Experience Complete Wellness

Each Day We’ll Restore One Chakra…

Day 1: Friday

We will begin with our 1st or EARTH Chakra and connect with Mother Earth with an Incan “K’intu” ritual and guided meditation in the Pachamama Garden. Treat yourself to a flower bath under the stars.

Day 2: Saturday

We honor the WATER Chakra elements on a breathtaking hike with a sacred water “Yaku” ceremony. There will be time for an optional personal flower essence consultation before our restorative Yin Yoga class.

Day 3: Sunday

After flow yoga to move our FIRE energy, we will be invited to experience an authentic coca-leaf reading followed by an Andean offering “despacho.” We will release our despacho to the Andean mountain spirits “Apus” in an outdoor fire ceremony.

Day 4: Monday

After a nurturing yoga class, we expand our HEART Chakra with a heart-opening Cacao ceremony and crystal bed therapy to align our energies. Spend some time alone in our “Sonqo” garden to hear what your heart is telling you.

Day 5: Tuesday

Following an expressive yoga class, we focus on our THROAT Chakra. Experience sound healing by an inspired local musician with amazing instruments. There will also be an option for a Temazcal (sweat lodge) and cold plunge pool.

Day 6: Wednesday

We are now ready to open our THIRD-EYE, or 6th Chakra with an optional San Pedro ceremony or a vision quest to a sacred Incan Cave. Walk through our Spiral Garden and witness the full expression of your inner and outer vision.

Day 7: Thursday

What a week! With our 7 senses and chakras highly attuned, we sit by our 1000 year-old Lucuma tree or “Crown” Chakra garden to integrate all that we have learned and healed on this journey through the 7 Chakra Gardens.
