FAMILY SANCTUARY IN VILCABAMBA

Shamanic Wellness Retreats

Enter as an individual. Leave as Family.

We are devoted to creating an immersive healing process with ancestral plant medicines, rituals and workshops. The Casa del Sol environment was intentionally nurtured for spiritual exploration, self-growth, and reflection.

Our retreats are for those on a journey of personal growth, clarity in their life purpose, emotional and physical healing. Through the indigenous teachings, we help our family to develop a stronger spiritual connection to the world around them.

Preparation

These plant medicines work in various dimensions to purify the mind, body and spirit. They cleanse physical, emotional, and energetic impurities that have accumulated over one’s lifetime and even in the ancestral lineage. They also hold space as spiritual teachers who tend to our inner fire of deep transformation, creating a closer connection with the Divine.

The preparation Dieta (or regime) combines a food diet, as well as a lifestyle diet (emotional habits, attitudes, information we receive, and actions we engage in). Contemplative practice and physical conditioning are needed to prepare oneself to be a pure container to receive the medicine.

  • Review our Preparation Guide: and our Directions Guide 
  • Bring spending money in $20 bills or less – there are ATM’s that you can use but bills larger than $20 notes are difficult to change in this economy.
  • Check your passport expiration date – Passport expiration dates are strictly enforced in Ecuador. You must have more than 6 months remaining before the expiration of your passport or you will not be denied boarding your flight to Ecuador.
