Plant Medicine

Join us for a shamanic plant medicine retreat. We come together as a family to look into the deeper truth of life. In this retreat setting the principal pillar of our work is Plant Medicine who supports us to see through the illusions of the mind and the belief in separateness.

Through the medicine of plant medicine, we can dive deeply into our shadows and release fears, doubts, and self-limiting beliefs we have of ourselves, our lives, and our world. Through this powerful medicine, we can fully step into our truth, our highest good, and our greatest potential.

Venue

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 the 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

This deep healing work is supported and held by an interweaving of practices and activities to create the safest and most loving environment for your journey.

This Practicing 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 plant medicine 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.
