This Shipibo Plant Medicine retreat is a deep dive into embodied experience guided by nature, the elements and the world of the plants. This 7 Night inclusive plant medicine retreat (4 Ceremonies) interweaves ritual, embodied movement, breathwork and creative expression for an unforgettable journey of transformation. You will be supported to shed unneeded belief patterns and connect to the free and joyful expression of your essence.
We have the honor to be supported by renowned Shipibo healers Maestro Segundo and his wife Maestra Teolinda and their apprentice son Jeyny Alexsander. The maestros have spent this last year going deeply into their own study - dieting and investigating deeply into the wisdom of the plants in ceremony. They have emerged from this time period with incredible strength and insight, excited to support you in this deep healing journey!
Classes and daytime sessions aim to support and inform the work in ceremony and create a deeper connection to the energetic realms of the plants, and the Shipibo culture. This retreat aims to support you to free your authentic expression, nourish joyful creativity and learn to connect to the elements to create health, harmony and balance in your daily life.
Join us to explore the following themes:
4 Plant Medicine Ceremonies
Daily embodiment practices including movement, breathwork and meditation
Unlocking your individual wisdom and gifts
Transcending limiting beliefs, negative patterns and programming
Practicing reciprocity with nature and nourishing life with creative beauty
Learning about Shipibo ancestral wisdom

Our setting is Reunion, a non profit healing center dedicated to the preservation of plant medicine and ancestral wisdom. Nestled on Playa Pan de Azúcar (Sugar Beach) in the northern part of Guanacaste (Chorotega Nation Land), Reunion is only a few steps from the sandy shore of the Pacific Ocean in the most desirable tropical beach district in all of Costa Rica.
This transformative experience is meant to awaken the best of the human spirit — so that we may offer our wise selves to our communities at home.
With nature as our guide and with deep reverence for the ancient teachings and the elders we are so privileged to learn from - together we tap into powerful wisdom and create space to become fully present.

The human body is the greatest technology we will ever possess- together we will dive deep to reconnect to our bodies, build resiliency and learn to navigate our internal landscape- mind, body and soul. By using framework to view our personal work through playful intelligence we are rewiring our social patterns and behaviors- we are learning to shed layers of cultural and ancestral conditioning stored deep within our bones. We are reprogramming our mind into a fierce ally. Empowerment at it's truest level- Integrity in it's purist form.
Our practices are designed to help you cultivate energy- vitality, health, creativity and longevity- learn to uncover the internal wisdom you possess.
Together we remember the ceremonial ways of life. It is time to refine our capacity to listen, to reconnect to community and to answer the call for global consciousness.
Through ancient traditions and wisdom practices we surrender to the messages that are meant for us and we reignite clear vision so that we may walk our path with confidence and with the support of nature and community.
In gratitude- we will remember to give more than we take.
