lie within and you just need a way to uncover them. Often your truth is hidden because of:
- past trauma
- living a life that society or your family expects rather than what is right for you
- distractions of a modern and noisy world
Connect with us to see if an spiritual journey could be for you. Many participants report that the clarity and vision gained in one or 2 sessions replaces years of traditional remedies.
It can be a lightning rod of liberation and illumination of self, as it puts you in the mode to listen to your inner guide.
Furthermore, our setting in the Rainforest naturally enhances your connection with yourself and puts you in the mode for reflection and healing.
For the last 25 years, we have hosted transformational retreats for those who seek purpose, are looking to heal, find answers or simply disconnect and destress.
We only work with highly experienced and well-trained guides who hail from a long lineage of the shaman, who will help prepare you and ensure a safe and effective experience. We also have a medical center with fully qualified doctors close by.
The effect of the serene and secluded Rainforest on healing cannot be overstated. Modern science has proven nature to be a powerful healer that quiets your mind and enhances your sense of wellbeing and opens your heart.
This environment is ideal for healing because it provides a tranquil sanctuary for self-reflection, meditation, and mindfulness while preparing and after the ceremony.
Your safety is our top priority. You will undergo a strict screening process that will determine if you are the right candidate for this ceremony. The intensity of the journey is not for everyone, and it takes an experienced guide to determine who can safely go through the ceremony.
The 4 Step Process To The New You
Our expert experienced guides will guide you on a 4 step process designed to help you achieve the transformation you seek.
Step 1 – Grounding – The Soul Cannot Speak Unless the Mind Is Quiet
Commence your transformative journey enveloped by nature’s soothing embrace within the Rainforest. Deepen the sense of calm and foster your healing state with guided meditation and breathwork. This is an essential precursor to prepare you to look deep within, where all your weaknesses, strengths, insights & answers reside.
Step 2 – Refine your intentions with Guided Mindful Preparation
You will not get the insights and answers you need unless you are very clear about your intentions. And they are very personal. Examples are:
What is causing me to feel lost and stuck and how can I find a way forward
I feel empty like something is missing in my life and i want to know why
How do i cope, adapt and find inner peace during this challenging time in my life
Why do i let my fears and insecurities from trying things i want or forming fulfilling relationships
I am carrying all this trauma within me and want to be free of it
I am a slave to my anxiety and depression and i do not want to feel like this anymore
Healing and finding a way forward cannot happen without setting clear intentions. WIth the help of guided reflective practices like mindful breathwork meditation, you will gain insights and find crystal clarity around your intentions. These intentional exercises will start to uncover truths and insights so you can become very clear on your intentions.
Be it healing, finding purpose, changing negative patterns & habits or generally taking charge of your life and moving forward with peace, serenity & confidence.
Step 3 – Insights and Revelations Through Spiritual Healing Ceremonies
Enter into the ceremonies under the watchful eyes of leaders who have helped thousands find healing, peace and purpose where there was none before. Experience profound insights, visions, emotions,answers as truths, answers and understanding long buried within your subconscious is revealed in a lighting rod of enlightenment.
Surrender to and trust the process and allow revelations to flow. You will get clarity on why you are where you are. And what has you stuck.
Step 4 – Integration – A New You by forming new patterns, thinking, beliefs & habits
This is where the leaders’ experience will help you interpret the revelations you received during your journey. Reflect on the insights gained, employing mindfulness to assimilate these revelations into your life. You will gain a deeper understanding of where you have fallen short and why. Develop a prescription to attain the life you want through:
- Deeper understanding of what was limiting you and how to overcome
- forming new patterns & releasing limiting beliefs
- adopting new reactions in the face of challenges and triggers.
This integration nurtures lasting transformation, fostering alignment with clarity, resilience, purpose, and a profound sense of interconnectedness within yourself and the world around you.

In her words, “Embracing my pain has been an iron rod in my life. I’ve made my weaknesses my strengths. I sought refuge from a very early age in the quiet moments within a child pose held in a dark closet. I found freedom in losing my way in the forest. I have felt the vastness of diversity while floating upon the warm sea. I gained clarity from moments of silence that stretched for days and then years. I understand the shifting nature of the human mind because it was a matter of life and death to the youngest version of me. I’ve learned that nourishing and caring for my body, mind, and soul is an obligation I accepted at birth. I am a lightning rod for transformation. When you cross my path, you are in the midst of a personal transition. I know this with unabashed certainty. In the times of my own chaos, I have trained myself to extinguish my own voice to allow for the supreme self to be heard within the hum. I have inked into my skin a daily reminder of the message received when I truly paused. When I truly listened. I am a lightning rod for chaos. When you cross my path, you are in the midst of a personal transition. We have been brought together to learn from each other. I will remind you how to listen. You will remind me how to hear.”
Stephanie formally immersed herself in the study and practice of Sankhya philosophy, Yoga, Ayurveda, Curanderismo, Mindfulness, Herbalism, Nurat Boran, Classical and Ecstatic Dance, and Vipassana Meditation. She has led countless students through the practices she knows to be helpful to helping people find hope and peace where there was none; healing where there was only trauma prior; adapting and coping with life transitions & most of all enabling her guests to find lasting transformation and finding a way to live a life they love.
She has guided numerous ceremonies honoring moments in lives that are all too fleeting. She shared her vulnerabilities to encourage students to do the same for healing cannot occur unless we are willing to engage with our darkest shadows and made them our friends
