Duration: 3 days

Overview

The retreat is run in a traditional manner extending from the way the plant medicine is prepared to the ancient knowledge and customs of the Shipibo and Qero cultures.

The traditional base of the retreat is tempered with modern medical practices to ensure our guest safety and allow them to assimilate the experience in the best way possible.

The retreat includes two amazonian vine ceremonies.

For spiritual and mental preparation before your retreat, we recommend to you meditate, pray, do yoga or practice any disciplines familiar to you from your own religion or faith more than usually.

If you do not have a religious practice, try an honesty prayer in the morning and at night, it can be very helpful! As the founder of Etnikas says, you can have the best shamans of the Universe (Christ, Buddha, Krishna,) conducting ceremonies for you, but if your heart does not want to change anything nothing will happen.

No one but you can change your destiny, not even God, he is father not boss. Only you have the power to change your destiny. Your ‘heart’ is in fact the best shaman in the universe.

The best attitude to approach the retreat is to be as positive as you can. The right attitude should include honesty, love, patience, humility, respect, courage and a strong mental / spiritual determination.

Approaching with these values will result in a much fruitful experience.
