Ayllu Medicina 7 Day Medicine of the Heart Retreat, in Manglaralto, Ecuador, offers Ayahuasca and San Pedro retreats by the shores of the Pacific Ocean. With a strong focus on ancient traditions, here ayahuasca and san pedro are offered to guests to support their personal transformations.
What unites our guests is that sense of a calling…is your life, is your soul, as full as it should be?
At Ayllu Medicina we know all about this feeling.
We have lived it, it’s why we are here, and it’s what we seek to answer. We want to help you find peace, love, dignity, and appreciation for those around you. And how does one find such transcendence? At Ayllu Medicina we believe you hold that power, and our job, and that of the plant medicines we work with, is to help you find it.
Did it ever occur to you that medicine and meditation share a Latin root word? Meditation plays a central role in our approach; we introduce it throughout our ceremonies and integration work. Repetition and consistency make it that much more likely that you will continue this practice when you return home.
Your time with us is rich and full. From our temezcal to our yoga, purges, breathwork, and our close proximity to the beach and world-class surfing, we promise that you will find activities to enhance your journey, and your memories of this place. We do hope you reach out to speak with us today!
We believe everyone can transform their life, and are here to support you to do so through your journey. In this sacred plant medicine retreat, you will have the opportunity to explore the self and understand the true nature of your reality. The plant medicines are known to cleanse the mind, body, and spirit and are healing both physically and emotionally.
The master plants are here to assist you on your journey to begin the inner work, expand your consciousness, and to reconnect to all that is.
This plant medicine retreat is a unique opportunity to sit with and learn about ancient practices in a serene, tropical oasis in coastal Ecuador.
The experience is a retreat – meaning a time to withdraw from your everyday reality to reflect and bring more intention into your consciousness. During this time of retreat, we will work to reorganize all the dimensions of our being into one direction – including our body, mind, emotion, and energy.
In our Ayllu Medicina community, we believe that a new way of life is possible living in peace, love, dignity, and joy.
