About the Ceremony
The Half Moon Altar ceremony is a traditional Native American ceremony dedicated to prayer, healing, tuning oneself, and learning about the Great Mystery of Life. We gather in front of the sacred fire and connect to the Great Spirit all night. In the morning, we receive the blessings of the morning star. And as the first rays of the sun dawn, we KNOW that from now on, things will get lighter, and we tap into this energy, and we send out the strong and clear message to the universe of how we want to improve our lives and our world in the next coming cycle. The medicine and the fire bring clarity to where there was previously confusion, flow, inspiration, and motivation to where we had stagnated, healing to where we had suffered, and again and again remind us of the original instructions of life and of the real purpose of our time on Earth. In this ceremony, we find the force to rise, grow and blossom in our life.
The estate where our retreat will take place is located among the hills covered with a dense forest. It is a very secluded and eco-friendly place where you can be filled with tranquility, feel unity with nature, take a break from the hustle and bustle and get rid of stress.
Thanks to its elevated location, it offers a magnificent view of Lake Orta and the mountains of the Monte Rosa range. A whole ten hectares with magnificent gardens, terraces, chestnut woods, meadows, and a pond will be completely at our disposal.
Group practices and integration
Integration setting and functional movement before the ceremony will help the body and mind to relax, as well as help you to let go of fear or expectation so that you are more open when receiving the plant medicine.
The beauty of the Wachuma ceremony is found in the teachings that are revealed to us. The meditative and self-reflective aspects of yoga and energetic practices can help you to bring these teachings in practical ways into your daily life.
The Temazcal is a 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 high temperature of the volcanic stones the participants will be able to achieve a state that many describe as “rebirth”:
• calmness and clarity of mind
• detoxification of the physical and energetic bodies

“Before the ceremonial retreat, I was worried and even thought of canceling the trip… scary, unknown… but then I thought that I needed this experience and everything turned out in the best way.

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…
