Shamanic Medicine 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.

Special Retreats

Each year, we bring in shamans from many parts of South America to help host retreats with shamanic medicines such as Yopo and Peyote. These retreats are not upon request, but will be shared with our previous family members that have joined a Casa del Sol retreat in the past.

We also curate a sacred space to dive deeper into a vision (Vision Quest) and to honor the divine Masculine and Femenine (All Women or Men Retreat)

Preparation Dieta & Medical Guidelines

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

The preparation Dieta combines diet, contemplative practice and physical conditioning to prepare the self to be a pure container to receive the medicine.
