Transformational Retreat in Ecuador

In this retreat, you will focus on balancing and harmonizing your energy centers, also called chakras. Feeling into your inherent flow of energy, revealing well-hidden reasons for blockages, and strengthening the ability to read subtle messages of your intuition are marvelous challenges that we are excited to face together with you. You will board the alchemical stages of transformation. Collect your shadows, triggers, flaws, pains, and doubts that form the “prima materia” which shall transform into spiritual gold. Gather deep background knowledge while applying the principles of transmutation to your very personal process.

Bromelia Lodge offers a place to heal, learn about healing, meditation, sacred plant ceremonies, and yoga. The lodge is integrated in the surrounding natural settings of the property, so the natural setting never has been altered.

Bromelia Lodge has 12 double occupancy rooms all set with the natural beauty of the property. Your room will have an en-suite bathroom, hot water, air conditioner, fan, mosquito net doors and windows, and Wi-Fi. You do not need to bring towels or sheets. If you want to do laundry, we can make it happen.


Every morning you will kick-start your day with a physical activity reaching from XiGong and Kundalini yoga to Yin yoga (you do not need any experience). Both weeks will include a sweat lodge session, a cacao ritual, a Kundalini dance, and a mushroom ceremony.

Chakra week (6th -14th of November 2021)

You will gather for the Opening Circle on the 6th of November at 7:00 p.m., which is why it is recommended that you arrive during the day to settle in before the start of the retreat. The Closing Circle on the 14th of November will end around noon.

Alchemy week (14th - 22nd of November 2021)

Your first activity starts on the 15th of November at 8:00 a.m. The last gathering is planned for the evening of the 21st, which is why it is recommended that you depart on the 22nd.
