Journey Inward To Unlock Deep Spiritual Healing & Transformation

With Josue, Ronit and Stephanie McKenzie

September 8 - 15, 2024

Join us on this journey to self-awareness through sacred ceremonies guided by caring and experienced masters. Each day of this experience has been specially curated to provide support for the enlightenment of your lifetime.

This retreat is not for those merely interested in the experience of the sacred vines, but for those who are truly ready to face their shadows and engage with themselves on an inner-worldly level. This retreat also offers practices and meditations along with herbal baths and sweat lodge gatherings will help you prepare and integrate this intense introspective journey.

The tribe of leaders is a multi-ethic diverse partnership that brings a modern approach to these ancient practices . We come from Costa Rica, India, Israel and United States. We gather the first night for a gentle opening to help you land from the physical journey with a long grounding yin yoga practice with meditation.

Dinner follows with a bountiful spread of vegan delicacies specially created to support the plant medicine experiences.

The second day continues with grounding and anchoring in the environment to allow for intention to be very clear before we journey through the ether.

We will open and close the day with guided practices of mindful movement, breath work and mediation.

The meals are sequenced in honor of your bodies needs to digest this experience. No worries. Just eat.

On day three a feeling of reverence arrives as we make the final preparations through herbal baths and dedication of fasting with intention.

Then we surrender to the guidance of the leaders, sacred vines and listen to their songs.

The next day is dedicated to rest, recovery and reconciliation with the truths of the experience. A gentle day with gentle foods.

The fifth day we return to our mats and allow ourselves to receive the outpouring of benefits these journeys brought.  We continue with mindful movement, breath work and meditation for integrating what we learn.

Day six we celebrate with a Cacao ceremony guided by Rosa from the BriBri nation.

Then we feast and dance with live local Caribbean music.

This retreat will feel like an eternity and a split second all at once.  It’s awesome. It’s powerful.

I understand the shifting nature of a human mind. I’ve learned that nourishing…
