Ceremonial hike with sacred cactus plant Awakolla
Experience a full-day immersive ceremony with one of the most powerful female spiritual leaders and traditional healers, Andrea Calderon. We will start our journey with a day Huachuma ceremonial hike in nature, we will reach energetically powerful locations where we will make spiritual offerings and connect with the energy of those places to tap into our own inner powers and fully embrace our highest frequency.
Throughout the day, Andrea will guide you through the ceremony, sharing her ancient wisdom and practices to help you release anything that is not serving your highest good and fully align with your soul’s purpose.
We will come back from the ceremonial hike to solidify our intentions with a purification ritual of ancient sweat lodge tradition, Tamazcal, and a special healing plant bath that will cleanse your energy and leave you feeling rejuvenated.
We will finish the day with a family-style dinner with the community of participants and celebrate the spiritual merits that we have received throughout the day.
Villa San Giulio in Lake Orta, Italy
If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place for you! The house is located on a sunny hill on the edge of a wooded area, 3 km from the shore of Lake Orta and the mystical place of power – Orta San Giulio. A bird’s-eye view of the mountains and lakes is unbelievable. In a beautiful, light, and spacious villa, that is completely immersed in greenery, you will feel one with nature and yourself.
Group practices and integration
The “Power Walk” before the ceremony will prepare the body and mind, as well as help you let go of fear or expectation so that you are more open when receiving the plant medicine.
The beauty of the Huachuma ceremony is found in the profound insights and teachings revealed to us. Through deep reflection, we can integrate these teachings into our daily lives and transform them into lasting changes that enrich our lives.
Sunset and sunrise sweat lodge ceremonies
The Temazcal is an indigenous sweat lodge ceremony, a ritual that has lasted for more than a thousand years!
The Temazcal is a low round structure with a rather low entrance.
During the ritual, heated stones are brought into the bath, which is periodically poured with herbal infusions in the process.
Thanks to the properties of various healing herbs and the high temperature of the volcanic stones the participants will be able to achieve a state that many describe as “rebirth”:

So that’s why it is called a journey??? (“trip” on the slang.. but let’s be respectful). I have been to the places where you can’t just get by plane, where you don’t need to cross the borders or show your passport. Even the time have no power there. I have seen the legends. I discovered…
